Highlights and Lowlights

I am so behind on blogging, but I know there are so many things that I need to write about, so I'm going to fill ya'll in on the highs and lows of the last couple of weeks.

Highlights {in no particular order}:

- David and I went on our first solo date in I can't tell you how long on Friday night.  BDubs + Trivia + Alone time with the Hubs = One Amazing Night  {And, one Blue Moon = One Buzzed Mama!}

- Snickerdoodles {Need I say more?} Uh huh, those snickerdoodles required cream of tartar which I didn't have -- but never fear because I took both my girls to the store by myself.  {And, we survived!}

- Having Michele out to visit was most definitely one of the bright spots of the last couple of weeks.  It was so great to have one of my all time favorite people come and stay with us for a few days.

- We had a fun Skype date with Sarah, Kendall and Katelyn.  Olivia asked a couple of times if she could go over to Kendall's house.  Looking forward to many more Skype dates.

- We had a productive day this past Saturday - we hit up a local Farmers Market and the Oktoberfest in Tempe!

- Michele introduced me to Words With Friends on my iPhone.  I lost my first round to Sandee, but have won my other two against Michele!

-- Hanging with these two, obviously!

-- Lots of precious moments like these...

And the Lowlights:

- David found part of Magnum's molar in his bed one night, so we had to take him to the vet to get a cleaning and make sure he didn't have an infection.  Poor guy had to have two more teeth pulled, which makes a total of TWELVE teeth missing.

He does love the sun though....
And, even though he looks totally anorexic in this picture, he has actually gained a pound!

- We traded coyotes for scorpions out here and we had our first encounter with one a couple of weeks ago.  Unfortunately, it was my poor dad who was the victim of the scorpion sting.  He was getting ready to go for a swim and grabbed his trunks off the rack outside.  A scorpion had been hiding out inside them and Dad got his warning sting as he put on his trunks.  OUCH. That was not a fun afternoon.   Since then, David has been on many a scorpion hunt with the black light and has caught and killed quite a few.

-- It is not fun when both of my girls cry at the same time.  And, I can tell you that happens more often than I would like.

Phheww, it feels pretty good to be {mostly} caught up!
Thanks for hanging in there with me.

Happy Monday from the Valley of the Sun!
