So the past week we have been computer less! It is like being in detox! At least once an hour I would think, I should check... oh yeah I can't do that... I should email.... oh I can't.... It got easier each day but I still felt like my right arm was cut off! At least I have great counselors in primary so I could pass the buck on a few things that needed to get done and I couldn't! Thanks to our wonderful Bishop we are back on line!!!! So what have we done in this week of being computer less...
For St. Patty's day we had our usual green dinner. I don't have pictures sorry! But we had guacamole chips, green wiener wraps, green jello, cabbage. I know weird combo's but lately the tummy is getting what the tummy wants! I made Malt-O-Meal cereal for the girls in the morning and added a little green food coloring just for fun. Amelia thought it was fun. Hayden took one look and said Yucky! She only ate her toast! I just had to not look while I ate because it looked like we were eating play dough! MMMM!
Larry and I celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary on the 20th! We went away for 2 nights and 3 days with the wonderful blessing of my mom coming and staying with the kids!! What a blessing. We couldn't have gone with out her. It was so relaxing to not hurry, not unload a pack of kids each time we went somewhere and just be footloose and care free. But there is always that time where you think, "if the kids were here they would love this!" But the next minute you are walking into a shop full of tiny blown glass things and you think, "if the kids were here I couldn't come in here with out HAVING to buy something!" We went and saw a movie in the middle of the day on Friday. We saw "Knowing!" It was better then I thought it was going to be and it was at the top of my list on what I wanted to see!!! We walked on the beach and found some killer deals at the outlet mall in Lincoln City! It was very restful! Anyway It was wonderful to spend so much time with the man I love!!! It is spring break now and I am trying to just keep the kids busy. I give them a few jobs each day, something fun to do and hope for the best. It has been raining all week so it is hard to say go out side and play!!!! Oh how I wish I could! They are being pretty good though I can't complain. I may reward them by taking them to go see the new movie "Monsters VS Aliens" on Friday. We only take our kids to the movies once every 2 years or so, so they will think this is an amazing treat! We will see how worn out I am on Friday! On the fun side of things I guess the word is getting around fairly quickly that we are expecting baby number 5. We weren't going to really make big announcements for another week or two because of my high miscarriage rate but enough people know now we might as well make it public knowledge anyway for those who don't know. We are about 11 weeks along. I am technically due October 16th. I have gone 3 weeks early every time (I take that back Brock was 2 weeks early not because he wasn't trying to come earlier my DR MADE him wait!) Anyway we are planning the last week of September most likely! This is perfect for me and I am excited about the timing! I think Heavenly Father knew what was going to work best for me and my family! As in right after school starts, long enough before Primary activity and primary Program stuff that we should be ready to go!!! Our kids are all very excited! They had been asking for another baby and are all voting on boy vs girl baby. We won't be finding out before hand so they will get to be surprised!
The only other new things right now are Amelia is in Gymnastics. I will post pictures next week when she has her next session. She is loving it!!! She also went and got all caught up on shots today so that she could get registered for Kindergarten. She had to get 5 shots and she hardly whimpered! What a brave brave girl!!! The doctor was very impressed!!! I asked her afterwards, "so are Hayden's bites worse then shots?" She told me that Hayden's bites are worse then the shots! (Hayden is a biter all though it is getting much better! We go weeks with out incident now instead of a day or hours!)
Brock's 1st grade teacher had her baby 2 weeks ago and won't be back for the rest of the year. He has a great sub who was Ethan's 2nd grade teacher. We love her and we were sad when she retired but are glad she can fill in in this capacity! We made her a fun present to put pictures of her baby in. She loved it!
Ethan and I finished the second Harry Potter book last night and were so excited we ran to the Bevan's for the 3rd! We are hooked!
Hayden is as cute as ever and quite the entertainer! She makes us all laugh daily!
My kids had a wonderful time with grandma. She came with lots of crafts to do with them. They were all so excited to show us the fun things they had made, and tell us the fun things they did. They made pizza's with her, painted and all kinds of fun things! Thanks Grandma!!!!
