Happy Halloween!

Just wanted to wish everyone a very Happy Halloween! We visited the fire station this evening and Chase had a blast. They were handing out plastic fireman hats and of course that meant the Mickey ears had to go but hey, he sure made a cute fireman, er firemickey. Next we went to the local church's "Trunk or Treat" and Chase was just amazed at all the sites. He would get a candy for his bucket and then sample the next piece... who could blame him. We ended the night with a trip to Aunt Stacy's and then sitting on the porch and passing out candy. I have to say, it was a great Halloween for all!

I want some of dat!

This afternoon we attended yet another Fall Festival at the local preschool where Chase will eventually attend. One of his little buddies, Andi, who is four is a member of their cheer squad and quite the little cutie. Chase adores Andi and will gladly tell you that she is his girlfriend, although I seriously thought he had no clue what that meant. Well that is what I thought until he was watching her cheer and hollers, "I want some of dat!" Boy, if he was 10 years older he would be in some serious trouble!

Hi, I'm Grumpy

Either it's something in the air or stress may be getting to me because I have been a royal grump these last few days. Tuesday I came down with a nasty little bug and that on top of 20 kiddos that are beyond excited about Halloween's upcoming arrival about did me in this week. I've noticed that lots of little things are on my last nerve and cannot even express my excitement in the fact that tomorrow is Friday. I will give myself through tonight to finish my grumpiness and then tomorrow it's back to smiles (am I the only one that actually bargains w/myself).

I also have some AWESOME pictures of Chase and Madison to post, but since I have to first upload them to the server they will have to wait until tomorrow. I will tell you that it's worth the wait just to see those two cuties and gussied up in the Halloween costumes!

And, on a whole different note it seems as though *Operation - Shot in My Arse* (OSIMA) will start bright and early tomorrow morning with my first injection of FSH (follicle stimulating hormones... yes, hormones, just what Ms. Grumpy needs more of). Even better we are doubling my dose this time around, some girls have ALL THE FUN! Oh I can't wait.

Then and Now

Just more proof that Doodlebug is growing entirely too fast... *sigh*

Either side will be fine, they are both meaty...

Now seriously who says something like that? Hearing those words come out of my mouth made the first shot of IVF #3 abundantly realistic. I knew it was coming for almost three weeks now, but unlike the other times it seemed very surreal up until this point. I guess this means that we are really doing this.... again. One shot down, dozens and dozens (and dozens) to go. My lovely *friend* should arrive in 5ish days and then on d3 (day 3 for those not up on my IVF lingo) I will start my daily shots. Here goes nothing...

Dig Pit Lady Strikes Again

I was talking to another teacher at lunch today who mentioned that this past weekend she had taken her niece to the dino dig pit at the mall this past weekend and had a horrible experience. I bet you can already see where this is heading... yep, the dig pit lady struck again. Turns out that "V" still works there and is just a non friendly as ever! I swear I'm going to make a mission out of telling everyone to boycott that place (so if you're reading and live in our area.... boycott!) *wink*

And just an update on Jeff's cousin, the surgery went well and they took out two spots on his right lung and then found two more that were questionable so they removed those. He was in a lot of pain, but they currently have it under control and he is doing better. Thank you to those who sent P&PT his way, please keep them coming for him!

Prayer Request

Jeff's cousin, Wade, is having surgery today and we need all the prayers we can get for him. He is only one week older than me and has two little ones that are younger than Chase at home. He was diagnosed with cancer several years ago and had some nodules (I don't know the technical term) show up on his scan in his lungs earlier this year. He is having one surgery today and another in a couple of months. He is very strong and brave, but I can only imagine how scary it must all be. If you can spare a minute or two to send some prayers their way, I would be very grateful. Thank you!

From the mouth of babes....

I always tell parents that if they will only believe half of what their children tell them, then I will only believe half of what they tell me. That being said, I have one boy that is quite the handful... cute as a button, but quite the handful just the same. After several unanswered warnings for him to settle down I asked if he would like me to email his Dad about his behavior. He eyes got wide and he quickly replied, "Oh no because when I get home he'll give me a *loving swat* like yesterday!" I know I shouldn't have, but all I could do was chuckle. I think I'll keep that one for my future use with Mr. Chase!

Our Future Wildkat!

We live in a small town... a very small town. Our homecoming is Friday and although we are not big football fans, the elementary school I work at does a float for the Homecoming Parade each year. Because Cade and his Mommy were riding on the float they asked if we would like to ride with them. In past years I've always declined, but we figured what the heck... it would be good training and by the time the boys are in kindergarten they will have it down pat! Here are some parade highlights:
