Happy Halloween! I love seeing all the kids in their cute little costumes but if I'm being honest, after 24 years of dressing up kids for Halloween I'm so ready to just be done. Thankfully my friend Holly is still up for it and she totally took care of making the girls costume idea into a reality! Now I can just come along for our annual trick or treat walk with a glass of wine and no worries. Sadly it's still hot and muggy here in Texas. Enough about that though, here's a look at what we've been up to!
Back to Wharton to grab my Mamaw and head back for a follow up in Sugar Land. It was a long day but we had a good visit. She is going to be 90 in December and I'm really seeing her short term memory fade fairly rapidly it seems lately. She's had a lot of pain in her life losing all three of her children and two husbands already. The one blessing I can see right now is that the memory loss has seemed to ease her pain a little and I've seen her be a little more joyful. She's also been telling me lots of stories I don't remember hearing before.
Y'all, this kid. There are just no words for him sometimes. He is just always cracking me up or driving me crazy there is no in between.
Thursday night was quite exciting. The CSHS Cougars freshman team won district after a super game in which they had to beat both the other team and the officials. Dillon caught a pass and came down wrong on his knee and that was it for him. When the game was over the doctor helped him out of his football pants and put him on crutches and my child had no shorts with him. That did not stop him, however, from getting front and center in the picture! Shaking my head friends.
Of course as it was for most everyone else, Carly Jo's school had red ribbon week. Big mom fail as I did not take a picture of any of the days except Friday when she dressed as a purple skittle because she's "too sweet" for drugs.
Here's to hoping you have a day full of treats and few tricks come your way! :)
