Ellie's words

Tonight our neighbor was over with her new baby. I asked Ellie to come say hi. She said I'm gonna go get him a piece of cake. I told her no and she said how about an ice cream cone. I told her babies don't need special treats and she walked off with her head down and said but he is SO HUNGRY!

About thirty minutes later we were still visiting and she came around the corner and said checkout my and underpants. I look down and she has on a pair of Steven's underwear and has it pulled all the way up to her neck!

There is never a dull moment at our house these days!

Fall Favorite

We are so ready for fall around this house! We spent last weekend getting MY FAVORITE fall decoration ready! Now we just need the temps to cool down so all the pumpkins and gourds will last awhile! I might have wasted my money if it doesn't cool off but they just make the door decor complete!

I have lots of questions about my door in the past. The grapevine, greenery and lights stay up year round. The rest is changed seasonally. My fall decorations for the door are my favorite! Christmas and Valentine's are tied for second place! I'll have to remember to post all the season changes this coming year!

We Remember

On 9-11 I was a junior in college living in an apartment with three of my girlfriends.  My friend Casey sent me an email today.

"11 years ago we lined up to get gas...for what reason...we had no idea but everyone else was.  then we went to give blood, but yours was tainted! haha.  i remember thinking we were so old and mature for whatever reason, but looking back, we had NO IDEA!!!"

I think we lined up to get gas because all the gas stations were closing down. My blood was 'tainted' because my iron was low and I wasn't allowed to donate that day.  How true is her statement that at 20 years old we truly had NO IDEA how this would change America.

While in line to donate blood we discussed the events with a younger sorority sister.  We didn't know her too well but we learned that her mom was a flight attendant to American it took them awhile to learn but they eventually heard that she was safe with her flight crew in London.

Isn't it crazy that when events like this happen you ALWAYS remember exactly what you were doing at that moment?!?  I can say the same for the Oklahoma City bombing that happened when I was in 8th grade.

Bedtime Conversations

Ellie had been laying down singing for about 20 minutes before this conversation occurred! 

Ellie: Mommy I need Mommy
Me: Yes Ellie
Ellie: I hurt
Me: What hurts...your teeth, your ears, etc
Ellie: How about some bitamins (vitamins)?
Me: No you don't need any vitamins.  You can have some in the morning.
Ellie: But I hurt.
Me: Ok Ellie I'm sorry you hurt but vitamins are for in the morning.
Ellie: Then how about some teeth medicines?

The crazy girl would do ANYTHING to stay awake last night.  Now her teeth have been bothering her she is getting her two year molars BUT she already had 'teeth medicine' last night.
