Thankful - Day 5

Today, and every day, I'm thankful for this munchkin. Hands down, the best surprise I'll ever receive.

Thankful - days 3 & 4

Well, that didn't take long to miss a day!

While today, November 4th, I'm thankful that school is back in after a 4 1/2 day break, I'm also thankful for a great friend who takes a stray child for the morning so I can get stuff done and enjoy the silence while C naps. 

Yesterday I was thankful for a great backyard (and an even better baby daddy who bought the spray paint) where the boys happily played for 8 hours straight. The amount of dirt that lined my bathtubs after showers, and the dirty/muddy light switches in the bathrooms was totally worth it!

A Month of Thanks

I've been wanting to get back here {so C has some record of his life...cause we all know his baby book, although bought, has very little documented} so here goes nothing...

Days 1 and 2 ~

I'm thankful for these munchkins. 

They test me daily and I don't know know what I did to deserve them, but I'm sure glad I did. 

And I'm thankful for the porch on which they sit ... the mortgage payment is painful but sooooo worth it to know it's ours and we don't have to answer to anyone about it. 

So there ya go.  I'm really going to try and keep up with this ... And hope that after doing it for the whole month, it'll become a habit again. Otherwise, I should probably go ahead and set up a donation page for C's impending therapy. ��

Lake Monticello, 2014 edition

Only a month behind . . .

We headed south for our annual weekend at Lake Montecillo and had a wonderful time - as always.  The boys swam, and swam, and swam.  They tried out the tube behind the boat for the first time, we rode on the boat, and had lots of great family time!


Gs first official photobomb!

I had emailed Katelin earlier in the week and asked if Patrick could possibly bring some handcuffs for our police - obsessed child to see what "REAL police handcuffs" looked like.  he went above and beyond . . . and I had 2 boys in heaven.

G, naturally, traveled with his police costume, but H even took his Woody costume {from Halloween 2012} to be G's sheriff.

REAL handcuffs being put into a REAL handcuff holder.  

Even E got in on the dressing up with some gloves.
And then there was some more swimming . . .



Little brother sooooooo wants to be a big boy!

If you must be up at 5:30am, this is a pretty good spot to enjoy some coffee.  {Thanks, E . . .}

Patrick also gave the boys some "ticket books".  Obviously they were a hit . . .
