So here's what's been happening in and around casa Butler these last few weeks:

* Isabella absolutely loves going to her little preschool. Her favorite class is music where they get to sing and shake bells and they get their hand stamped if they're good. She so proudly shows me her stamped little hand every time I pick her up. Her second favorite is art which usually involves paint, glitter and glue. Needless to say, her least favorite part of the day is nap time. And although she has actually taken a nap or two, she usually sits or lays quietly on her mat until snack time.

* Since this is his busiest time of the year, Scott's been working crazy long hours and weekends, which in turn is killing me. I so look forward to when he walks through the door after work and Isabella excitedly announces his arrival and instantly forgets I even exist. Here lately he's been taking care of bath and other nighttime duties which gives me a nice little break. We just keep reminding ourselves this craziness is only temporary and will be over in a couple of weeks.

* We joined forces with our neighbors and had a huge yard sale yesterday. I wish I would have taken a picture of what our garage looked like on Friday night. We had so much stuff in it it looked like it was ready to burst . And although our local newspaper messed up our ad twice, Christie made and posted so many signs, that the traffic we got was unbelievable. We sold about 90% of the stuff we had out, and what didn't sell went straight to Goodwill afterwards. I was so excited to get rid of a lot of the antiques I collected during our Louisville days. Apparently I am over antiques and very much into more modern furniture/decor.

* Finally, we do a have a bit of good news to share. Pending everything continues to go well, as of March 2008 the Butler family will have expanded by one. That's right, we're pregnant, about 14 1/2 weeks to be exact! This might explain to those of you who have been unfortunate enough to be around me lately why I have been such a useless and unmotivated grouch. If you happen to be one of those unfortunate people , please accept my deepest apologies. The good news is I'm actually starting to feel better and snap out of this "thing" I've been in for the last couple of months. I don't really think Isabella can quite grasp that she's going to be a big sister and that there's a baby in my belly, since she's pretty adamant she has one in her belly as well. She and Scott went with me to last month's appointment and through an ultrasound we got to see a very active baby ~ yeah, Isabella was not impressed. Anyway, hopefully we'll find out the sex of the baby next month so we'll make sure to keep you updated.

On that note, I will say good night now and go watch a movie with my hubby. Until next time.
