Gobble Gobble Gobble

The boys celebrated Thanksgiving at school this past week each in their own unique classroom way. Here is a peek at what they did.

A Look Into The Life of Zane

Zane has been quite the busy little man these days. He is in preschool which means tons and tons of activities to keep his days full of fun. And mine as well.

Here is Zane having his Red, White and Blue Parade. This is where the four year olds get to ride their bike or scooter around the parking area. Zane chose his scooter. The kids also make shirts to commemorate the day. Why the school has it in the middle of October is beyond me. I just go with the flow and don't ask.

Another activity he did at school was the Fall Festival. His preschool does not acknowledge Halloween instead they celebrate Fall.

And last but definitely too cute and sweet is Zane hanging out with Gypsy in the dogs crate. Yes, Zane can be found in the dogs home during any given day. Strange child indeed!

Good Grief!

The boys school had a pumpkin contest where they had to make a book character out of a pumpkin. Any size and shape just no carving. Evan decided on Snoopy. While looking through our book collection Trey choose Woodstock. The boys made them together from the Thanksgiving Snoopy book. I think they are adorable. And we still have them on the front porch if you are so inclined to see them up close and personal.

Fall Festival

Besides Halloween, the kiddies got to enjoy wearing their costumes for other Fall events. Like our church, BayLife, annual Fall Festival. It was a fun night filled with games and friends.

Since this Halloween was on a weekend night(again) the kiddies and I headed to a friends house for treat or treating. It is nice going with a group. I got to relax and just walk with the kiddies. I was not in charge. In fact I hung out in the back of the pack and watched. I watched all fourteen(not including baby Tybee)kids rush up to doors and overwhelm the people. But is Halloween...what do they expect.

It was a hot and very humid night so most of the kiddies were tired and wanted to end the candy feast. But a few strong and brave trick or treaters wanted to continue the nights journey. These babes are the remaining few who braved more houses for more candy. Notice two of them were mine.

I am giving my apologies to my loyal readers(all one of you). I have been amiss of my blog. I have thought many times of blogging but then I just don't. For no good reason other than I have been lazy. Procrastination is my middle name if you have not heard. Well.....I have had a reason or two for not blogging if you really want to hear(or read them). I have started substituting at a couple of elementary schools in the area. Only about two days a week. Pile that on top of my father is in a nursing home right now. My sister and I have vowed to visit him at least once a week. That is three days in the week I am super busy. The other two it seems as though I have had school activities or household chores. The weekends seem to fly by with church and kiddie activities. Whew......that makes one tired, unorganized and crazed mom. I am trying to get used to working and being out of the house so much after seven years being home. I am doing it all I just have had to put a few things on the back burner....blogs and friend interactions(yes I have neglected my human counterparts and they are grumbling ...can't you hear them!!!). But I promise my loyal and steadfast readers. I will not neglect you again(well at least not for 2009.....too many pic moments I must recap).
