Happy Birthday Doba!

Stu works for Doba and every year they have a "Doba Spirit Day" where everyone dresses up and other crazy stuff. This is the third "Spirit Day" and it gets better each time!

Here is Little Man as "The Incredible Hulk" according to him, but "Doba Dot Boy" according to many others at work ;)(the "O" in Doba is green, that is why everyone goes overboard with green!)

Here is one of the "activities" the Engineering group came up with....

And here is the back of Stu's head, pretty clever eh? ;)

I did it! I finally broke 30 minutes running 3 miles! I've wanted to for so long but haven't quite had it in me. I felt like I was going to puke when I was done, lol. But I survived and I'm so happy :)

Halloween or Christmas?

I've always said that Halloween is my favorite holiday but somehow Christmas has topped the list. Don't get me wrong, Christmas is much more important than Halloween, but halloween was just more fun to celebrate.

I still love seeing all the costumes and decorations. I love my 4 year olds imagination and listening to him tell everyone what his costume is going to be. He came up with it himself and is very proud of that. He wants to be a monster fire fighter, he'll wear his firefighter costume but I'll paint his face green and turn his eyebrows brown, lol.

I come from a pretty big family, there are 7 siblings and now there are 10 grandkids to add to the mix. We do a gift exchange where we pick names out of a hat and buy for that person. About 4 years ago we were in a very tight financial situation, I had no idea how I would be able to provide any gifts at all that year. We were given many gifts and support from friends and family, showing me the true meaning of Christmas. That year I made all the gifts for the exchange and had a great time doing so.

Every year since I have tried to come up with creative gifts, some years it was food and I was surprised at how well some fruit snacks and cookies went over ;). This year I'm going to make everything again and got most of the supplies yesterday. I'm just giddy thinking about making all this stuff and knowing how well it will be recieved because it is personalized and comes from the heart.

Maybe if I put as much effort into costumes, Halloween would be a fave once again ;)

So, for now...I'm thinking of you and hope to comment soon. Kelly is adorable as always.
Jane its good to hear from you again. And I hope little Howie is doing much better today, poor guy.

I got 100% on my last math test, woohoo!! I guess sitting next to Mr.Pee (he smelled so strong of urine, it burned my lungs!) for the test was good luck ;)
