Flying to Dallas tomorrow afternoon for the weekend... I'm getting to spend some family time and see some good friends I'm needing a dose of!
Dad has to take care of the trick or treating, getting big girl to a couple of places and keeping up with the other girl...Hope he's up to the challenge and hope my head doesn't explode on the plane...

We carved a pumpkin, wait, she carved a pumpkin for the little Halloween party we had... I wasn't allowed to help. I love that she wants to do it herself but of course I would have loved to offer my opinion on how it should look...I'm getting used to no one wanting my opinion anymore! But, you know I'm just happy for a reason to decorate for something!
And Mike, don't think he even noticed that he wore it during part of a football game...

Jennifer is coming tomorrow for the weekend.
Sat. night we have a little party going on for a few friends of the kid's... they want us to try to do something to scare them at the party, I just want it to look cute... we have completely different idea's of how this party should go!

Big girl: yes, please
Dad: No, I think we are going to a restaurant while you're at dance
Big girl: that's not fair
Dad: it's not fair I can't take dance
Big girl: old men can't take dance
Dad: girl's can't eat out

Yesterday all four of us were in the car and from the back the Big girl is telling us a lovely tale of two people "making out" on the bus...before I can stop this conversation from progressing she adds something about someone talking about a condom on the bus.... as I am trying not to sound horrified as I tell her we need to change the subject...the little girl asks what a condeming is... I'm stammering saying "nothing, we'll talk about it later" all the while giving the Big Girl the evil eye in the rear view mirror... by this time Mike has started laughing and the Little girl adds "apparently dad knows what it is...is it a drug, what does it do". I could have gone forever without that conversation!
It was awful! It is not right, things I'm ready for them to learn are presented on the bus! I don't know how else to get them home... I've told them to sit in the front and not talk to anyone! I'm feeling like the bad mom letting them ride the bus...ugh. We had a long talk after the little girl got out at dance about appropriate talk around the sister!
I am thankful tomorrow is Friday.
I am thankful we don't have any plans this weekend
I am thankful God stirred Mike's heart a little this week

I made some great homemade salsa. I had queso, salsa and other snacks ready for the girls and their two friends that came home with them. I even made chocolate cupcakes to make Chili's 'molten lava' cakes for them to have later tonight.
It's amazing what you can get done in a few quiet hours!
Here is my plan for tonight:

That alone had me start my weekend feeling thankful... Now I'm also thankful for a very uneventful weekend, Mexican food twice this weekend, I found a new good wine, a good sermon at church this morning (I guess being baptist the sermon shouldn't have been right next to the wine but just thinking in order of the weekend), a very loud thunder storm this afternoon, a short nap during the stormy weather, and the whole family laying around watching a Cowboy game. It's a good day.
