So today when I was at Home Depot with the chitlens and the Ma, I Meet Nie Nie! I felt like I was meeting a SUPER STAR!
I approached her and said..."Sorry I don't mean to bother you, but I love your blog."
She replyed, "Oh thank you."
I added, " And you were fabulous on Oprah!"
Nie, "Oh thanks, I feel silly for doing it."
Me, "No, you were great! I really admire you!."
Nie, "Thank you."
Totally Awesome! I Know!
John and I were due for a new table so I thought I was save us a few and just buy a used one and refinish it. I found this beaut for $30 (I forgot to get a before pic but you get the general Idea of what it looks like) John went out of town hunting so I though after I put the kids down for bed my Mom and I can tackle this beast. My mom loves when I involve her in my projects (not really) I convince her by telling her it's a bonding experience!
This is Ma sanding away that beautiful forest green color that was so popular in the early 90's!
This was the mother of all beast! Taking Varnish of is a pain. Laterally, my back was killing!
Ma in action! Are you getting why she doesn't enjoy my projects? (if not, it's because she's the one mostly tackling the job. Mother does it best!)
Tonight We, as in Sethy and I, finished the project. Although Ma gets out of this one, well sort of, she had to watch the kids...the credit goes to Sethy Poo on this one. I primed and he painted it! What a lovely job he did! I Can't wait to put 'er together and surround it with my pale yellow chairs for the finale! Thanks Seth and Mom! Don't get to relaxed I'm sure I'll have many more bonding projects to come!!
This is the tree in front of my parents house and it is so pretty so I thought I'd take a picture before all the leaves fall off! (the picture doesn't do justice for the tree!)
glad I did because right after I took the picture we went and ran an errand and when we got back....
the leaves were gone
:( so sad.
Fall is my favorite and it just never lasts long enough!
So I feel like the worst mom in the world. On Thursday I took the kids to go take there pictures up the canyon. The WHOLE time Keir was whining. He was driving me CRAZY! I was so snappy and short with him. Well we get home and he had no other option but to take a nap because I was done! He woke up warm and just as whiney. That night was hell so the next day I took them to the Dr because they were both coughing and snot was flying! Don't you worry he was whining for a reason! He has an EAR INFECTION!! Where were my motherly instincts on that one? Poor boy, he needs a loving mommy not a MEAN short tempered one! Sorry bud.
This is the results when Keir has an ear infection....
This is Myla with a ear infection (which by the way the Dr could hardly see because of her ear wax, dang it another bad mommy moment! How am I suppose to get it out? I don't want to shove it in further! The Dr agreed so I feel better!) Getting a kick out of Keir whining!
This is BOTH of them by the END!!
and they still love me!?!

Little Miss Sunshine is 6 months old today! She is still as happy as can be unless... the lunch room (aka mommy) leaves her sight then it's a sad, sad story :( She is a scooting fool. She sits up for a little bit. She loves her big brother!
She has brought some serious Sunshine into our lives!
We Love You Myla Moo!

Keir Loves to play cars! And so does Myla Moo. As soon as she hears Keir dump them out she is over there! She could care less for her toys. She likes the Big kid toys!
There she is... She can't decide which one to play with?!? Too many to choose from.
Keir is the BEST big brother! He is so patient with the Myla Moo. He shares his cars and is always like.."Mom can she have this one?" or "She's fine she can have this one!" and if he doesn't want her to have one he finds her one she can have!
My two BIG joys!

So I want to start a book club. I have never done anything like this before and I think it would be fun! I would like to meet once a month to discuss the book, preferably at night when my kids are in bed so like around 8:00 p.m. I will serve treats too! Let me know if you are interested and if you have any ideas since I'm new to this! Thanks! Oh the book I'd like to read is
Since the past 4 1/2 months we've lived with "Grunma and Grunpa" Keir has made some good buddies...
Grunma who he loves to play Hide N' Seek with and other various games and....
Grunpa who he loves to help whether it's taking down a tent or other various things. He loves being chased by him he loves his grunpa and is always concerned where or what "Grunpa" is doing. He told me last week that only "Grunpa, Seth and Me can mow the lawn" and when I asked him, "well, what about dad" his reply was "oh yeah...No dad just likes to be inside."
He even got his tools to help him with the tent!
I know we are only moving a few blocks away but we are sure going to miss our Grunma and Grunpa!
We love you guys so much and are so grateful for the past 4 1/2 months! Thanks for all you do for our little family! (I am crying right now...oh wow)
On friday we got the privilage of watching Little Leo while his Mama Liz went to work. Thanks for playing with us we had fun!
Isn't he beautiful!? Look at those Eyes!
Keir pulling his mysterious face looking so handsome, crusty buggers and all!
This is making the blog because Keir NEVER I repeat NEVER eats apples or fruit of any kind! Way to go good buddy!
Finished product! Good enough for me!
Since it was fall break and Nana didn't have to teacher we went to the Beam Museum! We(Keir Myla and myself) went with Leo, Nana, Aunty Em and baby Iris!
Keir and Leo. Leo wasn't able to get out of the stroller in fear that he might want to become one with the animals and go WILD (even though they're only stuffed)! It was Hilarious, Nana was scared to get him out of his stroller, I look over and she has picked up the whole stroller and he is getting a drink out of the fountain! Funny stuff!
Baby Iris slept the whole time. What a little angel she is. (Ahhh... just look at those cheeks. I just want to kiss them! Eww...I Just love her!)
