Wow! Time flies when you're having fun. I'm not going to be able to catch-up traditional style, so we'll try something a little different....
*We finally broke down and bought a Wii! This has, in fact, taken up a big portion of our time! My favorite part so far has been making Miis of everyone in our extended families-both sides. It just cracks me up how much you can make those little people really look like someone! There are certain Miis who look especially like the real person. These are-Haydn, Hutch, my mom, my dad, John, Alyssa, and James! It's also fun to watch Haydn actually beat John in some sports (:
*Haydn had a dentist appt, and has to have one tooth pulled (because there is a cavity around the filling) with a space-saver put in, and another cavity fixed, with possibly a pulpectomy (kinda like a baby root canal). Sheesh-you'd think that he either doesn't have good hygiene (he does), or we don't have routine dental care (we do). Bad genes, I guess.
*Hutch has been really into being a fireman, lately! He has even gone to the point of asking me to put his folder in his fire-trailer (a.k.a. his bookbag!) He also loves to play "Rachel Ray". This involves me making supper, and him pulling a chair into the kitchen and watching me pretend that I am Rachel Ray. His preschool teachers even mentioned that he plays it with Play Doh at school! ha.
*I was in charge of a Women's Day Retreat for church at the Granary. This place totally ROCKS, if you ever have the chance to go-go! We had the theme "Cheep"er Nesting- Cooking, Cleaning, and Cosmetics for less-with style. The day went off without a hitch. There was so much collaboration and I think that everyone had a great time! (I am glad that the planning part is over! I was a little nervous as to how it would turn out, but it did!)
*John and Nancy took the boys to the Apple Festival while I was there. They were oh-so-sweet as to bring me back The most delicious apple dumpling I have ever sunk my teeth into. Yum-o!
*Haydn has been doing a great job in Flag Football! He got 3 touchdowns in 2 games, and his team beat an undefeated team last week! He does such a great job, and I love watching him!
*Gwyneth is officially ALL OVER THE PLACE! She is getting so big, and ornery! She is starting to really cry when mommy leaves! Neither of the boys were like that. I hope that she'll get over it. Hopefully she isn't one of those kids I'm going to have to peel off my leg while she is crying the first day of preschool. I don't think I could do that!
*John went on the last dirtbike riding trip of the season with a bunch of guys. He had a super time at Wayne National Forest. He said that he didn't even fall! (I don't really let him tell me stories-I just let him go and pray that he doesn't get hurt!)
*John got a new (to us) car yesterday! Our escort was a good car to us, but it had over 160,000 miles on it! It was time for us to move on, but not before we took some pictures with it! John now has a 2007 Ford Fusion that is Dark Metallic Blue. He love love loves it!! It is his new grown-up car!
*And, Brian T. had surgery today to remove some more lymph nodes. Please keep him and his family in prayer at this time.
Have a super rest-of-the week!!! Enjoy the gorgeous leaves before they are all gone! I think we may try to get our annual fall pictures this weekend, if the weather cooperates!
