Why is Macie growing up so fast?

Last night while eating supper she asked for Nick's napkin so he gave it to her b/c she does like wiping her mouth off. Well, she sits back down at her Little Tikes picnic table and proceeds to place the napkin on her lap. We could not help but to laugh and just watch with amazement at how much she is learning and doing these days.

And, after typing this I wish I would have taken a picture. I need to get better at that. :)

We had a pretty uneventful weekend. It was cold so we decided we'd just stick around the house for the most part. I got everything on my list ALMOST done. I have to go buy a clear tote thingy for my earrings...Yes, I have already bought some. I can't stand the thought of just throwing them in the jewelry box so if I can find something that'll work then they will be organized for me to find easier as well. I got a few things cooked and put up in the freezer, cleaned the house....I'd like to do a deep deep cleaning soon but it can wait. I did not get any bread made...I will one day just not right now. I want it to be good so I would like a little more time to find a good recipe that will not let me down.

My parents come for a visit on Monday. Mama had a doctors appointment so while she was there Daddy, Macie and I stopped by to see Amy at work...they were not busy at all so Macie kind of had run of the house. She likes Ms. Lynn so she run back and worth between us and her. After Mama got out of her appt. we headed over to Goody's b/c they are closing and having a huge sale. I got a few things but not much since the prices aren't cheap enough yet. I'll probably go back by there in a few days to see if they've marked things down more. After that we all ate at Cracker of my fav places to eat out..then headed to Amy's to see Cooper. He is getting so big and is sooo cute! He is still in the puppy stage since he is only 3 months old so he likes to play but is so loving.

We are go to Charleston, SC this weekend...and by we I mean me and Nick. This is our first trip alone since Macie was born. I'm soooooo EXCITED I can't hardly stand it. I love spending time with him and I know it'll do us and our marriage good. Macie will be staying with Amy all weekend and my parents will probably come down Saturday to help.
Well, I guess that's all the updating I have for now. Til next time!

Macie did well in the 2 year old room yesterday. She was only there til lunch. Nick's dad wanted to keep her for the afternoon since they were heading back to VA this morning so today will be the true test.
I just found out we'll be closed Monday for the holiday. I'm planning on deep cleaning the house, finishing my organizing projects, and make some meals to stock pile my freezer. If I get just one of those things done I'll be happy.....
I'm also going to attempt to make bread. Nick would like sourdough but I have to make a sourdough starter and that will take a few days so I'm going to start that and maybe just try plain bread this weekend. I have a bread maker that I've never used and after reading several sites it seems most ladies would rather not use it but I figure I'm going to give it a shot.
I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend. Stay warm! I know we are freezing our behinds off around here.....

Woohooo! I'm so glad it is back on.
I just have to say I don't like the new judge...she brings nothing to the table. Just a simple yes or no is about all you get out of her. Wonder how long she'll last?

I do like how they aren't focusing so much on the I mean terrible...auditions this year. That always bugged me.

I have actually liked a few of the ones they have let thru to "Hollywood".
Can't wait to see them perfrom different songs in a few weeks.

I really need to start updating more frequently.

I've been sick since Monday...I started the sore throat thing Sunday night.
I feel better just still can't talk very well and my breathing is a little rough but all in all I'm good.

I had to stay home with Macie on Tuesday b/c she bit a kid at school on Monday. This was the third day.....she bit twice two different days last week.
So, after thinking about it and have many discussions Nick and I thought maybe she needed to move up to the 2 year old room. Being with kids older may "teach her a lesson" They can at least tell her no.
Well, Macie starts in the 2 year old room today. Nick had to pick her up around 2:30 yesterday afternoon for biting again. He talked with Teresa(the director) and she thought it was a good idea too. Since Macie was the oldest in her class they were afraid she'd bite the really small--like the barely 1 year old--kids. We'll see how this goes. She will also be potty trained. We have to take pull ups and several changes of clothes for them to start trying. UGH....where has time went? She is growing up too fast.

Finally, I'm posting all of my pics. It has been a crazy weekend. I had to work yesterday afternoon and today since we have visitors coming to the office on Tuesday. Anyway, the office had to be in tip top shape and everything needed to be in order. I certainly missed my weekend especially since I now have a sore throat. My hope is that I'll wake up in the morning and it'll magically feel better--what are the chances, right? I can dream though!

Anyway, Here are my pictures.
Wednesday--Jan. 7th
I finally finished cleaning out the hall closet today.

Thursday--Jan. 8th
I found this in the mix of all the blankets and was wondering what I could do with it so it could be seen. It was given to us as a wedding gift from Amy. I decided it would look good in our bedroom.

Friday--Jan. 9th
I got my ears pierced when I was in 6th grade but didn't take care of them as I should have and they got infected get the point. I've been thinking over the last few months I should get my ears pierced again....I finally did it! I have to wear these little earrings for 6 weeks and then I can start changing them out. And, this time I'm taking care of them.

Saturday--Jan. 10th
Nick and I went out to dinner while Amy kept Macie for us. When we got home she was just being silly and stood up on Nick's feet. I ran to get the camera but missed the opportunity. She did however start posing for me. I got some cute shots....

Sunday--Jan. 11th
On top of going to work today and not feeling so well. I made chili for supper and put the rest of it in the freezer for Chili dogs and the times when I just have to have chili but would rather not have to make it. There is also some beef broth.

I couldn't get my picture for Wednesday to add last night so I will post two tonight instead.
I tell ya...I'm not in a good mood today and I'm not sure why...Ever get like that? Life is good and I have no reason to be in a rotten mood but boy I'm GRUMPY!!

I'm a sucker for a good bargain especially if I can do alittle work to it and make it my own.

Right now Macie has dark furniture and we'd like for her to have white when we change her room out to her "big girl" room. We'll save her crib and dresser for baby #2. Beds are not cheap and add in a dresser, nightstand, etc and it can add up. Although I probably will not skemp on the dresser and such I would like to find a bargain for the headboard/footboard.
I've been looking around and I'm just amazed out how many neat ideas are out there.
Here is one I think I'm going to use for Macie's room. Nick can build the headboard and once I pick out her new bedding and colors I'll decide what fabric I'll buy for it.

And, here are a few I really like and will keep in mind for the future.

My hubby working on something for the house. He has been a real handy man lately and getting all kinds of stuff done around here.

Project 365
I just found out about this and I'm so excited to start.
I'll be taking one photo a day for the year 2009. I'll post just the picture or a picture with a short description or message each day.
I think this is going to be fun....please join in with me if you'd like to capture 2009 in pictures.
I've taken a few photos since Jan. 1 so I'm going to cheat and go back and post them. :)

I was lucky enough to have had the last two weeks off of work so I've been kind of MIA. I hope in the next few days I can catch up on reading and posting. I have lots of pictures to share of Christmas with my family and of Macie on Christmas morning.

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and that 2009 is good to ya!
