Halloween Poem

Spooky lights and spooky sounds
Web-caked walls are all around
Spiders scrambling everywhere
The wind whistles in the air.

Werewolves, ghosts and little black cats
Screeching bats and witchy hats
Twigs snap as clouds cover the moon
Barking dogs and eerie tunes.

Jack o' lanterns light the street
Ring the doorbell, 1, 2, 3!
The sweetest sound on Halloween
Is children saying, "Trick or Treat!"

Sometimes Your Mom Has to Remind You to Blog

Summer is over and we are back in the busy season of schedules and school. Sometimes I forget anyone else might read this blog and then my Mom will let me know she is expecting a new post and I realize I haven't written anything since July. Such is life.
Anyway. A few pictures for you, my faithful readers (all 2 of you).
We ended the Summer by surprising the kids when my Sister and her Husband (who have not seen the kiddos since last October's trip to Disney) came for a visit from California. The Girl was over the moon to say the least. She and my Sister are two of a kind. We miss them already.
Here is "Miss Thing" prepping for her future fame by borrowing her Aunt's shades and shoes. Should I be worried?
And of course, First day of Fourth Grade. How did that happen? I am not even sure how I am going to handle her turning 10 in a few short weeks.
The Boy has been busy covering our driveway, sidewalks, front porch and inside our garage with his "people." This is a drawing of him and his Sister. Notice she has ponytails...none of the people usually have arms. He says it's because their hands are in their pockets. Genius.
He's also been busy saving the world. Not sure from what...but he does enjoy dressing up and jumping off of things. I still think he makes a better "Danger Boy" than a "Superman."
And here it is. First day of Preschool. Actually, they moved him to Pre-K. Theoretically he could go to Kindergarten next fall. I can't even talk about that. But, my gosh, he LOVES school. It makes us so happy to see how much he enjoys learning and playing at his school.

The Dog is not sure how she feels about all this change. The first few days she was pretty mopey.
Now The Dog and The Cat are in a pretty good routine. Synchronized napping.

That's it for now. Expect a hugely sappy post coming up when The Girl turns 10.
