Already end of October?? Really???

Omgosh, people its the end of October... Where in the world did this month?? I tell you, Tad's hitch home seemed like it lasted 3 days not 3 weeks. :( We were pretty busy but of course still found time for some laziness. Hunting season came in, so you know Tad hunted alot. Brayden didn't like waking up and finding out that daddy had gone hunting without him. Maybe soon he'll get to go with his daddy and Papa T.

Ohh, I did finally get our gas logs ordered! Go me! They still haven't came in...I wish they would because I'm to cheap to run the heater in the house. Our A/C-heater has been turned off since Saturday! :) Hoping for a nice electric bill. If you know me, I completely FREAK out if its over $200. So you can imagine how freaked out I've been about running the A/C since we've been in the house.

I've started reading a book its called MOMumental. It is sooo hilarious! She's a stay at home mom and tells it like it is. So its a MUST read for all my SAHM's and even working moms at that. I started reading it this past Friday while I was subbing and I'm half way through it... I despise to read, so to have half the book read is doing good for me.

I would also like to announce that Brayden is fully potty trained now, no more pull-ups at night, thanks to his daddy! His daddy got that accomplished while he was home. Go Tadpole! Tad and I started our Christmas shopping last week with a trip to Destin. We got B several things and ourselves a few things too :) We ate at AJ's and OMGOSH...the oysters were FANTASTIC!!!! so big and juicy :)

 Brayden enjoyed painting his pumpkin while Izzy and I painted a bookshelf for his play room. We love our craft days...especially painting :)

Brayden and Tadpole... 2 peas in a pod! These boys run me wild!!

 Eli doing his "I'm so cool" pose... aka Wayne Russell look.... Watch Uncle Wayne next time you see him and see if he doesn't hold his head up like this! :) Of course Max just doesn't pay me any attention and is glued to the movie.

Brayden and I last night taking a picture to send to our Tadpole. :)

Fabo Weekend!

Our weekend was fabulous, a little busy but mostly fabulous! :) Tad rented a huge waterslide for Saturday. They called Friday before lunch and wanted to know if they could go ahead and bring it, they wanted all of Saturday off, so of course we said YES! Just a free day :)Toyia and the kiddos came over, she picked Oki up from school and brought her too.


Saturday, we had Tad's family over for lunch, football and some fun on the slide! I got to hold the newest addition.. Jase! He's such a sweet baby...he's not wild like the other boys! *L*
 Saturday night, Aunt Sam and Uncle Wayne and the kiddos came over for supper. The kids enjoyed playing on the slide of course.
Our Ray of Sunshine :)

Today was opening day of deer season and you know Tad's been in the woods all day! *L* Brayden and I had planned on having a pajamma day but Tad called and said sketters were eating him alive and needed a thermacell. So B and I went to WalMart... aren't we sweet ? :) I did get 4 loads of laundry washed and dried..and one big pile of clothes ironed.

A Ray of Sunshine

So, Our house in finally finished..except getting the logs for the fireplace and all the gas hooked up. The guys finished painting the outside this week!They started painting last Thursday and well... I was a little frightened when I first saw it. *L*I took a picture of what the guys had painted so far and texted it to a few friends and family members. In a nutshell, all of their replies were... "WOW, its Yellow!" to be nice I'm sure.. I know they were thinking in their heads this... "What in the WORLD in Tad and Kayla thinking???" I say this because thats exactly what I was thinking in my head.m My mom doesn't text me back, she calls me and is like are you happy? do you think you need to stop them until Tad gets home and makes sure thats what ya'll like? Basically she was just being my mom and making sure we would be happy with the color. My sweet friend Toyia, just texts me back and pretty much just comforts me and says that its going to look good, its bright but its pretty! :) Such a sweet friend to help me keep calm when I really just want to totally freak out! Don't get me wrong I knew it was going to bright, but just seeing it actually on the house..Oh My! Anyway, I posted on FB something like.." No one should have a problem finding our house now" and Tad's first response was "Is it ugly?" *lol* I said No, its just a ray of sunshine! So then Tad is freaking out, asking if I think we should tell them to stop and pick a different color... I'm thinking in my head.. No, we've already spent $800 or more on this paint..We will just deal with it! Later that afternoon I had a hair appointment so I rode down the dirt road so I could look at the house from the road and it looked SOOOO much better from the road! Now, that everything is finished...white trim/white doors are painted, it breaks the yellow up and isn't like a BAM factor in your face like it was to begin with. We LOVE it now :) I had to call our contractor today about the gutters for the house and he says " I heard I needed to wear sunglasses next time at your house" BAHAHA, I was like Yeah pretty much and we just laughed about it. Then he says, Tad picked it out! *L* Thats the first thing I told Tad when he started having second thoughts about the color! :)We really do love it now though, we are different :) Just call it The Tisdale box of Skittles ;) Okay so I don't have a final picture of the house, but I promise to post next time with the final outcome :)
