A Catch Up Post

Goodness. TIME IS FLYING, Y'ALL. I haven't even been taking lunches very often lately so since that is my prime blogging time, the ol' blog has been dormant. I don't know why I've felt so cannot-catch-my-breath-busy for the last month or so, but it seems like it has been non-stop. Here's some of what's been happening.


I made John stand up for an entire football game so I could rest my legs across his seat.

Charley likes circle time so much at school we decided to do it at home also. Charley, Laney and the toilet make a great circle.

We got started planning Halloween costumes. Laney was thinking Grimace, but we aren't sure yet.

Remember when we dropped out of dance class after I'd already spent the $75 on the recital dress that I promised was the UGLIEST TACKIEST THING EVER that wasn't even deserving of dress up box? Well it's been hanging in my closet for some reason ever since May. I did some cleaning out of my closet and figured I should at least have her try it on.

See? Even uglier than I promised.

QUICK! Let me post something cute as an eye-wash of sorts. I also had Laney try on an outfit I purchased for her to wear in family pictures.

I gave you a double dose just in case. Hope your eyes are okay.

I decorated for fall and Halloween the other night. John was away that night, so I stayed up late and decorated to my heart's content. Around midnight I held up this creepy guy to see where I wanted to place him.

I am not exaggerating one bit on the timing of what I'm about to tell you. AS SOON AS I held him up, just like I'm doing there, the FREAKING COMPUTER started playing some commercial. It was just a lady talking, and I'm pretty sure it was just a Value City Furniture commercial, but DO YOU KNOW HOW CREEPY IT WAS TO HOLD THIS UP IN THE COMPLETE SILENCE AND THEN HAVE SOMETHING BEGIN TALKING??? I considered burning the place down and starting over elsewhere. There wasn't even any browser windows open on the computer. It was randomly from some program running in the background. I nearly needed to change my pants.

Let's see, iPhone photo stream, what else have we done in the last month....

We went camping at the beach during a tropical storm.

I demonstrated my cool demeanor and excellent parenting skills after taking this picture, noticing Laney actually smiled, THEN noticing the cat on Charley's head which caused me to stomp my feet like a toddler and reprimand Charley for ruining my picture. Nevermind her eyes are almost closed.

Turns out that kind of made the picture so I apologized.

We celebrated birthdays. First Daphne's,

Then my dad's.

We attempted to smuggle a baby.

Untitled

We didn't take advantage of my children playing nicely together, and instead peeked around the corner the whole time and took pictures.

Untitled

We went to the fair where Charley spent a LONG TIME at the bee exhibit talking to the beekeeper who of course was a stranger. You know who else keeps bees? Her uncle. And he keeps them right next door, yet she's never even shown an interest in them at all.

Untitled

My serious baby has continued seriousing, despite holding a ball that clearly says SMILE.

Untitled

And I am TIRED, y'all.

But! Maybe things will slow down soon. There aren't many festivals or holidays or anything coming up right?

See you in January. You know. That month where accountants are never busy.
