Is it really FALL already?

Who am I kidding? It will be over before we know it!

I am sitting here at 12:30 in the morning, sleep-less. I have had a horrible sinus infection for 3 days and I have slept toooooo much. I just can't sleep anymore. I did not even go to school today, instead, to the doctor's office. Then back home to ....sleep. In between naps, I got some cleaning done though!
A few things to update:

My mom has been really sick since the first weekend in July. The doctor's thought she had diverticulitis. They treated her for that and waited for her to heal before doing a colonoscopy. Finally about 4 weeks ago, they did the test, only to find out she has colitis instead. Colitis is inflammation of the colon. They say it is a sister to Chrone's disease. They gave her meds for that and told her she would be better in 3 days. Well, 3 days later they said a week and she would be better. They have been telling her that for 3 weeks now. She finally got so sick from no food that they put her in the hospital. This is a good thing though because she got her meds through an IV so she could hold them down, as well as getting fluids to help build her strength back up. She finally came home tonight and is doing much better, but still has a ways to go. I did not go see her because I am so sick and she doesn't need that, even though dad has it!?? Anyway, keep her in your prayers and hopefully the medicines will work this time!

On a lighter note from mom, dad and I being sick, Blair and I carved a pumpkin on Sunday! We did a really good job. We bought a carving kit with stencil's from Lowe's and carved a cute scene with a boy and a girl. I have not done this since I was a little kid with my dad. We also went out and bought a lot of cute fall decorations. I am a little sad to say though that black stuff is coming out of our pumpkin. Looks like mold. I need to look up and see if we were supposed to treat the pumpkin! hehe...This HOT weather is not helping things. The mums are not doing as well as they could be because it is supposed to be colder by now...

And our pumpkin after...can you see the little girl on the left..the little boy on the right?
Lastly, Blair and I have gotten semi-involved with a program at our church. We really need to start getting more involved, instead of just going on Sundays! Our church is presenting a Judgement House Drama that is done throughout the state. I actually went to one when I was younger with the youth group. It is a great walk through program. Blair is being a security guard and I am helping with registration and make-up, hopefully. I have been so sick that I did not go out either night this week to see how the make-up would be done, so I will probably just be an extra hand. The show starts next Friday and Saturday, then the next weekend as well. There has been so much put into this production. I pray it is a real success.
Anyway, here are a few pics from the past month. I cannot believe how fast time is flying. We will be celebrating our first year anniversary soon.....CRAZY!!!
Hope everyone is doing well!

Me and Blair after the party

I LOVED my hair that night...
This is how I grade papers! hehe...
Oh yea...I almost forgot...Here is the cutest video of Carleigh saying her ABC', she is only 2, so it took some convincing. She will sing all day, but once she see's the camera, she closes up like a clam. It is kind of hilarious that we had to bribe her...Enjoy!

Also, just another cute one of the silly girl...
