I am trying to take advantage of Emily being home from the hospital to get our house cleaned up. It is absolutely embarassing what it looks like right now. We had some friends over last weekend (hi Lacey!) and I realized after they left how horrible my house looks right now. It seems like we are never home long enough to complete a project. Mainly what I do is just organize the crap wherever it is, and try to keep the house functioning. What I am going to start this week is really CLEANING. Not just putting things in neater piles, but finding a home or organizing system for the things. Taking more stuff to Goodwill. Giving more things away. Selling some things we don't need anymore, to make a little extra holiday money.

We are home now, and so thankful to be here! The good days more than make up for the not-so-good days. Emily is sleeping a lot lately, but when she's awake she's happy. She is always in and out and in and out of the hospital, so we love the out times. This weekend we got to spend a day at Disneyland with a bunch of friends. Emily did great! She loves going on rides, especially Small World. The girl is so happy being pushed around for hours in her wheelchair. :) We are getting ready for Thanksgiving. Cooking, cleaning, doing laundry in my brand new washing machine. It's the little things in life that make me happy sometimes. Thanks for checking in on my Princess. Things are about the same, but at least we're home. Happy for home!

You all know how often our family is home together and has time to relax. Just about never. So when we are all home and no one is at the hospital and everyone is feeling good, the last thing I want to worry about is making dinner! Thankfully there are many options for frozen dinners and treats that are easy and delicious. Right now there is a great deal going on! Look for specially-marked packages of Totino’s Pizza Rolls and Party Pizzas to stock up on everything you need for a Fun Friday Night: purchase 4 Totino’s Party Pizzas or 2 Totino’s 40 count Pizza Rolls to receive a free one-day redbox DVD promo code. With more than 27,800 locations, and available nationally at Walmart, there’s always a redbox kiosk nearby! Find the closest redbox kiosk by checking redbox.com/locations. If you haven't tried redbox for movies yet, you have got to! There is a huge variety of movies from all categories, even Blu-Ray and video games. We always find something we want to watch. There is no easier way to rent movies - you can return the movie at any redbox, it doesn't have to be the same one you got it from! By us there are redbox kiosks everywhere - Walmart, Walgreens, Stater Bros. I was lucky enough to get a special package from MyBlogSpark, thanks to Totino's! I the package was a coupon for Totino's products - and can I tell you that Jacob is now in love with Pizza Rolls? There was also a coupon for a free redbox movie, two cute pizza slice plates, a great new pizza roller, and a popcorn bucket. One of YOU reading this post can receive the same package!
