Monsters on Fall Break?

I know I said I was going to do a bit more blogging but heck, I just cannot get my sh*t together enough to actually do o it. I do, however, have good intentions but some kind person reminded me where a paved road of good intentions leads. Thanks.

More updates on the boys. Both boys are in school and loving it. Nicholas goes every day, from 8:00-1:30. Greyson goes Tues/Thurs from 9:00-2:30. I dont mind the 2 days a week school, it gives me time to get some things done (things that obviously do not include blogging). But this every day school business, well it just sucks. I hate it. I hate missing my boy so much. I hate that on Mon, Wed, and Friday, Grey and I spend half the day watching the clock in anticipation of Nicholas getting out of school. And it is not that I dont enjoy my alone time with my snuggly guy, I do, but we both miss Nick and our days is so much brighter when we pick him up. Grey has even made up a song that we sing about going to pick up Nick from school. We just miss him.

So that is why we are thrilled with fall break. While other parents are talking about how long it lasts (Nick is out of school from Sept 22-Oct 11), I am as happy as a clam. I get to have both my boys home all day long every day. Yesterday, we woke up a bit late, didn't go anywhere, just stayed at home and played all day. It was the perfect day and I thanked God at least 30 times last night for that.

Today, Greyson went to school (its his last day before Fall Break and he goes back Oct 12) and Nick and I made a quick trip to Michael's to buy some Halloween stuff to paint. Then we rushed back home so he could paint a little bit before we have to pick up G baby.

Scary, yet colorful Frankenstein

I wish you could see his little face behind the mask, he is smiling from ear to ear, is my not so scary fella. Please note the different shades of green, Nicholas refused to use the green paint from the Crayola jar and made his own, different shades of green.

Nick's take on Halloween starts with his liberal use of color. Two colors work so well, why not use 10?

Oops, gotta run. Nick's Zorro costume arrived in the mail and we have to try it out. Greyson is going to be Harry Potter. Nick wore that last year but I cant talk Greyson into choosing anything else so I am happy to save a few $$.

He's My Grey Baby

Excuse me if I get a little mushy or nostalgic but I have a serious issue with Greyson, my baby, being 4 years old. His birthday was in August and he was so excited to be a big boy of 4 years. Me? Not so much. Not sure why, but since he was born we gave him the nickname of Grey Baby. Now all who love him call him that, even though the baby fat and the squishy chunks of baby feet have gone away, to be replaced by a slim preschooler with stinky boy feet. I love those stinky boy feet. While exciting to watch him grow, it is hard to accept that he is no longer a Grey "baby".

Of course I remember the day he was born, and I remember the first time I saw those big ol' dimples. I was so enamored of him, so overcome by that sweet little guy, I didn't even notice his dimples at first. But the nurse did and pointed them out. They say it takes weeks for babies to smile and then it may only be gas, but not Grey Baby. He was smiling seconds after he was born. A big beautiful smile with those adorable dimples flashing. My happy little guy, he still smiles all the time and it melts me heart. Every morning, when he wakes up and yells from him bed "Mommy, Mommy" as loud as he possibly can. He doesn't just get up and out of bed and come looking for me. Not my little guy. He wants me to come to his room, flip on the light and say "Good morning sunshine". And he has this huge dimpled grin for me. Its right there, the minute I open the door. I always give him a big tight hug and he says "I love you Mommy. You're my favorite Mommy in the whole world". Well, I love you and those precious dimples, you're my favorite Grey Baby in the whole world.

Long time, no blog

Sorry for not posting in over a month. A lot has been going on. Nothing drastic but so much has kept me busy and off my blog. Things like Nicholas starting school, Grey's birthday party, Grey starting school, listing stuff on ebay, PTO, soccer, etc. Just all kinds of extracurricular activities that have kept my fingers, mind, hand, and heart busy, not to mention my taxi...err...car busy. I will be adding a new post for each big even over the next couple of weeks to make sure you didn't miss anything.
For now though, I will just include a couple of pics of some really handsome fellas.

OK, just kidding (well not really) but I meant these guys:
