Nothing really exciting happened today. Aaron and I went to the craft store to get tie dye stuff for DH’s hippie shirt for Halloween. Then we went to Target where I was going to get a new vacuum but they were out of the one I wanted. They have a Dyson on clearance so we’ll see how much we spend on furniture this weekend. After we came back, Aaron napped and I unpacked more stuff.
When Aaron woke up, we went for a walk around Post. We stopped and got the mail, and I took some pictures of the fall leaves. Then I heard this music and thought “Man, someone has their radio up loud.” It was my phone LOL. My Dad called to say “Hi” which is strange because I was going to call him this week. On the way to our walk we also fond a little treat on our doorstep. We got “Booed” by the Phantom Ghost. We had to make little goody bags and leave them for 2 other people and then post our ghost to show we already got one. This goes on until Halloween. I thought it was fun, and Zach thought it was fun going around the neighborhood with me. We went to the far end to try and spread the fun out.
Tonight we did something as a family we haven’t done since before Chris left for Iraq. We sat at the table and ate dinner as a family. Of course as soon as Aaron was done he wanted let out of his high chair. I can understand that, he’s only going to be 2. Although, he did keep coming back with his mouth open like a little birdie saying “AHHHHHHH” at the top of his lungs for more of our food. Zach asked to be excused as soon as he cleared his place as well. Then it was peaceful. I swear it was a circus before that. DH says it’s because they’re not used to it. I think it’s just because they’re monkeys LOL. We eat out enough that they sit at a table and eat with us, and there, we sit until we’re all done. I think I’m going to get the dinner time games I saw at Learning Express yesterday. One starts for age 3, and the other deck for age 5. We can use them both now, but if Zach thinks the age 3 one is too babyish we can save it for when Aaron’s ready to play along too.
I also found this blog revamp giveaway tonight, but I’m not sure I got in on time. The contest ends tonight. If you’re interested and you think you can get in on it, you can check it out here. I did put the blog owner’s widget (?), icon (?), whatever they’re calling the pictures that represent blogs, in my side bar. Can you tell I’m so with the times. I’m 28 and I feel like a moron some days. Speaking of, I had to explain reel to reel movies to my 7 year old and he looked at me like I was nuts when I said that’s how we watched movies in school on a pull down screen, just like in Tom and Jerry. The look on his face said “Wow, Mom must be really OLD.”
A random rambling from my grocery store trip. I found Bot Water in the organic foods section. My 7yo loves the berry and orange. He’s not a grape person so we didn’t try it. They’re like vitamin water for kids. I saw them on the MomDot.com site originally. I also got the pancake batter in a can that I saw on the Because I Said So blog awhile back. Or maybe it was the review blog. I can’t remember anymore. I’ll let you know how those go over when I make them. I figure for a non morning person like me, they’re great for when DH is gone on weekends. There’s supposedly no artificial stuff in them either. How cool is that? I wonder how many college kids have eaten the batter straight out of the can while drunk like whipped cream? I think about weird things like that.
Ok, I promise I’m done rambling for today. Hope you have a great weekend!
