Miss Addy tried to show me a swimming trick in the bathtub like sissy had learned. The trick was putting your face under water! Well....when you slip and fall face first into the side of the tub, it doesn't end so well.

Yesterday I said "Lily, I am 6 months older than Daddy and we're friends!"
She said, "You're not friends, you're married!!!!

Well several friends (actually tons of friends & family) came out that Saturday, June 14, 2003 to help us move.
Now I should let you in on a few things:
1. We didn't know if we were having a boy or girl, yes we're one of THOSE couples!!
2. We told no one, I repeat, NO ONE what names we had picked out.
Our friends, Paige & Jared Whitehead, showed up to help us move. And Paige walked up immediately and handed DJ and I a square terracotta pot, and there was 1 green sprig in it. No flower, just a green sprig. She said "here's your house warming gift, it's actually a Lily and it should bloom any day now!"
I about dropped the terracotta pot on her toe. Damon just stared at me. I stared at him. I think we said thank you, I don't remember!
After everyone had left, the first thing he said to me was "you told her our girl name!" "NO!!! No I didn't Damon, I promise!" And I really hadn't told her.
We both sat on the couch a little freaked out. We knew at that moment we were having a girl. Lily Alana arrived at 2:17 AM Tuesday morning, and "the Lily" bloomed while we were at the hospital! My mom planted the lily for me in my yard and we take a picture of our "Lily's"every year!

Last night leaving church our almost 5 year old, Lily, (acts more like 13) was getting in some big time sassy trouble!! We were in the car and she had already worked her way into 2 spankings, and was working on another when her father piped in and said "Lily you're about to be up to three spankings, I suggest you shut your mouth, okay?" She got quiet and then the little 2 year old parrot, Addy, says "Shut mouth sissy, k? Shut mouth sissy, k? (yelling) SISSY, shut mouth, k?".
I didn't have a cracker to shove in her mouth!!!!!

KJ: Hi, what's your name?
Lily: Shawlay (Lily doesn't use normal names, EVER!)
KJ: Oh, hi Shawlay, have you been at church?
Lily: Yeah with my boyfriend.
KJ: Oh really?? You have a boyfriend?
Lily: Yeah he wants to be my husband. He is going to spend the night at my house tonight.
KJ: REALLY? Well boyfriends usually don't spend the night UNTIL they are husbands!
Lily: No, my mom said it was okay.
KJ: I don't think she did! I know your mom and she wouldn't say yes to that! How old is he anyway?
KJ: BARBIE TIME OVER!!!
Barbie's head almost snaps off as I try to shove it into that Rubbermaid tub under the bed
Lily: Mom I want to play more.
On a side note: ALL barbies are being donated to the Goodwill this weekend!!!!
