We're still here...

I have caved to peer pressure! All my blogging friends have posted super-cute pics of various pumpkin-related activities and their kids. We have not made it to the local pumpkin patch; the closest thing I've seen so far is the huge box of pumpkins at Wal-Mart! But our orange gourds turned out pretty cute (thanks for the plastic inserts, Wal-Mart) so I just felt I had to share!
On another note, I've been spending a fair amount of time with an old friend from Dallas, Dr. Brian Drake. He's a chiropractor here in Austin and is helping me get straightened out and out of pain. Apparently, staring at a laptop, hunched over, is not really good for your posture. So, my laptop spends alot more time in the SHUT position, which means less blogging (among other things). That being said, I'm off to practice good posture and clean up the continual mess of a kitchen. TTFN!

Granbury fun

Last weekend, my sister and I trucked the kids up for a visit to G-town. It was definitely a contest as to who was more excited - the grandparents or the grandkids. We all had a lot of fun and left our hubbies to get some work done in peace and quiet. We had a blast celebrating Papa Ray's birthday!!

My sister put together a fantastic slideshow - take a peek!

I brought the kids back for more fun this weekend. Mom & Dad are playing with kids while I spend a little time at Hockaday, helping my friend while she is on maternity leave. It's so fun to go back there, especially now that it's been more than 5 years since I left full-time employment. I love to catch up with my old friends and meet all the new ones. However, I'm very aware of the fact that I can no longer sit at the computer and "crank" all day like I used to! It feels more like my college study days - work for 20 minutes, break, work for 10, break, then time for lunch! Probably why Dave would never study with me in college! He was a serious study-er!!

So, that's it for my work break, back to the numbers!!
