I love you mom!!
Carson gave me multiple hugs this morning wanting to make sure I have a great day.
I sat on the stairs as I watched for the bus with him. He things he's too big to have his mom wait with him. Little does he know I'm watching him. ;)
Since it's starting to feel like fall outside I put up fall/Halloween decorations before work. While at work Carson had told his classmates that it was my birthday and they all wished me a happy birthday. We ended up having indoor recess due to the rain and while in his class his whole class sang to me. They are fun kids!
I talked with Karlee a couple of times, wishing me a happy birthday. She was a little concerned about tests today. I talked with her again tonight and her Book of Mormon midterm didn't go over well. She got a 67. She has one more midterm tomorrow. I hope it goes better.
Yesterday I wasn't ready to let go of summer and I made these super yummy cookies. It's a peanut butter cookie, so soft, with a marshmallow then a fudge icing. So good!! I had one today and it tasted as good as when they were fresh last night.
