What a great weekend -
I had my scrapbooking group at church friday night, and we all had a great visit. Oh, and we did manage to make a few pages, too. Monkey spent the night with a friend, and went to see Ole Miss play. Ladybug was at church with us, entertaining every one with her dancing.
Saturday was a long day- we napped, cleaned, and folded laundry. I even managed to unpack my scrapping supplies, and clean my craft room. Well, as much as I can clean it with a Ladybug running in and grabbing things.
Today was church day- Monkey went home with a friend to play, and we all had naps, a walk, and delivered afghans to the girl's home. Doesn't that sound like a great way to spend a pretty Sunday? Now it is time for lesson plans, ironing tomorrow's clothes, and bathing children. These might not sound like fun , but they are reminders of things that I am thankful for- for jobs, a home, and a precious family.
We are really looking forward to next week's vacation- just staying at home sounds pretty good to us all. Maybe we can squeeze in some crafts and baking, just for fun.
I hope you all have a great week - and be thankful!

November already? What happened to October?

So, I really meant to post in October, seeing as so much happened around here. Obviously, there was just SO much happening, that I never managed to put any news on. So sorry.

We have had several adventures- all pretty close by.

Monkey and Ladybug both loved wearing their Halloween costumes -both at the 'trunk or treat' at church, and 'trick or treating'this past weekend. Monkey was pretty worried that people would "think he liked the Bakugan show" if he wore his costume. I don't think it bugged him too much, because he has already slept in it a few times.

We are still playing flag-football, and it is going to be a little cool out there tonight. I may just take my new snuggie that Ladybug's future husband gave me for my birthday! Toasty!

Hope you all are staying warm and dry- I hate to mention the rain, but we have not had any for three days now. This might be a record.
