9, 10, 11

So, last week, three of my five gorgeous nieces had their birthdays.

Wednesday was Hannah's and believe it or not she is 11 years old and in middle school. This is unfortunately an older picture of Hannah, but you gotta do what you gotta do, right?

Aubrie's 10th birthday was on Thursday. She is growing up so fast.

Her one year younger sister, Emily celebrated her 9th birthday on Thursday as well!

Happy Birthday, Girls!

Bun In The Oven...

Guess What?

I am not pregnant!

That's not exactly surprising but the thought does make me happy. But, there are pregnant women everywhere. Three women who frequent playgroup all happen to be pregnant and due in the spring. This is a little scary for me, because pregnancy always seems to be contagious. Thankfully, non of my sisters or sisters in law happen to be pregnant. That would certainly be the kiss of death for my pregnancy free desires. I just can't seem to be pregnant on my own. So, I'll cross my fingers and keep my distance. Perhaps I'll take the pregnancy wave after next. Or the one after that. Maybe 12-18 months from now. Having two in close succession and one as attached as can be has taught me that there is only so much I can handle. Me being Fertile Myrtle, I guess we'll see how well that plan goes!

Maybe I'll have to wear that costume when the time comes, or have Nate wear this:

How ridiculous can these costumes be?

To all those pregger ladies, have a wonderful next several months. I will happily and gratefully watch from the side!

I Feel Bad That I Hadn't Done This Sooner!

I forgot my obligatory Happy Birthday wishes to my eldest nephew. Yes, Stephen turned (gasp!) 14 years old on August 26th. It's really hard to believe! I am an aunt to a high schooler. I suppose that it should make me feel really old, but I did become an aunt as a fifth grader! I think I was the first in my class. I suppose that is one of the things many people don't experience. It is one of the beauties of being a large family with some wide age groups.

I wish him all the best for his fifteenth year. I am sure in a blink of an eye, he'll be driving, and then leaving for college. Scary thought, but it is really just around the corner.

While I am handing out birthday wishes, Thursday was Clara's 3rd. She is such a funny little elfin girl. I love you!

Happy Birthday from Ye Olde Auntie Kathryn! I love you both!

I have a confession....

I know, it's ben almost a month since I have done a blog post! I very nearly did several times! Haha...

My confession is: I love The Wiggles!

My sister's kids used to watch the videos and I didn't mind them too much. But, a couple weeks ago, my mom bought a couple DVDs for the girls and we have watched them and watched them and watched them. One is of a live show that the did and they are so funny teasing each other and just being silly.

Here's a video of my favorite song:

I even googled them and read about them on Wikipedia. Three of the original four met in school while studying early childhood education and for a project, they thought they could make a rock band for kids. They enlisted a friend of Anthony's (the blue guy) that was in a band with him in the 80s and together they became The Wiggles. That guy, Jeff (in purple) is Cecily's favorite. She says he is a "silly boy." Their songs are super catchy and it is not mind numbing to watch like some other kid stuff.

I am really into it, I guess! It doesn't hurt that I have had a longtime crush on Anthony. Who says you can't get eye candy watching kids programming?

The kids like it too, it's not just me, really!

There's my dignity, enjoy it!
