Busy Times with No Excitement

So, I haven't written recently because we have been exceptionally busy running around apparently doing nothing of worth, since there is very little to write about. Daddy is still out of town "saving the world (well, simulating saving the world right now), so it's just been the kids and me at home. Anyways, here are some snapshot glimpses of the random things we have done since my last post.

Catherine now has 3 teeth (2 bottom, 1 top) and another top one on the way. Competitive little girl she is- not only did she beat brother in getting her first tooth, she is trying to CATCH UP to him!!!

Wednesday we visited "Farmer" (this is what Harbin calls my mom because that's what comes out when he says grandma) at work. "Farmer" plays volleyball for the elementary school league and this was the first match of the playoffs. Suwanee Elem (Farmer's team) won the best of 3 games against RockSprings Elem. Harbin made a sign for Farmer and helped in cheering her on. He loved getting to yell and scream for her and even got pretty good at "Give me an 'F'- 'F', give me an 'A'- 'A', so on and so forth). Catherine, less enthused, at cheerios throughout the game.

I have been frantically making hair bows all week and attempting to create a website. With any hope I should be on the way to millionare status in no time (ok, so realistically I may be able to make back what I spent on all the ribbon, but I can dream!). Anyhow, be on the look out for my post about my new website and please pass it along to all of your friends and family who may need hair bows.

Pretty much, that's it. We had the regular lineup of events this week, but nothing out of the ordinary or overly thrilling.

Stay tuned for more exciting stuff next week as we have a fun-filled, action packed weekend ahead!

My little Tooth Fairy!

Ok, so I am almost a week late posting this, but I am still recovering from the shock that babies can actually get teeth before 16 months!!!! Anyways, I am happy to announce that Catherine got her first tooth last Friday (Oct 5). It is her bottom left tooth and it is just too cute. I promise to post pictures if I can ever manage to get one of it!

Proud momma.

Disney on Ice and the Bohanon Family Reunion

The weekend was filled with adventure and pretending (and very little sleep!). Friday, Catherine, Harbin and myself headed up to Chattanooga for the weekend. Scott was leaving town on Saturday, so unfortunately he couldn't go with us.

We started our weekend by going to see the Disney on Ice: Princess Classics show at the McKenzie Arena. Aunt Crickett took us, Lolli, and some 3rd (?) cousins, Sally and Molly. Harbin and Catherine were appropriately dressed for the occasion. Harbin was wearing his shirt that said Prince Charming on the back of it and a crown that Aunt Crickett made for him. Catherine was in an adorable Tinkerbell outfit that Lolli and Crickett had gotten for her. The show was incredible. The performers are so talented, you almost forget that they are on ice!!! Harbin was afraid at the beginning because of some pyrotechnics, but eventually warmed up a bit. He maintained his serious, contemplative face through the whole show; however, his reenactment of the ice skaters later that night confirmed my suspicions that he really did LOVE the show! Catherine put on her best act, and decided to be A ROYAL fidget through the whole thing. She is definitely not the same as Harbin was at that age. Nonetheless, we had a great time and all the kids were super.

Saturday was a fun-filled day. We all loaded up and drove to the park to watch Cade play flag football. I think Harbin enjoyed the game, but would rather have been out there playing himself!! The day continued with football as we watched TENNESSEE STOMP GEORGIA (that's for you, Jessica and Amber). That evening we had homemade pizza (compliments of Chef Crickett) and played games with the family.
Sunday was the Bohanon Reunion up at Cloudland Canyon State Park. We had lunch and visited with family, and the kids had fun playing with all their distant cousins. After the reunion, Crickett, Harbin, Catherine and I hiked down the canyon to what used to be a waterfall. Unfortunately because of the drought we are having here in GA, the waterfall was non-existent and instead there was just a pool of stagnant water at the bottom. Harbin enjoyed throwing rocks into the water and watching this dog try to catch fish. I was excited to finally use my Moby in the hike hold. I was able to put Catherine on my back and hike with her that way! It felt so much better than carrying her on my stomach- she is getting too heavy for that, and it made the uphill climb much easier on my back.

We returned home yesterday after spending the morning and afternoon in downtown Chattanooga playing in the water- who would've thought we could still do that in OCTOBER!! Now we are home and trying to get back in the swing of things. Scott will be out of town most of the month of October and we miss him a lot. We are getting to talk to him on the phone some here and there, but we will be excited when he returns to us!!!

I didn't take many pics with my camera this weekend, so these are about all I have. I hope to get some from other people and I can load them later.

More posts to come!
The mom.

Cagle Corn Maize

What a blast this past weekend was!!!! We took a family adventure up to the Corn Maize at Cagle Dairy Farms. The kids, Scott and I met up with "Farmer" (that's my mom), JonJon (that's her fiance), his three kids (Adam, Christina, and Matthew) and Gina (that's Christina's friend).

We started our fun by tackling the maze. Scott and I took our kids and the girls through one maze, while Farmer and JonJon took the boys through the other side. The boys finished both sides faster than us, but that's probably because I kept slowing them down- carrying Catherine became quite tiring near the end (especially while moving at the girls' pace).

After the maze, the kids had a blast (no pun intended) shooting corn from the potato guns and jumping on the bounce pillows. Harbin enjoyed trying to ride the kiddie sized tractors, but not nearly as much as last year. He had more interest in doing what the big kids were doing this year. He even got to go on the "Cow Train" with just the kids.

We were able to capture some great photos of our adventure which you can see some of here or click on the link to the right. This will be my new way of sharing pictures. The link will take you to the pictures and you have to type in the password that I have listed next to each link.

Following the corn maize, we headed back to JonJon's house for a cookout and then returned home exhausted and dusty!!!
