Anyway, back to a few of the things life has had in store for us Farrer's lately...
We've had a couple of special birthday's to celebrate. One of our favorite cousins, Hudson, turned 5. He had a mario cart party and the kids all got caps and mustaches to wear! M looked totally natural sportin' the stache - right? E didn't want to wear the mustache or hat. She did warm up a bit in time to participate in a few party games.
Monday M and B both had football practices. M's coach told the boys to go home and watch the Cowboys vs Bears Monday Night Football game. We don't have cable so M couldn't watch. This was disappointing to him so I was trying to explain some of the reasons we choose not to have cable in our home. One being that there are things on TV that we don't want him and the other taters seeing. He cut me off as I was explaining and said "Mommy, if you're talking about Scooby Doo I've already seen it." Ummm...not exactly what I meant. Obviously, it's a little hard for a 6 year old boy to see the logic in this no cable business! In other football related news...the dog ate M's flags. I have procrastinated getting new ones all week, and will be forced to brave the rain at some point today to get them. Woe is me. ;)
M's class had a pumpkin patch field trip Tuesday. B chaperoned and took E with him. She was so excited to get to go. She desperately wanted to ride the bus with bubs, and talked about it for several days leading up to the trip. I told her she wasn't big enough yet but she was growing every day and one day she would get to ride on a bus. When she woke up Tues morning the first thing she said was "Am I all grown up now?"
Last night we had an impromptu dinner with some new friends from the PD, tomorrow is B's 32nd birthday, and today is rainy and cold. Someone thinks I am going to sit here all day and let him be a footstool. Don't tempt me dog. I seriously have dreams of sitting and doing nothing for an entire day. Usually there is not a dog under my feet, but I can be flexible!
Talk to ya soon,
