Time to do the 400th Post Eve Party Dance!

Another sweet spot.
Ummm.... I'm pretty sure that mom said the orange one was mine.
make a wish.
first tub time together.

I like 'em round... I like them chunky.
(it's his theme song)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Our daddy has been gone so much lately. He is training a new guy at work and although we are thankful this new guy has come along to help with the workload, we miss our daddy.
So we've been snuggle buggling, trying to get these boys feeling better - turns out they both got a fever and now have a croupy cough which I think is from those hot days and cool cool nights (with the fans blowing on them). So! lots and lots of movies have been watched. Lots and lots of juice and nasty medicine that Pauly is VERY sure he DOES NOT need with sides here and there of fresh air.

The other day I rented the best of the Mickey Mouse Club. Pauly didn't really like it but I thought it was divine and I can't seem able to stop singing the opening song ... you know,
M - I - C - K - E - Y....

uh-oh, now you won't be able to quit singing it.
bwahahahahah!
So my next post is my 400th post! (insert party dance here)
Clue: There will be cake! There will be candles! There will be presents!
Bring a friend!

False Advertising... or is it?

Life has been kinda crazy around here lately. Saturday was a pretty hot day, and I thought I was being a good mama when I went to the store to get my boys a little kiddie pool.
Paul had a good time in it. William thought he was being punished.
Paul probably spent an hour in the pool and then came in for the night.
The next morning (Sunday), I got him dressed for church but noticed he was really .... blah.
Pauly.
Is.
Not.
BLAH!
So me and my Mr. were worried he had a bug so they stayed home from church so we didn't spread the buggy love.
So off to church William and I went to church.
I had nursery - which usually means good visiting with the other mamas and running after kids.
Good Fun!
After church William and I went to the grocery store as I had not done any shopping since I had got back from mom and dad's yet. SO.
I ended up getting quite the load of groceries and thankfully when we got home, daddy was there to put them away as William was D.O.N.E. and I was starving.
I was taking a breather in my comfy chair holding William when I glanced in the kitchen as I was talking to Ben to notice he was writing with a sharpie on the box of biscuits I had just bought for our little Mr.
My husband is such a goon!
I love how he can make me laugh!!!
William just started crawling and already is so fast! ...
so this was quite fitting. By the way, we think Pauly had a little too much heat that day in the kiddie pool and two days later he is finally back to normal.
Be careful in that heat friends! Scary!

Plan: Meet sister halfway so we can travel together.

Feed the kids and hope they nap.
Mission Accomplished.

The kids didn't waste any time finding something to do.

Coloring, drawing... anything to pass the time till Mimi and Papa got home from work.

I love these two men with all my heart.

Heavenly.

I love laughing around with family.
This is my Aunt Lyn.

The kids would run through the pool and Aunt Jo Jo would spray them.
FUN! FUN! FUN!
Aunt Ce Ce and Mimi.
Gorgeous.
Then Papa gave two little boys some hats.
They adore them.
I think Pauly wants a rope for his birthday... he better not ask for a goat, Papa.
I won't be able to handle a goat and chickens in the city.
BUT... I do have a ton of weeds that need ate.... hmmm.......
Birchy loves his Mama.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Thank you Mimi and Papa for the wonderful time! So glad we were all able to be together.
I love you all so much!
