The 5 Love Languages

I just finished reading The Five Love Languages by Dr. Gary Chapman. This book has been around for awhile, so perhaps many of you have read it. It was such a good, fun book and I highly recommend it to anyone who is married, has been married, dreams of marriage, wishes they weren't married, etc. It was definitely worth my time.

Other things I'm reading:

  • The Bernstein Bears and the Old Spooky Tree
  • The Cat in the Hat
  • Yertle the Turtle
  • C is for Clown
  • Farley Uses His Nose
  • I Love Colors
  • Frog and Toad
  • Come back, Amelia Bedilia!

Actually, its a GIRL...

Poor Libby. Today at the grocery store she got called a boy not once, not twice, but three times. One of the incidences was especially painful...
Kroger Patron: "What a handsome little dude you got there! Look at him in that shopping cart...are you protectin' mommy? I know how it is, I got a little boy myself...."

Natalie: "Uh, ha ha ha, yeah, ha ha..."
Drop dead...this is my sweet little princess....
Folks, take a closer look at the pink and purple pants! I am not so fashion forward as to put pink on a baby boy! Okay, so she doesn't have a bow in her hair...she rips them out....sniff, sniff.
I've decided that anytime I exit the house from here on out, I am putting that girl in ruffles, frills, bows, nylons, lipstick....whatever it takes!!!!

For Christmas, Libby got this cute little rocking horse from her grammy. The girl loves her horsey. She sit and rocks, she stands and rocks, she falls off, over, rides sidesaddle, you name it. One of the few commands she understands is: "Libby, go ride your horsey!"
I love this little cowgirl.

Uncle Spencer in NC

Eric's brother Spencer just returned from a mission in Italy a few weeks ago. Since we couldn't all go out to Seattle to see him, we got him a ticket to come see us in Durham. Events included chowing at the Q Shack (where we take anyone who comes to see us), touring Duke campus, a Duke BB game in Cameron, gelato, Chuck E. Cheese's, and an extremely delicious Italian meal whipped up for us by Spencer.
The fam had a great time with Spence, and we hope he had a good time with us. Thanks for visiting!
