about us...

I'm The Mommy, a SAHM to Maggie & Ellie. I'm married to Big Daddy, an engineer, grad student and our hard-working provider.
I blog instead of scrapbooking in hopes of preserving a part of our life for the future.
We enjoy beach trips, going to Church and spending time together...all as a family...because that's what we are.

A List...or something

I don't know where to begin, but there's lots of things that I don't want to forget and since this is the scrapbook of our lives I decided to just make a random list.

  • Last week, I had what I like to call a "Great Week in Parenting". I'm not sure what was happening, but it was good and I liked it!
  • On Thursday I dropped the large, expensive bottle of perfume that Big Daddy gave me for Christmas. I wasn't crazy about the smell, but loved that he picked it out and I wore a little every single day. The bottle broke into lots of pieces and perfume went all over the bathroom. I had to clean the tile several times so that it wouldn't be slick and I swear the smell is still in the grout. The smell is also in the towel that I used to clean up the perfume and it's been washed several times.
  • Maggie is reading more and more words as she goes about her daily activities. I picked out three Pre-K/Kindergarten reading books for her Valentine's gift and I think she's going to enjoy reading them.
  • Ellie is trying to say lots of things now. She understands everything, but is still sort of quiet. She communicates pretty well without talking. She says truck all the time and unfortunately says it with an "f" at the beginning.
  • Maggie and Ellie are really into Play-Doh now. It provides entertainment at the table when Big Daddy's not at home and I'm cleaning up the kitchen after dinner.
  • Plans to homeschool Maggie in the fall are in full swing. (Eeeek!!) I should be getting one of the books that I ordered (for me) today or tomorrow and I am pretty sure I've found a curriculum that I want to use.
  • Maggie and Ellie love the new minivan! We drove it on Saturday and Sunday, and they were all giggles. I was pleasantly surprised that it doesn't feel that much larger than my SUV when I'm driving, but it looks like a bus in the garage! I lovingly refer to it as "The Tank".
  • After I picked Maggie up at school yesterday I told her about Baby Chase. She said, "OH NO" and then started to cry. Of course, then I started to cry too. She wanted to know if something happened to his "invisible cord" and said in her sweet little voice, "You know I could've died when I was born". She prayed for her friend Sara and her parents last night and is very curious about what happened to Chase.
  • On Saturday, Big Daddy and I are taking Maggie to the circus!! I think I was about Maggie's age the last time that I went. Maggie and I are very excited and I think Big Daddy will be after he takes his test tomorrow. We are leaving Ellie with Nana & Pawpaw and will probably take her next year.
  • On Sunday morning we are having a special program at all three morning worship services. The morning theme will be about families. There's also a "Spice Up Your Marriage Date Night" on Sunday evening and Big Daddy and I are going to it too. They are serving dinner for the kids and snacks for the adults, so it really will be like a little date night. Maggie's excited about going to a different class at church and getting to eat dinner there. We really love our Church.
  • Maggie spent an hour yesterday fixing Valentine cards for friends and teachers at preschool and all of the teachers that she and Ellie have on Sunday mornings and Wednesday nights. She decided to fill bags with candy, give them Princess cards and "Happy Valentine's Day" pencils. We are also fixing red velvet cake balls this weekend.
And I think that catches us up to today!!
Happy Tuesday!

Ellie is a lot like Andrew was at that age. He knew everything we were talking about but didn't say a whole lot.

Andrew and I wrote his Valentine cards yesterday and they have pencils attached too!
