Halloween 2008

We had a fun Halloween. We started off with pumpkin carving after school in the backyard. Next, one of our dear neighbors, Allison and her hubby Grant were kind enough to provide Little Ceasar's for our neighborhood commonly referred to by Allison as "The Brooke". So around 5:30 we headed over to Pebble Ct. and socialized with our neighbors before heading out for a fun night of trick or treating.

Big Orange Pumpkin Farm

The kids, Mason and I headed to the pumpkin patch today. The kids were out of school for parent-teacher conferences. It was perfect weather for the pumpkin patch, it was 55 and windy and I LOVED IT! We took a hayride, fed the animals and picked pumpkins. Some shots from our day:

We're back...

Just back from our first cruise on the Carnival Ecstasy. It was so much fun. We stopped at Progresso first and did some shopping and hung out at the bar. We had some great margarita's and a shot of Mexican Kool-Aid, don't know what was in it but it was yummy. Our second stop was Cozymel and we did some snorkeling at Playa de Corona.

The ship was a lot of fun too. Keith played in a couple Hold 'Em Tournaments, we saw some shows and hung out by the pool on the Lido deck.

We had a blast and would like to take the kids on a cruise in June.

Thursday Thoughts...

I snagged this picture off my sisters blog to show the kids on the paddle boats at Town Lake. They had fun at Gavin's birthday party.

Went to Zin Zen in Adriatica and had a fun sister lunch with Kim, Amy, Kristin and even their mom joined the fun. I even tried humus for the first time and actually liked it...

11 days until we go on our anniversary cruise. I cannot wait.

Kim was able to drag me to the YMCA for a spin class today. I actually liked it. I signed up for the Turkey Trot early and received a complimentary 25 visit membership. I like free stuff.

Hope everyone is doing well! Write more soon.....
