Some Spooky Craftin'

 Z and I enjoyed a little spooky crafting for Halloween this week!

We even carved a mini pumpkin and put some little vampire teeth in it.  And guess what?!  He won first prize in his age group at school!!  He was so excited!

Even old ladies get hair beads...

Rockin' the hair beads tonight!  Zane gave me two of his tickets at the kiddle carnival tonight to get hairbeads for my hair!  I was too excited;)  I've never had then and you know all the cool kids were doing it!  So I gave it a go.  And what a bargin at only $1.00!  So there.  Even old ladies like me can get hair beads...at least at Jellystone they can.  And that's good enough for me!

Duelin' Yogis!

Yep we are Trick or Treating Yogi Bear style tonight!
Liam got to wear the very same suit Zane wore just last year!  what a big boy he is!  Zane wore his Yogi shirt and hat he wore for his birthday party last year and there you have it...dueling Yogis!  They were a hit at Jellystone as we did Trick or Treating around the campground for the Pumpkin Patch weekend;)

Pumpkin Patchin'

This was how I started my day today...in a pumpkin patch in Hammond with an amazing little boy that I'm blessed to call my own. I was brought to tears on more than one occasion as I watched him this year experience this very same field trip that was such a breaking point for him last year. What a difference a year and an awesome teacher can make in the life of a special little boy. God brought me to this day...and he brought me through it. Thank you.

Super Hero?

Today was super hero day at school today...
So since we have a large selection of random costumes to choose from in Z's closet we just pulled an old one from his room and went with it.  One of his old favs was black spiderman...also know as Venom.  Now for you who are like me and don't speak comic book...Venom is a bad guy.  Z was obssessed with him.  Like crazy obssessed with him.  So we got him the suit and all last year.  We haven't really watched or discussed any Spiderman stuff lately so when the super hero thing came up I didn't even think about it I just pulled the suit out and went with it.  So he gets home and tells me..."Mommy, I dont' want to be black spiderman anymore...I want to be red and blue spiderman now.  I want to be the good spiderman."  Well yeah!  Sweet!  This kid is changing.  I'm one happy momma.  Happy indeed.

Zoo Date!

Today was a rare day...
Liam and I had a rare zoo date!  We loaded up and met some other mommies from the church with their kiddos and had a zoo date!  It was such a great break.  We both enjoyed the day.  Liam just sat back in his stroller and enjoyed the animals and the train ride and I enjoyed the company and conversation;)  We must do it again soon!
