We had a really nice weekend. We made great time on the drive to my Mom's, 7 hours exactly. The way back was another story, more like 8.5 hours, but even so ... it was a good trip. On Thursday we went to the movies and saw Enchanted. It was very cute. And we went to the small movie theater near my Mom's & it was only $2.50 per person! Isn't that amazing? The three of us got in for the price of one at any other theater. Then we did some work on my Grandma's scrapbook. Friday I had dinner & a drink with one of my best friends. We don't see each other often but after the quick run down of what is going on we pick up right where we left off. It's always great to get together with her. Then Saturday we had a family thing at my cousins house. It was our Thanksgiving dinner. Everything was delicious. It was great to see everyone & Peanut had lots of fun with the cousins. We showed Grandma the progress on the book ... and then we told her to give it back so we can work on it some more. Maybe we'll have it done for Christmas. We worked on it some more Saturday evening. It's coming together quite nicely. It was cold in OK ... the one thing I don't miss! That left us both with sore throats and runny noses. Aside from that the trip couldn't have been better. Now back to our everyday life.

It's Tuesday, so Peanut & went to Chick-fil-A for their Family Night. She decorated this cute little turkey cookie.
We are getting ready for a trip to visit my Mom and family & friends in that area. I've got tons of laundry to get to and our packing to be done. Yuck! What's really bad is I have to break out the sweaters & stuff as a cold front is coming to town when we get there.
I'm pretty excited to get to see everyone, but there will have to be good planning to get everything accomplished. The number one priority will be for my Mom & I to finish Grandma's scrapbook we "gave her" for her birthday. What's funny is, I think the only part of the book to be finished are the pages about our family. We got all the other aunts, uncles & cousins pages taken care of & ran out of time & ideas for ours. So, several months later hopefully we'll be ready to take care of business. We both really love to scrap so that will be fun ... but it is time consuming. Then of course, there's the visiting. We'll have lots of visiting to do. It'd be fun to squeeze in some shopping & maybe that new Disney movie, Enchanted (Peanut has told me several times it release date; 11/21).
Okay, well, I just thought I'd take a minute & give today's scoop ... now we've got to tackle that laundry! We?!? HA! I'm sooo funny.

So, I'm a little slow (by now you know this!) but here we are in our Halloween costumes. Hannah Montana and Jentar the Fortune Teller. I made my costume like a madwoman the night before Halloween ... for some reason my best ideas come at crunch time. I made a quick trip to Hobby Lobby for some fabric & paint, used a box I got from work and several hours later I was pretty pleased with the result. Hope everyone had a fun Halloween.
