I Love Halloween

We pulled out our scary skeleton and put him on the door today and he was losing some body parts. I re-attached one hand, and 2 legs with fishing line. Isaac was totally into it, mostly because he got to use the scissors. So this evening I was at Bi-lo, returning a movie (Year One, which was awesome by the way), and they had their pumpkins on sale. There is my way-cool pumpkin, isn't he scary and awesome? Can't wait to show him to Isaac tomorrow. I think I will always love Halloween. I don't have too many warm and fuzzy memories with both of my parents together, but we definitely always had a blast on Halloween. My parents always took us trick or treating and my dad was an awesome face-painter / costume designer. He would give us a HUGE trash bag to put all of our candy in, but then send us up to the houses with tiny little empty bags to trick-or treat in, so the people at the doors would feel sorry for us and think we had hardly any candy. We would make our little sad urchin faces and get tons of sympathy candy and dump our tiny bags into the giant trash bag when we got back to the car. Yup I am TOTALLY passing that tradition on. :-) Trick or Treat!!

Another Reason I Love Him

So it is Saturday. Jason is working a half-day, from 9:30 till 1:30. He gets up with the kids, lets me sleep in then gets ready for work after I get up. About 10 minutes after he leaves I hear him pull back in and wonder what he forgot. He brought me breakfast from Dunkin Donuts. What a great Dad and awesome husband he is!

Going out on his own

Wow, so last Friday Jason had the grand-opening of his Allstate agency. I am so proud of him and all of his hard work. It has been so rewarding watching his dream come to fruition. We have been preparing for this for about 6 months. From August to September he was gone for 5 weeks (weekdays only-thank God) training in Atlanta and Chicago. We did some painting in the office and re-arranging things to make it our own before his opening. I am going to attempt to post some pictures. We think it looks pretty awesome. Some of my Dad's pottery is there on display.

I know the next few months will be intense and laden with hours and hours of work for Jason. I also know that he will find it rewarding to see his own business grow and flourish. We are so grateful for this opportunity!
