Lots of pictures!

Wow. It has been awhile since I've put up pictures. So, I put up 9, yes 9, slide shows over on the Cookie Monster blog.

What's over there? Well, lots of stuff: Halloween, first day of school, Roo's birthday, me Dragon Boating, the zoo, Sugar at the farm, golfing... lots. You are under no obligation to go check it out. But if you want on and don't yet have an invite, let me know.

For Halloween, I was sick (I colored my nose read and put purple bags under my eyes) and Brad was my doctor. Jamo was Anakin Skywalker. Roo was Bidoof, a Pokemon. Sugar got a horse where she is two of the legs. We went to our church last night to trick or treat from room to room. We filled our room with balloons. Quite a mistake as it turned into a mosh pit and the older kids weren't always gentle with the young ones. But, the kids liked it.

Roo is 7!

Well, it has been awhile, eh? We had a fabulous time with my mommy in town. We love it when we have visitors!

Roo had his 7th birthday party. We caved and took him to Chuck E Cheese. Once or twice a year can't be too bad, right? It is actually getting a lot better now that the kids are older.

I have his SUPER cute pictures over on the Cookie blog (let me know if you need an invite please!). Sonja did an amazing job!

What a drag!

The Dragon Boat Festival got delayed.

Statement Issued by Local Official:
"The City’s Emergency Management Center is predicting devastating flooding along the Schuylkill River, perhaps as great as anything we’ve had in the past 25 years (this includes Hurricane Floyd). They are predicting flood waters reaching the CSX RR tracks and possibly into the neighborhoods."

Here are some stats that were passed along to me:

For the month of September, the river was running at less than 1,000 cfs (cubic feet per second).
Right now it's running at 76,300 cfs
Anything over 18,000 cfs, and all paddle sports are PROHIBITED

I am quite sad as it was the only Saturday Brad has off in October. Now, I either need to find a sitter at 6 am on a Saturday or not go. Boo.
