* Undecorate tree
* Clean up family room
* Sweep kitchen
Mostly I want to get the tree undecorated so the boys can play in the living room again. I also might be going with my sister to look at wedding dresses. Yep, my little sister is getting married! Hard to believe. So that should be fun. Hopefully my hungry little chunker will let me put him down for a bit so I can get started. He just fell asleep so I'm going to see if I can put him down now.

We got a lot of snow this last week so Hubby had to shovel the driveway last night so he could get the car out for work today, and today he finished the rest of the driveway and the sidewalk. I let the boys play out in the snow today and they had fun. We have some drifts that are as tall as they are.
The boys have been really good today. Mostly they have been in the playroom enjoying their new toys. It's really nice when they play well together and don't make too much mess.
Tomorrow I'm going to try to get pics uploaded so I can post about our wonderful Christmas.

We spent Christmas Eve with my family eating, watching Muppet Christmas, playing games, and opening some presents. It was a fun night and I laughed a lot. The boys got plenty worn out so I hope they sleep great.
I can't wait to watch the boys open presents in the morning. So much fun! After we open presents we are packing and heading up to Idaho for the weekend. I'm not looking forward to the trip because Nathan hates being in the car seat, hopefully he does ok.
Well, it is time for me to head to bed. The stocking are full, presents placed under the tree, and the boys are sleeping peacefully. Merry Christmas!

* Put away some laundry
* Frost sugar cookies with the boys
* Wrap presents
* Make PJ pants for the boys
See, the only real chore I've given myself is to get the laundry folded and put away since I have 3 loads just sitting in piles waiting. Once Jakey wakes up from his nap we will frost cookies. Then I will measure the boys and see if I have some good material to make their PJ pants. That will be their Christmas Eve gift. Then after the boys go to bed I plan to get Christmas presents wrapped. I love wrapping presents.
Monday, December 22, 2008
I am so excited that Christmas is just 3 days away! I love watching my boys open presents and seeing what surprises Hubby got for me. And I am excited for it to be over too, lol. It is a stressful time with all the presents, traveling, etc. So I am always happy to see it come and go.

Have you been in the stores in the last few days? It is crazy! We went grocery shopping yesterday and also picked up a few last minute Christmas stuff and the stores were so busy. I guess most people are like us and wait until it's almost too late to get their Christmas stuff. Every year I promise myself that I am going to start my Christmas shopping early but we never do.
How are you all doing with your Christmas preparations? Done? Scrambling for those last minute gifts? Not even started?
Friday, December 19, 2008
Hubby is a big help too, he sometimes will take the baby for a few hours so I can go to bed without him, and then just bring him to me when he wakes up. I love watching Hubby with Nathan, it is so sweet.
And the boys have done so well with him. Jakey always runs to get the binky any time Nathan fusses (although Nathan does not appreciate the binky being shoved in his face lol) and they love to hold him and check on him. The only thing that is really hard is when Jason and Jakey are getting into things and making messes while I nurse and I can't get up to do anything about it.
It makes me sad that the time is passing so quickly because I am really enjoying the baby time. I love that I can put Nathan down somewhere and leave the room and he's still in the same spot and hasn't destroyed the room when I get back lol. This baby stage is much easier than 2-4 years old. :) Cuddling with my little guy is so sweet. In the morning when he is awake and happy is the best time. And when he is tired and snuggles to sleep on my chest I don't want to put him down. He is almost smiling, not quite there but almost.
Being a mom is exhausting and I lose my patience much too often, but when I'm holding my sweet sleeping baby and he gives a little dream giggle, I know it is all worth it.

* Clean family room
* Sweep and mop kitchen
* Finish Christmas shopping
Mostly today I just want to get the family room cleaned up and some laundry done. If I get anything else done that would be great. We are almost all done with Christmas shopping, and I think when Hubby gets home tonight I'll go to the store to shop for him. First though I'm going to nurse the baby and try to get a nap.
Sunday, December 14, 2008
Friday, December 12, 2008
Anyway, I have a chiropractor appointment this morning so I need to get the boys ready to go. Baby is fussing at me. Have a great day!

