Here's a ton of pictures again!

Halloween was great... Josephine was Tinkerbell, Maureen was Sleeping Beauty ( plus she wanted wings, too) and Veronica (I guess) was a fairy princess. Little Louis came to trick or treat with us (he was a cowboy) and all the kids had a great time and got tons of candy!

This was at the homeschool "All Saints" party. The girls had a blast... Josephine was St. Therese of Lisieux, and Maureen dressed as an angel.

Jarod, as a scary Saints fan, passing out candy.

Maureen's Birthday cake: Her birthday was on October 28th, she's now 4 years old! Time flies!!!

After going through a half dozen ideas, Madeline decided on being "Miss Louisiana." :)

October 21st was also Michael's and my Anniversary. We've been married 9 years (together for 11 years), can you believe it?! And I hit the big 30 on November 10th... I'm definitely feeling my age! I can kiss the 20's good-bye!

Wow - it really has been too long, this time!

I've only got three pictures for today... there hasn't been much picture-taking around here, lately... I've started back to work (mon. and wed. are full days, tue. and thur. are light days) and tomorrow starts Josephine and Maureen's 5th week of homeschooling, PLUS we've starting ballet for both girls, PSR (parish school of religion) class once a week, homeschool PE once a week (our first class is this thursday) and once a month "Little Flowers girls club" for Josephine and Madeline.

Michael built a special table with plaster to help in the process of renewing his clay... he can explain it, but I don't know how to! There is a possible part-time job for Michael at Baton Rouge community college in January... we will let you know when we know anything. We plan on doing the job application process for FT jobs all over again starting at the end of this year up until next summer... although we'll be happy if he gets settled in with a PT job locally for a couple years, if he doesn't get something FT.

Veronica dropped an unopened 46 oz. can of juice on my toe this morning. I yelled, really loud and even cried a bit! I don't think I even cried when I was in labor! It's black, blue, purplish, red and a little swollen. It feels better now, as long as I don't put any pressure at all on that toe, don't hit it or rub it against anything.

The pictures are from a few weeks ago... I hope to post more next time!

Well, to be frank, Michael was not accepted for the job at MGCCC... to make it worse, he was SECOND pick! In other words, if their 1st pick didn't take the job for whatever reason, Michael would have had it. We found out last Saturday... it was very upsetting, but we're getting over it. Michael spoke to the Dean, who informed him that he had very high interview scores... and that they had a record number of people apply for that one position.

Unemployment sucks.

Anyway, we're slowly making plans to stick around here... I'll start teaching piano again, and Michael will continue to apply for adjunct faculty jobs locally. There's two more colleges in Colorado that we haven't heard back from, but we're not holding our breath. The college in South Dakota (which he was turned down for) had 150 applicants for the one art instructor position! 150! In South Dakota!

Here's two photos Josephine took of herself: so cute :)

MeMe bought all the girls some dresses from Belk... they're modeling some of them below. Belk had a 70% off sale - true bargains for some really nice dresses!
And finally, the grand prize winner: Really. Out of the three girls, I have to say this is the messiest baby/toddler eating picture I have! I was occupied with all the other kids playing a game, while the baby was right behind me eating pizza in the highchair. I turned around to discover a very messy Veronica!
