Update to Now...

So Halloween went well. We got a bit of an early start. Victoria and I both dressed up as pirates and Mattie was Superman. We gave out a little bit of candy, then Steve took the kids up and down our street and up the next street. They got a good amount of candy. When they got back, we gave out some more candy for a bit longer, then we called it a night. We didn't get a whole lot of trick or treaters again. Last year was pretty slow too, but we anticipated and didn't buy a whole lot of treats. We wrapped it all up and the kids were showered and in bed by 9pm:)I picked up my mom on Thursday evening and we spent Friday shopping around. Elijah came over Friday; Steve picked him up after work and he spent the weekend with us. I hadn't seen him in quite a while, nor had the kids, so they were all really excited.

I also got my box of goodies from My friend Ang got me a $45 GC for my birthday and here's all the goodies it paid for:

I also baked up a couple of Duncan Hines dump cakes. Gosh, I LOVE this stuff!!! We went through an entire one that very evening. Yuuummmy:POK...I am just loving this little guy. Too bad it is seasonal. I found him at Walmart. He was part of the Halloween stuff. It's called Prettyfreekinscary. I got this bobble head, a stuffed one and lots of other cool stuff:
Saturday we got up early and took the kids to eat at Burger King for breakfast. I planned on taking them to the park afterwards, but there was some sort of Health Fair or something going on there and there was no parking and TONS of ppl so we came back home and they played games and stuff all day then I took them back to the park in the evening. We stopped for chocolate dipped cones on the way home and then I made them hot dogs for dinner. I started getting a bit of a headache and took a little nap after dinner.

I also got a chance to work on this LO Saturday during the day. It's a lift off of either or 2Peas...can't remember. I picked up the Flair Autumn paper pack at HL and used my 40% off coupon and got a really good deal:) Other products used: American Crafts felt ric rac, Scribbles, 7 Gypsies journaling card, Heidi Swapp bloom, MM paint, Sizzix cut chipboard alphas; Doodleblock and flower gems from the Target $ Spot.

Sunday was another early start especially with the whole time change. The kids were up REALLY early. I woke up with a bit of a sore throat, but it wasn't too bad. We went for breakfast then dropped my mom off back home. We headed to the air show at Randolph. It was sooo cool. The kids had a pretty good time even though there was lots of walking involved. It was a great day; not too hot and a nice breeze blowing.

As the afternoon went on, my throat started hurting a bit more and by the early afternoon, it was killing me. I could hardly swallow. We dropped off Elijah and headed home. By this point my body was aching horribly. The minute I walked in the door I took a shower and went to bed. I was in bed by 7pm!!! I anticipated waking up feeling ALOT worse this morning, but fortunately I don't feel too bad. My body is still VERY achy, but my throat is nowhere near as bad as yesterday. I've got a bit of a cough and my throat's a little scratchy. Hopefully I'll feel better tomorrow.

I've spent most of the day doing chores I neglected over the weekend and my weekly cleaning. I'm not quite done yet, but I'm taking it kind of easy since I'm not really feeling 100%. Well, gotta get back to work. I'm starting to feel icky again, so I might just lie down for a bit before I continue.