* Dishes- one load running already
* Laundry- also started a load
* Clean up family room
I think that's all that I really need to do today. We had company over Sunday so we got a lot of cleaning done before that so the house isn't too bad. Mostly I need to get laundry done cuz I'm pretty much down to wearing PJs. Good thing I have nowhere to go anyway, so I can get away with not looking my best lol.
Monday, December 08, 2008
Friday Hubby and I (and Nathan) went to Hubby's work Christmas party. It was fun and Nathan was good for most of it, just got fussy a little and when it was time to leave he was screaming.
Saturday Hubby went and picked out our Christmas tree (I let him do it alone cuz he always picks such nice ones) and we decorated it yesterday. It was funny watching the boys decorate the tree, they kept just clumping things together on the bottom branches. We let them do it as they pleased and then we just evened it out later.
We also had Nathan's baby blessing at church yesterday so we had lots of family and friends over. We came home and ate and chatted after. It was good to see everyone. Nathan looked so cute dressed in his little white tux that Hubby picked out. I will have to post a picture sometime.
Agh, I just realized I still haven't posted Halloween pictures either lol. Kind of got distracted by having a baby lol. I may or may not ever get them posted.
Wednesday, December 03, 2008
I think Nathan must be having a little growth spurt. The past few days he has been awake more and wanting to eat ALL the time. That's part of the reason I haven't gotten much done lately. The other part is that when he is asleep I want to finally just do something relaxing without having to hold him lol. Like read a book. I'm re-reading the Twilight books, just started New Moon today. I had to borrow my sister-in-law's books since I lent mine to a friend and keep forgetting to get them back. These books are hard to put down once you get started! Time just slips away. So I didn't get much done today again. Actually, I think I'm going to go work on the playroom now while I'm taking a break from my book. I need to at least feel like I did something to keep my house from falling apart lol.
Now, let's see how well I do today.
Tuesday, December 02, 2008
I hope I feel more rested tomorrow so I can get more of my to-do list done. I really want to get the playroom and office cleaned up. It looks like a bomb went off down there. I'm tempted to just throw away all the toys. The boys don't really play with them, just dump them out all over the place, then it is such a mess there is no room to play anyway.
Oh well, I am going to bed now and not going to think about all I didn't get done. :P
Well, I did get a load of dishes done today. So far that's it. I'm hoping when Hubby gets home he'll help me clean up the family room. Jason and Jakey have been driving me crazy today. Making messes and disobeying and just not listening. And of course the usually do it while I'm busy nursing so I can't get up to do anything about it. Good thing they are so cute and I have an adorable baby that I can look at and cuddle to calm down. :) Now I need to go get dinner going. I think I'll make french toast, that sounds yummy.
* Sweep/mop kitchen
* Clean bathrooms
* Clean family room/vacuum
* Fold laundry
* Clean playroom
* Clean office/storage room
Obviously I have a lot of stuff that I need to clean, but I have been pretty busy and just can't keep up with everything right now. I am so tired and when I'm not busy feeding the baby or getting him to sleep I just want to lay down and rest. I really need to at least do dishes today so we have clean stuff to eat on, and it would be helpful to get the laundry put away so I can find clothes easier. So those are what I'm going to start with today and I'll see if I get to anything else after that.

Tomorrow I have a checkup to make sure my incision is looking good and all that. Oh yeah, and Nathan had his 2 week checkup on Friday. He's up to 9lb 11oz and 21.5". He's healthy and doing great. Hard to believe he's already 2.5 weeks old.
Anyway, I better head to bed. I am so tired and Nathan wakes up every 2-3 hours to eat so I really need to get to bed sooner these days.
I feel so blessed to have my three adorable little boys. Sure, Jason and Jakey drive me crazy most days, but they are also so sweet and loving. And they adore their little brother. Every time Nathan cries Jakey yells, "Oh, he's fussy, needs his binky!" and goes running for his binky to help him feel better. They both love to hold him and want to know what he's doing all the time. It is so cute. I'm sure I'll be feeling insane when Nathan gets old enough to join in the mess-making with his brothers, but hopefully they will still always be sweet enough to make up for it. :)

Right now Hubby and I are watching the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. Big balloons, dancing, bands, sparkly stuff. Lots of fun. And of course later there will be some football watching going on. I don't know if anyone in my family is going to go play football today. Normally the guys go play football, but usually someone gets hurt too, and I don't know if they plan to do it this year.
So what is everyone else up to today? I hope you all enjoy the holiday and have a safe, happy time!
Wednesday, November 26, 2008
Unfortunately it wasn't enough to win, but he did come in 3rd. The 1st and 2nd place people lost 22.4% and 22.3%, so he was very close. And the other contestants weren't even close behind him. Too bad only 1st place gets a prize. He worked so hard and I am very proud of him. He is so happy to finally get to stop dieting and exercising so much. He actually needs to gain back a little weight cuz he lost more than is healthy for him.
Love you honey, way to go!
Tuesday, November 25, 2008
This is why I don't get much done around the house lately. Can you blame me? I just want to cuddle him and kiss his soft, squishy cheeks. He is way too adorable :D When he's awake and just staring in my eyes I just want to hold him forever and tell him how much I love him and how cute he is. And when he's asleep looking so peaceful and sweet, I want to just hold his tiny perfect hands and caress his little nose and soft hair. Who could resist such cuteness?!
* Cuddle baby
* Feed baby
* Change diapers
So, my days are pretty much full of nursing, rocking, changing, etc. Occasionally I get around to doing a load of dishes or picking up the family room or getting a load or two of laundry done, but mostly I sit with my little baby in my arms for large portions of the day. Nathan has had a diaper rash for the last few days that makes him fussy, but overall he is still very easy-going.
Thursday, November 20, 2008
I am also thankful for my Hubby who works so hard for us. And I love watching him hold the baby, it is so sweet. Jason and Jakey are doing great with Nathan too and I'm happy about that.
What are you thankful for?
Sunday, November 16, 2008
Isn't that the sweetest little face?!
Jakey would have held him all night if we'd let him
Me with my boys
The whole family (the boys had had enough of pictures by this time lol)
Saturday, November 15, 2008
I'm a bit nervous to go home tomorrow and have to worry about the kids and house and feeding myself lol. I'm sure I'll get the hang of things quickly enough, it's just the transition to mommy of 3 is a bit scary. Hopefully it goes smoothly and we all get used to the new addition without too much trouble.
I better go to bed now. I'm tired and my eyes won't stay open, plus my feet are swelling a bit so I need to put them up and rest. Good night!
Anyway, I am going to try napping for a bit while Nathan is asleep and Hubby is going out to get himself something to eat.
Friday, November 14, 2008
So at 10pm we got to the birth center. I labored a lot in the tub, and things were very peaceful for the next 6 hours or so. The boys and Hubby slept for a while and my mom and sisters were there and slept off and on. I finally hit transition and the pushing stage and things became more painful than I remember it being with Jakey. I pushed from about 6:15 to 8 with little progress and increasing pain. No matter what we tried (and we tried just about everything the midwife could think of) he was not coming down past a certain point. I could barely even move my left leg because something was hitting the nerve and causing stabbing pain in it.
Finally a little after 8am Thursday we all talked and decided that there was nothing more we could do at the birth center, I was too exhausted and in too much pain to go any further, so we decided to transfer to the hospital. That was the most painful car ride I've ever been on. My dad drove because he can drive fast and crazy without hurting anyone lol. He broke pretty much every traffic law written getting us there as fast as he could, running lights, driving on the sidewalk, etc. Luckily I was too busy screaming in pain in the backseat to pay attention to the driving lol, or I would have been afraid for my life. My midwife was back there with me calling ahead to the hospital so they would have everything ready for us.
We got to the hospital around 8:45am, and Hubby ran through the halls with me screaming in a wheelchair. They quickly got me into a room and started checking the baby and getting me an IV and there were tons of people rushing around while I was moaning and screaming in pain. They were very worried about the baby's heart rate and said we had to do a c-section right away. They could have done a spinal but they said it would be best to put me under general anesthesia. I was in so much pain I was practically begging them to just do it fast. I was actually grateful they were doing the general because I just wanted the pain to stop asap. So they are getting me all ready and next thing I remember is waking up in a recovery room.
The c-section went well. Nathan was born at 8:57am Thursday weighing 9lbs 3.8oz and 21.25 in. We found out that his arm had been wedged in sidewise in front of his head and that's why he wasn't coming out the regular way. So I felt better knowing the c-section was definitely necessary, even though it was completely opposite of the birth experience I wanted to have. I don't remember anything until around 11am in the recovery room. And I didn't get to see or hold him until I'd been taken to my postpartum room around 1pm. When I finally got him I was just so happy to see him. He is adorable and has lots of dark hair. He nursed right away like a pro. He sleeps well and is so calm, only gets fussy when he needs to burp.
I am recovering much better with this c-section than I did with Jason's, despite the more traumatic labor, so that is good. I'm still very exhausted and sore all over, but happy that my little boy is finally here. We've had lots of visitors, and of course there are doctors and nurses coming in and out all the time, so I haven't gotten much sleep. Hubby is staying here with me and the boys are at my mom's house until we get home in a few days.
Oh, sounds like Nathan is getting ready to wake up and eat so I better get pics uploaded real quick so I can post this :)

