There is never a dull moment at the Wood homestead, especially with two very active (did I mention, ACTIVE) boys running (well, one running and the other one zooming around on his hands and knees) around. Here’s a quick recap of the past week or so:

*Miguelito had an abscess/infected bug bite. It had to be drained and tested positive for MRSA. (yes, that MRSA)

*William fell down the entire BIG staircase in our house. All 19 steps. I freaked out. He cried. I cried. He’s fine.

*Our house is officially on the market, and we are hoping it sells sooner rather than later. Many projects in the house were completed and I almost lost my mind (well, what’s left of it) in the process. Now to just keep it clean and ready to show at all times. Should be fun.

*Sweetie came for a visit while Daddy flew to Denver for a 2 day work meeting. We love our Sweetie visits!

*William has learned how to climb up the stairs. Apparently, we need to work on coming down the stairs. (see above)

*Miguelito thinks everything in life must take a nap, including his beloved Ernie t-shirt. As in “Kiss Ernie night night, Miguelito, so he can take a nap while you wear (insert clothing item of the day).” Works like a charm every. single. time.

Much love to all!

Miguel and I took the boys to Chuck E. Cheese for the first time today. I was pretty sure we were going to be for a crazy time since it was raining outside, but we practically had the place to ourselves. It was such a treat! Once Miguel figured out the games took “money” he kept telling me “more money, please.” It was a great morning of family fun! Psst…can you guess which one of us (me or my hubby) worked at Chuck E. Cheese? I’ll give you a hint: It wasn’t me!

Let’s see what that red button does there…

Miguel’s favorite ride. He is posing for the photo it takes at the end of the ride.

Hello, Chuck E. Cheese, you there?

054

See, Mommy, that’s where you put the “money.”

058

Look at those blue eyes!

059

Woohoo! Look at me!

The latest “cheese” face.

On the way home, Miguel wanted me to take a photo of Harry. Harry say cheese!

I was thrilled to find out all of my dad’s sisters were going to be in Dallas for a weekend visit. It is a rare treat to have all of them in the same place at once, so I was quite excited to have them over for a visit. Miguel and William were smitten with their great aunts, especially since they came bearing gifts. We love y’all!

Mommy, what are you doing with the big black thing (aka camera)? I was sleeping.

007

Aww, just a tiny smile for you.

Let me get up here and check that black thing out.
