I thought I would share a few pictures quickly from the parade we went to this past Saturday. I think (for 2 children) we brought home about 3 lbs of candy (easy) It was amazing how much they where giving the children! The first picture is of the children in front of Nana and Prapaw. You can see my little "cowboy" with his hat on. ;) The theme was a "western" type theme for the parade so the children had their cowboy boots on (compliments of Nana and Prapaw.) The next two pics are of DS's favorite things.... Horses and firetrucks.
As some of you may think. I have just had a lot to do. Everything is still not put away yet. I have been exhausted the past couple of weeks. By the end of the day I feel like I could sleep for 12 hours. So...I am very slow on getting things done. Plus there isn't always a place to put everything. My kitchen is very small and There are boxes of items because there is no where to put my cookbooks, spices, and containers. It is just trying to figure out where everything goes and that it is in a place I will think to look later. ;)
I just wanted to do another quick check in. I am to see the midwife on Monday and hopefully the baby has turned, but...I don't think it has. I may have to go to the chiropractor on this one too. (DD was breech) So I will give all an update on that Monday or Tuesday. Hopefully I can get the house somewhat in order so I can post pictures. May God bless your day and week!
How was your Holiday? Did you stuff yourself full of God's word and not just food? I have to say that I failed in that area. We went down to my parents Wednesday night and came back last night becaue DH had to work today. It was a good visit...better than they have been in the past. The children had a lot of fun with Grandma, Grandpa, Aunt Sonya, and Eddie (Sonya's BF). Tomorrow we have my husband's family get together to go to. Another place to stuff ourselves! I remember before we got married we went to 3 or 4 Thanksgiving meals in one weekend! Never again! I am slowly getting things organized in the house. When I say slowly....I mean slowly....Pregnancy and 2 children sure do slow me down. But that is okay. It is only for a season that I will have these 2 "little" ones. It seems I get one room organized...go to unpack more boxes and the "organized" room become "Disorganized". Oh well...at least I can see how many boxes I have emptied...and it has been a lot. Well. I just wanted to check in with everyone. I need to get back to making dinner! May you all have a God filled weekend!
Yes...I am still alive. Just stressed as much as I could be. If it wasn't for the Lord...I don't know where I would be. I wanted to let everyone know that we got most of the items moved, Hubby and BIL are moving stuff from the Barn tonight. Have a great day.
Yes, this is officially moving week! I am so excited, but am so exhausted. With being 7 months pregnant, watching 2 small children, and packing.....I don't feel like I am worth much. I just can't wait for this week to be over and I can start getting settled in my new house so I can make it a home. I just wanted to do a quick post before I went back to packing. I pray all are having a wonderful week so far!
I just wanted to let everyone know that we found a house to move into! It's in town, but has a double lot with a 6+ foot privacy fence. Hubby and I think that the Lord is trying to tell us that having a lot of land to take care of is not for us this point in our lives. With 3 small ones this summer that would be a lot to take care of. It is only a block from a park that the children love and I can have my clothesline and I will have a few raised bed gardens this summer. They don't take up a lot of room and it will be less work for me with the 3 small ones. Last years garden was a 50x50 foot. We are moving in a little over a week! It is fast, but with THanksgiving the weekend after and everything we figured we should just go ahead and get it over with. Now the big thing is....we need a refrigerator. That is a pretty big thing that we need. Oh well...the Lord will provide. So here are the pictures. (Also..I finally switch over to Beta Blogger. The
regular one was giving me way too many problems.)
Here is a picture of the front of the house.
And a side view.
Another Side view.
And a picture of the back of the house and yard.
Well Since we are moving quickly I better hurry and finish up the packing!
My children just amaze me sometimes. Last night DS wanted me to lay in bed with him until he went to sleep. Well...I laid there and he wasn't about to fall asleep. I sat up...kissed him on the forhead... and he said.."No Mama...I need you." I then replied, "I need to do a load of laundry Honey." He then took out his hand from underneath the comforter and took my hand in his and said, "Please." How could I turn that down! Well...I couldn't. So I stayed there a little longer. We went through the same dialog one more time about 10 minutes later and about 10 more after that he tried pushing me out of bed and told me to go. I guess he realized I wasn't helping him fall asleep. This morning on the way to see the midwife the children where holding hands in the van and praying. They actually fight over who gets to pray! I guess there could be worse things to fight over. My visit with the midwife went just fine. AFter checking my hemoglobin, blood pressure, pulse, baby's position, heartbeat, measurement, etc. She said everything looked fine. Now...We just need to find a house! Oh well...Since I was gone this morning I better go and get to my laundry and packing! I pray you all had a wonderful weekend!
This has been DS favorite saying for the past couple of days. It is so cute! I was making a cake and he said, "I love chocolate Mama!" Then today he said, "I love soup!' He just keeps repeating what he loves over and over to make sure that you heard him. Then tonight after DD and DS had been bathed DD climbed into DS bed and they hug one another. DS then said, "I love her!" It was the most precious thing!
Still haven't found a place yet. We are trusting in the Lord to provide. We have never been homeless yet. Right now...besides packing..I am getting ready for another craft show locally. It's actually at the church where Hubby and I were married. Most of my work will be Friday when I make the twinkies and truffles. Right now I think I better go. I am struggling to keep my eyes open. I need sleep! Blessings to All.
