My bullets

My friend Meredith at "Proud MaMa of Two" (check out my blogroll) is doing a post on her life in bullets so I am joining...

I am totally obsessed and have the terrible habit of drinking a "Vanilla Diet Coke Easy Ice" from Sonic AND if you mention that you are a teacher (which I am on Tues. & Thur. and at that shady?) you can get a drink for 1/2 price EVERYDAY...JACKPOT!!!!!!!!!!!!! It might be a little sad too that Chris has gone to get me a drink before and they ask how I am doing...sad.

I LOVE HGTV and would redo my entire house right now if it were financially possible.

I as well LOVE...ADORE the Pioneer waste line does not.

I use "..." WAY to much.

Can't stand and can honestly say I have never typed "LOL". If you have I do not think less of you. Guess I just did type "LOL"...did it again...GRRRRR! :)

I LOVE washing clothes...LOVE folding clothes...LOATHE putting them away. Quite often Chris asks if something is clean and my response usually is "It is probably folded in the laundry room.

My new motto that I am trying to apply to everything is "Fail to plan...plan to fail."

Know nothing about computers...hence no "bullets" can't figure out where they are and am too lazy to wait til Chris gets home and have him show me how to do it.

Told you I overuse "..."

Photography Question

Hello all my family & friends...the few that read :).

Chris bought me a camera a couple months ago and it takes amazing pictures. I have alot to learn though. I was wondering what kind of "photo-imaging-cropping-highlighting" software you use????

If you could let me know that would be a big help.

We Might Have A Problem

Yesterday we went to Norman for all the pre-game fun. We took pictures and could not get Kaityn to smile. I asked her why she wouldn't smile. Her response was..."I didn't want to." OH DEARY ME!!!!

Happy Birthday Christopher

Nine years ago today Christopher Michael Anderson joined our family. What a relief it was to have him here. After going into labor Sunday morning at 6:30, he was finally born Tuesday morning. He weighed a whopping 9 lbs., 1 oz. and was 22 in. long. He spent a week in the NICU because I had the strep b virus and didn't know it. That was quite an emotional week. So excited to have a sweet baby but leaving him in the hospital was heart wrenching.

He finally came home and life has been an adventure ever since. What a joy he is. He is CONSTANTLY singing, humming, and making many other noises. He is an amazing big brother. He takes care and watches over all his siblings. I LOVE watching him interact with Kaityn Mae. He loves her and she adores him. He asks how her day is and will read her a book just about any time that she asks.

Christopher started *gulp* third grade this year. He enjoys reading and announced the other night at dinner that all the girls at his school like him. We might have to talk about this...ha!!! He is just like his Daddy. He has NEVER met a stranger and anyone is his friend.

We are so blessed to have him in our family. He is a joy to this Momma. So grateful that I was chosen to take care of him on the earth.

Happy Birthday Bubba...I love you!

Today is not actually Kaityn's birthday. It is tomorrow (Feb. 19th). I won't be able to post until later tomorrow so I thought I would do it tonight.

Kaityn Mae is such a joy. I find myself trying to remember every little thing she does because I can't believe she is turning 3. It goes by so fast.

My Dear Kaityn Mae-Mae,

Your Mommy loves you so much. Today you and I spent alot of the day sitting in the big chair and just playing...patty-cake, singing, reading books, snuggling...and I loved it. You woke up from your nap and stumbled in with sleepy eyes and we just snuggled. You are the last one to want to snuggle with your Mommy. Your brothers and sister think they are too old for that.

You make me laugh all the time with the cute things you say and do. Every time I am in the kitchen you think I am cooking and will run to the laundry room and get the step stool to "help." I love it. Very rarely are you seen without your baby "Owie" and you will wear a dress every day. As a matter of fact you will cry if I don't let you wear a dress. Usually the first thing you say in the morning is, "I wear a dress?". You look up at me with those sweet eyes and how can I say "No" (even though sometimes I do and you might throw a fit). :) I love how you will walk into a room, put your hands on your hips and just talk away very passionately. Sometimes we understand you and sometimes we don't. :)

You are so verbal and happy until a stranger talks to you or says something and then all of a sudden you are shy. I don't know who you get that from. :) You have a couple of friends you talk about all the time and I love seeing you give them hugs and play with them when we go to church. You are so sweet and show concern for others when they are sad and hurting.

My prayer for you is that your sweet heart will continue to grow and that you will always have the concern and care for others as you do now. I pray that you will love the Lord and that His love will shine through you and make you more beautiful.

I am so thankful God chose me to be your Mommy. Your baby pictures look just like mine and from what NaNa and Grandad say you act just like me which I know is sweet, kind, loving, etc. ha!!!! I love you so much and look forward to watching you grow!!!!

Your Mommy


Thankful Thursday

Well, just went to the mailbox and got an unexpected bill. To be honest with you I don't feel very thankful, I feel more panicy (is that a word).

I am going to choose to be thankful because I am blessed.

1. I am thankful that tomorrow my little girl will turn 3 and boy what a joy she is!!!! She is ALL girl and I love it.

2. I am thankful that the we are almost finished with the stomach bug and it really has not been that bad.

3. I am thankful to see pictures of my sweet nephew Jackson with his cute teeth. What a sweet baby.

4. I am thankful for beautiful sunshine. I love being able to enjoy the sunshine. Even though I can't go outside and play I can open the blinds and curtains and soak in the sun.

5. I am thankful for my kids who love to read.

6. I am thankful that our schedule is not so jammed packed that having sick kids has not thrown us all into a frenzy. We have been able to stay home and relax and recoup.

7. I am thankful that even though most of us have been sick the past 2-3 days the house is pretty straight and clean and the laundry is caught up on.

8. I am thankful for a God who knows me inside and out and still loves me!!!!!! Will never understand that.

What are you thankful for today???
