Fall is here ...

I know ... I suck. I start way too many posts like this ... I need to figure out what I want this blog to be, and then I think I will be better at it ... I need to post all the kid pics, because a lot of family and friends come here to see them ... but Facebook has kind of taken over for some of that. Oh well, I'll figure it out.

Anyway, what have we been up to you ask? Well, we've had some fun weekends with the kids ... scheduling playdates, going places, trying to keep them happy and busy. Oh, and yes, I am back at work now. That does kind of suck. I didn't realize how much time I had to get stuff done while I wasn't working and wasn't taking care of the kids. The laundry never backed up, the house was always in some sort of order, I made dinner almost every night. It was crazy! But, all good things come to an end. And staying home while getting paid and not watching my kids was definitely a GOOD thing!

So, I got some cute pics of a day at the park with the kids. There was a local town fair, but I screw it up, and went too late and it was basically ending, so we just hung out and played on the swings. The kids loved the swings, so it was all good!

Twins on the Swings

I haven't been able to see my sister's twins as much as I would like. Between me going back to work, and her living farther than she used to, and my kids being sick a lot, it's been tough. We all had dinner at my parents one night, and Boots was showing Sami some lovin'.

And I just love this picture of the kids in my bed together in the morning. We have a daily tradition of everyone piling into mommy and daddy's bed when they wake up, and putting on some sort of movie ... Boots was pretending to be sleeping ...

We had a really fun time two weeks ago when DH's band got together for a little reunion. It was a really good time ... We ate some food, the guys played for a while, and all the kids got to play together. After the guys were done playing, they let the kids mess around singing into the microphone and playing the drums. Moop LOVED playing the drums (yes, that does scare me). Here here is playing the drums, and Boots is patiently waiting next to him for her turn. And yes, he is wearing a Run DMC shirt!

When it was Boots' turn to play, Moop WAS NOT happy about it. He's not so great with the waiting for his turn thing.

Then last weekend we went to take the kids pumpkin picking and they had a blast. Here is Moop helping Boots cheat in the hay maze and go OVER the path, instead of following it!

And then a cute pic taken by Daddy of the 3 of us on the hay ride!

We are brining the kids up to see my sister tonight, so hopefully we will get some more pics of her twins with mine!

A Baby Story

We have a date!!

Our episode will air on Friday Oct 30th at 1pm on TLC. I'm excited and nervous. I didn't really think that my 15 minutes of fame would be me all fat and pregnant on tv. haha.

But I think it's going to be amazing to see the journey. And it's going to be an awesome keepsake for my sister and the babies.

On a not so happy note, I go back to work on Tuesday the 6th. I'm so not ready. This staying home, not working, not taking care of kids, and just lounging around all day thing is REALLY NICE. Unfortunately, it's not affordable. So, off to work I go.

More updates and pics coming soon!
