All I want for Christmas is my two bottom front teeth...and I got 'em

This is the song little Audey has been singing, okay we have been singing to her. And she did get both teeth. Today She is 8 months old. And time is flying way to fast but I have been loving every minute of it...okay not the minutes in the middle of the night..hehe! She has been a mover and a shaker. She is pulling up on everything. Trying her harderst to walk. She stands up in her bed and is still just the cutiest thing ever!

I still know I need to get better at taking pictures of the other two, my next post will have pictures of them...

Mom what does normal mean?

This is the question asked to me by my 4 year old..(can u believe almost 5) anyway that is another blog. So back to what is normal...when Lauren asked me this, I knew right away I had a problem. She thinks the crazy life we live is normal, un be known to her, its a little out of whack. But we are working on it...Here are some pictures of the new house.

I must give my husband a lot of praise here. He single handed moved almost everything we own. There were days when I did not think he was going to make it. But the prize is well worth it. We have been working our little elves off to get everything moved and settled. We have everything unpacked and settled, with a few minor things still to be organization..some of that just comes with time!

This is the grand entrance you walk into. It is really pretty.

This is the living room and the kitchen all in one area. While it is an open -type floor plan, its not totally open to everything...

This is the view from the kitchen looking at the living room...notice my red paint

This is the living room...if you know me I can not live in a house with out paint on the wall. So yes in the two weeks we have lived here, I have painted the living room and painted the wall where the bar stools are.

This is the wall I painted under neath the bar...its my favorite

This is the dining room

Here are some adorable pictures of Audrey that have been lingering around on my camera. Its been awhile since i posted some pictures of her, and the girls. I need to work on taking more pictures of them, I have been slacking in that department!

Turkey day was yummy! I think it was one of the best ever!
I am sure most of you our out shopping today....I am curious to see what all goodies you all found. Due to the move, and the baby, I did not get up early to shop...I am going to try and squeeze some shopping time in this afternoon

Change, change, and more change

So its been awhile since i have blogged, and I have so many new things going on. First things first. This may come to a shock for some of you, but we are moving closer to town. We have actually been in the process for a few weeks now. But officially at the first of the month we will no longer live in Coweta. I could go in to the long drama story but I really do not want to discuss some of it over the blog.
I will be glad to share the details with any of you via email.
On a new note...Miss Audrey got her first tooth last week.
Another note..Shawn has been teaching me Auto-CAD so that I can start helping him. That has been fun yet challenging. Having your husband try to teach you a trade, he has done for 15+ years, is interesting. As some of you know, Shawn is now working just for the Integrated. So far, even with the economy, things have been going very well. Anyways, with him being home all day, makes for even more change around here. As if that was not enough...due to our move, after Christmas, Lauren will be starting school at Victory. Oh boy mama does not want her to grow up. But I know that she is very bored at home. And with having Audrey, my time is spread so thin at home. Lauren is a little nervous, but I really think it will be good for her. Next year she will be in Kindergarten. I just can not believe my baby is growing up! Its funny, with Faith, I never really felt this way, with Lauren I just want to ball her up and keep her small forever! If any of you know how I can do that, please let me know.
Okay so that's all I have for tonight. I think that is enough! I am tried and ready to go to bed. With moving, taking care of Audrey, cooking Thanksgiving dinner, I am just pooped!!!
Hope you and Your Families all have a very Wonderful Thanksgiving!!

Audrey is now 6 months old. My oh my where has the time gone.
She can sit up, if you put her up. She is getting ready to crawl. She has been working on it. Alot! The other day, I got out some baby toys I kept from Faith and Lauren. One of them is a gumball machine. And she love, love, loves it. Also a play phone. She really loves that one. Lauren came home from school and we started playing with her. Lauren was so sweet trying to teach her how to play. Our playdate was so mcuh fun!

This is my favorite picture.

Sister Love

Okay I just love this. I want to cherrish her

Cotton Eye Joe

Lauren is taking ballet/jazz lessons at South Tulsa Dance Co. I have to brag a little here. This is a wonderful studio. It is decorated too cute inside, is clean and very modern. They have like 4 studios. They have video cameras recording the classes, that are displayed on nice flat screens out side the class so you can see. Anyways it is really a nice place!

This week the parents were invited to join in the class the last 30 minutes to see the girlz progress. The girls were so cute. The jazz song they are dancing to is the cotton eye joe. It is absolutely darling. If i can figure out the video thing, I will post a video of them dancing. Lauren seems to really like the jazz.

The ballerina

Lauren and I know no make hair has been having issues..which has just made me feel all ends tomorrow. I am seeing my hair girls at 8:30 in the am!!!

She is growing up so fast...last night I crawled in bed with her just to snuggle!

Audreys room

A friend of mine is expecting a baby. We ere talking on the phone yesterday and I told her I would send her some pictures of Audrey's room. Well I just realized that I never posted any on my blog. If any of you wanted to see what her room looks like, here it is.

I have to say, by far this is my favorite room I have done. The green stripe around the room is ribbon, put up with scrapbook minky dot glue. Painting the circles, well lets just say I am so glad to be done with those. They took a lot of work. Then I made about 30 bows, and just hot glued them to the ribbon.

I found her furniture at a baby boutique here in town. They offered to sell it to me at a discounted price if I would take the floor model. Of course I will. I am really really happy with her furniture.

Check back later. I am changing some things around in Faith's room and we are painting!! Will post a blog when I get done.

Yum, Yum

Over the weekend, we bought Audrey a highchair. I fed her some applesauce, and she loved it! I also gave her a sippy cup, and she really likes it. The nipple is silicone, and she loves to chew on it. And when she does, water comes out. She seems to really like eating. She grasps on to my hand tight, trying to get the spoon in her mouth. It is really funny! Any how here are some pictures of her eating

I am a great big bundle of Potentiality

Lauren's school had a Sunday night show. They fed us spaghetti, and then each class sang a song. Lauren's class sang the song I am a promise. It was very, very cute. Especially when they had to say "I am a great big bundle of potentiality". I just giggled listening to these 4 year olds say this big word. I am going to try and take a video of her singing it and put in on the blog.

Here are some pictures from the night