* Midwife Appointment this morning
* Took sister to a job interview
* Had my sister color my hair
I'm sitting here with hair color soaking in, I needed it so bad, my roots had grown out way too far. And I wanted to look nice when I have the baby, so we had to get it done soon. After I get it all washed out we are heading to my parent's house cuz my dad invited us over to watch some world poker thing with everyone. I probably won't be watching it much since it doesn't really interest me, but we figured we could get out and socialize a little lol. It'll disrupt the boys' bedtime, but that's ok, once in a while won't hurt.
Anyway, make sure you keep checking in here, cuz the baby might be showing up sooner rather than later ;)
So, any guesses on when this baby is coming and how big he'll be?!
Monday, November 10, 2008
So here is Jakey showing off his blankey:
And here's a pic so you can kind of see the blanket itself (Kate, email me (link in sidebar) if you want the pattern, I'll try to explain it, it's one I was taught so there isn't a pattern online):
And just for fun, here's some pics of Jakey from last night after he got into a Hershey's bar lol:
Hubby found a little kitten on our porch last night and brought it in. If it weren't so cold and wet out I would just put him back out because we do not need another cat and the boys won't leave the poor thing alone. As it is, I am going to make up some flyers to post around the neighborhood because I'm pretty sure he's not just a stray, he's not afraid of us or being in the house and he uses the litter box so I'm sure he's someone's pet. If nobody calls to claim him quickly I'm not sure what I'll do, cuz I do not want him here. Not to be mean, cuz he is adorable and I love kittens, but just keeping the boys from torturing him is quickly wearing at the last shreds of patience I have.
On a happy note- I FINALLY finished the blanket I started crocheting for Jakey when I was pregnant with him! It's only 2.5 years late lol. He was so excited when I told him it was all done and wrapped him up in it. I will try to post a pic later. (I know, I'm always promising pics and not delivering, but I really will!)
I need to go to the library today to return some books and movies, and I have a chiropractor appointment later. Other than that I am going to try to clean today. The house gets messy way too quickly. Already did a load of dishes and I think I'll get some laundry done next and then another load of dishes (how do they pile up so fast?!).

