Halloween party

Little Superheros!

Today was Gavin's Halloween party at daycare. He dressed as "black spiderman". His costume this year is Bumblebee-(Transformer not the cute bug with wings!) I guess I can no longer pick out his costumes... we are on to the superhero phase! He couldn't wear his transformer costume today because I never know how well he will take care of it and I didn't want it to be messed up before Halloween. My mom had bought him the spiderman costume at Christmas to play in. So he was excited to have 2 costumes this Halloween. Below are a few pictures of Gavin and his best friend Dalton (aka GI-Joe).

Moving Right Along...

Well over the past 2 weekends my husband, along with his Grandfather, His Uncle Mike, Joey and his Dad. They have now got walls up for the add-on. They are working today to finish the roof before the rain comes in again. Here are a few "during pictures."

Remodel and Add on

We are remodeling and adding on to my Grandparents home. This is located beside my parents where I grew up. I can't wait to be back in the country. I am so not a town person! I want to have privacy, so I am excited to be working and getting a little closer to being there. So far we have painted some, installed new lighting and ceiling fans, added on a concrete slab for a master bathroom and closet. We are re-doing the outside and inside, and doing the work ourselves so this may take a while, but at least the process has begun. Here are a few before pictures. I will be adding some "during" pics and then eventually the "After" pics.

They are going to start framing up the bedroom / bathroom this weekend! YAY!

Homecoming 2009

We went as a family to our Rivercrest Homecoming game. We sat with our friends Wendy and Joey and their son Colter. They had fun playing together. One of Gavin's babysitters, Amber was nominated as homecoming Queen so he was excited to see her! We left shortly after halftime because of the weather, but in the parking lot he got to see Amber and give her a hug, that made his night!

Ranger Game / Mercy Me Concert!

Our Church group (a few of them are not pictured... Shawn being one of them)

On September 19th, our young adults and teens went to the Ranger Game / Mercy Me concert in Arlington. We had a wonderful day! We had all been looking forward to getting away and enjoying a day together.

Jamie and I in the car on the way.

The Mercy me concert was very uplifting!

After the game we all decided to go to Saltgrass Steak House. We had a very eventful meal. I haven't laughed that hard in a long time. You had to be there! Here is Todd and Shawn after we finished eating.

We had a wonderful time, and looking forward to the next outing!

I am behind on my posts...

Well since school started, I have really gotten behind on my postings. Today, I am sick in bed, so I thought I would do some backtracking and post some new things.

Most recently... Sunday, Gavin woke up feeling achy and had a headache... so immediately I thought the flu. As you know I am a teacher and it has been spreading all over our school as it is everywhere. So we took him to the pediatric clinic on Sunday afternoon, they tested him and thankfully it was not the flu. The doctor said to keep him home for a couple of days and take tamiflu just in case it could turn into the flu. On Monday, I was supposed to have a double day at work (one long day that is credited as 2 days) starting at 1:00 we were to have parent conferences where they can pick up their first 6 weeks report card, etc. I was planning to take off the morning, and go in at 1:00 for the conferences and Shawn was going to take off the afternoon to stay with him. Again... plans change... I woke up Monday feeling sick. My throat was hurting, my sinuses were swollen, I felt weak and shaky... so I went to the dr at 11 totally prepared to go to work when I left, but when the nurse took my temp, she told me that I could not return to work for a couple of days. So I had to cancel the conferences. So now I am sick in bed, with nothing to do, hence the time to update!
