With a big sigh of relief, I've finished not only the fall semester, but my last semester at TCC. I'll be receiving my Associates of Arts in May (they don't have graduation but once a year :/) and then next fall will be back at UTA finishing up my Bachelors of Graphic Design and Communications. So...once this holiday is complete I will be uploading the (gazillion) pictures and blog entries that I have not been able to get to with finals and everything else.

To catch up, in no particular order.
I am thankful for:
1. Coffee, without it I'm a bumbling fool at times.

Between Halloween parties, trick-or-treating, dinner, school, homework, exams, and all the upcoming festivities to prepare for at work. I've been here:
|Well not this bed, but my own.|
|Scary thing, isn't it?|
I need coffee, lunch date, and a haircut. Any takers?

We didn't carve pumpkins last year so this was Kinzey's first time. She loved the end result but was hesitant to stick her hands in the pumpkin guts! Once she did she loved that she was helping! Houston had fun using the hammer to push the pegs and stars in and was so proud of his creation! He also loved wearing glow in the dark vampire teeth all night! I'm proud of Aaron's! It's so good! His grim reaper and gravestones look perfect! Instead of candles (real or fake) we used orange string lights and put them inside for some extra glow!
I also sorted out the seeds and with some butter, salt, and a 350 degree oven for twnety minutes (flipping once) made some awesome seeds. I haven't had them since I was pregnant and craved them!

|Kinzey loves her number puzzle from Dollar Tree. She also loves telling you what the numbers are :D|
|Houston had two soccer games again this past weekend. I forgot the camera for the first one though :(|
|Kinzey loves watching her bubba at the games and shouting "Hustle" and "Go Jets!"|

So remember this: driven! ?
My husband's site is up and running with the new redesign and new server. It looks great, thanks in no small part to myself :D and my husband working together (yes we did want to kill each other over it, but we escaped with only a few cuts a briuses, j/k).
He is hosting a giveaway! Total Value $200
How? Like the driven! facebook page and then tomorrow at 3:00 pm a trivia question will be posted. First one to answer wins a four 2-day passes to Texas Motorplex Oct 22-23 (check it out here).

|We went for a great walk|
Today we collected acorns and pine cones since the weather was so nice out! Kinzey loved filling her bag up! She was great at finding the acrons that still had a "hat" on them!

Had so much fun watching Hootie play this weekend! I think I got some great shots of him and his fancy footwork!

And I don't care who knows it!

Pictuers are more than words, best pumpkin patch we've visited ever!
So the bedskirt and headboard ideas are in the making.
While I work on that, this post has haunted me since I posted it.
Our room does NOT normally look that bad. Here is what it looks like right now:

This week we've been playing with all our new toys, but Kinzey is really loving her chalk board. We reviewed shapes, colors, and we're starting to write the letter K.
|She loves to tell me what's on the board "pink circle", "yellow square", "triangles, oval, numbers. She didn't really want a "K", she wanted a "pretty K!"|
|My nephew came and stayed the night, and the toddlers had a blast in the bath tub! Look at those faces!|

I'm having difficulties figuring out what to read, how to interpret, and what to gain from reading the bible. I love reading it, it's just that since I have yet to be placed into a bible study group at church (I help in the nursrey Wednesday nights, and my husband and I attend the parents course Sundays) I'm at a loss as to where to begin. I read through Proverbs and Ecclesiastes, but what next?
I was trying to find a bible study group online, but so far the only thing I've found is bible study outlines and lesson plans. These could help, but I am still missing the interaction with others on their insight into the reading. I do a weekly bible study that came with my bible, but want a book(s) to focus on for the month.
Does anyone have any suggestions?

I finally finished going through Kinzey's party pics! Here are the ones that didn't make the first two collages:
|Kinzey had lots of friend and family show up, she loved seeing everyone!|
|All her gifts were a huge hit! She hated having to put them aside to open the next ones. I'm really excited by all the learning toys, I think she loves all the dress up toys the most!|

So I guesstimated being back this past Monday/Tuesday with pictures from the birthday party on Saturday.
I sat down Monday night, opened blogger and began reading while I uploaded pictures from the camera.
Even opened a new post.
Then the total picture count came to 229 images.
Really?!? I'm supposed to sort through 229 images and decide on what I want to put on my blog. Of course Kinzey was being extra cute so it's really hard to decide.
So I put it off, and put it off, even posted my little canvas art up thinking oh I'll do this one now and the birthdya party ones tomorrow. And then I put it off again.
Let me sidetrack here by saying this week has been a no-sleep, can't think, sidetracked kind of week. GOd's been awesome with the weather and my work, but testing me out in ways I thought I had previously put behind me. Guess a reminder test is always right around the corner.
Anyway, without much further ado, Kinzey's Second Birthday Party: (By the way if you were there, she loved absolutely EVERYTHING she got, and we've had to go through her old toys to make room for the new ones, but they are all still sitting in my living room waiting on something to be finished for the kids room. So thank you everyone!)
|Kinzey wore the tutu I made her last year for her birthday again. I sense a tradition (no not the same one every year, lol).|
|Her decorations and cupcake cake.|
|She cried when we all sang happy birthday, and then she got mad that I didn't give her a chocolate cupcake first.|
I still have all the pictures of her opening presents and playing with the family to sort through but this should tide everyone over for a bit!
If you have any questions over the decorations or food (or anything really) leave me a comment and I'll get back to you!
