So it has been quite a while since my last posting. Life has been a little crazy around here. Ray has been running around like a chicken with his head cut off. Poor guy, he is so busy. Between coaching and HOSA and just regular classroom stuff he has little free time. But I give him props, he has been doing an excellent job juggling everything and still making time for his family. What a good guy, this is why I love him. And then for me, I guess it just took a little time for it to sink in on how busy it can be with a new addition to the family. I swear I run around the house cleaning all day and then at the end of the day look back and it looks like I didn't do a single thing. It is quite frustrating because I like my house looking nice and clean with dinner made and a treat of some kind made. And I might say, none of those are getting accomplished at the moment. But, oh well, what can you do?
Anyways, tonight we carved pumpkins, or as Logan calls them "punks." It was fun seeing Logan get so excited to color "punks". We let him paint his because the last thing that we would do is let that kid have some sort of sharp object, we would all be in grave danger. But, man, did he have fun.
For another update that I haven't had time to do is on Logan's birthday. It was a fun time because we had Ray's family and my family all here because of Chase's blessing. But Logan had a lot of fun between his presents, grandparents, and his football cake (provided by Grandma Jolley). His prized gift was from Grandpa and Grandma Jolley, a scooter. The kid was so cute when he tore off the wrapping paper and realized what it was. He also got a helmet with knee and elbow pads. We couldn't get him to take off his helmet to even eat. But he got thoroughly spoiled by everyone and it was fun.
But now I need to add a little update about Chase. We might actually have a semi-chunky baby! Can you believe it, from me and Ray! Who would think it was possible! I mean, it's not like he is a sumo-wrestler or anything, but compared to what Logan was, he seems pretty big. He has some fat rolls under his diaper on his legs and I love it. He also has the cutest smiles and he is trying to make sounds out to laugh. All in all, he is a fun baby and I look forward to all the new tricks that we get to teach him.
