I really do want to keep writing on this dang blog. I just can't give it up, but for some reason it's been so hard to find the time to sit and yak about my days. I guess because right now they are all semi-similar. Though I know little things happen each day that are special and different, it's hard to put those things down on paper.

Like Natalie wanting to be Hannah Montana for school so we braided the heck out of her hair last night and sent her to school with the cutest crimpy mane. She was adorable, and it made me love her that much more and also see that she is growing up so big!

And Brady laughing at himself so hard that he couldn't stop and then all of us were laughing and watching this laughing maniac stand there and grin and giggle and just be merry. He is the happiest kid sometimes, the rest of the time he is a ball full of screaming. In any case I just can't seem to get enough of him, and he knows it. He has become completely aware of my love affair with his little piggies and thighs, and I probably need to hide it better before I scar him for life!

And me being addicted, I mean ADDICTED to garaging and thrifting. I can't stop going and looking, even if I don't get anything, I still love the hunt! Though my stash of 50 cent onesies is growing exponentially and not a baby in site! Though I am quite prepared for any unexpected showers I need to attend. Well, in theory I can gift them, I don't know if I will be able to let them go since they are all stripey, and I am a sucker for all things stripey on little chubby babies!

Oh, and I get headaches probably 4 times a week. They start behind my left eye, work down to the base of my head and neck then down into my stomach and make me nauseous. It's loads of fun. On the nights I don't get the headaches the kids and I have been going straight out to play after getting Natalie from school. Some nights we don't even make it inside until Daddy comes home. Those are the best afternoons. Relaxing and fun and QUIET. I do love reading outside. I am currently reading Wicked, and I kinda like it! It was strange at first, but it's much better now.

Hmmmm...what other randomness can I write about? Keith is getting geared up for a quick little visit from his cousin, Lincoln, whom I have never met, but am very excited to finally meet! He and Keith were best friends as children and still talk pretty regularly on the phone. Keith also gets to go to his brother, Ryan's, graduation in December. Which means he gets to go to Oregon and we have to stay here. Bleh. If only we had a teleportation machine, and it was free.

Oh, I am excited for Christmas. Maybe I can start posting about my decorations or something. I am itching to get them out! As it is I am trying my hand at "decorating" for Fall. The house looks a bit more fall-like and it is fun to have a home to spruce up rather than an apartment.

All in all life is swell. We are happy and rolling along at a (too)brisk pace. Thanksgiving is coming and the menu is being ironed out. I have decided to make an army's worth of food for the four of us. We would love to have guests, but I don't think anyone is available! Nothing like the holidays to make you miss your family!

Wow, this got really long, really fast. Oh well! How's that for an update! Next on my list is to prettify my blog. The header is really bugging me, but I haven't gotten around to putting photoshop on the new computer. Anywho, yeah. If you made it through all that Kudos to you!

Tell Nat I am dying to see hte Hannah Montana hair. I bet she was adorable.

We all get in ruts--at least I do as far as blogging. I have great intentions, but then I spend the day planning Jake's preschool fall party, or Cole throws up all over the carpet, twice, and by the end of the day blogging just isn't at the top of my list of things to do.

We so wish you were coming in December. If I win the lottery I'll buy y'all tickets to fly out. We miss you tons.

That stinks about the headaches. I hope they stop.

I love decorating for Christmas. I can't wait until day after Thanksgiving, that's when everything goes up!

Thanks for the update!
Maybe you need to get your eyes re-checked, since the headaches start from the same place. . . .
