A little of this and that...

If you've noticed that I've been a little MIA from the wonderful world of blogging, this photo might explain why:
Cooper is teething...and none of us are happy campers. For the most part, it isn't as bad as I expected (knock on wood), but I'm not naive enough to think the worst is over.

My little sister also surprised me last week with a request to come visit before she starts school next month...ummm heck yeah! She has been a monumental help with the boys, and made it possible for me to pick up a few extra shifts before Eric leaves for OCS. And speaking of OCS......it has taken over my dining room table (granted, it used to be covered with my misc crap). Since we are stationed at an Air Force Base, Eric has had to make trips to Ft. Benning, GA (4 hrs away & where OCS is located) to commandeer all the necessary items on his packing list. And after copious amounts of money, and one more trip tomorrow, he should have everything he needs. Have I mentioned how much I'm NOT looking forward to being alone for 3 months, BUT the outcome will be well worth it when he graduates on Dec 16th!

And, on a very happy note, I stumbled onto the Halloween costumes for the boys while looking for bottles online.


So, the question is:
Great costumes, or the greatest?

You are right, Mary, they are the greatest, and so are my two grandsons! I'll bet Eric just loved these costumes, since he was raised on Star Wars. Love to you all.

Oh my word, those costumes are too much fun! I don't know what would be worse...teething together or having it one after the other thus extending the time you deal with it!

I love the costumes! And I don't envy the teething or the 3 months without your husband. Yikes! Good Luck!

I think that it is very appropriate that The Coop is teething while wearing a Chewbacca costume.

Love the costumes and the boys look adorable in them. Teething is a nightmare....and times 2 would do me in.

I'm digging the Yoda costume the most :) So in your last post the picture of Cooper totally reminds me of Mike somehow...weird! But I guess ya'll are related ;-)

AWESOME COSTUMES!! They just look adorable Mary!!!!!!

OCS is going to be worth it and the time will fly by - you'll see! Now, to just get your butts to Vicenza, lol!

As for teething, get thee to Walmart pronto!!! Go to the pharmacy section and pick up some Hyland's teething tablets. They are magical and make teething sooooo much easier! Trust me!

You will still love me to bits when you're an officer's wife, right???
