Snow in October?

Well, it seems that we may be getting snow tonight into tomorrow, I think its too early for this!! This is not my favorite weather, I'm already freezing and dealing with several colds! :( I'm sick and so are my kids......seems like this is going to be a long & cold winter....already getting chills just by thinking about it!  So depressing!

Anyhoot, on to other things! If it doesn't snow, we have more baseball games this weekend, and we are approaching our weekend trip to Cal Ripken.  I think it'll be a nice weekend trip for all of us, and the boys always have a blast.  This will be a great end to the baseball season :)

As much as I enjoy watching my son play baseball, and going out every weekend, I really need a break.  It's definitely that time of year where I just want to stay home on the weekends and catch up with everything else in my life.  Not to mention that my house needs major cleaning!  I'll need about 2 weekends at home to fully clean and throw o…

Look what I found :D

I was going through my hard drive and I found this little video!! I made this a few years ago, I was bored and playing around with windows movie maker....I really loved the way it came out!

Now I should find time to make a few more!!

:( Change of plans :'(

:'(Well, it is official.....we have postponed our Disney vacation.  I've been thinking & calculating & thinking but there is no way that we can make it work!  My bright idea of taking a year off from work, instead of looking for something new right away, really hurt us, and now our vacation just can't happen.  No one to blame but what's new?

Now that I'm done being depressed about not spending a week in Disney, on to other things going on in our crazy lives!

I have 1 week to go before my kids' recital and I still have a few things to get them! Luckily, I finally found a gold dress for my daughter, plus her black shoes(this was the easiest part), now I need to buy her 2 pairs of stockings but this too should be fairly easy.  How can a ballet supply store not have stockings, right? LOL, with my luck, I'll show up & she'll be out of stock in the size I need! 
My son needs to try on his clothing for the show & I'm crossing my f…

October Tradition continues....

I've been so busy between work and my kids' schedules that I have not had much time for anything else, especially writing.  I need quiet time to do this, and it is very hard to come by! We've also been so busy that we had to squeeze in our Fall tradition before a baseball game one Sunday, although the game was eventually cancelled.  The first weekend of every October is our pumpkin picking time....we've been doing this since my son, who is 13 now, was 1.  Our typical spot is Ideal Farms, and here are some pictures of how our day went:

One of my daughters favorite things to do here is to feed the goats!  We can never leave without feeding the goats....oh and buying candy apples & apple pies :)

Hope everyone else enjoyed their Fall activities....I may try to add apple picking to our pumpkin picking next year!
