Happy Tuesday

Iwould like to start today by giving my good friend, Beth, a big fat congrats!! She will be having her first baby this May. I am soooooo excited and can't wait to have a shower for her. I love any excuse to have a get-together. She broke the news in a really neat way, too. A few of us went over to her house on Thursday to watch Grey's Anatomy, and she told us that she would do desert. We had filled our plates, and she came out and told us to look what she had for desert for us. To my and Andy's greatest satisfaction, it was a plate full of yummy petifors! We were going on and on about how much we loved petifors, etc. Pathetic, I know, that there is such excitement about cake. But she just stood there holding the plate. I was looking and thinking about the little cakes. I asked her why they had little feet on them. Yes, it finally struck me and I screamed, "Are you pregnant?" I had to jump up and down, hug, and cry a minute. The little feet where fat little feet, and they were pink, blue, yellow, and green. Beth thought they were too fat for baby feet, but it did the job. Such a neat surprise. I can't wait to look at her registry. I have this obsession of looking at people's registries for some reason. Another strange quirk of myself. So now I can be looking forward to Beth's baby and my best friend, Shauna, who is due in May as well. Four words of advice for my dear Beth-Sleep While You Can!!!!!!!

On another note, my poor baby has been so sick today. Finley has a really bad little cold/sore throat/sinus junk/bad cough. We were up most of the night last night and she had to go to the doctor this afternoon. She sounds terrible. I hope the meds kick in and she comes around tomorrow. I feel delirious tonight. I'm hoping for some good sleep and praying that the Benadryl will work it's magic so she can get some rest. I accomplished quite a feat today with Miss Campbell. After crying it out, she slept 2 hours and 5 minutes. I was giddy! I know it is probably a fluke seeing that she usually only will sleep 20-25 minutes at a time, but I'll take a two hour nap any day. Cross your fingers and your toes for me for tomorrow's nap time. My sister leaves for California for work on Sunday and will be gone till Friday and I'm just praying that Finley isn't contagious. I shutter to think about keeping her sick, with no momma here. Poor Shane-that would do him in!!!!

I'm am working on Finley's Christmas stocking tonight. It just came in the mail and I'm jazzed! With a little luck, I will finally have all of our stockings done and ready to hang on the mantle this year. Kyle and Slade have had theirs several years now, but mine has been a work-in-progress. I finally finished it and have it at the store being monogrammed. I am going to work like crazy and get hers done by Thanksgiving so I can hang all four of them and we can be one big happy stocking family. They are felt and sequins-pretty darn cute. I'll post a pic of them all. I'm quite proud, seeing that I'm not a seamstress at all. I'm determined. I'm going to post a picture from last Christmas to get you in the holiday spirit. After all, it's only a little more than two months away!!!!! Have you done any of your shopping yet? Yeah, me neither.

I have made stockings for all my girls. Well Emma Claire's isn't finished and reading your blog reminded my that I have to get it done soon. I hope that you got some rest and everyone is feeling better. Good Luck with the stocking. I can't wait to see the pictures.
