Where have I been? Why have I been so slack on my blog lately? I have been volunteering at my kids' school, organizing girl scout activities, cleaning and re-cleaning my house and doing doctor appointments out the wazoo. I think everyone in this house has had 3 appointments at some point over the past few weeks. We are trying to get all our yearly visits in before the end of December - some benefits do not rollover from year to year. The kids have had wellness visits to the pediatrician, Sophie to the vet, everyone to the dentist, etc..
I recently went to the eye doctor earlier this week. I am so thrilled I can now see! My prescription is minimal but it makes a world of difference. The kids are a little upset because they think it means I am getting old. Hopefully they will get use to me wearing them.
|I can see!!!!|
Pearson also had his yearly wellness visit and he weighs 75 lbs and has grown 3 1/2 inches in 5 months - Whoa! His Dr said he is very healthy :)
Yes - Halloween has come and gone. And I didn't post anything about our it - I. am. slack!!! Here are some of the pics of them carving the pumpkin with Dad and from trick-or-treating night. They had a blast going through our neighborhood with their friends and racking up on candy. Pearson is always so polite and every house he went to - he would say, "Thank you Mam/Sir. I hope you have a good Halloween!" He is always such a sweet boy...true Boy Scout.

Killian & Mackenzie were vampires and Pearson was Wolverine.
|He was wanting me to hurry up taking pictures so he could go!|
|The candy was ridiculous!|
Aside from all of this - our sweet little friend Lauren turned 6. She had her party at a local ranch. This was so much fun! Her Mom Kelly made the cake - she always does a terrific job.
|Killian loved getting to pet all of them.|
Well that is the 'short' of it. I have just finished buying Christmas gifts for the kids. I just want to be able to relax for a while...at least until Mackenzie's slumber party in a few weeks. ;)
I hope you guys have been doing well and I can't wait to catch up on your blogs. It's almost Friday! Yay!
