Where have I been??

Have you been wondering this yourself?? 

October has flown by and I feel like I have missed out on lots of fun activities.  I feel like I’ve been sick for most of October, and have just not had any energy to get out and do all the fall activities I enjoy, or blog for that matter.  I finally gave in and went to Urgent Care Saturday night and guess what?  I have pneumonia!  So I guess there really was a reason I have been feeling so tired and crappy!  In any case, I’ve got my antibiotics and am hopefully on the mend!

So... what have we been up to other than sickness?
--Soccer!  And hooray, last weekend was the end!!  It’s just too cold out there.
--Went to our first Elementary school open house and did our first school fundraiser (Thanksgiving pies!!)
--I started my Christmas shopping,
--Visited with family.  We got to visit my parents and the kiddos had fun outside playing with bubble guns and 4 wheelers.
--We had to put our 17 year old cat to sleep.  Very sad day.
--We got a new dog!  Her name is Daisy and she is a sweetheart.  She is a rescue from North Carolina.  She was saved from a kill shelter with her 4 puppies.  She is a total cuddle bug and fitting right into our family!

And now here we are, 3 days before Halloween!
There were tons of Halloween crafts and baking I wanted to do with the kiddos but just didn’t get to because of not feeling well.  But... we do plan on carving (or maybe just decorating?) pumpkins and of course going Trick or Treating!!  I will also be attending Nick’s Halloween party at school on Friday.  Can’t wait!  We also have a couple other Halloween activities we may check out during the day Saturday.

I’ll close today by showing you some of our fall decorations...since I never got that post up!!!

Check back here on Friday for my favorites!!!!


  1. Being sick is no fun, glad you are on the mend. Sounds like you had a pretty busy month for being sick, there were a lot of crafts and things I wanted to do with my littles but time got away from us. There's always next year :) Thanks for sharing :)

  2. First off....I have been wondering about you! I'm so sorry you have pneumonia but thank goodness for medication. Second, what a list of great things you have got to do! Third...that dog, yes!!!! How precious is she?!?! And she's all the way from my state? WHOA! How did you get a dog from NC? Last - that mantle!!!!

  3. Awww, I love the pumpkins! I want to add a bunch of pumpkin decorations around my house this year too, but I'm waiting until it all goes on clearance. (=
    What a cute new dog. Did you keep her puppies too?
