What I Bought Today

I bought sponge rollers for my little girl!  She didn't give me a single problem putting them in.  I can't wait to do her hair for real with them.  Audrey did get a little upset when she was playing and felt one of them.  Hopefully, she'll get used to them just like her bands and bows.  She just might have better tamed hair the next time you see her.

Are You Serious?

Yesterday, I was out at target and I couldn't believe what my eyes were seeing in JANUARY! SWIMSUITS! And I bought one for Audrey. She now is the proud owner of 3 swimsuits at the tender age of 13 months! She had one for last summer, a new one for our stay at Great Wolf Lodge during Thanksgiving, and now she has one for this summer. At least baby swimsuits are not nearly as pricey as adult swimsuits. I'm not happy with any of mine and I sure spent a lot more. I usually don't buy one until it is absolutely vital for me to get one. By then, they are all picked over and I struggle just to find one in my size. Maybe I should do swimsuit shopping for me before that happens again! I don't know if I can make myself do that right now as we recover financially from Christmas and Audrey's birthday.

Proud to be an American

(Picture has nothing to do with this post.)

I am so proud to be an American today. I enjoyed watching all of the events that occurred today. At the same time, I am very disappointed to read comments by a few white people that diminished the importance of finally electing a non-white male as our commander-in-chief. I still see a lot of room for us to grow together. I am excited for minorities to know that their dreams of having ANY occupation can truly happen in this nation. I am hoping that all men see a loving husband and father and give themselves a good, hard look at themselves and make sure they are being the man they are supposed to be. It seems like everyone in DC was friendly and caught up in the spirit of this step forward in race relations in this country.

On a side note, yesterday marks the age Audrey would be if I followed my mother's timing in having a second child. She jokingly told me I was being pokey. I think not! I don't know how she did it!

Here's a taste of what's been going on at our house.

I'm Updating...Finally

Well, I was updating, but blogger won't let me upload pictures. :(

It's been busy times with holidays, sickness (time and time again), Grandmommy's funeral, Michael's CPA test and busy season. To see pictures of Christmas that's on my facebook, click on this LINK.
