Sick boy

The past 2 weekends have looked like this:

The only good thing about an ear infection?

staying in jammies ALL DAY and snuggles...lots of snuggles!


Pumpkin Patch!

This past weekend, in between all of the puking, we went to the pumpkin patch!  Last year, Jack sat nicely in his stroller and it was a fun and relaxing time.  This year?  Not so much.  I mean, it was still fun, but it was def. not relaxing.  That's ok though!  That's just the stage of life we are in and I just have to prepare for it and make these memories with my babies!

This first picture cracks me up...this slide is serious business.  Last year, Reese FLEW out of it.  This year, Jack face-planted.  Of course he got right up and showed no signs of being traumatized.

I kind of love that we come to a pumpkin patch and there is all this fun stuff to do, and yet my kids want to swing on a swing they have at home.

This year, our sweet niece Coraline came with us and yall, I mean, she is just the cutest thing ever.
Oh man, she is sooo stinkin cute!!!

I love this pic of Jack and Aunt B or Beeeeeee as brother says!

Another fun thing is the Corn Crib!  Jack was not a fan at first, but once he found out he could throw it?  He was all about it!

Love this boy!

Sweet girl!

Seriously.  A tractor.  The boy was in heaven!

By the time we made it to the actual pumpkin patch, my camera started dying so I didn't get too many pictures.  Also, it was hot! Kids were whining! But, I did get a few good ones.

"Look mama, I jump soo high!"

I would have loved smiling faces, but tops of heads are better than nothing. 

Love this picture!  So carefree and happy!

We can't wait to go back next year!


Parenting badge

I earned one last night.

Know which one? Vomiting.

The kiddos were supposed to be spending the night with B's parents. We get a call about 7 saying Reese had gotten sick. She said she was all better so we decided to wait and see if anything else would happen....
Duh, it happened again. Right after she had her medicine. She still said she felt better but we decided to go get her. Thankfully my in-laws kept Jack because I was worried we might be up late. Ha. HAHAHAHA.

She was good until 12 when she got sick again. Then again at 1:30. And then every 15-30 mins until 4 AM. She was so pitiful and would say "mama I'm gonna throw up one more time" and then apologize after each time. Bless her heart!

Of course she was up and ready to go at 7:45 this morning. If you're doing the math I basically slept from 4:30-7:45. Yippee!

Luckily, she's been fine all day and even though she hasn't really been hungry today, she's back to normal. We had planned a trip to the pumpkin patch and Reese's MO tends to be "get sick when there are important plans/events" (strep at Christmas every year, seizure on vacation, etc) so I was happy we got to keep our plans. I will post on the pumpkin patch later.

Who would have thought she was running on about 5 hours of sleep?


It's that time....

I know, it's only October.  But, considering it takes me about a month to get a good picture with 2 children looking, smiling and just looking cute, I need to start early.

One place that always has the CUTEST cards is Tiny Prints.  They have adorable colors, fonts, picture layouts, etc.  Seriously, there is something for everyone.  My favorite are the Christmas Cards .

I love that there are so many options with different shapes and sizes for pictures. They have designs for newlyweds, newborns, and new puppies!

Here a couple of cards I thought were cute from Tiny Prints!

I can't wait to decide which card I'm going to use!

The fair!

One of my favorite things about fall is the fair!  It is even more fun with kiddos!  Especially a kiddo who loves to ride all the rides!  I wish I would have taken my big camera, but let's be honest it's so convenient to use my iPhone.

We actually went to 2 fairs...this picture is the only one I have from the Lee County Fair {which was pretty pitiful compared to Montgomery's fair} but my Reesie didn't know the difference and had a blast!

Obviously, I did a better job at documenting our time at the Mongtomery fair!
{I have to tell you, this roller coaster ride was HILARIOUS.  It was so jerky and Reese had that scared-excited look on her face when she went by the first couple of times.  We were crying.  Also?  The girl behind her {who hacked like she had whooping cough} was equally as scared-excited.  It was my favorite part of the night.}

Where is Jack, you ask?  Locked up in his cage stroller.  Once he got out at the Petting Zoo, that was the end of the stroller {and thus ending our fair experience ;)}
 {I mean.  MY BABY!!! He's so grown.  Notice he was locked in the stroller last year too...maybe next year, buddy!}

He had absolutely no fear of the animals in the Petting Zoo.
{oh sure, just eating out of his hands.  he tried to kiss a bull too.  YES, KISS A BULL.}
{I was there too!}

{He was pretty much being a pill at this point...glad you can't tell that!}
{Also, he has since had a haircut.}

My favorite part of the fair?


{late night} bookworm

When I leave the bathroom light on {"mama, when it's dark, I just can't think straight enough"} for her to go to sleep, she loves to sneak in there and read her books.  It's just so cute that I can't get onto her.

Plus, I would hate for her to not be thinking straight...enough.
