It's almost Halloween!

Okay, I admit it. I need to work on my blogging consistency. Or, at least take the time to do it so there aren't giant missing holes in the story I'm trying to tell. We have just a little bit of a project going on... In the past TWO months, my husband has turned this:

Into this:

The kids and I are so proud of him. It's very stressful and awesome to be the general contractor for your own home. What a ride! I can't wait to get there and start our journey. I plan to fill in more of the story soon.

We went to Tyler's Fall Party today. It was adorable. He won the game "Pin the Nose on the Pumpkin." (He was number 8. His face lit up so bright when he realize he won... I could have cried right then and there.)

The kids also decorated cookies, Tyler stained his mouth black with a heaping pile of black sprinkles, they made paper pumpkin crafts, and wore matching Halloween shirts because their mama is cool like that. (Bless their hearts.)

Hurricane Sandy is underway on the East Coast. We saw news coverage on the storm, and Regan had a lot of questions about what was happening. I explained to her, and she was very concerned about the children in the areas hit hardest. We all are. Big prayers for safety tonight.

Speaking of tonight, the kids and I went to sister's first school skating party. We had a blast. I had one of those "oh crap I don't have a baby anymore moments" when I had to get Tyler size 12 skates! That's what size Regan wears! I have these moments more and more and more these days.


The kids absolutely love rollerskating. I loved watching them be so carefree and young out there. Tomorrow is Halloween. Regan is going as a witch, and Tyler HAD a frog costume, but yesterday explained, "I want to be something meaner," so is now dressing as the Bumblebee Transformer.

Here's my guy practicing being mean at lunch yesterday. Fierce, I tell you.
There's so much to look forward to, so much to be thankful for....


Guts and all.
