Party of 5

Coming in April 2015.

This is why the blog has been severely neglected.
I am growing a human and apparently its life goal is for me to remain face down in the couch...
I'm working to get through the last month of pictures and getting updates posted soon!
Check below this post for the slow coming entirety of October...

This morning I woke up to the sound of the loudest crash and screaming.  I rushed upstairs and opened Quinn's door-  I'm glad I heard him crying and saw him right away or I would have assumed he was crushed.  He opened all the drawers of his dresser and then climbed up to get a bank off the top.  Well the whole thing flipped over.  It got him on the leg pretty good.  At first I didn't know if it was broken but it was just a dent.  I bet he is going to have a pretty sore leg and a bad bruise for a while.  I texted Justin and asked him how far into his drive he was--- because he had to come back and make sure Quinn's leg wasn't broken and stand his dresser back up.  This was all before 6 in the morning.  Quinn and I had a long talk today about NEVER climbing on things and how if that was his head instead of his leg he could have died or would have had to live in a hospital forever.  He was definitely scared.  This could have ended very badly.

We of course had plenty of time to get ready for school after our eventful morning.  October already- sometimes the days are long but I guess the weeks and months are passing quickly!

Tonight for AWANA it was crazy sock night.  Quinn doesn't really have any crazy socks- most don't even show above his shoes.  We raided Justin's drawer and picked out some argyle socks.  Quinn really loves going to AWANA.  He likes memorizing his verses, playing the games, and participating in the themes every week!

m&m Madness

Back to school for another week!

We got Quinn off to school and I was going about my morning when I got the weekly kindergarten newsletter...

We are completely and totally m&m free in this house- a recall notice on m&m's from our specific Kroger due to peanut contamination has solidified that decision.  Kindergarten is also the first time he's away from me eating food so we have come up with a new set of guidelines.  I have always told him he's never allowed to eat any chocolate anywhere but home.  I emailed his teacher and said that is isn't allowed to touch or eat m&m's and that I would provide an alternative.  I rushed out to Kroger to pick up some Skittles for him to use instead.  This was about my 47th trip to Kroger in the last week.  Justin says I'm obsessed.  I heart Kroger.  Quinn will be safely counting Skittles tomorrow in school- hopefully they aren't using brown in their sorting... purple is close enough.

Slow Sunday

Today was kind of slow moving.

Last night we went to help Justin's friend move a couch.  Well- Justin helped him... the rest of us just rode along.  On the way home we saw a magical Texas sunset and then Madden proudly announced that he peed in his diaper.  I said- Madden you don't wear diapers.  (He hasn't for like 6 months.)  He said- Well, then I peed in my carseat.  Excellent.  Saturday night sounded like a good time to wash the carseat covers.

Today we got up to go to church and had soaking wet car seat covers.  By the time we got everything dried and reinstalled it was way late.  We got bagels and went to Kroger.  Somewhat of a successful day.

This afternoon we had a major focus on getting straightened up around here.  Quinn is pretty good at fixing his bed and making sure his room is in order.  There isn't much in his room so it shouldn't be too hard.  I liked how he left me a note on his bed- Good After Noon.

I also had to tackle my wardrobe from yesterday.  The clothes were easy enough- I just threw them rightttt in the washer.  The shoes were another beast altogether.  I had to undo the laces and take out the insides.  Lots of mud and lake stuff.  I washed them in the {new, beautiful, shiny} washer and they came out looking pretty good.  I wonder how much mud is now caked inside of the washer hoses.

Today I did an obstacle race thing with my bootcamp/church friends.  It wasn't at all like a race- we all waited for each other and did everything together.  Beside us being in a big group everyone there had to do lots of stopping and waiting to get over all the obstacles... but it was SO much fun and I am glad I have this group of girlfriends to do these things with!

And we're off

All done! Celebrating with our cool new glasses.
We went to lunch after and had a great day all around!

Football Friday

Mark it down for posterity.  Today I let Quinn wear soft clothes to school.  I had gotten him some new gym type clothes when I did his back to school shopping.  I have set out a gym outfit three other times but I just couldn't do it.  Today was the day.

This pretty much sums it up.

Another Friday, another Chick-fil-A walk to school for lunch.

After lunch Madden and I played outside for a little while and then went to Kohl's.

After school there was some classy stuff going on in the backyard.

After dinner it was time for Friday night lights again!
The Cowboys continued their undefeated streak.
