Axel was feeling better a couple nights ago so we decided to play a little music, dance around and let off some steam. For some reason Axel thought it was hilarious when I had Chloe dance with him.

Also Axel finally likes books. He'll bring them to you to read and will usually sit through a whole pile of books. He even sits by himself some times and looks at all the books. They used to just be another thing to throw around so it's pretty exciting for me. We have already made a couple trips to the library to get a big bag of books.

Haven't posted in a while because our Internet was down....but it's back now. We were looking for cheaper Internet but I guess it doesn't exist and I guess we're just lucky that it comes all the way out here to our town.

First of all I'm very thank-ful to be a stay at home mom but some days I feel like I'm going crazy. Kent has been working long hours and then spending some of his time off hunting. Then when he is home we are both chasing after kids. I guess I feel my main problem is conversation (face to face) without the constant interruption of kids would be nice once in a while.

Both kids are sick. Axel has a running nose and is very irritable. Adelynn is very congested and has a little cough. I hope they both get better's hard to watch them be so miserable.

Kent finally had a day off yesterday and it was wonderful. We got lots of errands run together and it was just nice to be able to spend some time with him. It was also quite a treat to get a break from the kids here and there.

Now to figure out how to get all the dishes done, clothes washed folded and put away, ironing done, supper ready and take care of two sick kids without going insane. I'm exhausted just thinking about everything I need to do. Well I better end this here and get to work. Hopefully next post will be alittle more cheerful.:)

Axel wanted to hold his little sister. He was trying to situate her on his lap so he could hold her all by himself...of course that wasn't going to happen but he tried.

Axel loves playing with the magnets Grandpa and Grandma Kramer got him.

A couple nights ago Axel and Chloe were chasing each other around the kitchen. I think it was close to half an hour they ran around taking turns being the chaser.

This last week was fairly uneventful. The highlight of my week was when Kent my wonderful, caring and thoughtful husband came home early on Thursday to cook a special supper. It came exactly when I needed it most. I didn't want to even think about making supper and the kids had been driving me up the wall...mostly Axel with all the whining. I was so happy to see his smiling face and even more happy to have a wonderful supper cooked for me!

This week-end was also wonderful. My parents spent the week-end at our house. Axel loves Brenton and had a blast playing with him. It was also nice to have a little break with Adelynn. Kent went hunting on Sat. saw a few deer but didn't shoot anything. He's holding out for the big buck!:) That evening we all went out to eat at the Asian House. Yumm! Then Sun meeting, a nice little family lunch and some games. My studious little daughter.

Addy being all talkative and smiley. This outfit is the one Tiffany wore when she was a baby. Patty do you remember it? How old was she when she wore it?

Caught Adelynn cooing a little but couldn't get any really good videos. Everytime I turned on the camera she would stop and look at the camera all big eyed.

Our little diaper clad chef in his new kitchen. The kitchen is actually a present for Adelynn from my parents but it looks like it will end up being well used by both kids:)

Trick or Treating

So we weren't sure we were going to take Axel trick or treating this year but the weather was just too nice to pass it up. We're glad we did because we all had a lot of fun. Didn't have much time to come up with his costume...I guess if it works out I'll try alittle harder next year.:)
Here's our little monster. He had lots of fun passing out candy to the other monsters that came knocking. He must have looked like a fun kid because there was a few that wanted to stay and play.:)
