A real vacation, ahhh...

Yes I should be in the bed now, but when I think about the amount of sleep I am planning on getting over the next 5 days, I really don't care right now! We are leaving in the morning for New Orleans, where we will get on board the Carnival Fantasy until Monday! We will be in Cozumel on Saturday. This will be my 4th cruise, and Garrett's third, so we have cruised before and know what to expect, but this one will be very different than the ones before! Our last "real" vacation was to Gatlinburg with a large group of friends right after I found out I was pregnant with Paige (December 2005). Our last cruise was December 2004 with that same group of friends, before any of us had kids! Now we all have at least one or one on the way! Paige will not be going on this trip with us, it will be our first time away from each other for more than one night. I had been begging Garrett for a "just us" trip for a few months, and the cruise was his idea. We are very excited, and a little sad about leaving our little munchkin, but we know that we both really need this vacation. I think she will be fine, she loves to stay with her grandparents and aunties, I am just a little worried about the amount of time, that she may not understand how long we are going to be gone. But her Bear Bear made her a paper chain to help her count down the days until Mommy and Daddy get home, so I think that will help a lot. I have been excited about this for awhile, but now that it is right upon me, I honestly think I am not going to know what to do with myself! I plan on doing a whole lot of nothing, but I realize now that I am not used to that at all! I hope I don't get bored! There will be no cooking, cleaning, worrying about what to eat, wear, no potty training or whining! ha! No toys all over the place! I can do whatever I want to do! SLEEP REALLY REALLY LATE! That is what I am most looking forward to! Sad, huh? I want to relax, but if I get bored I might think too much about how I miss my little stinker and my busy mommy life at home! But maybe not! I guess we will see! I have a book that my daddy lended me to read, and an Eeyore needlepoint that Paige wanted me to make for her. Two things I like or would like to do, but never have time! I guess I will wrap up and hopefully go to bed soon!

Paige's first haircut



Paige finally got her hair cut today. Mommy finally made herself do it! She was very excited at first but once she got in the chair was not very happy. I didn't get much video because she wanted me to hold both of her hands, and she just looked down most of the time. I tried to show her the animals on her cape but she didn't really care! She just got a trim and we saved some in a ziplock bag. She remembered that part, because she told her daddy and Bear Bear that "they cut it and put it in a bag." They gave her a blue sucker afterwards, and she is still sporting her blue moustache.



Here are the videos, I didn't know videos took forever to upload!

Showing off her new "do" afterwards! Her Uncle Chris will probably still say she has a mullet!

Another funny one from my silly girl

I could blog every day with something funny Paige said. This winter her skin has been really dry and itchy, and she has been scratching all over lately. She was getting out of the tub tonight and her daddy came into the bathroom with the phone, he was talking to his grandmother. Paige wanted to talk, so he put it on speakerphone and held it up to her. She said "Hey grandmama!" and grandmama said "Whatcha doin?" and Paige said just as plain as day "scratchin' myself!" Her mommy and daddy nearly died!

A girl will do anything for a great deal on shoes!!


Okay, so I heard that Target was having a great sale on shoes! I worked today, and usually I work until 7 p.m. but things were really slow so I left about 6:15. Well I needed to buy some deodorant, and I could have just gone across the street to the CVS or something, but no, I decided to drive all the way to Target so I could look at the shoes before they got really picked over! Why doesn't my husband understand this!? Honestly, they were already pretty picked over, but I did find Paige 2 pairs of really cute shoes for only $3.75 a pair! Didn't find anything for me, but I have more fun buying for her than me anyway. I even managed to remember the little odds and ends that I needed to get at the store and got them too! Usually I can't think of it all and I'm too hardheaded to make myself a list! Anyway, I brought the shoes home and Paige loved them! She especially loves the sparkly bronze ones, they have some growing room. She's growing so fast, this is the way to buy shoes for her because she doesn't wear them long! And since it was 30 degrees outside, I just had to stop at Starbucks since it's so close to Target and get me a latte! Once again, why doesn't my husband understand this!? Ha!

Let's try adding a picture again!

It did right this time! This is Paige and her cousin Maddie playing at Paw Paw's surprise 60th birthday party this past weekend. They are about 4 months apart in age, and play so well together!

Okay, I'll try it!

I have had many requests to start blogging, and looking at all my friends' blogs, I feel like mine will be not so interesting, but I will try! I will never be as good as Bear Bear with her 4 (yes, four) cute blogs! I named it Mommy's house, because that is what Paige calls our house. It's not Paige's house, or Daddy's house, or our house, not even Roscoe's house. For some reason it is Mommy's house! And even though we really don't spend a whole lot of time here, that was all I could think of at the moment! Maybe I'll think of something cuter later! I will hopefully figure out how to add some pictures when I finish typing!



Probably all I will blog about are the cute things that Paige says. I always say that I wish I was writing down all the funny things she says so I can remember them, so maybe this can be my way of writing them down! Tonight we had a get-together with friends and we played a little Rock Band. Paige got to play some too, she loved the drums, microphone, and "bootar" (guitar).

We got in the car to go home, it was pretty late, and she said very sadly, "I don't want to go home, I want to do more band." Garrett and I just laughed and he said,"How sad Mama!" Then we asked her if we could be in her band and she said yes. Then it turned into this,"and Man-Man, and Allison, and Madison, and Cole, and Brandy, and Daniel, and Stacy, and Paw Paw, and Bear Bear, and Erin, and Chris......." and on and on. She is so silly. Then she told me and Garrett that we could play the "bootar" and she would sing. Her Paw Paw will be proud. Well the computer is acting crazy, I'll add pictures later!
