Fall is definitely my favorite season of the year! I've been feeling so happy lately.... filling my home with apple and pumpkin smells! It really is the simple things in life, you know? I keep telling Matt, the ONLY WAY I could be happier is if I was thin and rich, but besides that.... my cup runneth over! ;)
The girls have been a little under the weather this last week, but things are starting to look up. Last week, I walked into the nursery to get the girls up in the morning, and the smell of vomit hit me like a mack truck! Poor Abby puked in the night and who knows how long she had to sleep in it?! I never heard a thing! Poor little girl. Luckily, it was all on one side of her crib, so she had one semi-clean side to rest her head. It was DISGUSTING! I even took a pic, but it's probably not nice to subject my reading audience to it. ;)
The next day, Ally and Izzy puked a little too and none of the girls ate very well for a few days. Now, poor Ally is having diarrhea and TERRIBLE diaper rash. Although all of this has been happening, the girls haven't acted like they feel too bad, so it's made it bearable. They'd play together and have fun, but I might have to clean up some puke. It's when they feel terrible, are clingy AND I'm cleaning up puke, that it becomes unbearable! ok... that's probably enough about puke and diarrhea... moving on!
The weekend before last, Matt and I took the girls to the park to swing and to get out and enjoy the beautiful weather. Here are a few pics from our visit:
We had a Cheerio picnic and fed some to the ducks.
Izzy really wanted to tackle them...
Good news so far about Matt's job with Dollar Thrifty. The Shareholders turned down the Hertz buy out, so it's still a profitable stand alone company (for now). So far, things are still going well for him there and we're praying that it will all work out. It's been a very good place for him to grow and advance up to this point.
As far as selling the house - we got nothing. I mentioned a while back that some people wanted it, but then had trouble getting their loan... since then, no one has shown interest. We're just making it work until God has something else in store for us. As a matter of fact, when we put the house on the market, we knew it was a possibility it could take years to sell, so we're not too discouraged.
Last weekend, we had a Yard Sale, selling all 3 infant car seats, bouncy seats, swings, TONS of clothes, etc. We had a good turn out - sold almost everything, and made over $550! The money I made is going back into the clothes fund for the girls, and I had fun doing some shopping online for new fall/winter duds, with money leftover for next season.
I've ordered the Halloween costumes, and am excited to update with pics as soon as the big day rolls around, so stay tuned!
