We had lasagna tonight so Abby got to wear her spaghetti shirt.
Doesn't she look so happy!
Didn't eat a bite of lasagna though!
After dinner, we painted nails.
Then.....it was hair stylin' time!
First look - the ponytail.
But I did get these two sweet birthday pictures from Abby and Christopher.
Saturday night we went to a joint baby shower for our friends Brad and Amber. Their little girl Callie is 3 months younger than Abby. And baby girl Aubrie is due the end of November.
Abby, Callie and Emmi loved playing on the cornhole boards.
Thursday night we had chicken nuggets and mac and cheese. I cracked up because I am totally eating dinosaur nuggets and Pheneus and Ferb mac and cheese. We are gourmet in my house!
Friday night was watercolor night.
Day 16: 5 Blogs You Visit Daily
I have quite a few blogs that I visit daily, but I will try to narrow it down.
Young House Love - This has been a recent obsession. And I do mean obsession. This a DIY couple that shows in detail how they are transforming their house. I am nowhere near their level of creativity, but I love watching how they transform their house. Cheap!
Kelly's Korner - I have to believe that this will be a favorite of most people. Kelly is awesome and a true inspiration to Christian mommas. I love hearing her stories of Harper (who is about 2 weeks younger than Abby) and her new baby Hollis.
In this Wonderful Life - I started reading this blog when her son was diagnosed with a heart condition in the womb. She recently had two beautiful twins. Her blog is super sweet!
For my number 5 (well technically 6, 7, 8 and 9), I am totally promoting my friends' blogs.
Fine Wine and Diapers - Former co-workers wife. She is preggars with number 2 and I am personally dying to know Baby Girl's name!
Warf Party of 4 - Good friends that just went through the birth of a son at 26 weeks. Houston is doing awesome and I love this little family of 4.
Julie's Blog - My bestie that doesn't update as often as I wish she did ;) but she has an amazing daughter and an amazing story.
Lindsay's Photography - Lindsay does all of our photographs now and I love them! Not only are her pictures amazing, she is terrific to work with. Doesn't hurt that she is a good friend of mine and Abs loves her!
It was very entertaining to keep two rowdy kids.
Case in Point:
Casey: "I have crayons at my own house, what else ya got?"
I asked them to smile for the camera. Only one of them paid attention to me of course.
And they really enjoyed laying in the dog bed!
Every day has a theme or activity. For example, tomorrow the kiddos are learning about the letter "F" and are bringing a flashlight.
Wednesdays are dress up days and Fridays are show and tell. I am so excited!
Oh and they have a potty chart complete with a treasure chest....score!! They send them home too so we can do the same thing here. Let's potty train before Christmas!
Day 13: Share your favorite Bible Verse
It is hard to name just one!
For I know the plans that I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11 (hung in Abby's room)
Everyone who calls on the name of the LORD will be saved. Romans 10:13
Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful. Colossians 4:2
I have many, many more, but glancing through my Bible those are some that I have highlighted.
And I have to say that our preacher does an amazing job of picking "ordinary" scripture and digging into its true meaning. It has made me see and read the Bible in a whole new light.
