Fridge Meme

Ok. I was actually tagged twice (by Amy and Leslie) to do this fridge meme. Now I still don't exactly know how you pronounce this word (meme) but I am going to do it anyway. I still haven't found my nice camera. I am thinking I need to face the fact that I probably lost it, althought I would rather blame my 4 year old. I found my old one but it's not as good. It has a couple of pixels, but there's no zoom and you can't tell how the picture looks until you download it. It takes regular batteries, of which we have none, so I took some from the remote. And as you can tell, the date stamp is wrong. Oh well.

So here goes ...

I didn't clean up the fridge, but like Leslie, I am SOOO glad the pics are supposed to show the outside and NOT the inside of the fridge. On the front of the fridge, I have my monthly calendar, family pics, magnets, and the graph we made in school which shows the number of girls/boys in our family.

On the side are more pics of friends and our trusty alphabet letters. We try to keep the magnets up high because Calvin likes to eat the magnet part off the back of the magnets. I guess that's why all the paper clips are sticking to him!

I tag Kim and Kelly!

Well, I have been looking for my camera to post some pictures of the last couple of weekends but I still haven’t found it. My parents came up from Georgia the weekend before last for a visit. I’ll try to post some pics when I find the camera.

I asked my 4-year old daughter if she had used Mommy’s camera and if she knew where it was (since she sometimes 'borrows' things like my car keys). She told me it was in the attic. Later she came and told me that the camera was outside in an airplane. So, she hasn’t been much help.

I sure hope it’s somewhere around here. Nothing is where it normally is since I have been feeling pretty “yucky” for the last few weeks. I hope to be able to catch up on housework soon – but at least Calvin likes to eat the crumbs off the kitchen floor! That sure has helped! But I think I may be taking a turn for the better. I think I am usually rid of the “yuckies” by 11 weeks (I will be 11 weeks this coming weekend) and then I am just plain tired.

My husband has been a trooper. He hasn’t complained when the choices for supper have been: frozen corn dogs or frozen pizza. He hasn’t complained when he had to get his clean clothes out of the huge pile on the chair in the corner of our room (at least they’re clean, right). And he hasn’t complained about “taking over” the house and kids when he gets home from work! I am a blessed woman. (But I am carrying HIS child, ya know!)

This past weekend the kids spent Friday night with Granny and PawPaw so we had the house to ourselves! We woke up (blissfully late) on Saturday and spent the day in Colonial Williamsburg. It was a fun and relaxing day. We missed our babies but enjoyed being able to spend some time alone together.

I hope I can post some pics soon.

I read this post today by Tim Challies about Halloween. It is an interesting article and has us thinking.

The Reason Why Posts are Sporadic...

Eight and a half weeks along. Just trying to keep from feeling "yucky"! We are excited as we wait to meet this new little person sometime around the end of April! Emmie thought we were bringing it home from the Doctor today. Sorry little girl, only about 30 more weeks to wait!

A Busy Season

I know I have been 'out of touch' lately. Sorry about that. We all go through 'busy' seasons don't we? Here are some good reads for this busy season in your life.

Last week GirlTalk had some tips for the busy season in your life. Try to real all of them.

Leslie had a great post today about attitudes. Being a “Mom” is a full-time calling and is a worthy vocation! Sometime it is easy to forget that when so many other things are competing for our attention.

As always, I love John Piper’s weekly article. Last week, he reminded us not to compare ourselves to others. Read Piper’s "What Is That to You? You Follow Me!" and be freed from comparing yourself to someone else!

Have a great day!
