Yuppers it is Monday once again, and so far its a good Monday. Soooo much better than this time last week. Daddy Jimmy was buried Saturday with full military honors. The pastor had talked about his distinguished military career and when one of the guards presented the flag to Jean, he was actually crying.
Chris wants to thank everyone for all the kind words he has received through my blog and e-mail. He will be doing a guest post here soon which many of you said you are looking forward to.
I came across a new blog today. Right now Jeannie is having a cookbook giveaway and she gives you a chance for 11 entries! If you love cookbooks and want to eat healthy, even if you can't boil water, then this cookbook is for YOU! So click here and get your entries in! The contest runs 11/7-11/14.
Also, Jojo of Random Insanities found a way to help out the Children's Miracle Network by creating your own version of the Pringles Potato Chip can:) so have fun and of course go help the kids!
Nicole competed in her UIL Oral Reading competition but didn't place. We found out this was the first year for this particular event and NO ONE from her school placed, so now that they know what to expect they will do even better next year. I'm so proud of her for entering on her own though.
Friday I got to sub for 4th grade and had Nicoles class in the afternoon. I had asked her that morning what she was going to call me and she said mom. I told her to TRY to call me Ms Able and at one point she got flustered and called me Ms Mom! hahaha. I had to give them two tests, and they weren't all that happy. At one point Nicole came to ask me a question about the test and I helped her like I would any other child but I did not give the answer. She seemed a bit put back with that , that I didn't just give her the answer. Imagine that.
Well fall has definitely hit our part of Texas. We had storms during the night and around 5ish or so this afternoon we are supposed to get slammed with storms, hail, high winds and isolated tornadoes. Yippee. You know that word sends shivers down my spine. It's also chily enough to warrant sweat pants, so at least I'm comfy.
Starting to TRY to figure out what we will be doing for Thanksgiving, we might be getting to go out of town to my MILs so that will be fun.
Hope everyone has a fantastic day !
