Long overdue post

Ashley spent the weekend with us last weekend while her parents were out of town. Kathryn fell in love with her... blanket? thingy? She wanted to wear it around her neck all weekend! She also learned to say "Ash" :o).
Not sure why, but she LOVES to get in the refrigerator. Every time I open the door, she runs over so she can see in. Lately she's learned that she can take a step up and reach more things. Of course that's such a help to Mom :).
Kate reading her story book while Mom fixes dinner. (No, my floor is not really clean enough for this)

Helping Dad open his birthday presents!

With Aunt Rosie and Cousin Claire


I had let her outside to play while I finished up the dishes. Obviously I was not watching closely enough (mainly because I didn't know she knew how to do this!), but peeked out to check on her and she had climbed into the pool with all of her clothes on.

What a handful! She is growing up so quickly! She can say pretty much any one syllable word, and she repeats whatever we say. Her favorite things to do are go "out"side, and "up"stairs. It's still hard to believe my baby is going to be a "big" sister soon! Time really does fly!

No way!!!

It doesn't matter what you ask Kathryn, her answer is almost always, "No way!" Usually she is profusely shaking her head the whole time she is saying it. Check it out...
Breakthrough: Of course, as soon as I posted that... I asked her if she wanted to go outside, and she started to shake her head no, then caught herself and got a huge grin on her face and said, "ses!!" What do I know! It's not like I've been practically her sole provider for 13 months!!!

'tis the season... for football, that is

I'm not a Titan's fan. In fact, I'm not a sports fan at all. If anything, I am a fair-weather Colts fan. In other words, after they've won half the season, I'll start paying attention. But, going to the first game (even if it is pre-season), sitting in an executive suite one down from Young's family, and getting free food and drinks, now that's for me! I'll cheer for any team under those conditions. After almost going into labor just walking up to the stadium, though, I did promise Brad if he won any more tickets, he could take Adam instead :).

So its been two weeks...


And here's what we've been up to in a nutshell...

Got new thread rack (an embroiderer's dream!!!)


Went up to Indiana for Angie's wedding. (Had a WONDERFUL time visiting with old friends, and Angie was a beautiful bride)



Got to spend lots of quality time with Aunt Heidi and cousins Taylor and Ella

Got to spend time with more old friends (plus Jon, who isn't blogging yet :)

Left Kathryn with Mom and Dad and celebrated our 4th anniversary at a bed & breakfast in Indy

Ummm... left the camera at Mom and Dad's and didn't take any pictures after Friday night at the wedding :o/

Saw these enormous tires on our way to Granpa & Gramma's house on Saturday. Anybody have a clue what they're for?

For those of you who have been asking, according to the midwife, I should only have about 7 more weeks to go! If this baby is anything like Kathryn, that translates into 9 :). Only time will tell...

Hope everyone is having a good week!
