Trick or treat, smell my feet, oh wait.....I got off course there for a minute.  My 3 beauties had a blast tonight trick-r-treating.  I thought for sure we would have a toddler meltdown since little miss is not a fan of talking to outsiders.  Needless to say after the first trunk-r-treat she started to get it down.  Then she was flying from the stroller before we even stopped to run up those steps!  It was like watching someone climb Mt.Everest watching her tackle all the steps and shove her way past all the lil kids.  All for a few pieces of candy.  Between the candy, jack-o-laterns, singing decorations, and leaves on the ground she was in Heaven.  Running and kicking through the leaves, who cares if mommy and daddy say to get off the lawns a 100x's.  There was no stopping her.  She held her own with her sisters and walked most of the way on her 2 tiny feet.  Now everyone is tucked away all cozy in bed exhausted from all the fun =)

One of 'those' weeks....

This has been one of 'those' weeks where you feel like your going to break!  All 3 girls have taken turns having some form of a cold and cough.  When the baby gets sick, everyone pays.  It doesn't help matters shes in this phase of hitting and scratching.  E & M have so many battle wounds from lil Miss this week alone.  It's funny how when you have kids you forget these awful stages. Then again I suppose if we remembered everything as if it was yesterday no one would procreate. It has also dawned on me December is right around the corner with a craft show, and......I'm no where near ready!  I will not lose it I will not lose it.....Miss Maia's birthday is next week and has informed me of her mile long list that she would like.  What she doesn't know is I purchased her birthday gift back in July =)  We have been horrible at following a school schedule this week so next week will be a fun catch up week.

Best Vacation Ever

SOOOO enjoying this wonderful break from usual life!  My gift for Sweetest day this year was a break from my 'job' ranging from scrubbing the toilets to cooking dinner!  I enjoyed it immensely. It worked out perfectly that my husband was taking a 4 day vacation. Of course when the idea was first mentioned I will admit I laughed thinking to myself 'yeah right'.  Shockingly I was proved wrong and loving every minute of it!  We are now on day 3 and I can't recall one thing I've had to clean, cook, or bath the kids!  Anyone that knows me know that is a big thing!  I'm the one that goes crazy if there dare be a spec of dirt on the floor or a stain on the childrens clothes, an item not in it's place, the baby rearranged my pantry.  Mind you it rarely happens that my house is anywhere near to what I would prefer, but when you have 3 children and a husband it's not always possible.  Except now HE's the one taking care of everything!  To know that I won't have to go downstairs and clean the kitchen after the dinner mess, bath the kids, do laundry, clean the house, divide up the chili he made into future meals is so.......peaceful. Did I mention he even bought me my favorite cake and the biggest bag of Halloween candy he could find?  Now thats true love =)

We want cake!

A couple months ago my wonderful children were doing what they weren't suppose to*GASP* playing on the stairs!  Needless to say they managed to knock out a post on the railing going upstairs that was just put in.  Of course we don't know who did it, what happened, and no one is going to fess up.  Tonight daddy decided to sneak downstairs while doing school work and get himself some coffeecake but wasn't going to share with the baby since he had to 'work on school'.  I say that loosely because I'm pretty sure he's just up there playing with his IPOD or searching the Internet for running gear or drooling over computer parts.  Well lil miss not one to let ANYTHING stand in her way macgyvered her way through the hole and then proceeded to run up the stairs which is when I heard the pitter patter of feet above me.  I'm pretty sure she was following the smell of cake at this point.  She made it, got her cake, and ate it while smiling the entire time. 

Miss K Pillowcase & Crib Sheet

I decided to put my skills to more productive use when it comes to our family.  I have been looking for flannel sheets for the babys crib when it hit me, make em! duh!  It was a bit more interesting since flannel is more stretchy then the cotton, but I made it.  After a trip to Joanns with serger in tow that is.  Apparently the user manual wasn't user friendly enough for me. Now my youngest has her first ever pillowcase with minky rosette trim(that was another story) and matching sheet to go with her bed.  Now I need to learn how to do sheets for twin beds and I'll be all set!

As you can see I was a bit off on centering the name, but I'm sure she'll survive ;)
