October Snow Day

This morning I woke up with a ton of things to get done because I had a very busy day. This is what my plans were;

1. P90X workout with friends from 9:00-10:00
2. Visiting teachers coming at 10:15
3. A friend from Jacob's school class and family for lunch and playing at 11:00
4. Drop Jacob off at school at 12:30
5. Visit teach at 12:45

I quickly got started on my day so I would be able to stay on top of everything. Then #1 Cancelled, #2 Cancelled, #3 Cancelled, #4 Cancelled, #5 Cancelled

My busy day has turned into a stay at home, do nothing day. I might work on scrapbooking or maybe start a new book. I just finished The Hunger Games and I loved it! Now I have to read Catching Fire. I highly recommend The Hunger Games if anyone is looking for a good book.

Who would have thought there would be a snow day in October? Not me.

First Kiss Day

Ben and I had our first kiss on October 4, 2001. Every year we celebrate first kiss day by buying our Halloween pumpkins. Since the 4th fell on a Sunday this year we went pumpkin shopping on Monday evening. It was the perfect day, I decorated for fall/Halloween during the day while Jacob was at school, David at a friends house, and Madeline sleeping. In the evening we went pumpkin shopping then came home to eat pumpkin chocolate chip cookies and candy corn. Yum.

Here are a few pictures of some of our decorations.

We hunted through the bin at Walmart to find the best five pumkins $4.50 could buy.

These are the best cookies! All you do is take a spice cake mix, a can of pumpkin and a bag of chocolate chips. Seriously delicious, you should make them.