Any ideas on how I can pass the time?
What are you thankful for today?
I've been more productive this morning than usual. I got dishes done, counter and table washed, floor swept, and my little sister helped the boys clean up the family room so I can get it vacuumed. I think I may be nesting cuz I suddenly just want the house to be clean.
Other than that there isn't much going on today. Just a bright sunny day. Oh, and did I mention we've gotten a few inches of snow this week?! I'm sure I've told you all that I HATE snow! Grr. Oh well, it had to show up some time right?
Tuesday, November 04, 2008
* A few loads of laundry
* Clean up family room
I love getting things crossed off my list :) Hubby and I got up and voted this morning, nice and early. It's the first time I've voted in a presidential election. I am so glad elections are almost over, finally! Then I had an appointment with my midwife today. Everything is still looking good and normal, we are just waiting for baby to pick his birthday. Hopefully soon because I feel like I'm going to fall apart. I've already done a load of dishes and I just need to do a few loads of laundry and clean up the family room a bit. We are leaving in a few minutes to take my sister out job hunting. That's my productive day :)
Monday, November 03, 2008
Then I completely forgot I was going to take my sister job hunting, so we need to remember to go do that tomorrow, along with a few other things. I didn't do too much else today except a load of dishes. This time change has my internal clock all messed up. It feels like bedtime already and it's only 6:30. Maybe I'll go to bed early tonight.
Saturday, November 01, 2008
So, I was right. When we got home all the candy was gone. But, not only was the candy gone, the BOWL it had been in was gone too! They actually stole the ugly big yellow bowl the candy had been in! I can understand taking the candy, but the bowl?! It wasn't even some fancy bowl, just a big yellow bowl I hardly ever use, not worth anything. Hubby looked around to see if they'd tossed the bowl, but it was gone. I'm wondering what that kid's parents thought when he arrived home with a whole bowl of candy. More likely they did ditch the bowl somewhere, but still as a parent I would notice if my kid brought home a ton of the same candy and make them come back and apologize.
So, I'm not really too angry about it, cuz it was just an ugly bowl I rarely used, but I'm annoyed at the audacity of some people. That will for sure be the last time we leave Halloween candy just sitting on the porch. They had to go and ruin it for the other trick or treaters.
Friday, October 31, 2008
Happy Halloween everyone!!! I really enjoy Halloween because it is so fun to see all the fun costumes, get lots of candy, and watch my kids have fun. This year my boys are both knights and they love their costumes, especially the foam swords we got them lol. The costumes are a little small, but that's ok, they work. Hubby and I aren't dressing up. I haven't dressed up for Halloween since I was probably 16.
So are you all going trick or treating? Trunk or treating? Staying home to pass out candy? In the last few places we lived our church had trunk or treating, but here they don't. That made me sad, because it is just so much easier with little kids to do the trunk or treats. But they will have fun anyway going trick or treating. First we are going to Hubby's work this afternoon for a little office trick or treat. Then we will come home and take them out trick or treating in our neighborhood, and then to my parent's house so they can do a little more T or T there. I'm not sure if I'm going to go with them around our neighborhood, or stay home and pass out candy. It will depend on whether my sister will be home or not.
Hope everyone has a fun holiday and be safe out there if you are going trick or treating!
Thursday, October 30, 2008
What are you thankful for today?
I'm excited for Halloween tomorrow. Hubby's work is having trick or treating at 3, and we will take the boys trick or treating around the neighborhood too. I'm not sure if my sister will e home or not, she may be going to a party. If she isn't home I"ll be staying home to pass out candy while Nate takes the boys out. The boys are excited to get to wear their costumes again. Hopefully it's not too cold. If it's like the rest of this week has been it shouldn't be too bad.
Wednesday, October 29, 2008
Oh, and I am so mad, I forgot to bring my camera to get some cute pics of the boys and all the pumpkins, scarecrow, etc. :P I always forget my camera for cute stuff!
Tuesday, October 28, 2008
* Vacuum - have already gotten family room :)
* Sweep kitchen
* Take sister to an appointment
* Pack labor bag, I keep putting it off
I think that's it! Not really too much to do. I already got my family room picked up and vacuumed and need to vacuum the living room. Dishes always need to be done. I swear they dirty themselves. I do a load a day and am still somehow always behind. One of the last things I need to do to get ready for baby is pack my bag for when I go into labor (and probably a bag for whoever will take care of the boys) and I might get around to doing that today.
Monday, October 27, 2008
I have a yucky cold that is making me miserable. Especially at night, my throat feels like it's on fire from the cool, dry air. Jason also has a little cold, and Jakey might be coming down with it too. I went from telling the baby he could come out at any time now, to telling him to please wait until we are all well, lol. I'd prefer not to be sick with a newborn in the house.
We are going over to my parent's house later to carve pumpkins. That should be lots of fun. I only hate scooping out the seeds, eew! :P I bet the boys will enjoy it though. The messier the better to them lol.
Sunday, October 26, 2008
Friday, October 24, 2008
But at least I'm getting stuff done. I did dishes already (though I'll have to do another load later today too), and I finally folded all the baby blankets, burp cloths, etc that have been waiting to be put away. I got that all ready for baby. I am also going to get the crib set up as soon as I can find the screwdriver. I'm slowly getting things marked off my baby to-do list.

