random thoughts on Monday

We had a wonderful time this weekend being surrounded my friends.  We love our friends.  But, I am so glad it is over.  I don't feel like I over did the party, but planning and throwing any party (small or large)  is tiring.  I didn't want to get off the couch all day yesterday.  We ate left-overs and snacked all day long.

It is so hot right now.  I know I sound like I'm on repeat. We are on day 14 of over 100 degree temperatures.  We have solar screens on the west side of our house.  It helps so much to block the evening sun, but I am thinking we will get them on the east side of our house also.  Our house gets so hot.   I just worry that the screens will make our house WAY to dark and cave like.  At this point though I think they would be worth it!  I'm so thankful for our air conditioner.  It is working itself to death right now.  There is talk of a cold front heading our way.  Maybe it will cool us off to what? Around 97 degrees?  haha!

I woke up in the middle of the night with Layla.  She had a bad dream about the police chasing her though a forest.  They were flashing a big read light into her eyes and helicopters were flying overhead.  Bless her heart, she has been involved in so many police know.  Really?  Why would a 6 year old dream that?

Can you tell she got makeup for her birthday?  Let the obsession being. 

Hayden is really talking up a storm lately.  He talks non stop and I love it!  Having two kids that talk all the time is crazy though.  Their conversations are quite comical.  Hayden has been talking super fast, so fast that his brain works harder than his mouth.  He stutters.  Layla stuttered for  about 6 months and stopped.  I hope the same goes for Hayden.

I can't believe school is starting in a little over a month.  Where has summer gone?  It seems like it has flown by.  I am excited about shopping for school clothes with Layla.  She is so indecisive though, so sometimes shopping with her can be stressful.  I'm hoping to browse a few websites to get clothing ideas before we shop.  I feel bad...I think she got her indecisiveness from me.   She doesn't like shorts, but loves dresses, but has to have tights or shorts underneath.  She loves to wear tennis shoes, but wants her dresses to look sporty enough to wear with tennis shoes.  Blah blah...decisions decisions. 

If you made it to the end of this post...yeay!  This is our family scrapbook and I am glad I can post randomness.  It seems like random things are the most fun to read as time passes.  I can also look back next year and see how hot it was this year.  All I have been doing is whining about the heat.  I'm on my own nerves!

Have a great Monday!

No more Cops for Layla. I think I like her style-cute sport dress with tennis shoes for comfort. I must admit I did wear tennis shoes with a khaki skirt once...I was only taking a driving trip, but I'm sure somebody saw my fashion forward trendstarter!

I love random so ramble on! Poor Layla and her bad dream...I wonder where she got that from. Love the eye shadow. It's going to be really hot hear too this week...makes me just want to stay inside. Caleb stuttered for a bit too because he was so excited. He doesn't do it anymore. I think his brain was just moving faster than his mouth :)
