Ready for the end of October!

My two little Leopard Kittys

We've had such a busy weekend and I think we may all be burned out on candy. Shocking isn't it? This entire month has been non-stop but this weekend tops it. I think we're on event #6 as I write this blog and every single event has been a candy free-for-all. I am looking forward to staying home tonight and passing out candy with the girls. We may all be in a sugar coma by tomorrow. Say a prayer. ;)

Our new little Daisy Scout

On my honor I will try,

to help people at all times,
and to live by the Girl Scout law.

This week Sarah became and official Daisy Scout. There are 7 other girls in her troop and they all go to our school. We have fantastic troop leaders so we are looking forward to a very exciting year as a Daisy Scout.

I will do my best to be honest and fair,
friendly and helpful,
considerate and caring,
courageous and strong,
and responsible for what I say and do,
and to respect myself and others,
respect authority,
use resources wisely,
make the world a better place,
and to be a sister to every Girl Scout

Blue no more

Here is a picture of the house before painting. Blue, blue, blue. Happily we are blue no more and we are so pleased with how everything turned out.

We had the nicest group of painters. They actually were not supossed to come until the following week (or so we thought) but I got a call that they were coming to test a couple of paint colors and an hour later they were starting the project. It's hard to tell by these pictures but we went with a cream color accented with an off white trim and black shutters. It only took them a couple of days and we are very happy with the end result. I've had several neighbors comment on how much better the house looks now and I couldn't aggree more. Next project, landscaping.

P.S. It's SO nice to be able to say we have projects to work on....finally!
