Paul's home...almost!!

After 6 days of travelling, Paul returned to the United States. He just happened to have a layover in Detroit on his way to St. Louis, so we drove the 1 hr 45 min to see him. Why didn't he just come home with us, you ask?? He is required to return to the base for briefings, turn in equipment, etc. He'll fly into Lansing, Mi on Tuesday and be officially "home".

When Paul got off the plane (we had a special military pass to meet him at he gate), Tate didn't even hesitate...he ran right to him. It was like he had just left yesterday! Tate is a cautious kid who doesn't just go to anyone, and he was 100% comfortable with Paul and called him" Dada" almost immediately. It was awesome.

As we were waiting, Paul let Tate dig through his bags. Here he is dumping everything out on the floor.

And us on the way home after a stop at Trader Joe's, wayyyyyyyyyy past nap. Yea--that's a box of cereal I let him have on his lap. The hands on the ears? Him just being a ham for the camera.

Out of commission

Did I spell that right?? Anyway, not much blogging going on as I have been sick the past few days. I guess I have a breast infection and have had a fever, vomiting, all the ickies.

After being further frustrated with military health insurance, I went to the ER and got some antibiotics. I am thankful that I am getting this out of the way before Thanksgiving. See? My way of looking on the bright side :)

More after I recover.

Last Layouts B4 Thanksgiving

I sometimes get burned out from scrapping, so I am waiting until Thanksgiving weekend, which is an annual crop at my Aunt MaryAnn's house. I want to save my creative energy until then!

This LO was inspired by a Scrap in Style TV tutorial that showed going through all your stickers and just slapping things on in a cluster and taking only a few minutes to complete a page. It was so fun!!!
This LO was inspired by Ali Edwards "Daily Inspiration" using junk mail and I loved the idea and translated it on to a page. Not as cute as AE's envelope, but I will be using more junk mail in the future.

Is Halloween over?

I sit here with a tootsie roll in each cheek. Stupid Halloween Candy! So much for the 10 lbs I planned to lose before Paul came home. He'll be here in about 2 weeks, and unless I do nothing but work out until he arrives, it's not happening!

Catie, Tate and I decided to pull out Tate's sing along CDs. And then we pulled out anything that could be considered a costume and we danced and dressed up and laughed hysterically. A good way to burn an hour, especially when you are so tired you could pass out and need to wake up.

Saturday am

It is dark. Tate woke up at the buttcrack of dawn saying "eat", which I thought he was saying "itch" (eczema on his legs) until "WAFFLE" was said very clearly at 5:10a!! Oh yea, he went back to bed...only for an hour.

I was making Halloween shaped pancakes (we're out of waffles) before my eyes were even open. I know, Halloween is over, BUT THEY ARE SO COOL!

The pic is blurry, but this is how he wakes up every morning. He melts down in the evening, don't be mistaken, but he is alllll smiles at the break of day.
