[simply] Tuesday

What a fun day for all the kiddos!  I always feel so sorry for all the teachers on this day.  When I worked at the local elementary school years and years ago, I always had such mixed emotions about this day.  The kids were always over the moon excited about everything, but in most ways, I think the following day was even worse, when they brought in all their candy for lunch.  I lost count of how many times I said, "Eat your main thing first, THEN you can have the candy." 

But it was fun. 

My dad, stepmom and sister came over for dinner last night.  Terri will be in town all this week, and we'll get to see her a few more times before she heads back to North Carolina.  I made chicken tortilla soup again, because when I made it a couple weeks ago, I didn't make enough.  We love to eat the leftovers, and there wasn't near enough.  Last night I doubled the recipe and we have plenty to eat on all week.

Today I'll be doing the laundry I didn't get around to yesterday, and cleaning of the floors, both upstairs and downstairs. 

We have friends coming over tonight to sit around the fire pit with us as we pass out candy to all the trick or treaters, and we'll eat hot dogs and rotel cheese dip. 

I don't think any of the boys are going trick or treating this year!  That's sad, but I know they're older, so this is life, I suppose.  They can enjoy the fire pit with us. 

Because I never post pictures of Graham, I love what I came across on Timehop last week, from one of the dress up nights in youth.


He was Woody, from Toy Story. 

And one of my favorite pictures of Drew came up last week on Timehop, as well.


I'm pretty sure he still considers this night one of the best of his life.  He has always loved girls.  When he was little, instead of saying a girl was "hot" [which I don't like to hear], he called them "spicy".

Oh, the memories. 

I'm looking for a picture with both Jonah and Noah dressed up, but this was all I could find.  I just don't want to leave them out.


This was back in the day when we went to the pumpkin patch every year.  They were four in this picture.  Man, they were ADORABLE! 

Have a fun day!  Whether you're taking your kids door to door, or if you're handing out candy, I hope it's a great one.  Thanks for reading!  Love to all.
