September 2013

I always mean to blog more, but can't seem to manage more than one post a month lately.  I feel so bad because what is posted here are the only pictures I took for the month of September :(  Oh well, at least it didn't take me much time to put them on the computer and edit them.  I really need a better picture organization method, but that is a massive project that probably won't happen until the kids are older.  

This is from a park play date.  The kids spent a lot of time playing in this mud puddle.   At least Cooper is prepared with his rubber boots!

As we were leaving, Alex picked this bouquet of "flowers" for me. *swoon*

 A blurry phone pic, but at least all three kids are looking at the camera!

We went to Lakeside Amusement Park on Labor Day again this year, and Mary was old enough to go on the rides this time.  

Alex loves to play "rocket".  He puts on his space suit costume and sets up seats and a "control panel" on his bed.  We visit all the planets and fix problems that are going on, like firestorms :).  He talks about supply pods and rovers, and it cracks me up.  I think he gets a lot of it from a show he watches on Netflix called "Lunar Jim".

Even though our Saturn had pretty low mileage for an older car (62,000), we were spending a lot on repairs, so we thought we should get rid of it before the cost of repairs became more than the car is worth.  Alex wanted a car with good MPG and all-wheel drive for those snowy commutes to work.  Subaru's were rated the highest in the areas we wanted, so here is our new car, a 2013 Impreza!  We love it so far, and it was a hassle-free process selling the Saturn on Craigslist.

Lucy is 10 months old!  She just pulled up to a standing position for the first time last night on Mary's bed.   I can't wait until she is walking so I don't have to constantly be digging things out of her mouth.  My floors are definitely not clean enough for a baby that rakes the floor with her fingers looking for the smallest crumb to put in her mouth :(  She is so much fun though, and Alex and Mary are thrilled that she is able to play with them more and more.

Alex bought these beautiful "1st day of fall" flowers for me, and they still look almost as beautiful today, weeks later!
