Weekend Thoughts- Picture Heavy!!!

1. This has been a GREAT weekend! One for the books! Actually this whole month has been pretty awesome. I'm totally hoping November is just as amazing.

2. Can you believe it's already almost November? Less than a 1/2 day of October left here in Kentucky. That's crazy to me.

3. I worked on updating my October Personal Goals and Bucketlist and setting my one's for November. I'll be posting those tomorrow.

4. Friday there was lots of fun stuff going on at Axle's School. There was a food drive, a haunted hallway and the Science fair. I must say the school activities this month have been in abundance!

5. We donated 35 bags of mashed potatoes for their food drive! I love giving what I can. It is so good for the soul.

6. Ax got 2nd place in the Science Fair. Oh my word I had one overly excited little boy. He got a ribbon and all. He was so proud.

7. I'm already pondering ideas for the Social Studies Fair that will be coming up soon!

8. Annalee decided even though Trick or Treat was over for us, she would still dress like a princess all day. She asked and so we did!

9. I was never so glad that Friday was payday. For real, we were skimping around here! Guess that is the life of living paycheck to paycheck.

10.  Oh I almost forgot, Axle also got another 100 percent on his Spelling Test Friday. My kids are cute and smart too. Yes I'm bragging!!!!

11. Friday night the Hubby and I had a Date Night. It was rather adventurous in my book and I was worried I wouldn't enjoy it. I was so wrong. We went camping and slept on our boat. We have a cabin under our boat so we crawled in it, lit up the propane heater and slept like babies. We had so much fun.

12. Today has been our recovery day. While we had a great time camping, we were worn out!

13. My kids were so glad to see me when I got home. Ax was so excited to show me his new haircut that mom took him to get. He's got spikes again!

14. My Lee Lee is getting sick I'm afraid. Her nose is running, she's coughing and you can just tell she all around feels bad :(

15. Anika and my Mom went to my cousin's house tonight for some Halloween Celebrating. While I really did want to go, I just had TOO MUCH stuff to do. Guess I can't do everything I want too. I need another one of me! They look like they are having fun though or at least their Facebook pictures do!

16. SJ and Axle tried out the kids new Go-Kart today. Lee didn't want to ride thankfully. I think it's where she's sick but the air wouldn't have been good for her anyway.

17. Lee was perfectly content hanging out with me. She's watched television, colored and even did some pretend cooking!

18. I had to do some real cooking today. I made White Chocolate Popcorn for our Church Festival tomorrow. So simple and so good!

19. Tomorrow is our Fall Festival after Church for the kids. I'm kind of excited about it. I'm such a dork but I love stuff like that.

20. I stopped by the Dollar Store today to get a few things and couldn't help myself but to buy this. I might do an actual Advent Calendar with the kids this year too but I loved this little Countdown Tree. I'm totally in the Christmas Spirit already!!!

21. Tomorrow is going to be a cleaning house day. We have our Ladies Brunch on Monday so I have to get this place in shape. I'm going to do some of my cooking tomorrow night. I can't wait!

22. Speaking of Ladies Brunch, look what I picked up today. No Brunch is complete with a Mimosa Bar, right?

23. This week is going to be another wild one. Monday is Ladies Brunch, Tuesday & Wednesday we will be in Cincinnati Ohio, Thursday Axle has his first basketball game and Friday we are going to the Peanut Premier Party at our Community Center!!!!

24. The kids are off school Monday and Tuesday except for Lee and she is off all next week! 

25. That's all the time I have. I'm going to put the dishes in the dishwasher, straighten up the bathroom and living room, lay out our church clothes, make a store list and do some journaling before bed. Good thing Time Goes back tonight and I gain an hour!!!

Until Tomorrow Friends,
Have a good one :)

Ten Things Thursday

Sharing a few happenings from today. It's been a busy but fun day!

1. Annalee had her school party today- It was lots of fun. Her daddy even got to go and the girl smiled from ear to ear when she saw him. They had pizza, chips and juice. I brought 2 dozen cupcakes and they were a hit. All the kids ate and then got Halloween Ears to take their picture in. Lee had a good time and of course I enjoyed watching her so much.

2. My To Do List was a Mile Long Today- I did manage to accomplish most everything on it though. I've started using a To Do List the past few days. I used to do it religiously and got out of the routine of it. It's amazing how much more productive I am when I actually use it.

3. The Hubby Informed me he is getting a Bonus- It should reflect on his next check and I'm so thankful. I'm hoping it's enough to cover most all of our Christmas shopping. What a blessing that would be!

4. Axle had his School Party today Too- His class is filled with some amazing parent's. They literally had everything under the son to eat and drink. There was cupcakes, cookies, chips, vampire juice, smores and so forth. If you can think of it, it was probably there! They were allowed to wear their costumes but he opted not too. I think he's about costumed out! He had a great time celebrating with his friends though. It was lots of fun!

5. Anika has a field trip tomorrow with her school. It's for her FCCLA Club she's in. She's going to the Ramada for a meeting. She is required to wear black and red so she picked out a black pencil skirt and I had a red blazer she's borrowing. She tried it on tonight and she looked so professional. My baby has grown up on me :(

6. Speaking of Anika growing up, she gave out candy at my Mom's house tonight. This is the first year ever she hasn't went Trick or Treating with us. I'm not sure my husband was okay with it. I think it kind of broke his heart. Her and her boyfriend had a good time treating though and gave candy out to over 70 kids! Cody even bought her a Halloween Present, new pajamas. He's a pretty good boy!

7. Tonight was Trick or Treat Night- Our community celebrated Trick or Treat tonight! The kids had a great time and were wore out when we got home. I'm glad the Hubby was able to take a few days off work so he could go with us tonight. I know the babies loved having him there.

8. Tomorrow is Date Night- Tomorrow the Hubby and I are going on Date Night and I seriously cannot wait. We are headed out for a night on the lake, just the two of us. I hope to sip on a drink or two, enjoy a bonfire and do some fishing. Hopefully it's pure bliss just like I have envisioned in my head!!!!

9. On top of Everything else today, we finished our Science Project- Yes, it has been a CRAZY day. I wasn't kidding you friends. We managed to get it all done though including our Science Fair Project. Axle is pleased with it and that is all that matters to this mom. It may not be winning material but my boy is proud! That is a win in itself.

10. I'm still on Target with my 365 Days of Photos too- Here's Days 22-28

Day 22- Me and Axle Before Historical Day at his School

Day 23- Tessa riding on the cart while we were decorating for the Benefit!

Day 24- A beautiful Fall Tree I saw on my way home

Day 25- My Little Lee while we were having lunch

Day 26- Sporting my Awesome Boots!!!!

Day 27- The sky over the school- it was so pretty I had to snap a pic

Day 28- Lee's plaque she made us at school- I LOVE IT!!!!

That does it for me folks! I won't be posting tomorrow because I'll be dating but never fear, I'll be back on Saturday with the good stuff

You all have a blessed weekend!!!
