random blabbings & yappings...

Besides being busy I can't remember what day of the week it is, much less the day of the month. I look at a calendar but I don't know what day to look at because I can't remember what day of the week it is. That is when my husband or my cell phone come to the rescue.

I am excited to say that I will be getting an i phone. I am so stoked about it. The best part about it, I don't have to pay for it nor the bill. Yes way!!!!

Let's see we have been sick for about 3 weeks now. I first then Audrey, Steve then Andre, now Audrey again. Dumb colds & fevers. But it's not that bad for Audrey this time. So that's good. Andre obviously can't go to Kindergarten until his well & we have to take him to the Dr, to get a note that he is well. Today as Steve was walking, coming home for lunch he saw a friend who's daughter is in the same KG as Andre & they had signs up that said some of the kids had Scarlet Fever. Yikes!!!! I think we will hold off on KG for another whole week, what do you think?

We have started a mama's group at our church. We meet every Thursday from 9-11. I like it, I am helping the person who is leading it & my, there is a lot of work that we have to do, since it's the first time that we have it & well we have to get all the materials ready etc etc. Non the less, it's good. The kids play, then color, lesson, eat & talk with the other momma's. It's kinda cool.

Friday, we will be going to the movies with all the girls from our youth group. We will be seeing High School Musical 3. I'm looking forward to this time with the girls, not so much for an English movie being in German. The last time I went to the movies was over a year ago. I think it's time for another visit for an english evening movie.

What else is going on....I made little stockings for Christmas. A friend gave me material all in reds & whites & remnants & I used my sewing machine. I am not done yet. Steve & went to a store & saw 24 little stockings clipped with a small wood clothe pin. The stockings were #ered from 1-24. Very nice, you out little gifts in there for each day until Christmas. I think we will be buying this for the kids. So my stockings that I have made will be hanging on the Christmas tree this year, with little goodies.

Since I was sewing last week, I got inspired to make Steve & I some M&M costumes. I will be making them with fleece blankets. Now I have buy some stuffing material to puff us up. We will be wearing them next Wednesday for our anti-halloween youth party, I am calling it Hell-No ween party hehe.

So that's what's happening on my neck of the woods. Toodles from Austria.:)

Those times when illness just seems to go on and on - ugh, it really wears you down doesn't it?

Anti-halloween? Sounds like fun, but I don't really think that halloween has got anything sinister about it now anyway has it? For most it is just an excuse to dress up and get some free sweets!

B-renda!! I was waiting for the story from the pictures of the future haridresser that you posted on Facebook!!!!!! hahahaha Sounds like life has been pretty eventful over there across the ocean. When are you planning a trip to the states again?? Make sure to post pics of the M&Ms.

I love your title for the anti-halloween party! That's awesome. I am so sick of Logan coming home from school with a stupid ghost or witch paper. I hate that the great season of Fall and Halloween have to be intermixed.

That Christmas stocking thing sounds really cool. I might have to do that with the boys too.

Hope you are feeling better. And yes, I would hold Andre out if scarlet fever is going around, and much prayer too. Love you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
