Well...times are a changin'. I've officially had the same blog since 2005! When the new blogger came out I just couldn't change our design. Casey created our faces in photoshop and worked so hard to get it just right. I'm not sure if you even remember what it looked like so.....
Do you see how creative he is! Wow! At least I copied it to have forever. I love our eyes and the outline of Casey's hair. It actually used to have our dog Chloe and her fur right in the middle. Of course that was BM....(Before Molly). He took Chloe out which at the time was just because the baby came along there was no room for all 4 in the picture. Little did we know there was some foreshadowing going on there. Several months later we had to delete (if you will) Chloe from our home due to irreconcilable differences between her and Molly. Molly wanting to play and squeeze and pester the poor dog all day long and Chloe being snooty and snippy and not wanting ANY of the squeezin'. But don't worry folks...all is well and she now lives with my mom. We still see her and Molly jumps up and down every time the dog enters the room and Chloe leaving the room immediately after the first high-pitched squeal. Everyone's happy!
So...now the blog needed a bit of freshening up. And with this new ever changing look, I hope to be a little more consistent with the updates! Ahem...we'll see. :)
And for a smile...

Did my oh so faithful readers think I dropped off the face of the earth?? No worries! I'm back in hopes that I will learn consistency. Here's what we've been up to. Molly, of course, is growing WAY too fast. She's running around everywhere. And can now say Mama, Dada, Bye bye (her fav), Moo, baby, and book. She can also sign please, eat, more, milk, and all done....and is so stinkin' cute doing it. It's so helpful to know what she wants and to ease Molly's frustration when she can't tell us. We're weaning her from the bottle...which she is not a big fan of. We're down to just her bedtime bottle...which I just can't give up. She doesn't like drinking milk out of a cup unless she's distracted into it. :) That's the appropriate way right? She's sleeping 12 hours at night and taking two 2-hour naps during the day. Although the past week or so she's not been sleeping during the day much. I guess it's time for 1 nap a day. :( Hopefully it will be a LONG one!
As for Casey...he's living his dream as an art teacher and just got a head coaching position for the Varsity girls soccer team at Fayette County High School...(MY alma mater) Weird huh? He'll call me every now and then and say "hey babe...I'm walking through your cafeteria or I'm going down the hall past your drama room." Crazy! That place brings back so many wonderful memories.
And for moi...well I'm working 3 nights a week doing 12 hour shifts at the hospital. I'm hoping to go part-time weekends soon, which would be only 2 nights a week. I'm chomping at the bit. I'm enjoying 4 days off a week teaching Molly new things, cuddling with her, and working to make our house a better home.
So here's what you've all been waiting for....Pictures! We've been up to....
A photoshoot...we had a family photo shoot around Molly's birthday so I could get some pictures of the 3 of us as well as some 4 generations photos. My cousin, Lisa, just opened a photography business so she likes to get practice on even us! I'm giving her a shout out...
Pretending to be cool... :)
We enjoyed the holidays with our families and had such a great time relaxing together.
And most recently...we've been hanging out at the park with Murphy (on the warm days of course), enjoying the snow...even though I got snowed in at the hospital for 3 days, and making Valentine cookies!
The girls weren't really into smiling that day. Hee Hee.
Happy Valentine's Day everyone! Go spend some time with the ones you love!
