Soccer Updates and Other Things

Well, first off, Happy Veteran's Day! My hubby served in Desert Storm, so I thank him for his service. Thank you to everyone who is currently serving or who has served at some point - your selflessness is more appreciated than you will ever know.
Things are still just as crazy as ever around here. I don't think work is ever going to slow down, and with the economy like it is, I should not complain. I love my job...I love my job...I love my job!
Halloween was a lot of fun...the kids picked out their costumes. D was a cowboy, B was a Clone Trooper, and A decided she had to be "Batman Girl" rather than the black cat she originally wanted to be...Boy, she is quite the tomboy! (Please don't laugh too hard at the photos! :) The guy that blends in with the fire place is D's best friend.

Filly is now back at my parents' house...and already rubbing her tail. UGH! I think she is bored and has too many places to rub. It may be time to make her a paddock out of electric tape...I know that sounds awful, but anything to keep her from self mutilation! It is too cold for bugs now, so that is no excuse.

The puppies are still doing great. The little boy, Max, is lined up to get "tutored" soon; right around Thanksgiving. Then the girls will get "fixed" in December. They are so fun to be around. They especially love to play in the leaves...it is so funny to hear 12 little feet running through the dry leaves. It makes a great spook excuse for the horses.

And great news - D played in the District Tournament last Saturday. After a really long, grueling day, and two incredibly difficult games, D and his team are headed to State Finals! They won the U-14 division! Those kids played their hearts out. He plays on a co-ed team, and let me tell you, those girls are TOUGH.

Below is D's All Star Team. Notice the blue hair...you should have seen the kids with the green jerseys! They looked like martians with their green hair!

This is the next up and coming soccer player - she can't wait to turn 4 so she can play on a team!

D with his hard earned championship soccer trophy.

So, a lot going on here - hey I saw that our gas prices are down to $1.99 a gallon!!!!! I haven't seen prices like that since I was in high school! Sure would be nice if they would stay down, but I seriously doubt it. I shall enjoy it while it lasts though...maybe make a few extra trips out to my folks place to play with the horses and puppies!

Hope all is well with you guys.
