Can't Sleep

Well, we are moving tomorrow, and I just cannot go to sleep. I was sleeping perfectly sound when I had to wake up and feed my baby around 1:00 AM and now I can not go back to sleep. I just keep thinking about all the things I need to do. We are not moving far, actually just down the street. I am so glad that we get to stay in Mountainaire. I love the community out here. I have truly made some great friends. We are really excited to be selling our house. The rental house we are moving into is a cute little 700 Sq foot cabin: 2 beds, one bath, and the washer and dryer are right in the middle of the kitchen. No joke, they actually block access to some of the cabinets, but I am so excited. I love keeping things simple. We have thoroughly de-junked! I can't wait to spend Christmas in our cozy little house together. Also, I am excited not to be home owner for a little while. I could do with out the responsibility right now. It's nice to know that if something breaks, some one else has to fix it instead of me. Anyway, in leau of Thanksgiving I want to say that I am so blessed. When it comes to the things that really matter in life, I couldn't ask for more. I am so grateful to have a wonderful husband who supports me in everything I do, and three strapping young boys who are so healthy and fun. Most of all I am grateful to know that Jesus Christ lives, and that I am a daughter of my Heavenly Father. What more could I ask for?

I'm Popeye the Sailor Man!

Cash was Swea' Pea, the orphan that got dropped on Popeye's porch

Paul was Wimpy, Popeye's best friend (I'll pay you tomorrow for a hamburger today)

Gus was the man himself: Popeye

Max was the villainous Bluto, always trying to get the girl

and here we all are at the trunk or treat. I never got a picture of Olive Oil by herself. It was very nice of her to come along. I must say, she was much more stunning in person.
So here is the end result of our Halloween Costumes for this year. We were the clan from Popeye which worked out great because what other theme costume can you think of with all boys and only one girl (The only other one I could think of was the smurfs...maybe next year). Anyway, we had a tootin good time trunk-or-treating on Friday night, and then trick-or-treating around the neighborhood on Saturday. Halloween is such a fun holiday. What a blast! Now if I could only stop eating the Halloween candy.
