What a month.

We are celebrating a year of living in our new house, and all month we are celebrating the return of my parents!  13 of the past 15 years they have been gone in church service and it will be heavenly to have them back home!

CELEBRATION has spilled over into everything.  I have mixed halloween and celebrating together in my decor.  And of course I sprinkled rhonna's printables into everything.  

I want to catch up on each of the aspects of our lives, but for now, this will have to do.
And blogger is so much easier to use now, I love it!!

I guess it's time to write something

uch has happened.
life marches on.

*new baby is grown into a pre toddler.
*the new house is feeling a little more like home each month.

*the kids have stopped asking if we could move back home (every day).

*we have the holidays behind us, and summer on the horizon.
now the ice is broken, and i can take it from here.

august review

august went by in a flash. enzo is growing too fast. it's still really hot outside.
the day school began, we started looking for a house = more space!!
it was a whirlwind month. (on an editing note: smothiering should be smothering)

after school treat

we were sitting around the table the day after school started. i made a hawaiian punch icee and we were comparing red tongues.

alex: mom, you're pretty. and he smiles at me.
me: (gush. how sweet is this kid?)
alex: i'm glad you married dad.
me: awww, thanks, alex.

and then in true alex form, cocks his head to one side and he continues:

and you laugh a lot. and you laugh at dad. and i think dad is even funnier because of you. cuz if he had married another wife, maybe she wouldn't laugh at him. and maybe he would be stressed more, and then we would all be more stressed, and probably not laugh.

and everything would be different. we would look different. well, for sure adam and bailey cuz they look most like you. they would probably look like the other mom. and for sure we would all not be as happy.

and with that, he smiled and went back to his red slushie.

my heart melted.
and "after school treat" took on a whole new meaning.
