Can't believe it is almost Turkey Day!

We survived the NorEaster, I have never seen so much water. It just sat over us and wouldn't move. Our backyard was a lake!

I can't believe it is almost Thanksgiving. This month has flown by! We have been busy with Dr appt.. Jack has been very fussy since I got home last weekend from my shopping trip to Delaware. Friday I took him to the dr. she said his ear was red... I don't really know what that means but she put him on an antibiotic, and he also got the H1N1 shot while we were there, that made him really mad. Yesterday he had his appt with the ENT, to check his tubes, they are still in.

Sam had a book report due today, so we have been working on that, she did a great job!
We have been busy shopping for Christmas we are almost done just a few people left! I have never been this ahead of the game! I am feeling so good about it! I am going to try and get the kids pictures done soon and my Christmas cards.

The weather has been crazy, hot.... cold, hot.... cold, I am ready for COLD!

Nov. 10, 2009

This week is a crazy week, we have a lot going on. Sam was out of school today and Tomorrow. She is having a friend sleepover. Jack wouldn't take a nap today, so he went to bed early. He thought Sam's friend was here to play with him!
Jack has been so funny, when you say something he doesn't want to hear, he will say; "What I can't hear you." He still says but for button. That was making Sam and her friend crack up.
Last night I said Jack it is time for bed. He said, "NO, I need to play cars!" I said, nope. It's time to go get into the bath." He said "NO." Then of course I say, "excuse me?" So then every time I said something to him he would say EXCUSE ME.
I have started to think about Christmas, I know it would be here before I know it. So there is a consignment shop that opened just down the street. So I have been taking things in there that Jack doesn't need anymore, and I just keep it as store credit. I have found lots of Gymboree clothes with tags still on for Jack. I snatched this up for him for Christmas. So I got it for FREE! I know if he doesn't play with it Sam will. I remember being a kid and always wanting a kitchen with a fridge.

I have been busy, making things. I made a wreath for our front door. It only cost me $4.00. my H took Jack and gathered all the acorns! He had a blast! He would say this one has a hat on, this one doesn't have a hat. It was cute!

I thought it turned out great!

Yesterday it was so funny Jack said I need to get on the computer with Grandma. I said go ahead and call her and ask her. So I handed him the phone and he asked her to get on the computer and she of course said yes. He was so funny showing her his toys. He told me to put Grandma down. He was talking about putting the laptop on the floor.

Sam took her violin test today and passed so she got to move on and she is now allowed to use the bow! Very exciting.... 2 months into school and she is finally allowed to use the bow. I just laugh.

My hubby is home, to the wild house. He got Jack a new car set and Jack is loving it!
We are so glad he is back, we missed him tons!

I need to think about birthday's this month, there are lots! I know this month is going to go fast! So I am going to try and say on it!

My dear sister said my slippers have been put in the mail, oh I hope I get them soon... I miss them lots! Thanks so much Sis for fixing them, you rock!

Happy Wednesday to all!

Halloween Fun!

Jack the Jack o Lantern, Samantha was Nacy Drew, and Scooby was Bat DOG!
Jack was upset because he didn't want to sit down and get his picture taken.

We had a great Halloween, Ma-maw (Brenda) came over and I cooked Ranch Chicken and Samantha's friend came over and we went out to teach Jack how Trick or Treating works! He was very scared at first but after a while he got the hang of it. At the last few houses he was in front of the girls to get his candy. If the people put out their bowl he would just keep grabbing candy until I would have to say NO MORE! He would also forget to say trick or treat, but he always said thank you. It was so much fun to watch him!
It was very Humid and hot, poor Jack was sweating in his costume, but he didn't care he was having so much fun, by the time we were almost done he was dragging his pumpkin candy holder on the ground it was too heavy for him, but he wouldn't let us help him.
