Ten On Tuesday

1.  I didn’t blog in October or November.  If you follow the blog at all, you already know that.  I’m not really sure what happened to the time of October and November.  We were just enjoying being us and I didn’t really share it here.  I’m kind of torn between keeping the blog going and stopping it altogether.  Thoughts?

2.  Halloween was fun around here.  The kids were minions and Jeremiah and I were Gru and Lucy.  These pictures are from Jeremiah’s work party…Oh and by the way, just in case you were wondering, there is no costume for Lucy.  Apparently she isn’t a big enough character.  I had to piece the whole thing together (thank you Amazon).

3.  Jamie had her first choral concert at school.  This year one of the elementary teachers and the music teacher decided to start a choral club for the elementary kids.  She was in heaven.  This girl does love to sing…

4.  Thanksgiving was grand.  It was a lovely long weekend.  We had a yummy turkey dinner with too many sides.  But it was just enough to have leftovers one night, turkey pot pie one night, and turkey enchiladas one night.

5.  We had a fun little party with some even funner friends.  There was a lot of dessert, a little more drinking, a lot more laughing, and maybe some singing.  Everyone is tone-deaf when wine is involved, right?  It was a good night.

6.  My dad’s birthday is tomorrow.  Happy Birthday Dad!  We can’t wait to celebrate when you are here next week!!

7.  That means my birthday is on Thursday.  I have already received a gift and a card in the mail (thanks for thinking of me, friends).  They are both teasing me from the counter, as I will wait until my actual day of birth to celebrate. 😉

8.  I have all of my Christmas shopping complete (aside from my own children).  This is pretty late for me.  I am usually trying to package all the gifts so they can be mailed.

9.  Now if I could get my Christmas cards addressed and mailed and the gifts mailed to various places across the country, I’d be set.  It’s a good thing I like to wrap presents.

10.  We are decorating for Christmas this weekend.  I’m so excited.  Again this is kind of late for us but I love doing it.  The real tree with it’s pine-y smell and all the lights.  It’s so magical.  This is my favorite time of the year.

Happy Tuesday!

Happy Halloween

Boo!  Gotcha, didn’t I ? 😉  We are having a fantastic Halloween Day.  Are you?  First we have our purple Witch…Gorgeous, right? But then we have the beautiful Rapunzel…Check out all that hair!  I never have to fear danger when I have Batman around…

Jacob had a party at school this morning.  He took 13 cake pops that looked like jack-o-lanterns.  At the end of school, the parents were invited to watch their parade…The girls’ parties are at the end of the day today.  I am sure it will be a great time for them.  I sent pumpkin whoopie pies with Mazie for her party (30 to be exact)and chocolate cake pops that were decorated as jack-o-lanterns with Jamie (26 to be exact).  I’m sure we will be filled in on all the fun festivities of the afternoon!

Tonight we are going to a Trunk-or-Treat but only after having guts and bones for supper…Also known as spaghetti squash and bread sticks with sauce (not pictured).  More on our Halloween adventures later.  Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween

The kids were so excited about dressing up this year.  Jamie insisted on being a black cat because she knows how to roll her tongue to purr!

Jacob wore his Thomas the Tank Engine costume from last year since he never wore it last year.  He was proud to do so too!

Mazie was supposed to be a vampire but I couldn’t quite find all the things to go with the cape.  So I bought these cute horn barrettes and we went with a vampire devil!
