Spooky Spiders!!

Jaela took her pretty pink spider named Jewel to school today for the Spider Parade... There is also a picture of one of the 3 little boys that are chasing Jaela. His name is Grant. :o) He is in the middle, and Brayden is right behind him. Oh man. 1st grade and already "boys boys boys!!"...not looking forward to the teen years!

It's Trick or Treat time!!

We have been looking forward to this week for a while! Jaela has a spider project and spider parade on Friday. She had to create her own type of spider and write a speech to give to her class. The 1st graders will put on a parade through the fun!! We will Trick or Treat and hand out candy on Saturday. This year we will have a giraffe, pirate girl, ninja turtle, and another that has yet to decide. I can't wait to take pictures. We will also decorate the house/yard tonight. I will post a picture of that later.
I have been thinking a lot lately about how blessed I am. We have such great family and friends! Please keep our neighbors in your prayers. Their 16 year old daughter was in a horrible car accident involving a drunk driver. She was in the hospital for a week and has several broken bones. (eye socket, teeth, skull, wrist, hip, ribs....) She is very lucky because the other girl in the back seat is paralyzed from the waist down and still fighting for her life. Another thing that reminds me to be thankful is a man at our church. He helped me with Rock-n-Roast. He came to me while I was planning and said he wanted to help. He also said that he could not do too much due to having colon cancer in the 3rd stage. He was given 6 months to live, and that was a year ago!! He helped so much with the cooking team and helped set up/clean up. We all need to know how blessed we are.
I will have pictures to post later tonight! Have a great day!!!

Fun with icing on top!

The kids and I have had a fun day! I found a chocolate haunted house kit... so let the fun begin!! We had a ton of fun putting it together and decorating it, but the best was EATING IT!! Oops, I posted one of the pics twice and can't figure out how to delete it... Oh well. Enjoy!!

Fall is Here!

Funny that fall is here, and it is still in the upper 90's in Houston...

Our family has had a lot of fun over the past few days! I was worn out from my Canton trip, but that doesn't slow this family down!! We had a picnic at the park the other day. The park by our house is amazing! I have included pictures from that. We have a big event on Sunday at our church called Rock-N-Roast. I had an idea in my head for an outreach to the apartment complexes around our neighborhood. Our preacher and I met and talked... now I am running with it!! We will have worship in our amphitheater, hot dogs galore, bounce house/slide, batting cages and a bunch of give aways! We have a 42' flat screen, desk top computer, free house cleaning, mary kay spa pack, and a lot of gift cards- all to give away! I am so thankful for all of the help with this!! Not only do we have all of that, but we have Jeremiah's parents coming in on Thursday, Brian, Tonya, Addie, and Ellie all coming in on Friday, tons of work to do for the rock-n-roast on Saturday, and ALL day Sunday!! Is it Monday yet?? Busy Busy! I have also started taking orders for girl's head band flowers, and have 3 diaper cakes to do... I need to clone myself. lol! Somehow, I need to grocery shop and clean my house at some point, and don't forget my kids and hubby. Whew! I am tired from just reading all of my "to do" list! Guess I better get busy. Hope everyone has a great rest of the week and weekend!
