Rambling on..playing catch up!

Oh I need to blog, I need to blog. I recently went through my blog to find some pictures. I used to be a good, very consistent blogger! What happened? Practically every day I have thoughts that I want to blog about. It just doesn't happen!

What's going on? Hmm, well I am tired. That's nothing new. Zach is at his grandparents and is having too much fun to call his mommy. We are remodeling our bathroom and it's pretty messy. Plus it's strange having a group of strangers in our bedroom all day every day! I didn't think it was a good time to remodel. We can't afford it. But I think this is some how therapeutic to Scott. He needs to keep his mind busy.

The service for my Mother-in-law is this Sunday, so that's also on our minds. I have been busy helping to prepare. The funeral home wanted $50 for a guest sign in book and I said no way! Well, I didn't say no way, I just told my father-in-law to let me handle that. I am proud to say I found an appropriate Guest book at the Family Christian Store for $10.99! I am so proud. (I love that store and asked hubby to just get me a gc there for my Birthday and let me go shopping all by myself one day! Now that's a great present:))I also bought a beautiful dress and shoes for $17 total at the Salvation Army. I can just tell the dress has only been worn once or twice. Over the years I have some how lost any and all dressy clothes!

Hmmm.. what else. The twins are keeping me busy. I mean super busy, never can sit down busy. I spend the day sweeping, wiping hands and faces, assisting with "potty" breaks, breaking up fights, watching Sprout and Nick Jr., playing outside, preparing meals.. the usual mom stuff I guess. It's good to stay busy. They also make me smile and laugh :) I love observing their fights, conversations and play time. (really, the fights are entertaining) Who needs play dates? Every day is a play date! They have each other. Now they like to sit together at the table with both chairs on the same side. They feed each other. I love my kids!

We all went to see Toy Story 3 in 3D a few weeks ago. Brandon and Faith did really well.

We went to the water side of Six Flags one day. That was fun. I am guessing we will go to Six Flags a few more times this summer since we have season passes.

July 4th we cooked out. Around 9ish we walked down the road to watch the Manassas City fireworks.

Oh - Father's Day! Wow. I really haven't blogged in a while. We took Daddy Scott to brunch at the Manassas City Tavern. We showered him with gifts and then we left him to have alone time:) I drove the kids to WV to spend the rest of Father's Day with my Dad. We cooked out and had a Father's Day cake. Very good day! WHEW. That's everything. I am all caught up. And now the pictures....

You MUST be really busy because you don't even read my Blog, anymore.

I bet your Dad is familiar with Mark Farner.
