Boys school pictures

I just wanted to post the boys school picture. i have been meaning to post them and just haven't done it until now.

Cade was so proud of his picture! He said the photographer called him spike which he thought was really funny. This will also be in the yearbook!

Lane was so excited to show me. I was really nervous when I opened the package, I ended up trying not to laugh. the expression on his face is "just take it already!" LOL!!

Thanksgiving was a good day. We went to rick and glennas and ate awesome food and got to spend time with family. I really enjoyed it. We came home and vegged! We all put on pjs and played some wii. i got some stuff written in cades baby book and in my pregnant journal.

Friday... I didn't sleep very good. I kept dreaming of walmart and all the deals. I wasn't going to go, I didnt' want to deal with a crowd. But my brother called at 7 to ask me a question and it seemed like he was having fun. at 7:30 Lane woke up so we went to walmart. I just kept him in his pjs. it was fun. I found a lot of movies and got a few coats for the boys, toys for christmas, shirts, pjs. we stayed for a few hours and then brought some donuts home. i kept busy all day. I did some photography stuff (business side and ordered a huge order : ) ) I finished the last pillow for the babies room, i got pictures in a frame to hang up in the babies room, went and got lunch, and made supper. I think I finally sat down around 9:30 p.m. to relax. Chad was lazy bones today - he seriously didn't move off the couch!!! When the boys feel asleep (all of them) I unloaded the car and started wrapping presents. i stayed up till 3:30 a.m.!! it felt nice not to have anyone talking and just being by myself. The kitty even came and snuggled with me.

Saturday... 8 a.m. we got up, ate breakfast, i finished ordering christmas stuff and a rug for the babies room, a new bra for me, trying to get pictures all ready to order (got an order today), fixed lunch, and helped chad with the tile. we are taking a break now and I know i needed to do an update. it was fun doing the tile because the boys were helping. : ) happy family time - everything went by really fast. We ran out of spacers so chad went to see if lumber mart had any. i need to take a shower!! and i need to take a nap!!

Christmas shopping is almost to an end. I just have to figure out what to get granny and peep, and the boys. Chad and I decided not to do presents for eachother this year. that is stress off me since he is pretty tough to get stuff for!

Next week is one busy week!! Monday i meet with the speech therapist to see what cade scored on his test, tuesday i take pictures of a new client, wednesday sorority, Thursday Orthodontist appt, Friday - get ready for saturday, Saturday friends christmas party/zaines bday. then monday bunco. I have to get the new clients pictures done and Lily's pictures done so they can order christmas cards, i have to take my family picture, Sassin family picture and Mull family picture and get those done in the next couple of weeks so we can print those off for christmas cards! Oh and it is time to take maternity shots! i'm hoping that after christmas things will slow down a little. it seems like i have been going going going!!

Chad is saying he is ready for some help so better go!!

Thursday, November 27, 2008

Forgot to mention...On tuesday night when I layed down for bed baby boy was active. He is getting so strong!! You could actually feel his foot or hand coming out of my stomach. Sometimes he throughs off my balance!! Chad was cracking up! He finally kicked when cades hand was on but cade said he didn't feel him. : ( i can't wait until the boys can feel him kick. Can you believe he is 3 lbs!! Getting so big and you can tell on me!!! : ) Not too much longer, seems like it has gone by so fast!!
tuesday.. I never got my nap. I don't know what the deal was. I did fall asleep and then the phone rang 2 times in a row. I couldn't go back to sleep. Lane was energetic! The boys were crazy so after calling grandpa roger and wishing him a happy birthday I kicked the boys outside. I went out there too, it was pretty nice. I picked up the yard (or what I could clean up). It is such a mess but looks better than it did. i also got christmas stuff out. Chad came out when I was dragging a box to the house. He is always lecturing me! but if I want to get it done I have to start it, it is easier for him too. We got all the christmas stuff in the house and chad started playing with the boys. we decided to venture out into the world!! We had a family date night. The boys were excited to call it a date. We all got cleaned up and went and ate at cacktus jacks. The boys were really good. After eating we went and watched madagascar 2. Lane fell asleep early on, on me, so i couldn't really move around. Cade enjoyed it. It was a cute movie but have seen better. Lane was still sleeping when we got home. Cade got ready for bed and wanted to do an activity. He got these noodles (diana and kevin) that he got for his birthday. You can create dinosaurs and whatever else you can imagine. He really enjoyed doing that. He actually tucked himself in bed.

