His mommy knitting desperately to get done in time for Christmas.
His quickly growing feet.

Joel claims to be forever mentally scarred from being forced to listen to his mom's students play piano all day, every day (poor baby!) but I feel so blessed to be able to provide this opportunity for my own children. I was able to take piano lessons for only a few months as a child and then because of my family's financial difficulties and a move to a new town, I was not able to take lessons again. My eight year old little heart was terribly sad but I tried not to let on since things were so hard for my parents already. I know that they both worked very hard to provide a home and our basic necessities and I am grateful for that. My childhood experiences make the addition of this piano to our home that much sweeter! What a joy it is to know that our children will have a chance to learn music at such a young age.

Popcorn & licorice... $0.00 (mooched off my friends).
Hearing the collective female intake of breath upon the shirtless state of a certain werewolf...
Loved the movie and was NOT disappointed! ;0)

What's even sillier is how many times I have now read the entire Twilight series. I think it's too embarrassing to admit! Then you will all know that I really don't have a life!
So, what are you looking forward to this week?

I'm also not a good "how to" blogger so I'll give you a little visual tour of the process and then you can check out the specifics here!
The ingredients are pretty basic.

Because we are super special (and paid lots of extra money) we earned the dubious title of "VIP" and as such were herded like cattle onto the floor to participate in the Q&A session. Interesting, but hardly worth the extra cash, not to mention the 45 minute loooong wait outside in the cold. I felt a bit like a NSVIP (not so very important person)! Joel and Zach actually got some face time with the band on Friday morning at a meet n' greet at the Red Letter Book and Cafe. Zach got a t-shirt signed by the band and Joel said they were quite impressed with Z's curly locks. I just asked Z what he liked most about meeting Skillet and after a thoughtful pause, his response was, "They gave me a high-five!".
This girl was an incredible drummer!
And this guy rocked the violin!
Who are these crazed Skillet fans???? Our friends, Rhonda & Rob! Rob is a maniac when it comes to getting the best seat in the house! They were right up front and center against the rail. You crazy kids! Thanks for all the great pictures guys!

Corn Maze (See our fearless leaders! I of course was hopelessly lost!)
Transformers: More Than Meets the Eye!
When we went costume shopping Noelle told me "I'm so tired of fairies and princesses! Can I have a transformers costume like Zach?". How could I say no? ;0) She was so proud of her tough girl costume!
Zach's preschool party! I was so glad to be able to get away from work for a few minutes to surprise Zach at his party. Here he is telling his beloved Miss Robin about his costume!
Preschool Pumpkin Patch (still fun even though he has dozens of pumpkins at home!).
Our fun trick or treating group in the Quinn's neighborhood. We had a great time!
