"Little Punkins" at the Pumpkin Patch

We made our annual trip to the patch on Sunday. What a great way to spend my birthday. Out in the fall air with my hubby and our beauties! The girls were very excited to find their pumpkins and pick apples. Although they still were feeling pretty crummy...yes I am one of those that probably should stay home and not spread germs, but the fresh air always seems to to everyone good. In my defense, we were outside, not in any type of confined space.
Honey Acres still had plenty of apples to pick (and eat) and we ate plenty. I think by the end, we may have eaten more than we brought home. The triplets were even double fisting them. Chloe had a blast using the apple picker. She was a pro this year.

Happy Birthday breakfast for Mommy

Happy Birthday to Mommy.
Chloe woke with lots of hugs and kisses for Mommy on Sunday morning. So sweet. Followed by..."Mommy, do you want birthday donuts for breakfast today?" Who could resist that? Not me. I said of course (even though...I hate donuts.) The Beauties were in full sugar high and loving the junk food for breakfast morning to celebrate Mommy's day. Matt even brought me a Java House coffee...to counter act the crispy creams. Mmmmm Java House. It was a fabulous birthday breakfast with my Beauties and my man.

Sick days and polished nails

I have to admit...there are a few fun things about sick days...
Snuggles for one.
Hugs for two.
Not to mention number three...pretty polished fingers and tootsies.
We started a new tradition...polishing the nails while we snuggle up to the Pingo movie.
Such fun. Although...I hope this nasty flu bug leaves our home soon. We are sick of being sick.

I am the coolset Mommy ever

Before we decided to go for some fresh-air therapy.

Seems like the fresh air therapy is working wonders.

I think she looks beautiful...but sick...not so much.

Playing in the leaves makes any cold symptom better.

We even chased "evil kitty" for a bit.

Miss Chloe has been home from school the last two days. She has a sore throat and a cough that makes her sound like a momma seal. She has been running a fever on and off since Saturday, which is the main reason for her absence from school. They advise to keep kids home until they have been fever free for more than 2 hours. She probably could have gone. However, I am not going to be "that Mom" the one who sends her kid to school sick, infecting all the other kids with their icky germs. So...she stayed home.
I will also add, that when I was a kid, staying home meant that you laid on the couch or in bed and that you acted...well...sick. If you were well enough to run around...you were well enough to go to school.
That being said...the beauties have been stir crazy. So have I. A bad case of the "cabin-fevers." Due to the unseasonably warm weather, it has been in the seventies the last two days, we escaped to the yard yesterday...
shhh. Don't tell.

Day 5

It's day number five of Daddy's vacation.
He is in snowy Colorado. In the mountains. Hunting Elk. Sleeping in a tent. No running water. No electricity. Sleeping bag. Campfire cooked meals. Pooping outside in a hole and covering it up. Gross. I DO NOT call that a vacation.
The Beauties and I are doing okay. We miss you lots Daddy! Hope you are having a great time.

Happy Birthday Uncle Chaddy

Happy Birthday to YOU

Better a day late...I am not keeping up very well these days!
It was great to chat yesterday! The Beauties had a great time singing to your voicemail.
Go Dale Jr!

Happy Birthday "little" brother!
We love you!

Cake making...and party time with Poppy

This is the cake when it was finished. There is a lot of love in this cake Poppy. Your grandbeauties worked very hard making it and then decorating...oh yeah and trying to eat it.

Rice Crispy treats. This was the first time I have ever made them...and probably the last as well. What a mess! No one told me to grease up my hands before touching them.

Homecoming parade

We did the annual Homecoming parade Friday night. It was a brisk fall evening downtown. My kind of night. The Beauties were bundled and cozy and as always had a great time watching. Chloe was a bit sad though. Her bestie Olivia was sick with a fever and was unable to make it this year. We missed you gals!

Happy Feet and Panties

Things are rolling along around here.
The Beauties have discovered tv.
Happy Feet is now showing at our house. It begins every 2 hours or so. They LOVE this movie. They watch it and watch it and watch it. They could care less about Elmo anymore, they just want the "pingos" The know the movie forward and back and know all the parts and tell each other what is coming. If you haven't seen it, you should. It is really cute and the message is great too. Mumble is different and proves that it is okay to be unique and different.

Potty training has been very successful. The Beauties are in big girl panties from when they wake until nite-nite time. We have had very few accidents. We even went to Grammy and Papas yesterday and no one had to go on the way. I am so proud of them...and myself too! I keep thinking about all the money we will save on diapers...however...that money will now go towards the water bill. Why, you ask...because the beauties find flushing the potty on the very top of their "fun things to do" list.

Oh and the gate...the one that kept them out of the kitchen...broke...I am ready to buy another one. After 2 weeks without it, I have realized how much I hate them having free reign of that room. They get in the drawers, climb the table, open the refrigerator and the freezer, not to mention take things out of fore mention appliances. They scoot chairs to the sink and play in the water (another new trick that will increase the water bill) and don't forget my personal favorite, putting the kitty food into the water dish. They it swells up as in absorbs the water. Nasty.

In a nutshell...that has been life for the last week. I'm tired.
