Kalli & Dylan got their flu shots on Friday. Dylan was surprisingly brave & wanted to be the first to be shot. He's getting to be such a tough guy. I got to questioning a 2:00 appointment though after thinking about Kalli's game at 5:30 but it all worked out fine & her arm didn't bother her at all. She had her game face on because she had a whole clan of fans. Mom, Jess & Larry were there. Tiffany & the twins were there. Dad & Marsha was there. Plus then Dylan, Jerry, & me. That girl played her heart out. She stole the ball several times & worked the ball all the way down the court a few times. I was just so proud of her & the whole team. They really did their thing & worked together & pulled out 16 to 2! Great game! I just don't know how I'll be able to handle these when she gets older. I'm already on my toes hollering. She's really gonna love that when she's older.

Kalli & I got into the Halloween spirit too and had to do our nails. Candy corn style! Didn't quite turn out as cute as I'd imagined but still cute nonetheless.

It's over...

The insurance paperwork from the fire is finally finished. No more keeping track of all receipts and putting them into the spreadsheet. No more worrying about getting them all in. I didn't get them all in but it's done. It's over. No more insurance! Hooray!

Not much else going on. On Friday I'm taking a much needed vacation day & going to Applegate with Tiffany. I canNOT wait! So many cute things to look at. :) Then this weekend is also the Scraplove fall crop so that will be fun too! Lots of talented girls showing lots of cool techniques & ideas! Come check it out if you get a chance!

And just because I can't leave a post without a picture - here's my super cool girl Kalli:

Why do weekends seem so short?

I never quite understand this. You work all week & then have 2 short days off to try to go out and do something or just relax. Usually what I have planned for the weekend and what actually happens is two entirely different things.

Our weekend started out at Kalli's basketball game on Friday evening. She was playing some of her old softball teammates so she was really hyped up about playing. I am telling you - she was drilling those girls! Kalli was on them & really got them shook up. She even made a basket too so that was pretty exciting.

This weekend was the Ozark Craft Fair. I absolutely love craft fairs but I really hate having to drag my kids through those places especially when they aren't wanting to be there. So instead - we trod off to Pumpkin Daze in Republic. Oh my, apparently everyone headed over around the same time because it was PACKED. Like body to body, you could hardly walk. So we worked our way through the crowd. The kids had a blast getting to paint mini pumpkins, jump in the giant tiger, & get their faces painted. Only thing was we totally forgot about our plans for caramel apples so as soon as we got home, we had to make us some!

Here's some pics from Pumpkin Daze:

Then today was nothing more than a lazy day for the most part. When I say lazy though it's not really lazy. I did like 4 loads of laundry, 1 load of dishes, took a walk with the kids & went to the park, AND went to work for almost 2 hrs to try to get some stuff done. Oh yeah & then afterwards I practiced basketball with Kalli. Wheww! Maybe Monday isn't sounding so bad after all. :)

And one last thing just because I'm in love with the photo & cannot get the song out of my head now - here's my layout for the All About Eve challenge. The challenge was to a layout about music/your favorite song/etc. I love "My Little Girl" by Tim McGraw so I had to use it for my layout.
