It’s begining to look a lot like Christmas

[caption id="" align="alignleft" width="269" caption="Sniper Christmas Tree 2010"][/caption] Well, Thanksgiving has already come and past. We loaded our bewldys with all manner of foodstuffs. SJ rocked our faces off with a stellar turkey and we had a great time with family and friends. With turkey day, comes black Friday. Knowing we had to get a few things for lil' Snipes, we headed out for some midnight sales. To our surprise the stores weren't all that bad when we got there. There were some lines here and there, but for the most part it wasn't as cray cray as we thought it would be. However, as the night went on and…

Thanksgiving break-2009: Sniper Style Part 3 (The next day…)

[caption id="" align="alignleft" width="240" caption="Not just 1 or 2, but 3 dancing machines!"][/caption] Our week of thanksgiving bliss was trucking right along. I had good food and traditions with the Turner's and lots of rest and cooking in Dwood with the boys, so the only thing left was turkey time with the Birney's (Sniperjess' family). For those of you that know us...the Birney house is always an interesting experience. It's untraditional, and slightly unorthodox...but it's always a good time with genuine intentions from all. My growing time in Dwood lately lead to what I would call a "catch up" session when we got there. The adult beverages were poured and…

Thanksgiving break – 2009: Sniper Style pt. 2 (Thanksgiving Day)

[caption id="" align="alignleft" width="192" caption="Roosevelt, meet Turner"][/caption] In true Turner style the morning got started with a big plate of food and a lot of scrambling around. After breakfast Jess and I started in on the turkey, gravy base, and more chopping of vegetables. You'd think that after like three days of preparing food, we'd have all this mess done. That wasn't really the case. There always seemed to be more carrots, onions, celery, taters... oh wait. No potatoes to cut up those had already been taken care of and were in the fridge setting up. Oh, the taters! Let me describe the ways I love thee. Ok, I'm done.…

Thanksgiving break – 2009: Sniper Style pt. 1

[caption id="" align="alignleft" width="159" caption="Maybe YOU should relax"][/caption] It all started with a trip to Burger King for some New Moon paraphernalia. I got Jess' place and we got ready and headed off for some sushi, time with friends, and a gaggle of tweens and/or begrudgingly happy boyfriends and husbands. The movie was ish at best. It was better than Twilight, but then again, Twilight was a pretty terrible movie. There were some decent fight scenes, a fast car or two, some sparkly "vampires", enough emo looks to make a rainbow cry, and and then some credits. That pretty much sums up the movie, or at least what I recall…

What are YOU thankful for??

SniperBen, Thanksgiving is right around the corner, so what better time to tell you how THANKful I am to have you in my life. Thank you for loving me. For buying me flowers. For making me breakfast in bed. For running with me (and always stopping when I need to stop even though you don't need to). For saying "Good Morning Sunshine" every.single.morning. For paying attention to small details. For adjusting to life with a 7 year old. For your surprises. For ALWAYS asking how my day is and actually caring about the details of it. For still opening the car door for me. For taking me on dates. For…
