Friday Fragments

Half-Past Kissin' Time
It's Friday and time to share bits and pieces of my week through fragments with Mrs. 4444. It's been another cold and dreary week for the most part but it's been a good week in spite of the weather. 

 Our little girl has a name........yes, her Dad and Mom decided definitely last weekend and announced it.  So, here ya go!
So, now we can call her by name instead of baby girl, baby sister or little Sweetheart. And, in case you didn't know, we love double names here in the South.  So, now we'll have a Hanna Beth and an Andi Kate. ~how cute~   She is due one month from yesterday.
 ~that's really close~ 

Showers of gifts.......Windy's Lifegroup (what we use to call Sunday School) girls gave her and another expectant Mom in their group a lovely "showering" this past Tuesday evening.  
These gals get a lot of practice in this area and they know what they are doing.  It was decorated so sweetly and the food was delicious and the fellowship was over the top!  I am so thankful that she and our son have such a wonderful Christian group to call their friends.
Windy got a nice array of gifts, sweet little gowns for those first weeks, some precious little girly girl stuff and lots and lots of diapers and wipes. ~can't do without them!

Lots of house progress......yes, this week, each day brought significant changes to the new house.  
The carpenters added the mahogany  insert in the kitchen ceiling and the pictures just do not do it justice, but it is beautiful and really will be with the pretty light fixture that goes there.  Then the cabinet designer added the buffet under the window with the mahogany top and I couldn't be more pleased with that either.  And, the carpenters finished out the trim on the front windows with the half moons and I am so pleased with them as well.  Guess you could say I'm pretty much "pleased as a peach" with all that took place this week. I can't imagine how much better it will all look once the painting begins. ~such fun~ 

That's the fragments from my week, so here's wishing each of you a wonderful weekend!  Can you believe it's already the 3rd weekend into the new year?

Welcome to my little corner!


  1. Good morning! I LOVE LOVE the name! Soo cute. I love a double name too for some reason, and I am not even from the south, lol. The shower from the church ladies is soo nice. Melody is involved in just such a ministry in her church and finds herself organizing these little "prayer" times frequently. And let's face it. diapers and wipes are ALWAYS needed, lol. Melody and her hubby have not settled on a name yet. I am loving her latest possibility and hope they go with that one, but who knows could be different today. Names are important so I guess you need to be sure. The house looks sooo good! I just know it's going to be gorgeous when it is all done and it won;'t be long now. Enjoy your week-end!

  2. Andi Kate...what a cute name. Love the work on the new house. So pretty.

  3. Double names can be fun. Cici doesn't count - right?
    Nice looking house. I haven't been browsing by much so I'll assume the house is in your current location.

  4. I love the name Andi Kate, I know you have got to be so won't be long!

  5. Andi Kate! What a wonderful name! It sounds friendly.

    Ooooh! LOVE what's happening with your house!

  6. Omigoodness, that name is ADORABLE!!! Looks like the house is coming along; I've enjoyed your updates. I'm to the point of thinking I shouldn't bother painting at hour house; I suspect we will be moving on in a few years. Thanks for linking up! Have a wonderful weekend!!

  7. Happy Monday Lea, I love the name and your girl is so beautiful; you must be thrilled with have a new little one to love. The book they gave her is one of my all time favorites! So much work on the house. Have a wonderful day!!!
    Hugs, Noreen

  8. Beautiful name, love it! Looks as though your DIL is indeed blessed with many friends...super excited for you all! I love the insert in the kitchen, great idea.


  9. Oh yes double names...I don't have that, but my DILs family does for the four girls. What a precious shower and the house is looking wonderful.

  10. What a pretty name for your new little one! We have an Annie Claire and I always call her that. I like double names! Your daughter-in-law's shower was so tastefully done, and the picture of you and her is beautiful!

    As for the house progression, I can't imagine how excited you must be! From now on, the house will start coming alive for you, especially when the painting starts. Thanks for sharing it's progress.


So glad you stopped by and hope you enjoyed your visit. I love your comments and read each and every one of them and I always try to reply to them. Blessings to you this day!
