Some pics from last week

I'm sorry to say I did not step up and do my usual job of photography over Thanksgiving! I just have had a lull with blogging and I will get back into it now!

Substitute teaching!

I was a sub today. Oh my goodness I do need a massage! Blork!

We have been eating so I haven't had time to post!
Soon, I will get some pictures off of my camera and there will be something to see.
Kelley and Lora were married last weekend. You can see pictures on Mimisusans blog.
Then we had school functions on Tuesday. It was Grandparents day.
Extended family is in town for the holiday and we have all been visiting and the kids have had much fun playing together.

A Dog for all Seasons

If you click on the games link I have in the sidebar there is a game called A dog for all seasons. It's the the fourth game across in the top row. I've gotten up to 2300, but it's a tricky little game. It seems really easy at first, but gets tricky. Give it a try! These are fun little games that even your kids can play.

Kids and Psalm 23

The kids learned Psalm 23 this past month. Each night we learned an additional line. They learned the traditional King James version, but picked this for our blog. I said I would post it once they learned it. I also like the traditional hymn.

ASO and Chorus

Last night Brendon and I went to the Symphony. We have half year season tickets, but we had trouble finding a sitter this week. In the end one of them came through and we headed out.
They preformed Ein Deutches Requiem after intermission. It was really awesome and the orchestra and chorus did an amazing job. This piece took them 70 minutes to perform. I can't wait to go to the next performance.

Isabelle as St. Lucia
Joseph as St. Luke
I made him a Dr. kit with black poster board, but you can't see it.
Since the kids attend a Catholic school they had All Saints day the day after Halloween.
They had to dress up as a "Saint" and tell about them.
I am Joseph's room mom so I had to organize a party for his class.
I was about zonked after that.
Well, anyway the kids thought it was fun.
You can do a lot with a pillowcase and poster board for costumes!

The kid had a great time trick or treating last night. Deally's came over to trick or treat too. The Mommies sat on the front porch and passed out candy, while the Dad's took the kids around the neighborhood! I have a candy hangover today!
