With the weather so nice today we decided to head out to the UW arboretum to enjoy the colors of fall. Both the kids really enjoyed tromping around outside. Mora was full of what's that? and what's it doin'? It was a nice break from our generally hectic weekends.

Vice Presidential Debate

Sick, sick, and more sick

Poor Moira has now been sick for two weeks. She started out with a nasty cold which lasted about eight days. She was better for a day or so and then was really sick again. After a trip to the Dr we discovered she had a severe ear infection in both ears. The poor girl is in so much pain she just goes up to her room and lies in bed. Every night about the time her pain killer wears off I can hear her start to weep in her room. It just breaks my heart . . . and gives me a new respect for what a tough job being a mom is. There is nothing worse than to see your little babies in pain. Not to be out done Kiah caught Moira's cold about a week ago and according to the Dr the ear infection as well. Luckily it had not progressed as far and she seems to be avoiding the pain associated with it thanks to the antibiotics. According to the trusty Internet the antibiotics should start to alleviate Moira's symptoms today.

You never know what you'll find at the thrift store . . .

After Moira was born I started buying kids toys and books that featured border collies. Moira pretty much showed no interest in them and so I've adopted it as a collection of sorts. I figure that it has a fine enough scope that I wont be getting border collie themed toys for every christmas.

Here's Kess helping to model the giant stuffed border collie I scored at value village today. It was only $3 and that will be more than worth the look on Nick's face when h sees it. I also got Moira's halloween costume, but that will stay under wraps until I get Kiah's.
