I know that I have some people that look down on me for my serious blog slacking, so I decided to try to get a little updated today. I know there is no good excuse, but my life has been seriously chaotic this past few months. I'm having a girl's breakfast at my house in the morning, and I really should have cleaned my filthy house. Instead I decided to finally blog. There is always something I feel like I should be doing more than blogging, so it gets pushed to the side. Hopefully soon I will get time to read everyone's blogs. Just get me through these next few weeks of Enrichment night, Super Saturday, 3 more kids birthdays, soccer games and Halloween! Hopefully my life will slow down a bit during November before Thanksgiving and Hayden's baptism. Probably not, but I can dream.
October 10th, Carter turned 2!!!!! I can't believe my baby is 2 already. It is so sad that he is growing up. It is not sad enough to go for a 5th kid, but it is very sad. Eric was on a scout campout on his birthday, so we celebrated on Sunday at my mom's house with the whole family. He was so excited for his "tate." He can't say the K sound. He replaces his ks with ts. I love the little monkey to death, but he is seriously going to put me over the edge. He is going to destroy the entire house. He swings on everything. The boys bathroom towel bar and the powder bath toilet paper holder are currently ripped out of the wall. As soon as I fix them I'm sure he will do it again. I'm pretty sure the pendant lights over the island will get ripped out of the ceiling soon. Anytime I do anything (unless he is asleep) he pushes a chair over next to me, so he can climb up. He is constantly getting in trouble. Let me tell you, the discipline is not what it used to be. I'm a little tired now, and he gets away with way more than the older boys ever did. Olivia is a whole other story.
The kids had school off on Carter's actual birthday. We went up to Greenbluff, which is one of my very favorite fall tradition. Unfortunately my camera battery ran out before I took any good pictures in the pumpkin patch or the corn maze. I also wish that a picture could let you taste the amazing hot pumpkin donuts. They are the best things in the world!
