Always Have A Dream

Always have a dream
Forget about the days when its been cloudy,
but don't forget your hours in the sun.
Forget about the times you've been defeated,
but don't forget the victories you've won.
Forget about mistakes that you can't change now,
but don't forget the lessons that you've learnt.
Forget about misfortunes you encounter,
but don't forget the times you luck has turned.
Forget about the days when you've been lonely,
but don't forget the friendly smiles you've seen.
Forget about the plans that didn't seem to work out right,
but don't forget to always have a dream.

A Family Filled Weekend!

Cody has been doing much better. We will see the Doctor on Thursday for his checkup. Hopefully he'll be able to go back to school on Friday so he wont miss his Halloween party. Even though they don't dress up anymore! I don't understand why it's such a big deal, and Christmas also. They can't make any reference to Santa Clause, and it's not Christmas, it's 'Holiday'. That's all I'll say about it.
Anyway, Cody had his testing for his orange belt on Saturday, he did awesome! Even though they are supposed to basically holler when they do their moves and kicks. His throat was a little sore afterwards, but other than that he was fine. I can't believe how many people were there. Barb & the Twinkies, Mom K., and my Dad showed up to watch Cody. He thought that was nice to have so many family members there to watch! Then we spent the rest of the day over at Mom & Dad's w/ the rest of the family.
Sunday Mike, Cody, & myself went up to Barb & Paul's. Mike helped Paul in the basement, they got two coats of primer put up. While they were doing that Cody, and I visited with Barb, and the Twinkies. After they woke up from their nap Barb & I took them to Frankenmuth, they had a Halloween parade and trick or treating for the kids at an out-door mall. The kids had fun, even though it did rain a little, we even had pea sized hail for a few minutes. But we made it. Sarah, & Jacob were so cute, as Mickey & Minnie. Cody was Harry Potter. Then we went back to the house, and had dinner. We really had a nice time!
It was a nice weekend all together. Sorry I don't have anyother pic's, I had our old camera w/us, the one without the zoom, but didn't take any. Barb had hers and got some good pictures.
Hope everyone has a good day. Take care!

So glad we could make it for Cody's testing and then get to spend 2 days with you guys! The twinkies obviously LOVE playing with Cody so I know they had a blast, too. When they woke up this morning, Sarah asked about Cody right away and then later found the picture he drew for them and carried that around with her and talked about Cody some more. :-)
