People are often unreasonable and self-centered. Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives. Be kind anyway.
If you are honest, people may cheat you. Be honest anyway.
If you find happiness, people may be jealous. Be happy anyway.
The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway.
Give the world your best and it may never be enough. Give your best anyway.
For you see, in the end, it is between you and God. It never was between you and them anyway.

Funny girls

Remember Sophie's hat fetish? Here's another hat. They are baby pantaloons. She looks like a wrestler.
She also has a thing for shoes. I love how she not only got them on the wrong feet but also one is backwards.
Sophie also cannot function without her bears and blanky (not pictured as it was being washed). She sleeps with all of them and if she wakes in the middle of the night all of them are in tow when she comes into our bedroom. Me and my girls have been sick going on 3 weeks now. Sophie always gets high fevers when she is sick so here she is just chillin' with "da poo" and bear. So funny to me that Pooh is as big as she is.
I love this picture of Regan. She looks so beautiful. She is pretty much over being sick. Still has a little cough, but is doing alright. She says the funniest things sometimes!! Yesterday I was laying on the couch while she was playing on the floor with her bucket. She starts "stirring" in her bucket and says, "Mama, I'm gonna make you some yucka, kucka-monkey cookies. It will help you feel so much better!" Hahahahahaha........ When the girls hair isn't done and they don't want me to do it, I tell them that they need to let me do their hair so they don't look like a little orphan. One night in the bathtub Regan says to Sophie, "You have a crazy little orphan bum Sophie!". HHhahHAHhahHAHhah........she kills me!

On Saturday I went to a warehouse full of great deals and got this carpet to cover our living room for $10! Love it. Our floors before were pretty much cement with a couple pink fibers covering it. Having this is like a lush garden of softness...for only $10!! Hooray for me. I also got some freakin' awesome mirrors for $5 each! Still not helping me to get better though. I think my cold has turned into a sinus infection. Peace out!

Hang in there girl! A little MORE time and you guys will be feeling better. We have had some different cold symptoms for like 4 weeks I think! We feel good, there is just a scratchy throat here, one cough a day, small things that won't let go. GREAT DEALS!!! I wish I were there. I got some cute clothes at DI, I will have to put on an outfit and take a pic for ya!

Teanne said...

I love the pics of your daughter wearing the pantaloons and the shoes on backwards! That is so funny. I can just picture her going around the house putting anything she think resembles a hat on her head! haha
And that "crazy little orphan bum" is hilarious.
I hope you get feeling better soon. With two girls to keep you laughing- that's gotta help. :)

KaNdRa and JaReD said...

I am so sorry, I understand the being sick and it is no fun. We have been sick I think more weeks out of this winter than not sick. It is so hard to take care of kids when you are sick, let alone them being sick as well. That little Regan is such a crack up! Loved the orphan bum quote!

Wardleclan said...

OKAY... what did you do to get your kids better? Any special treatments??? We are struggling at my house! I have had this caugh for going on 2 months and my kids now for a bout a week have had this horrible cough and are now sounding so congested like I did... I htink mine is a sinus infection as well... what can I do... I want my kids to get better so bad!

Dawna Greer said...

The pictures and stories of the girls are hilarious. Thanks for sharing. I know with all of you sick now, that its probably not fun must of the time but its good that they can make you laugh sometimes--good medicine. Very nice carpet, it'll be warmer for them and maybe help them get over their sickness.

Catherine said...

I love your carpet. And I love you! I feel so lucky that I get to see you and your girls several times a week, while everyone else just hears the great stories. I'm so glad we had a girls night tonight. It was so awesome!
