I Love Vacation

It has been so nice the past two days because I have slept in. I am a much happier person when I get lots of sleep. I am definitely not one of those people who can get just 7 hours a night. I know my blog is boring right now, but I don't have much to say. Maybe after Christmas I can play catch up on posting some pictures.

Merry Christmas :)

Our Halloween

Some of our best friends spent Halloween weekend with us. We had so much fun! Saturday, we did Trunk or Treat. Sadly, I have no pictures. Sunday, we did Halloween at our house. Pictures speak louder than words.

Cute Babies

See my niece and nephew in their Halloween costumes here. My mom made the hair and I made the shirts. It is amazing what you can do on Powerpoint.

New with us

  • We are getting excited for Halloween. We plan to have a pirate ship in our driveway. Also, we will be taking the bubble from last year up to our church event and make it a black light room.
  • We still love our house and we are still slowly unpacking and organizing everything.
  • I am working lots lately because the school dedication ceremony is next week.
  • We are finally starting to feel like we know our way around in our part of town.
  • We still miss our friends that we moved away from last year and our family back home. I wish I could convince everyone to move here :)

What's up with us?

  • We have a new niece and nephew!!
  • We bought all the materials to create a raised garden bed
  • We also bought some plants: jalapeno peppers, serrano peppers, poblano peppers, sweet tomatoes, raspberries, blackberries, and blueberries. We got a great deal since it is the end of the season. Everything was at least 50% off!
  • My sister is moving back to Texas!!
  • Halloween is next month and our theme for the driveway is pirates.
  • We are prepping to host my family for Thanksgiving this year. I am determined to make my own turkey.

Blog Update

Reading Chez's blog inspired me to update mine as well.

Our summer in bullet point form:
  • We bought a house around the corner from where we were. We love it!
  • I took a two week course in Orff Schulwerk, an approach to teaching music. It was eye-opening and I can't wait to use what I have learned.
  • We went to North Carolina to see my sister.
  • We spent lots of time with our family in Texas.
  • Grant built a fire pit in our back yard and is dreaming of cooler weather to build a stream/waterfall/pond.
  • We spend just as much time in our yard as we did in the other house with the pool. It helps that we have a great deck and lots of trees.
  • Our cats love going between inside and outside through the pet door in our new house.
  • This week, I have been setting up my classroom at the new school. I am so happy to have my very own room (last year I was on the stage).

Buying this house...

We close at the end of this month. Moving date is still up in the air. I am kind of sad to leave the pool in our current back yard, but happy to leave the actual house. God definitely led us to the house we are buying (or maybe just away from the one we live in).

Want a Dog or Puppy?

We found this mama dog and her three puppies close by our home. We left them where we found them because we cannot handle a dog with our cats. Let me know if you want one.
