Sort of like a monsoon storm.
So I'm trying to catch up on all our latest & greatest.......and not so greatest.......happenings of the past month.
Speaking of monsoons, this guy appeared in our pool after one came through....
He lived in our pool for almost a week!
The kids named him Mr. T.
Then the day after I took these pictures we found him belly up in the jacuzzi.
Poor Mr. T.
We buried him next to Hammy in our growing pet cemetary.
Marlee & her friend, Steph, made the JV Volleyball team.
I had nothing to do with these poses.
Mars also got her braces off. Woo hoo!!!
Caroline turned 3 months.
And, my little angel baby consistently sleeps 11 hours straight at night!!!
She's a little demanding during the day, but hey! I'll take a decent night's sleep any day!
She's very social, and wants our eye contact all the time. She loves to talk to us, which is so cute I can hardly stand it!
She loves her baths, loves chewing on her fists, and hates tummy time.
She also screams at the top of her lungs when Gus or Zane gets in her face too much. It's hilarious!
I'm so glad I had this baby! I'm having so much fun with her. Every morning I'm so excited to get her out of her crib & see her happy little face!
Brian took the kids to the lake before school started.
And here's some news.........we got rid of 6 of our kittens!
Took them to a shelter.
Long story that I don't feel like typing out right now.
We kept one. The crippled one. She has hind legs that look like they're backwards. I'm not kidding. I knew she'd probably be put to sleep if we didn't keep her. We always liked her the most anyway. She was the tamest, probably because she was the one Gus could always catch since she couldn't run away. She learned to put up with the harrassment I guess.
Then, we finally had our Mommy cat spayed before she could get knocked up again. Whew!
I finally finished this wall in my living room.....
It's not easy getting anything accomplished with a baby, so this was a big deal for me.
We got a Bumbo.
Caroline's not sure what she thinks of this.
Do you think Gus loves his baby sister, or what?
Jake is in a 'obsessed with scary movies' phase.
He made the other kids watch "The Sixth Sense" while Brian & I were out one night, and now Zane & Gus want to sleep with us every night.
Thanks. A. Lot.
After a nice little hiatus, I'm back to work doing headshots for Brian's office, and wondering how in the Hell....en Keller I'm going to keep up with everything.
Marlee got her driver's permit! Look out!
The annual Garn & Mason pool party went off without a hitch.
Super fun as usual.
Max with his BFF Noah.
Mars helped out with the dunk tank.
Caroline sported her new bikini.
Does it get any cuter? I mean really!
We got a Mac.
And Gus has been practicing for Halloween.
He says that this will be his Halloween costume........whatever it is.
Now on to September!
