My husband asked my brother-in-law and his family over to watch the Redskins game today. He requested chili. He wanted Hard Time's Cincinnati Red. I said, "Hell, I can make that!" If you live in the area, you know how absolutely YUMMY Hard Time's is. Well I found a recipe off Food Network that is so damn good you could take a bath in it. My picky son licked it off his plate. If only I had a camera for that one! Next time, to make it more heart healthy, I'll try ground turkey.
Try it!

Pumpkin Painting

We finally got the pumpkins painted. LB loved it! I also found that old broken ice cube trays make wonderful paletes for your paint if you are so inclined. Just a fun mommy tip!Front side.Back side.

And a picture of BB watching her brother!

Look what the cat dragged in....

To my surprise, my husband turned up 24 hours early! Hooray for Daddy!!! The kids were so excited to see him. Now if you'll excuse me, I need to go get some snuggling in myself, now that he is done putting to bed Little Bear!

And so the countdown begins...

72 hours until my husbands return. I hope is flight is on time and he is home when he is supposed to be!
Also, for those of you so inclined... please keep my mom in your thoughts, she is in San Diego, and if you've been keeping up with the news, you'll know that the wildfires are on their way. Luckily Mom is on an island, but it's still scary for those of us who have never experienced that kind of situation before... I'm used to hurricanes, not wildfires!!!!!!!

Cox Farms

My Dad is here for the weekend, giving me a hand with the kiddos while my husband is still away. We took the kids to the Farm to attend another fall festival. This one has SLIDES! All kinds of slides. There was also hay stacks to climb, animals to investigate, apple cider to purchase, TONS of Kettle Corn (forgot to pick up some of that!), plus a hay ride with NO wait. Last weekends hay ride had a 30 minute wait, there was next to no wait because of the amount of wagons. LB loved it. BB had a great time too. As soon as my dad emails me his pictures from the event, I'll have shots from the haystack and the slide we rode together! We also got to pick out 3 pumpkins to take home with us, as part of our admission. They are too small to crave, so we are going to paint them. When we accomplish that project I'll post those pictures!
(Isn't that sweet. He gave her a kiss, and then proceeded to tell her "No, No, No Bibi!")

Well, this is the first week I've actually been to work, for 3/4 of it. Tuesday LB spiked a high fever at school, so I had to take him home. Thank goodness Poppa was able to stay with him. After missing practically all of last week, I had to be there. Oh, and did I forget to mention that after all that craziness the week before, it turned out Vivian did have pneumonia! Just a touch. What the hell does that mean? Just a touch? Anyhow, the Pediatrician said that the antibiotics she was on for the ear infection should clear it up... So because of BB pneumonia, I took LB in. They gave him antibiotics, steroids for the cough, and a new med for the nebbie that won't make him as CRAZY!
So here we are, back to school, with everyone feeling at least a bit better. Now my daughter doesn't want to drink. She only wants to eat. And I mean EAT! She was only getting cereal in the morning and evening. In order to get her to eat, her teachers have started to mix some cereal with her formula, to get fluids in her. So in honor of my daughters growing appetite. We started veggies the other night. Little Miss V LOVED peas and sweet potatoes. Holy Cow! You should see the look on her face when you eat something in front of her. She just watches and licks her lips. Too funny! Now that she is eating so much more, she is now pooping up a storm. I think she shat almost 7 times yesterday. Her poor hiney is so sore.
I'll have to post pictures of her eating soon.

Nana's Here

Nana came to visit to help me out while Mike is gone. We are in the final few weeks until he returns home.

We've been having fun! We went to a fall festival in Annapolis, with our friends. I'll post the pics when I get the chance!

Autumn weather has arrived FINALLY! My cutie girl gets to wear her Halloween getup, along with her ghost hat. Thanks Aunt Chrissy!

Potty Training Continues

LB has his first few pairs of underwear. We've been putting them over his diaper to get him used to the idea. He is very proud of them. We've got Cars, Shrek, and Thomas the Train undies! As you can see he only wanted to wear his undies today. I eventually got him clothed. After all, fall has finally come our way today.

5 months today

And aren't I cute?

Random Pictures

Just some random pictures to keep my honey-bunny up to date on his kiddos!

Sick Babies

Now I have two on the nebulizer. I'm hoping that I don't need a second machine. Then we really will have dueling nebbies! Baby girl has been sick since Sunday. This afternoon, LB was sent home with his asthma. Now I'll have both kids home tomorrow. I might actually get to work on Friday. Woohoo.

My lovely little daughter has discovered her toes. She lifts them up, examines them, and then uses them to roll from side to side. She has also blessed me with a viewing of her rolling over. She apparently is rolling over all the time at school. By the time we get home in the evening, playtime is at a minimum. I try to get her some good rolling time, but between dinner, nebbie, bath x 2, stories, there isn't much time to lay under the gym. Do I have pictures of this event? No. Bad Mommy, I know. I'm doing my best to keep a house running, work full time, and be a single mom all at the same time! October 26th can't come soon enough.
