Friday Funnies

When I decided to start blogging again, I wanted to include little snippets of stuff my little hooligans say. It may not but funny to you but this stuff is HILARIOUS to me & Hubs (aka Head Hooligan). Here's a prime example from dinner last night:

Background info - we've been trying to teach the girls about where we live and the Earth. We were sitting in a local sushi restaurant with the news on the TV in plain view and the anchor was talking about something going on in the world...

Hooligan 1 (H1/Big): We don't live in Africa. We just live in Princessland.

I literally had to hide my face behind my napkin I was laughing so hard. H1 asked me what was wrong and Head Hooligan (HH) had to tell her that something was making Mommy's eyes hurt.

Sorry for the long, drawn out explanation. Friday Funnies will get shorter as I get better at blogging. Happy Friday!

Just like that...

I look up and have a 2 year old, not to mention a 3 year old as well. Where has the time gone? And what on earth have I been doing for the past 3 years (since my last blog post)? Well, this is what I've been doing...

These two are incredible. I've never experienced so many emotions since having them. From the "trying to get pregnant" process to the littlest turning 2 yesterday, life has been a roller coaster. I'm going to start blogging again if for nothing else to keep up with these two little hooligans and all of their "isms". I hope you enjoy it as much as I will.

Luke 2:10

"Behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy..." -Luke 2:10.

I noticed this verse on my calendar this morning, and it really took me aback. No truer statement has ever been spoken. God has been so unbelievable to us the past few years, and even though my faith has wavered multiple times His faith in me has not. On Tuesday, December 20, Ann Trotter is going to make her debut into this world, and I am so thankful. I have never been more excited and scared and anxious and completely emotional as I am right now. Today is my last day of work, and I am glad to have a couple of days to wrap things up. I cannot wait to meet this little girl but I'm thankful to have a couple of days to myself. I'm excited about all of my family and friends meeting her and showing her all of the love that they have showed me over the years. I'm so thankful for all of them. Welcome to the world, Ann Trotter. We all love you more than you will ever know.

We have 7 weeks left, people! I'm surprised by how quickly it's flown by. Ann Trotter is moving and grooving like crazy and is the size of a pineapple.

A pineapple? How in the world can I have something the size of a pineapple inside of me? It's amazing what my body has done over the past few months.

In other news, the nursery is almost done so ATA will have a place to sleep. I'll post pics when it's complete. I don't like showing things that are in progress; that's just my weirdness coming out.

I hope to get to meet Ann Trotter's newest friend Alex in the next few weeks! I can't wait for them to grow up together. They are going to be such cute little girls.

That's all for now. Until next time...

It's all in a name...

As most of you know I've been stressing and contemplating and fretting over The Bit's name for weeks/months now. I don't want to give her something trendy, I want to use a family name, I don't want her to hate me or her name when she's older, I don't want her to get made fun of, etc., etc., etc. Cliff has been asking me non-stop what we are going to call her and for the longest time I just told him that I didn't know. Well, all that changed yesterday. Thanks to my dear friend Jessica (who gave me a deadline; she knows I work much better under deadlines) I decided yesterday that my baby girl will be called Ann Trotter Agnew. Yep, I'm going old school Southern with a double family name, and I love it! I even cried when I called Jess to let her know (it may also have had something to do with the fact that we were watching The Office rerun where Jim & Pam get married. Who knows?). I think I freaked Jess out a little... Cliff kept saying her name over and over again to my tummy and Ann Trotter started kicking up a storm! So I guess she approves... Can't wait to meet her!!

Pink or Blue?

It's anybody's guess!

Yes, you guessed correctly - we are expecting our first little bundle of joy in December! I'm at the halfway point so we are beyond excited. We tried to find out the sex of The Bit (as we are lovingly calling the baby) at our last doctor's appointment, but he/she wouldn't cooperate. He/she is definitely her father's child... and I say that with love in my heart! We go back next week to try again. Hopefully we'll have a different result this time.

Obviously, things have been really busy around our house lately, so my apologies in the severe lack of posting. Cliff graduated from Mississippi College Law School and has been studying for the Bar since May. The last day of testing is today!! Whoo HOO!!

After graduation, we took a week off for our first "Katy & Cliff" trip since before law school. We went down to the beach and did NOTHING until Friday. Then we helped our friends Joe & Laura celebrate their wedding in Watercolor. It was fantastic!

That's it for me, my blogging friends. I promise to be a little more diligent about posting...

Decorator I am not...

But I LOVE this concept!

Temporary wallpaper! Excuse me? I normally would shudder at the thought of putting up wallpaper anywhere in my house. After trying to peel wallpaper off of my bathroom walls only to find 3 MORE layers of wallpaper (probably dating back to the origination of my house in 1958), I vowed NEVER to put anymore wallpaper in any room in any house that I ever owned. Well, you know what they say - never say never. What do you think?
