Epi-pin Please?

Not many cute pictures to share over this past month seeing as we've been too busy with ugly red bumps, swollen ankles (and not from this pregnant lady)...allergic reactions all around; however I did jam my finger saving this cute face from smashing into the floor while head diving off of the couch:

I was also able to squeeze in a "date" night with my TJ. So I did manage one more cute picture this month:

First it started with Thomas getting attacked by yellow jackets while mowing the lawn. He was stung twice on his ankle, once on his arm, and once on the inside of this thigh...little did we know, he must be allergic to them:

The next week we noticed TJ had a rash on his legs and elbows (weird, it was just on his elbows, huh?). He had gotten into some poison ivy, we assume; and once again, we didn't know he was allergic:

Finally (surely this is enough for one month), Tristan came down with strep throat and a double ear infection. After an early Saturday morning visit to the Dr's office, and 2 days on antibiotics, he broke out all over his head, chest, and returning to the Dr. on Tuesday we learn...he's allergic to the antibiotics! YAY...and as TJ would say, "you're being sarcastic, right Mom?!" Sorry, no picture of this unpleasant and unsightly rash, and after those 2 previous pictures, you could use something cute:

Hopefully August will be filled with awesome pictures from my sister's wedding such as this one of TJ trying on his suit:

Or, adorable "First Friday of School" pictures since my first day of school pictures never turn out well, such as this one from last year:

Ready for August...I'll bring the Epi-pin, you bring the Benedryl! See you then!

Shake Your Groove Thang...Yea, Yea

Saturday, I headed to Atlanta to co-host a bridal shower for my one and only sister. Blair lives in California (for now...hopefully we can get them down south soon), and is getting married next month in Nashville. So, we were able to get some girls together and squeeze in a quick little shower; and it was so fun! When I got home that afternoon, I realized I needed to get the boys prepared for what was to come. We got the radio out, turned the volume up, and got our groove on...

Get ready Nashville, 'cause the Hills are ready to Drop it like it's HOT!

And the criminal strikes again

I know, he appears cute, sweet, and innocent...even cuddly at times, but don't be fooled by this lifetime criminal....first he murdered my carpet, now he's been caught again...this time stealing! And, he's good at it; he's like one of those Ocean's 11 guys: a conniving, smart, well-thought out planning kind of thief. He starts his mission like a shark, circling his prey...around and around, stalking them and watching their every move, until he comes up with his perfect plan of attack. His prey, always being his big brother, who has unknowingly fallen into his trap. TJ sits on the floor, watching cartoons, while eating his breakfast on a stool. The hardened criminal scopes out his target:Upon noticing his prey is completely engulfed in cartoons, he squats down directly in front of him with stealthy motion. Once in position, he slowly pulls the stool away from TJ. Finally, TJ partially comes back to reality, and pulls the stool back, at this point Tristan realizes his plan has worked out perfectly. He grabs for the plate, and swipes TJ's last 2 pieces of waffle...SUCCESS!

WARNING: there is a blue eyed, blonde haired, chunky baby on the loose...he's been caught twice, and is suspected armed, with 12 teeth, and dangerous...don't let him get too close!
