Whew....and Halloween finally!

Whew...this weekend was nonstop. I had tons to do and here we are at Monday morning with what else...hardly any of it done. I have all the winter clothes but haven't put summer clothes away. It's hard here in the south because it can be 30 in the morning and 70 by 2pm. I think it's time to put them away though. I need to clean desperately! We have a bathroom that has been getting renovated and it's been in limbo mode for months now. I was wanting to try and paint it to get things started for completion but that didn't happen either. I had grocery shopping to do and that's one of the few things I did get done...that and a few loads of laundry..although I'm not sure you can really count the laundry since I still have 5 or 6 loads to do. We went to my dad's on Saturday night and had dinner over there and most of the day before that David was working so it was harder to get things done with him gone. Isn't it amazing how they really don't do anything around the house when they're here but it's more difficult when they're not? I say it's because they entertain the kids at least when they're around :) Sunday I grocery shopped,did a few loads of laundry and cooked. That took me to the end of the day so everything else went out the window! Oh well there's always next weekend I guess...and most likely next month for the bathroom :)

David starts a new job today so please keep him in your prayers. He's been doing work on his own for the past month and decided to forego the original company.

Thank you all for your wonderful words of support and prayers last week when I was having a hard time. I truly appreciate each and every one of them! I continue to be amazed at the blogging world and how united it is. I have made friends here that I never thought possible!!! I still have alot of soul searching to do and I am trying to dig into that but things are better so hopefully it's only up from here. I will try and fill you all in later on!

For now...as promised...here's a few Halloween pics. I have some on another camera also but those didn't get loaded this weekend either. I was lucky to get to this one :) I was going to rearrange these pics in order but for some reason my right clicker on my mouse isn't working right now so I guess they'll have to be backwards....hope that isn't indicating how my Monday is going to go.

Here's to a great week everyone!!!




Jacob was an army man and Caleb was superman. When I was dressing Jacob David asked me about face paint...I didn't even think about that. It would have been really cool. Think we'll that next year!



Here's Caleb walking on the street. He loved trick or treating! He wanted to go to every house no matter how long it took him and remember his legs are awhole lot shorter! Funny thing was when he got up to a house he wanted to go inside all of them...he tried to go in the door several times! I just cracked up!! Mister Independence though didn't want to hold anyones hand so you can imagine how that went.



My superman! I just love this kid!!!



Here's my baby girl! She was a chick...I think the costume was supposed to be a chicken but I called her a chick :) Oh...I could have just eaten her up she was soooo cute!



Here they all are now. Lucas was a zombie and I was very surprised that he kept his mask on the entire time...we were gone for about 2 hours so I was shocked. We ended up going to another neighborhood across the street because apparently the people in ours don't celebrate Halloween anymore. There were hardly lights on at all. We hit the jackpot in the next neighborhood though. Check this out: there was a guy that gave out a goody bag and each bag had $5 in it. Can you believe that? I was shocked...I was curious as to how much money he gave out...we never had that when I was a kid. I don't ever even remember getting money at all. David was joking that he was going to go home and switch costumes several times and keep going to that same house! Lucky kids now a days!

Very nice pictures. What a fun time! I love it when the kids trick-or-treat and try to get in the houses or just stand there until the people give them even more candy. Cracks me up! Good luck with the job. Saying a prayer!

Love the pix! Don't you love it when they really enjoy trick or treating and you can just stand back and watch. They grow so fast and it always amazes me at each stage how the time flies from one to another.
