Family Planning

I went to the grocery store today with Isabelle and Joseph. Joseph is in 1st grade and just loves to read! He especially loves to read signs as we go down the road. (By the way, I am so glad those signs on 85 N on the way to Hartwell are gone!) Today he was reading all the signs in the grocery store, and as we passed the pharmacy he read "pain relievers, hair products and family planning". He liked the way the words family planning sounded so he started repeating it and then singing it over and over! I just let him keep saying it because I figured if I said something that he would then want to know what it was. I'm not sure he quite graps the concept of conception yet, so I felt it was better to carry on as we were. We received a couple of humorous looks from other people!

On Friday the kids could dress up as a favorite book character. Isabelle dressed as Laura Ingalls and Joseph went as Flat Stanley! I can tell you that after school I was wiping down kitchen counters and there was orange hairspray everywhere! I couldn't see it, but it definetly came up on the cloth. Let's don't talk about what happened when I blew my nose!!!

Those are my old boots! It's a little secret, but I used to go line dancing
WAY WAY back when! Like before I ever went traveling and met Brendon!
Cotton eyed Joe anyone!!!??

Oh yeah, Joseph!

Our Joseph lost his first tooth. He woke up in the middle of the night, and it was very loose and fell out. He then woke up Isabelle and she told him to put it under his pillow (no one bothered to wake up the parents). However, the tooth fairy had already come so we put it back under the pillow the next night!

Isabelle and Joseph woke up, jumped out of bed and ran downstairs Friday morning. This NEVER happens, but they were so excited about trick or treating this year! Isabelle was a cheeta and Joseph was a skeleton ninja. They also wanted Mom and Dad to carve out interesting pumpkins this year. It took quite some time and I like my regular old jack o lantern better. Next year! Olivia and Edison came over and went trick or treating with us and got lots of goodies! Everyone had a good time! Ok, so the parents were all a little exhausted this year, but we made it!
