Halloween Week

I haven't really been on the last couple of weeks. I've been very busy. Paco got lasik so he had the week off and we got some much needed family time. Being in the Marines has really screwed that up for us. I think he is at work more then he is home. Which is fine for him because Paco loves his job. I'm not saying he doesn't love us but I can see that he has a purpose now and that makes me happy for him.

We went to the pumpkin patch and let the boys pick the ones they wanted. We had never gone to one before and we loved it. I think we are going to make it a family tradition. The boys had so much fun running through the fields of pumpkins and deciding on the perfect one. They even picked the stencil that they wanted us to carve for them. Matthew of course wanted a skull and Christian really doesn't know what's going on yet so we picked out a ghost stencil for him. I have to admit the skull one came out better.We took the boys trick or treating Sunday night and they looked so cute. Matthew was Leonardo the Ninja Turtle and Christian was Captain America. I think we only stayed out for an hour and a half by the time Matthew decided he had enough candy and he was ready to go home. I think he was just tired of walking which was fine with me. I don't think they need that much candy anyways. I just want them to have an many happy memories as possible.

Paco's mom never took him trick or treating and he always said he wanted to when he was a little boy. I know that she would flip out if she knew we took the boys, but I'm not going to take that away from them when I was able to go as a little girl. I don't think it's fair or right but hey that's just me. To each their own right? All I know is that the boys had a blast and seeing them happy makes me happy.

Paco also got Christian to sleep in his toddler bed. I think he is still too small but he likes it for the most part. He'll go to sleep in it but always wakes up in the middle of the night and wants to go to his crib, so of course I put him in it and he goes right back to sleep. He will nap in the toddler bed though. I tell Paco that we need to take baby steps when it comes to that transition, but I really think its just me wanting Christian to stay little and not grow up. He's my baby and it makes me sad to see him growing up so fast.

So that's pretty much all that is going on with me at the moment. I'll be back soon with all the little details of my very exciting life as a mother and wife :))
