It's November already! Whose ready for Thanksgiving Meals ? Have you started your Holiday shopping yet ?
We had fun yesterday lots of fun at the Faith Chapel Trick or Treat . I did end up waking up way too early because my arm decided to go numb while I was sleeping and then I tried to go back to sleep but I think I twisted my back because its so sore or maybe its just tired but oh if I'm tired I will definetly see about heading back to sleep after Brendan gets on the bus .
Brendan brought his 2nd grade report card home yesterday only one 2 out of all 3's , all G's and he is already at the end of the 2nd grade reading level and it is only the end of first quarter . I do have the parent teacher conference tomorrow so I'm going to see if there is a possible chance if Brendan can join in on a 3rd grade reading group .
that's great that brendan is reading at such a high level! I personally can't wait to make my own turkey for the first time. It won't be for thanksgiving but just in this month lol. WE're gonig to steve's mom's house for the actual holiday as I'm still at war with my parents (long story). I have not astarted christmas or birthday shoppnig and I AM NOT LOOKING FORWARD to trying to have a christmas with very little money. Jake is doing very well in school. His math is at a 4th grade level with most things. His concept of money is improving greatly but english and reading are still his weakest spots.
Frederick is doing in preschool as well. He's learned to count to 10 in Spanish, how to play my nintendo 3ds, etc.
I cant believe it's already November! Yep. My sister is going to be ordering our thanksgiving turkey from Kroger in about a week. I'm actually off the thurs and friday this year for thanksgiving so it's definitely a bonus.
As far as Holiday shopping I haven't bought things yet but I have them on layaway and have been paying on them.

Vicky I think I might just do layaway for Walmart and that's awesome that Fredrick is doing great in preschool. That's great you get those days off .
Jessica that is awesome you got all your Christmas Shopping done !
I'm am going to be doing the Thanksgiving Dinner at Mom's house as my mom will be not able to help out so I told Brendan he puts Tablecloth , plates , silverware and glasses on the table when the time comes .
We will also be handing out Thanksgiving Run Packets on the week of Thanksgiving the Day before Brendan first Thanksgiving Break .
I wish I was doing the layaway program. unforchantly christmas may be very light this year as we have to focus on keeping bills paid. Neither of us is really owrking right now. Trying but not succeeding so far. So just trying to keep our heads up about that. As for jake's birthday. We might just get him something small and invite family over. Thanksgiving is at steve's mom's this year so we're gonna go there.
Jessica how awesome that you're compeltely done. When is ava due?
