A Fish Tale

This is an awesome tale . . . Hoops is one of my co-workers and she thought it okay to leave her fish for the entire Thanksgiving Break (without food). We (the office) decided to steal the fish and hold it for ransom. Upon Hoops' return, she was forced to make a list of the 10 things making her a good mother. After some debate, Bruce (the fish) was returned.

Later in the day . . . Hoops went to clean Bruce's bowl and left him in a cup on the top shelf of her bookcase. We (the office) placed a fake fish on the floor with the cup lid (see pic). Upon Hoops' return . . . she had a huge meltdown (with screaming, crying, and eventually laughing).

Will she leave him at Christmas? Surely not!

Marleigh vs. Nat

Marleigh is growing and Nat is shrinking. I'm working on being healthier and it is pretty obvious in the following pictures.

Please Note: This is not a Before and After picture, but an in progress picture. Enjoy.

They came and they went!

Marleigh and Jessica came to Kentucky for a four day weekend. Oedipus wasn't so sure about baby noises! Oed slept under the covers for pretty much the entire weekend. Marleigh, Jessica and I enjoyed shopping and really cold weather. Only snow flurries made a showing, but the temps were just enough to keep us inside! Marleigh is b-e-a-utiful. She's fun and changing so much each day. Enjoy the pics of her time in Kentucky.

Could she BE any cuter?

Ready for Christmas!

Say What?

Marleigh is coming alive! She is coming to visit Kentucky in two days! Can't wait to see her and introduce her to her cousin Oedipus! They are going to get along great!

Baby Marleigh - the smartest baby on earth!

Julianne took third place in the costume contest in Wilmore Wednesday night. It must of been because of her amazing outfit Chelsea made. Or maybe it was the incredible makeup?

Marleigh is here!

Marleigh Thompson arrived yesterday in Fort Worth, Texas! She is beautiful. I can't wait to see her next weekend for the first time and begin spoiling her!
Check out all the hair!
Good work Blake and Jess!

Backyard Challenge

The continual battle of the backyard continues. It finally rained in Kentucky so I decided to try to get some grass to grow in the ex-flowerbed. I have discovered smaller is better in the gardening area!

One more weekend!

I spent this past weekend working on the house. SURPRISE! I was transplanting the rose bushes from the back to the front when I discovered huge stepping stones under the flowerbed. I removed the flowerbed, stones, and then replaced the bed.

I did have to buy a few more stones . . . so you will notice the bright new ones on the front. I also lost my car keys during my multiple adventures to Lowe's. I'm just praying they are not under the new front path. I've taken two Advil and hope to be ready to work in the yard again by the middle of the week. The backyard is my next project!
