Few days without Matt

Not a lot has happened here which is kinda nice. I will try and remember anything, which for me is hard!! Last Thursday on the 22nd Matt went to Texas. He was going to be coming home Friday evening, but when he got Phoenix he sent me a text letting me know that he will be coming home Saturday night. I was bummed. I do not do well being by myself. But I kept busy so it wasn't so bad. Thursday afternoon my friend Cristy took Brett for me and I cleaned. Amazing what you can get done with no children interrupting you! I got him about 3 and got home in time to get Ryan off the bus. I was having a Scentsy Party that night and so I was still trying to get a few things done and get ready for that. I had 6 people show up. It was pretty fun. When it was all over with I got to call Christa and told her my total. It was so much better than I thought. I ended up getting almost 150 worth of product for only $57. So excited. I can't wait to get the stuff. The next day I chilled. Was too tired from the day before. That night was Enrichment with church and we thought there was supposed to be babysitting some of went with our kids. We got there and there wasn't any babysitting, but there was a "daddy" with a small baby who was in the gym and kept an eye on the kids. SO NICE of him. We played clue and others worked on crafts. It was a lot of fun. We got home about 9 and it took a little bit to get the kids settled down but it was nice when they finally fell asleep. Matt got home about 8:30 Saturday night. It felt good to have him home. Oh and Friday during his spelling test at school Ryan pulled out his left tooth, the one right next to the front tooth, I don't know what that one is called. So he came home so excited, since he wanted so bad to loose a tooth at school. Before Enrichment a small group was getting together and going to Panda Express. So right before heading over there, Ryan noticed that the right tooth (same as the left one he just pulled earlier) was really loose. I took a look at it and I dared him to pull it out before we got to Cristy's. I didn't think he would do it but man he did. He was just excited that the Tooth Fairy was going to give him money for two teeth!! This week has been pretty slow. Tuesday a group of us started our own little weight loss group. We are paying $1 a week and at the end of the month whoever looses the most wins that money. It was nice. I hope we can keep it going. I have talked to my mom and she is sounding better and better each time I talk to her. It is so nice to hear that. So thank you that have prayed for her.

Finally more pictures

Well I am horrible at keeping this updated. My goal is try to do better. Although just how many people look at this? I do now know. This last summer Brett learned how to blow bubbles. Ryan would try and try but just couldn't get it. Finally a couple of weeks ago he figured it out and now all they want it gum. Actually even before bubbles that is all the wanted. Don't ya just love Ryan's matching clothes? No I didn't dress him. It used to be that he wouldn't wear clothes that didn't match and now he has specific shirts and shorts that he loves to wear and that is it. I don't make him change unless we are going somewhere. We have been seeing Kassie a lot more lately and it has been fun. The always play with the Pokemon cards, there is something about those that they just love. Kassie I think like the glittery ones! And ever since coming back from Idaho the boys have been obsessed with cats. Our poor cat Pennie. She is the kind that doesn't snuggle, she is like you can pet me when I want you too, not when you want to. The boys really didn't pay attention to her at all for 7 years and now they won't leave her alone and you can just see that she HATES that. Kinda funny if you ask me. We have caught the boys locking her in their bedroom and making a bed of blankets for her and trying to get her to sleep in their beds. Poor Pennie. Well my brother in law Pete is now in Mexico. Poor Pete. He has started a blog and it is actually quite funny. It may be funny to all, but he is a very talented writer and I am for sure going to be checking hi blog on a regular basis. If anyone is interested it is The Mexico Descent on the right side of the page under favorite sites to visit. I am glad that Ryan is back in school but man Brett is BORED out of his mind, but so many times does not want to play with me. Arg. But at least it is Wednesday and Ryan get out at 12:15 today. Thank goodness. Well since Brett is bored we are going to take the cans back to Safeway. That will be something for him to do and I can add to my scentsi candle fund. Gonna have a party this month and can't wait.
