So much to do

There are many changes going on in my family right now.

    15 weeks pregnant with our 4th baby....due in November. We don't want to find out the sex of the baby this time :)  Excited to be a family of 6.

    Packing up my house and moving to WYOMING!!!! Yes Wyoming! In 3 weeks!

That's 20 hours away from my home!

    The place I grew up

    All my family

    My friends

    My husband is a pastor and has taken a church out there. I am excited for this new chapter in our lives but at the same time very scared. I have lived in the same house for about 17 years. 10 with my parents then my husband and I moved back into that house 7 years ago.

    I told God I would go anywhere He wants us. I'm just really going to miss my parents being 5 minutes down the road. This will be a big change but I believe it is going to be so good for my family. The best place to be is where God wants you to be.

Just a quick update.

I feel like I have been on an emotional roller coaster this past month.

     Just between us ladies,

          I have had 4, yes 4! periods in the past two months. My hormones are out of control!
I don't know what's going on but man it has taken its toll on my body.

But on a less personal note lol

We went out to Rhode Island this past month and had a blast! I really like the area, it's fun and cute and well I pretty much loved everything about it :)

  Got to spend tons of time with my sis-in-law, brother, and niece. Also a friend who I hadn't see in years just moved about an hour and half from there about 2 months ago. She came over for the day and I got to meet her lil cutie Vance. I know she is incredibly home sick and lonely being in a new place so it was great for her to get to come see familiar faces. It's awesome how our wonderful God works things out when we need it most.

So Jan. was a pretty fun month hoping for great things in Feb. (like decluttering my whole house)

Hello again

There is going to be some updating done to this blog in the near future

I'll be cleaning it up a little, probably changing the background, and POSTING MORE!!!

              But for now update on life.....

I see I haven't posted since last January! (YIKES)   Much has gone on this last year. My baby boy turned one in Nov. which was such a fun birthday.  We took a couple trips last summer for Jeremy to preach at VBS and meetings.

We got to spend a lot of time last year together as a family. Oh yeah haha Jeremy was also ordained as a pastor last year so he is officially Pastor Jeremy :)

Baby updates: I know our track record is when your babies turn one we get pregnant with the next, BUT my pregnancy with Liam was, well......heavy? tiring? painful?  I mean come on he was 11 pounds at birth! I had many many hip problems through out those months and could hardly walk or sit by the end without being in much pain :(

 So I told my husband, for my health, I needed to lose a great deal of weight before getting pregnant again. I am getting older and I want a happy pregnancy not a painful one. I can't be pushing 230 pounds by the end of the next preg. my body can't handle being that big. And I grow BIG babies <3 p="p">
I lost 13lbs but over Christmas gained most of that back :( but I am happy to say I have lost 6lbs since Christmas so I'm off to a good start.

My goal is to be at a healthy weight by the end of February so I can get pregnant in March.

We are very excited for 2013, we are hoping to have big changes in our family this year, and can't wait to see what God brings our way.

We went to Pizza Hut yesterday after church with my parents and some friends. We were all just eating and chatting and a song came on. I noticed right away the song was one that was very popular when I was in high-school.  I don't know the name of the song or even who sang it. I didn't listen to that music in school, but oddly enough I knew EVERY word.

Today I had the song stuck in my head and can't stop humming it. It's kind of disturbing how, with out me noticing, that song has been burned into my memory ( with so many others) and 10 years later I still know all the words.

Lyrics haven't gotten any more appropriate and yet you walk into any store or restaurant and that music is playing. Your mind is memorizing it with out you even noticing. What songs are MY children going to learn? I'm sure ones I don't approve of.

It's sad really.

It's raining, it's pouring...

I'm NEVER letting my kids go around other kids again!!!

Okay, Okay, I know that I can't keep my kids away from friends. I am just very tired right now.

Last week we had VBS and Sophia absolutely loved every minute of it. She came home singing new songs, and asking me to sing her new songs, that unfortunately I don't know the words to (but I will find out the words). 
In the morning during the young kids VBS Olivia and I stayed home and watched Erika's two youngest children so that she could help at church. Oh we loved having Hadassah, and John over to play!

During the day and evenings my mom watched my children because Jeremy runs the youth group and we had activities for them too!! Here is a short list of crazy things I did last week.

Hiked Sugarloaf mountain
Hiked Hogsback Mountain (in the rain)
Played big ball volleyball
Stayed up past midnight every night! lol
Caught a nasty cold,

Hey that's a lot for a 25weeks pregnant lady. But back to my kids.....

VBS was over and the mission group that came to help had left.  Sunday morning I noticed my girls had weird blisters on their feet and hands. We took them in and they both had hand, foot and mouth virus, and bad! It had actually started forming on their bottoms too. So I have two little ladies with break outs on their hands, feet, mouths, and bottoms :(

Olivia (as usual) got the cold I have right away, and today Sophia woke up with it. And to top things off.....Olivia might have ringworm...uuggghhh I feel bad for my poor husband who gets up early for work. He isn't sleeping well because we are all coughing all night. But I am grateful for how he takes care of us when he gets home and is super exhausted.

I'm glad this week has been a little cooler and rainy because I would be very bummed if it was nice out and we had to stay indoors. My dishes and laundry and piling up but that's okay, there is plenty of time for that later.
 Hopefully by the end of this week we will all be healthy again.

It's been a while....and my belly is starting to get big! People keep asking if I'm sure it isn't twins...YES I'm sure it's NOT twins. But we did find out we are having a boy, YAY!!! He was weighing big at 20 weeks, which is normal for my pregnancies. Sophia was 9 and half lbs. and Olivia was almost 9 lbs. So yes this is probably going to be one big boy!!

Jeremy is very excited to be having a son. He isn't going to know what to do with a boy around though lol. He is such a good daddy to our girls, I don't know how many people have said how wonderful of a dad he is to his girls, but it has been a lot!

I'm trying to not buy too much new stuff (which is hard) but I have been trying to buy second hand. I'm selling a bunch of stuff I have that is just cluttering our house so that I can buy some boy stuff.

We are still stuck on names for this lil boy :)
