I am really liking the new Anew genetics cream from Avon. It really does work. I also really like outlet eye shadow pencils I think I will buy a couple of more tomorrow, while they are on outlet clearance prices. I need to redo my nails tomorrow too, but want to check walmart first to see if they have the OPI color I've been wanting, while I'm there getting Lela a new sleeping cap any way. I'm really hoping it's the color I am wanting, since the color I really like has been discontinued.
Poor little Belle has the sniffles and is really whiny with it. Poor babe. Hopefully I won't get it and it will pass quickly.
Nick and Megan come to town on Friday so would be good if little RJ would make a appearance for us!

Before the doctor appointment, my mom took me and the kids to Mc Donald's, we split the new Autumn Sweet shake and it was really really good! Liked that one a lot!
After that we went to Target, cause I was out of my favorite salsa, so restocked on salsa, which thankfully now they carry one third larger size for only a few cents more. Yippee. haha I also noticed a new flavor summer fruits, I believe it was strawberry, kiwi, and pineapple, look forward to trying it. I love sweet and spicy salsas. I also checked on getting the same color OPI nail polish I had my nails done in last week. But, they didn't have that color, I bought one that was one shade lighter though. It's good but I still am liking the other shade better. So came home to do a google and found out that it was discontinued. UHG! And now it's online for like 20 dollars on ebay. What eva! I will just have to keep looking for it with a different name maybe. *sigh* I really loved that color too! Any way, came home and redid my nails, at which time Belle and Lela insisted I do theirs too. However, when I finished Belle's fingers she also insisted I do her toes too! haha

So off to the park again today we went. Met, my mom, Eldon, Casey and Hunter there. Had lots and lots of food, I made burgers, deviled eggs, brought mac salad, potato salad, collard greens, and baked beans, and of course stuff to make s'mores. My mom brought salad fixin's, and a lemon pie. It was sooooooo cool outside though the grill was barely able to stay lit or hot. So unlike our Septembers. Especially after having 3 months of record breaking triple digits, for with in a week it going down into the 50's was crazy. But, it is what it is here in the land of never staying the same temperatures. We spent the WHOLE day at the park. This was my first time to actually spot us tables under the pavilion, I was afraid it may begin to rain, but it didn't. The pavilion was nice, had electric, lights, and three huge grills. It would be nice to rent it sometime for a large picnic, with the congregation. The girls had so much fun. Belle literally played till she dropped. It was so funny at the end of the day she came to me to drink some milk, and dropped her cup, she made creaky noises all the way down to pick it up and all the way up to stand back up. It was hilarious! haha Then she sleepily stumbled herself back to the playground. haha Didn't take her or Lela long to pass out in the car on the way home. I was glad this time was much better then last time we went. Last time some crazy guy drove his truck really fast around the play area, and inside the play area! I was scared he was on drugs or drunk, and was going to run over the girls and other children! Nothing like that happened this time. All the families that came, and there was lots, were nice, and were really well behaved. There was at least 4 parties while we were there, also in the pavilion, but the pavilion was so big we all had plenty of space, and tables for us all to be under there. Just surprised how many parties all in one day just in that one pavilion, as the park has many other areas and pavilions. So who knows how many in the park there was total. I figure though I don't know how many more nice weekends we will have, especially before little Rae-Jay comes, so I wanted to have at least one more day at the park for the girls before then. Not sure if we will be able to get out to the park again during the fall before the weather turns cold after he comes. May not be able to go again till spring.

Before I left though I put a roast in the oven. First time I have ever done roast in the oven, I've always done it in the slow cooker. I was really happy with how it came out. However, I went by many suggestions and didn't put the veggies in at the same time. I put them in when I got home and turned up the oven heat. Two hours later they still weren't done to my liking but, I went ahead and served it any way. I have always put the veggies in the slow cooker with the roast all at the same time, as I like my veggies really done! lol So next time I will do that in the oven too. The veggies Monday weren't even soft at all, very hard! lol Oh well. I am making another one next Monday but with Italian dry dressing mix instead of my usual dry onion soup mix. I want to see how that will work. As I found a recipe for it online. And we have a lot of roasts to use up soon. Dad's ordering another cow soon, and we still have the majority of roast from the last cow still in the freezer. Almost a year old now. Thankfully it's super fresh cow and packaged well as they all still look great. But, still want to get them used up before the next cow comes, plus if they aren't used up by then we won't even have room in the freezer for the next cow any way. As it takes a lot of room to fit half a cow in all our freezers.
After I came home I was sick as a dog. I got what ever Belle had. I was really looking forward to that roast, but I ate one bite and that was all I could manage. Went to bed, and about couldn't get out for a few days. It was some awful stuff! Glad that's over for me. Unfortunately it started for Lela last night though. UHG! Vomit every where, poor baby. Thankfully we had pedialyte left over from Belle's ordeal with it. So she is doing better today.
Then we went to Sally's today and bought some product for my hair. When it's longer I usually don't use any product, but when it's shorter, I like to give it some interest and flock the back and smooth and texture the front. So I bought some texturing wax, and some hair cement. They said the cement was more for mohawks, but my hair is so bad about staying in place that's the kind of stuff I have to use to just make it flock. Amazing how much cheaper the texturing wax was at Sally's compared to Walmart. Then I noticed that there was a Avon store right by the Sally's so went there. Bought some chap stick that was on sale, and meant to get some other stuff, but couldn't remember what I had been wanting, so got a catalog and will mark what I want before going in next time. I had to hurry as the natives were getting restless and started clearing off shelves for me! UHG! And it was time for another doctors appointment as well. So we picked every thing they cleared off the shelves, put it back, and then headed to the doctor.
Seen doctor Jensen next, no real progress as of yet. But, getting there. And the boy is measuring up at 38 weeks. WOW first one ever that is at the right measurements. However, I'm sure getting anxious to get my energy and body back! I'm just sad for little Belle, she's just so young still she's going to be upset by it all, wish I could of waited a few more months. But, things don't always happen as I plan. haha

Lela turned 5 yesterday, I can't believe how fast she is growing up. She's going to be grown before I know it! It's going by too fast!
We went to the Kansas state fair today and the kids had a ton of fun. They got to run a obstacle course to get some chocolate milk. Spin wheels to get little junky prizes-treasures to them. They went through a petting zoo that had all kinds of animals, camels, zebras, llamas, goats, all kinds of stuff. Then we headed over to the birthing center, and they seen chickens hatching, and a brand new baby calf that had JUST been born, still had afterbirth on him, and hadn't stood up yet. Took him several times to get stood up, and then there was lots of clapping and cheering for the little fella.
Other then that we didn't see as much food as we usually do-new foods that is, with samples and such. We also didn't see too many arts and crafts, I would of liked to of seen more home made stuff. But, oh well, Vince wasn't feeling well and I was tired so we stopped looking. Hopefully next year.
Next we headed over to the pig races, which were VERY crowded. But, Lela got to see them, and that was fun. Then my mom had bought some discount ride tickets, from the local grocery store. So the kids got to go on a few rides. Lela rode the cars, and carousel and Belle just rode the carousel but didn't care for it too much. Lela really wanted to go on the big swings, but she was two inches too short, then she wanted to go on the bungee jumper thing, and we said NO! lol haha Silly girl.
