It has been raining a lot here in Kansas. Did I mention a lot? Friday night I woke with it raining in my bedroom. The ceiling seems to only want to leak in my closet. Why is it my closet and not some where else...say my husband's closet, my teenage son's closet or even possibly just in the hall? Of course as it is raining inside both girls are awake and scared of the dark. Then if it lightnings they are scared of the light and noise. Needless to say I did not sleep much that night. On Monday it was still raining and what does my 6 year old say. "I want to walk to school in the rain with an umbrella." When I mention a coat she advises me they can't go outside for recess so she doesn't need a coat. Go figure, at night when we are sleeping they are scared of the rain and during the day when it means they'll get wet, cold and probably sick they want to play in the rain.

My girls have been counting down for Halloween since September 1st. They are so excited. Sydnie who is 6 decided she is going to be a half angel/half devil. Such a creative idea. It has turned out very cute as we pull this and that to create just the perfect costume. I only hope it turns into what she is seeing in her mind. Bridgette has decided on Tinker Bell. The only issue is that she believes she is Tinker Bell every other day not just on Halloween. My husbands teases that she is out child who lives in the play land of "rainbows, unicorns and fairies". Although he is teasing I think he may be onto something. She is such a poser. Maybe someday she'll make millions!!
