Spring Cleaning in November

I feel like lately our life has been a little cluttered. I feel like we have just been in this downward spiral and we can't seem to break out of it. When I say cluttered, I don't mean with objects or papers or junk. It's more like cluttered with drama, and problems that we don't seem to have very much control over. It's starting to drive me insane. Things always seem to blow over, but these few things have been lasting for months. It's put me in a funk. It's put Dan in a funk. 
I'm ready for a change.
I'm ready for something different to come and shake us out of this funk and give me something to look forward to!
I'm ready to give 2012 the finger and all the drama it's brought into our life recently and start new in 2013. LEAVING said drama BEHIND and all the people who BROUGHT it!
So I'm spring cleaning.
I'm cleaning out all the junk from our lives to try and shake this!
and the hardest one of all
I don't want to have negativity in my life, and if that means that I need to start holding people at arms length, or even a little further, then I will. We have two adorable little boys who deserve to have happy healthy parents and good relationships with people who love them. I can't put any more emotion or effort into relationships that are a one way street and a bike path.
So here's to starting my new years resolutions early! Let the "spring cleaning" begin! starting with my new blog design! I feel better already!

Halloween this year was kind of a disaster. Well it was fun except for the trick-or-treating part;)
Here's why....
Damon did NOT want to put his costume on...

He didn't want to go trick or treating at all. No matter how many times I told him about the candy.

When I finally forced him into his costume he was a little mad, but when he saw the kids coming to the door he got more excited. So we decided to take him out and give it a try......

He didn't say trick or treat, which made me feel bad taking peoples candy. But he did say thank you so that counts right?!

Here's where it got really ugly/funny/sad.

We went to a house and a little girl in a freaky mask and a flash light answered the door and screamed boo at Damon, flashing the light in his face. He was so freaked out he actually crapped his pants. haha No joke. I gave him a hug after it happened and I was like "Oh my gosh, Dan, he literally got the crap scared out of him!"

We tried to get him to go to a few more houses but he just kept saying "NO more scary Daddy! No more!" So we went home, and drowned our sorrows in some pizza and candy.

We put him to bed and put in the last Harry Potter, and about 45 min. later Damon came down and joined us and was so happy and cute we couldn't put him back in his room. I'm glad he didn't have nightmares, and slept like a baby!

It was a halloween to remember! I've never really been a huge fan of halloween, but it's way more fun when you have kids....most of the time;)

 Now I'm just glad it's over and all my decorations are put away and now we can start my favorite holidays! Thanksgiving with famiy, black friday shopping (just as good as a holiday), my birthday, then the best of all....CHRISTMAS!!! I'm so excited!
