Happy Halloween!!!

Happy Halloween Y'All!!
Can you believe it is almost November? That means almost Thanksgiving, Christmas, and a New Year!!! Un-believeable! This has been a BAD year for our family. So bad I don't even want to re-cap. We are supposed to do the trick or Treat thing tonight in my old town of Perryopolis, but the weather will be against us I am sure! Rain and cold. And what scares the hell out me is the H1N1 virus. I can't stop freaking out about this. It horrifies me that my kids will get this.
Hope you all have a spooked Halloween and don't get too spooked!

A true milestone

Today is the day I save the date! My son has finally pooped on the potty. I have to say, my life has been such a whirlwind lately, that this has definately been news to share! He is 4 years old, and I was beginning to wonder if I was going to have to send him off to college with his pull-ups!!! He is a big-boy now and I hope it continues to be a milestone each and everyday here, because, Lord, I need closure!
It's been a long time since I have posted on this blog, and I have an awful lot to say...
September 2008, I gave birth to my beautiful baby girl, Gabriella Nicole Kieta. We call her Abbie. As a matter of fact, I don't think anyone has EVER called her Gabriella! I don't think she would even answer to that name. She is now 14 months old and very, very smart. She started walking at 9 months, does pretty much everything for herself. She was such an easy baby. I might have followed in Michelle Duggers footsteps had she been my first! Nah!
Nico is now 4 1/2 and is 80 lbs and is over 4 feet tall. He is beyond super intelligent and I am not even close to joking! He writes his name and address, dresses himself, runs the laptop better than I can! I am asking him how to do things! When he starts school he will excell. I am very proud of everything he has done so far.
My husband has turned a new leaf. Going back to school. It's stressful for him, but he is trying to make a better life for us. I love him for that. He has been working hard and schooling too! Living for his Christmas break I am sure.
It will be a year in Janurary that we lost my sister to Lung Cancer. It still feels so new. I went to the hospital the other day to purchase a brick for the memorial walkway they are putting in; I must say, it is beautiful. She would be very pleased! I miss her more and more each day!
I can't believe the holidays are creeping up on us so quickly. I have yet to start fall cleaning. It is useless tryng to clean with my crew. Abbie is my "right-hand man" when it comes to everything! As soon as she see's a cleaning bottle...look- out!
WELL..HOPEFULLY... I will be able to post more often now I am on a roll and have you all updated. Have a wonderful day! Shannon
