Today being Columbus Day, I was looking forward to the kids having the day OFF! Which means, I don't get to sleep-in a little, well I don't really get to sleep-in, the baby is still up, but you know what I mean, I have to get breakfast ready, and run the kids to school. We've got a routine down somewhat down, which cuts down on the chaos a little! Instead they get a half day Weds., Thursday and Friday OFF! Which an extended weekend is more like it! Yesterday, we tried to get our haircut. I know Sunday's are a day of rest and businesses close early. I just thought that meant 6pm. My husband was running around doing things for his business, and by the time he got home it was 4, we got to the salon a quarter to 5, and the lady said,"I'm sorry we're about to close!" Working in restaurants, I understand the feeling of wanting to go home, so I wasn't going to press the closing in 15 min issue, so instead my oldest daughter and I went to the Halloween Costume store and got her, her costume. It's a secret, I'm saving a pic of for Kailani's Halloween Costume Contest. I promise a pic of my daughter's haircut. I'm going to trim it an inch or so and see if we can blend the part where she cut it.
Here's a few shoutouts on a Monday morning that brought a smile to my Face.....
Liz posted pics of The Balloon Fiesta in Albuquerque. If you haven't been, it is one of the funnest things to go to, and see! I would like to go back and see the Night Flights. Kelly's post about Kid's Responsibilities is up at 5 Minutes for Mom. ChiliHead has posted some great Halloween Decorating Inspirations, to get you in the Halloween Spirit.
Everyone have a great Monday!

Hey thanks for the shout! If you ever come back here let me know! I can't wait to go see the Special Shapes!

The kids don't get Columbus day off anymore - not PC anymore I guess. They do have today off - ONE WHOLE DAY - woopie - for fall break... how lame! Anyway, you have a great Monday too!

I wouldn't have pushed the 15 minute thing either. Who knows what kind of haircut she'd end up with!

Thanks for the costume contest shout. I'm looking forward to seeing what you got!
