So I haven't been on here is a couple years. Life moves at such a fast pace that things are not even close to how they were back then. My oldest has been reading for a while and is in school while the middle child is just about ready for me to start teaching her to read and I have a little toddler as well. That is correct, I now have three kids. It's a little weird to look back at the last stuff I posted and it was right before my middle child was born. There is a lot of life and a lot of lessons that I have learned. I think I'll come back and post some of the stuff with pictures, but it will be a slow process so don't hold your breath. Have a great day!
 
 
I know it has been quite some time since I was on and posted anything new.  A lot has happened and life has just gotten busier than it has ever been.  We now have 2 beautiful daughters and a dog.  A friend of mine watches the kids during the day while we work.  Once we are home in the afternoon she does whatever she feels like while we take care of whatever she didn't around the house and play with the kids.  I still have a goal of eventually being a sahm, but for now this is our lot in life.  I'll update with pictures and more at another time.  Have a enjoyable day and lif
 
 
Well, I know I haven't been on much, but I am now 32 weeks and thought it was about time to take a new picture for the viewers that like to see a growing belly!

So for kicks and giggles, I took my pic of the day before Eliza was born and drew a line around my round shape and pasted it on my current picture.  By the looks of it I still have a ways to go, and I may even end up larger or just the same size.  I guess only time will tell.

It has been a while, but I thought I'd add some new pictures of Eliza and the new puppy my sister has.

Can anyone say Jack in the Box?  Eliza just loves to climb in and out of things, not matter what it is!

These next ones were taken with a different camera, because my nice one broke!  Looking at them and the work I do just to try and get a decent photo tells me that I'm probably going to have to figure out how to come up with the money to replace my old camera.  It is like night and day when you see the pictures.

Swasy, the girl Yorkie puppy!  The newest member of the family, especially since my sister is living with us.

So it has been a while, and I know a lot of people who aren't near want to see how big I'm getting, so here is a new belly picture for every ones enjoyment!  Oh, and I have given up trying to wear a belt with the blouse for a while.

So I've had this bug and totally obsessed about growing things and getting my garden planned and everything prepared and to grow some starts in my house.  I found a software with a 30 day free trial that I'm using to plan my garden and I'm not going to do the traditional row style, but a completely different style, and it should be so cute and awesome!  Anyways, here is a picture from the software of what I have planned so far.  I'm sure you can't tell what everything is, but just think vegetable garden and you might be able to figure it out.  Some of the things in there are: beans, peas, tomatoes, peppers, carrots, cillantro, beets, squash, watermellon, cantelope, pumpkins, rhubarb, raspberry bushes, strawberries.  The round white circles are supposed to represent stepping stones, if I can manage to get the made (I'm experimenting with that this weekend hopefully).  Enjoy!

This is just a quick post.  I'll have to put more up later.  At any rate, I thought I'd share the size of my belly so far.

I know I'm slow, but I though I would get some pictures up from our recent fun.  Above you can see my scary creation for the year.  It was actually quite fun to make, but took a lot more time.  If you have ever tried to do a thin wall designed pumpkin then you will know what I'm talking about.  At any rate, I made Joe jealous of my pumpkin.

The day before halloween Eliza and myself went with my sil to trick-or-treat around her husbands work, and afterword went to a corn maze and activities.  Below you will see my two neices, my sister-in-law, and Eliza having fun.  Eliza wouldn't ride the pony by herself but was insitent that she get a turn, so I took her on the pony myself.  She is such a stinker at times.  All the kids loved the horse tire swings!  Eliza wanted to get on them every time we got near them.  We also did some burlap sack sliding but I didn't get any pictures of that.  It was quite chilly the day before halloween so everyone is bundles up, and then the following day on halloween it wa warm enough to only need a light jacket or none at all if you were wearing warm enough clothing.  Crazy weather!

Apparently walking into the corn was more fun that wandering the maze!  Love the little ones!

Halloween day!  There were plenty of leaves to rake up and play in, and Eliza had a blast crunching her way thru the leaves.

We went to a trunk-or-treat in the church parking lot and had a fun time handing out candy and Eliza went around with Joe collecting candy.  The little stinker wouldn't keep her hat on when she came over to the car, but loved having it on when she was going around getting the candy.  I bet it was more that she was distracted by all the candy to collect and didn't care enough until she stopped by our car.  After the trunk-or-treat we went to a party with friends and ate food, had pie, and watched some movies.  Eliza was completely worn out when we got there and slept for a couple hours until she decided it was time to get up and get some food.  Needless to say, that nap recharged her enough that she was a stink bug when we went to put her in bed after the party.  All in all it was a ton of fun!

If you can't tell in the picture, Eliza LOVES dogs.  If I was a SAHM then we probably would have a dog, but we aren't home enough so the dog would be too neglected so no pets for us yet.  Perhaps in a year or so.

When I found out at my 12 week appointment that one of the twins had died, I didn't post and haven't for a while.  I thought it was time that I shared my progress again.  This is the healthy baby at 16 weeks and 1 day.  It was eating one of its hands and was so cute to watch it open and close the little mouth!  I'll try to keep things more up to date.  Later!
