My windows and doors are open!!! I can hardly believe that I am sitting here with my window open behind me and the breeze has me reaching for my sweater.... YES!!! This has been a long time coming and I am going to enjoy the heck out of it. We get 6 months of HOT and then six months of not hot, I won't venture to say cold because we really don't do COLD here. Our blood thins here from the heat, so as soon as it dips in the low 80s or upper 70s we are in layers here. Really funny.
Our first of many new babies has joined us, he was born September 26 at 7 pounds and 2 ounces and 22 inches long. Tony (the youngest of Alex's siblings) won that bet pool, so the competition for the twins is growing by the day. The new parents are doing great and my SIL is all but back to her before weight, so I want to strangle and congratulate her all at the same time... Ahhhh to be in my twenties again and be able to lose weight on a whim. I wish that I could tell you his real name, they did a wonderful job naming this little guy. Needless to say he loves to eat and sleep at this stage, but he always has a smile on that beautiful face too. My SIL sends multiple pictures a day, her Facebook wall is full of daily activities and pictures and each of them has him with a huge smile on his face. I just love babies, but happy babies that are always smiling and have the laugh that comes from their belly... Oh my goodness, I can just eat them up! (Not literally, but you get what I mean.) :0)
Sooooooo.. Anyone want to know who played some fabulous football last weekend??? My pink bottom can tell you several players that helped contribute to its color...
I GOT MY FANTASY FOOTBALL SPANKING!!!!
Saturday was super stressful for us and our family, so on Sunday Alex declared we were shutting ourselves away from the world and pulling back together as a family. So after church we came home and ate lunch together and played some games and had a wonderful time before Kyle went to work and Kaylee went back down to help Lori. That left Alex and I home alone for Sunday night football and it was LOTS of fun. We even went over the last couple of months and it would seem that our "fun" spankings finally have out numbered our "punishment" spankings for once!! HA! I think retirement has helped, maybe not at first... But now that I am more settled or Alex made the guidelines more clear (I am going with me being more settled :0)) but we had a shift in that balance to more fun. Yahoo for us!
Now I am just hoping to make it through the holidays with that same average.
