I know, I know, long time no blog. It has been crazy, work, kids, life in general....I'm back dating this entry so that it will chronologically be correct on my blog.
These are pics from Halloween. Batman is Kenny's brother Robbi, with his three girls. We would normally have 2 more sweet girls but since Tim and Lan moved to Virginia Beach, the dynamics have changed a bit. We did miss them!
Kenny wasn't able to pull off "Dog the Bounty Hunter" in time for Halloween, next year for sure. I have A LOT of posts and pictures and will try to post more tonight and tomorrow.

We're anxiously awaiting the arrival of the girls Halloween costumes. Chloe is going to be a peacock, Ellie a mermaid and Madelyn a cheerleader. I originally wanted to make all of their Halloween costumes each year and would still like to, but this year it's been too crazy. We're going to trick or treat with Robbi, Heather and our nieces. We'll post pictures of the candy fest after. This will be the first year to trick or treat without Tim, Lan and their girls :( Lan was so sweet and mailed the girls a treat saying they would miss trick or treating with them this year.
I'm having a tulip planting party this coming weekend. Yes, I've invited my friends and family over to help me plant tulips. Lots of kids, dirt digging and laughs. I'll post pics after the party.
Kenny is wrapping up Track and Cross Country with Regionals and State. Basketball has already started, so life is about to get crazy. He is the High School Boys basketball coach this year and is very excited. If you're in the area, come and watch a game. Warning: If they lose Kenny will not be talkative after, so don't take it personal. He's very intense while coaching and of course hates to lose. Hopefully he'll have a winning season!
Our cat Whiskers (the stray that never left) has a broken leg and needs surgery. Whiskers is an outdoor cat and something got a hold of her in the night. Mr. Coco got a much needed haircut and looks 20 lbs thinner.
Chloe has 2 more teeth, for a total of 8 now.. crazy! She is a crawling maniac and pulls up now on everything to stand. She is still a Mommas girl, shunning Kenny if he tries to take her from me. Every time you change her diaper she stretches and pokes out her big (little) belly for you to rub. I love that!

I don’t know about the rest of you but in our house, laundry kicks our ass. Yes, I cursed on our family blog. Judge me if you must, but it is both appropriate and factual. It seems as though we always have mounds of laundry. I honestly can’t even remember the last time we had no dirty clothes… maybe 6 years and no kids ago. My children know to visit the dryer daily in search of clean clothes, pathetic I know. In light of these facts, I’ve written a tribute to my dryer.
Ode to the Dryer
Oh dryer Oh dryer, an ode to you
You dry our clothes and you store them too
You cheat the closet and dresser
Time with our wardrobe
For they never quite make it past the lint catcher
How I wish there were a fairy to bust out the wash
While I sleep at night and dream of matched up socks
To the dryer in the morning my children will flock
In hopes of finding some pants and hopefully a top
Any simple ensemble will do
The hunt for clean panties will quickly ensue
Color coordination is always a plus
Hoping for a match or there’ll be a fuss
Oh dryer Oh dryer, wonderful you are
Now if you could only cook dinner you’d be a rock star…
