What We've Been Up To

I cannot get my act together lately with the whole blog thing.  Only 5 blogs written in September?  That's terrible!!  I like writing frequently but I kind of feel like there's not much to talk about.  Maybe that's not true but I feel that way.  Plus I'm just tired.  Plain and simple!  But I'll let you in on a little bit of what's been going on with us the past week.

This past Saturday morning Sara Kate woke up at 4 am.  Yes, you read that correctly.  4-freakin-a-m-on-a-Saturday.  If she wakes up during the night, she will usually cry for a minute and go back to sleep.  But I got up with her hoping I could calm her back down before she got too worked up and wouldn't go back to sleep.  I rocked her for about 20 minutes and put her back in her bed.  She said 'Ka Kate play (Ka Kate is what she calls herself).'  I said, 'No, Sara Kate goes back to bed and mommy will be right here (in her chair).'  After about 20 more minutes of her rolling around in her bed she sat up and said 'Ka Kate gets milk then Ka Kate watch a moobie (movie).'  Ugh.  I said ok and went and got her milk and the iPad.  We watched Blues Clues, played animals, played puzzles, and daddy got up around 7 and took over!  I was able to nap off and on until 9 but I was still exhausted since it was a long day with a night football game.
When I loaded this picture to the computer I realized it was blurry.  Oh well.  It shows just how tired she was!
Speaking of football, we won't speak about that right now.  Our beloved Hogs are doing terrible and it's hard to stomach, especially during a year where things were supposed to be amazing.  We blame our non existent looney toon coach because our team has far more talent that what's being shown out on that football field right now.  *Sigh*  But we still love our Hogs.  I bought some red skinny jeans this weekend.  I felt so in style, HA!!  A girl can dream, HAHA!! :-)
We've spent alot of time outside lately.  We've been to the park and there is a new elementary school not far from where we live that has a neat big playground.  I took Sara Kate there twice over the weekend.  It's convenient so that's nice.
Conquering the BIG slide at the playground...big girl!
 Chris took these when we were at Gulley Park last week.  I love the images he captures.
Finally, we attempted some family pictures last night.  I have the most perfect images in my head of candid being in the moment photography, and while we got a few cute shots, pictures with a 2 year old are so hard!  She won't sit still, she won't listen, she certainly won't look at the camera and she wants to run the opposite direction.  Once again, a girl can dream (the Gulley Park candid's are perfect but we need the family there too!).  I'll share others eventually but will leave you with this one and say family picture FAIL!!  HA!
