Five more weeks!

Soon I will get to meet the little guy who likes to practice his karate on my internal organs! It feels kind of strange to think that this is the last baby I will have,but hubby and I know that we are done. We feel our family will be complete. :)

I finally decided what swing I'm going to buy for the baby. It's the Fisher Price Rainforest swing. It has received really good reviews and it plugs into an outlet so we don't have to use a lot of batteries. That is always a plus! :)

"It's an emotional time for us all.."

Today has been a roller coaster of emotions. One minute the kids make me want to scream and the next they are so sweet. Just now Josh made me an "I'm sorry" card because I am sick. I was feeling all tender inside and then Brady dumped cereal on the just vacummed floor. Grrrr...

Kids and scissors...just say NO!

Apparently Brianna thought her hair cut needed some layers. This the hair I found all around her chair.

I'm glad I got her pictures done last week!

Today I am thankful for a clean house. Now I can scrapbook without feeling I should be doing something more productive. ;)

What are you thankful for?

My hubby rocks the casbah!

Why you ask? Well for a lot of reasons; He's a great father,provider and hubby to name a few. Right now the reason I am talking about is because of what he did last night. I was feeling stressed because it had been a really hard day. The kids were terrors and Josh kept having meltdowns and saying,"you don't care about me or love me mom!" :( Anyway after dinner I was feeling really down and just counting the minutes until it was time to put the kids to bed. The house was a huge mess and I couldn't find the motivation to clean it which made me feel worse. So Adam took charge..he had the kids clean their room while he vaccummed the living room (which was covered in cereal that Brady dumped). He put in a load of laundry and then while he did the dishes I read to the kids and put them to bed. Then he swept and mopped the kitchen floor which had to be scrubbed in places (like I said the house was G-R-O-S-S). He was up until 11:00 even though he had to be up at 4:30 to get ready for work. When he came to bed he massaged my legs and I could tell he was exhausted. I so appreciate him stepping up to give me a break! :D :D

I don't have any before pics (thank goodness) but here is what the house looked like this morning...

Yay for a clean house!!

Last night I was looking up real estate online. I found a house that I REALLY want,but unfortunately it is about $60,000 more than we can afford. It is a really great price for the area it is in and it is SO nice! Unfortunately there are not a lot of options in our price range right now. :(

So last night I dreamed that we were looking at houses and we went to this particular one. We came home discouraged because we couldn't afford it. A few days later we received a money order for $60,000 that we could put towards our house which made our house payment affordable. I was ecstatic! Then I woke up to reality.



I went to bed in the springtime,then I woke up to winter! The weather is supposed to be really nice next week for spring break. I was not prepared for snow! :( At least it won't last very long. *sniffle*

Getting closer!

I have a doctor's appointment this afternoon. I'm already down to the two week visits. Eight more weeks to go! :-)

UPDATE: All went well at my appointment. My blood pressure was perfect and the nurse said that I've lost three pounds. The kids got bored because we were there for awhile so afterwards I took them to Carl's Jr. so they could play. It was 4:00 which is the perfect time because no one else is there. :D

Brianna's new hairdo!

Daddy finally caved and let Bri get her hair cut. I think it turned out so cute and it will keep her cooler this summer. :)

Donut Date

I went to Josh's class this morning for the kindergarten donut date. Josh was so excited to have me there. He told me about the kids in class,and showed me all of his favorite stuff. We read 5 books and then he just wanted to talk to me. :) Adam was awesome and went into work late so he could watch Bri and Brady. It was great to spend time with Josh,he is just growing up so fast.

Friday's Feast

Trace Adkins - You're Gonna Miss This

This is such a beautiful song. The first time I heard it,I got goosebumps and tears welled up in my eyes. It really got to me. There is nothing like the power of music.
