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!

Oh my Asher certainly does look like Kaidi! I'm so glad that you are having such happiness in your life.

Your family is beautiful.

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 :)
