I woke this morning, too early... but the tink tink tink on my bedroom window woke me!! Freezing rain. Ugh. Yucko. But it had snow mixed in!! Snow, this early... so strange. I got the kids snowsuits out (which we have been graciously freecycled!)... but JA was too sick to go to school today :( Sore throat, fever, etc. *sigh* So I got Zachary into all his winter finery (ok, so his hat was really Sophia's! LOL) and got him off to school. It was wet snow. But this afternoon, JA was feeling some better (meds really work wonders!), and all three kids went out to play for half an hour. We still have a mountain of leaves to bag up... ick.

So I'm tracking the weather all the time now...watching for snow, temps, and wether Mike is done with riding for the year. Should be fun!!

Way to Go Julie-Anna!!

So we got a Sleep Cheap room for next Thursday night. We were happy to just have an indoor pool in November!! It was going to be a great surprise for the kids.

However, a local radio station EZ Rock has a Kids Korner contest every morning at 7:40. We have been trying for a long time to get a win on the contest... some I just don't even try for (like Hillary Duff concert tickets), but lots of the others we do! The month of November has them giving away Family Passes/overnight stay at Great Wolf Lodge! So she FINALLY got through on Tuesday morning. The question was "What is a pool rule?" She of course said "No running on the deck!!" So we won family time!! It starts with a pizza party put on by Pizza Hut Express, then waterpark passes for all of us... overnight accomodations, breakfast broadcast on Friday morning (It's a PA day!), and waterpark passes for Friday too! WHOO HOOO!! We are all super excited! WAY TO GO JA!!!

Sickness abounds

Ugh... now Mike and I have sore throats. It sucks rocks.

On another, way more positive note, I rejoinedCurves today!! I went for a free workout. I forgot how much I enjoyed it when I went! Now that the kids are older, no more nursing babies, etc... I have more time to go! I am super excited about it, AND I have friends who also joined, so we can work out together!!

So so tired

Poor Zachary has been sick for 3+ days now. He missed school today. He is sleeping well now though, so that is a total answer to prayer! It was a rough night on Saturday - so thankful for the time change, and the extra hour we got to 'sleep' sorta!! :D Hopefully the boy is ready to go back to school tomorrow. I know I am!! Thankfully, he's not a complainer, and his appetite has been pretty OK during this whole episode. I hate seeing my boy sick (or any kids sick!).

It's a murder, it's a mystery!

It's a murder mystery! Michael and I went out for a super fantastic evening on Friday. It was a Murder Mystery fundraiser for North End Co-Op PreSchoolwhere Sophia goes (and Z went last year). Wow, we had such a goooooood time!! The food was fantastic, the company at our table was fun, and the murder mystery company was excellent! We'll def. do that again I think!

I missed posting JA's birthday

So here are a few photos from her day!

I made this castle cake (thanks for the instructions Mahlah!) It took FIVE 8" square cakes. I used only 4. It was fun, but wow, that was a LOT of cake!

She got lots of great gifts - Polly Pocket Pets, a 20$ gift card from Wal Mart, game, books, a mermaid puzzle, a pack of gum, teddy bear, Bratz doll, and a few other things I cannot recall at this time! LOL!

We had a girly party. The girls all made blue glass bead necklaces, and we made the loot bags. We stamped the fronts and backs (made of cardstock), then stamped a crown and cut it out, then glittered it up! The girls had lots of fun. We served pizza, chocolate milk and of course, LOTS of cake! LOL! The girls each made their own 'circle' pizzas (english muffins!), and Mike kept them all straight so each kid got her own!

So, my baby is 7. Seven?! How did that happen!?! She's in grade two. She's growing up too fast!!

Hallowe'en with the Beaudry's!

Just a few photos of the kids, and our Jack-o-Lanterns. We had a great time trick or treating though!! Lots of good treats (even tho Zachary's can of Orange Crush got a hole in it, and now he's got the cleanest candy this side of the factory!).

JA was a fairy - wore her flower girl dress and pink wings, with glitter around her eyes. (She was already chilly when we left home, so had her coat on for the photo shoot!). Her hair was done up like Barbie in The Island Princess movie.

Zachary was Superman. Mike kept telling him to smile for the photo, and he kept yelling "I AM smiling Daddy!!!" Rolling Eyes at Mike for being so goofy! The mask didn't last long, as it was bugging his eyes, I think it was too close to his face! LOL!

Sophia was Cinderella, also adorned with glitter!

We also carved a couple of pumpkins. JA and Michael scooped them out (I still gotta roast the seeds, YUM!).

JA designed this one (I was telling someone it was a cyclops, and she corrected me "Mommy!! It's only got one eye, remember?!" LOL).

Zachary picked this design. Mike is getting better at his carving every year. A guy down the street is VERY good at it... so we might have a 'carve off' one day! LOL!

He can ride a TWO WHEELER!!

So Zachary learned to ride a two-wheeler this weekend. He's 4 1/2. Oh it was a chore this summer, he just REFUSED to even try!! So when I suggested it on Friday, Michael said "I am taking these training wheels off, and NOT putting them back on!" Well, Zachary just seemed to have ZERO balance. Michael thought he'd never get it. LOL Then he rode about 5 feet on his own before he realized nobody was holding his hood!! :D

So after lunch, he was eager to try again. WOW, he got on, and off he went!! It took a few days to get used to starting himself, but he's a pro now! It's awesome to ride to school to pick up JA, as he is quick as a bunny, and doing so well!

Here are a few photos of him riding, free and clear!
