At the beginning of planning out Kelsey's wedding I could not sleep because I couldn't turn my brain off. I kept thinking of ideas and it was out of control. The same thing happened to me this week too. I had a rough sleeping week but I did get a lot of good ideas at that time. I would be trying to sleep and I would think of a good idea and I would get up and write it down and try to go back to sleep. The good news is I basically have it all worked out so I think I will start sleeping again. The bad news is Rachel isn't even in the country and won't be for several more weeks. The reason this is bad news is because they aren't even officially engaged yet and I'm trying to wait before I start spending money and working on it. It's impossible. I have managed to do a lot of work for basically free. I repainted a lot of the stuff from Kelsey's wedding. Trying to wait has forced me to be a little more organized which will save time and money. If I get an idea in my head I have to go to the store right then and get it started. Since that isn't an option I now have a master list with all of the stores and what I need to get at each store. I will try to do little inexpensive projects until it's official but we will see. I'm not very patient and especially with stuff like this. This will be good for me. Anyway I hope everything turns out as good as it is in my head.
The kids are good. When Corbin says things that I say I can't help but think it's funny. Any time I hear him say "dang it!" I think it's funny (maybe I shouldn't, oops). I also love it when he says "what the heck!" It kills me. Speaking of that it reminds me of a story. We busted out the Halloween decorations and Corbin wanted to move some Halloween candy from my decorative cansisters and put them into some other Halloween cup and I told him no. As we were having this conversation back and forth and I was explaining my reasoning and he said "that kills me." So funny. Corbin is so happy and obedient most of the time. He is a very good example to his sisters. I'm glad he's my oldest. He helps set the tone for the whole family. He will have a good life with his happy disposition I think. Corbin wakes up from a deep, deep sleep by rolling over and immediately saying "good morning mommy" in a chipper voice. Wow I don't even know how he does that. It's so cute.
We put our old dresser into the kids room, the problem with this is that this dresser is shorter and the drawers are much easier to open. Consequently Gabby gets into them all day and wants to change her clothes and underwear all day. It's so annoying. I have kind of put a stop to that. I'm okay with playing dress up but I am not okay with wearing 10 different outfits in one day. Uh uh. I love that Gabby loves to look pretty and is almost always cooperative when I fix her hair because she wants to be pretty. She's definitely a girly girl. I should probably buy her some fake jewelry for Christmas, she would probably love it. She is my little parrot and says anything and everything. She is becoming more cute and fun all the time. The older she gets the more I am able to get her to have better behavior and she has much fewer tantrums so that is nice. She loves when I read books to her and she loves playing with Corbin. She also loves many of her toys and I watched her play hide and go seek with her tiger the other day. Hilarious!
Piper is a handful. She can be very cute and funny. She is definitely opinionated and feisty. I think Gabby was my preparation for Piper. Piper isn't happy and content generally for very long. I think she gets bored very easily. Piper loves it when I take her on long bike rides. She loves fruit. She is smart. I don't know how to explain it but I can just tell she is really smart. She was so hard at church today that Scott had to take her home and put her to bed. She kept screaming and would not stop screaming no matter what I did. I think she is working on a tooth but man oh man! You know how I mentioned how she is smart, opinionated, and feisty well that being said she did not want to be at church today and she was letting the whole ward know it.
Well how's that for a super long blog post. Like you are surprised.
