Patching It Up.

It was a little scary, but we did it! We ventured to the pumpkin patch and let the quads run free for a bit. They loved the straw pile. It was so fluffy and bouncy it just made them giggle. Even better, we took them on the hayride out to the patch and we found a couple of GINORMOUS pumpkins to carve. I would say they easily weigh more than Drew. We bought some cider but I have waited to give it to them. Brian really likes it so I was thinking we could do it as a family. Next mission is to carve with 10 little hands wanting to help. :) I will let you know how that goes!

Brian has been out of town on business the last two weeks. It's been quite a challenge. He has two more trips coming up, I just have to hang tough a little longer. Last week wasn't bad, but this week was difficult. The quads are sick with colds, and Drew was just cranky. I'm happy to have him home for the weekend. He flies out again Monday afternoon, so if any of you would like to help out in the evenings or drop off food one night, PLEASE LET ME KNOW!! He won't be home until Friday night.

Other than catching myself running in circles being a single mommy for a few weeks, things have been going well. Just keeping busy with work, doctors appts, smooching the kids. Looking forward to the holidays and birthdays but not the cold weather. Going to Wisconsin for the quads birthday and Thanksgiving. I am so excited. It is nice to think that I don't have to worry about Brian working extended hours and holidays. Loving it!! Time to run, I'm beat and would like to see my husband.
Halloween pics to come soon.

Busy Bodies.

Let me just say I LOVE MY LIFE! My kids are having the time of their life. They are playing together and idependently, climbing the jungle gym outside, talking, following directions, and of course fighting. It's so amazing to see preemies grow into normal healthy toddlers. :)

I will update you on all the happenings in the last couple of weeks. We have been a busy bunch. My parents came to Indy, my sister got married and of course we partied. The kids bopped until they dropped. So much fun! They sat well in church, ate chicken fingers and fries, showed the crowd some of their dance moves. It was an amazing day. It's too bad it took us a full week to recover from our be-bopping and hip-hoppin. Brian started his new job this week. He is loving it. He starts in class training this week in Pennsylvania. We sure are going to miss him. He will be home on the weekends, but will be in and out of town for the next 4-5 weeks. :( The kids will be able to skype with him, so we can at least see his face. We took a field trip to the zoo. There was no one there, so we got a lot of good views of the animals. The kids loved the monkies. This past weekend, Brian got his first taste of what being a normal working persons weekends really consist of. HOME IMPROVEMENT! We've done lots of around the house projects, just not on the weekend. First up....the front door. Re-caulked, painted, and power washed the patio. CHECK! Next week...the PUMPKIN PATCH. :)

Yep, time to get ready for Halloween. We have 6 of 7 costumes. The last one should be here this week. You will have to wait for pictures...I'm not ready to post what I have. Hope you all have a great week...I'm praying for my sanity. YOU SHOULD TOO!
