Well it's that time of year again! We got our pumpkins carved last night...........and dalton carved the BOO one all by his self! and nobody lost a finger or anything!

It will soon be time for all the ghosts and goblins and fairy princesses to come knocking on the door looking for treats.........and of course dalton will have to share his treats with mommy! LOL

Sister is bringing Jacob over tonight so we can go treating together. I love the small town atmosphere so that everyone knows everybody and you don't have to worry about the kids getting something bad in their candy.

I have a great next door neighbor who is in her 90's that always calls right after school on Halloween and wants Dalton to come over so she can treat him. She is not able anymore to do the traditional treating..........so she goes and stays at a son's house. My mom has a great aunt who lives behind me who is also getting up in years and not able to pass out treats to everyone........but let me tell you, if we don't bring dalton and jacob up to the door for her to see and treat them.......there are phone calls coming in!!

Happy Halloween Everyone!!

a good relaxing weekend! i got to scrap all day on saturday and then spent all evening playing cards with my aunt and my gram! no boys allowed!!! Sunday i stayed in my pjs all day and got some more scrapping done! i swore i saw a pig fly by my window...........i haven't got to scrap that much in two months! and can you believe the hubby took me grocery shopping! he even carried it in the house when we got home! it's funny how the little things make you feel like a queen for a day...............

things that make you go grrrrrrrrrrrrrr!

so i guess today quiet evening at home scrapping and relaxing translates to: dalton having 2 pages of homework, kicking, screaming, crying and pouting for 1 1/2 hours! then jerry.........being the lovable sweet puppy that he is coming in the door like a wild camanche after two minutes peeing in the rain and knocking over an entire shelf full of dishes and breaking all but two! and let's not forget the laundry in the wash and dryer. that's it!

if anyone needs me i'll be asleep under the dining room table!

Evading chores?

Ok, so apparently i have passed on my dislike for laundry to dalton...........hubby was washing, drying and folding clothes the other night, and just about the time he got to the part where dalton was supposed to put his away......he called for him, but he didn't answer.........he called for him again........silence. so i checked his room and only saw Jerry Dog taking advantage of the extra space in Dalton's bed. After searching for a few minutes.......hubby found dalton here.........under the table............and asleep. i guess you have to do whatever it takes to avoid the laundry! maybe i'll try that the next time i have to put laundry away!
