the cutest little monsters E.V.E.R.
ahhh, i could just eat him up!
this monster marches to the beat of a different drummer. love the cowboy boots!
we had a great time at the fall festival... well, it could have been a little warmer, and trace could have felt better, and lucas could have taken more than a 2 second nap on the way there, and i could have remembered my jacket. but ya know. it was good, overall :) i was so happy that i bought these warm outfits for the boys, b/c man, it was cold outside! and trace added extra warmth with his cowboy boots! don't you love it? he had not been feeling well, so when i woke him up from his nap and he refused to wear his "monster toes," out the door we went with his cowboy boots! at least he agreed to wear the costume.

Welcome to Not Me! Monday! This blog carnival was created by MckMama. You can head over to her blog to read what she and everyone else have not been doing this week.
i have not sat at work and procrastinated all day long just because it is monday. that is never my attitude on monday. i always get my work done promply as it comes it. there are never stacks and stacks and more stacks of stuff for me to do on my desk.
ooohh, this next one has a picture. fun! i did not wake up to trace crying at 3:45 AM one day last week... and walk in his room to see THIS.
he did not somehow manage to tump over his toy shelf and make a HUGE mess. i seriously don't have a clue how it happened. after the incident, he was not screaming for mama and nate did not throw him in bed with me. he did not stare at me for the next hour and a half, then cry when the alarm went off and again scream for mama when i had to get in the shower. no, we never have "those kinds" of mornings at our house!
i did not again proceed to buy and use tons more paper products to keep from doing the dishes so often last week. i mean, i LOVE doing dishes by hand since we don't have a dishwasher (seriously, we don't have one!) so i never wait til there are no clean spoons or bottles to wash the ones in the sink.
we did not have our church's fall festival at church on sunday, when it was 45 degrees outside. i did not wake both boys up from their much needed naps to dress them in their matching little monsters outfit. and trace did not yell and scream and cry that he didn't want to wear his "monster toes" and i would have never let my stubborn 2 yr old wear his coyboy boots with his monster costume. and i did not argue with him for 10 minutes before giving in, b/c i would never want things to be perfect after spending so much on the costumes. i am not obsessive like that :)
last, but not least... i did not have to convince trace to go to the dr after the fall festival. he had not been running a fever all weekend. and meme most certainly did not go with us, just b/c trace said he wanted to ride in her van! and of course, since we went strait from the said fall festival, i did not let trace wear his costume, complete with cowboy boots into the dr. nope, not this mama that has it all together :) and we did not leave the dr having paid our $35 co-pay just to hear those dreaded words: flu-like symptoms but flu test was negative. must be a highly contagious cold that will last 5-7 days. really, i was not like ARE YOU FREAKIN KIDDING ME RIGHT NOW? hey, don't get me wrong. i wasn't relieved to hear my kid was fine. and i also wasn't frustrated at hearing what we always hear "let it run it's course." GRRR and ARGHHH
oh, and what's up with these spacing issues. it's not getting on my nerves AT ALL that my blog will not do what i tell it to or space how i want it to. that's not why i have these **** things everywhere to separate my not-me's.
so let's hear it~ what haven't YOU done lately? trust me, it feels great just to lay it all out! so come on. join the fun. mckmama is even giving away another prize this week for joining NMM and linking back to her blog. just check out more info at mckmama.com

This blog carnival was created by MckMama. You can head over to her blog to read what she and everyone else have not been doing this week!
i most certainly did not try and buy gas last week and only get 12 cents from the pump. i did not move to another pump and only get 9 cents from that one. i did not have 2 babies in the car and did not leave them in the car while i went into the gas station and very rudely tell the cashier he needed to put out of order signs on their pumps and then storm out of there. nope, not me!
i did not have to go to the next gas station and try and pump gas there. i didn't have any problems with those pumps, and if i did, i would not have had to go into yet another gas station while leaving my 2 screaming babies in the car to tell them something was wrong with their gas pumps as well. when i finally was able to fill the gas tank up, i did not get a call from my bank checking to see if my card had been stolen b/c it had been used 4 times in 10 minutes. no, i don't have that kind of bad luck! then, i did not go home ranting and raving to my husband about it. and he would never proceed to say "why don't you blog about it on your next not me monday." he does not know me that well at all. :)
i did not use paper cups and plates all last week so i didn't have to do the dishes. i didn't finally give in and ask nate to wash them this weekend, only b/c we were out of spoons. i would never leave a few dishes in the sink for a whole week.
i did not pull a shirt out of the dirty clothes basket and after sniffing it and inspecting it for spit up or stains declare that it was still clean enough to wear again for a meeting saturday morning. i didn't get several compliments on it the 2nd time i wore it. and i didn't totally forget i was wearing a dirty shirt. not me.
lastly, i did not decide to write this not me monday just to try and win a cool prize from mckmama. i would never blog just for the sake of possibly winning something.
so now that i've been honest, let's hear what you haven't been doing lately!

sweet brothers. they are so sweet to each other. trace loves to make lucas smile. he loves to share his juice, toys, whatever he can! and lucas loves when trace gives him attention. they are sweet sweet brothers! and silly too!
well, based on the picture below, can you guess how lucas spent his 8 month birthday? being sick :( he JUST finished up his 2nd round of 10 days of antibiotics on monday for an ear infection that he just couldn't seem to kick. i thought he was finally better. well tuesday he took a 4 1/2 hour nap at meme's house and woke up with a fever of 102. he ran a fever the rest of the day and night and all day wednesday. i took him to the dr wednesday, on his 8 month birthday. i kinda thought it was the flu. poor baby was pitiful. turns out flu was negative. and his ears were clear. both great news, but what's wrong with my baby? dr checks his throat and finally finds the problem. strep test came back negative as well, also a good thing. the not good news is that he has a viral infection in his throat... and they can't give him anything for it. she said to expect a fever for 3-4 days. and fussiness. and drooling. and just a lil boy that doesn't feel well. but i think the worst of it may be behind us. he started getting sick tuesday, and up until yesterday, has had a fever off and on. but he woke up this morning and i think his fever has finally broke! he went on to meme's house, so i know he is in good hands! praise god she is over the flu and is feeling better! and we are also thankful to bisty and poppi who helped out while meme was sick. also poppi watched lucas yesterday while bitsy and trace went to bible study. it's so hard for nate and i to be off work, and my vacation and sick time is GONE. don't know how we'll make it til january... but we will! guess we just won't get paid next time we have to be off!
what baby do you know that smiles with a fever of 102? lucas had a ball playing with the paper on the table at the dr... he did scream the whole way from meme's to roebuck, a 20 minute drive that was so hard for me to make. i was almost in tears too, listening to my poor baby cry! but i knew if i pulled over and got him calm, he would scream again the minute he got back in his seat. as soon as we got there and i got him out of his seat, he was happy the WHOLE TIME at the dr. who wouldn't be happy with their mama holding them? :) and spoiling them? and letting them hit their mama over and over just b/c it made them laugh? sweet baby! oh, and he slept on the way home, like a good lil boy!! :)