Wed... Got up and ate breakfast then got started on christmas stuff. The boys really enjoyed it and so did i. Chad was in and out so we let him do a few, especially the star. I decided to dye my hair. I was feeling kind of trailer trash with my hair so blonde and bad roots. So I did a dark color. After I did the base we ate lunch and I got lane to go to sleep. I made an appt. with my new highlighter Heidi. LOL!! Cade really wanted to go to walmart (i needed a few things) and spend his birthday money. So Cade and I went to walmart. The first thing he wanted to do was get Lane something. He said he wanted to get him a prize to make him happy (Lane was pretty cranky) and because he loved him thiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiisssssssssss much (stretching his arms out). I asked if he knew what he wanted to get him, without hessitation he said a dinosaur. I'm so proud of him! We went to walmart and got the things i needed and then went to the toys. He found a remote control dinosaur for Lane and he picked out a hot wheels stunt thing (you add several on to eachother) and a new car. I was impressed with his selection. The car thing you have to connect it all which I like for him to do things like that. I dropped everything off and went to heidi's. She put highlights in my hair for me (even though she was stressing out). I wasn't worried and she did a good job. The dark hair is kind of weird but I will get use to it. Plus i like it better than my hair all bleached out! Chad keeps complimenting it. Last night we went by his dads house and then went and picked up pizza for dinner. Cade slept the whole time!! We got home, put in a movie ate pizza and the boys fell asleep on me on the couch. Then we went to bed.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING... The boys woke up about 8! That is pretty awesome. I'm still trying to get fully awake, and chad is still sleeping. The boys are playing and waiting for cereal. : ) i need to bake a green bean casserole for the winner in sorority and make red cabbage apple salad for thanksgiving at rick and glenna's. I guess I better get off here and start getting somethings done. : )

I forgot to mention something about thanksgiving. I did so much cutting on things for three days. Dinner was served everything cleaned up and we decided to do cade bday pumpkin pie. Well he was asking for his third piece so i was cutting him one with a butter knife and cut my finger pretty deep! Really with a butter knife. Guess I will be more careful now! : )

Monday...I took the boys to school and went by walmart, i think i mentioned that. Came home did some stuff on here and took a shower. I went and got the boys. Rick and Trever came over for leftovers. After cleaning up that mess I finally sat down for a little bit. I was hurting pretty good for some reason. Lane and I layed on the couch. He fell asleep and I really wanted too. I set the timer just in case I did. I had a dentist appt. that i didn't want to miss. I told cade after my appt. we would go get garrett. So he kept asking and telling me that I was late for my appt. Since Lane was asleep he stayed home with daddy and Cade came with me. He was really good and I'm glad he went because he has an appt in a few weeks and I want him to be brave for Lane. I got my teeth clean and they said I did a good job. : ) Never been told that before. There are things that need to be fixed but they have needed to be for awhile. One of the things is crowns - which my other dentist messed up and said they would replace it but never did! After my appt. we went and got garrett. When we got home I started cleaning, made chili and cornbread, iced cupcakes got table situated. It was pretty crowded in my house but it was fun to be around everyone. The kids were good (except for cade who i had to get on to a few times and he is the only one that started crying at one point!) Everyone enjoyed the chili (some of the kids couldn't eat it because of the spicyness). I had made a cheese ball for thanksgiving that didn't get eaten. But no problem with this crowd! Everyone loves heidi's famous cheese ball!! There is just a little bit left which will be good for me a snack. : ) The kids played and then we did presents. After presents we did cake and ice cream and then every kids favorite the pinata. I got one that you pull the string so we just did it inside. We put halloween candy and some other stuff in there. The kids were pretty happy and it was fun watching them. Everyone left close to 8 which is what I was thinking on time. I cleaned up a little while the boys got shoes on and we took garrett home. I came home cleaned up a little more (living room needed sweeping since there was enough cornbread on the floor to feed and army, LOL, not really that much). We were all tired, cade brushed his teeth and went to bed before anyone. We all fell asleep around 9:30. The party was fun and I must say we have the best friends in the world!

