Who Says...

It's too early for hAlLoWeEn? Zach was too excited to just let this Pablo costume hang in his closet after receiving it in the mail today. Thanks Grandma RaeLynn! Halloween can't come fast enough.

Kate Has Some New...

TeEtH! 4 in fact. The top four. She has been working on them for the last month and they have finally pushed their way through the gums. Here's her toothy grin...

She is finally wearing shoes. I have been waiting to get these sneaks on her since Uncle Jeff, Aunt Britt and the kids gifted them to her. The weather was so nice that we decided to test them out at the park.

I am feeling a little fortunate lately due to the fact that I don't have to try and get that cute little faux hawk in her hair, she wakes up with it already styled. Someone might just have some wild hair once it grows in a bit.

OK...So We All Do It...

"It" being "bLoG sTaLkiNg". "It" just starts to get a little out of hand when you realize that you have been reading someones blog, that you totally have no idea who they really are, for over an hour, which leads to future hours spent checking back to see what they might post the next day, and the next day, and the next day, until finally you are hooked, so hooked that in some small way you feel a connection with the author of the blog you stalk, and in some cases feel the need to comment on their post(s), like "You are freakin Hilarious!" or "I found you through a friend of a friend of a friends' blog, and I just have to say, etc, etc, etc. Who does this? And you are a liar if you say you don't. Especially if you are their newest Internet friend. i.e. - Have never met them before in person, but now have communicated via email or via comments back and forth to one another. Anyways. Here are my most recent stalkings and frequents(see side bar, "Want to escape? Walk in Her shoes.")...and my disclaimer, the blog stalking happens ONLY after the kids are in bed, and ONLY when I feel like being totally unproductive. If you know me this isn't often, but maybe once a month(That's just to make me feel better about myself). Tonight just so happens to be one of them. I should really be in bed. But thanks to a friend of mine I got sucked into another...seriously, some people are talented writers, that for someone who hasn't read a book for fun since the sixth grade, and would rather read a trashy smut magazine, that is filled with pointless celebrity gossip, would read these blogs?...they must be good!

A Little Bit of...

RaNdOm is all that we have been up to lately. Justin is in the middle of interviewing for perio programs. He got this letter in the mail for a request for an interview, and it is his first letter where he has been addressed as Dr. It is all a little serreal. Eight more months and it really will be official. School has just flown by.

A couple weeks ago my mother-in-law invited me to go to the Creating Keepsakes Convention in Valley Forge. It was one of the best weekends we both thought we had ever had. I think we are still having withdrawals. We took tons of classes and learned all the latest and greatest in scrapbooking and card making. Here are a few of our several projects we were able to do.

Zach is still working on his "RaD mOoBs" (rad moves). He pretends that he is Pablo every day. Here is a sneak peak...I snuck the camera in so if you last the whole song(s), then you must really be missing him. Don't miss too much though, yesterday he threw the world's worst temper tantrum and took it out on our car. What child gets that mad over a mom(me) saying no to buying him a pez dispenser, that he feels so inclined to scream through the entire store, all through the parking lot and then kicks and hits the car, and continues to scream and whale in the car until finally falling into the deepest sleep. I didn't know whether to laugh or cry. Forget terrible two's...lets talk about the TeRrIbBle ThReE's!

"Can I Go...

To MoNkEy JoE's?", is the question Zach has asked me every day, for the past two weeks, since grandma and grandpa treated him and the fam to the newest bounce gym in their neighborhood. It is just like Bounce U or Pump it Up, etc. but is much more kid friendly and parent friendly too! While your kids bounce til they drop you can relax in their message chairs, watch TV, surf the Net, you name it...what a great way to leave the babysitting up to the blow-ups, and for us parents to get a break.

They finally wore out after about an hour. Zach probably could have kept going, but Kate was done.

She loved it though...see for yourself. And see what caused Justin to say "Illegal"...She either was giving him the courtesy laugh, or really did think he was cute, bum knee and all. The question is what was he thinking?
