Halloween Week!

This is one of our favorite holidays every year! I love the 'spooky' decorations and costumes. V got to dress up for dance class, trick-or-treat in the local mall, dress-up for preschool today and more to come before the weekend is over! It's so fun to see all the little kids dressed up to be their favorite characters looking so gosh darn adorable. The only thing that disappoints me a little is that they weren't allowed to be anything "scary" for dance or preschool. No witches, no ghosts, monsters, devils or other scary figures. I think that takes away from the spirit of Halloween. I just don't understand the guidelines I guess.

Another exciting event for this week happens tomorrow! We will HOPEFULLY be able to determine the gender of the baby with my sonogram. I'm really excited to find out! I want to start settling on a name and start shopping around for anything I might need before the baby arrives in 4 short months! I know that the time will fly and it will be time to push very soon. I will try to update tomorrow if we can tell!

Getting things back up and running.

Well so much has happened since I took my blog down! V is now 4 years old!! I can't believe it. She's in her second year of preschool and doing great. The second day of classes this year, her teacher pulled me aside to ask about things V knew already. She told me that she will have to find a way to keep V challenged specifically because she's pretty advanced for her age. We are expecting a baby brother or sister for her in March! She is begging for a baby brother, but we'll see what happens.

I'm expecting to have 2 giveaways in the next couple months for tickets to Toy Story 3 on Ice and Monster Jam, both in Cleveland. I'll post about those when I get the information. Hopefully I can get back into the swing of things around here. It might take me a little while to get things set up the way I want as far as layout, but I'm glad to be back!
