Been a VERY busy, but productive day today. I did what I do every Labor Day weekend-clean house. With the craziness of going on vacation, and then school starting right away, and August being the craziest month of the year, my house is always in need of a deep clean by the time Labor Day rolls around. And I normally have time, because it is a long weekend. So today I have stripped every bed and washed sheets, vacuumed the whole house, dusted every room, caught up laundry, mopped, and put up some fall decorations. Now the rest of the weekend I may actually get to relax a bit and maybe even get caught up on some blogging and picture uploading. 🙂

Potty Training Update

SOO proud of our boy today! He has been doing really good staying dry at home/Nana’s/Grammy’s in big boy underwear, so I decided that I would let him wear them to church today. This was his first “outing” in underwear. I came prepared, with 3 or 4 changes of underwear and shirts, and made sure his teachers knew to take him often. He stayed dry the WHOLE time, and the rest of the day!! Yay Jack!! Now, I have GOT to get him some more underwear :).

Surprise Party!

Last night we went to some friend’s house for a surprise 30th birthday party for our friend Brian. I’m not sure how much of a surprise it was, but I think everyone had a good time. 🙂 When we get all together, we have SO many little kids running around, so it is a bit like a zoo :). 

Enjoying some birthday cake!


Sweet little Grey, the youngest member of our bunch (although not for long!)


All these sweet smiling kiddos….

Happy Birthday Brian!
