Oh Sweet Yummy Goodness

Yes, this is the cake that Ben made for me a couple nights ago.
Yes, I said, Ben. 
I was feeling terrible the other night with nausea & the works of prego life.
The only thing that sounded good was a yellow cake with chocolate icing.
I never thought that he would actually make one for me...
But from the picture above..
He did.
It was ohhhh soooo yummy & delicious.
Thanks babe.

Ladies Who Lunch

This past weekend my Sister-in-law, who came in from Frankfort took my Mother-in-law and my Grandmother-in-law out for lunch and did a little shopping.
We had such a good time together.
I wish that I would have been feeling better because later on that night my Sister-in-law & Mother-in-law met up with Becky,
my other Sister-in-law for some more shopping and more eating.
(I really wanted to go... but that's the price you may when you're prego).
Anywhos... we have some great pics from that day...
This is my sister-in-law, Abby with my little stinker bug :-)
We ate lunch at Happy House. YUMMY!!
Can we say, "Strawberry Pastries?"
Oh yeah.
Here's Olivia and Abby again resting while doing some shopping.
Here's Olivia with her Great-Grandmother.
She came down and surprised us.
We had such a good time together.
And last, here's Olivia "trying on shoes." Ha!
Her drama makes me smile.

Sorry to be so long about it...

Hello all!
I promise I haven't forgot about ya. ;-)
Life has just been busy...
ya know with almost 7 month old, a job, a husband & a baby on the way. ha!
Anywhos, last week my amazing husband graduated!
Well, he actually graduated in December,
but his school only holds one graduation per year.
So... this was his FIRST, yes FIRST ever graduation!
My husband was home-schooled.
I am amazed by my mother-in-law...
Four kids and she home-schooled each one of them.
Like I said... AMAZING!
Anywhos.. to the good part.. the pics...
The graduating class of West Kentucky Community & Technical College 2010
The "Hubs"
My two loves
Ben & Ms. Thang with his parents

We only took one picture of me, Ben & O and it was horrible!
I felt awful at his graduation and you can sure tell it in the picture,
so I'm not going to post it. Ha!

Hope you have a great rest of the week & Happy Hump Day! =)

Favorite Books/Children's Books

Show Us Your Life with Kelly's Korner
Today is Friday and over at Kelly's Korner she is hosting
"Show Us Your Life ~ Favorite Books/Children's Books"
Check it out!

I love reading to Olivia.
We just sit in her glider and I read away.
I loved when she was only a few weeks old and at night when she would get up for her feeding I would feed her and then read to her.
I will always cherish those memories. :-)
My favorite book to read to her.. by far... is
I absolutely love everything about it...
"I love you forever
I'll like you for always,
As long as I'm living
My baby you'll be"
For me, being a mom... that is sooo very true.

For myself...
I LOVE to read... when I have time (isn't that what most mom's say). Ha!
I like "fluffy" good reads.. nothing too serious.. just a cute book to get lost in.
Some of my favorites are:

What are your favorite reads?

Happy Friday!

I thought I was going to have a stroke,
no a heart attack,
no maybe I just needed to get my eyes checked,
but no...
after the 3rd one...
I finally believed it....
Yes... look again... We're PREGNANT!!!
At first I was ready to die, but now we are really excited...
It's going to be like having twins, I mean 15 months apart,
but we're happy anyways...
Olivia is going to be a great BIG SISTER!!!

Olivia 1/2 a year Old (6 months)

I guess it's better late than never... Olivia is now SIX MONTHS old!!
I can't believe it!
Another six months and she'll be a YEAR old!!
Boy, time sure does fly...

What are you up to these days??

You now weigh 15 lb. & 13 oz.
(You're getting to be one big girl)
You're very happy lately.
You have the cutest, sweetest, most adorable smile.
(If you can't tell, I'm one proud Mama).
When you were younger you wouldn't smile for anything,
but here lately you love to laugh, smile, grin, etc.

You have been going to daycare now for about 3 weeks.
You really seem  to like it (as you can see from the pic above).
You love all the other babies.
When I come over to visit you, you are usually playing in the floor and looking or babbling on to another baby.
I think that you're going to be outgoing like your Mama and Daddy. (YAY!!)

We have been on 2 overnight trips so far.
The first to Frankfort & the second to Branson.
Frankfort was HORRIBLE!!
You didn't feel very good and you wouldn't sleep.
(We actually came home early).
But the 2nd trip, in Branson, YOU WERE AMAZING!!!
You slept all night in your crib and you had the best time shopping with all us girls.
You're definately going to be a shopper like your Mama. ha!

You still don't really like getting in your carseat
but after we buckle you up you quit crying.
Your Mimi says she wouldn't like to get in your seat either
because it's "too confining".
You are eating baby food twice a day now.
You LOVE sweet peas and bananas. (Not together of course).
You don't really like cereal anymore.
You still take your bottle and you sleep ALL night!
(I love you for that along with many other things you do).
According to your Mimi & Poppy you are like me because I would always rather play with the box then with the toy. Ha!
But you set in the floor for hours and play with your toys.
You are such a sweet and precious and good little girl!
