Red sky at night, sailors delight. Red sky at morn, sailors be warned. It's truly beautiful! God was painting that day...the brush strokes of his paint brush!
I like how this one is wispy. This one is by far my favorite...I can't pin point exactly what I really like about it but it speaks to me.
Just wanted to share...feeling very thoughtful...taking a look into myself...life....things...ah! I know the word I'm looking for, thanks for stumbling along with me...I was looking for the word Introspective...that's what I've been feeling lately.

Eli was having so much fun swinging around the tree and trying to climb it, thankfully he didn't get far! Smile my man!

Look at that handsome face! He loves his Auntie and I love him! The hours I had with him were not nearly enough time. Samuel and his daddy learning some tunes.
Samuel cracked me up...he would go up to Eli for like 5 minutes and pet/rub the top of his head. He was just trying to be ever so gentle and sweet, Eli however just ignored him. Samuel is 14 months and he weighs the same and is a smidge shorter than Eli and Eli is 24months. This just cracks me up...I have itty bittys.

I'm sure you have it figured out by now. It's pumpkin guts! I am attempting to make my own pumpkin what ever...pumpkin bars, pumpkin pie, pumpkin muffins (I'm starting to sound like Bubba Gump here). Well you get the idea. I got it cooked today and tomorrow I will bag and freeze it after I make my boys a pie...gotta test it on someone...right!?!
Anyway, take care and have a great weekend!

Anyway, back to my story. I still had some kids to take to the bus stop and so I left Dru and Eli at home while I took them up the street. Eli was not happy with me...not in one itty bitty bit! Screamed and cried at me. After the boys get on the bus I wander my way home. I walked in and about died...of laughter that is.
I walked to something like this:
Except he had 3 plugs in his mouth and was sniffing from crying, he was THAT upset with me!!! Here he was doing this for fun and to be funny. What a cutie...if he had his way he'd have a plug (or two as we can see) in his mouth, and one in each hand and wherever else he could stash them on his person! He's been this way since he was born and could shove his own plug in his mouth at 1 or 2 months old!
On another note...Dru wasn't sick for very long. I think he got whatever Lee had last week or so...started out with a fever, bad headache, cold all over...he was sick for like half a day!! Same with Dru...I should have just drug the kid and then hauled him to my parents and had fun anyway...*HUGE EXASPERATED SIGH*
Thankfully, we were able to reschedule and should be going the end of October...everything...and I do mean everything is crossed here!!!

Today was one of THOSE days! A busy Saturday with soccer games through out the day. The hard thing about these kinds of days is when the times for the games are spread out. Especially when it comes to nap times. Hence the video with Eli. He was so funny he fell asleep that way and then what was even more hysterical was when I had to wake him up.
Well, off I go...it's WAY past my bedtime and I have church tomorrow and a Salmon bake for the church (GAG!) and then a b-day party for a nephew...BUSY! Does it EVER stop???

How about...You are my sunshine, my only sunshine...not your speed? Here's one...When I dip you dip (bounce with me folks)! Let's see...what about...hold on I'm thinking of one...wait for it. Ah! North...to Alaska! Nothing like hearing your hubby singing songs like that! Better yet...drop it like it's HOT! There's so many more but I'll spare you all and tell you the real song we will be singing here in a few months: All I want for Christmas is my two front teeth...
Last night around 10pm something or other Lee stumbled out of his room. This can't be good...he went to bed earlier that night because he didn't feel good. Had the whole headache and cold/shivers thing going. COOTIES!!! I am not ready for cooties yet this year...SO not ready for THAT! My answer to that is to run the sanitize cycle today on comforters and pillows and just about anything else I can shove in my washer. Although I have reservations about doing this. Here's why. It seems every time I do cootie patrol like that someone always gets sick right after that. I don't know why but it does. There are times I think it doesn't pay to clean...we are all healthy and no one is sick. Then I get this hair brained idea I should clean and before I know it we are all dropping like flies. So we'll see what happens here...I'm not holding my breath!
He came out handing me a tooth. Finally that tooth came out!!! Good Grief! I have been begging that child to let me pull it out all the way! He kept saying no with fear and panic in his eyes. I really have no idea why...don't suppose it could be from the last time he asked me to pull his other front tooth out (it kinda hurt when it didn't' come out). I digress. So now Lee has two missing front teeth and his smile has changed completely. I've said this before and I'll say it again...one tooth falls out the rest just fall out around you. Out of nowhere teeth start getting loose and just fall out...it gets crazy!
Here is my toothless baby boy...he and his daddy can both say they sung the infamous Christmas song about front teeth!
Update: My friend's niece has been diagnosed with Infantile Spasms (baby seizures)...with that information in hand they now have somewhere to start. They have medicine they want to give her but they need to make sure everything will work before giving to her. The good thing is they have something to give her the drawback is that it has some really bad side effects, it severely cripples the immune system, but they need to stop the spasms. If she continues to have them it could cause some brain issues. So, yeah for that and yeah for the medicine if she can take it. Which they should find out soon. So keep those prayers coming my friends! My other friend's son did start his first chemo treatment. I am hoping his treatment went as well as can be expected. Keeping his mom and wife and rest of family in your prayers. Thank you!

Eli and Dru just as we are headed out to the patch...decked to the nines for this outing! And really Dru can't hardly stand it cause of course there is a lot of orange going on this month! This cowboy roped himself a steer! Yeehaw! We put Eli on one of these and all he did was cry...so no picture of him. Maybe next year.
Well that's all for today, I have more pictures of our day but I don't want to fight rearranging them so I'll post some more tomorrow. Today was such a good day! The weather was wonderful when we went. It was so cold this morning here at my house, 49', I almost talked myself into turning the heat on in my house but I talked myself out of that one. I am not ready for that one yet. Because I am who I am, I always try and see how long we can go with out turning it on and my goal is the end of October. In case you were wondering I've not ever made it that far yet...much to frustration. I'm also this way at the grocery store trying to use coupons, you know at Safeway they give you a percentage of how much you saved. I'm always trying for 50%. I have yet to get there...it's elusive!
