Is the year really almost over??!!??

I can't believe this year has already gone by so fast. The new year will be here before I know it. SO what fills my mind when I think of another year almost over? Did I do enough with my kids. I really hope so. As I look back at all the unaccomplished projects at home I have to say yes. Instead of finishing of the painting in the house and deep cleaning every nook and cranny, we vacationed this summer. We had great times at the pool and with family and friends. Is my house in the perfect order I dream of, no. Have I gone to every possible (fun, boring, inconvenient, special) activity at school that is possible (with my kids). YES! So I can look back at all the things I have done with my kids and be happy about the memories we are making together. I know this time will pass all to soon and I dread the day they no longer want me around at every little thing. I already am no longer cool, but a huge embarrassment, but at;;east they still want me around. I have a little over a month to finish the year off the way I want. Giving my kids my all and then some, but still giving myself my needed time too. I love you kids and hope you enjoy all our moments together as much as I do.

Halloween Party

We got to party for Halloween this year at Kristy's house. It was a lot of fun...spooky eats, bobbing for apples, carving pumpkins, kids running wild, and yummy treats. We were even lucky enough to have Logan for a few days so she got to go with us. Thanks for the fun!

Carving Pumpkins

I am not big on carving pumpkins (I hate the guts, they stink and it kills my hands), but the kids love it. So we let them have at it and they love it. I just wish we hadn't left it to the last possible minute, like every year, and that my pictures were better. Oh well. They had a good time and I watched as I cleaned up dinner dishes.

I feel so lucky to have so many great people that bless my life. I have great friends, a wonderful hubby, beautiful kids and a great family. One person I am feeling especially lucky to have in my life today is my Sis and friend Mikael (all my sis's are great friends). I had the best laugh tonight courtesy of Mooch. I love how you always make me laugh. I wish I could have half your whit. I am so glad that you find me funny too, because not many people besides myself do. I love to laugh and it seems that I am not doing nearly enough of that these days, so Thank You for the pick me I I have been in such need of. Love you Sis!!!
