Halloween fun...

I love that I'm trying to add more photos to my blog. When I set out with the intention of starting a blog many moons ago, I knew I wanted to create a journal of our homeschooling and general family stuff for our family that was spread out, so they could keep up with everything. I can't tell you how many blogs I have started and let fall by the wayside over the years. I have done alright with keeping up with this one, but I always forget or make excuses for not having time to add more photos. I have been really trying recently, and I'm proud of the effort. Yay me. :D

Last night was our annual Halloween party. Tracy and her family throw this every year, and it's always so much fun!

While the boys always do costumes, the hubs and I don't. This year, we wanted to do something together, but not too involved. We found these masks, giant glasses and wigs and thought it was fun!
During a massive de-cluttering, Scott found his old 3DO (?) gaming system and decided to set it up on a big TV outside. There was nothing, not even obstructed views by costumes, that prevented *everyone* from joining in a Samurai Showdown battle at some point in the evening... 
We always love gathering with this group of people, and last night was no different. We had a blast, adults and kiddos alike!

This week will hopefully go well. I am having some dental work done tomorrow that will keep me out of commission for at least tomorrow, maybe a couple of days...but the boys are excited about playing some vocabulary and spelling games with a couple of special Halloween word lists, so that should fill up any down time during the beginning of the week.

Other than that, Braeden has a new Beast Quest book to read and Bailey is continuing on with his 3rd book in a Raymond Feist series he's working through. They are also working out of some Usborne books for Science and World History, which is new and different, and they are enjoying that.

For now, I'm going to finish some work I need to finish, then I'm going to spend the rest of the day trying to mentally prepare myself for tomorrow. Dentists and I...we don't play well together, so I'm a little anxious. And by a little anxious, I certainly don't mean full blown panic attacks. Not at all. Noooope. Not what I meant.


Have a great week, and don't forget next weekend marks the end of Daylight Saving Time, so we get to set our clocks back! I always love that extra hour! :D
