We had a great time baking and decorating Halloween cookies Saturday night. There were some real masterpieces made that night! :)

I"m off to Toronto tomorrow. I'm really sad that I'm going to miss trick or treating. We did take dd4 trick or treating at the zoo Sunday night. That was fun so I didn't totally miss out.

Happy Halloween!!

Here is my newest fashion accessory. It goes with everything so well!!! Man, what a mess. I had to wear a high heeled shoe on the left foot to be almost even with the boot. It was a fun day at work. LOL

Mollie, as you can see, LOVES her new bed. She's quite spoiled and loves it!! While dd9 was at the pumpkin patch with the church group today I took dd4 to Michael's to decorate a pumpkin. They had something where you could buy the pumpkin for 1/2 price and use their stuff to decorate it there. The coolest thing about that is using glitter and stuff with no mess to clean up! YAY! Anyway, she did most of the decorating by herself. I poked the "hair" into the top but that's about it. She's very proud of it. I"m sure you can't tell from the picture just how sparkly it is. It's VERY glittery....her favorite thing!! She has named the pumpkin Sheridan (no clue). Anyway, it was a good afternoon of Mom and daughter time with, surprisingly, no fits or attitudes. WOW! She's such a fun kid when we are by ourselves.

Well, maybe my prayers have worked some this week. I'd like to think God was looking out for us. I had a plumber to the house in sherman and he fixed everything in the bathroom for $117.00. I was soooo happy about that. The last quote I got was going to be about $400-500. I was really stressing about that. Something like that always comes up when you are trying to pay off bills and save money. So, anyway, it was nice to have one good thing happen this week. Maybe my luck is going to turn around. I listened to a new podcast today called "scream free parenting". I need to listen everyday to that. Been having a bit of a hard time with that. Dd4 is pushing every button she knows how. She must sense my stress and be feeding off of that. Not good.

Anyway, I'm off to bed soon I hope.

Not much new here...just work and school pretty much. I do actually have a menu planned out for about 10 meals so that is nice. I'm sure that will help make the evenings a little more pleasant. The kids and I have been going to church every week for about a month now. We are all really enjoying it. I am glad that the kids like it so much. We haven't had one Sunday morning complaint about getting up and ready to go. SO NICE! That is one positive thing that I feel really good about these days! YAY ME!!! I know it's probably not that big of a deal to people who have always gone to church. But we haven't been more than a couple of Sundays here and there since dd9 was a tiny baby. Yeah it's been a while. I'm proud of us for doing it.
