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!
