Busy October

Well, I have not blogged nearly enough this month! There has been so much going on and simply not enough time in the day to get everything done. Here is a quick breakdown of my October!

JD turned 6 yrs old on the 10th. I am highly upset about this because we AGREED last year that he wasn't going to have anymore birthdays thus he would stay 5 yrs old forever. I like 5 year olds, they are so likable and lovable and agreeable. Anywho, no since crying over spilled milk...he's 6 now.

YeeeeeHawwww Court Day! My most favorite event! I wait all year long for Court Day and I am proud to say that, despite my husband's distaste for this gigantic flea market, my children are following in my footsteps. I have nurtured a love for this annual festivity and Summer and JD had a blast this year. Poo poo on anyone who poo poos on Court Day..."that includes you Jeff"!

My husband turned 34, on the 24th, born in '74. I think "4" is his lucky number. We went out to eat on Friday, then on Sunday we went to see the movie "Fireproof". EXCELLENT MOVIE! And on that note, I would just like to say how very much I love my husband and how lucky I am to be his wife. I have got to be the most blessed woman in all the world to be married to Jeff DeBruler!

In closing I will give you a brief rundown of "others".

  • soccer season (Summer's sport) is over
  • football season (JD's sport) is over
  • Wednesday night Summit at Gateway has begun (Very fun!)
  • Summer started horseback riding lessons this month
  • basketball starts for JD in November,
  • both Colton and Sydney have had ear infections this month
  • Colton will start speech therapy in November
  • my college class is on going
  • as is piano for Summer
  • both Summer and JD got all A's on their report cards
  • the sermons at church this month have been awesome
  • and Trick or Treat is on Thursday

Our schedules are so busy this time of year but I wouldn't trade it for anything different! Hope you find as much joy in your day as I do in mine!

New Visitors and A Funny Video

Thank you so much for commenting on JD's fall story...please feel free to continue to send people to my blog to comment, he can continue to earn $ right up until Court Day. And stay posted because Summer is working on her story as well.

By the way, there were two *new* visitors to my blog for my previous post. Jesslee is a Kentucky who is living in Kansas, and JenIg is a woman in Tennessee who, in the bloggity world, is somewhat of a celebrity! She is a freelance writer for several christian and homeschooling magazines...and the main reason why I LOVE her blog is because she makes me laugh until I cry! Thank you ladies for visiting and leaving little JD a comment. I hope that my family and friends will visit their sites as well. Also, my Uncle Bradley left a comment which I was really excited about because he reads my blog faithfully, and even reminds me to post when I haven't written anything in a while. But he has never left a comment until now, thank you Uncle Bradley...I love you so much!

Moving on, I found this HILARIOUS video on another blog and just had to post it on mine. My mom and husband can attest to the fact that this is totally a day in my household!
