Several things are on my nerves right now. So much so, that I feel compelled to share. This is just my opinion. We can still be friends/relatives if you disagree with me.
#1) The 100 year flood.
We weren't here for the flooding that took place 2 weeks ago, thank goodness, because I have heard it was pretty bad. What annoys me about it is that parts of Lubbock are down right DISGUSTING from it, still. Specifically the parks. We went to the park on Wednesday it it was so NASTY! The benches and picnic tables are covered in a dirty film, it stinks, it was just GROSS! Clean up, Lubbock!
An unwelcome side effect of all the rain we have gotten. Even Deacon has mosquito bites, and he is hardly ever outside! They are out day and night, warm weather and cool weather. GROSS!
#3) The Economy
Now that the US stands on the verge of a recession, let's bail out all the stupid banks and stupid companies who made stupid decisions. I'm pretty sure I could support my family for the next 100 years on the severence packages that the CEO's of Fanny and Freddie are going to get. (I'm speculating, I really have no idea about their severence packages.) Several months ago, back when we started paying the same price for a gallon of milk that we were paying for a gallon of gas, many senators, presidents, and other people who are supposed to be really smart said that the economy was FINE. Well, that's because the economy always seems great when you are a millionaire. Funny how you never hear from working class people on the news who are actually feeling this in our wallets - maybe it's because we're AT WORK.
#4) My House
My house is in a perpetual state of mess. I pick up when there is a spare moment, but those moments are few and far between. Besides, when I do have a free minute, I might need to shower, brush my teeth, etc........
That's all for now.
I feel much better.

Last week, my mom gave me and Lola some halloween themed cookie sprinkles. Then, we found her a mini halloween cookie cutter set. So, she has been asking for several days to make halloween cookies. Though some may say it's too early for Halloween decorations and such, I like to ring in most holidays early and celebrate them for as long as possible. (My Christmas tree goes up on or before November 15th.) We finally got down to our cookie making tonight.

For those of you not pictured that we got to see, we had a wonderful time with you - Summer, Cory, Ray, Shauna, Chris, Mike, etc.....I hope I didn't miss anyone! Thanks for taking time out to spend with us.
She had red cheeks because she had just come back from "Sir's" Park.There is a difference between "Sir's" Park and "Kelli-mom's" Park, but you will have to ask Sir about that. :)
Papa (My Dad) and Deacon
Deacon in a sink bath
Playing in the high chair
Dean has always had a thing for aviator goggles.....so why not put them on your baby?
Lola watched DVD's the whole way there and back, with headphones. That DVD player was one of the best purchases we have ever made.
Little man in his swim outfit-it's for next summer but it fits now. :)
Deacon checking out the waterfall with Daddy.
Lola remembered a lot of what she learned at swim lessons!
Deacon belly-surfing on the waterfall.
Several people were meeting Deacon for the first time! (There may be more pictures of him in this post for that reason.)
Leslie (my cousin) and Deacon
Aunt Greta (my aunt) and Deacon
Scott (my cousin) and Deacon
Aunt Hillary and Deacon-not meeting eachother for the first time, just chillin' out together.
The Friday thru Sunday that we were there, Lola went to Tampa, FL with my Dad and Michelle. Yes, I let her go on an airplane without me. She has traveled a lot with her grandparents since she was very little, and she really wanted to go. I missed her, but we talked on the phone every night and she picked out some seashells for me!!! Since she was about one she has spent weekends away with both sides of our family, because they would call and ask if they could have her. She is very close to all of her grandparents (all 9 of them including great-grandparents) and they have all proven themselves trustworthy in our eyes.

Lola's "clubhouse" made of kitchen chairs, my afghan, the highchair, and her tray.
Lola likes to "rock" Deacon in the rocking chair.
Deacon loves his toes!
Laughing at his sister

Our sweet little chubby nugget is 5 months old today! He can sit by himself like a little tripod for a couple of minutes at a time, and then the weight of his belly pulls him down, or he gets tired and tips himself sideways. He is trying to sit up by himself, maybe by 6 months he will.
Here's a sideview of the tripod.
