So tomorrow, we are going to go to Aubreys grandparents house out here in Caldwell for Thanksgiving dinner. We have all three children so hopefully Aubrey and I will get a chance to sit down and eat, I will be thankful for that if we do. By the time we dish the last child up the first child will be finished eating and be ready for seconds.

My parents decided to do a 'Black Friday' dinner this year. This makes it easier on us because we don't have to run around town all day wearing down the kids(and us!) trying to spend tons of time with two familys in one day. Now, this year, we will have the hustle and bustle divided into two days. I am thankful for that.

I am also thankful that Aubrey got a job! She was working at Sephora and though it was good money she never got to see the family because she was always getting slammed with hours. She stuck it out for a while until they got a new manager that she disliked and that was the last straw that broke the gift horse's back. So she quit. It was not too big of a deal because I work about 10-20 hours a week and I also still get unemployment. Just this week she got a call back from the manager at Bouquet in downtown Boise and out of the group interview of 20 people they liked her the best(and who could blame them!). A job being a bartender works great with our schedule because she only works late nights(when the kids are sleeping anyways), and only works about three times a week but it will still bring in the same amount of money as a full time job(if not more after tips. Especially someone as stunning as Aubrey will probably bring in a dumptruck full of tips). It also leaves time for family during the day and class schedule during the day. As for me I will continue working at the school in the testing center during the days.
