Right now

I love these teeth. Charlotte has a whole new look with teeth, and it's just as cute as ever.
Tucker has been calling me "honey", I love that too. A couple days ago I kissed Tucker and then said, "Whew, we need to brush your teeth, cause your breath stinks!" Since then there have been several instances of him asking anyone who kisses him if they've brushed their teeth. Actually, more like he's accused them of not brushing their teeth.
"Papa, you didn't brush your teeth!"
"Karen, have you brushed your teeth? It smells like you got beans in it."

I'm excited I joined a little book club, I really haven't done much reading for a while. Right now I am reading The Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd, which I am really enjoying. I am also starting Screwtape Letters by C. S. Lewis. I have never read C. S. Lewis, so I am looking forward to that.
I am getting excited thinking about Christmas. I know it's not even October, but this is when I gotta start shopping. I suppose I should enjoy Halloween first. I am looking forward to Abbie's Halloween party. However, my husband is a party pooper when it comes to Halloween. He absolutely does not want to dress up. I wanted to theme our family, I will maybe just leave Trent out. I need to get creative and start working on finding costumes. I wish I could buy fun Halloween decor, but I have budget restraints right now, so I need to get creative with that too.
Also, I need to get sewing, I am going to forget how if I don't start soon. I want to make a bunch of baby blankies, I have a lot of pregnant friends. About 6. I also need to get Charlotte a silky blanky so she stops trying to snuggle up to my undergarments.
Welp, that's about it for today. Off you go.

Visit "What on earth is that smell??" blog. THe link is on my blog. She had links to Halloween costume sites with cheap, fun ideas.
Taj calls Sei "Babe" because he hears me call him that. When Taj is really tired or really wants something he'll say, "Babe. Babe. PLEEEEAAASSSSEEEEE Babe." Too funny our boys!

Those little teeth are the cutest!!! And Tucker is SO funny. I've wanted to read the Bees book, can't wait to hear how you like it. And Screwtape Letters is the best book ever. You'll adore it.

We read the secret lives of bees in our book club too. I was interesting. IF you really want a weird but good one read Life of Pi. I made Brayden's costume this year. He's a pirate. I don't know that sewing save you much money unless you do it enough to have a ton of material already on hand.
There is a radio station that already has Christmas music on. "WHAT THE" as Brayden would say.
