Kids say the darndest things

All parents could write a book with all the things our kids say. I had an eye appointment this week and the assistant took a picture of my eyes which showed up on the doc's computer as 2 round things. Quinten kept talking about the doctor looking at my boobies all while I'm trying to get him to stop. As the doc was looking at the eye picture Quinten said it again. This time the doc heard him. He had never heard that one before but said Quinten was right they did look like boobs. Then gave him a high five. I guess his fixation has started already.

Mixed emotions

Chris and I have been talking about going on a little vacation sans kids. We have never gone anywhere except camping, with little adventures. We talked about Mexico but I can't leave my babies for that long yet. So we decided on Las Vegas. I'm excited to go but also sad to leave my kids for 5 days. I haven't left them yet except when I was having them. I know Chris thinks I'm nuts but I'm still nursing Spencer (sorry if that is too much info for some people) and he is my last baby so this is a big deal for me. I don't expect many to understand but I know some will. I know this will be good for us to get away without the kiddos, but I'm still a Mom who's life revolves around her kids. At least I have 2 months to get myself ready.

A lost treasure

I was feeling some what motivated today so I tackled the junk cupboard. Everyone has one right? Well I'm glad I did because I found an untouched $25 Starbucks card. I'm sure the barista in the drive thru thought I was nuts. I acted as though I had one the lottery. Well the coffee lottery at least. It's been a great day so far. The kids have been pretty good today and then coffee that I didn't have to pay for all while listening to Christmas music. It's been good.

Get ready

I'll be changing my background more often now that there are some really cute Christmas ones to choose from. And if you know me you will know I have a hard time making a decision. And now that I figured out how to change to font color(I must not have scrolled down far enough the last time I tried) that will be changing too.
I've not always been a fan of pink. For awhile I would not wear pink. Now as I become more girly I'm liking it. So I'll start off with a festive pink background.

How is your weekend going? We got a lot accomplished yesterday in the way of Christmas shopping. Thanks to my parents for taking care of Taylor and Quinten. Most appreciated. Only a few little things left. We've all got Christmas jammies. Even Chris got into the spirit, well sort of. His are green so it counts. I love being on top of things. Who knew I could be organized. Now to get the Christmas cards addressed and then start the baking. And can't forget decorating. I think tomorrow might be a good day for that.

Hope all is well with all the blog readers. Don't forget to drop us a line so we can pop by blogs we don't know about.

The crib....

is now fixed. On the railing that goes down there is a push sticker. It makes sense that it should be on the outside as to see it. Well when Chris originally put the crib together he put the hardware on backwards which means the push sticker faces into the crib. I was unaware of this so when I lowered Spencer's crib quite a few months ago I put it back together with the push sticker facing out. It appears as though we were lucky that the rail didn't come crashing down. So long story the crib is now fixed. And it might seem as though it was my fault when actually I think it might be a certain someones. :) Or maybe a combined effort.

It's official

We've got a walker on our hands. Last night Spencer got up to 8 steps and today all he's been doing is walking, falling and getting back up to start it all over again.. Yeah Spencie! Way to go!

13 month old hulk

How is it that a 13 month, and not a big one at that, can break a crib. I think he has tried to climb it too manytimes and has pushed one of the important parts out. And I can't screw it back in. Hopefully Chris can fix it tonight, or we'll be sleeping in the same bed as Spencer. And of course the play pen is at my parents. Could be a restless night.

And the story continues

The poop story that is. We were already to go this morning, everyone was dressed even not just in jammies. I went to grab Spencer and his diaper was half off and poop was spread over his blankets. If it's not one kid it's another. Hopefully it was an accident and we don't have another Quinten poop fascination kid, on our hands.
Other than that our day has been pretty good.

First sick day

We caved and let Taylor stay home today because we thought she was sick enough to do so. Once the medicine kicked in she ready to play. But being the tough parents we are ;) she had to spend the morning laying down on the couch and the afternoon in her bed. All we heard was how bored she was. I guess next time she'll want to go to school. Staying home sick is not fun and games. Although I think that's what she was hoping for. And next time we'll probably do what so many parents before us have done. Send her off unless there is puke or other unmentionable grossness.
Hope your Monday is finding you in fine form. On to Tuesday.

Halloween post

My failed attempt at face painting. Needed better paints and a 3 year old to sit still.

I guess I should put up some pictures from halloween. We didn't take a lot. I find I get too caught up in getting the right pictures instead of enjoying our time as a family. The kids had a ton of fun, the weather was beautiful. I can't remember a halloween where jackets weren't needed. Spencer even got into it. He liked sampling what the other 2 got. Thanks to my Dad for coming to hand our candy out so that we could go trick or treating as a family.
