hoppy loppy

I was supposed to share my favourite new makeup with y'all almost TWO Mondays ago. Oops. I'm genuinely sorry. My husband has been traveling. We've all been sick. Blah. Blah. Blah.

My bad.

So, I promise to share that with you (because it would make an AWESOME Christmas gift!) after Thanksgiving, as I am hosting Turkey Day this year at mi casa. I'll be running around like a chicken (errr...turkey?) with my head cut off all week. I feel certain most of you understand my situation.

In the meantime, I had to bore you with a few funny things my girls have said over the last week.

1. After Baby Elle and I dropped Little Leighton (aka LL) at school one day last week, we headed to Hobby Lobby. I was talking to ELC on the phone as we were pulling into the parking lot. From the backseat, I heard a tiny, cute little voice exclaim, "Hoppy Loppy! Hoppy Lobby!" First, I had no clue Baby Elle could even attempt to say Hobby Lobby. Second, apparently I have a problem if my daughter, who is not even twenty-months-old yet, can recognize the building. Again--OOPS. (Little Leighton=Staples. ELC told this story in a previous post.)

2. ELC came to spend this past Thursday night with me while Hubby was out of town. Baby Elle had been particularly grouchy that afternoon. Sweet Little Leighton had had enough (I don't blame her.) She looked at Elle (while Elle was standing in front of the chair she was sitting on) and said, "Bye, Felicia." ELC and I just about died! She used it properly. (This was after last week when, as we were pulling into our church parking lot, LL, very seriously and completely out of the blue, asks me, "Mom, who is Felicia?" HA!)

3. Later that evening, ELC and I were reading bedtime stories to LL in her room. I can't remember what I did that was annoying her, but she looked at me and said, "CLIP." ELC has mentioned recently my IMPECCABLE taste in TV programming. This particular phrase (which basically means "Stop talking") comes from my favourite Dorinda Medley on Real Housewives of NY. LL has NEVER seen an episode (promise), but I guess I say this a lot now. (Because it cracks me up!) Google it, if you haven't heard Dorinda say it.

4. Yesterday, after an amazing morning at the Fort Worth Zoo, the girls and ELC were riding with me to donate clothes, toys and books to a local charitable organization. I (jokingly) told Baby Elle I was considering donating her, too. Little Leighton, again quite seriously, says, "Oh, yippee! Then there will be just good ol' me left!" God love her.

I hope y'all are having a wonderful weekend!

Stay GRATEFUL this week!

TTFN.
