Random pictures from our week...

Elijah needs a haircut...sideburns are not optional when you are 11.

We need a better picture but the message is clear...when Will is away, the friends still want to play.

Did I mention the fire dancer already?

Soccer has consumed us once again...

Michaela hikes the "Y" and apparently defies gravity...

How was your week?

First I will whine, then I will rejoice!

I woke up 2 weeks ago with the sensation of fluid in my ears-like after you go swimming and you tilt and shake your head and you feel the water drain? Well I kept tilting and shaking and nothing.
So yesterday I went to the doctor and got a prescription to help my malfunctioning ear drain...
The pharmacist mentioned that sleepiness would be a side, I took it last night at 10:30 p.m. thinking I would sleep through the sleepiness. It is now 8:22 p.m. -almost 24 hours later and I still feel like I am moving through peanut butter. I will not be taking another one of those. I am tired enough on my normal days...back to square one though with the ear.

Like October needs more excitement than changing leaves and Halloween...
Here are two more things to make you happy:

1. David Archuleta releases his Christmas CD on October 13th. Mr. Archuleta was born to sing Christmas music and I am ALWAYS looking for an excuse to start my Christmas music early.

2. October is actually National Chocolate Chip Cookie month!!! Can you believe it? A whole month dedicated to the awareness of my favorite past time! Can you even imagine the ways that I will be celebrating?

Pearly Shells...

Friday night we went to a Luau, a fundraiser at Grandma Singer's retirement center. If you closed your eyes and just listened to the music you could actually transport...eyes open...not so much. But it was alot of fun and the food was good. Grandma could hardly stay awake, and the kids ate their candy lei's before dinner was served.
The highlights of the evening were the fire dancer and the raffle- from which we won a big movie night basket...Aloha !!! What it really did was make us homesick...wish we were back on the beach. Michael summed it up when he said "once you've been to the real thing- these wannabe's just don't cut it". But do I sound negative? We had a great time hanging out with Judie and Great Grandma. Happy days!
