September is a busy month

of celebrating!

We have celebrated Meg and Andrew's anniversary, my mom and dad's anniversary, and our anniversary!

And we have celebrated Kenny turning the big 3-0!

Kenny left the day of his birthday to go learn how to be a commercial airline pilot, so we celebrated a little early. We did have a nice dinner with our neighbors the day before.  However, before Kenny left, he did get to have a little lunch.  We lit candles, and Daisy and I sang. 

 Nothing says birthday like a good looking salad... (Cookies were made and consumed, just not photographed).
We will celebrate our anniversary when Kenny returns, but to help me celebrate,  I bought a couple of things for Baby V's room. 
Her room will be grey and yellow with chevron patterns everywhere!  The little owl is a rattle.

Sorry for the poor quality of pictures.  They are from my phone.  Daisy has been really sick the past couple of days (like at the vet every day, got a new bed because of puking all over it, and now we don't have a living room rug anymore kind of sick), so she didn't notice the owls for a couple of days.  Last night, though, she found them and started barking at them. It was a "where did you come from" kind of bark.  Then she ran. 

Hope your September has been great!

Quotes from school

This is a blog post of "Kids Say the Darndest Thungs"

I never announced to my students that I am pregnant, so now that the baby is making herself known, the kids are having interesting reactions.

"Miss, you're pregnant? I just thought you'd let yourself go!"

Child comes up to me and whispers, "Miss, are your pregnant?"
I respond, "Yes."
Child turns around to her friend and shouts, "I told you!"

Child points to my belly and says, "Is there a baby in there?"
I respond, "we hope!"

"Miss, you're pregnant? My brother is having a baby, too!"
"Really, that is exciting,"
"yeah. He is 16."
Awkward silence.
"Well, I'm sure it will be fun to be an uncle!"

Best response:
One of my best students from two years ago ran up to me and squeezed me, so I said, "Be careful of the baby!"
She screamed and said, "oh my goodness! You are going to be the best mom! You should name her after me!!"

So I guess word is out.

And the baby is....


Duke fan....


A lover of owls...

And a girl!

Kenny is really outnumbered now, but we can't wait to add this sweet girl to our family!
