One of THOSE weeks...

I can officially label last week as a "BLUR". It is one of those inevitable weeks where everything will hit at once and when it is over you sigh in relief. My car was in the shop for six days so I was stuck at home. Jack cut 3 teeth last week and is currently getting the fourth one now. Keegan is still keeping on with the 5:15-5:30 wake-up call. This leads to lots of whining, crying and tantrums before naptime. It also leads to very tired, emotional mother who tries to keep it together. At the end of the week I took Jack to the doctor for his check up to find that he is wheezing from his cold and needs breathing treatments. Well...note to self...baby who has teeth coming in does not want a mask on their face. The doctor is also sending Jack to an oral specialist to check out how everything functions in his mouth to see if that is the reason why is he is not eating. I claimed it as "one of those weeks".

SO....this week gave me a few lemons...I had to make lemonade....

Since I could not make the pumpkin patch playdate, because my car was in the shop, my friend Stacie and I loaded up the kids on Friday and went to nearby church that had lots of pumpkins. We had a great time chasing after our kids. Jack gets the star for the best picture and Keegan gets half of one since he never smiled for me.








On Saturday, Jonathan went to the A&M game and I loaded up the boys and headed out for the day to hang out with Christine and Zach or "I-Teen and Mac". (who knows) Our first stop was at Corey's garage sale. I heard she has some really great stuff so I rushed to get there only to find out that a woman bought all the good stuff 5 minutes before I came. However, she had a shabby chic desk that was perfect for my entry way, sugar and flour jars, a toy for Keegan and a hair straightener! Yeah! It was very much worth it. The rest of the day we hung out at I-Teens and Mac's house for naps and such. Before we left, we spent some time with the Altic family enjoying one of their last Saturday's before Judah comes. Oh Bayou Woods...I miss you dearly.
(don't pay attention to everything on it...i am still working on it!!)

Oh I love it!...the table that is not the week you had. My favorite picture is the one of K pulling J and looking back at him. That is one that should be framed.
I hope this week is better. Did you get the boogie wipes?

grammar error. I left out the comma after "is"
Should have read.

Oh, I love it!...The table that is, not the week you had.

I am blown away by how big Keegan looks in these pictures. He has grown up so much!
Adorable pictures.
And I'm wishing I would have drove down to Houston for Corey's garage sale. Best garage sale in the world probably. :-)
