Happy Halloween!!!!

Hello Blogger World!!! I am SO glad I finally figured out how to fix my blog template and now I can start posting again!

I absolutely love halloween. When I was younger Halloween was in 2nd place after Christmas of course. Still to this day it does not feel like Halloween if: I do not dress up, carve or decorate a pumpkin, eat candy, and watch the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown.

I love the Charlie Brown movies. There's a movie set that has Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. The Thanksgiving one isn't that great but Halloween and Christmas are the best!

Last night Ryan and I carved pumpkins. He did a spider and I did haunted houses. They look pretty cool! We cannot wait to pass out candy. Our first time together, and in our new house! We asked our neighbors and heard we'll have LOTS of kiddos/halloween traffic on our street. YAY!

I'm going to dress up as a pirate. (If you've read my blog before I posted a pic in the summer of me as a pirate for VBS... yeah I'm wearing that again. No need to spend money again when I have it in my own closet!) Ryan said he's going to be nothing. LAME. I almost went and bought him a wig or something to put on! I guarentee you that kids will ask what "he is".

Quote of the (last) week at school:

Boy: "Mrs. Corl what are you going to be for Halloween?"
Me: "A pirate...arggggg" (yes I did do that sound affect and arm motion)
Boy: "Oh really...well what you should really be is a WITCH TEACHER and slap kids on the head with rulers!"

I thought to myself... is this how kids perceive me?! Surely not! (I hope) but a witch teacher REALLY?!?! Sometimes I do feel like bopping them with rulers. ;)

Alrighty... I'll post our Halloween and pumpkin pics soon!

I'm back!!!

My Blog is going crazy on me!!!! The template was fixed and then I went to post and this mess happens again! HELP!!!!!!

School has consumed my life once again. We are almost through the entire 1st nine weeks....ALLELUIA! Hopefully 'things' will slow down. Exhausted is my middle name. I have a class of sweet kiddos, and slowly but surely our classroom 'groove' will be underway.

Moose is SO BIG! He went away to 'doggie camp''s called All Dogs Unleashed. AMAZING training program. I was totally skeptical about it, but it's been wonderful. It got to the point where we couldn't stop his unwanted behaviors and I couldnt' enjoy him cause he was either biting us, jumping on us or doing business in the house! ugh! He's doing great! Can't wait to post a picture of him. He's 35 lbs now and his coat has become kind of wavy.

My husband Ryan is wonderful. We've been married 4 months now and couldn't be happier. He's the cheese to my macaroni, or as he says....the avacado to my guacomole. Hehe he loves guac!

Glad to be back! Hopefully I can keep this up!
