This has been haunting me

I never go this long without posting. I just haven't felt up to it. Now on to a bunch of random things.

I thought that school would start and all of the sudden I would have all the time in the world to do whatever I want. Yeah, not so much. I have been so busy. I don't know why. (although my house has definitely been cleaner, which is SO nice)

I am loving the fall weather...this is by far my favorite time of year. My heart beats fast just thinking about it. Football, pumpkin foods of all kinds, the chill in the air, hooded sweatshirts, school...I could go on and on. Dad...Costco's pumpkin pies are in. It makes me miss you like crazy. Cortney and I met in the fall...this time of year always makes me remember those days. Fall feels like falling in love to me.

I wish I had a wreath for my door.

I have been loving dropping off both my boys every morning. It is so weird to come home to a quiet empty house. I am loving LOVING my little Henry. He is so awesome. I need to get some video because all he does all day is climb up my little stairs and then ROLL down them. It is hilarious. He is getting into everything, my other boys never did that this early.

I am really missing sleeping in. I wake up now around 8:30...I know all you moms that are up at 5:45 with your kids are amazed that 8:30 is getting up early. So what I like to sleep in. I am not a morning person...just ask my sisters, my roommate in college or Cortney. Last year almost everyday Rob would climb in bed with me and we would sleep the morning away. I miss that.

I can't wait for everyone to see FIONA AND HENRY's Halloween costumes. YOU WILL DIE. They are so cute. I don't know how Sam does it because Cali and I always want to buy Fi and Hens matching sure gets expensive, if I had boy/girl twins I don't know if I would be able to resist. I guess you get the blessing of being TOO exhausted to shop. hahaa.

On Monday Oliver was awarded the "Geneva Giant of the week" award...
The award said he got it for being a good sport and being responsible. He got it in front of the whole school and then they took a picture of him and the other winners (he said there were 3-5 other winners ??? who knows). Then they hung the pictures up in the school for the week. He said to me "now you finally believe me that I am good in school!" hahaa.

I am so proud of him. He was pretty darn proud himself. He got a free meal at the village inn and at the brick oven.

When I was little I never won things like this. Every time awards were handed out I was SHOCKED that I didn't get one. I guess I probably wasn't ever that good.

I took some really bad pictures of Henry the other day when he got out of the tub because he looked just like a kewpie doll. I hate when I try to take pictures because they always suck. Oh well. He had a toothbrush and would not look at me when I would finally get him to look up it was for one second.

I love this guy...I am so glad I have him.

That's all. Hopefully now I will be able to post more. I hate when it has been too seems impossible to start up again.

Hehe! I love that your longest non-blogging time is a week! You have the best blog because everytime I am wanting an excuse not to work, I just check to see who has posted and you usually have. Thank you for all of the many distractions!

By the way, your children are beautiful

Fall is my favorite time of year, too. I have been on the hunt for a fall luck, yet.

So glad you are back. I was missing your posts.

I ran past your house the other day, and I was tempted to stop by for a chat, but then I realized it might be too early :) Plus I was stinky and sweaty.

I would love to get together - I am so sad I missed our sisters lunch.

Samantha said...

Cali told me what costumes you got. and it was funny because I ALMOST bought those last year. I even thought about getting them this year! haha we must be sisters.

I love it when you post.

I was always shocked when I didn't get awards in Elementary School too. They never notice the perfect ones ;)

"Fall feels like falling in love to me."
Ashley--that is an amazing line and it totally reminds me of the opening scenes of "You've Got Mail" ... bouquets of sharpened pencils :).
Henry is beautiful and squeezable and looks EXACTLY like a Kewpie doll.

Henry DOES look like a Kewpie doll!!!! I couldn't figure out what he reminded me of - HE'S got the BIGGEST eyes ever!
Congrats, Mr. Oli-bur - that's awesome to get awarded such a special honor!!!!!!!! SWEET!

Keep writing, keep taking photos - LOVE to watch these g-babies grow!
