I feel so much better about my job now!!!! It's nice to be able to say that. I still struggle with finding my place some days, but now we have some things up and running that keep me pretty busy. I am doing a lot more technology-based stuff right now, and it's a lot of fun. Stretching and growing is never without its pains, but I wanted you to know that I really and truly appreciate your encouragement!
We've been busy around our house. Justin's had to work late a lot of nights. It seems like I have been going a million different directions too, but that's just life now I guess. We're trying to make sure we take days to breathe and enjoy Emerson each other where we are.
For Halloween, she was Jesse from Toy Story. We are currently Toy Story OBSESSED at our house. She is constantly calling for "cowboys" and yelling, "Yeehaw!" for no apparent reason.
She l-o-v-e-s this costume! Even after wearing it for days she still asked for it last night. I guess if you see a kid in a worn out Jesse costume in December, you'll know it's just us. :)
This is the first year in who knows how long I've actually dressed up for Halloween too. My school had Storybook Character Day. My principal (who is just AWESOME about doing crazy stuff for the kids) dressed up as Cruella DeVille, and we were her dalmatians. The kids got a kick out of it...especially my face paint with the tongue hanging out!
Other than that, life has been somewhat quiet. We've been all over the place, but we've also had some really great quiet time at home together. Saturday, when the cold weather finally hit, we didn't do much more than a grocery store trip and family movie night. It was perfection!
