what has been going on around here

::book club...last night was my book club meeting. as usual, it was the highlight of my month. i am in awe of these special ladies, each one different and all equally fantastic. these amazing women gleaning a different prospective from the reading and sharing it in a unique way. it is amazing how we go from deep insights to rolling on the floor laughing in seconds...i thought poor Brenda Vaughn was going to need oxygen when Laura and I talked about our weekend trip...bathrooms and such!

::halloween...Sawyer could not be more excited about trunk or treat. he wanted to go as gumbo (our rooster) but there wasn't a chicken costume to be had in his size. so he is a dragon and a more enthusiastic dragon there can not be. i love to see these glimpses of life through his 5 year old eyes. always full of wonder and a sense of newness. i love that kid.
Cameron is ready as well. he and cullen (cam's best bud) have planned many different costumes....possibly a Hagrid costume in the making. i can't wait to see what they come up with. those 2 are their own little selves. what a wonderful thing it is to have 3 boys that march to their own beat and are proud of it....i am proud of them!

::dentist...poor Kevin has to have a root canal. he has been battling this tooth for a month. i will be glad for him to feel normal again. i don't know how he has functioned with tooth pain...i would have crawled up in a ball somewhere long ago.

::cross country...Cameron has his district cross country meet today. he has practiced and practiced. he runs after school with his team and then will come home and run some more. that determined boy has worked so very hard...run like the wind my sweet boy!

::drama...jordan has been ecstatic about his theatre arts II class this year. every single day he has the class, he comes home, eyes ablaze with an animated, exciting story to tell. he has been working on a skit for "scary stories", an annual presentation for the town children just before halloween. they performed for the Silsbee Little Theater group on Sunday and will for the town children Thursday night. what a blessing to watch your child to be so happy in his life.

::Julia Child Birthday Celebration...STOKED! i can not wait for my friend Chris Eldredge's birthday bash on Saturday. his fab wife Laura gifted him Mastering the Art of French Cooking and The Way to Cook by Julia Child. they have asked me to come cook some Julia wonderfulness with Chris on Saturday to be served at a dinner party that night. it is going to more of a present for me than Chris i think....what fun!

::baking...i have to bake 8 dozen cookies and icing for Sawyer's Fall Festival tomorrow morning. for tonight's trunk or treat and cake walk, its more cookies and a cake. so i better get back in the kitchen.

our Halloween plans are made and being carried out.....what are yours?

  1. I love reading your blog entries. If Cameron succeeds and becoming Hagrid for Halloween, you have to take a picture.
