This month I went back to work at our business officially after a 6 year absence. I had to go out and buy a whole new wardrobe of work pants and socks..and non denim apparel. I have yet to figure out how to keep my house clean, the laundry done, dinner on the table at a decent hour and still have time to do the things I love. Will that ever happen?
Charlie comes with me everyday..he's learning to do the taxes and take messages. It's not going too well, as he keeps eating his notepad. He is still blind. No Christmas miracle here..lol. We went to the eye specialist today and about fell over from sticker shock at what it will take to repair his eyes. I am now battling the farm girl in me and the animal rights activist in me in trying to figure out what to do.
Football is almost over for the boys. It's been a pretty horrible season for Cole, his team didn't win a single game during the regular season. Drew's team however did incredibly well. They were undefeated in their conference and only had one non conference loss. Next week they play in the superbowl to determine 1st place overall. SO excited for his team. He's just had a ball playing, and learning the game.
Friday is Halloween, and for the first year ever the costumes aren't that crazy. We just didn't have time to really get creative. It makes me feel guilty and sad. Sigh. Oh well, next year..right?
This blog post is incredibly random. I just realized that. lol So more randomness..
We are teaching Charlie to say I love you...there will be video once we perfect it. It's the most hilarious thing ever.He can't sit, but he can speak. Get ready.
Cole is in theory selling wreaths to make money to pay for his baseball season. They are actually really pretty..and very well priced, and he's only sold 1. He's seriously bummed out. This is the downfall of living in an area with no neighbors. We really have no one to solicite. :( So if you want to build a little guy's self esteem...email me. The products are here:mickman brothers. If you order one, they are shipped right to your door via ups, at the end of November. They are very reasonable in price and are just beautiful..and smell so good. Like Christmas. :) They are anywhere from $27-31.25. That includes shipping it anywhere in the continental US. To sweeten the pot, anyone who orders one will receive a fabulous RAK from my scrapbook room, of current goodies. I've got a nice stash..lol..and I'm not afraid to share it. :)
Next week the kids are having a photo shoot with Becky and I am so excited I can't hardly stand it. She does such great work, and has such an incredible eye. I am always in awe of her work. Plus I found really cute outfits for the kids. :) Originally I was going to spend WAY too much money on a skirt for Brenna from Matilda Jane, but decided I should poke around etsy first, and low and behold the power of Etsy came through. Seriously I am having a major crush on etsy these days..it's like boutique shopping in your pajamas. I love it. :) Put that together with a little abercrombie and gapkids..and we have the look folks. :) I can't wait. Plus it will be the last photos beforeDrew and Brenna enter the land of braces. Cole so far is managing to escape the wire wonderland, but the verdict isn't set in stone.
Charlie is asleep in my lap, and snoring like a very large dog, so I shall wrap this up for now. I'll leave with a couple of fun photos. Brenna and Charlie modeling their festive halloween decor. The boys are horrified that their boy is wearing a sweater..but he looks smashing don't you think?
