and I'm only getting around to posting about it now. Bleh.
There used to be a really cool pumpkin patch here in Abilene, that was by a creek, but they've stopped operations and now the only pumpkin patch is at the Disability Resources place so that's where we brought Jaxon a couple of weeks ago.
He hadn't been feeling too well as he had just had 4 ( read : FOUR ! ) shots the day before, during his well child visit with the pediatrician, so he was cranky part of the time and wouldn't sit still for long for pictures, but we still managed to get some good ones. It was fun to go on the hayride, and David bought some pumpkins for the house. They were pricier than at, let's say, Walmart, but it was all for a good cause..
The Mid Autumn Festival was last week, and my brother was so sweet to call me up and ask me if I could find any mooncakes in Abilene. Previously I was able to get some at the Filipino Store, but they had changed management since, and I didn't see any there this year.
ANYWAY, these came in the mail a couple of days ago .. AWWWW Thank you Carter!
David tried some and even had seconds! He likened them to fig newtons "with a milder taste".
Today, the FIL, hubs and myself got our flu shots at Walgreens. The local Health Dept. had run out of vaccines, and so we had to find an alternative. There was a bit of a wait, but the pharmacist was very sweet and informative, and as he prepared to give me a shot, I cringed a little and prepared myself for the prick and subsequent sting. There was NONE! Each one of us felt nothing at all.
I had to peek under my bandaid to see the drop of blood there to be convinced that I had actually received a shot.
p/s: I had him give me the shot on my "non baby bearing arm". LOL
Fall is finally here, and the temperatures are no longer in the 100's and high 90's. The sky was overcast, and it was pretty cool this morning. So, I decided to hang out with Jaxon in the yard for a few minutes. The poor boy was still feeling out of sorts from his shots, and started fussing after about 10 minutes, so off we went, back indoors. Otherwise, I think he had a pretty good time..
