We've Been Busy!

Monet Morgan


Justin's handy work in the house!


"Demolition Daddy"


It might be time to get some ballet slippers?

"Curious" was on this morning and "everyone" was intently watching! I couldn't resist a picture!

We had an absolutely wonderful weekend! We had a rehearsal dinner Friday night and a wedding on Saturday. Justin did some demolition on Saturday & we watched the Auburn Tigers beat the Gators with some friends on Saturday night. War Eagle! Sunday afternoon we had a church picnic at church and had an action packed afternoon with egg tosses, egg races, tug-o-war and lots of jumping in the blow up thingies!

Last week the girls and I were headed back to the new house from Target and I was listening to HIS radio (local Christian station) and there was a pastor giving a sermon. I wasn't listening... but apparently Morgan was. From the backseat she said, "Mommy, this man is a pirate!" I figured she thought so because he had a deep voice, so I explained, "No honey, he's a pastor and he's giving a sermon!" She said, "No, I really think he's a pirate. He keeps talking about a treasure!" I laughed pretty hard as I listened to what he was preaching on... storing up your treasure in heaven! Argh matey!

Morgan is really into crafts these days; between play dough, sidewalk chalk, painting, coloring, and markers I can barely keep her occupied! I snapped a few photos of her in action! And the little Raiger thinks she's 2 and I can't keep her out of the paint and crayons too!

The new house is coming along! Not nearly as fast as I'd hope but things are happening! Justin got the wall taken down between the living room and family room, has ripped out carpet & kitchen cabinets, and has been painting too! The roofers put a new roof on last week and the painter has been there for 6 days now... but we can't seem to get him to stay past 2! He'll have to pick up the pace pretty soon! But overall we are getting excited and looking forward to being in once and for all!

The pictures look like it is coming along well! I can't wait to see it in person. It will be so worth it when you are settled in and can enjoy your first Christmas in your new house!!!

Can I come and watch Curious George too? It looks like you had a crowd! (At least half of them don't talk or eat or need attention!)

So I'm your "blog stalker". I'm the one who loved your poem so much that I asked Jenissa if I could modify it and use it. It just sums up my view of blogging (you have so much to say and so many pictures to share, but really should be doing more productive things)
Anyways, I found your blog a few weeks back through a friend of a friend's blog. I saw your adorable little girls and bookmarked it because I thought they were soooo beautiful. I also LOVE their names. Paige is actually one of my sisters' names and I hope to be able to use it one day, Lord wiling if I ever have a girl!
So, thanks for letting me "mooch" off your poem. My blog is raganoswalt.blogspot.com in case you want to check out your poem on a "boy blog" :-)
I just thought I would be the "blog stalker" that would speak up and identify themselves (I know I wish mine would :-)

Right now you may be wishing for a break, but I love all that the girls are in to. Painting, ballet and boots, and tv with friends what fun!

Abby Maddox said...

Love the new design. I'm jealous!

I am glad you have the confidence to let your husband tear down walls in your house. Jeremiah loves "construnction," but it makes me really nervous.

Darby Stickler said...

Abby, I didn't let him tear them down with out first consulting the 2 greatest contractors we know: Tommy and Neal! That might be scary too! :)

Ragan said...

Yes, it was the Hill's! I couldn't remember how I found you initially, but that's it. Kristen graduated the year before me from our high school in Memphis. I noticed you are an Auburn fan. Did you go there? My little sister and TONS of my friends went there, but me and my husband are Mississippi State alum. I guess I can forgive you for that, though :-)

Finley's Mom said...

Hi Darby! Love these pictures of the girls! It seems as things are going very well for the Sticklers- if only you could get into that new house already:-) Thanks for all of your posts on my blog! It makes me so happy to read them. No one else seems to comment...Or perhaps you are the only one reading?!?

So I figured it was about time to put a Stickler link on my blog because I always just go through L.A.'s to get to yours, haha! I am on the waiting list to get my blog pimped thanks to you :)P.S. I shared the idea with Linley and she is too...Did you ever figure out how to do music? I can help if not!
