Thanksgiving Fun!!

My brothers wife Amy emailed this to me... and i thought it was so funny!! So instead of forwarding it to all of you... i thought i would just post it on my blog!! Here you go!!

Thanksgiving Divorce

A man in Phoenix calls his son in New York two days before Thanksgiving and says,
"I hate to ruin your day, but I have to tell you that your mother and I are divorcing; forty-five years of misery is enough."

"Pop, what are you talking about?" the son screams.

"We can't stand the sight of each other any longer," the father says, "We're sick of each other, and I'm sick of talking about this, so you call your sister in Chicago and tell her."

Frantic, the son calls his sister, who explodes on the phone. "Like heck they're getting divorced," she shouts, "I'll take care of this!"

She calls Phoenix immediately, and screams at her father, "You are NOT getting divorced. Don't do a single thing until I get there. I'm calling my brother back, and we'll both be there tomorrow. Until then, don't do a thing, DO YOU HEAR ME?" and hangs up.

The old man hangs up his phone and turns to his wife,
"Okay," he says, "they're coming for Thanksgiving and paying their own way. Hee hee hee!"

Well, I have to apologize because blogging has taken a serious back seat in my life lately.... mostly because of the lack of bloggable information going on in our lives right now--- but it is the middle of november and Rhett has made it through his first quarter, of his second year of medical school!! Yay!!!! Finals week was last week and we are so excited it is over!! It was a very loooong week... So rhett is looking forward to a much anticipated break from the studies!!
Well, just to sum up the last couple weeks--- My little brother races fourwheelers out here in the valley every now and then, so my parents have come to visit us like three or so times in the last month or two! It has been wonderful! We LOVE company!! Poor Rhett doesnt get to enjoy it as much as me, but i love it when we have visitors!! We have mostly been busy with school and work, though... not very exciting(I know). We also went down to gilbert once and stayed the night with some friends.. which was a good little break. We got to enjoy some Costa Vida and Neilson's Frozen Custard, while we were down there!! So yum, yep that is right Neilsons, anything you want that is Utah or Mormon can be found in Gilbert or Mesa!
So other then that i did a little redecorating in our bedroom. I have had these cardboard intital things for a while... so i finally painted them and added some "bling" and then hung them with some pictures above our bed. I think it turned out pretty cute... i just wanted something above our bed... and this will have to do for now.... I still need to put pictures in the frames... but you get the idea!!
Super excited for christmas this year!!! So, i decided to make some pillows... No, mom i didnt sew, well kind of, but not really. These were placemats that i bought at HomeGoods. They were super cheap, then i bought some badding at JoAnns with a coupon. And then i pulled apart a small section of the placement and added the badding. And then hand stitched it back up. I think they are pretty cute, but i am still a little unsure. What do you think??

I also made these signs out of wood and then wood letters i painted the board and the letters and them i tried to sprinkle "snow" on top of the blue one, but it wouldnt work. I think they are okay... they are missing something though and i cant figure out what... so if you have any ideas let me know... but for now i think i will wait to hang them up.

Well there you have it... the last fifteend days in a nutshell!!
