I know you are in shock!!!

This is from Hannah's Bat play at school. She was the loudest singer you could hear only her... at least she was on key. Hayden got to come to Belmar for the Red Ribbon parade. He had a good time playing the base drum. I told him next year to pick the snare.. it is not as heavy.
Hannah is playing basketball for the first time. She actually made 2 baskets at this game!
This is from my trip to Dallas. This is my friends Tracy Cortesi, Nicki Crump and Tiffeni York. We stopped and ate at Maggiannos (sp) Really great food if you have not tried one.
This is from Hannah's play "The Velveteen Rabbit" She is on the second row in the grey with pigtails.

Ok, I know that I have nooooo excuse for not posting since September 2nd. Can I say that I am just busy all the time. Yes, I stay home... well some of the time... but life is just busy all the time. After school is one mad dash to another place. I don't get to sit down until 10:00 pm or so... Ok enough excuses.. I will try and catch you up on what has been going on.

October was busy with Hannah. She was in the play "The Velveteen Rabbit" It was a Amarillo Little Theater production. We had nightly practices for about 2-3 weeks. I also played lots of tennis. My combo team won a local tournament so we got to take a trip to Dallas and play in the sectionals there. It was lots of fun. My team did not do too well, but we had fun. So far to date this year, I have played 18 USTA matches and have 3 loses on my record... so I have played much better this year. Hayden played USTA junior tennis and did very well too. His team did not advance but he was the best player on his team. Richard was busy with his Oct 15th deadline at work. He still has yet to slow down. Hunter has not been doing too much other than guitar lessons during Oct.

November so far... consists of Hannah being involved in another Amarillo Little Theater play called "The best Christmas Pageant ever" It is really a cute and funny play. She does not have lines in this one... but is actually involved and on stage a lot more than her previous play. We now have practice nightly for 3 weeks Monday - Thursday. Hunter and Hannah both were models for me for the Christmas Roundup Luncheon. They modeled for Children's Place and looked so handsome and cute. Hannah thought it was the best... Hunter just liked the fact that he got to get out of school for the day. I even got Richard to model for Rafkinds. He got to wear a Burberry coat that was $700.00. He did not even know what Burberry was... ha!

I am still subbing at Belmar. One of the Kindergartners could not say my name last week and so I became Mrs. Rocketship to him.. it was so cute that I never did correct him. I get to sub in 1st grade tomorrow and then 3rd on Friday. My favorite to do now is PE. I love it... I can wear sweats or shorts.. I don't know what everyone would not want to be the PE teacher.

Hunter is going to be in the spelling bee at Belmar on Dec 2nd. He has always been a great speller. He loves to help Hayden spell words the right way. The kids are all doing really well in school this year. Hunter and Hannah have had all A's so far.. Hayden was really close.. he has a B in math, but all A's in the rest. Not too bad considering the only homework I ever see is math.

I cant think of much else to say.. so I will try and add some pictures.. we got to have Peyton spend the night the other night and it was fun. He was in such a good mood the entire time and just laughed and played with the kids.
