Happy Sugar High Day!

The kids are sleeping peacefully, bellies full of sugary goodness. The husband has a bunch of youth (the male variety) over watching a classic Arnold Swarzeneggar movie and I am sitting at the computer listening to some rockin' Jack Johnson and eating chocolate bars that will do nothing but add anguish and inches to my waist. Yes our day was pretty eventful. Started with a workout session for moi (in advance of the forthcoming sugar), followed by the creative carving of 2 pumpkins, lunch and naps for the kids while I made a batch of pumpkin sugar cookies, then came the costume creating! I must say that our little cowboy and his fair maiden of a sister looked pretty darn cute! The husband shaved off his beard leaving a handle bar mustache behind. We used some eyeliner (it is good for something!) to create a matching one on the boy and they finished their outfits with plaid cowboy shirts, vests, hankies, cowboy hats and boots, and a toy gun and holster. It was perfect! Callah had the cutest little long red dress with white full length apron and a little bonnet. So cute! Then of course we did the rounds by car, showing off their cuteness to their Great Grandma and the other ladies at the seniors place, and some friends from church. My two cowboys did rounds before supper and then I took the boy out again for a bit after. He made quite a haul. Should keep him nice and hyper for a few months! Oh joy oh happy day....

Tomorrow at Mom's should be interesting. Dr. Dale Ardell will be there answering all sorts of health questions from us Mom's. Should be a good one. This Thursday is the Mom's Nite Out. Don't forget to line up a babysitter if you already signed up! 6 @ BP's. 8 @ Minto. See you all there!

I have a few blogs I look at from time to time. One of them is my pastors (his whole family, minus one kid, has blogs. They're quite interesting and comical. You can link to them here) and one of his last posts is a religion quiz. This is how I ranked.

You fit in with:

You ideals mostly resemble those of the Hindu faith. Spirituality is very important to you, and you value family, friends and life above other things. You have incredible faith, and will live a very worthwhile life.

80% spiritual.
60% faith-oriented.

I hope you had a good night and I'll be praying for you and your patience in the next few weeks as your kids complete their sugar highs. ;)
