Fragments! WOOT WOOT

Mommy's Idea


I'm so happy I have a chance to do some Fraggin' today! I've missed Mrs 4444's and all of the other Fraggers.




It's been busy around our house. It's weird how I really don't feel any less busy and crazy, even though I'm not working now! I've just filled those hours with other things. There are only a few soccer & volleyball games left this season though! Andrew had his best game on Saturday, they tied 2-2, and Elayna's team won a set for the first time on Tuesday night. They were SO excited!



I LOVE Halloween. It's my favorite holiday. My house is decorated and we've been to festivals and all that stuff.
BUT, every other year the kids go to their dad's house for Halloween, and it is just nowhere near as fun. I am already feeling bummed that they'll be gone all weekend. And we live out in the country and probably will get very few trick-or-treaters, if any. Sure, we could go to some Halloween events, but it's a little weird for two adults to be walking around without kids! So we'll probably stay home, watch scary movies, and eat up all the candy.



We carved our pumpkins this week. We ("we" meaning "me", since John was at work and I do not give knives to my children) carved a cross into one (Shelbie's suggestion) and a cat face into the other one (my idea). I did these free-hand, so please don't laugh too hard. The cross is totally crooked. We had fun though! (I had fun playing on Picnik, too.)













To all of you who are still coming by and reading, even though I so rarely get to read your blog....



Seriously, you are awesome and I appreciate it SO much!!





Well my friends, I am off! Be sure to visit Half Past Kissin Time for more Friday Fragments. I hope you have a wonderful weekend and a

Happy Halloween!

Hi! I'm still popping in every now and then to see what you're up to. And I don't keep a tally of who visits and who comments at my blog. I so rarely have anything interesting to post anyway!
