Review Extravaganza Week 3

It's time for part three of the Review Extravaganza 2011!!!  This week covers July, August, and Sept!!! So come on and link up with us:  Me, Emmy, Mimi,Em, Grumpy Grateful Mom, Runner Mom, Janette of Johansen Journey and Impulsive Addict!



July was a crazy busy and super fun month for me!  It started off with a most grand adventure with my lifetime bestie!  Love you Lou!  Muah!  She came to So Cal with her daughter for college orientation and I went with them.  We didn't cause too much trouble.  hehe.  
I know I also saw my other bestie in there somewhere...I have pictures to prove it!
Miss you Emmy!XOXO

We also got a special visit from Rich's parents.  They took the kids on special adventures and then we all went to Knott's Berry Farm! Yes indeed July was a crazy busy month for us.

 And some how we managed to get to the beach more than once!!!

August meant we had little or no time left to prepare for school...but before any of that could happen....a very special event took place!
I don't mind being a "great" aunt, cause I already am!  ;)


There was a whole big drama and roller coaster getting Emily all set for school.  I was getting more and more frustrated by the minute.  She literally didn't have a school to claim until the day before!!!! But she got where she needed to be.  And now finally is settled in her school. And more importantly it is where her friends are.

So....school started up again...and because I had three big promotions in June, I had three big starts in "fall."  A big First Grader, Middle School, and "gulp" high school!

September is a pretty special month in our house...but before I go there....I want to talk about something really important(heh)I love to recap Dancing with the Stars, and September it was coming back with a cast, that at the time I was less than happy with.  So I came up with my own picks!

We celebrated MY birthday in September....
We celebrated Kristin's birthday!



And it was my 18th anniversary...even though I was convinced it was the 19th.  I don't do math! 
Now it's your turn to review and link up!!!

My Weekend....

My weekend started off like this.  I started with a sore throat on Thursday.  I was feeling kind of run down.  By Friday night (pictured) I was at death's door practically begging to be let in.  We promised the kids shopping and a visit with Santa!  I refused to break my promise no matter how horrible I felt.  Unfortunately, Rich was coming down with it too.  So we both just sucked it up.


Saturday we alternated sleeping and being a parent.  Kristin was the "parent-aide" and Emily was the assistant.  Ryan was most awesome.  I called on my visiting teacher and had her bring dinner to us.  I had to drive to Orange County to pick up my nephew--because I said I would.  Luckily I was feeling much better than that!  But I was still down. 

Sunday was church, lunch at my mom's with the fam and the driving all over the place to take one nephew one place and the other home.  What a day.  Rich was in recovery mode. 

So this week I am taking time off from blogging...until Friday for week three of the Review Extravaganza 2011!!!  I will be getting ready for Christmas, getting the house in order and catching up with all my bloggy pals!  I love you all have a wonderful week!
