so it looks like we may be spending the weekend at home. *sigh* Nolan has the croup and seth has an ear infection and this morning started coughing and it was eerily reminiscent of Nolan's cough. Hopefully it was a fluke, but I am seriously thinking he's getting it too.

About to FREAK out....

I got the job! I start Monday. Life is about to get a whole lot more interesting... I need work clothes (I'll be working half days, going to school in the a.m. work in the p.m.)... need to get Aaron introduced to the daycare staff, need to come up w/ a solid plan of how dinners/chores/baths and the like will be handled, since it's likely that I will be getting home AFTER the kids are having dinner.

not too sure how I feel about this, but overall I am really looking forward to paying off some bills ... albeit in small increments.

hey, gimme that

Happy Birthday Bubelah

My baby is one year old today. He started his first day of daycare today... I'd like to say he was weeping with joy, but sheer terror is a better way to put it. *sigh* I might add that Nolan's been having kind of a rough time adjusting to daycare, and when we dropped seth off in nolan's old class nolan put his henry in his old cubby and was ready to go. Poor buddy, he loves Miss Sonja and that made me feel somewhat guilty that he's in a 'big boy' class now... BUT, when we did leave (seth was sobbing) nolan went into his class and didn't cry for the FIRST TIME since he started back! woohoo!!!!

so yeah... Happy birthday to my little bubber, I cannot believe it's been a year already.

Big Weekend

We had seth's birthday party this weekend, the big day is actually tuesday, here are the pics. We had a fabulous turnout and he was very very spoiled, it was so great to see everyone! Nolan isn't in many pictures at all because he was having the time of his life playing outside with some of his cousins.

Sunny Days...
Hanging out with his buds

Mouthfuls of Fritos
this picture amuses me greatly, both seth and uncle gary (his godfather) have a mouthful of fritos... same expression!

Seth's stand in
seth got bored and crawled away during rip and tear time, so Julia decided "well if he's not going to open presents I will!" It was HILARIOUS!

The boy loves his cake

Lucas was not thrilled to be part of the party scene

Done, done, done
not happy at all to be wiped down

btw, the pictures do no justice to how he attacked his cake, the child was in hog heaven with that cake. It was too funny!

My mind is swimming right now. I had a job interview this morning with a government agency that I really, really, really, REALLY want to work for... and I think it went well, but I'm not sure... I always think I did well.... Please keep your fingers crossed for me! I would be working half days, which means I would leave school at 11:30 and then drive into seattle, park at Aaron's work, bus it into the city (about a 10 minute ride if that) and then walk a few blocks to work. I really really want it... did I mention that? I hope to hear sometime near the end of next week... I was told in the beginning though that my teacher and the gal that gave me my mock interview both highly recommended me for the job(!!!!!).

This means big changes will be afoot in our household... I am on a post interview high, my head is filled with what ifs and I have a million and a half things to do before sethy's birthday party tommorrow. It's going to be a busy night!!!

These were all taken at a sprinkler park I discovered 3 days before it closed. *sigh* that's ok, at least we know about it now, and will use it again next summer.
