One day while driving along with the kiddos, we passed two women running together on the sidewalk. Evelyn was all excited and yelled, "Look mommy, cool runner girls like you!!" :)

Not much going on...

It has been a while since my last post -- not much has been going on around here. I have been really busy with work lately. The good thing about that is -- my numbers are looking great, which means my bonuses have been nice, too! If I keep it up, I will be in the running at the end of the year for a trip to Hawaii! Our company sends the top 5% or so of their sales reps every year on a free trip somewhere... Keeping my fingers crossed for that :)

Evelyn is getting really close to crawling... she rolls around to get where she wants, and she also kinda crawls in reverse -- but she hasn't got the forward motion down yet. She is starting to do the rocking on all fours thing though. I think crawling is just around the corner!!

I booked a trip to Michigan for the end of October. I have been feeling a little home-sick lately --- so I used some frequent flyer miles to get a free ticket!! I will be in Saginaw from the 23rd until the 28th. My mom is so excited!! She hasn't seen Evelyn since the 4th of July. Travis won't be coming on this trip. I get more vacation than he does -- so I always need to use days without him every year, or just carry them over until the following year (and then I have even MORE vacation days than he does). I'm excited for the trip --- it will be my first flight alone with Evelyn. She did great on our first two trips -- so I am hoping this one will be the same :)

Here is a silly grin for ya from Sunday morning. I love the jammies she is wearing -- I will be sad when she outgrows them.

Labor Day Weekend

We had a pretty relaxing Labor Day Weekend. It began Saturday with the beginning of Notre Dame's football season. Travis was like a little kid on Christmas!! He woke up at 6:30, jumped up out of bed, showered, and put on his ND shirt -- he was ready for the day. Unfortunately, Notre Dame lost pretty bad. I hope this isn't an indication of what the rest of their season will be like... Travis is always in a bad mood when they lose. I don't want to have a crabby husband every Saturday!

Here is a picture of Travis, Cocoa, and Evelyn ready to watch the ND game:
On Sunday we did our usual church/cleaning/housework stuff... and then met up with Chuck and Kim and a bunch of their friends for Chuck's birthday. Evelyn still gets a little afraid of her Uncle Chuck for some reason... I think it might be the beard. She never sees anyone with a beard. She was passed around all night -- lots of people wanted to hold her -- and Chuck was the only one to make her cry. Here is a funny pic:On Monday we went to the Evergreen State Fair. It was a lot of fun. My favorite part was the pig races. We saw them last year, too. These little guys really get racing around the track -- it is so cute!!

I also love to walk through all of the animal barns at the fair and look around. Lots of sheep, goats, pigs, cows, etc.. Here is a mommy pig and her 10 babies. Can't imagine having to feed that many little ones!!
Just had to include this picture because I thought it was cute!!
