Came and Went

Wilma came and went and thankfully made landfall further south than expected so we mainly got rain and lots of wind. We are missing a few shingles from the roof, have some leaning and broken palms, trees, and bushes and lost power for about an hour. Luckily we weren't here. We were in Orlando at Disney World enjoying the Riverside resort. The kids had fun at the Mickey's Not so Scary Halloween Party even though the majority of the time they were getting poured on. The rain started about 2 hours after we got there and stopped long enough for the fireworks and parade to take place (about 40 minutes) before pouring again. We had fun anyway. The decorations were great, there was lots of great yummy candy, and the lines were no more than a 5 minute wait. Most of the rides we walked up and got right on. We even did the Haunted Mansion this time around and all three boys liked it. Lots of fun! We'll go again next year for sure!!! Now we are working on the Christmas Party.....

We closed on the house finally!!! Wednesday morning the mortgage broker called and asked us to be in the office at 4pm so we went and signed the next hundred papers as if we were starting all over again to have the house. So my check comes in on Monday and then we get to start shopping for the pool, new car, and other things we will do with the money. That will be fun but I will not like watching it go.

Papa Bear and I will get a night away alone next weekend for the Bucs game. Woo Hoo!!! Can't wait! This weekend we will be decorating pumpkins and probably checking out new cars. So long Supra...hello new SUV to hold all of my kids!!! LOL

The boys are looking forward to Halloween. They have had a LONG break from school since it is closed all week due to Wilma and power outages in the area. Monday they are supposed to go back (hopefully) and then they get to come home, eat, and trick-or-treat! The Professor is a Power Ranger (Space Police type), Bam-Bam is Buzz Lightyear, and Lil' Michaelangelo is Mickey Mouse. They look really cute. At Disney everyone was calling Lil' Mikey "Boss" and asking him for a raise. When we went on the Buzz Lightyear ride the cast members kept saluting Bam-Bam and saying "Hey Buzz" at him which got him to grin. Hope they have fun around the neighborhood too!! :)
