Quick Update

~I'm 27 weeks along now and all is going well. I try to enjoy the amount of sleep that I can get right now. I know that soon,I'll be a lot more uncomfortable and I'll have to visit the bathroom numerous times a night.

~Josh and Bri have been doing so well in school! Brianna is excited to go full time next year,but I think Josh will really miss his teacher. She has been so great to him,he thinks that's she is awesome. I can't believe that there are only 5 weeks of school left! Where is the year going? On one hand,it will be nice to take it easy in the mornings and be able to run errands whenever I want to. On the other hand,I know that I will hear "I'm bored!" multiple times a day. I told the kids that every time they say that to me,they will be assigned a chore. ;)

~Adam is still working for his brother Jon and going to school. His classes are 4 nights a week right now,but having a second car makes it so much easier for both of us.

~Brady and Camdy are the best of buddies. They play well together and they are so cute to watch. The other day Brady said that Camdy was the cutest brother ever! :)

~Camdy has had a lot of sickies lately. A few weeks ago he had a stomach bug so he was sick all weekend. Then this past weekend he woke up early Sunday morning with a fever of 102.5. He was cranky and didn't sleep well the rest of the night. His fever broke and he started playing and was acting just fine until later that day. He got another fever and it was more of the same Sunday night. Yesterday I took him to the doctor and she ordered X-ray's for him because it sounded like he had fluid in his lung. The result was positive for pneumonia,his right lung was full of fluid. Camden had to have blood drawn from his arm and then he had to get a painful shot in his leg. It was a very long day for both of us. :( He is already doing a lot better though. He slept all last night and even slept for another hour and a half today. He does have some coughing fits that cause him pain and then he wants me to hold and cuddle him. It's sad that he is sick but I love being able to cuddle with him.

Easter Fun!

This year I *finally* remembered to buy an egg coloring kit for the kids. It's pretty basic but it made them happy and that's what counts. :)

Last Friday night there was an egg hunt and bar-b-q at my IL's house. It was a lot of fun but the best part about it is the kids' excitement.

All of the kids waiting to go a'hunting.

On Saturday afternoon we went to another egg hunt at my parents house. My sister brings each kid a goody bag with little toys and trinkets. Then she hides colored eggs filled with candy and gold and silver ones filled with money. Each kid gets 4 colored eggs and a gold or silver one. This year she hid a note in one of the eggs and the kid who found it won a grand prize. Well,Camden was the lucky winner! It was a Hip Hop bunny who does a little dance. The kids played with it over and over so I had to banish the bunny to their room...for mommy's sanity.

Here are the kids' buckets from the Easter bunny. They each got a magna doodle,a book and a chocolate bunny.

On Sunday morning Josh got to go to Conference with his Aunt Jan. He had so much fun and he was very well-behaved. It was such a great experience for him and I'm happy he got to go. I'm really proud of the effort that he has made lately to behave and be nice to his siblings.

It was a great Easter/Conference weekend! :)

Brianna's 6th Birthday

Yesterday was my baby girl's birthday. She got a Zhu Zhu pet (the last one because I'm awesome..or maybe just lucky!) and mermaid jewelry. We met Aunt Karla and cousin Danni for lunch and then Adam and I took the kids to IHOP for dinner. Afterward we came home and had cake. Here are some pics of my monkeys...

I decided to use the "4" and "2" candles to incorporate a math lesson.. ;)

My beautiful girl!
