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.

Too bad the Halloween candy can't be for breakfast, lunch & dinner!!

 Now that the candy collecting is all finished. Too bad you can't explain to kids that candy isn't considered breakfast, lunch and dinner! It's great to see how excited they get over getting all dressed up and walking their little legs off to go trick or treating! The other thing that's hard is trying to keep from sneaking a piece of their candy when their not looking!! Not that we don't have enough calories to count now that the holidays are coming! They are so fun to look forward to though, getting ready for Thanksgiving & Christmas. 
 I love seeing the changes that come along with them all. To bad that with the way kids grow that you also have to think about buying new winter clothes because they grow out of them so fast. Too bad you can't put a brick on their head and slow them down a little, and keep them small for a little while longer. We just got Cody's school pictures last week. It's amazing when looking through his other school pics' how much he's changed, and grown! I guess our Mom's were right when they say we grow up too fast! How right they are! But it's great to see all the changes year after year, even month after month.
 Mike, Cody and I spent another Sunday with Barb, Paul & the Twinkies this last Sunday. It's was so fun spending time with them. Cody loves it so much being able to play with his little cousins! It makes him feel so grown up! He loves it now that they can actually say his name. I just wish we could spend more time with Nicci, Mike and Luke! Too bad we all don't live closer together! I guess it just makes the time we do spend together more special! I can't wait to spend time together during the up coming Holidays! Everyone take care & hopefully talk to you and see you all soon!
