A Skunk and a Monkey Knocked On a Door...

After having the BSOD- "blue screen of death"- appear on my computer a few weeks ago, I now have a computer ready to blog away. I feel like I haven't been on here in forever! So much has happened. Halloween, birthdays, Christmas music playing in Wal-Mart-- time passes too fast! I did learn one thing from the whole blue-screen incident: back up, back up, back up!

Halloween was really fun. I got Landon and Braden costumes from Old Navy, so they were the cutest little monkey and skunk at the church's Halloween Hoedown. Would you answer the door if a skunk rang your doorbell and yelled "Trick or Treat!"? Braden loved his costume so much, he wanted to wear it all the time. I walked into Mom and Dad's one day and found him wearing it while he was watching cartoons! It did have a little cuteness factor to it!

Landon officially turned two, and got to see his grandmother- Melanie's mom came into town for a few days. It was nice for all of us to get to spend some time with her. I got him a Nick, Jr. video that has several different shows on it. You have to hear him say "Blue's Clues"; it's so cute!

I've been helping Pastor Tony out with some photography. He recruited me into taking family pictures and creating a photo directory for the church. It's right up my alley and something I have really been enjoying working on. I wish I could hurry up and get people to get their pictures made!

We've been really busy at school working on our Christmas programs. Yes, plural. Cilla, the band director, and I are going to do some joint concerts. Not only will this get more people in the seats, but we now are at over an hour worth of music. I'm really excited and the kids are getting that way too. Hopefully I'll be able to post some fun clips from the concert. Who knew how quickly Christmas was coming? Can you believe Thanksgiving is next week? Crazy, huh?
