Toupee Tuesday

So what has been going on the past week or so? Well, we've been busy, busy busy. :) We went for our ultrasound on Friday and found out we are having another girl! Yay! I am so thrilled for Addy to have a sister!!

My husband Will came up with an idea to have Toupee Tuesday, so here it is:

Haha, makes me laugh every time!!!

So, this is not as easy as I thought. The whole blog thing. I think of all these good ideas during the day while I'm at work, then, by the time I come home I'm exhausted and can't think straight, let alone write a blog. :) I will have to work on this.

So the other day I was thinking about one of my highschool friends Bri. We used to work at Paper Warehouse together and we would hang out alot during highschool. While working at Paper Warehouse we found a giant stuffed dog in the back that was going to be thrown away. So, we took it. I couldn't find a picture of it, so this is as close as I could get:

We called him Pedro the dog. We would ride around in my '88 oldsmobile with the windows down and Pedro hanging his head out the back seat. With this song blasting from my stereo:

*Disclaimer- I have never seen this music video before.

Anyway, it was awesome. The looks we would get were priceless.

Mowing the Lawn

I work 9 hour days 4 days out of the week and than get half a day, usually on Wednesdays. I don't pick Addy up from daycare until 3:30 because that way I don't interrupt her nap time/ lunch time. So today I decided to help out my hubby who had been gone all last week on a missions trip. He was pretty tired this morning and has to work all week as well.

I decided to mow the lawn (at least the front yard) :). So, I got the lawn mower out and started going to town. Five minutes later this is what pulls up to my neighbor's house...

She hires 2 guys to come and mow her lawn. They have a push mower, and a John Deere lawn mower. Not only can you sit on this one, but you can also stand. Really? I mean, come on, our lawns are really not that big.

So the 2 guys get out and the one that gets on the John Deere mower waves at me with this smile ( or should I say smirk?) on his face. I wave back as my prego belly and I keep pushing away at the lawn. I look over not more than 5 minutes later, and he had already mowed her lawn and was putting his mower back on the trailer. I was not even half way done with our lawn. They then proceeded to get these blower things that blow the grass away, and started to blow it in my driveway... what? Unbelievable. When I finally finished I ran in to get this picture, just as they were driving away. I was actually laughing to myself practically the whole time I was mowing. :)

Ham Bone...

Happy Monday! I thought we could all use a pick-me-up on a Monday. Will just came back from a week out in New Mexico and he was soo excited to show me this video. This seems like the type of person that would some how be related to me....

Hope this made you laugh like it did me!

Mmm Spaghetti!!

We had spaghetti the other night and Addy loved it! This was just too classic...

We actually never cleaned it up, it's stained on her skin now. :)

Nooo.. we wouldn't do that...

Love that smile!

Visiting my grandparents

This weekend I was able to visit my grandparents. We had such a good time! I don't get to see them that often, so it was a special time. Addy warmed right up to them! She even started calling them 'Great grandpa" and "Great Grandma".

My brother and I used to stay with my grandparents 2 weeks out of the summer. I understand now why my parents did that. :) My grandma had a garden behind her house and I always remember picking raspberries... mmm they were so good.  My grandparents are both awesome examples of Christ. I also remember when I would get up early at their house, I would hear them talking in the kitchen so I would go up there and they would be reading the Bible and praying, so I would sit with them. I would kind of get bored because it seemed like they prayed forever. But I understand now that they are prayer warriors. They are such a blessing to me.

Here is Grandpa playing the Harmonica for Addy. She wasn't sure what to think of it. He played "Jesus loves me".

We also got to see my nephew, Anthony's last soccer game. Shane and Addy had fun rooting for him!:)

Here's Anthony, the star player!!

With grandpa!! :)

It was a fun weekend, and had fun spending time with family.

Paul Todd time!

My brother, TJ is the funniest person I know. About 2 years back he made Will and I a DVD full of channel surfing. It was the most hilarous thing I've seen. If you ever want to watch it you'll have to let me know. Anyway, I thought it would be appropriate to post a Paul Todd song. This one is special because it has Paul Todd Jr. I was disappointed that he didn't have Paul Todd's hair,though.

and I decided to post a cute picture of my little Addy. Love her.

"Whaley Will"

Will and I both work close to each other so we get to carpool together most days. Today we went to the doctors during our lunch for our routine check up for the baby. Everything looks good, heartbeat and all! We will get an ultrasound in 4 weeks. :) Can't wait

When I was dropping Will off he saw someone he knew named John. So he said. "John! John! Jiggly John!" I starting laughing, it was funny. So then we came up with one for Meesa (which is my nickname). It went like this, "Meesa! Meesa! Squishy Meesa!" hahaha! Which was really funny because the doctors had to squish my tummy to hear the heartbeat. So then I, being as witty as I am, (not) said, "Will! Will! Whaley, Will!" Wow. Good times. It's the little things in life. :)

So, here we are. The Mitchell family. I've been kicking around the idea of blogging for a long time now, so I decided to go for it. Why not? Let me first introduce ourselves.

Here's Will...
I'm not really sure what he's hanging on to, but it makes me laugh every time.

Here's Adelynn..
