Lack of Motivation

I have things I could post about, but I'm just feeling a lack of motivation. I've been so slammed with My Babes and Kids blog, sometimes double booking my days that I've been neglecting this blog. I have pictures to post as well, I'm hoping to get some up soon.
You know when you feel like you are pushed and pulled in so many directions that you just want to sit and cry? It seems I've done that a lot lately. I can cry on the drop of a hat, whether I'm happy, sad, or yes - watching the biggest loser. Thank goodness I have such awesome family and a wonderful hubby to pull me out of a funk when I get in one. I'm not sure where to dig for motivation though. I don't get dressed unless I absolutely have to. If I do a load of laundry or two, it's a big accomplishment and I feel like my patience is thin a lot of days. I guess I just need to go to bed and hope that tomorrow is better.

Girl's Night - New Moon

My sister Avry and I headed out for a girl's night last night. It was much needed and fun to spend time with my sister. We had tickets for the "Fang" event at the Gateway mall. Believe it or not, I got tickets back on the 15th of September so it was a long time in waiting.
Before the movie, we shopped around the Gateway and went to dinner at a delicious Mexican restaurant which I can't even remember the name of. We headed to the movie 40 minutes before it was to start and waited in a ridiculous line. I didn't think we would have to as we had reserved seating, but I guess it was for our Edward goody bag. After we got our bags, we headed into the theater to see it decked out in Edward.
I really loved the movie. I thought the action scenes were awesome. It was cool to see the werewolves phase and the vampires fight. Plus Jacob and Edward looked fabulous. I started out team Edward and really liked Jacob a lot by the end of the movie. The acting was better than the first and although it didn't follow the book 100%, I think they did an awesome job. Thanks Avry for a great night with lots of laughs and plenty of girl time!

Dinner was that good - mushroom enchiladas

He almost looks disgusted, lol.

Have you seen Jacob's muscles in this movie? Enough said.

Chandler's 4th Birthday

For Chan's Birthday we headed down to Chuck E. Cheese. Since his Birthday was on Sunday the 1st, we went on Saturday which was also Halloween. He is constantly talking about Chuck E. Cheese so he was thrilled. I found a crazy awesome coupon and we got 100 tokens for $10. Everything is only 1 token so Chan had a hay day. His personal favorite was Ski-ball. Can't say I don't blame him, it is pretty fun.

On Sunday, the Birch's came over for dinner, cake and ice cream. Chandler was so happy because he kept asking if Carson was coming for his birthday. Marshall made the cake, which is his mom's recipe, so good. Funny story - Marshall had the cake cooling on top of the stove. Chandler decided that since it was his, he would skim across the top. He took a huge chunk out of it. So Marsh turned the cake upside down, frosted it, and it worked great. I know it doesn't look pretty, but it was delicious. I just don't know how other moms make these incredible cakes. It's just not up my alley. I tried a dragon cake last year. It turned out ok but was a ridiculous amount of work.

A little bit about Chandler at age 4:

Height - 39 inches (Right around there)

Weight - 36 lbs

Wearing - size 4T shirts, and 4 or 5T pants. (Depends on the brand.)

Loves - Playing the Wii, red ball (it's what he calls game on the ipod touch), his Leapfrog Tag System, playing outside, swimming, preschool, Tom & Jerry, Little Einsteins, going to primary, playing with friends, riding his trike, wrestling.

Eats - 2-3 corn dogs in 1 sitting, lots of chocolate milk, chicken nuggets, chinese food (aka Kung Fu Panda Food), and ANYTHING that he can dip in ketchup. We seriously go through a huge bottle every few weeks.

Chandler is such a good boy. He has his moments of melt down, but is very obedient and cute. He is constantly saying funny things and is great at giving hugs and kisses. We are really blessed to have this handsome little boy.

Scary Witch

A week before Halloween, my parents were down here. My dad wanted to get Chan a Halloween costume so we ventured to Walmart where there was NO selection. Chandler finally found a witch hat and decided that he wanted to be a witch. (Yes, I know witches are technically girls so we will call him a warlock.) We found him a nose and all. So on Halloween, we got him all dressed up and took some pictures. It was funny, but short lived.

He decided he didn't want to be a witch after all. He ended up wearing his dragon costume from the previous two years to go trick or treating in, and Rowan wore the lion costume that he wore last year. I didn't get pictures of the boys in their costumes before trick or treating, oh well. This was the first year that we've actually gone trick or treating. Rowan lasted all of 5 or 6 houses, but Chandler was all about it. He got into a rhythm and loved it. Because we live amongst townhomes, we got hit hard and ran out of candy quickly.
