It's Raining...It's Pouring...Daddy is Snoring!

As expected, it rained and poured this weekend, but we made the best of it!! The kids were wild, stuck in the house....I was a good Mama/blogger and had my camera in tote most of the weekend so here are some fun pictures!!

Friday night - Mom and Jake watched the kids for me (Shane was getting sick so he stayed home to rest) and I went with Tara and Drew, Nicole and Jessica to our favorite Mexican restaurant for some fajitas and margaritas!!! Afterwards, we brought some wine back to Moms (payback for watching the kids =)) and us girls (and Owen, Claire played with Jace upstairs) hung out. Here are some cute pics from that night (I actually stole these from Tara so you may have already seen them)...

All of us...Tara, Owen's foot =), Mom, Jessica, Me and Nicole!You cannot tell in the picture very well, but O has an extremely blue mouth from a sucker...O playing in the sink...Nonna lets him do ANYTHING!!!Saturday morning - Owen was not feeling real well, he has a bad cold (now we all have it as of press time=)), but you would never be able to tell in these pictures...BOYS!!!! But Saturday, he woke up at the crack of dawn congested, requesting "nonuts" (aka Krispy Kremes), so he and I loaded up and picked up some donuts. He is always so excited when we are in the drive thru line and is yelling "NONUTS" the entire time! He was just as excited yesterday morning, but as you can see in the picture below, he was so sleepy and sicky, he could not stay awake long enough to enjoy his beloved breakfast =)....
Saturday afternoon - Shane had Owen's cold as well and was trying to get a nap in, HA...that does not happen with kiddos around!! We had a get together Saturday night, so I was running around trying to get the house ready, food prepped, etc, but I glanced in the living room and saw this =)...That would be the kids on top of Daddy while he is taking a nap =)Guess who won?? Shane got up to go clean up and....per the kids request....we watched Home Alone and Home Alone 2 =).....these are definitely my kids!!! The boys were lounging too....Claire always wants to help when we throw parties and I have started letting her make something so that she can. She made Niemen Markus Dip (sour cream, ranch dressing mix, shredded cheese, and real bacon bits, YUMMO!!). She was soooooo proud of herself!!More pictures of the kids chillin...Owen not wanting to take pictures...Look who is finally starting to "maybe" like each other =)...Wild and crazy....I will post pics of the party later...

Here are some cute pictures from this morning before church...too sweet!!
Though we did look adorable for church, we left 15 minutes into it...Owen was feeling terrible, and now I have been hit with it and we had to go home to rest. Going home to rest means different things to this family - Owen and Shane are napping, Claire is playing Cold Stone Creamery in her room (I have had 4 different cake batter combinations =)) and I am blogging =). But there are 2 family members that have resting down to an art...=)

(Cooper got into something in the garage, hence the black spot...tonight is bath night)
The weekend went by way too fast, but the sun is finally shining and it is GORGEOUS outside!! It so feels like fall and that makes me very happy!!
Hope you had a great weekend too!!

Great pictures! So cute! Love them all, especially the poor little one of Owen with his Nonut! Hope everybody feels better and you can enjoy the much needed sun!

Maggie said...

Love the picture of O in the car - did you notice that his car seat straps are both on one side?! LOL That cracked me up - what a mess; I can only imagine the stickiness from the 'Nonuts' (also priceless!!)

I did not realize how BIG Cooper had gotten, but man, you can really see it in that lounging pic of the two of them. Wow!!

Rachel said...

Maggie - Cooper has actually lost weight!!!

Yes - It is not even a thing I notice anymore about the car seat straps...he hates them!! I gave up...sometimes I think he is stronger than me =)

So I tried to send you a reply email to your comment but it accidently copied the message I sent to the person who posted 2nd on my blog. So, I think you received the wrong message (if you received it at all)...oops!
ANYWAY, this is what the email meant to say:

Yay! Congrats!

You should receive your fun gift next week!

Thanks for reading my blog!!!
Looks like you had a fantastic weekend!

Also, do you have an email address I can contact you on to get your address. If you leave it as a comment on my blog I will immediately delete it so people don't try to stalk you :)

I love those pictures! They just crack me up! :) The "nonuts" is hilarious!!
Hope you're feeling better.

Love O sleeping with his donuts. I have heard stories of kids falling asleep in their car seats...just have never seen it first hand!

Come down and visit! I wish you guys would...it would be so fun!

Ok, I hate to say it, but now I don't feel so bad about missing your Welcome Fall party on Saturday night. I can NOT get sick right now. I have too much going on at work this week. I hope you all get well soon. Colds suck!

I love the pictures of the kids on top of Shane and taking over the couch. They are so cute, I don't know how you can stand it.

Poor O falling asleep with his Nonut. Cute!

BTW, FALL IS COMING! Whoo Hoo. It is so Fall outside right now!

Bmac said...

Your kids are adorable! Looks like you had a very eventful weekend! I am so excited about this fall weather too! I'm ready to bring out the long sleeves! I'm so over my summer clothes now! HA

Justin and Jenn said...

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog! Your kids are adorable!

Traci Fritz said...

Hey Rachel...Your kids are getting so big. I can't believe how grown up Claire is. I got your blog link from Christie awhile back so i could see the pics of the tornado that hit during Kyle's graduation party. Also, Cooper's looking great these days. He has lost so much weight! I'm glad your beautiful family is doing well.

OH, GIRL. I just got your comment and no, I had better not be pregnant! I got my tubes tied after #2. ( I had 2 rough pregnancies and then c-sections)
So if I am... SHOCK/ miracle baby! ha ha =) My mom had hormonal headaches and I inherited it, I guess. She has no longer had them since "the change" but there seems to be no cure for it! =(

I love Miss Claire's big polkadotted bow. She really should be a child model.

Erin said...

Okay this is my first time to ever comment...not even sure I know what I am doing. :) I don't want to be called a "stalker." I always love your pictures and of course I love your kids. Claire is looking so happy, cute and grown-up!! See you soon. I love Fall too!!!!!!!!!!!!!
