Updated Pics!

We've still been amazingly busy. I've been working hard on my Flylady routines both at home and work. I've taken my new timer (that has a vibrate mode!) to work and it's been great for my productivity in the office. A great example at home is that last night I set my timer for 15 minutes and I got the dinner dishes done, setup the coffee pot, shined my sink and wiped down the kitchen counters. I couldn't believe I got all that done in 15 minutes. I got the beginning of the month bills done in two 15 minute sessions.

This past Saturday, I cleaned out the closets in the boys' room. I had Phoebe's old clothes and the old baby clothes that don't fit the boys anymore. Phoebe's old clothes were either given to a friend's daughter (sizes 4, 5, 6 and some 7s) and anything smaller than a 4 went to a Goodwill bag. I separated the old baby clothes into either a bin for consignment or Goodwill. My car trunk is full right now and I'm going to try to get to Goodwill at lunchtime. I'm so proud of me! Now the boys room is much cleaner. We have two bins setup one for toys and one for stuffed animals.

Sunday, we went to church early (8AM!) and then went out to breakfast at Perkins and then went pumpkin picking with our friends. Here are some cute pics. Here's Tom and the boys. They really liked the hayride pulled by the tractor:



Twin pumpkins/twin boys (Tommy is on the left, Liam on the right)


Here's Phoebe and our friend's daughter (the one that got Phoebe's old clothes). She's a cutie patootie.


Here's another good pic of DH and the boys:


Here's a good pic of all of us on the hayride back.


Tommy and Liam also enjoyed riding in a wagon with their sister to get back to the car.


In all the pics of Phoebe, she does have the new appliance from the orthodontist in her mouth. She just got it and she's supposed to wear it at night, but it keeps falling out, so over the weekend, she wore it a bit during the day. It's not a retainer. I can't spell what it's called, but it's bringing her bottom jaw forward. She's being very responsible about the whole thing, so I'm really proud of her!

I can't wait to take the girls to the farm!! Did the boys enjoy it or are they still not thrilled with the world outside their house?

Good for you getting all that done! This weekend I tidied the girls' room and was amazed at all the stuff we had that needed to go! I hope the clothes situation gets easier as they get older...who am I kidding?!

And is it just me, or are the boys starting to resemble eachother now that their hair is longer?

Great pictures, the boys are getting so big and your daughter is a young lady, wow!!
Heather, I know I say this every time you post pics but seriously, those boys are GORGEOUS!

Actually your whole family is. Better watch the boys around Phoebe.

Tommy's spiky hair is SO cute - I want to run my fingers through it.

you're doing great with your routines. I am getting tougher on myself with the computer....:)

I haven't read many blogs for a few months and I was so delighted when I opened yours. The babies are little boys now. So adorable. And your daughter is beautiful. But you do have your hands FULL with family and job.

All 3 of them are getting to be so grown up. ;-)

My sisters twins are nearly hear. I am starting to get scared for her and me with helping her. lol

Glad things are going well!
Your little guys are looking so big and boy-like! I can't wait to do a hayride. I'm also inspired by your timer thing. I've looked into Flylady and was a bit intimidated before, but sounds pretty useful.

Love your pictures! The boys are getting so big! We haven't made it to the pumpkin patch yet, but I am hoping to go this weekend or next. It's just not fall without pumpkin pictures!
