I give you our Halloween pumpkins! Skeleton and Scooby Doo. Can you guess who picked what?
I have to get moving. I have to be at school for the fourth and first grade Halloween parties this afternoon. Zachary has been fever free for over 24 hours and went to school today. He is so relieved he can go trick or treating tonight.
Before I go, I wanted to give a special shout out to Eddie's sister Marybeth and her husband Kit. They both have stopped smoking! It has been six weeks! Congrats to you both!

Zachary is sick and has missed two days of school. Other then a fever, he has no other symptoms. I hope he is better for Halloween and is able to go trick or treating. Just in case, Connor said he would carry his candy bag and trick or treat for him.
It is a beautiful fall day in Ohio. The Halloween forecast looks great too. Highs in the upper 60's. I can't wait to take pics of all the festivities and share them with everyone!

Ok, let me fill you in on what's been going on this past week. Zachary was inducted to the student government. He is the fourth grade representative. The school has a nice ceremony in the church and a little reception afterwards. We are so proud of him. This is his second year he has been elected by his classmates and although he won't admit it, I know he really enjoys it!
Connor was quite the social butterfly last weekend. He had birthday parties Friday and Saturday for two of his classmates. Chuck E Cheese and bowling! How can you beat that!
Saturday night was the Youth Football Steak Fry that I helped plan. We had 300 people attend! We did have some hiccups but they were minor. All in all, for our first steak fry it went well.
Just wanted to show a pic of Zachary's cloud science project we both worked on. These projects turn on to be just as much work for the parents as they are for the kids. We both had fun and learned alot about clouds in the process. FYI, dryer lint makes for a great stratus cloud!
I think that about covers it. I am off to clean the house and do laundry.

Finally, after much deliberation he picked out a beauty.
Grobe Farm is also an apple orchard. They had a big variety of apples already picked which was just fine by me. They also make their own apple cider. I have to say last night Eddie and I sampled some and it was delicious! The apples tasted so much better too! I may have to stop by this farm a few more times before the end of the season!
We are gearing up to watch game 3 of the ALCS tonight. The game is in Cleveland and the town is buzzing with excitement! GO TRIBE!
Also, wanted to say Happy Anniversary to our special friends Nicole and Mike. They celebrated 12 years together on Friday! I know it is a little late but wanted to say congrats! Love you guys!

Speaking of Zachary, his football team won 41-0 yesterday. He had 1 fumble recovery, 1 sack, and tons of tackles. He even got the ball to run in the extra point. He didn't make it but it was a huge deal for him since he really doesn't play offense that much.
We are going to try to go to the pumpkin patch today. Finally have some decent fall weather. Zachary has a birthday party at 2 o'clock for a friend on his team.
I am sensing a theme in our lives. Sports and birthday parties! If you have been keeping up with my blog it seems that is all we do!

days. I so love this store! Even better, all of my purchases were 20% off! It has been months since I bought anything so I went a little crazy. They had lots of new stuff from CHA summer.
I got several layouts done. I will share some in a little bit. It has been raining and I can't take pictures of them just yet.
Even more fun was that a friend Nicole and I made at CKU-Detroit, Theresa was able to join us Friday night. She lives in Michigan. It was so good to see her and catch up. On Saturday, Staci a friend from Two Peas came to shop and stopped in to say hello. It is so fun actually meeting people in person that you have come to know online. If you guys are reading this, we all need to get together and crop!
Would you believe I took my camera but didn't take one picture! Sorry, I know a post is boring without pics.
I am thinking I might dig out my Halloween decorations this week. Have you started decorating for fall? I'd love to hear some great ideas!
