Thursday, I keep thinking today is Friday! I guess I am just ready for Halloween, along with all the kids!
Today, I am cleaning up, just seems it can never be all done. My parents in CO are getting a ton of snow. Their first big one!
I saw a quote the other day I thought was so great!

"Cleaning your house while your kids are still growing up is like shoveling the walk before it stops snowing." ---Phyllis Diller

I am missing my hubby, and my slippers. Two things that keep me warm. I sent my slippers back to my sister to fix them for me. I hope she will hurry, and make them extra strong so I don't ever have to be without them again. At least it isn't snowing here or I would really be missing them! On Halloween it is going to be almost 80! YUCK!
I better get back to cleaning.....
I hope everyone has a great Thursday!

Today my H was off of work. We went pumpkin' hunting after Sam got out of school. She had a good day she said, She did get the H1N1 shot today at school. She and Jack get the regular flu shot tomorrow. Then on Wed. she has her 2 allergy shots. Poor Girl!

It was a nice fall day here today. Oh I loved it... the trees are starting to change and the crisp in the air.
Jack enjoyed the pumpkin hunting, but he really enjoyed watching the jets fly over every few minutes and they are so loud he would run to who ever was closest to him and after they would pass he would say, "scary... but I like it! " It was so funny. Then he would say oh here comes another one! He kept talking to the pumpkin guy and the poor guy had no idea what he was saying. Jack had to have all the pumpkins lined up, just like he does his cars.

Today at school Samantha found out if she won President! The whole school voted on Thursday. She had to be to school early today because they were going to announce it first thing. So when I picked her up this afternoon she said she didn't win. =( I guess there was 8-10 kids from every class that ran for President. With 9 classes that is a lot of kids!

Tonight my H surprised us! He called around noon and said he would be really busy all day, and then was going out to dinner with all the guys from work. So he wouldn't be able to call me until later. So around 7:30 I was giving Jack his bath, and the bathroom door opened as it always does and I thought it was Sam, but this time Jack was looking at the door funny, I thought ok that's not Sam she would be talking by now. So I turn around and it was my Hubby! It was such a nice surprise! Jack was so excited he said "DADDY HOME"

This weekend we didn't do much. We went to the mall, I had a coupon I needed to use, for Jack. My H's mom came with us. She took Sam school shopping b/c she told her she would a while ago. Sam got some skinny jeans, I am not sure if I like them, but she loves them.
Jack is feeling better. He is loving his cars still and would rather play cars than sit down and eat. And doesn't understand why Sam and I would want to sit and eat a meal and not play cars.
I did also do some decorating a bit. I got all my ideas from JUST A GIRL, I love her blog.

Tonight the dog drooled, and a few minutes later I looked at J and he had his lips on the floor, I asked him what he was doing and he answered.... I just drooled like the dog did. hahaa

I painted Sam's nails, she is running for President at school, along with every other kid. She has to do a speech on Thursday on the TV. I went into the school with her this morning to hang up her posters.
Sam also is practicing her Violin, they haven't learned to use the bow yet! She can't wait. She was playing with a CD and it sounded very good! I am so EXCITED! She was excited when she heard they were going to play with the High Schoolers. If that would have been me I would have not been happy to hear that at all.

I can't stop thinking about the sadness. My Best Friend, lost her mother on Wednesday. I have such a heavy heart with sadness. She is very strong just like her mother was. So I know she will be fine. But I cannot imagine loosing my mother, they are the one person who is always on your side, and there to help you with everything.
My thoughts and prayers are with her and her family during this difficult time.
Although it’s difficult today to see beyond the sorrow,
May looking back in memory help comfort you tomorrow.

My neighbor also lost her fight with cancer on Wednesday. So my thoughts and prayers are with her husband and family.

Inside my house, Jack is still fighting his cold. But I know he is doing ok. He is acting just like a 2 year old. We are all missing my H alot. Jack keeps asking "Daddy home?"
Samantha didn't have such a good week school wise, she had and E grade (that is an F) and she kept it from me for a week! Then she took another test on Thursday and got a D. So her bedtime has been moved up. She is realizing she needs to work harder! ( I HOPE)

I hope everyone has a great weekend. We are going to put up Halloween decor.

Today I took Jack to the doctor, he has been so fussy all weekend. They tested him for strep, but came back negative. He was wheezing so the doctor gave him an inhaler. Right now he is sleeping!
He hasn't sleept the last 2 nights, so neither have I! I am going to take a nap hopefully! Sam woke up with her nose running. I guess it's the season! They don't get their flu shots until the end of the month.

Friday we took Sam out of school and went to Busch Gardens. The kids had a blast, the played in the water and got soaked.
Saturday- My father in law and his wife came over and my H cooked on the grill.

Sunday- I cleaned house and my H watched football.
