Week 37

Another week has come and gone.  It's all such a blur these days.  Even things at work are really busy, and there is no end in sight.  At least school is going well for everyone, and Rusty is fitting in great with our family.  He's been a nice distraction and stress reliever.  I just wish it was all about play for us like it is for him.  That kitty boy is non-stop fun!  It's wonderful because he reminds us all just to slow down and have some fun even if it's just with a piece of string.  I'm all for that ;0)

Here are last week's pictures:

Day 253- Sunday, 9/9/12
Tyler is back in the garage building again.  This time it's a book/tech case for his room which is a huge work in progress at the moment.  Lego building has taught him well.  Look-- he's reading the directions!

 Day 254- Monday, 9/10/12
Brandon is really enjoying the new kitten but still has time for his favorite girl.  He loves this dog so much, and I love how she can put such a great smile on his face.

Day 255- Tuesday, 9/11/12
Today is a day of remembrance so we stopped off at a local memorial on our way to karate.  All the flags out here are in honor of someone who died in the 9/11 tragedy, and Brandon is really thinking about that and processing what it all means.  Justin waited in the car because he was too embarrassed to be seen in his gi. *sigh*

 Day 256- Wednesday, 9/12/12
 It finally came!  Justin really wanted a spiked puffer fish to hang in his sea-life room, and I actually found a place on-line that sells real ones, dried and preserved for display.  He's thrilled.  It's really ugly and spiky but kinda cool.

Day 257- Thursday, 9/13/12
Look how this kitten has made himself at home.  Rusty was really shy and scared his first week but now he's brave and bold and owns the couch! We're all enjoying his kitty antics.

Day 258- Friday, 9/14/12
 I heard Brandon is Tyler's room which is a big no, no so I went in there to see what was up and was shocked to find Tyler actually playing a card game with him.  It's rare to see these two play together anymore and a nice surprise to find when it happens all on its own.  Ignore the mess, Tyler's room is still under construction.  We're waiting on his new desk and some wall art before it can completely come together.

Day 259- Saturday, 9/15/12
It's pizza night.  We splurged and got a Chicago-style stuffed pizza from Papa Murphy's.  Can't wait to dig in.  Yum!

Thats' all for now.  Thanks for stopping by and see you next week.


  1. I ♥ how you capture the every day stuff (like pizza) but the big things too like brothers playing nicely together and I especially like how you documented 9/11. Great pics as always! :)

  2. So understand your busy-ness! ugh!--so understand! love the pictures. That memorial is neat, and the pizza looks yum! Hope you have a great week! Have fun working the concession stand! :)

  3. Love the picture of your son with his pup, so cute. I wish my boys rooms looked that clean. You would think hurricanes had come through. :o)

  4. Aww that's so sweet that your sons were playing so happily together! Your new kitty is adorable! And that pizza looks AMAZING!

  5. Love the look of the pizza and you made me smile about him reading the instructions. I love that you include the real stories that go with the photos like kids getting embarrassed and the changes as they grow older and play differently. Thanks for sharing your week.

  6. Such a cute kitty you have! Adorable pics!! That pizza looks yummy too. Great week!
