Wow, I've been such a slacker lately, I'm sorry. We worked on our computer for a couple of days and for the past few the monitor has been our tv so I haven't felt like using the wireless keyboard and I haven't had time to sit down and type. Anyway, I have so much to blog about, Zoe had her 2nd birthday, it was a lot of fun! I love her so much, our family wouldn't be the same without her, she is such a cutie!! I do have some pictures, I'll post some hopefully soon. So I set up my doctor appointment today, I'll go in for blood work and the insurance talk on November 3rd and then I'll actually see my doctor on the 6th. It's crazy that they're that far out! I went to Baby Your Baby and got on that, and now I am in the process of applying for Medicaid. I hate getting stuff like this, but it helps SOO much! I guess if we qualify why not, right?

So I'm finishing this post finally, it's a few days later but better late than never right? So our computer isn't working, it won't turn on so I am using our laptop (thank Heaven we didn't give it away) we erased everything on it and it works so much better now. It's nice to have a back up, hopefully PC laptops can fix it, if not, we're in trouble. So anyway, life is going ok I guess, we're hanging in there. This month has been a hard one, I've had really great ups but really bad lows. Do you ever just want someone to talk to who won't say anything back but the occasional ya uh-huh or nod of the head? Someone who will focus on JUST you for maybe five or ten minutes? Lately I feel really alone in that arena, it's great that I have Randy who listens to me, but being a guy he wants to fix it when I just want someone to listen. I know I used to be the kind that just talked and talked about myself (Heather can attest to this), but I've really tried to be better about that and listen to others and be there for them. I feel like I've really improved in this area (I could be wrong, but I'm hoping I'm not), but every once in a while, it would be really nice to be the one focused on and venting frustrations. Perhaps the answer I'm looking for is as simple as prayer, maybe I just need to learn to pray with ALL my heart and learn to meditate and feel His spirit. Maybe then I'll receive the spiritual nods, uh-huh's and yups I'm seeking. How come the simplest answers always seem to be the hardest things to do? Oh well.

So, on a more positive note, this week is Red Ribbon Week at Hailey's school, they have a few fun activities going on, like tomorrow! It's crazy hair and sock day and CAN"T wait!! I am going to do Hailey's hair crazy and let her borrow some of my toe socks, I'm going to put them on over her pants. I think it will be so much fun! Then on Friday it's their Halloween party and I volunteered to help, I'm excited to be able to be there for that. They also have a parade at 10 that morning, how fun! Then of course Halloween is on Saturday, and it will be fun to take the girls around to get some treats (parents are allowed to share right?) I'm way excited to see them all dressed up. Hailey and Katie are going to be ghosts and Zoe will be the Lion, the same one that the other two girls have been. My sweet mom sewed Hailey and Katie's costumes, she was here until 3:40 the other morning sewing, and then she had to come back the next day to finish. I love that woman!! Wow, this post is really long, if you made it to the end of this post you're a real trooper! I'm sure I'll have more later, and hopefully I'll be able to post pictures soon! Until next time, talk to you later!!

I am absolutely LOVING this weather right now! It's fun to be able to wear scarves and hats and not be so blasted hot!! I walked to go get Hailey today ( I got to go by myself which was nice too) and it was such a nice walk! Yesterday I was a little down and stressed out and I decided I wanted to change my attitude so I bundled up the girls and we went outside for some excercise. We raced up and down our parking lot, it was really nice to get out and spend some real time with them. I think they all enjoyed it, after a few minutes Eva and Virginia (our neighbor and her little girl) joined us as well. We all had a lot of fun!

So I made a couple of suggestions to Hailey for her Halloween costume and I think she wants to be a Ghost now, which makes me happy because that won't be too hard to make and it won't cost very much. I haven't talked to Katie yet, and I think I'll either have Zoe be a Lion (the same costume the other two have worn for a few years) or an M&M, I'm not sure yet. I am not a huge fan of Halloween, I don't mind it, but I don't get extremely excited for it. It just seems to cost a lot of money. Oh well, then Christmas is right around the corner, now that's a scary thought!! I can't believe we're almost to the end of another year, it's crazy!! Another thing that's crazy, my baby is going to be 2!!! Zoe's birthday is next Monday the 12th, I can't believe it's already been two years!! It seems to have gone by so fast! She has been so much fun to have around, I love them all so much, I can't imagine what life would be like without them. Ok, so I could...quiet! It wouldn't be near as much fun though! I am very excited for the future though, I'm really excited to see how these next 90 days play out, Randy's made some goals that I'm excited to see him meet, I love watching him change and grow and become a better man (I wouldn't have thought it possible, but believe me, it just keeps getting better!!) I love him so much, there are some days I don't know why he ever picked me, I'm just grateful he did!! Well, this has been sappy enough so I guess I'll end it, but I thought I'd share some pictures of the girls all bundled up to go outside because they look SO stinkin' cute!! Enjoy, I have one of Hailey that I was going to post, but for some reason it didn't transfer over from our camera and now the battery is dead. So, I will add her picture later! For now enjoy these.

Katie wanted to wear the ski mask, except that she said they were to go under water.

Here she is with her Santa hat on, and my scarf.
Cute little Zoe!! I love this kid so much!!

Ok, so I've been promising pictures for awhile now and haven't gotten around to it so now I am. These are just a few that I thought I'd share, including pictures of Hailey's first day of school.

Katie bein cute!!

My neighbor made this skirt for Zoe, it is so cute!!

Hailey and Katie got themselves dressed so I decided to put Zoe in a dress too

They love spinning in this chair
Hailey's first day of school, she was so stinking cute!! I gave her a necklace to wear so that if she got scared she would have something of mine. I doubt she needed it, but it was a nice thought right?
