Halloween Sneak-a-Peek

Here's a little peek for Nana & Grandma of their granddaughter's in costume for this evening. Emma is Cinderella and so perfect for such a costume. Shelby chose to be a police officer and actually fits the role well.

Okay, you know when you are sick and you have been in bed for a couple of days and cannot stand to see your pillow for another minute? Well, that's exactly how I feel right now. I actually feel more exhausted and sore all over than yesterday but could not make myself watch TV in bed any longer. So I got on the computer and scrapbooked. The girls and I went to Puerto Rico to visit my brother and sister-in-law this summer. I finally have gotten around to scrapping those pictures, well half of them anyway. I finished my 3rd LO this afternoon while I shivered and sniffled. But it sure did break up the boring ole sick in the bed routine. My nose is sore, my eyes are tired, and my kids are lively & loud. That certainly does not make for a recipe of afternoon napping. But at least I had enough quiet time to get some scrapping done. Back to those dreaded covers and tissues. One day soon I am sure I will want so badly to get into bed for a quick nap when I have had one of those busy mom kinda days. But for today, I will enjoy my time and make myself rest so I can get well.

My Girls Playing Ball

I'm back . . .

It has been a while since I have posted and I am ready to get going again. There is so much to catch up on with just selling our house and moving into a rental for the time being. Shelby is at the same school since we rented in the same area. Emma is still in pre-school and learning so much. Shane is back on routine and I am trying to get there. I was able to exercise in our old house but do not have room for my equipment here so I have to reconfigure my routine a bit. My kitchen is organized and I am actually cooking Shelby's favorite tonight, chicken pot pie. Our furniture is in place and everything that we want to unpack (for hopefully a short time) has been put in its place. I just wanted to post something and since I have not found the time to download recent pics yet, I am posting a few oldies but goodies of the girls in our old backyard playing softball. Well, Shelby was hitting and Emma was prancing around the yard trying to retrieve the balls for Shelby. It was a silly afternoon. After just taking Shelby to Disney on ice, I hope to scrapbook some pages soon and post them. That was a treat! I am so looking forward to this weekend too. Shane scored us some free tickets to the FSU vs GA Tech game. It will be Shelby's first college football game. Most of you may know Shane is the most extreme of FSU fans so she will be seeing another side of her Daddy. I plan to take my camera so I will share that day eventually. Hope to post soon!

What do you get when you put 1 busted blood vessel on right hand, several bruises on thighs, 1 bump on the head, cuts, scrapes, soreness, aches and pains altogether? You get one extremely exhausted mover! I am sore from head to toe and have been making runs to the new house we are renting since a week ago Sunday. Shane and I along with our awesome friend, Carol, have spent our spare time taking boxes and misc things to get ready for the movers who come Friday. By Friday evening, hopefully our beds will be ready to have a restful sleep in while we put this move behind us. Of course, our next destination still remains a mystery. The bank did not take the offer on the house under foreclosure. So I guess they like it so much they want to hang onto that loan. It must not be the one for us. We plan to meet with another builder Thurs before closing to look at some lots. She said materials are as low as they were in the seventies so building from the ground up would not be bad. Sounds fun to me. Shane and I have built 2 houses and actually enjoyed the process of getting to choose everything. Gotta go and take a look at some floor plans! If you are in the area and would like to do some heavy lifting, give me a ring! BTW: I am so thrilled at the moment. My Mom flies in tomorrow for 7 days. Although, we are a bit nervous about her trip due to the fact that my Grandmother is in the hospital again with a bone infection in her new knee. My Mom does not want to leave her without knowing what they plan to do so pray for her recovery please. :)
