Weeks Review

I hope that everyone had a wonderful Turkey Day. I know I did. It went by quickly. We went to my folks for the holidays. The girls brought everything they could think of with them (like we were staying there for weeks) but they kept busy. I think we all had a good time. But one thing I forgot to do was take a picture. :( I will have to make up for it in the coming weeks leading up to Christmas.

Speaking of Christmas...I DID NOT go Black Friday shopping...I was sleeping! Well, until about 630 when my youngest daughter decided to wake me up. Grrr. Why do they do that?

It was my 10 year anniversary yesterday. Can't believe that 10 years we did this:

No not married! hahaha Happy 10 years honey!

Today we are having a little UF vs. FSU get together with some friends and family. Just something low-key b/c I thought of it (duh) on Thursday. Next year we'll have to plan something a little early. Going to the store to pick up a couple of things for it this morning with the kids. Neal's gotta work for a short bit.

I've been adding things into my store to for my Black Friday Weekend Extravaganza. Here are some pieces:

You can find these and many more pieces at Doohickies & Such. All items have been marked down 20%! There are even scrapbook supplies in store too!

Support your handmade stores!

Tomorrow isn't getting here fast enough!

Tomorrow will be here before I know it. Going away for the weekend with not an idea of where we are going or what we'll be doing. I DON'T LIKE NOT HAVING A PLAN!!! I'm excited to just be getting away, not 100%...maybe 50% (right now...ask me tomorrow). I'm sad that I'll miss Morgan's game. I'm sad that I won't be there to make her all pretty for her pictures. I know she'll be fine and that she'll look cute regardless of what her hair looks. I just like have an idea of my destination and maybe some incling of an idea of what there is to do where we are going. Oh well...let it be. I'm sure it'll be fine.

Well, I'll be back Tuesday. Have a great weekend!

Rough night...great day so far

Just found out that I got 3 sales in my ETSY shop and I also have a blog review that was done on my shop! :) Here is a link to it.

Let's see...what's going on now...

I have one sick little man. He had a fever last night and we both didn't get much sleep. He ended up falling asleep on my lap last night on the couch. That is NOT like him at all. He's always so go-go-go. So I knew that he wasn't feeling that well. When he fell asleep I layed him on the couch and I got up to make popcorn for Neal and myself. He ended up waking up and got up to sit next to me. We were watching Monday Night Football and he just sat and watched football and asked for popcorn. LOL He wasn't feeling too bad then. the night went on his fever spiked up again. DRATS! Finally when I was ready to go to bed (of course he wasn't) I took him in my room and he feel asleep on my bed...for like 20 minutes. I was soooo tired. We ended up on his floor in his room. I was dozing on and off while he played with all his toys. You should have seen the mess this morning! I finally gave up and told him to go to bed (after I gave him more meds) and left the room. He fell asleep and I my bed!

This morning he had a low grade fever and we've just been hanging out, doing laundry, cleaning house with the windows open. Enjoying the nice breezes that are coming from TS Ida. He seems to be doing much better. Thankfully.

Girls are in school, nap time is near and I've got one hungry belly! Gonna be productive now. Tata.

Halloween '09

Halloween was fun! The kids had a great time and I think so did the parents. Colleen brought over the trailer and we hooked it up to the RZR. Then we decorated it with purple and orange lights and of course cobwebs. Ewww!

The kids loaded up, including the dog, and off we went to an neighborhood w/in ours. There were tons of kids, golfcarts, trailers like ours and even floats! Oh, can't forget the haunted houses made in peoples garages and porches. So much fun. Here are some pictures of the evening:

Sydney was a senorita

Colton was a Lil' Ninja. Look at him trying to smile for the camera!

Morgan was a bride.

And Tallulah was getting a ride on the trailer with Aunt Tammy. Our little butterfly got hot quick and a little tired.

The most funniest part of the evening was when we all came back to our house, freshened up a bit and decided to do more tricking down our street. There was this one house all decked out with orange lights, tombstones on the front lawn, spiders and webs and then up at the front door was a caldron with candy and a note. Above the candy was a dummy dressed like Jason (hockey mask and all). Well, when the kids were reading the note to take candy the started to grab and then all of a sudden this dummy starts moving and hacking away and they girls just screamed and ran!!! WHAT A HOOT!!! It was like watching a blooper or funny video on TV!
HILARIOUS! And I'm still chuckling thinking about it! Good times.
