After watching Downton this week, I remarked to Phil, "I am just amazed that Lord Grantham is the LORD of the house, but Lady Grantham is telling him he can't sleep in his own room!"
|You killed our daughter, prepare to sleep on the couch.|
Phil replied "But that's how it is, women have always called the shots in that area. When have you ever slept on the couch?" Touche, my love, touche.
One of my best friends in real life started a blog!
|Sarah and Bill|
Sarah worked with my hubby for 5 years (I think?) and also lived in the condo downstairs from us with her sister, Katie. Now she is a married wife living in Indiana and mommy to Addie with another baby girl in the making. Go give her some love here.
What do you do when your friend is 2 days overdue? Take her out and get pedicures of course!
|Marijanna is smart and brings her own polish from home for future touchups.|
|Poor lady, working hard on my corns.|
|I chose a Valentiney color|
|Pretty just in time for pushing. Her, not me.|
Eamon's Kindergarten homework this week included a heart that said "Jesus Loves", where he had to draw his family. This picture makes me so happy, I just love our family. And I love that this is Evie's first appearance in a Martin Family portrait.
I'm thinking of an idea to start a Traveling Rosary where people could sign up and when you receive the beads, you say the Rosary for a week straight (with a specific set of intentions each day), then mail it on to the next person. Would any of you be interested in this?
Phil and I have decided on our future kid's name. No pregnancy news, but we always like to discuss names. Plus there will be plenty of babies babies babies coming from everywhere soon, and we have to state/stake (I never know how that saying goes) our claim.
A girl (yeah right!) would be Emily Therese - Emily is Phil's favorite girl's name and Therese would be after his grandmother and of course, St. Therese Martin. If we have another boy (most definitely!) would be Theodore Kane - We both just love the nickname Teddy and Kane is my mom's maiden name.
We also decided that we won't find out the sex and I will have an epidural. OK enough planning, God's already cracking up, and I'm not even with child.
What is the deal with everyone hating on February? It's a lovely short month, filled with holidays like Ground hog's Day, Valentine's Day, Mardi Gras, Lincoln's bday, Washington's bday, John-Paul and my birthday (everyone celebrates that, right?) and we get a whole week off of school for our February Vacation. And guess what comes at the end of February? March! Spring is right around the corner! Cheer up you winter whiners!
Have a wonderful weekend - ours is off to a great start as the high school has cancelled school today due to the impending blizzard. But our kids have a half day, so Phil and I will be taking Xander to Mass and then the gym and then out for brunch. Yay!
