Life on Hold & A Funny Story!

I wish I had some exciting news to blog about from the weekend but I really don't. Life in the Eckley household has been on hold for the past month or so. Matt is getting ready for his big BCOP test that is this Saturday. He has also been putting in lots of extra hours at work so he was gone all weekend. He has been studying so hard! Every night since April he has spent at least an hour studying. He is going to do awesome on Saturday! We are excited that we are going to get to take a long weekend trip to Atlanta. And then when we get back we will hit the ground running getting everything done that needs to get done. Believe me we have a list a mile long of things that we have been putting off! So all the neighbors will be happy that our yard will start to look better and I will be able to update on the pink paint saga (but as a small update the painters painted and it looks good just lots more work to do in there!) Hard to believe that in about 2 months we will be a family of 4!! AHHHH!!

Now for the funny story! We did get to have a little fun this weekend - we went over to our friends the Newby's house on Saturday to watch the Auburn game. We had a blast hanging out with them and catching up on life. After the game was over we changed Ben into his PJs for the ride home and he decided that he was going to wear his shoes so he put them on himself. We forgot they were on him and when we got home he walked in and went straight to bed. By the time I got to his room he was already under the covers so I didn't notice he was still wearing his shoes. So Sunday morning he came walking out wearing his shoes that he had slept in all night. Matt and I thought that was hilarious so we laughed and made a big deal about it. So this morning Ben comes walking into our room at 6:30 wearing his shoes. I guess he wanted to make us laugh again this morning so he acted like he wore his shoes all night. It is was too cute. He is so into trying to be funny these days and he does succeed!
