Now shopping with DJ was a First on BLACK FRIDAY. It wasn't too bad. But I couldn't get anything for him, however, he did make a great pack horse. I highly recommend bring a husband if haven't before. I DON'T, however, recommend, going shopping when both people have been sick!!

Wed. was backwards day and also a school awards assembly. It was a busy day for the boys. Seth got perfect attendance and the citizenship award. (Only one boy and one girl from each class can get that award). Seths teacher gave it to him, not because hes the smartest and the best behaved-cuz we all know Seth and hes, well Seth, she gave him the award because she said he has a BIG heart and loves to help everyone, a little too much sometimes.:) Josh did pretty good himself. He made Principles list (Yeah, Josh), he also got perfect attendance and well, he also got the citizenship award in his class. It was a pretty cool day.
OK so THURSDAY was the funnest day. It was CRAZY day at school and we went all out for the boys. We colored their hair with our school colors, SILVER and GREEN. (was a little worried it wouldn't come out of blond hair, but it did!) Seth thought he was so cool getting to have WILD hair at school.
THEN, Friday... Friday was wear a costume to school day, but it couldn't be anything scary. So we had to come up with something for Josh so he wore his dads military uniform. And Seth went as his second favorite...Indian Jones.
That night of course was HALLOWEEN. It was kind of a quite night for us. We got the boys dressed in their costumes.
Cayla had to work and then had to dance at a football game for half time (kind of sad we didn't get to see it but we weren't sure she would get off work in time). We didn't go any where this year, no biggie. We had fun with just mom, dad and the boys. Our neighborhood was kind of quite but the kids made out like bandits. Josh was a skeleton pirate and Seth , Indian Jones. Of course the boys are boys. Josh had a sword and Seth a machete and a whip, so they had to fight each other. I really didn't know who to root for, I LOVE Indian Jones and well, Josh was pretty scary, I was so confused, which as everyone knows doesn't take too much. In the end it was a draw.
We had fun. The kids can't wait to wear their costumes again next year. (Cuz moms cheap and gets or makes costumes that will last 2 or 3 years and then they get handed down to Seth, he doesn't like that idea too much, but oh well, "LIFE ISN'T FAIR!" A saying we teach our kids over and over and over again.)

You talk about thinking BIG!!! We found out that one of the schools in our district wasn't going to have a carnival this year, so they asked if they could come to ours, no biggy. We'll then it just grew and grew from there. Next thing we knew we had 2 other schools from the district we invited to come. Then the day before we found out that the other school in the district canceled theres and was planning on coming to ours. WOW, I think we got in over our head here. But you talk about bring a community together.
Of course with everything, you'll have a few snags here and there, but over all everyone seemed to have a good time. We had kids out there dancing with the DJ (not just little kids, but older kids, crazy) and everyone seemed to enjoy the rides. ME, I just wanted to crash and burn. We've learned a few things to do and not to do for next year, so next year will be even better. Its all about getting community involvement and that was our aim! If you came, thanks for coming, hope you had fun...sorry the food lines were so long (something to work on next year). If you helped in ANY way, we couldn't have done this without you, your helping to make our community a better one and our schools. Thanks.

Yesterday the boys are playing, pretty good together, not really fighting or anything. But they were being really silly (which they really know how to do at times). They thought it would be funny to try and sneak into the family room without DJ and I seeing them. Of course they were so loud we could hear them coming from a mile away, but they were having fun. They would go up stairs and act like they were playing and then sneak down stairs.
After awhile they realized we could see them coming down the stairs, so one of them (JOSH) got it in his head "Lets slided down the stairs, with blankets on our head. They will never see us then." So they did this a few times and decided that it was a lot of fun, so they put pillows an the bottom of the stairs, went and got the lid to the laundry hamper and covered everything with blankets and started sliding down the stairs.
NOW mind you by this time I'm in the kitchen cleaning up not really paying much attention to my two darling little turnips. And DJ's working on his Sunday school lesson. I come out of the kitchen and go into the laundry room and DOWN comes Josh, just laughing away, HEAD FIRST, on his stomach, straight into a tile with pillows. He says you have to watch this mom, goes back to the top and down he slides. Then Seth does it. Of course I know they are having fun, but this is MY CHILDREN WE ARE TALKING ABOUT. They are a bit, how do you say, klutzy. We keep the doctors and the emergency room on speed dial for them. SO needless to say, mom spoiled all the fun and said you guys can't do that any more. One wrong slip and its face first into the tile, or its a broken bone, (aint doing that one again!!!) I go back into the kitchen. Then we hear Josh telling Seth, "you better not do it, mom said don't, we might get hurt". But of course hes laughing away while hes telling Seth this, so of course Seths not going to believe him. Seths response... ITS JUST SO MUCH FUN, SO ITS OK!
You gotta love boys!!!

Cayla and I spent some of her time making peach-strawberry Jam and Canning Peaches. I've been working on these for 2 weeks off and on so I had her and Josh help me finish them up. It was kind of funny watching Cayla, she really is a blond, but in a good way.
