I am Thankful for....... by Lauren and Cole

The other day when the kids were running and playing like crazy I decided they ( ok maybe I ) needed a break and a little quiet time.  So I asked them to come sit at the table and we had a little coloring time.  While they were doing that, we talked about Thanksgiving and things they were doing at school. So I asked the kids to write down 4 things that they were thankful for.....

I am Thankful for...
        1. Mommy            
 2. Family and Dogs
 3. Food and Plants 
       4. That we have a house

I am Thankful for...
1. Having Candy
2. Dogs and Family
3. Miss Kara and my Pre-School
4. My Toys and My house

School Lunch

For the last week Lauren has been asking me to join her for lunch today. Today they were serving a Thanksgiving lunch:  Turkey, potatoes and gravy, green beans, rolls and pumpkin pie!! Since she mentioned it everyday and asked how many day we had left until this day. I knew there was no way I was getting out of this.

So today at noon I walked with Lauren to the lunchroom paid my $2.50 for an adult tray, which meant I got two rolls!! I was actually surprised it wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be!!! Although, there was no pumpkin pie, instead we had carrot cake!!

Not only did I get to have lunch with Lauren.....I also had lunch with:

JASON: who is a chatty cathy. I couldn't even begin to tell you all the things this kid talked to me about!! Apparently he doesn't like carrot cake.....He politely asked me if he could throw up and before I realized what he said....he spitted (thank goodness) all his carrot cake back onto his tray!!! UGH!!

ALLEE: she taught me how to spell her name, she is the oldest of three kids and they just had a trip to Florida because her dad had a lot of meetings.

DAMIAN: who got an staph infection in his finger from the basketball. he had a "happy tray" which means he ate all his food.

BAILEY: who asked if I could just sit by her since I get to see Lauren at home! :)

After all was said and done. I was glad Lauren kept bugging me about having lunch with her today.  It was a good day!!

A Late Halloween!!

How can it be that I didn't blog one single time in October.  I started this with hopes to one day make a book out of it and have a wonderful keepsake.  Unfortunately, I haven't been doing very good keep this up and I think it has been even worse since I facebook and update pictures on there.  So I'm going to TRY to do better, which apparently with this post I already am!!

This Halloween I had an Evil Clown and Hulk!!

Lauren's last dance recital the big girls did and dance to Pink's Funhouse which had evil clowns. She loved the dance and knew without any doubt that is what she wanted!!  Cole started out wanting to be Ironman, but with one trip to the story to get that costume, turned into him wanting to be Hulk and nothing else!!

Hope everyone had a fun and safe Halloween!!
