10 on Wednesday

I have been taking a little blog break.  Since it is the end of the month, I figured I would do a little 10 on Tuesday..on Wednesday.

  1. My cousin Eric got married this last weekend.  He and his (now) wife, Laura Leigh, are honeymooning in Jamaica as we speak...lucky people!
  2. Kevin and I have been married 5 years, as of Friday.  He got me a 12(ish) Carat blue topaz ring that is surrounded by diamonds.  It is beautiful!  I got him a painting of him and Holy (his grandfather) fishing.  He was surprised, but pleased (I think) ( I will try to get a good pic of it)
  3. I am also getting a new wedding band.  We picked it out on Friday and I am just waiting for it to be done.  The diamonds used in it are the ones out of my Mom's ring that my Dad gave her for their 10th anniversary.  Pretty special.
  4. We have hit a sleeping stumbling block in the last week.  Rory is really trying to throw us off...Mommy is winning, hopefully!
  5. It has been rainy and yucky for the past 4-5 days.  Where is all that beautiful spring weather?
  6. I have been compiling my list of honey-dos for the out Kev!
  7. I saw a little girl with the cutest pair of shoes on the other day.  I have been trying to find them on the internet and can't.  I wanted to ask her Mother where she got them, and the brand, but she was talking on the phone at the time.  GRRR!
  8. We really need to do a cleaning out of the toys for Rory.  She has WAAAY too many!
  9. R's latest obsession...Tinkerbell...great!
  10. I can't think of 10.
I will try to be better about blogging in April!

Checking in and more Conversations with Rory.

Not a whole lot to report.  We enjoyed the lovely weather this weekend and Rory and I played outside a good bit.  Sunday, Rory and I went to the ballpark to watch Davis's practice.  Rory ran around the ball park and played in the dirt...she had a great time!

Davis wanted to pull Rory in the wagon back home, and of course Brock had to ride as well. 
See those sunglasses Rory is wearing?  The dollar isle at Target had a whole bunch of kid's sunglasses.  Rory picked these out and LOVES them.  The Easter Bunny might have picked up another pair as well ;).

This was a conversation that we had last night after R's bath, while trying to get her clothes on.

R: Where is Daddy?
L: He is in the Living Room, waiting for you.
R: Daddy is in the Wiving Woom, putting away the gwo-cer-wa-wer-wees. (groceries, for those that couldn't understand 'Southern Toddler lingo)
L: He is?  Well, I think that the groceries go in the kitchen
R: Daddy has ta put them fridge-da-mater.

The other weekend, while we were in Decatur, Rory comes walking out of Mom and Tim's office with pens in her hand...
R: Mommy, we don't write on Gee's wall...noooo, that is not very nice
L: Rory did you write on Gee's wall (I am about to have a heart attack at this point)
R: Nooo...that is naughty, pens are for de paper
(PS.  I checked, didn't see any, but whew, that gave me a scare)

At Davis's ball practice on Sunday...after hearing the coach tell one of the players to 'Run through the bag' at first base after getting a hit Rory yelled the next 3 players, loudly and repeatedly, no matter what they were doing to "Run fru da hag."

5 on Friday

A good ole Five on Friday...

  1. We don't have any out of town plans for this weekend!  YAY!!!! I am looking forward to spending time with my little Fam-of-3.
  2. I have been smocking again lately.  I am almost done with a bubble suit for Rory.  I will take pics when I am done of it on  her.
  3. I have an order for 40 monogrammed napkins...this is going to take a while.
  4. We are in the throes of 'Operation no-Pacie.'  I HATE taking it from her, I really wanted to let her drop it on her own, but alas...not happening.  At almost 2.5, it is time.  Plus, I am tired of telling her to take it out to talk.
  5. Kevin and I got engaged 6 years ago today.  Wow...we will be married 5 years at the end of this month.  Hard to believe!

Conversations with Rory

A few snippets from the last week or two.

Getting in car
R: I get in the car and we go shopping
L: Well, OK, where do you want to go shopping?
R: Want to go to Target and get Daddy some Hunna-pants
L: Well alright then.
R: Mommy, did you make a mess in your room?
L: No, I didn't make a mess in my room.  Rory, did you make a mess in your room?
R: No...that's not nice to make a big mess with your books in the floor.
L: You are correct, but if you didn't make a mess in your room with the books, who did?
R: Nellie
L: Are you sure you didn't do it?
R: Rory made the mess, Nellie likes to read the books.
L: Rory, it is time to get your bath, lets go get your clothes off.
R: OK...Mommy you get this diapa off-a-me..(struggling with the diaper, trying to pull them down like underwear)
L: Here let me help you...
R: Fanks (thanks) Mommy...I gotta show Daddy Rory's nudie boodie. (runs naked into the living room)
R: Hey Cap'n Mommy
L: Hey Cap'n Rory
R: Ahoy my heart-please
L: Ahoy me hardies to you too Rory
R: Mommy...I am a pie-wrap (pirate) from Nebba-Nebba hand (Never Never Land)

I have been a terrible blogger...I know.  It has been a wild month!  First we went to Gatlinburg for 4 days, we had a BLAST and then when we got home, Kevin got sick.  It lasted about a week and about the time that he got over it, I got sick and then I got a kickin' case of hives...yuck!  Somewhere in there, we took care of Rory and Sarah and Victoria turned 16.  Whew!  You are all caught up!

Now, onto the pics...
I got some plain wood birdhouses and gave them base coats and then turned Rory loose with the paints to decorate until her hearts content.  She had a great time and it was a great activity to do in this lovely weather!

 Our first activity in Gatlinburg was the Ripley's Aquarium.  Rory was not a fan, at first, but she warmed up to it.

 It was flippin' cold!!!!
 Rory, Tiana, Sully, Buzz, Woody, Bullseye, Nemo and Louis sat in the window seat in the mornings and "looked for the bears."  This little corner area was great for Rory to play in!  We stayed at the Westgate Resort and Spa and had a wonderful time!  It was great!  They even had an indoor water park that we spent about 3 hours at one day. 

 At The Peddlar...celebrating Kevin's Birthday.  This is a Gatlinburg tradition for Kev and I. 

 We got her these boots and hat...she is obsessed with them.  I don't think that she took them off for a week after we got home!

 All real cowgirls use cell phones...
