Where have I been?

It has been about a week and a half since I posted. I hope you'll all forgive me as I was sick last week. I didn't even get to enjoy my birthday dinner. So I must have been pretty sick because I normally don't give up food for anything. Mmmmm my Mom's are so good. Sucks that I missed them. Next year. I'm feeling much better. A wee bit tired but that could be from the lack of sleep because Chris has been on this crazy course. For the first 3 days he only got around 6 hours of sleep. Starting at 8am and not getting home till 4 am and then back up at 6am. Yikes! He's still on the course this week and won't be home at all tonight. So he left at 6:30 this morning and I don't know when we'll see him next. I don't know how single parents do it.

Anyway I feel like I have lots to write about seen as I've missed posting. Halloween was good. Quinks was sick and so missed out on trick or treating but did not miss out on the candy. He had a fever on Friday and then by Saturday evening he was running around. I think he was fine with the no trick or treating when we brought candy back for him. Thanks to my dad for watching Quinten so I could still take out Taylor and Spencer. It sucks that Chris missed out. Next year he'll be with us. Taylor was a pirate, Quinten dressed up the day before and he was a vampire, and Spencer was a monkey.

                            Sad Quinks come trick or treating time.

Spencer wanted his face painted too until I actually put the make up on. He wasn't a big fan.

 Some of their stash. Spencer was fast asleep already, probably in a sugar coma.

The halloween howl 10k run was fun. The weather was somewhat yucky and I have been quite the running slacker over the last few months. But we managed to pull off a decent time. The race was the kick in the pants I needed to get running again. You could dress up for the race and I dress up as a patient.

There were a lot of laughs and Roxanne loved watching everybodies reactions. I even heard a couple of ladies say "Oh no we're behind the butt. " And one older man wanted to be behind the butt. Not sure how to take that one. It was fun all around.

As a side little point. Taylor is selling poinsettia's for gymnastics and we have a certain fundraising goal we as parents have to reach. If you would like to help us out by purchasing 1 or some please let me know. They are $12 each and come in red, pink or white. If you are from Edmonton we could figure out how to get them to you.

Anyway because of the being sick I now have a major messy house so off I go to clean up the disaster.
