Ummmm…these pictures were taken like a month ago…just tells you how far behind on things I am right now!
Anyway – it was a fun little school sponsored festival. We all had a great time!
Do you ever just have some days where at the end you fell like this:
It seems I have been having weeks worth of those kinds of days. I feel like I have so many different things right now pulling and vying for my attention that I can’t ever seem to get ahead.
I imagine that in some small way, this must be what it feels like to be drowning. You see the surface so far away – you struggle and struggle and struggle and stretch and push yourself even harder – at yet you never seem to be able break the plain of the water. I’m hoping that by the time Christmas is over that I’ll be able to burst through the surface and just breathe. And relax. If only for a little while. You know, spend a day like a two year old and just lay down and rest and pretend to sleep anytime I feel like it :)
While we don’t get to enjoy the fall colors here nearly as much as happens further north, we do at least get a little taste of it here and there. Isn’t it a little ironic that fall colors are all colors in the “warm” spectrum? Reds, oranges, yellows – all wonderfully warm. And yet they are here to herald in the cold.
No matter their purpose, they are beautiful.
or cry??? I know it is probably so very wrong, but we can’t help but laugh at Layton sometimes when he cries. He does a bang up good job of making himself look pitiful, but when we know it it is completely fake – we just laugh. Even he does. He has requested to watch this little video of himself crying over and over again – and do you know what he does every single time he watches it – he giggles. We are one crazy little family!!!
First we have Luke Skywalker, Jedi Knight, conqueror of the Dark Side
Next, it’s Princess Leah – leader of the Rebel Alliance – and she leads with ATTITUDE
And last, but not least, their adorable droid – R2D2
Needless to say – we had a very FORCEFUL Halloween!!
