Wow, this past weekend FLEW by! Thursday night, we went and had dinner at the Sansom's house. We got a new picture of Kaidi and Caroline together. ( I will have to add it when I get home) Caroline is starting to slowly catch up with Kaidi. She is still much smaller! :) Friday night we went and spent the night out at my aunt's place at Gantt. We invited Ronnie and Ashton out there to eat with us and had a good time of fellowship with them. Gregg, Kaidi and I all slept in Saturday morning till about 9:30 and then we got up, cleaned up after ourselves and headed in to Opp to see the lights that the electrician was putting up in our house. I had to take some stuff back to Lowe's and Home Depot so Miss Kaidi and me loaded up in the Jeep and headed to Dothan. She was such a good baby. I stopped by Babies R Us and picked up a few summer things for her since she was so sweet. HA! :) I had a gift card that I was just itching to use! :) Sunday morning we got up and went to church and after church we came home and took a 2 1/2 hour nap! :) That was SO nice! Then we headed to Gregg's Granny's house to surprise her for her birthday. Her birthday was Saturday so we decorated her kitchen and dining room while she was gone to Dothan and when she got home we surprised her with cake and chips!
The latest on our house is a BIG BRIGHT YELLOW DOOR! I let Gregg choose the door color, since I had picked everything else in the house, and I drove up and nearly croaked there in the seat of my Jeep!
Does it look like Big Bird or what? I am still not 100% sold on it but was open minded and said I would leave it for a week or two to see if the caution light would grow on me. Gregg is "selling" to me that it will look better once we get rockers and plants on the porch and all the focus isn't only on the BRIGHT YELLOW DOOR! So, we will see... I may be heading to the store to buy some burnt orange paint pretty soon! What's your opinion?? Don't worry, you will Not hurt my feelings if you tell me it's ugly and I will not hold it against you if you like it! :) Promise! haha!!!
They are installing my cabinets right this minute! I went and checked out some of them and really like them alot! My bar/island is HUGENORMOUS! (if that is a word) it seats 5 people comfortably! WOW! Whats the point in having the breakfast nook?? :) I like all the colors we have picked out so far. I was a little scared about the Dining Room at first because it looked Lime Green before it dried but now it is much prettier! :)
I have finally got Brayden and Kenadi's headstone taken care of. This was not an easy task. It is something that you just aren't suppose to do, so having to scroll the internet looking for "ideas" was just crazy to me. I found one that I liked and sketched it on my CAD program at work and sent it around for some estimates and finally got a price I could work with. We are having their picture etched on it. It is going to be polished black granite with a vase on each side. I think it is beautiful and cannot wait to get it ordered and installed to their grave. That just doesn't even seem right? Their grave. Just seems so... cold... When I think of it, I think of how they laid, side by side, in that casket. It's all too real to me. I try daily to just push it out of my mind so I don't dwell on it all day. Some days I feel it never happened, like they never happened. Some days it hits me as soon as my feet hit the floor in the morning or I wake up thinking about them and I can't shake them from my mind for nothing, the drive to work is depressing, I can't help but look through their pictures all day just to feel close to them and when I get home, I find myself in their room, tracing my fingers over the impressions of their feet and opening the bags of their locks of hair I have and feeling how soft their hair is and remembering back to kneeling beside their beds at night and kissing them and rubbing their hair out of their face. Oh, how I miss my twins. I miss the relationship I had with each one of them. They were both so special to me. I pray everday that I remember more of them every minute! Gregg and I are about to be going through a very tough time in the next couple of weeks. We have to pack, which in one way is exciting because we will be moving in to our new dream house but on the other side of things, it is going to be so hard, so hard packing up their stuff and not unpacking it when we get to our new house, leaving all the memories in that little blue block house that we have. It's heartbreaking to think about. Please be in prayer for us over the next couple of weeks as we make this transition. That it will be a time of happiness and joyful tears as we relive each memory with them as we pack. That we will be able to smile with our tears of sadness. It is going to be so difficult.
I hope you all have a wonderful week!
