What are your kids going to be for Halloween? What are you gonna be? Any fun plans for Halloween?

What's your favorite fall activity?

Have you started thinking about Christmas cards? Do you do them?

dyk nolan is really bugging us for a brother.
dyk he keeps asking us when we are going to start working on his brother...lol
dyk he said on the way home that if he gets a sister he wants a brother after, so him and his brother can watch out for his sisters...lol

dyk - Hi all!!

dyk - Finally cooling off here but I'm sure that it won't last for a while!

dyk - We got to wear pants for the first time this year! I loved it! :-) SO happy.....

dyk - I had my Chinese class....oh my goodness....I learned a bunch of thingns that were just so helpful....things like greetings, numbers and how the numbers work. So now I just have to keep on listening and practicing so I can hear them when I'm ordering stuff. So happy for a good class and a good teacher to explain things! ;-)

dyk - I made soup yesterday -- it was a hambuger tortellini soup with tomatoes, zucchini, carrots. Why is that soup always tastes better the next day? Yummy!!

dyk - DH and I got into the biggest FIGHT this morning.....I got an e-mail from his mom saying that she loooked in stores and couldn't find the carseats that I wanted -- DH and I decided that we wanted a carseat that went up to 30 lbs and 30 inches so that way when it was time all we had to do was use Nikolas convertible carseat. Well she couldn't find any and so I got yelled at because I was too picky and wouldn't trust his mom to pick out stuff. I'm hurt because she has time to get stuff and do stuff for her other grandkids (my SIL's kids have to be over Tuesday and Wednesday night) but it seems so complicated to ask for favors from them....so much work and drama!!

dyk - SO sadly I can't get a carseat, dh is mad at me and I'm considered a dreamer or I have to high of standards. UGH......

dyk - SIGH....I hate getting into disagreements....

dyk - Mostly all this is because we found out that the lady (our landlord) is flying out on Thursday and we found out on Saturday so I could have ordered the carseat I wanted for the price I wanted BUT we can't garauntee that DH's dad will be around to sign for it! UGH!!

dyk - SO MUCH DRAMA!!!

dyk - My boys are not sleeping at all!! Went to bed at 11 pm and were up at 6 am....ugh made for an emotional mommy!!

dyk - Stress eating -- candy corn (that my mom sent over) and drinking Coke with vanilla syrup in it! So good!!

Sorry you and DH got into a fight. I don't think you are asking too much at all. Carseats are very important and it is fine to ask for a certain model that has received high ratings and is safest! Honestly, I hardly trust my parents to put carseats in their car, let alone buy one as they never had carseats for me and don't really realize how important they are (They don't always install them correctly!) One time my mom couldn't get it buckled on both sides so she left one undone! Another time my dad didn't make sure the belt was latched so the carseat about tipped over when they turned the corner!
