While Mark is touring (okay working) in Germany...I'm in Mapleton, Utah being a crazy working mom! I must say, things are going well. We seem to adjust to Mark leaving...not to say that we don't miss him like crazy! I miss being able to talk to him, he is a really good listener...and we have a great way of communicating. I like having a built-in friend. And I miss that the most!! He will miss Thanksgiving this year, but I've decided to host it at my house. I have invited his parents and we'll see how things go!! Wish me luck!

As far as what we need to update...first off...Riley turned 5!! I cannot believe my baby is 5. I feel so blessed to have this little guy in our home. He is amazing. Fun. Crazy like his parents. And is such a loving, sweet boy. We took him to Pirate Pizza for his birthday. He loved it!! We also had a family party. Riley received some fun gifts, but of those...Nicky, his aunt, gave him a trip to Disneyland!! She was so sweet and invited myself and my mother-in-law along! Mark was quite jealous and hopped a plane and joined us for the final two days of the trip.

Riley loved Disneyland...he especially loved all the water rides (Bear River Rapids & Splash Mountain). It was so strange going to Disneyland and leaving my other two kids at home! But, it was fun to just focus on one child!

Halloween came and went, it was so cold during trick-or-treating. But, my kids were troopers and had a blast. Jake dressed up at the last minute, Kaycie was a hippy, and Riley was Buzz Lightyear. Call me mother of the year, but I forgot to take pictures!

I am excited for Thanksgiving, Christmas, and the New Year! It will be interesting to see where my husband ends up next! Let's hope my schedule allows me to visit him!
