So we have been enjoying some Nana and Poppy time over the last week which is always a treat. While we will get to see Nana again on Friday, Poppy had to fly back to Albuquerque yesterday. Ellie and Luke were pretty bummed, so to try and make the good-bye a little easier, he treated them to the best the BP station could offer-M&M's and Tootsie Roll pops. It definitely helped ease the separation. When we got in the house, I made them sit in one spot on the kitchen floor and told them not to move or they would never see their suckers again. I feel like I am pretty relaxed about most messes, but stickiness makes me kind of crazy.
Andrew has all of a sudden reached the "I will grab anything that I can get my hands on" phase. I kind of forgot and before I realized it, this happened-
Oh well, it made for some cute pictures.
We really enjoyed the beautiful day on Saturday!! Ellie and Luke have recently been into playing "hopsquatch". I'm not really sure where they learned it, but they really get into it-especially the hopping on one foot. And yes, Luke is in his underwear. Redneck, I know. Good thing we don't have any neighbors yet.
We're excited about football season around here. I am going to try to make it to Auburn at least once while I still have sisters in school there. From what I hear, they are living in college luxury. Sarah has a pool table and flat screen at her house. Quite a step up from my teeny tiny college dorm room. (Although I wouldn't trade those days for anything-fun times-quick shout out to all my rooomies-girls, you know who you are:)) Anyway, I plan on taking full advantage of the college lusciousness! I have recently taught Ellie and Luke the Auburn fight song. They love it! Steven and I had this deal before we had children, that if we had a girl I would be allowed to sway her to be an Auburn fan and the boys would be his to brainwash into pulling for the Dawgs. So far, I have not held up my end of the bargain...
