October is almost over!

This is the second week of sickness in our house.
Paul now has a really nasty sounding cough.
Luckily, it isn't to his lungs and he's starting to sound a little better.
He is just so pitiful.
I'm ready for everyone to be well again! 
Even though the children have been sick, they have been in relatively good moods.
Paul is always happy, even when he sounds like he is coughing up a lung.
Robert.... not so happy, but still very energetic.
This was before Paul went to the doctor yesterday. Robert decided that he needed some toys to play with.

I haven't gotten much housekeeping done other than the dishes and laundry (which I had to fold a mountain of today).
It's hard when the house isn't organized to get things done.
I've had some really good cuddle time with both my boys, and I wouldn't trade it for anything in the world.
The dirty house will wait, but my boys are growing up too fast!
Paul is now 11lbs and 15 oz!
He's tiny for his age, but growing quickly.
He was pretty much crawling yesterday, it was so cute.
He can get wherever he wants to go, and he can do it rather quickly.
He is so sweet.
Since the house was messy, Hubby was working on a truck, and I knew I was going to have to cook supper soon, I decided it was a great time for us to take Robert's car outside and let him ride it. 
He had a lot of fun! 
 At first, he kept getting out of the car, and didn't want to ride it outside... Kind of strange.

 Paul came along for the fun!
 He was afraid to ride it up the driveway. So he pulled it up.
 I just love how he still pulls his feet up! So sweet!
 Riding together!

 After riding his car up and down the driveway, he pulled out the tricycle and rode it around for a minute.
 This morning, while I was washing the sheets and folding clothes, Robert decided to let Paul play with a few of his toys. He piled them all up around him. He does that all the time.
 He can't wait to be able to really play with Paul!
 My laundry buddies! :)

Robert helped me sort out all the metal hangers.
We have so MANY metal hangers and most of them don't get used.
I weeded a bunch out today and Robert helped me sort.
Now we have to get rid of all these!
Paul is finished nursing, I'm off to get some more cleaning done!

Soup and Suits

I have two sweet baby boys.
I love them so very much. 
They make everyday more fun.
I love caring for them, cuddling with them, and just being their mother.
I have two boys that aren't feeling well.
I'm planning on taking Robert back to the doctor tomorrow. I'm afraid he isn't getting over this bronchiolitis.
And Paul sounds like he's got something going on in his chest too. 
I hope they get better soon, I hate for them to be sick.
But, I do love the cuddling that comes with it.
They were so cute in their suits at church today.
This was Paul's first time in a suit, and oh so sweet!
 Loving on their Grandaddy (or Da-da, as Robert is still calling him)
 My three Handsome men! I love them so much!

I can't believe this sweet baby is almost 5 1/2 months old..

By the way, I'm going to try to blog more often about our "everyday" adventures. My children are growing up so fast. I want to be able to go back and read about this time in their life. I was reading older blogs from when Robert was a baby, and from when I was pregnant with both boys. I wish I would have documented more. 

Tomorrow will mark the first full week since Hubby and I deactivated our Facebook accounts. 
I feel very free without it.
I don't have to worry about other people's business.
I have more time to get things done.
My self esteem is better.
I don't have to compare what I'm doing everyday to the highlights of the people on my "news feed" and feel inadequate.
I am happier.
It's nice to be able to communicate with people face to face.
Or at least phone to phone. :)
At this rate, I don't see me joining the facebook community again for awhile.
But who knows?
This break is nice.

Well, I'm off to finish the tortilla soup and bean burritos for supper.
Till next time :)

Fall is my Favorite #4- The Hayride

I've been meaning to blog about the hayride for a week now.
We had the hayride last week, and it was so much fun.
It was the 24th annual hayride.
We have had a hayride every year that I have been alive.
How cool is that?
It was cool outside, and we just had the best time fellowshipping and enjoying the time with our Church Family.