I need to unload and load the dishwasher then the house is clean again. I need to do more organizing but really don't want too. I'm thinking about getting christmas stuff out! I'm so excited. But I think i will wait until tomorrow since the boys will be out of school we can make an activity out of it. Plus I think I may just take a nap today!!

Friday was a good day. I took Cade to school and came home. Lane and i started baking. He was a huge help. And I'm not even kidding. He put away the clean dishes, made his first pecan pie (he loved cracking the eggs) and wiped the bottom cabinet out for me. Rick came over and asked if he could help with anything. I didn't have anything so he took Lane for a few hours (which was a huge help) and I got some nice, quiet fun time cooking! I got most of it done before cade got out of school. I only had deviled eggs to make (already had them boiled). Chad went and got Cade from school. I know cade loved that but he soon found out that lane was with grandpa and wasn't happy. He really wanted to be with them. Rick and Lane showed up around noon with lunch! After lunch I took it easy and slowly got some stuff cleaned. Sally and Lily got here around 10.

Saturday, Chad woke up early and went deer hunting with rick and trever. I woke up around 7 and got the turkey going. Not long after sally and all the kids were up. Sally and I got everything done, cleaned up, table set up before noon. It was pretty easy going morning, we didn't have to rush around. I even got a shower. : ) Rick, Glenna and Trev came over a little after noon. We had tons of food!!! turkey, dressing, corn on cob, mashed potatoes, gravy (2 different kinds), red cabbage apple salad, pea salad (the one thing that was nasty!), reg. salad, ham, rolls, green been casserole, sweet potatoe casserole, deviled eggs, rice and broc. casserole, 2 pumpkin pies, 2 pecan pies, pumpkin roll, fruit salad, (i think that is everything). It was def. a feast! and i'm still enjoying it!!! We cleaned up and opened presents. Cade got everything he wanted and some. He got a transformer from rick and glenna that he won't put down!!! he has been tranforming that thing!! He also got Wall-e, kung fu panda, operation, transformer underwear (he really wanted), 2 ben ten guys, lincoln logs, mario shirt, balls and a bat, I think we got him something else but i can't think of it!! The rest of the days we just vegged. Chad went back out with his dad and brother.

Sunday, we were tired!!! Chad went deer hunting. We all got around here and headed to walmart to get a few things for pictures. When we got back we took pictures of the kids and lily. The scene was what we wanted but the kids were crazy!! we will hopefully of one good one out of the bunch. Sally and Lily left around 3. The boys played with lincoln logs (chad came home and left again). I got out some blocks and little animals for them to build more stuff. While they were doing that i got in the shower! The boys soon followed which was good because cade really needed one!! We all got our pjs on (4 p.m.) and started building with the blocks. they had built a ranch with the lincoln logs and then we built a zoo. After we got that all cleaned up we made cupcakes. I ordered some pictures, did the checkbook, made a grocery list. Cade wanted cereal in a cup for supper so he ate that. Lane was asleep before 5:30 - I moved him in his bed and he didn't wake up until 6:50 this morning! Cade and I sat on the couch, ate supper and watched spiderman. I also did some laundry and picked up the kitchen. We all went to be around 8:30!

Tonight we are having cade's bday party with friends. I'm making a big thing of white chili and cornbread. We will have cupcakes and a pinata. The kids can just play. I have a dentist appt. at 2:30 today so I think I will go get Cade friend garrett when i get done. Then they can have some time together before a bunch of other kids show up. : ) I have already been to walmart but forgot bowls for the chili!! So i need to jump in the shower, run to walmart and go get the boys. i have an hour to do all that so better go!!

i have been getting ready for thanksgiving at my house this weekend. yesterday i made 2 pumpkin rolls (one is already eaten) and boiled, diced some eggs. we had a playdate at the park. It was 80 degrees!! that was nice. the boys were pretty tired when we got home. Chads pager kept going off! can't wait until he gets to give it to someone else.

today i went to walmart to get the last minute stuff. I will be doing some baking and doing the cold stuff tomorrow. I also made covers for the baskets in the baby's room. Not too proud of them! Oh well! the boys had mothers day out today. cade took cookies, which he was really excited about! seems like on thursdays all i do is run around drop and pick up kids! I did get one pillow stuffed and sewed. i would have finished the last one but ran out of stuffing. Chad hung up mirrors today. Wahoo!!! we have been looking into a hand held one for a couple of weeks - sorry to all those who had to look at me. LOL!! i got somethings mailed off today!

