Just a short update...

This will be way shorter than the past updates, since we haven't done much since the last update.  LOL!

Pretty much since school started we have just been working to get into a new routine, including a later school start time.  It is kind of nice not to be rushing as much as last year.  Her school starts 40 minutes later than her school last year.  So this morning before the bus came, I actually had time to eat breakfast, unload the dishwasher, clean up after breakfast and even catch up on Facebook all before we needed to head out for the bus.  :)

The crazy starts tomorrow, with dance on Wednesdays and Thursdays each week.  We decided to pass on gymnastics this fall.  We will see how everything is going so far.  Hope also decided she was  going to pass on doing The Nutcracker this year too, so she could save the money toward a puppy.

I wish I could tell her we were going to get a puppy sooner rather than later, but I can't.  And that is all I have to say about that.  I think the saying goes..."if you can't say anything good, don't say anything at all".  :)  Just another reason to look forward to spring.

The upside to the above is that I BETTER get a lot of extra scrapbooking time since I won't need to go outside with a puppy for potty breaks.  Hint...Hint!

Friday night, Joe and Hope watched the Chiefs game together.


joe dug out all his Chief's stuff for the game.  :)  Too bad they lost, maybe next time!


Hope fell asleep before the end of the game, so she painfully made him watch the end of it again (on DVR) the next morning when she got up.  LOL!

Sunday, the twins came over for a playdate and an afternoon dip in the hot tub!


That is about it...here are some birthday cards to share too, in honor of my friend Shannon's birthday today and Kelley's BIG 40 tomorrow!  Hope you had/have a great one!










Well, I am off to finish up a load of laundry and call it a night!  Have a good one...
