Happy Thursday!

My Hannah is OBSESSED with my Bath and Body small lotion bottles. I have some in a small basket on my basket tree, as well as some small candle tarts that she loves too. Well, she goes and get the bottles and takes them to Mike or me. She has NO problem getting her point across that she wants him to give her some lotion on her hands.

We tried to get a picture of the two kids in our rocker but Hannah had other plans. She thinks it's funny too! What a silly girl! Hunter has no problem modeling for us. He looks so grown up here after his bath.
I got some goodies in the mail from a RAK (Random Act of Kindness) last week. I LOVE Eyelets, and there are some really neat ones in this stash! I couldn't wait to organize them in my tackle box, and of course share a snowman eyelet with Hunter. I put it on a piece of card stock for him and he loves it. Maybe he'll be my future scrapbooker ;) I just love happy Mail days! Thanks so much, Laci!
The weekend is in sight and I hope it's COOL Fall temperatures. My babies will be out for Halloween and I'm hoping it's not too warm.
We had a conference with Hunter's teacher on Wednesday and got a GREAT report. He's not only excelling on almost everything but he blew his teacher away with his reading!! He's probably reading somewhere on a Second Grade Level. We were SO proud. We need to work on his handwriting a bit but that was her only suggestion for us. She said it is obvious that we are reading a lot at home. We are SO proud of our Love Bug!!

Early Morning....

Another Early morning....I have an 8:15 meeting today at work. I was up early yesterday too for a 8:05 ENT appointment. It went OK. I do have a blockage on the right side of my Sinus so I really need another Sinus Surgery. I have several Polyps and some scar tissue that has developed from my previous surgery and previous infections. He's just going to remove the Polyps and clean the Sinus out a bit. He thinks it will be a big help. I'm having Surgery November 13Th, which is on a Friday and he said I may be able to be back at work on Monday. He expects I'll have some Sinus pain for about a week. I'm glad that, FINALLY, I'll have some relief. I'm looking forward to getting it OVER with so I can move on. After all, my Disney Cruise is coming up quickly. We're making some final plans and I am getting so excited! I've been doing a lot of Christmas shopping too. I hope to be completely done before I go on my trip. I want everything done. Christmas cards, Christmas tags, presents wrapped and under the tree.

Hunter was better but now his fever is back. He's supposed to go to the Pumpkin Patch today but he's not able to go. He got sick on the way home yesterday in Mike's car. Not sure if he was car sick or not since that was the only time. But his fever returned and he looks weak. I STILL don't think it was the Swine Flu, though. He crawled in bed with me this morning when his dad left so I didn't get much sleep after that. It's OK. He's SO worth it. It's a messy morning so even if he went on his field trip, he would be a mess. It's been pouring rain all morning so I can imagine what the Pumpkin Patch looks like. Hope everyone has a great day =)

Looks like my plans for the weekend have changed! Hunter has the SWINE FLU! He was fine this morning but got a call from the Clinic he had a 102 Fever. Mike is home with him today. He took him to the Pediatrician and he tested positive for it. He was supposed to get his Swine Flu shot today! fast things change! So, we're staying in this weekend and resting. Poor Guy! Hunter assured me that he wasn't sick....He said he's just cold because he has a fever=) He NEVER complains...he's always pleasant. Bless his heart :( I think it's a good weekend to watch movies and maybe we can make some crafts together. He loves to be creative.
Well, here's some pictures of my kids to share....
Hannah has decided she is NOT too big for her swing..she LOVES it! She LOVES that thumb!
Just want to share some pics of my babies last Friday. We went to The Living Museum for a Halloween Party. The kids had a BLAST! Hunter is Batman and Hannah is a Bunny Rabbit! But she was so tired when we got home!
Out Cold!
She loved her freedom..
Hunter as Batman

Have a great weekend and God Bless!

Hunter wore his Woody Cowboy Hat to Toy Story 3D and Hannah is wearing her new headband that Grandma made her. She made a bunch of them in all different colors. These kids LOVE to model for Mom and her camera..

Behavior Stop Lights

Instead of using Hunter's behavior charts, I decide to use something MUCH more fun. Stoplights, like they use at School. They are glued to the Popsicle sticks and then stick on each color with Velcro. He loves them and it was HIS idea to make one for his sister too. He's worked really hard at home and school to stay on green.

I have a TON of pictures to post but I'll have to start a little at a time. I've been so busy with the kids and playing with my new Gypsy. I LOVE it. It's amazing how much I'm using it.
I'm still coughing and much worse now. I have an apmt with the ENT Doctor on Wednesday at 8:15. I'm sure he'll schedule me for another CT Scan since I'm not getting any better. I could use some prayers...I'm hoping for no surgery but whatever it takes to get better, I'm game
Have a great Tuesday =)

October -Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Have you ever know anyone touched by Cancer? I'm sure we all have. I was reminded today to stop and remember how SHORT life really is. We need to think about all our loved ones, friends and people around us who have been affected by Cancer. I was very touched by Amy's Blog as she shares some beautiful memories of her mother who she lost several years ago to Cancer. Please take a moment to read it today. What a beautiful sentiment

Busy Couple Days...

I haven't COMPLETELY forgotten about my blog. I've just been busy. Hunter is playing Soccer now, we're trying to get rid of LOTS of stuff in this house/our attic and of COURSE, I've been busy playing with my new Cricut Gypsy. I love it! It's definitely a hobby that I LOVE. I've made Hunter a new stoplight for his bulletin board with a Prince Paper Doll and I also made Hannah one. Hers has a Princess Paper Doll. He loves it. Right now, I'm trying to design some Vinyl art for Autumn for my Living Room. I'll post pictures soon. My laptop is almost gone so I've been using our Desktop computer (Mike's computer) alot lately. it's OK though...hopefully getting a new laptop next year with our tax return. Just wanted to say hello and say, hope you have a wonderful week =)
Hopefully, next time I'm here, I'll have pictures of some things I've created with my new Gypsy!! God Bless!
