Where DID this week go???

It's Friday...how the HECK did that happen?

I've had a busy, emotional, crazy week. I said my final farewell to my dear friend, Walter, on Wednesday. His funeral service was absolutely perfect...so, SO Walter. The priest was amazing and it was such a beautiful tribute. My prayers continue to be with his wife and two young sons. He was taken much too soon...

In other news, being the terrible mother that I am, I waited until the last minute to get Middleman's Halloween costume. On Wednesday night, I dropped him off at soccer practice and headed over to the local Party Packagers to buy a zombie costume...yeah right. The store was SO packed, that they were only letting people in by tens. The line up was ridiculous. I turned around and went back to my van, feeling like a complete failure. I sat there for a few minutes, wracking my brain for ideas...then I posted my woes on my beloved Facebook. One of my brilliant friends responded, "Just write 'book' across his face ... facebook. =)". BRILLIANT I tell you, BRILLIANT!

When I pitched the idea to Middleman at his soccer practice, his teammates loved it. Middleman, not so much. "No one will know what I am! I wanted to be a zombie!"

Sigh...

Then, my brilliant mind came up with the idea of making a sandwich board out of bristol board and making him a Facebook WALL! HA! BRILLIANT! My original idea was to just paint the bristol board with bricks, but then I decided to create a replica of Middleman's wall.

Here is the result:





I SO rock. Anyway, Middleman wasn't THRILLED this morning, but when I watched from the bedroom window, all of his friends were laughing and reading his "wall"!! I can't wait to see what everyone had to say about it when I get home!

Boy Oneder is too cool to dress up. He had originally decided to dress up as Alan from the movie, Hangover. He had sunglasses, a baby carrier and a doll with sunglasses on, but he chickened out at the last minute this morning...ahhh...grade nines!

Threepeat went to preschool this morning as Wolverine:



He is just the cutest thing EVER!

Boy Oneder's hockey team tied 3-3 on Monday night. Yesterday was Hubster's 44th birthday...we had yummy chocolate cake.

We have a week-long visitor coming starting tonight. Smokey, my friend's pooch, is going to stay with us while his "Mommy and Daddy" go on vacation. I'm looking forward to getting to know him!

Tonight, Boy Oneder has a hockey practice, then it's soccer, hockey, soccer, hockey all weekend.

Time sure flies when you are busy!! Pin It
