Just a little update on what's going on around the Himmelberger House.

The kids are in various stages of getting over a cold. Drew seems pretty much better-I gave him Airborne for kids-and Ava is more in the middle stages of a constantly drippy nose and extra whinyness. They both got their flu shots last week (AAP recommends them for kids under five and their families), which was slightly traumatic for everyone. Dan and I are getting ours tomorrow.

Ava has learned how to take her pants off and does it at every opportunity. It's pretty funny to see her run into the room all proud of herself and pantsless. Hopefully she won't start doing it in public. Drew has been really into riding his bike lately and has been riding around the backyard every afternoon. Sometimes he comes in the house drenched in sweat! I'm glad he's having fun and it gives me a few minutes to be by myself.
That's pretty much all that's going on around here. We're looking forward to a visit from Grandma and Grandpa this weekend, which means Dan and I can finally have our "redo" for our sixth anniversary that we spent in the ER with Drew. We've also got another visit to the pumpkin patch on the schedule, plus the Harvest Carnival this weekend. I can't wait for Halloween, the kids are going to be so cute in their costumes! Drew is going to be Bob the Builder and Ava is going to be a little bee.

ok, confession time. i definitely went through a similar pant-removing stage when i was a little girl and i have to tell you...there's still nothing like coming home after a long day of work and removing those stupid pants. granted, i usually just replace with a more comfy pair, but i feel you ava!! :)

Pants removal is okay... diaper removal can be a little scarier. Molly's into taking her diaper off right now so we have always keep pants on her. (thankfully she doesn't know how to get those off)

Grandma and Grandpa can't wait for our visit TONIGHT!!!! I will happily chase Ava around putting her pants back on.

Love, Mom
