Hey Hey!

I promise I have not fallen off the planet! I have been so busy the last few weeks that I have hardly even opened my laptop longer than to check any fb messages and close it up.. maybe a few episodes on hulu too! :) But I was doing laundry most the time while watching those! Today is Wednesday, October 12 and it has almost been a month since I last blogged! Wow! Where has the time gone?? :) I swear I just has Asher last week! :) Since I last blogged, Gregg has made another trip to NC in which I had an AWFUL week with Asher. He didn't sleep worth a toot!! We picked Gregg up from the airport that Friday night and Asher slept a 6 hour run! Gregg said that he must have felt the need to stay up through the night to keep an eye on his mommy and sister! :) His sleeping has got much better over the last few weeks. I have been in the works of Kaidi's birthday party for this year! Gregg and I are making her a play kitchen for her birthday. I am so excited about it. I went and picked out the fabric for part of it this past Saturday. Here's a glimpse, The kitchen set is built just like this one
Simple Play Kitchen Stove
Kaidi's kitchen is going to be RED!! And here are the fabrics I picked out to make her little sink curtain:

I can't wait to finish it and see her face when she gets to play with it!

This past weekend, Gregg and I bought bikes and a bike trailer (for the kids to ride behind us in) I am excited about having them and being able to get out as a family and exercise! I have to get in shape for sure though, because riding a bike is a lot tougher on the legs then I remember as a kid. We are planning on making a trip to Callaway Gardens again to see the Fantasy in Lights and we are going to take the bikes with us. 
Here are some pics from the past month. I am also adding a picture of Kaidi when she was the same age as Asher and want you to see how much they look alike! It's unreal! I will just go ahead and add it first! :) Enjoy!

Last Sunday, we took a little family trip to our local state park. Every October and November, our Trailmasters have what's called "Scarecrow's in the Park" where members of our community (individuals, businesses, etc.) make a scarecrow to put out there for the public to enjoy. We went and enjoyed a nice little stroll with the kids and the weather was absolutely beautiful! Here are some pics from that afternoon
Isn't that last picture beautiful??

Please say a special prayer for my Kaidi bug, she has pneumonia and has had a pretty rough week. She has been running fever since Sat. night and today I took her to have blood work and a chest xray done and then she ended up getting a shot at the doctor so she has had a very rough day today in particular. She is such a trooper though. Love that Little girl! She is so funny. The other night she was sitting between Gregg and I on the couch and he asked her who Daddy's Princess was and she said, "I Daddy's princess" and I said, No I'm Daddy's Princess! And she said, "No Mommy, You a ballerina!!" :) Where on Earth she got that I have no idea! Then I asked her what My name was because she has started calling me Mommy Ramer and Daddy Ramer and she said, "Mommy" and I asked her again and she said, "Meref" I guess she was right! :) anyway. Have a great rest of the week and weekend! By the way, I am now working at the daycare where the kids go, so I am able to be with them all day long! :) I really like it, I have been there about a month now and the first few weeks were tough to get adjusted to. I have had a desk job for the past 6 years so I had to get use to being on my feet all day long again. I have adjusted and really love working with babies/children. I mostly work with the babies but every now and then I get to venture to the other rooms!

Hi, I just found your blog linked from a friend and absolutely love the kitchen you are building for your daughter! I was wondering if it was a kit or made from plans, or any link(s) to info? Thanks so much! I love the fabric you chose too, so cute :)
