Holy Blog, Batman!

Holy, Blog Batman.  Looks like we've been a total slacker!  There are many of reasons why I've been slacking.... (1) enjoying the kids, (2) new addiction to Fringe, (3) the ever so later and later kiddo bedtimes, (4) my own stubbornness toward the blog...feeling like w/ the blog people don't feel the need to call, write or message us b/c all our life is up here, (5) pure back-to-work-at-a-new-school busyness, (6)  trying to spend more time w/ the hubby and not w/ the computer.  But...we'll put all that aside

So since we've updated only 1 time the last month....and only a few times the month before...I've got lots to share.

Summer is over.  But man...was it a blast.  This lil' man was almost 100% potty trained. 
*yes, "was" the back-to-school routine has disrupted his progress*

We took our first ever family vacation. By first ever. I mean ever. Since Cory and I've been married. The kids had a blast!

We've been all over StL trying to hit some of the parks and events.  Here is the Bird Sanctuary and a few Dodo's they've locked up!



Perhaps one of the best picture of my two goobers.


B started Pre-K! She is doing great! Already has mastered her first memory verse and is totally rocking that school!  This is the Meet-the-Teacher night!

Our traditional First Day of School picture w/ a super cranky Owen.


Here she is at her first day of school!


So...I promise to be a better blogger. Really. The blog is more for me than anyone else. I love look back at old photos, thoughts and videos of the goobers...and just reminse. These two have gotten so big and I know one day I'll be looking back at when they were two and four years old thinking. "wow...that is when they were so little."
  I wish I could just freeze time and keep them this age forever {hold the tantrums, though}.   So for that very reason...this blogger is back!!!
