Oct. 5-11 - Jog-a-thon and Dentist


 The girls were still not feeling well. Luckily it was General Conference Sunday so we all got to stay home and watch in our jammies! It was a nice break from 8:00 am church!

 We decorated for Halloween!

 Maisey was still doing her breathing treatments! 


 I made this fall popcorn mix and bought some tins to start the boo-gram in our ward for our FHE activity.


 I painted these banners for our jog-a-thon. 


 I treated myself to my favorite treat. . . for breakfast! :) I'm glad I did because my day just got crazier from there!

 I ended up with 5 kindergartners for the afternoon! That was kind of wild!

 Gage got hit in the head with a croquet mallet.
(His goose egg/bruise lasted for 10 days, including school picture day!)

 Soccer Selfies help practice go a little bit faster!

 My sister sent this to me! She must have sensed that my stress level was at an all time high with our mega-afternoon play date and trying to finish up last minute things for the jog-a-thon. It definitely made me chuckle!


 The BIG DAY!!! The other co-president had been in and out of the hospital over the last week and was too sick to be there. It made things a bit more hectic, but we were still able to pull it all off!

 Gage ran sooo hard and missed running the most laps in his class by one. I was still so proud of him. He ran 13 laps, which is over 2 miles!

 Maisey also ran 13 laps which was the most ran by a girl in her class so she won a prize. She loved that Daddy could be there to watch her run!

 I was soooo glad to have Daddy there too! It was nice to have someone to run around like crazy with! He is such a great support!

 Mom was too exhausted to make dinner that night, so we ran to sonic! Miley took her corn dog off the stick and stuck it on her straw. What a goof!

I splurged on a strawberry lemonade (it sure didn't taste nearly as refreshing as a dr. pepper would have) and spilled it in my lap on the way home. It was freezing and I may have been screaming! 


Today was a no school day, and earlier in the week I had deemed it a cleaning day! The kids were fighting like crazy and Miley was having a particularly grumpy day. We didn't get a ton done, but it seemed like I worked all day!

 I gave Gage a magic eraser and asked him to clean all of the doors in the house. I was working in Maisey's room and came out about 30 minutes later  to this!

 Apparently he thought I meant the fridge door, which he scrubbed for those 30 minutes. :( Maybe that's why it seemed like I didn't get much done because I was walking around cleaning up after my "helpers". Cleaning with kids is such a challenge!

 We finally called it a day and headed to the park, where Shaun met us after work. 
Yes, I took a picture of my husband's butt. And yes, I posted it for everyone to see! :)

 We got adventurous and tried an authentic Mexican food place on Front Street. It wasn't great, maybe because I couldn't get over the fact that it looked like a box full of diarrhea. 

I went out for the night with some friends, so my dinner actually was frozen yogurt! It was so fun to catch up with them!

 I left Shaun with a project to complete while I was gone. The faucets in our two bathrooms were nasty, falling apart, and they were the cheap ones. So I bought him all the parts, sent him a couple of YouTube videos, and left for the night!

 By the time I got back he had them both changed out and had replaced both toilet seats! Sometimes he surprises me with his handiness! :)


Gage didn't have an actual soccer game this week. Nike came to town with some drills and games for the players, so I didn't end up going. I opted to stay home and clean some more (you know, since I didn't get much done the day before), while Shaun took Gage to the Nike Day.

 The girls stayed home as well, and Maisey's job was to keep Miley happy and out of my way! They built a block castle for all of their princesses. Maisey is seriously such an awesome helper!

 The kids each had dentist appointments!

 Sparkly clean teeth for everyone!

 Miley picked out this crazy headband as her prize! She was pretty proud of it!

 Dad was feeling a bit jealous, so he had to have a turn!

That afternoon, Maisey went to a birthday party of a girl from her class as school. I was super hesitant about sending her to the party. I didn't know the family very well, and from what I did know I just wasn't sure about it. Shaun and I talked about it and we decided we would let her go. When I pulled up to the house I was seriously having second thoughts. We talked about it and Maisey suggested we say a prayer to know if she should go inside or not. Right after we finished our prayer, one of her other friends from her class pulled up with her mom and the mom was going to stay at the party, which made me feel a million times better! That was a neat experience to share with Maisey on how Heavenly Father can answer our prayers.

Later that night Shaun and I went to see Meet the Mormons. I had my phone out ready to take a picture of the lady in our ward who was on screen for about 5 seconds. I missed her by about a 1/2 second, and this was the picture I got. Oh well! The movie was definitely worth seeing once, but not one I would buy.

box full of diarrhea....mmmm!!! gage's head from the mallet-yowzers!!! and that's cool you knew somebody in the movie. My friend's uncle is the navy coach. And she had the same last name growing up so it was cool hearing it the whole section of that movie. :)

That Nike thing was like a practice, so you didn't miss much. I was a little disappointed. We go to the same dentist! What a fun jog-a-thon!
