long time...no post...

yes, it has been an extremely long time since i felt inspired to post about our extremely crazy life...but today felt like a good day to shout from the rooftops that -

DADDY (aka my husband) IS COMING HOME TODAY FOR A LONG TIME!!!!!!!

after spending most of the summer of 2009 apart, we finally have our hero back! well, technically he's not back yet - but he's in the air!!!!! his girls could not be more excited...and i'm definitely included in that bunch!!!!!
daddy is the missing piece on a lot of days...and i think we'll all feel a bit more complete with him home...and of course, his "honey do" list has gotten quite large!!! we have SO much to do before this baby comes in just a couple of weeks...and yes, i did just type that!!! AAAAAHHHHHGGGG!!

we have been super busy around here getting used to being back in school, taking on projects as room mom of both daughter's classrooms, painting furniture to be auctioned at FBCS fall carnival, going to OB appointments, growing a baby, fixing lunches, starting ballet, visiting with fabulous family, friends, and neighbors...

you know...

just living life. in the fast lane.

i don't know what i would do without all of mom and dayne's help...they definitely make this "single parenting" thing a bit easier!!! aunt cookie helps out too!

although life is quite busy...we are all QUITE happy!

while this cute couple went on a "date" last night...
this precious peanut and i...
hung out and did lots of girly girl things!!!! she wanted to put on makeup...and that is just what we did! lots of lip gloss was applied to those precious lips! she also wanted her hair in "pig tails" like ella! hmmm - that's a bit hard to do without the hair part...but we tried our best! could you just eat her with a spoon...yeah, i thought so too!!!!!!!!

after the beautification process was complete, we set out on her tricycle to deliver some friendship bread to the neighbors! all you could see from the doorway were her little sprouts sticking up...it was too cute for words! we made our way home just in time to welcome ella & grandpa back home!

i can't believe that my madeline is about to lose her spot as "our baby"...but no doubt, she isn't planning on giving up the cute factor any time soon! (neither is her sister for that matter...)

i go tomorrow for a "baby check"...so i will be reporting the details...we can hardly wait to meet this new member of the price family!!!!

Ok Merideth, now that you are back in the Port city, we must get together soon. I know it's wonderful to be back with grandparents and have the help. Good luck at your appointment!
