Checking in... But just quickly!!

Its been a whirlwind kind of time around here. With fall comes birthdays (both of my boys), cubscouts, back to school, and just normal everyday business. Only it seems ours has been mulitplied!!

This past weekend we went to Luray Caverns and went camping, all 5 of us in a tent, even miss boo who was on her very first camping trip and LOVED it!! We went with Uncle Mike and Aunt Liz, the kids adore them!! I think they are quite smitten with the kiddos too, infact I know they are!! We have lots of pics to post, I just don't have the time right this moment but soon I promise!!

I also have started christmas shopping here and there, Yes I know its not quite October but with my christmas list its not to early for me to start, I am actually doing quite well. I can't wait to take some pics and show off some of the homemade gifts I am making. And I do believe the hubs has some hm gifts on his list planned as well.

The garden is finished, I do still have some brussells sprouts out there and am waiting for the first frost to harvest them, and maybe a cabbage, and some peppers here and there then its done for the season. Of course I have big plans for next years garden already, but I have all winter to work on that!!

On my needles right now is a new project which will also be a christmas gift. I honestly have so many hm gifts planned I really need to buckle down and get them done!!

Ok thats my quick chaotic update, time to swap the laundry, and get back to work in my kitchen!!

Have a great evening!!

Back to business...9/19/2011

Its Monday and there is lots to do around here today! The house is a complete and total mess. I really need to be more organized. I'm working my way there but its a work in progress!! Its good to be back to business though, what a busy weekend we had. Scouts, church, visting with grandparents and great grandparents, busy busy busy!! Even though its Monday and the weekend is over, today doesn't look to be much better in the being busy dept.

On the agenda for today is:
Strip beds, wash bedding, remake beds
Work on grocery lists
Clip coupons and match sales
Regular pick up and cleaning of the kitchen, livingroom, bathroom, bedrooms....

I've already got the laundry going, so hopefully I will get it all done in one day, then its on to stripping the beds.

Before long it will be time to get lunch going for little miss, after lunch she will take her nap then while she is down for her nap I hope to get the bulk of my cleaning and straightening done!! Not sure if I will get to everything on my list today but I hope it make some kind of headway at least!!

Not sure about dinner tonight, Its a toss up as to what we have on hand, I didn't get any shopping done this weekend so I'll have to see what we have available. Hmmm????

Well I am off to get back at it!! Have a great day!!

Sunday morning 9/18/2011

The house is quiet, except for the hum of the dishwasher which I forgot to run last night. :(
The boys stayed the night with my mom, and baby girl and the hubs are still snoozing away.
I am ready for this cold virus to leave our home. My little girl has been hit with it as well, which in itself isn't pleasent or at least I think she has, but add to that she is cutting teeth too, these teeth are taking their everloving sweet time to come all the way through and it makes for an unhappy time for everyone. She is suffering with a super runny nose, she is super-super drooly and she's having a hard time breathing on top of it all so you can imagine how much fun it is. :(

Last night she was so congested and drooly that she coughed and gagged herself which caused her dinner to erupt out of her, it was the very first time she had ever vomitted so she was extremely upset. We ended up changing her out of her clothes in the tub then using the sprayer part of the shower to clean out the tub..Except she hates the shower and is scared of the sprayer so not only is she upset that she has thrown up, now she is screaming because Daddy is spraying out the tub. We get her pretty cleaned off and the tub completely cleaned out then we ran her a bath with bubbles, as soon as he put the sprayer away she was fine, I let her play in the warm bubble bath for a good long while, hoping it would help break up all that yuck in her sinuses. She was a happy miss after that, she loves her bubble bath!!

I am guessing the warm bath helped with the sinuses because she was able to sleep last night, infact as soon as we got her out of the bath, dried, lotioned, diapered and dressed, she was out. Infact she is still sleeping!! I hope she sleeps off whatever is ailing her. My momma always said that when your sick you need to sleep, your body heals itself when you sleep, so I hope she gets plenty of sleep so she will feel better!!

I'm going to go get ready for church!! I hope you all have a wondeful Sunday!!!

Yep, I'm sick, ugh.
This little ditty started with Brady telling me it hurt when he swallowed but once he got a drink it was fine. A few days later he is hoarse and coughing and then Kara starts sneezing and with a runny nose, now I can't breathe, the head and face hurt from pressure and I feel like I have been up for 4 days and just generally feel blah. UGH I HATE BEING SICK!! Oh well tis the season I guess.
