Playing Catch Up

Like I stated in the last post...we are currently without Internet at home, and it's killing me.  No, I don't have any cute Facebook status updates to post, nope, I am not really missing Twitter, and no, sadly, no awesome blog posts, it's just that little thing called work.  See, I work 2 days in the office, and the rest from home.  But when most of your work is connecting with people through email,'s a little difficult to do without the Internet, throw in a husband and some kids in there, too, recipe for disaster folks. 

So I am slammed with some work, but I am trudging along.  I can not wait to have a connection to the outside world back in our house on Wednesday.  You really don't know what you have till it's gone!  Anyways...I thought I would show you what we have been up to lately.  I knew it had been awhile since I downloaded pics off of my camera, so I did that today.  And wow, we are really boring!  I only have a couple new pictures to share, ha!

Last week I got two little pumpkins at Wal-Mart for the girls to have.  I am waiting for Aldi to sell theirs, they are cheaper than any other place here, and they are always big, too.  So I got these tiny ones for the girls, and decided to let Molly paint them.  She had a good time and I was going to add their names on them, but haven't gotten around to it yet, and Molly already put them outside.   

Our very Fall looking pumpkins...all purple with a little bit of pink mixed in!

While Molly was hard at work, so was Lucy...eating!
This past weekend one of our friends celebrated her 30th birthday with a Murder Mystery...the murder happened at the Homecoming Dance.  So we all got dressed up and went to play detective!  It was a lot of fun!  
 Eric was a math teacher, "Teach Tanner" and I was "Gabby Backer."  The class gossip and socialite. 
Don't look too closely at this last picture, this was the only "gown" I own and it's almost a 7 year old bridesmaid dress from my best friend's was a little bit of a squeeze to get into, but I made it and even ate a piece of pizza while solving the murder! 

This week we literally have something every night, some nights 2 or 3 things going on, except tonight, we have nothing, hallelujah!  Molly starts dance next Monday.  I am excited for her, and I hope she knows some girls in her class.  I know some other girls were going to the Tuesday class, but with our schedule on Tuesdays, the day both Eric and I work, and have small group at our house, there was no way we could throw dance in there.  I hope she loves it just as much this year as she did last year!  

Alright, better get back to work!  Lunch time is over :)

I would def miss having the internet if my computer and phone went out! I wouldn't necessarily miss all the social media stuff. It's nice to get a break from that!

I think I need to pick up some pumpkins to paint too! I love how she made them mostly purple :) my fav color!

That bday mystery dinner thing is SUCH a neat idea! I love it!!!!! I wish we did cool things like that around here. If I had one no one would prolly show up!
