I finished my sunroom the other day. I have two more decorative pillows to pick up that are done but I haven't gotten by the place to get them. I will post pics when I get some good ones. I LOVE it and am so glad it is done. It was the last room to get done yet it opens up to the den so everyone who comes over sees it so it needed to be done.
We went and saw Nana and Pop today - they were great and William behaved for them. He seemed to enjoy all their Christmas musical things. We even had a discussion on whether one of their toys was a monkey or bear and later I picked it up and it made a noise. Nana was shocked. The noise was that of a monkey so problem solved.
Shug and Dada invited William over to spend the night last night. Matt and I were so excited about a night off. We dropped him off at 5:45. We even video taped it to mark this big night of his life. Matt and I then went to dinner with friends and before it was even completely over Mom called. William was having a FIT. A MAJOR FIT! He was throwing a tantrum. My sweet little William has learned to be mad and boy can he show it. He must have gotten that from Matt :) j.k. Mom had done EVERYTHING we told her to do. So we left our little get together and went to pick him up. So 3 hours later we were video taping the pick up. How funny. He slept the entire night and didn't even get up until 8:30 this morning. The dr. said he would be going through separation anxiety right now and we have seen it. If I just walk out of the room he melts. Ah... what to do. He plays great on his own but someone HAS to be in the room. I don't know what to do. Anyway, we will try spending the night with Shug and Dada again soon. Matt and I might be spending the night too so we can help him cope with it. Hopefully he will out grow some of this separation anxiety.
Matt and I are having about 10 people over next Monday for a Christmas dinner. It is just family (julie, josh, ac, mallory, beth, mom, dad, betty, betsy, nana, and pop). We did this last year. We have had so much fun planning dessert. Last year we did chocolate mouse with cool whip snowmen on top. Well they were supposed to be snowmen. They melted a little and were a little leany and not quite snowmen looking. We got a GREAT laugh out of it. SO this year, we are trying to do something that will work but be creative. We have some great ideas. Luckily Matt loves to cook and bake. He is more excited about it than I am. It is great that he wants to help and be creative.
Other than that - Merry Christmas if I don't get a chance to write again until then.

Julie and I are playing in an informal tennis tournament this weekend. We are so excited. We signed up to play doubles together but not enough 4.0 players signed up so they are splitting us up and putting us with other people so they can put us in the 3.5 bracket. I don't think Julie and I are quite 4.0 players anyway but it is sad we can't play with each other - that would be the first time in a tournament since High School. Oh well, next time. If any of you hear of a tournament near this area (Macon or south of it) let me know - I want to play more!!!! I know Macon has some and I need to know when - Miriam and Cal tell me so I can come up and play! Anyway, hopefully we will get paired with people that are decent and one of us can still win.
Other than that - nothing going on. Hope all is well with everyone. Happy Thanksgiving!
Here is me with the two people I am named after!

Well, Georgia unfortunately lost on Sat. I cannot even talk about it because it makes me so mad that we allowed them to score 31 points in the first half. Ah.... Anyway, William was in his black and proud of it. I have included captions to let you know what he was thinking!

We reversed them and now we are no longer identical!
Sitting like a big boy!
Sitting in a restaurant high chair for the first time - I was with Nana and Pop!

So with great excitement, Julie and I went and got our fabric on Tuesday. We went straight for the sale rack and we will never wear these vests again. We definitely found some material that we thought would be funny (tacky) but decided to go with something not so bad so we don't offend Niler.
We go back on Monday and start on our vests. I will be sure to take a picture of us wearing our $75 vests when we finish. I can't wait to Monday and the joy it will bring me.
Other people's machines - Aren't they nice?

Soon to come: Julie and I started sewing classes on Monday. It was the funniest thing ever - I am going to post about it but keep putting it off bc I know I can't do it justice. I can definitely talk about it with Julie and we would have y'all all laughing but to write it in words - ohhhh.... that is tough for someone like me. So maybe I will take the challenge and write about it tonight or tomorrow. Definitely an event for the Terry Twins.

Matt and I have very little time between work and taking care of William so our yard has gotten a little messy. It is definitely not first priority for us. Anyway, Matt mowed yesterday while I was watching William. However, mowing was just one of the many things that needed to be done. Our gardens had been over taken by weeds. It was terrible and embarrassing. But when would we have time to go out there and pull weeds when William has to be watched? Before William, our garden was always looking good bc we had time. I tell you, once you have a child - you have NO time to get things done since someone always has to be with your child. Anyway, William went down at 8:15 yesterday and Matt and I decided it was time to pull weeds. So we started with the sun setting but by the time the sun had gone down, we were not near done. This was a good excuse to quit, but I am one of those that needs to finish what I start. Plus, when would I be able to get back out there and finish it? So, with flashlights, we continued pulling weeds. There we were, kneeling with flashlights trying to pull weeds in the dark. I am sure it was quite a sight. We thought it was pretty smart, no gnats, no heat, and no one having to entertain William. Our neighbors thought it was amusing. Two of them came out of their house to make a point in telling us that when it got dark, you stop working outside. We reminded them that their children were grown and that this was the only time we had to get it done. We did finish at 9:30 last night and all the weeds were pulled. However, as the pictures below show, some of our mondo grass got pulled too. Oops! And yes, I realize you can see some of the tarp - we also need to get more pinestraw!
(I don't know why the pictures turned vertically - they are horizontal on my computer - anyone know how to fix this?)
Now this one was already small - not near as big as the ones around it but it still got pulled a little more than it should! Since it was smaller - it was overlooked by our flashlights! Stupid darkness!
Yes, that is mondo grass at the top - just a little thing! Oh and yes, this is a different mondo grass than the one above. :)
Next time maybe we won't pull weeds in the dark - Luckily we do have some extra mondo grass that we can put there to hide our mistakes!

For those curious, here is a list of what was made:
10 bags of Gumbo
9 bags of Bean and Ham soup
16 bags of Taco Soup
12 bags of Speghetti sauce
8 Chicken Tetrazinis
So after all that was done - William needed a bath! Actually with all the sweating that Julie and I were doing, we needed a bath more but William's bedtime was soon so we had to bath him. When Julie saw the rolls on William she HAD to take a picture of him. Just so you know, he does NOT have that many rolls it was how Matt was holding him. Anyway, I thought they were funny pics so I am including them. What a big boy! I think he may out weigh Davis! Nothing like two healthy boys - right Lauren?

So Anna Claire sang Happy Birthday to Shug ALL day on mom's birthday. It was so cute. She even sang it SEVERAL times in Belks so that everyone knew it was mom's birthday. She was so cute singing it that I HAD to get it on tape and share it with all of you. Enjoy and happy birthday Shug!
