Halloween Highlights

I survived Halloween, but just barely. I'm pretty sure Jillian is still recovering. It was a rough weekend.

Thursday October 30th: Fall Festival from 6-9. And yes we stayed the entire time. The kids had so much fun. Even Riley who no longer goes to that school had a blast hanging out with his friends. The kids ran around the school with a million dollars worth of punch cards and played games for three hours straight. Collecting a ton of candy along the way of course.

Friday October 31st: Went trick or treating with 5 kids at my office. Dropped Jillian off at school for her lunch, nap, and party. Went to the store and bought 8 dozen cookies for the Trunk or Treat party. Went home and made 4 kids lunch and baked the cookies. Took the kids downtown to trick or treat, picked up Jillian, went to trick or treat a couple of grandma's houses. Went home and decorated the trunk for trunk or treating. Went trunk or treating. Came home and passed out.

Saturday November 1st: Went and bought a new BSU shirt, because there was a game that night and pick up a few things at Target. Took Riley to practice. Planned to go grocery shopping while he was at his one hour practice and realized Jillian had fallen asleep in the car. Went home so she could nap during his practice and did laundry and picked up the house. Went back and picked up Riley and then went grocery shopping. Had a break between grocery shopping and taking Riley to his championship game one hour early. Was almost late dropping Riley off at his game. We then watched his poor team lose 0-16. Little boys were crying. It was sad. Riley on the other hand was not upset. He's a half glass full kind of kid. He was excited they were at the championship game, their team was the only team undefeated and they went the entire season without another team scoring against them. So there!

Sunday November 2nd: Woke up, finished the laundry, started cleaning up the house to get ready for my wine tasting party. Found score cards online but we were out of ink. Went to the store and bought ink for the printer, went to another store to buy the wine and some rolls. They didn't have the rolls I wanted. Went to yet another store to get wine and rolls and happened across some Doritos on sale. All during this time dragging poor Jillian along, who is easily distracted.

For instance, we went to get a free cookie at the bakery counter and she spotted this cake. A Disney Princess cake in the shape of a castle. She wants this cake. She wanted me to buy the cake and take it home. Right then. She didn't want the cookie anymore. In fact, when the woman asked if she wanted a pumpkin cookie she told her no, she needed the cake. Needless to say great grandma loves to spoil the Jillian princess and for her birthday in a couple of weeks she is going to have a Disney Princess cake.

Okay, I was just distracted. After shopping I went home and made the kids lunch. While I was at the store they were suppose to clean the playroom and the boys' bedroom. I cleaned the girls' bedroom the day before. They did have it cleaned but Riley had to make a point of letting me know that Darby fell asleep and didn't help. Darby is sick. I teased her that she always gets sick right before I have a party. It's weird.

And I had my party. It was a success. Everyone came, we drank, we ate. We teased my friend Bert. It was so fun. I love wine tasting parties! Well, I just love parties. And I have a lot of parties to put together in the coming weeks.

Okay, this long post is what you get when I only have a chance to blog about once a week. Sorry about that. Go vote!
