Lots and Lots of Treats!

We finally closed the door and turned off the porch lights. We took the kids to a few houses in the neighborhood then took the kids to the Halleluijah night that the local churches put on at the school it is so neat it is all free the kids got the neatest lunch boxes with a little prayer on them all the kids got those and then both got a bag full of goodies all the games pop and popcorn are free so they had a blast. There are now two huge bowls of candy and snacks on my table and lots of little junkie toys around! Came home and passed out candy. While we were gone I had left a bowl on the porch with a sign saying take some and when we came home it was almost empty so then we started handing out I ended up using chips from the kids lunches

Last year Braden was 4 and Brittney 6 and she was a cute little care bear and Braden was a skunk that was just adorable well no more cutesy costumes for my too. Brittney had purple and blue hair and makeup and an outfit that made her daddy think too much about what we will be dealing with in the years to come...haha..and Braden has been punching people all night!
Now its time to get my Punk Rocker and Power Ranger ready for bed.

I got up at 4am this morning I have had an awful cold and it is making sleeping hard. I keep waiting for it to go away but so far it is lingering. And of course this is just the start of cold season. Too add to not feeling well this time of year seems especially hectic, with Brittney turning 7 yesterday, Matt coming home from a business trip, holidays around the corner. Seems I am juggling more balls in the air than usual. I do have most of the birthday loot put away now. Last night was a 4H Fall party and I had several moms ask if there was anything left to buy Brittney for Christmas. My reply was not much after that birthday!
This week will be crazy as well because I have to take my son Braden who is 5 to Little Rock for a 8 hour EEG, for ongoing ruling out of health issues.
Well I should try to get some other stuff done since i am up at this wonderful hour.

Birthday Party Madness

Yesterday my little girl turned 7! I think I also got a minimum of 7 gray hairs just from running around like a crazy person. This year I decided I was going to do simple....yeah right...anyone who knows me knows this is an impossibility. I started about two months in advance we decided to do a magic theme and hire a magician and since she is getting older and wanting to invite more people we decided to go rent a room at the Park Community Center. Somehow even with all my organization a notebook, planning ahead still 3 hours before time I am dashing from here to yonder like a chicken with my head cut off. But at last I can look back and say it was a good party both kids and adults seemed to really enjoy the magician. My daughter was spoiled rotten and loved every minute of it. So now I can start on my son's 6th birthday...which is in May...and I have no doubt that even though I start early I will still be running around like a crazy person 3 hours prior! Tis the way birthday madness goes!

Handeling things while hubby's away

I always miss Matt when he is gone on business trips but this past week I have felt like a swimmer about to be dragged under. Before Matt left on Tuesday our son Braden started getting sick...when he has fever he has fibromal seizures so this started on Tuesday with Matt due to leave out Wednesday. Braden did have some seizures and missed all week of school. Brittney started getting sick on Saturday and me on Monday. Tommorow is Thursday and Matt will be back home. In the midst of all of us being sick inlaws decide to add some things for me to deal with. As well as receiving some news regarding Braden's health and some upcoming doctors visits. So I ask why does everything seem to fall apart when Matt is away. One good thing it always makes me see how much he really does, because I tell you I am hopping when he is away. Tommorow he will be home and I will be soooo glad.
