Happy Halloween

We decided to partner up with the Patterson's this year. We had a blast sitting out in the yard all dressed up handing out candy. We had a fog machine, music, cobwebs, pumpkins, skeletons and LOTS of candy. I think we will always be known as the Snow White house now! I even got my picture taken several times :) Hope you all had a fun, safe Halloween!!

We Voted, Have YOU????

WOW! Charley and I went to early vote tonight since he is on shift Tuesday. We did not expect such a long line. We had to wait for over 30 minutes. All in all, two votes are accounted for! I hope that you chose to do your citizenly duty and get out and VOTE! Hopefully you will have shorter lines.

Oh, and we had the best dinner. A new restaurant in Garland, Horacio's. It is run by former cooks from our old fav, Dos Banderas. We highly recommend it!!

A New Adventure

Friday one of my nails broke, so I had to get them fixed over the weekend. I decided to go for a little change....short black nails. I'm loving it! I even got my toes painted. It was so nice to have my feet rubbed after a long week. I just love mani's and pedis!

My little blogging helper

As I worked on my weekend blog, I had a little helper, such a sweet boy....
That back leg cracks me up, its straight in the air. He laid just like this for about an hour. Ahh the life of Max!

One BIG happy family

Friday started out at the farm on a field trip, whew I was zapped by the end of the day. Then, off to Houston! I got there pretty late, and I had a sweet Sydney and the 2 kitties waiting for me to snuggle. I can't believe she's 10!!!

Saturday we woke up bright and early to her volleyball game. I was so impressed how well she played. We just relaxed and enjoyed a beautiful day. That afternoon me and one of my aunts and cousins went to the mall for a little shopping. There are so many sales going right now. Later that evening we had a HUGE cookout. My brother grilled and we had so much yummy food. I enjoyed a perfect family night with 1 mom, 2 brothers, 2 sister-in-laws, 1 niece, 2 aunts, 4 cousins, and 2 second cousins. We laughed til I cried and shared some sweet memories. I love you all so, so, so very much!!!

Although I enjoyed my weekend, I loved walking through the door and seeing my wonderful husband. We watched a little football and relaxed the rest of the evening. What a great weekend!

My Sweet Friends

I got to spend an evening with my dear, sweet friends the Brawners. Our hubbies were on shift today, so off we went to Skye's soccer game and then dinner at Pancho and Lefty's. Here's some cute pic's from the game...

I'm baaaaaaack

I survived! It's amazing how things stay the same, the world just keeps on moving whether you do or not. Now, I have officially joined it again. My first day back was Wednesday, but my substitute was with me all day. I pretty much observed them and learned the schedule and routine. Thursday and Friday was me "a-la-carte". Overall, it was as expected, 17 chatty, excited little Kindergartners and one tired, worn out teacher. I can't begin to tell you the support system I have at Hartman. Sooooo many of my friends gave me hugs and encouragement all week. it was good to be "home" again. This weekend involves rest, relaxing and football! Thank you all for your love, thoughts and prayers. So a new, fresh start has begun and so far so good!!!

A New Beginning

I got a call from the doctor Monday morning giving me a clean bill of health! Yes, that's right, all levels are normal and I am back to myself. You can't begin to understand what that means to us. It's been a roller coaster the past two months. So, for all the prayer warriors out there, it is time to praise our Lord and give Him thanks!

So, normally the first day of school is in August, but for me this year it's October. I go back on Wednesday. I'm very excited to meet my class and get back to the "normal" routine. Although, I will dearly miss my Price is Right, it's just not the same when you DVR it and watch at night.

Send lots of thoughts and prayers, I'll post again on Wednesday night to let you know how the day went.

Not too much going on...

I haven't really had much to blog about lately. Other that lots of football, it's been a pretty quiet Scamperino house. We have just been hanging out around the house, Charley's been working a lot at the station and ER, Max has been snoozing, I'm still working on healing, you know same 'ol things. Last night we had a great evening at the Bass Hall in Fort Worth. It was a concert with no other that THE Monte Montogomery. Good times. I'm back to work at some point next week, so I'll need lots of prayers. Blessings to all!

Look how they've grown!
I mean, how can you sleep like this??
