Chaos, Craziness, and Laughs

The reality is setting in.  We are about to buy a house.  Right before Christmas.


We have trips planned around Thanksgiving.  There is holiday shopping to be done.  Packing and unpacking.  Cleaning.  Wrapping presents.  Meal planning.

Two years ago this wouldn't have phased me but now I have Abby.  Or, as I sometimes like to call her, Hurricane Abby.

On top of all the chaos, we only have one car.  About a month (or two) back a drunk driver hit Dan's truck and totaled it.  We didn't replace it because we were looking for a house.

So, it's hectic here and some days we're trapped inside.  The craziness is wearing off on Abby, who for some reason now calls me 'Bob' or 'Bobby'.  She refuses to say 'Mommy' and laughs every time I correct which leads me to believe that for some reason I remind her of a 'Bob'.  See, I knew some day I would be paid back for calling my mom 'Vagina' instead of 'Virginia'.  I'm sure she's laughing right now!

In addition to renaming me, Abby has been making the most of her days by acting like a loony bird.

She has even debuted a new facial expression which my sister informed me is a face that I make.

Great look, huh?  I really hope that's not a face I make often!  I also wish someone would have told me sooner so I could make a conscious effort to never make that face in public!


  1. I love this age!! My daughter makes a horrible face that I'm also told I make. I still don't believe it.

  2. Haha! She's the best. I know her and KLV would get along, they are both goofballs. Good luck on the home buying process. That's a lot of work but I'm sure you guys wouldn't do it if you didn't find a great new home. Also thanks for your comment on my blog today. Super Sweet Kasey! Also a few pics on my sidebar are new. I got a new camera and have playing wanna be photographer.

  3. Love the face she is making!! You guys are moving right before Christmas? So are we lol we move the sucks to have to wait to even decorate til we get settled in! If we ever do hahah! I hope you guys find a great place! Good Luck packing...I started today in the kitchen and Vincent took most of the stuff out of the box...I guess I need to be quicker lol or pack when he is asleep! :) Hope you have a great week!!

  4. Hey Bob (ha!) Little Chick does a face also. They are so silly! I wish you well with the house and all the chaos you will be dealing with. Just take it one thing at a time and before you know it you will be settled. Have a great week my friend!

  5. That face would look quite different on an adult. It's amazing the things little ones can get away with and we just call it cute! ; )
