Did I Blink?

I realized today that it's been almost 2 weeks since we last posted again... I honestly have no idea where the time went. It sometimes feels like I wake up in the morning, press play, run through my day, press pause and sleep if we're lucky, and then do it all over again the next morning. Maybe though, I just feel that way because it's Friday night after a very long week. For some reason I actually thought I would have MORE time this year with the babies being a little more independent and not needing us to hold them or give them bottles constantly. What was I thinking?? They are more independent but needing less of us is not even remotely reality. Gone are the days of plopping them into a swing, bouncer, or exersaucer so we can run to the bathroom or answer the phone. Now it's chasing, catching, and shushing... if you've called us recently you understand the shushing part. They LOVE the phone! Love to yell at the phone or anytime someone is on the phone, love to "talk" to Drew and Grandpa on the phone- which really means that if you try to actually have them talk to anyone they just stare at it, and love to try and hang up the phone or dial on it when you are talking. Crazies!

Blakes in our choo-choo wagon

Last weekend we went on a mission to try and find some fresh fruit and veggies at some of the local orchards. We got a bunch of squash from my cousin Maria which the babies are loving and even got a couple pumpkins. We made a stop up at Grandma and Grandpa's house and helped Grandpa plant a tree. We definitely live in Michigan because it was about 40 degrees outside on Saturday but by mid week it was in the 60's. Today we're back in the 40's with rain. Hopefully tomorrow will be better, we have Zoo Boo tickets and don't want to be rained out. Tomorrow is also flu shot day for the trio so Zoo Boo could be a disaster on 2 fronts. Let's hope not though!

Seamus is trying to unplant the tree!

This week has been a little crazier than usual. Flu shots for Pat and I, work meetings before and after school, having to get my brakes and rotors replaced on my van, frantically searching for a new Halloween costume for Helena since she outgrew the one we just bought her last month and didn't try it on her until today even though we need it tomorrow, and Seamus and Helena teething which means being up 4 hours in the middle of the night, has made for crankiness all around. I think I have the worst case of it with Pat being a close second. Why can't adults throw tantrums? I bet it would relieve some stress and make us feel a little better!
