And just like that SUMMER IS OVER...

Casa de Drama- A weekly summer recap in pictures 

In a surprising twist of fate, I find myself looking forward to summer break this year. Weird, I know! But nonetheless, here I am! To commemorate this (unexpected) feeling, I am kicking off this summer long series, where I will give you a glimpse into our daily lives through pictures and brief "recaps" of some of the funny things happening in this crazy zone we call home! 
Welcome to my Casa de Drama...

Wow! The last couple weeks of this summer REALLY dragged out for me this year. (And every year. Let's keep it real!) The kids are FINALLY back in school. Only a 1/2 day today, but at least it was a couple hours of sane time! Tomorrow it is back to regular business in this house and I am SO ready. And even though summer seemed long, we managed to squeeze every last drop of fun out of it! 

Here are the last week (and a half) of highlights. Enjoy!

Last week ended off with the hubs celebrating his birthday! We had a lot of fun leaving the kids behind and heading off to the casino! Too bad my hubs is getting to be quite the old fart...
Dinner: 4p Casino: 6 Home by 9. My hubs is living up his bday in style...old man style! 38 is the new 90.

Wait! What?
And he even managed to win back all the money I lost! What would I do without this man?!

It's those glasses AGAIN! Silly girl!
Brennan kept us entertained (as always!) with these funny conversations:
As a big storm is rolling in-
Brennan:*frightened* Is that thunder, momma? I don't LIKE storms!
Me: Yes. But it's ok. We are inside and safe!
Brennan: *Looking out the window* Wow! That sure is a lot of rain, momma!
Me: Yes, it's really coming down!
Brennan: Is God bowling AND crying, momma? Why would he be doing both?! ....OH, I KNOW! He is probably crying because he's not winning!....OR.....maybe he is crying because I have been so naughty....

(I PROBABLY should have said something about that last part. But NOBODY said I was perfect! I wonder if that will make her pick up her markers like I have been asking her to do for the last half an hour?)

She sure was ROCKIN' the glasses this week!
And Brennan decided that she wanted a "tooth fairy" for a pet!
Kk: Momma! I am going to lose my tooth today! It is soooo loose!
Me: Awesome!
Brennan: Does that mean the tooth fairy will come tonight??!
Me: Well.....MAYBE... (I have to say this because our tooth fairy is "slightly" forgetful....errr....I mean BUSY)
Brennan: Ooooooh.....I can't wait! Cuz I am gonna CATCH that tooth fairy and keep her! I always wanted a tooth fairy...

I guess it's a GOOD thing that our tooth fairy is so terrible at her one and only job. It just might save her life.

 And after THIS happened- 
AAAAAAH! I need a mom-cation! Seriously! I just cleaned poop out of the bathroom sink. POOOOOOP in my SINK! How does that even HAPPEN?!
P.S. It was Brennan. She has a pooping issue.
I decided if you can't beat them, join 'em! And built this living room blanket fort to TRY and get a few precious minutes to myself for writing....

It didn't work. 

 After WEEKS of feeling left out...

Brennan: Hey Kk! Wanna play the game "left out" where I feel left out?
Kk: *laughing, looks at me and says* I don't know WHAT she is TALKING about!

Ah. The joys of being the youngest sister.

Brennan FINALLY got to go away for the day to Grandma's ALL by herself!

 She was SO excited! (And I was too, because let's face it...she's a tornado and I needed a break!)

The big girls got cute new hair cuts for school over the weekend. Yay! School! 

It's about TIME school was coming up...I am pretty sure the hubs was starting to get a little sick of summer too...

Hubs: Ooooh! Honey I REALLY wanna go to the buffet today! But it's so expensive...... and the kids.....We gotta make that happen!
Me: Ya gonna sell a kidney?!
Hubs: ALMOST....knock off the end of that word and you GOT it! Hey ki-ids! Come here! Daddy's got something he needs to discuss with you.....


And JUST LIKE THAT....summer was over! We now OFFICIALLY have a 10th grader, a 6th grader, a 4th grader, and a soon-to-be preschooler!

Thanks for following our summer adventures! The Casa de Drama will still be popping up occassionally... like maybe when Brennan starts school in a few weeks...

  1. You lucky lady.. I still I have one full day of my monsters and then two half days to boot for the start of school! :-(

    Our tooth fairy is always drunk.. she forgets.. A lot.. or blames it on their messy rooms. . That time they cleaned their rooms though!!

    This was a hilarious finale! Thanks for inviting me to be a part of your summer. Your summer was so much fun! ;-)

  2. I love reading your blog and your fb posts!
    I am home schooling the Teen this year, so well....ummmm....do an extra happy dance for me, ok? LOL

  3. I love that you can use thunder as a way to get your daughter to clean up. Noting and stealing for later use.

  4. Ugghhh...poop in the sink. I can only think of one thing grosser than that. ��
