Although I'd like to take full credit for the originality of the boys' costumes this year, I cannot. They came up with this idea all on their own. I did, however, make the Hot Dog Stand box. I'm thinking of giving Martha Stewart a run for her money. Those of you that know me well know that couldn't be further from the truth! I don't have a creative bone in my body. I find this very disturbing because I see images in my head that I can never bring to fruition due to this little problem of mine. The boys decided to go, obviously, as a hot dog stand and a hot dog. Or as I call him, my little weenie. In my very humble opinion, they had the best costumes around!
October has come and gone, and still no house. We have an offer in on one right now in South Jordan that I'm really hoping will happen. Both Steve and I like this house, which is rare! I am finding this whole process to be disheartening. It makes me wonder why oh why we cannot find a house that someone will agree to sell to us. I shouldn't complain though. All in all, we are lucky. We have each other and we have two great kids. I need to remember to be humble and grateful for what I do have. But darnit, it's so hard sometimes. And as you know, patience is NOT one of my virtues.
The boys are doing great. Both are doing really well in school and both like their teachers which makes getting them up and ready to go in the mornings so much easier. Getting ready to get back to the grind for baseball for Tanner. Last season they started practicing in November but I think they're going to push it back some this year. Starting in November makes for a very long season. Landon has decided that he wants to stick with soccer. I have to admit I'm a little disappointed, but only because I don't understand the rules. Guess that will come in time! I'm already trying to figure out how I'm going to juggle student teaching, Tanner's baseball practice three to four times a week and Landon's soccer come spring time. It's stressing me out and we're not even through Christmas yet! I can totally sympathize with those Calgon commercials from my childhood. Calgon....take me away....
