Maia is adorable! I'll have to put Annabelle into her bumblebee costume and take a pic.
Annabelle is a little fish as well, at the lake this summer she was fearless, and she swims as much as she can in the bathtub, I'll have to take her swimming more in the next few weeks as I can, and then take her when I can. I'm loving this cooler weather, almost 30 is way to hot for me right now.

Thanks, gals. She is a lil' devil!

I love that Jade and Annabelle are such water babies. Maia hates even her bath, so no luck there. LOL Jade is doing great, swimming on her own!!

I'm glad for the cooler weather, too, though it's making me have headaches until the temperature gets a new constant. I love the fall, though. I wish it were a longer season, but it seems to be the shortest one!

What's up today, gals? I'm at work, with a headache. FUN TIMES!

What are you guys up to this weekend? Nothing here. DS stayed with my mom last night, and this morning was nice to have some time with just Katie. Tomorrow we launch a full out offensive against fleas in our house. I knew they were on the dog, we used flea shampoo on her two weeks in a row and did the monthly flea treatment (that I slacked on this summer - :doh: ) but evidently they are on the couch or carpet too. I found one this morning on Katie's head :eek: Disgusting. I went to the store and bought as much stuff as I thought I could use and today I'm cleaning up as much clutter as I can so that I can get at every nook and cranny in our living and bedrooms.

I HATE fleas!!!!

I can't wait for Halloween! I love babies in costumes. Smile Noah is gonna be a firefighter. Not sure about Nathan yet. He might have to settle for one of Noah's old ones. Can't really afford one, unless I can make one for fairly cheap. He would actually probably fit in last year's costume. He has only gained 2-3 pounds since then!

Not a whole lot else going on. Putting in some job applications. Money is just getting too tight. Sad I will definitely miss my boys, but I am ready for some time away from them and be around adults again.

Today has been crazy! Had to take my cat to the vet (for his annual checkup) but it was a new vet and I was very impressed with them. Then I treated myself and my Mom to a haircut (it was actually for her birthday present but she hadn't felt up to it a few weeks ago). I also cleaned quite a bit and managed to find Maia an Olivia stuffed pig. She loves Olivia!

My hair is so short now. Well, short for me. It's just above my shoulders. I'm not quite sure how I feel about it. LOL!

Carrie--I feel your pain! When I was 15 we got a horrible invasion of fleas. I have no idea why that summer and never any other time. It was like you couldn't step off the bed without having them attack. It was horrible. We bombed them out eventually but it was such a hassle. Good luck and I hope they're gone soon!

Ashley: Maybe Nathan could be a dalmatian puppy to go along with Noah's fire-fighter costume?? They'll be adorable either way! I'm sorry things are getting tight. I really wish this economy would pick up. I hope you find a great job that you love!

Amanda, I love that idea! I remembered that I have a Buzz costume I bought like 6 months ago. I doubt it will fit though. And Noah could be Woody. Oh I can't wait to see if it fits now! Smile I think we need a pic of the new haircut. I need one, but I can never decide how short. My hair is VERY thick and wavy. Anyone else?

I-m so happy Thanks!! I'll have to post a pic of it curly. It's so different. I run my fingers through it and run out of hair very quickly. LOL

How are you gals? Hope everyone is doing great!

We went to my cousin's baby shower this weekend. She's due in November. There was a baby there who was 3 days older than Maia but at least a head or two shorter than Maia. Maia had to stoop down to hug her, but they were sweet together, hugging and blowing kisses. Until the little gal pinched Maia. Poor Maia hasn't been pinched in her life and just looked at the gal like, "What the hell??" LOL

Awww. sorry Maia got pinched! How was it to have her with you at the shower? I didn't take K with me to my sister in law's shower because I didn't want to have to chase her around. Although I suppose that was different as I had some co-hosting responsibilities too.

I want another shower for myself! Too bad that will never happen until one of my kids gets married or has kids.

The hair:

Mi-Mi, her Daddy's diet Coke and me

From the back. I wanted Maia to stay in the pic so you could see her little curls but one picture was more than enough for her. LOL

Carrie--I agree! I'd love a new shower. All they'd have to give me would be diapers. LOL

I didn't get to enjoy the shower as much in that I was running after her all the time. There were sockets that were unplugged and she kept running for them. I got her to sit down and eat a slice of cake with me, though, so that was nice. I couldn't imagine having her there if I were co-hosting, I hear you on that!!

Cute hair!! I'm thinking of cutting mine too. It is longer than it has ever been!!

We just got back from a trip to VA. It was fun but SO quick. My brother came down too so that was nice to see him. I ran a race and did really well, so I'm pretty excited about that as well. Nothing much else going on around here. Ready for fall - it is still really hot/humid here and driving me insane!! We have lots of plans for traveling and folks visiting over the next few weeks so that will be both fun and crazy.

I don't post nearly enough. I will try to do better!!

Thanks, gals! Biggrin

Maia has a new lovie, that sleeps with her. It's a little monkey and it's so cute to see her snuggled with him!

Tonight is Ghost Hunters. I love that program. Do any of you watch??

MC--that's awesome about your race! How far do you run? Do you run everyday? I hear you on the fall. It's my favorite season. We're cooling down some here, and I have pumpkins on the porch, so tis the season. LOL

Hello ladies! I know I'm such a loser at updating. Facebook takes up so much of my time. Although it is a waste of time. Anyhow love the costumes they look great! Nothing exciting with us. My daughter is getting all A's one B in her classes (college) the other kids are getting ready for the cold months and Susu is driving me crazy because we have taken the paci from her during the day. She is not happy and cried all day today. I almost gave in. I am allowing her to have it for naps and nite nite. she doesn't sleep that great so I don't want to make things worse. I pierced my bottom lip (under the bottom lip right side lower lip) I love it. No pics yet cause it is a lil swollen. Smile
