Busy Busy Busy

We had such a busy weekend. Saturday we went to New Braunfels for my cousin's son Talon's 2nd birthday party. While we were there Ethan fell in the pool. He was close to the side & I was able to pull him out pretty quickly, but it still gave Erik & I quite a scare. After the party, we headed over to meet the Wilder's for dinner at Salt Lick. But as soon as we got out there & started unloading the kids, it started pouring. We had an awesome dinner & the weather finally died down some before we left, but we still didn't get any rain at our house. The radar even said is was raining here the other day. But nothing. Erik's garden isn't doing so well with this weather even though he's been watering like crazy. However, I did see some storm clouds today, so maybe just maybe if we all keep our fingers crossed, we'll actually get some rain. Another bonus, our white trash neighbors finally mowed their lawn today. WOO HOO! The guys are nice enough but their yard is turning into a bigger dump by the day.

Ethan started using the potty again today!!!!

He saw that I wasn't going to let him wear pullups anymore & actually ran to the bathroom saying he needed to go, when he's been putting up a fight for weeks!!!!

New do

I forgot to mention the other day that Erik's mom & dad, sis & Aunt Tammy sent me to the salon to get my hair done for my birthday. It was much needed & I greatly appreciate it. It's nice to not have to carry around all of that extra weight on my head anymore & it looks cute too.

It's August

I can hardly believe that it's August already. I've been home with the boys for just over 6 months now. It's been wonderful... even with all the attitude.

Lots is changing. I'm going back to work part-time starting this week. I'll be working nights from 6-10 at my old company. Just doing a scanning that sort of stuff. Nothing major, but it'll be nice for us to have some spending money again. We went up there twice this past week to get everything set up & the boys had fun running around & playing with everyone. They love attention & it's a change of scenery as well.

My parents came up this weekend to spend my birthday with us & got me this AWESOME new laptop. Now I can stay in the living room & post on here or email during the day without letting them out of my sight. Which means... less fighting. These days they fight a lot. Mostly, it's just because Evan won't take Ethan's crap anymore. So what happens is, Evan gets a toy, Ethan decides he wants that toy & attempts to take it. Evan in turn, hits Ethan & has even bitten him. Then I have both of the boys crying because they got in trouble. And Ethan doesn't understand that the reason Evan bites is because he used to do it to him. Fun fun.

Like I said I start work part time this week, so it'll be a new experience for us all. I'll probably be exhausted by the end of the week, but it'll be good for all of us.
