Not Me! Monday


Welcome to Not Me! Monday! This blog carnival was created by MckMama. You can head over to her blog to read what she and everyone else have not been doing this week.

********************************

I did NOT spend almost all of last week debating on whether or not I was going to go with Jason on a business trip. I did NOT consider letting the boys miss a few days of school just so I wouldn't have to be home alone {you know, with no other adults} for a whole week. I also did NOT consider just letting Henry and Grant spend the week with my mom while Eli and I enjoyed a little vacation!


I did NOT take Grant to the dentist last week to have one of his {baby} teeth fixed. I did NOT spend way too much just a little bit of money getting his tooth fixed strictly for cosmetic reasons. I would NEVER be so worried about appearance and spend so much on a tooth that he is going to lose in a few years anyway.

{His tooth did NOT go from gross, gray, injured tooth to nice normal looking tooth after 1 1/2 hours and about $500!}

I did NOT take the boys to attempt pictures with one of our local town's fall decorations. I did NOT take at least 50 shots...and only end up with about 3 good ones{I will post the good ones later this week}! I REALLY did NOT realize how hard it is to get three little boys to look {and smile} at the camera at the same time!



Pin It!

Love their shirts. Cute shots. I hate when my hubby is away on business too.

I haven't even tried to get posed shots of all mine together...I can only imagine the headache! It's just much easier to get them one at a time. {sigh} I've been debating giving it a shot cause I really need new family pics and don't want to go have them made somewhere, but I've got to get up the nerve first!! I love those shirts, BTW.

Too cute! And I'm so scared of teeth injuries...I don't blame you one bit for getting it fixed!

Oh, I hear you about trying to get the perfect picture where everyone is looking!! I definitely relate with that, but I only have TWO kids! I've been thinking I need to get the kids' pictures taken for our Christmas card. I wanted an outside shot, but it looks like the "wet and windy" weather will be around for a bit!

It is so stinkin hard to get good pics of all of us. I drive myself crazy trying!

I hate it when Gary travels too, and have often thought of loading up with him sometimes.

Carrie said...

I can't even get a few good pics with the two of mine! Alex always tries to act goofy! They are adorable...I'm sure they are all just as cute!

Dentists can sure find ways to sap all the money we have, can't they! ugh! So did you...or are you going on the trip with your hubs? I wish I could go on all the trips Dan goes on too...he's been lots of places I'd like to see :)

Konnie said...

I need to take the boys to to do some pics too. Cute shirts!

Jenilee said...

congrats on winning sneaky momma's christmas design! :) so fun! and, I never take that many pictures either only to have a few turn out. :) not with 3 little girls! :)

Jenilee said...

oh, and we just had my oldest daughters tooth fixed as well. but it was an adult tooth that she fell and broke in half. so awful! I can understand why you fixed a baby tooth though. it is heartbreaking to see their little teeth broken or hurt!

He & Me + 3 said...

Oh Actress had one of those discolored teeth and we didn't even think to get it repaired. I sure would have liked too though. The boys shirts are so cute.

Foursons said...

Your life will now be spent trying to get 3 boys to look at the camera all at the same time with their eyes open and smiles on their faces. You will end up with 1/100 shots being semi decent and finally conclude that even though one of the boys has their eyes 1/2 open that it totally counts as a perfect picture and print it out for Christmas cards.

Oh wait- that's my life. Sorry.

I love their shirts too!!!
sooo cute!

Kelli said...

I would have considered the little vacation too! I love the shirts that you made and I hope you get your picture.

Alicia said...

Kelli, you're are so funny about the tooth! But, that would probably bug me too...lol.

Love their shirts at the pumpkin patch!!

Eyeglasses & Endzones said...

We have had a grey tooth as well. QB fell off a metal slide (go figure)~
Love the shirts...I want one of those for myself!!! ;)

Jen said...

My son fell and hit his two front teeth so hard that they died. Both are gray now and I was always worried people will think they went that way because I didn't brush them! Not the case. Now I have gotten used to it and I don't notice. But still, I hope they fall out soon!! Great NOT Me!'s

Stephanie said...

It's insane how difficult it is to get multiple children to look at the camera....Can't wait to see your shots!
