Halloween and other Stuff

I admit, I soo use Facebook as a crutch. I post all photos of the kids there as a way to keep people informed, but realize now not everyone uses Facebook like some of us do. So I am re-establishing the blog. Now, admittedly, I do great with this darn blog thing from November to around early February, then something happens. So I am just going to go with the flow.

We have started our second year in Texas, still not so committed to Texas but I will say, as predicted, after a year it has grown on us a little more. I love my job, and more importantly the people I work with, and that makes all the difference in the world. So I am so grateful that God lead me to this position, and to top it off, for the first time in a long time Chris is actually in a position that has tremendous income and professional growth. He is in the middle of NAPA accelerated management program and should finish up in a few months.

Now onto Halloween, last year I was hear alone with the kids so I took them to our Church's Trunk or Treat Celebration, which was a lot of fun. But this year they really wanted to trick or treat in the neighborhood. Which we did, and oh my goodness. I have not seen that many kids on the street since my days as a pre teen on the Navy base, and boy did they bring home a haul. They had a lot of fun. I stayed back to hand out candy and I ran out in 45 minutes flat, lessons learned for next year. As you can see Phoenix choose to be a snowy owl (OK I know the orange beak is confusing but we improvised) and Griffin was a vampire

SO now the CRAZY season starts, hopefully this year, with all of us together it will seem more like Christmas, Chris has already taken down the decorations so we can start seems to come earlier and earlier every year, but maybe we are in a rush since we were not together until December last year. Who knows.

Anyway, onto our Sunday activities. Have a blessed day everyone. Leave me a comment and let me know you were here.
