Is it Spring?

<--- we took an early morning walk to Miss Opal's and the post office. Riley LOVES the wagon, even more than before!

<---playing outside this afternoon. The backyard is a mud pit, so it was a little messy, but worth it.

<---I dont keep her locked in the backyard...she was watching the kids play baseball in the back. She looks like a little inmate though...

Not much else going on here. I filed our taxes tonight. For someone that is pretty detail oriented, this is hard for me. I have to check. And re-check, and then check again. It was a half hour process, turned into a 3 day event. But they are sent in, so hopefully we will be seeing that return soon!

I felt the baby kick this afternoon. It was a good solid movement, that I could feel on the outside of my belly. Love that feeling. Now if we can just be patient till the 20th to find out what it is! Its so strange to think that this wasnt an option for people years ago. They had to wait the whole 9 months, and I get antsy waiting a whole 4!

I napped a lot today. Riley took about a three and a half hour nap, and so did I. I also slept when she went down for the night, until Derrick got home. I have had this nagging headache all day and cant seem to get rid of it. I was hoping to get a little scrapping done, but think I will be laying back down instead.

I guess thats all the updates..... Where are the comments??

Here is the pic I am talking about in my previous post... I kid you not, this is what my child looked like...


We can put ADORABLE pigtails in Riley's hair. They are so stinking cute. The minute she lays down for a nap, she takes them out. Not so cute. She got up today, looking like a little excaped convict. She reminded me of those pictures of Nick Nolte (I think thats who it is) when he had his mug shot done. Hair was everythere. By the end of the night, she looked like one of those bedraggled kids that you see on COPS, cause their parents are fighting, and the cops are having to hold the kids. Sad. But she is ours, wouldnt change it.

We didnt do much today. Went to Menards early this morning to get some stuff for the duct work for under the house. It was considerably more then Derrick "guess-timated". It wasnt too bad, he was thinking cheaper though. He wasnt going to buy the vent covers until I pointed out that he would have gaping holes in the floor when he rips out the door between the new room and the kitchen next week. Gaping holes and our child are not a good combination. We already have to go through the trash before we take it out, cause she throws EVERYTHING away. Shoes, socks, jeans. Anything she can fit in there.

Well thats it I guess. There is a new show on tonight that is supposed to have the Dukes of Hazzard before they were the Dukes of Hazzard. Kind of like Smallville. Derrick is sooooo excited. I am not. I think I will scrapbook....
