After reading Emily's blog last night and reading the blog of this family http://half12.blogspot.com/, it made me so sad for them and so proud of how strong they are, even though I've never met them. So, in light of that blog and one of my new year's resolutions (Dana, you know all about this), I thought we'd share some of the things we love.
1- Emily Grace's cute little strings of mumble jumble that she sings to herself day and night. "Martian" songs. Just thinking about it makes me grin. I find myself humming little tunes to myself sometimes too... I can't wait to get home at night to hear about her day and listen to her jibber jabber. There's no doubt about it, she has her mommy's gift of GAB!
2-The way she gets "Uh OH!" backwards. It comes out "Uh HO!" So innocent and sincere.
3-Our Faith in God, our country, and each other. I love that faith is in us. When there is nothing to grasp onto, there's always faith.
4-Mandarin Oranges. Our household would cease to survive without those little dollops of EGU- calming majic!
5-Our friends- You guys are the best. Your little comments, your checking-in emails, your phone calls of gossip or advise (Thank you so much Kim for your call last night- I needed that!). I can't tell you how much we rely on you, our dear friends. And yes, that's you, reading this now.
6- Pink pink pink (sorry Chris, but it's consumed our world now!) Monogrammed pink is even better!
7- Our WONDERFUL families. They have given us and taught us more than we could ever have asked for. We would be nothing without you.
8- Friends (the tv show). I could watch Friends re-runs for the rest of my life. I love it. And I'm grooming Emily Grace to love it too. From 6-6:30 we sit on the couch and cuddle-and she tells me about her day (Martian Talk). It's not every night but once in a while. That's our time and I love it.
9-Clemson Sports. I don't love watching sports, but Chris does and it deserves a shout out. Clemson Sports are much easier to watch than regular sports for teams that I don't know or care anything about. Last night I was clutching a couch cushion (clutching cusions tight and yelling at the TV has been proven to make teams win...) as Clemson squeeked ahead of VT to pull off the win. What a good game! I didn't get THAT into it because we kept going back to My Name is Earl and The Office when the game was slow, but regardless, my blood runneth ORANGE! I can't wait for the Super Bowl (uh hum, commercials!)
10- Snow. I want it so badly I can taste it. PLEASE SNOW!
11-Sunday afternoons at home.
12-Babies bathing suits. They're so cute and I love the big butt daiper look!
