Trick or Treat and other fun...

Today was a long day....had to babysit today and just let me say that I earned my $ 20 today. The 4 year old stage is obviously the tattle-tale stage because that is mostly what I had to deal with today...so and so hit me, so and so took my toy, so and so did this....YIKES! And so much attitude! The time out corner was used by everyone today. Not so good. Hopefully Wednesday will be a better day.

So...like I said last night, we took the boys to Cambridge tonight to go to "Valley of the Dinosaurs"...an exhibit that they had over there for the month of October of dinosaur statues...it was OK...not quite what I was expecting...though we were a bit spoiled by the place in Kentucky we went to a couple years ago that had life size dinosaurs that Brennan what ga-ga over...these were much smaller, but Brennan still liked it some...as much as I hate to admit it, I think my little boy is growing up and though he still loves and knows his dinos, me thinks the dino phase is highly overshadowed by things like Star Wars and super heros. It's sad to see, but man I wish they didn't have to grow up so fast. They also had an "Enchanted Forest" there tonight were the kids got to trick or treat....and man did they ever get candy!!! They pumpkin pails were literally overflowing with candy...after the trick or treating they did last week and tonight we have two huge Tupperware bowls of candy....enough to rot their precious teeth five times over!!! Thank goodness for the trick or treating cause I think the boys would have been disappointed in the trip otherwise.

Well like I said hubby is on vacation this week. Hoping to get some stuff done around the house and start our Christmas shopping. We'll see what happens.

Have you ever lost something, possibly misplaced it...not sure, and you swear it was in the last place you put it only for it to just completely vanish?? I bought two new sets of clear rubber stamps and had them on my computer desk and man if I can find those pesky things!! It's aggrivating me!! Never even used them yet...I think I'm aquiring those senior moments just a bit too soon! I just pray they just didn't end up in a trash can by accident...if I only had the $$ for things that accidently got thrown away in my house!

Well I'm off to bed....it's been a very long day!
