What's up?

I know I haven't been posting quite as frequently as usual these past couple weeks. I've already mentioned that we're pretty busy. My parents arrived last week; they've been staying with my brother the past few days, and will be "moving in" here later this afternoon. I still need to get some more cleaning taken care of before then. The kids are really excited to spend more time with Grandpa and Grandma.

We had our second MOPS meeting yesterday, and our pastor spoke on loving our husbands. Well, actually he spoke on how our husbands need our respect. Always a good reminder! Another very good meeting, and thankfully our childcare situation was much better, too. Thank you, Lord!

I finished up my first round of samples for the stamping design team I'm on and got those mailed off on Monday, and now I just have to decide which sets I want to work with for the next quarter.

We're pulling things together for our church's Fall Fest this Saturday. I'll be dragging my Mom out tomorrow for a shopping trip. And I have nearly 200 pounds of meat to pick up on Friday! We're expecting a good turnout, as this is the first time in "OUR" building, so we've invited neighbors, families from the day care programs and MOPS, and pretty much anyone else from the community that happened to make eye contact :) Seriously, though, we're very excited about this. The temps are feeling more fall-like, but it's still a bit warmer than average - perfect for an evening out with the family. Crafts and games for the kids, songs around the fire, yummy food and fellowship.

Oh, and did you notice the new profile pic? Yes, not only have I cut my hair but I've colored it as well. Problem is that the color didn't take evenly (I think my hair is just too coarse for "natural" products. Bring on the ammonia, baby!) Need to find time to take care of that as I'm planning to have my Dad snap some family pictures for us. Here's hoping that our kids can make it through the next few days free from major facial abrasions!!

Its always a good reminder to respect our husbands. It takes so many different forms and not something that comes naturally to a lot of people.

Did you color your hair or have someone do it for you?

Can't wait to see the fam. pics!

The one thing from the talk yesterday that was my personal "zinger" was not to talk to our husbands like they're our children. But it's such an easy thing to do when we're SAHMs, as that's who we spend the most time commucating with! But our hubbies need the loving support of their wife, not a surrogate mommy.

I colored my hair myself - I just can't bring myself to dish out money for it. Highlights are one thing (as they require precise application) but all-over color is a piece of cake. The brand I used is supposed to last a 4-6 weeks, but I've specifically been using clarifying shampoo (translation: strip your hair!) for the past week so most of the color is already gone. I'm bringing out the permanent stuff next, though.

Hope you're having fun with your parents!

It's supposed to be nice out tomorrow for your Fall Fest! What a great way to reach out to the community!
