I had to make a new calendar for the pantry door and as I was erasing September, it just astounded me that the month was over. That we are already into the swing of this school thing, and that we are even enjoying the cooler weather. September was packed with good stuff. We've been to Wheatland, a couple parties, and even a beer tent, I've found time to scrapbook and paint,celebrated 9 years of marriage, I've meet friends for "Chunky" Cheese(that's for Joan;)) playdates, a trip to the orchard, and have even made it to the farmers market. We got Grady in his big boy bed, had a photo shoot( I am so ready to do that again)and got a haircut.
All that and I am almost half way done Xmas shopping! Now that's a good month!
I have to admit that I am not so optimistic for October. Jason will be gone most of the month for hunting, and that makes for very long days. We are for sure Co-Parents, each pretty equal in responsibility for the kids and the house. I do not enjoy being a "single" mother when he's gone. Plus he helps me laugh instead of yell. And he wrestles with the kids. When he's not home they attack ME. And I am a wimp.
October is one of my favorite months. Ya know the typical colors of the trees and all that. And I LOVE Halloween. Not the scary stuff, but love I the the pics of the kids in costumes and Halloween decor and PUMPKINS! Its a good warm up for Christmas.
So for today, I have an eye appointment and get to pick out new glasses. Looking for something trendy, but not the Sarah Palin look. lol! Then I am having 9 dinner guest and need to cook a BIG meal and bake an apple cake. Not to mention the cleaning that still needs to be done. I have finally started the giant canvas for Grady's room. I am pretty happy with it so far, I hope to be able to post a pic of it soon. Its the solar system! Got some other fun projects for the upcoming weeks, so looking forward to that.
For now I gotta go vacuum:)
