Some Halloween Goodness...

I have not had a whole lot of time to blog lately. Will has been gone for about 24 days over the last month, which has left me lots of house/kid stuff to do. I even had to miss my Carolina Girls get together because of one of his trips. I was not a happy girl. BUT, he's home now and things are starting to slow down a bit so here I am.

We were blessed with a no school day this past Friday and of course it had to be pouring down rain the entire day, so the girls and I did some Halloween cookie baking for some rainy day fun. We had a blast. Check out some of our creations...

And we also have a new addition to our family. This is Shelby. She is a rescue dog...someone found her and her sister in the parking lot of a preschool and listed them on craigslist. If someone didn't take them before the end of the day, they were going to the pound...SO, Will sent me to go check her out and I cannot stand to see puppies or any animals in those little cages...the SPCA vet came out and looked at the puppies and determined a breed for me. She said that Shelby is a Ridgeback, and after looking up the breed online, I think she was dead on with her assessment. So far she is doing okay, but I think it's going to take her some time to adjust to being in a loving family. She is still very wary of us, but is awesome with the kids. She gives lots and lots of kisses.

Looking forward to some pumpkin carving tonight!!
