What we have been up to.....

First we had to say good - bye to Grandma Jean, it was a beautiful service, with everyone saying what they felt in their hearts and a resting place that I think she will like - all except for the snow.Then it was on to some stress reducing for The Man. He is doing better as long as he takes his medicine, but no worries, I am an evil caregiver and I am sure that he is envisioning me as the pumpkin so I will stop making him take pills - HE HATES THEM.
Sweet-boy so happy with his pumpkin and ready to set it out and try out the candle.

All our Jack O' Lanterns ready for the big night. We will see in this apartment what happens, but I think we will have it all done before the sun goes down. Drama Queen's school is having a big carnival so we will get goodies from there. Ooooohhh, scary.

While I was away I thought it would be a good idea to send the kids and Dad something fun for them to do, so thanks to MindWare I was set. I got Sweet-boy a Soda Pop making kit and here they are concocting something fizzy.

It was definitely a work in progress and so funny to see Sweet-boy trying the mix as he does not try anything. It was worth it to see his squished up face.

Sweet-boy begged me to take a picture of his creation and place it here. I know not what it is, but he is very proud of it.
There is a lack of Drama Queen on this post. She has hit that "DO NOT TAKE MY PICTURE MOM!" stage so I am lucky that she sat in front of her pumpkin. Ah well, I will get her another time. So that is what we have been up to this week.
Thank you to all that have sent so many prayers, condolences and kind thoughts our way. I could not survive this without all that goodness coming my way.

I had a friend in 5th grade that had a pop making machine. I thought it was the coolest thing ever! We made homemade coke by the gallon I swear. Your mom's grave looks beautiful with all those flowers on top. Best of luck this coming week!

I'm so glad to see pictures of the kids smiling. How is school going in a new place? I'm sure it is difficult, having to make new friends and get into new routines and such...

Awesome job on the pumpkins! We still haven't carved ours yet. Tomorrow is the goal.

Happy Halloween!

I'm so glad I'm not the only one who has a "DO NOT TAKE MY PICTURE! child in bloggyland. Makes me jealous of the mom/family blogs that show all their cute kids doing cute things...

I love how you are making memories, thinking of dear ones and making the best of things, despite hard and even heartbreaking circumstances. You inspire me, my friend. Sending you continued hugs and prayers.

If you need a smile, come visit my blog today. :-)
