Why is it, that as Women we feel the need to make sure that our houses are superclean if anyone is coming to visit? Is it really a determination of who you are? I've been going a little crazy today trying to clean and keep Ella from dragging stuff all over the house. The playgroup that I belong is doing a cookie exchange tonight and it's here at my house. Everyone knows that I have two small children and that it really is next to impossible to keep my house clean. That's house is "clean". Not that I would eat off my floor but it's respectable.

My house is cluttered. It's amazing to think that I have 2500 square feet of house and I can't seem to find a home for all our stuff! Papers, pens, sunglasses, tape, monopoly pieces, camera cords, paper, toys...stuff!! Where does all this stuff come from? I think a little man comes in at night and multiplies everything.

Stop stressing Paula and enjoy yourself tonight......

Halloween Night

Reaching for candy

Anna "talking" to Aunt Chris

It was a beautiful night for Halloween! 70 degrees, a Friday night. Expected a huge turnout for candy....I think we had maybe 30 kids! There were only a few houses on our street with their lights on. So needless to say, I have a TON of candy left. I'm pulling out all the suckers for Ella, the tootsie rolls I'm taking to my sister Jen!
Tonight Mike and I are headed out to some Adult Halloween parties. I'll post those pics tomorrow....Could be a late night!

Thanks Sarah for the template idea......Cute stuff!!!

It's a strange day in the house. Ella is STILL napping...she's been asleep for almost 3 hours! I should be taking advantage of that and doing the laundry that is sitting all over the kitchen, or putting away the laundry that has made it to the washer and dryer. Or I should be cleaning my bedroom or any of the million and one things I need to do.

But I'm not! I took a little nap, read a magazine, played with my blog and now, I'm blogging. It's kinda nice to be a slacker once in awhile and do nothing!

I love this time of year. I love the crock pot...You know how it is. For whatever reason, most people don't use their crock pot enough during the summer. When Fall hits, I pull it out, dust if off and start cooking. I love throwing things in there in the morning and letting the smell drift through the house all day. By evening, there is no panic to get dinner on the table. Tonight is roast, carrots and potatoes. Thursday I'm making a chicken, Swiss cheese, tomato thing...I'll let you know how it turns out!

My daughter is driving me nuts! 2 year olds are a royal pain in the butt.....I had to sit and feed her lunch today because she refused to eat. I know she was hungry, just being stubborn. This is what happened when I turned her loose with peanut butter and jelly sandwich!!

Anna is getting so big! Went to the dr Monday and she is 13bls and 23.5 inches long. 95% all around. I can't beleive that she is getting so big, so fast.