* Clean family room
* Fold laundry
* Put together crib
Our family room is trashed so I need to get the boys to help clean up, since it is mostly their mess. And I have a bunch of laundry sitting at the foot of my bed again so I really need to get that all put away. I also want to get the baby's crib put together today. It's time to start making sure everything is ready for when he decides to show up.
Monday, October 20, 2008
This pic doesn't even do justice to how chocolate-covered Jakey was lol. A few weeks ago we had my brother and his wife over for dinner and for dessert they brought a bunch of fruit to dip in dipping chocolate. It was soooo yummy! The boys had a lot of fun with it too, and ended up covered in chocolate, especially Jakey. He had it all over his body and we had to just throw them both in the shower to get them clean.

We will be back Sunday night, but the in-laws have Internet so I may or may not post this weekend. I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!
Thursday, October 16, 2008
I wanted to do a little craft with the boys today, but I have to go see if I have what I would need for it, otherwise I'll have to come up with something else. Oh yeah, and I need to fix a couch cushion in the playroom that the boys tore apart :P Silly kids.
Wednesday, October 15, 2008
Tuesday, October 14, 2008
So anyway, here is what I need to do today:
* Midwife Appointment at 9am
* Dishes, we are running out of clean ones
* Fold the mountain of laundry at the foot of the bed
* Clean up and vacuum family room
That all sounds doable :) Hopefully when we get back from my appointment I'll still be in a good mood and have the energy to get it all done quickly so I don't have to worry about it all day.
Monday, October 13, 2008
I had a scout meeting this morning that I almost forgot about because I wanted to lay down and sleep. But I did make it. I had to reschedule my midwife appointment that was this morning to tomorrow. And that's about as exciting as my week has been so far lol. :D
I'm off to make some lunch and then lay on the couch. Hope everyone has a great Monday!

Wednesday, October 08, 2008
I gathered a handful of leaves off the trees in our yard in different sizes and shapes. Then I had the boys gather a few of their already broken and de-papered crayons. Then we just needed a few sheets of paper and we were ready to get started.
I demonstrated to the boys how you can put a leaf under the paper and rub it with a crayon and it makes a colorful leaf appear on the paper. Once they understood the basic concept they got to work.
I had to help Jakey with his a little bit, but Jason just took off on his own. Although it only lasted about 5 minutes, it was a nice little activity that we could do together. We then hung the art on the fridge so they can show Daddy when he gets home.
At least my back isn't hurting as bad so far today, though that's not to say it won't hurt more later. I'm going to lay on the couch for a bit while the boys watch Super Why. Hopefully a little rest will give me some energy to do something with the boys later. I want to do some kind of craft project or something with them, something having to do with Autumn or Halloween. I'll have to see what I can come up with.
Tuesday, October 07, 2008
We are sitting here waiting for my little brother and his girlfriend to come over and watch Iron Man. They called two and a half hours ago saying they were coming over, but they are taking forever.
* A few loads of laundry
* Clean boys' room
* Pick up stuff in family room
The house really isn't too messy because the boys have been pretty good this last weekend. I finally got the half-dozen loads of laundry folded that were sitting at the foot of my bed for a week, that's a relief.
I haven't been sleeping well, so I'd really just prefer to lay on the couch and do nothing all day, but dishes and laundry don't usually do themselves lol. And Hubby won't be home until later since he's going golfing after work, so I won't get any help from him.
OK, time to stop procrastinating. Gotta get up. 1...2...3...
Hm, nope didn't work, I'm still here :) K, let's give it another try.
Monday, October 06, 2008
Have a great night and a wonderful week!
Sunday, October 05, 2008
This quote reminded me of the trip to Cancun that Hubby and I went on last year. We spent days just lounging around and doing whatever we wanted. We had no worries or responsibilities and could do whatever we wanted for a few precious days. It was the most relaxing vacation ever. I hope that at some point in the future we can take another trip like that. Of course with baby #3 on the way it probably won't be any time soon, but maybe in a few years. Maybe we can plan a cruise or a trip to Hawaii.
My brother Josh and his wife are coming over for dinner. We love hanging out with them, but don't get to very often anymore because they both work and Josh also goes to school, so they are pretty busy. Anyway, I better go see if the potatoes are ready to mash. Mmmm. Dinner is going to be yummy!

Yes, at the zoo I took a picture of your average squirrel. Why? Because I think they are cute :D Plus the kids like to see squirrels. And of course in a small town zoo a squirrel is just as exotic as most of the other animals they have lol.
Check out Camera Critters to see some more pics of animals every week.
