Every now and then I get the urge to I made the kids each a hat this past week. Last night I made one for Emmie out of "leftovers" - it's three colors that don't go altogether perfectly, but cute. When I gave it to her this morning she took one look at it and said, "Oh, Momma! Did you make me my 'nother clown hat?" (It looks to her like a dress-up clown hat she has.) Then she went and found the clown hat and wore them simultaneously. So flattering to my ego.

Emmie - "I don't like Bob (VeggieTales Bob) because he's too serious. I like Larry because he's silly."

I overheard Riley telling my mom about our Sundays and it went something like this, "Well, we go to church and I go to my class and then get picked up and go to big church then we go home and eat some lunch and then my mom lies down on the floor...or the couch..." That's about accurate these days!

I made them an Advent Calendar (if I've already blogged that, oh well, I can't remember anything lately) and it's been a good way to stave off the "how many days till Christmas" thing because they can just go count. We put up the fake tree, and it's already demolished - stuff hanging all askew because Emmie constantly rearranges it. I briefly thought about taking everything off and redoing it (a Monk moment) but decided not to add one more thing to the list of "Reasons Why My Mom's a Freak" that they will have when they are older (you know it's going to happen - we'll be sitting around at Christmas in fifteen or twenty years and they'll be remembering all the weird things I ever did [I know because we do it to my mom - sorry mom] - well, I decided not to make this one of them.)

On top of morning sickness I now have bronchitis, so I cough and then throw up. It's really fun. It makes eating jello a whole new treat. There are some things you never want to eat again once you've seen them come back up. Sorry for the graphic ending to this little update...just making you part of my world.

Riley wants to name one baby "Sally" and Emmie wants the other to be "Shrek". Logan (the voice of reason) said, "no, I want them to have normal names. And not too likey-like 'cause they'll get mixed up."
