Is Anyone Out There...?

Dear Family, Friends, and Lurking Bloggers,

Wow! What a busy Fall we are having at our household! I am like many of you that go from early morning til night doing everything from mediation between argueing brothers to mediation between a neonatologist and his nurses. (I'll take the first, by the way!) Our days are filled with laundry, school, discipline, loving, playing, cleaning, etc.... and at the end of the day, I'm EXHAUSTED! I know this is sounding so familiar to many of you out there. I guess I say all that to say that I'm having a hard time finding time to sit and blog. Once I have gotten out of the habit, I realize how very far behind I am on everyone's life. I feel very sad when I think about how before this blogging thing....I WAS REALLY BEHIND! At night when all the house is quite and I might gather enough strength to click blogspot on my GOOGLE page...I'm too tired. And there goes another day not "communicating". This is a very long way to to say Sorry for not sharing my life with you and enjoying yours with you. I will try to stay up a little later tonight to catch you up on us....

We had the opportunity to join Larry on a business trip to Pigeon Forge. While he worked we went into Maryville to see my wondeful Grandmother "GG". We had such a fantastic visit! The boys love GG so very much and love playing with all her toys. They also love her food! I think she could serve crackers and mayo and they would think it was the best! I'm striving to reach that status!!! We also got to visit with Aunt Carol and Queen Essie!!! They are two of my favorite people in the world!!! Talk about having some good laughs!! I so wish we lived closer and had time to visit more often!

The next day we were still in Pigeon Forge in our hotel room, and Carson fell and chipped several teeth and knocked his two front teeth loose! It was a very hard and long day. We went to my parents in GA that evening, hoping to see the dentist, but to no avail. We did have a short evening with Papa, Grandmomma, Aunt Christa, Aunt Susan, Uncle Jeff and Colton! What a joy to be together as a family!! Colton is getting so big and is the cutest thing since my boys! Ha! Sometimes when I glance at him, I see Susan and then other times he is his daddy made over! He is a whopper thou! We Scarbrough's can grow 'em big! ha!

I have been extremely busy with work at the hospital. Our census has been at a level high for a few months now and we are all having to work more than we want. I am very blessed in loving my job, but I love staying home with my boys much more. The benefit of me working is that get one on one time with daddy...they all love it! I couldn't ask for a better "sitter"! Speaking of Larry, he is once again doing a huge cabinet job. We are so blessed that his is doing his first new home construction job. He is doing a fantastic job and loving every minute of it. His work is phenomenal! He does this in the evenings and the weekends so it makes for one tired man. I pray the Lord will keep him healthy. He would so love to be able to do this on a full time basis.

Steven's school is going well and Mommy is once again making adjustments. I think I have it .organized and something changes . Maybe I'll stop being so type A personality. NOT! Carson is starting to learn things in leaps and bounds also and is going to make for an exciting year next year for K5. Peyton is doing better also, now that he "understands" the routine.

I have so many pictures that I want to share with you all, but I think I'll wait until another night. I'm doing good to get this much written. I hope that I still have a few friends who miss me....thanks Kimber for the note!! I can't wait to get caught up with everyone!
