Busy weekend. . .

Last weekend was so busy, but so much fun! My youngest sister, Abby, came in town Friday night and we got to hang out w/ the kids together on Saturday morning/afternoon. It was fun getting one on one time with her! Then Saturday afternoon Tra and I took Jack and Hayley to see The Wiggles LIVE! We really thought Jack would LOVE it b/c he is a huge Wiggles fan, but I think he thought the whole way there as we were talking about going to see the Wiggles that we were going to the Wiggles Play Center and was extremely disappointed when he was in a dark room expected to stay in a confined space w/ nothing to play with. : ) I ended up taking him out the last 20 minutes or so of the show b/c he was so fussy! Hayley loved it though. I totally messed up on our seats---I had us in the nosebleeds but thought we were going to be a lot lower---not sure how I made that mistake?? Anyway--Hayley's classic comment was when the Wiggles came out she sat there and squinted, looked at me and said, "You can't see the Wiggles' eyes!" In other words, "Nice seats, mom." Oh well. It was still fun. We got home, put them to bed and my mom and other sister Angie came to stay the night. We had some good family time on Sunday morning just hanging out and then I hosted a baby shower for one of my long-time friends (we've been friends since Kindergarten!) that afternoon. They've been wanting to have a baby for 3 years and little Joshua Ryan is FINALLY almost here! I'm so thrilled for them. Her sister, who has also been wanting a baby for a little longer than 3 years, found out 6 weeks after Tammi that she was pregnant too!! God is GOOD!


Hayley is turning 3 tomorrow, which is very hard to believe! So we have a fun day/weekend planned for our girl. I love this birthday b/c she knows what's going on and she is very excited! She has basically planned the majority of her party. All I had to do was go get the stuff and order the cake. It's a Dora party with a Rainbow cake (not sure where the rainbow cake idea came from, but whatever), and she wants everyone to wear party hats. : ) Party hats?? She certainly did not get that idea from me. (I'm not a hat person.) I like them on other people, just not myself. But I'll wear a party hat if it makes Hayley happy! : )


Lastly, It's very hard to believe I only have 14 weeks or so left before this baby gets here. (still assuming they'll induce a week early again) That doesn't seem like a very long time! This is an active little one---I get startled several times a day with random strong kicks! It tends to be when I'm carrying Jack, as if the baby is saying, "Do you not REMEMBER how little space there is in here??? Stop squishing me!!!!" We can't wait to see this little one!!
The Wiggles coming out on stage---Jack processing where we are The "new Greg" is named "Sam." It just wasn't the same w/o good ole Greg Wiggle!
Yay for sisters! I think Hayley got the same gene as Abby in height (I even had heels on!)

How much fun! I'm so glad you got some sister time. That's hilarious about Hayley not being able to see the Wiggles' eyes. I'm glad it was fun! I'm sorry we missed it this year.

Tell Hayley we will be there Saturday and I will wear a party hat as long as she wants me to. I make no promises for Little John. :)

What three beautiful sisters you all are. What a great picture! I can't believe you only have 14 weeks left. Man, time flys when we're all pregnant together.

What pretty girls! Glad the Wiggles was fun! I think Courtney is bringing Jack to the party on Saturday and he is sure excited! Hat? maybe...
Happy birthday to Hayley!
Hugs!

I wish we could be there at Hayley's party! I would love to put on a party hat! I love that she has ideas about what she wants like a rainbow cake and hats.

I had a dream last night that my girl name for this baby was Layla Ali. Cody and I were talking today about Cashious Clay, Muhammad(?) or Joe Frazier Walton because I think this kid boy or girl is going to be a fighter. Always punching and kicking!
