Mac's first hair cut

The before:

The During:

The After:

Seriously, what a cute kid. He was so good the whole five minutes, of course the toothbrush helped out a lot. And he is currently training for the 2012 Olympic swimming team.... we're hopeful.

"HAVE MERCY!!"...and some home improvements!

I'm thinking "Have Mercy" is the quote of the day in the Wischmeier household! (Isn't that what Jessie used to say on Full House?) This morning started off a little bit crazy because three handymen were in our house doing some work for us, and that's always a little bit awkward for me. I guess I just don't feel 100% comfortable with complete strangers in my master bedroom, but I got over it. I have been trying to look busy, but it wasn't working.So I needed to go to the hardware store and pickup some things, I get the kids all ready in their seats, and the battery is dead! ARGG!! So the nice men help me out and jump my car, but apparently we have a funky battery so it took quite some time to figure out how to jump the thing, and then after it was running, we couldn't figure out how to get the hood to shut properly!! And 30 minutes later we were on the road. Mean while Little Mac is not feeling so hot, and he's super grumpy, so that's fun. We get home and things are going fine until I start the washing machine and it starts leaking all over the place... even into the kitchen... Oh man I don't want to deal with this!! Mac is super clingy and Abby is yelling at me to get her something... mean while I am on my hands and knees trying to keep the water in control. I shouldn't be complaining, I know that 100 other things could have gone wrong today, but the days not over, so we'll see.

On a good note, we have been doing some fun home improvements. We hired those handymen to come and install our pretty french doors, making a previous random open space into a fifth bedroom/guestroom. We love the final result, but we still have to paint them. We also have painted our laundry room. We painted it Hot Orange...and I LOVE it! It was quite the task to paint with the kids, but we got it done. Life is good in Houston, lately it's been pretty raining and not nearly as hot...thank the good man above!

Hurricane Schmericane

Hurricane Edouard was headed our way, but really the only thing that happened was lots and lots of rain. Pheww.. I am thankful nothing else happened. We were prepared though (at least for the most part)

So Abby and I decided to go play in the rain puddles and it was actually pretty fun.

Abby's Funny

Abby: Mom come here I have something to show you!!
Mom: Oh my goodness.... (laughing hysterically)


There was a pretty good sale at a children's consignment store near by and we scored some sweet costumes for the kids. Their Aunt Jessica also brought the kids some costumes too... so I can safely say we are ready for Halloween!
