Sick visit

Being sick right before Christmas is no fun.  Chloe was on antibiotics already for an ear infection, however I didn’t think it was working.  Callie was having a nasty cough also, so before Christmas got here I took both the girls in to get a check up.  Apparently everyone else in Columbia had the same idea, cause they were all there too.  We made the most of our hour long visit…

we read lots of books


lots of silly faces


and checked our eye sight


after the girls were finally seen, we headed to the pharmacy to pick up BOTH of their new prescriptions.  Gotta love a bug that over stays their welcome…

Our Christmas Card

This year I had a vision of what I wanted our card to look like and it about drove me crazy trying to make it happen!  The first day we went to take pictures it was FREEZING, so the girls were complaining the whole time and I didn’t love any of the pictures.


Then the second trip to try and take them they were putting up the Christmas tree at the State House and I was afraid I’d get those huge white trucks in the picture, which in the end you wouldn’t have been able to see.  So, the third and final trip we got one that would work, out of a bunch of out-takes!


We even had a few onlookers, maybe making sure I didn’t let my kids run out into Main St….

I love the way it turned out and that it shows the girls personalities off!

Potty Training, or not

Chloe has decided that she no longer wears diapers.  She literally woke up and now refuses to wear a diaper.  We totally skipped the potty training part of the whole process.  I have no idea if that is even normal, but it’s working!  She tells me when she needs to go potty and has only had a couple of accidents since her decision.  When she sets her mind to something, world you better watch out because she means to see if through!  We are now a house that doesn’t have any diapers (except at night) and that feels odd to be honest.  Four years of changing a little one’s diaper every day to not has been a nice change of pace.

Way to go Chloe, you make this momma proud!


First day diaper free

Levi’s little….

When Levi was just over 3 months old, Kelsey and DR found out that they were going to have another baby!  It was finally time to find out what they were having and Kelsey asked if I could watch Levi for them while they went to the Dr. to find out.  The day before though we took a poll to see what everyone thought they would have, Callie and I guessed girl, Chloe and Vaughn guessed boy.


So that morning came and Levi went with us to school while they went to the Dr.  Callie loved having him ‘take’ her to school!


A little later Kelsey came buy to pick Levi up and told me what they were having…

a BOY!


How fun!!  Even though I guessed girl, a boy couldn’t be more perfect!


A little while later they settled on his name, Jude August Granger.  He’ll be affectionately called JAG by his Aunt Erin :)  Cannot wait to meet sweet JAG in early May!

November from my phone

The girls have really enjoyed sharing a room, however getting them to be sleeping angels take a little longer than it used to


I tried a new recipe from Pinterest, and it was YUMMY- Lasagna Soup


love our morning snuggles!


squeaky clean


Callie got her school pictures back 1. It’s my favorite so far 2. She’s just beautiful 3. She looks so much older that my heart hurts a little every time I look at it, in a good way


I broke down and we listened to our first Christmas song, Mariah Carey Christmas gets me every time!

Right before Thanksgiving we had some of our friends from Nashville come into, love catching up with them!

I ordered/bought Callie a pair of pants for the first time in probably a year.  She said she liked them, now if she’ll wear them….


Levi got to come with us to school one morning while his mommy and daddy went to find out if he was having a brother or sister!
