Party People!!!
Oh, and everyone else, of course...

Guess what! Another baby has graced the world! Welcome baby Gavin. If you would like to see him, step on over to Jillian's page, and check him out. He's a little guy, if you ask me! I'm eagerly awaiting more pics of him, and the exciting story of how he came into the world! Yaaa for Jillian and Gavin! I'm only a little ticked that he came early...just a little....

Yesterday my mom came to hang out with me. She actually came to watch the kids so I could go to a church meeting, isn't she so cool! Of course, then the meeting got cancelled, and boy did I feel bad that she came all that way for nothing. However, I don't think it was really for nothing, b/c we got to spend the day together, and I LOVE hanging out with my mommy! I sure do love her! We shopped, which is what we do best together, I think. Of course, with TJ wanting to run everywhere, and Taryn always getting hungry in public, I didn't actually get to shop with her most of the time, but...Still, I had fun. I hope she did, too. I always get sad when she leaves. I'm not sure why, exactly, but I do. I'll be going to her house in a couple of weeks for a birthday party for a friend, and I'll get to check out her new pool. She was SO burnt, it was kinda funny! She wore a red shirt, and you couldn't really tell where it ended and she began!

Oh, oh, oh! Surely this is not as exciting to you as it is to me, but...I got the new Harry Potter book! Okay, I checked it out from the library. I didn't think I'd be able to find one so soon after it came out, but I did. I'm so excited! While I was out last night (I did still go out by myself while my mom was here...it was kinda nice), I went to Books-a-Million and had some coffee and just read some of the first chapter of the book. It was so nice just to be able to sit and read a book and not have to worry about chasing TJ, or him wanting me to read him one of his books! Anyway, I was hooked, but not willing to spend $30 to have it. So, I went to the library, and viola! I found it! I can't promise that my posts will be as frequent for a couple of weeks, b/c I may be off reading this awesome book! If you've never read Harry Potter, you really should check it out. It's not really my thing, these kind of books, but I tried the first one while I was teaching, just to see what it was like to tell my kids. However, I was hooked immediately, and would fiend for the next book as I finished each one. I have been eagerly awaiting the arrival of this one. I'm so glad I found it for free!

Just wanted you to see how much Taryn has grown:

Oh, and this one's for you, Karlababble:

Have a great day! I'll talk to you later!

    Glad you spent some great time with your mom. It's so nice that she came down so you could have some free time.

    I haven't read one Harry Potter Book and now maybe after this post I will.

    The pictures are so cute.

    She is so cute in her little pink dress. I want a girl I can dress up in cutesy outfits! But I don't think I want to go through childbirth again, especially with only a 50-50 shot at coming out of it with a girl. Maybe I'll just dress my son up in girly clothes in order to satisfy my need to play dress-up-dolly. :)
