Well...the time has come. We have been hit by the infamous swine flu. Both kids came down with it Friday night. Today, both of them still have fevers and body aches, but are showing signs of feeling much better, as they are currently tearing up the house and playing with toys, which they have not done in a few days.
So here I sit...trying to stay away from them as much as possible and hoping that I do not come down with this as well. I can NOT afford to get sick on a holiday week when we have everyone coming over here!! Not to mention, I am currently the only worker in the house and NEED to work as much as possible! Unfortunately, as much as I'm trying to stay away from them and all, I still feel bad for them, so a lot of snuggling and hugging has been going on, which I'm sure is not the greatest for not catching anything. I have been trying to sneak the puppy in on them for snuggling in place of me, which has worked pretty well. :)
Wish us luck this next week as we try to purge this out of our house and get ready for the holiday season!!

Finally got my hair did!

The title pretty much says it all. I actually took the time to book a spa morning in which I got my hair cut, eyebrows done, and a quickie facial. Ahhhhh....
Now I just need to remember to keep it up and not wait another 10 months before going again!

Happy Halloween!!

Happy Halloween Y'all!
This year, we made good use of those $30+ costumes, unlike in years' past!
Trunk-or-treat earlier in the week, school parties, downtown walks, trick-or-treating Halloween night, and a trip to Pizza Hut afterwards to warm up and make good use of Haiden's Book-It coupon. Not to mention the fall trip to Crane's and pumpkin carving--never before have we celebrated a holiday like this before, and it was fun. We had a good time; hope you all did too!

Crane's Orchard

Fall Trip to Crane's Orchard
This month, we took the kids to Crane's orchard for some apple picking, corn maze navigating, and to enjoy the nice fall weather!
