Happy Halloween!!

Tuesday was Halloween and boy was it fun!! We had the MEAP Tailgate at school at lunchtime and then after that we had our Halloween parade and then our party. It was so much fun! The kids had a great time and there was a ton of candy!! I came home and Steve and I sat outside and passed out candy. We only had 45 trick-or-treaters this year. I was slightly disappointed, but we had left-over candy so I was happy!!

On Wednesday, my student teacher Diane started teaching full time. She is doing a great job-- I feel a little weird just sitting around-- so maybe this week I'll go and visit other people and see what they're doing. She's being observed on Monday-- should be interesting. It's a cooperative lesson... and she's having them make terrariums for science to teach them the water-cycle. She's very creative and brings so many new ideas to the room!! I love it!

Wednesday was also the two year anniversary of Grandma Burney's death. It was sad... I thought about her all day long. I miss her so much... and Grandma Ghrist. I know they're both watching over me, but I still miss seeing them and hearing their voices and laughter.

Yesterday I went to Your Comfort Zone and got my hair highlighted by Trish. I was nervous because I have not found a good hair dresser since Rochelle... and I hate it when the person that does my hair makes it look stupid. However... Trish did a great job!! My hair is lighter (yay) and she did my eyebrows too!! She thinned out my hair and straighted it for me. It looks very cute today!!

Today Steve and I got up pretty early (8am) and we had breakfast (bacon, eggs and toast) and then we went and saw Open Season. It was absolutely hilarious!! It's been a while since I laughed so hard at a movie! We then went to Target on the way home and I got the Tayler Swift cd and the Weird Al cd. I was very excited!!

We got home and then mom came over and stayed for a bit. We called dad and asked if he wanted to meet for dinner and to our surprise he did! We met at the new Mongolian BBQ here in Canton and it was soooo yummy!! I was worried about dad because mom said that he didn't like Monglian BBQ (she didn't think he'd want to go there for dinner)... he went up for THREE bowls!! He loved it!!

We just got home (not too long ago) and now we're just about ready for bed. Tomorrow I've got my EC meeting at 4pm and then it's back to work. Next Saturday we've got Main Dish... and then we're supposed to go out with Aimee and Matt. It should be fun since I feel like I haven't seen Aimee in forever. I used to see her all the time over the summer, but now that we're both back to work-- I don't see her as much as I'd like.

Until next time...

I can't wait until Thanksgiving!!! Only 19 days!!!

This was our first weekend home for more than a month!! On Saturday we watched some movies... we saw Poisidon (not very entertaining if you ask me) and I finally watched Hoot. It wasn't as good as the book, but I didn't really expect that anyway. We didn't do much else on Saturday.

Today we slept in (it was so nice) and then set all the clocks back an hour (I LOVE Daylight Savings Time)!!! We ate breakfast and showered and headed off to Costco and Kroger for the weekly shopping trip. We got home and then I had to leave for Gen's house for the Junior Circle event.

We made cookies (from scratch) for the ZA and AB actives for Halloween. It was fun... but was a lot of work. I stayed until 5:15 and even that at (4 hours and 15 minutes) we still didn't have all the cookies done. We definitely could have used some additional hands to help.

Anyway- the cookie making was exciting and fun. It was nice to hang with the girls for the afternoon and talk about girl stuff. The next JC event is going to be December 2nd and we're going to have dinner and then go to the comedy club for some laughs. Should be a good time!

That's it from me..
