Lilly's Room

Lilly's room is coming right along. Everything is finished except for the dresser! Billy is having a friend make it and I am really impatient about it because I want to put all the clothes away before she comes. I need to just be thankful!

Here are the letters for her room. My friend Jane made them for me! She is so talented!

Here is her room so far! I will post another one once I really finish it. (Addie is already waiting to help).

We are ready for you Lilly girl!

I thought I'd post some pics of showers for Lilly.

This was our Sunday School shower for Carissa and me. They had tons of food, fun games (that weren't too baby shower gamey), and a huge basket of gifts! So generous!

My sweet class surprised me with a baby shower! They got Lilly the cutest outfits!!
 Random picture I found of me pregnant with Addie. 

My grade level friends took me to dinner and got me this cake from Miss Muffin's! Yum! They also collected enough money for Lilly to get a monitor!

We are so thankful for all of our generous family and friends! We are so excited for Lilly's arrival!

Addie dipping her first oreo!


Also...I wanted to keep record of the cute things Addie says nowadays: (this is for Billy and me some of you will be bored)
1) "Bonkersame" that is what she calls basketball games. Every now and then Billy will take her to a Collierville game (which she loves to dance with the cheerleaders at).
2) She says "I smell somefing"
4) When she wants some of your drink she will say "just a little bit" and hold out her hand.
5) Every time I put her to bed as soon as I get to the door she says "Mommy?...give me a kiss....Mommy.....um...cover me up.....Mommy....I need one more hug" I get to the door 4 or 5 times with her saying that and I am not strong enough to just walk out. Well...actually I did last night and the "mommy's?" just got louder. Billy puts her down once and she is asleep.

Happy New Years!!!

(Alicia...if you are reading this I am copying you! haha)

That being said...we had a great low-key New Year's Eve. I love holidays (especially Halloween) but I LOATH NEW YEARS!! I can't pin point why I don't like it. I don't like staying up late and the "Al Lang Syne" song depresses me for some reason. I guess I don't like change and the fact the year is over is just sad. I know a new one is beginning but it's going by too fast. Not to mention we only have till December 21st now until the world ends so that's depressing too. On the other hand, I'm excited about this New Year because I get to meet my second baby girl...Lilly!

Here are some pics of our New Year's Eve. We had a fun time at Erica and Micah's house. I'm so thankful for my family and friends and celebrating the new year with them.

Disregard the hugeness on the couch. I'm not big...Emily and Jessica are just extremely skinny!! And Alicia is just plain cute pregnant!

Oh and I changed wardrobes too

Go Tigers Go!

Addie went to her first Memphis basketball game last week! She had so much fun! Her favorite part was meeting the tiger and of course getting her popcorn!

Last of Christmas fun update...

We went to zoo lights one night last week.

We went looking at Christmas lights with Granny on Christmas Eve. This was our favorite house!
