The Great List {11.02.12}

Friday has arrived!  It means the end of the work week for most, but to me it means it's time to reflect on the great stuff that happened this week.   

1.  Halloween was a blast!  A two-year-old can be touch-and-go when it comes to their mood, but both Leila and Charlie had a successful night of trick-or-treating.  Leila could care less about the candy (this year) and was more focused on all the costumes, decorations, and crowds of people instead.

2.  Leila has started turning treating items as babies.  This is good, of course, since in about 4 months she will be a big sister and EVERYTHING will be baby for a while.  She carried my new hairbrush out of the store as a baby and then above you can see she is treating her Mickey Mouse pumpkin wand like a baby.

3.  Jeff's been working a lot of late days and even on Saturdays some weeks.  To combat the monotony of our extended time together, Leila and I joined the play gym, Gymboree.  We got a great deal for the month and will follow it up with the free month I won in a raffle.  It will be our special Mommy and Leila time each week!

4.  I am back to meal planning for two weeks now!  After my parents left it was difficult to get back into the swing of things.  I relied on them for dinner for two weeks, a great break, but it got me out of the habit.  I am learning the best method for me and will be sharing recipes as I try them.  

“Let us rise up and be thankful, for if we didn’t learn a lot today, at least we learned a little, and if we didn’t learn a little, at least we didn’t get sick, and if we got sick, at least we didn’t die; so, let us all be thankful."   — Buddha


Come back here each week for my newest list and don't forget to check out Betsy's list each week too.  Warning...positive thinking is addicting!
