Funny Girl

Stella says the funniest things to me all day long, she may drive me crazy at times but she always makes me smile. This is what was said today:

Stella: "Dang it!"
Me: "Stella, we don't say dang it"
Stella: "Mommy, daddy giggles when we say dang it, we need to say it more so that he can giggle"

Oh, daddy is in so much trouble when he gets some today.

I am trying to work on getting rid of the pacifier but don't want to totally get rid of it until we are back from Mexico in two weeks. I have started hiding them through out the day so that he can only have them at bed time. Well, today he showed me, he found one of Stella's dolls pacifiers and was using it. He did not care that it was not a normal pacifier just that he had one in his mouth.

I had to take Rhett back to the Dr. today because I noticed that mucus was coming out of his right ear! GROSS! I could not get in with our normal Dr. so we saw a nurse practitioner at another clinic. I am very glad that I got him in because the little guy has an ear infection on top of everything else! We are now on some antibiotics and ear drops. Really hope this makes him feel better soon.

Razorback Basketball

This evening Jason and I took Stella to the Razorback Basketball game. Rhett is still very sick so he hung out with Gigi and Papi. Stella was more excited about seeing Mallory at the game and that the gave her and her friends a ride back to their dorms. Stella thought she was big stuff having all those girls hangout with her.

Sick Boy

I have a very sick little man on my hands. He has had a very snotty nose and horrible cough for days but today he started to run a temp. I knew it was time to take him to see Dr. Cadle. I thought she was going to just tell me that it was a cold and nothing that could be done but it turns out the little guy has a pretty bad case of RSV. RSV is a very bad respitory infection that is a virus. There is not a lot they can do but did give us some cough syrup to make him at least be able to sleep. I could use the sleep because we have not been able to sleep in four days. I really hope that he starts to feel better soon.

Colby's 3 Birthday!

We got to attend a cook out for Colby's 3 birthday. The kids had so much fun playing in Colby's play room. Stella loving on Colby, I have a feeling that she might wear the pants in this relationship but he could give her a good run for her money.

I bought new shampoo today. When I was unloading it my wonderful husband looks at me and says, "That is not going in our shower until you get rid of some of the other bottles." I just started laughing and told him that he needs to be more like my father. You see my daddy loves to have at least 10 bottles in the shower at all times because he runs basketball plays using the bottles of product that my mom keeps in the shower. Yes, my father is a sports nut and this means that he was in full support of our love of product. I think that my husband needs to get some love for sports so that he can support my love of products.

Cute kids enjoying some bath time this evening.

Day 18

This is just the normal conversations that I have with Stella on a daily bases.
The funniest thing about her is she knows when you are asking her questions just to see if she knows the answers, she will then start asking them back to you to see if you know the answers. What a little rascal!

Day 17

Today was so much fun! I got to go with my future sister in law and help find her dress for the big day! I am so excited for Kyle and Brandi and their big day. I love her dress and can not wait for others to get to see it, you just have to wait a few months!

Day 16

We had church this morning and then my mom and I got to hang out and shop for a while this afternoon. It was really nice to be able to hang out with just her for a little while. This evening we went to a spaghetti dinner that our friends were doing for a fund raiser for their church. It was fun to see some of them and chat for a few moments. Tonight when we got home I was trying a dress on Stella that we had gotten her while shopping for our trip to the beach in a couple of weeks. You might be able to tell she liked the fact that she could twirl in it!

Day 15

Today has been a pretty lazy day, we have just hung out around the house and done nothing. We did run over to Gigi and Papi's for a bit but other than that it has been relaxing and boring.

I have been thinking a lot lately about words and the power that our words have on others. I really hope that Stella and Rhett learn that the words they speak have power, they need to think before they speak, use their words very carefully. Everyone that knows our family, or more so knows my husbands knows that my children have a really good chance of being LOUD! I hope that we can teach them that it is ok to be loud but make sure that whatever you are going to be loud about is well thought and not what you really mean to say. Words like love, hate, stupid, ugly can be used in so many ways but lets make sure that we use them for good and not bad. I just hope that our children will always remember that there is so much power in the words that they use.

Day 14

I was thinking that this little guy might look pretty cute as Pebble's for Halloween, Jason said that Rhett needs a hair cut.

Day 13

I have a monkey on my hands, yes, he is climbing the couch through the window into the kitchen sink. What a mess he is each day but I love him.

Day 12

Well ladies I just have to say that I am raising a future husband that women dream of, if only he will keep this up for the next 50 years. The boy loves to clean, if you get out any cleaning product he must have it. I have to wait to clean the house until he is down for a nap because he throws such a fit for what ever I am using that I can not get anything completed while he is around. OK, these is my excuse for the moment on why I have such a messy house and I am sticking with it!

Day 11

10 years ago today my mister took me out for the first time on our first official date! We had hung out and known each other for a while but this was the first time he actually asked and took me out, can't believe that evening turned into such a wonderful life. I love you babe and thanks for the past and our future years.

Just a little snap of my trash man, I have to say that if anything my son has a future on the clean up crew some were.

Day 9

They are going to the beach and they are going to get married! we are very excited that Uncle KyKy asked Ms. Brandi to be his wife last night! She said "Yes!", we think she might be a little crazy but we are very excited that she will be joining the family!

We went over to her home this evening to celebrate and have a little cake. Stella got her Uncle KyKy to play some princess games with her, she of course had the crown on at all times.

Brandi's niece was there and was very nice and shared all of her toys with Stella. They are both use to being the only little ladies around so life should get very interesting for these two little ladies. They did play very good together tonight though.

Day 8

Happy Birthday Brandi! We hope that you had a wonderful day and were very surprised with all your gifts!
Brandi is my brother Kyle's "Special Friend" but as of this evening she is his future wife! We are very excited that she will be joining our crazy family. My brother has been traveling this week so my mom got the honor of going and picking up her gifts and getting it all ready so he could surprise her with a new puppy and ring! Stella loved on this puppy so much this afternoon I am amazed that it made it through all that loving!

If anyone wonders what I do on the two days a week that my kids go to school, this is it, I clean up mess like this all over my house.

A little early morning cartoon time, the only time my kids sit next to each other without one of them screaming or crying.

Day 2

Stella thinks that her new chairs are great for everything but sitting in them. They were her stage tonight, this morning they were her tent. Love that imagination!
