Today, I have worked my booty off. I have gotten so much done, that I just had to share!
John helped me move the couches out last night. So this morning, my mom brought over her Dyson (the most amazing vacuum in the world!) and her rug cleaner. John's mom came and got Julie, so I started out by picking up the whole house. Then I vacuumed the whole house, which I did last weekend, but still got 2 full canisters with the Dyson....EWWW! Then I cleaned the carpets in the living room, and spot cleaned the carpets in the rest of the house. They look awesome. Then I looked into the kitchen, and that floor looked gross in comparison, so I cleaned it.
Then I emptied the dishwasher, which is pretty much a daily thing with the bottles, but still a chore non the less. I reloaded the dishwasher, cleaned the counters, sink, table and chairs. Then I took the really dusty blinds down in the kitchen and hosed them off.
While everything was drying, I washed all the mirrors in the house. Do you know how hard it is to get dried pb&j off the mirrored closet doors....yuck! Then I striped our bed, washed the sheets and remade the bed. And put Julies clean clothes away. And wiped down her bathroom (my wonderful hubby did our bathroom last week).
Now I am eating lunch (leftover meatloaf and mashed potatoes, yum!) and watching What Not to Wear. Andy is taking a nap. That's right, he has been home with me all day, so a lot of this I did with him in the Bjorn. Next step...shower.
Our house is ready for company. Even though we are not having company. I am pretty sure that has never happened! Now, John just needs to mow the lawn, and we are ready for Christmas decorations! Inside and out! YAY!!!

The next stage of our Halloween fun was going to Farmer's Market in San Luis with Heather, Joe, Lina, Tom and April. We even got to see Tanya, Matt and Anna. Lina was so cute dressed up as Little Red Riding Hood! And Anna was the cutest panda bear you have ever seen. Julie had fun because she was allowed to walk around, holding our hand. But being out of the stroller is a real privilege for her.
After we left Beth's, we went into my work for the Halloween Potluck. As much as I love being home with the kids right now, I miss the great people that I work with. So it was nice to go and have lunch with them and show off my adorable kids a little. Plus, they got to see their Memere and Auntie Audrey, which is always a highlight.From there, we went home for a nap. Julie slept while John and I prepared for the afternoon and fed Andy. Then, Grandma Anne and Popop Dave came over and we all went to a carnival at Dr. Patterson's office. Julie got to experience her first bounce house. I think she is addicted. She also fell in love with a little boy dressed like the Hulk. I kept trying to get her to go for the fireman, but no such luck. This carnival is also where we got the great picture of them at the top of the page. Julie is such a good big sister!
While we were at the carnival, Uncle Justin and Aunt Audrey stopped by on their way up north. Audrey was looking very festive, as was Poppy! I love this picture!