The other day I got an addition to my baby boy joy folder. : )

I have a lady that has been trying to get ahold of me. she wants pictures of her kids before the holiday. it is so hectic right now. why do people wait until the last minute to schedule something. It wouldn't be bad except I'm pretty sure she wants pictures printed before christmas. I did call her today and left a message. She tried back and missed me (went and picked up the boys). I will call her tomorrow. I do need the cash! There has been a lot of people wanting pictures (some out of town). I just can't do out of town right now. It is too much work! I am flattered and excited that new and old clients are wanting pictures though. : )

I guess I better go finish cleaning up kitchen, have to give boys a shower (no bathtub right now) and get them to bed. i have had material to make boys pjs. I told cade i would try and get his transformer pjs done before his birthday. : ( Of course I have to get Lanes done too. My plan is get boys in bed and cut out material!! maybe I can get it done tomorrow sometime! I feel like i'm getting sick!! My head is achy and my throat is sore. I don't want to get sick. I'm really excited about making all this food!! : )

Better go!!

Tuesday, November 18, 2008

I took pictures on Saturday. Still trying to figure out my new stuff. I got some good ones but i have done better!!

Sunday... Chad and I made it a point to do something special with the boys. We walked, the boys rode bikes to the park. Then they road fast and hard on the tennis courts. The Furnish's showed up which was a good suprise. The boys were really excited! Needless to say my boys were warn out! they fell asleep before 7:30. I thought why- awesome. Not exactly! They both kept waking up throughout the night. Lane ended up in bed with us. Oh well, Chad and I got to spend some quality time together.

Monday...hmmmm, i cleaned, laundry, dropped and picked up boys. Lane took a nap, cade painted a dinosaur, lane woke up painted his dinosaur. Chad and lane left to go get tile saw from rick (and picked up supper). I took Cades 5 year pictuers. I will post the collage in the next few days. He is so excited about it! The boys went to bed and Chad and I layed tile! The floor is down! The baby moved around a lot! He had so much to do!

Tuesday...Chad worked a lot today. He didn't come out of his hole for an afternoon break. He got off late, ate supper and went back to work!! I sure don't like the pager!!! He didn't get to do any work on the bathroom. I went to the store and bought everything but produce for thanksgiving dinner! I'm excited about doing it all - not too excited about the price (but hopefully we will have leftovers). : ) Lane and I fell asleep on the couch (I didn't mean to but I was tired). Then we just lounged! I picked up but didn't do any heavy cleaning or organizing!! : ) I did do bills! that is always a blast!

Cade is so excited about his birthday!! We are doing cookies for school on Friday, Pumpkin pie on saturday and Monday - cupcakes and ice cream. I still can't believe he is turning 5!!!

Pregnancy is going great. Everything is going smoothly. Seems a little harder than Cade's but I also have 2 boys to take care of. Lane is still the most uncomfortable pregnancy. : ) I just entered my third trimester!!

Better get off here and spend some time with chad before bedtime!

Sunday, November 16, 2008

I'm trying to remember everything. I know for sure I organized something because I'm always doing that!!

I didn't mention something in the last blog. When I got back from Mamaw's house there was a folder in the mailbox. It is a folder for the baby. It said it is time to get excited, really excited. For me to check my mailbox from time to time and put the things in the folder. So if there is anytime I'm sad for having a boy I can look back and be happy again. It is from the Baby Boy Joy Advocate!! It is so sweet and makes me smile to have such wonderful and thoughtful friends!!

I haven't been having a hard time with having a boy just been really emotional. And it seems like friends keep suprising me with stuff. Not things they have bought me but a card in the mail, a card through email just little things. I do have the best friends ever in the whole world!!

We went to amarillo and got ALL the stuff we needed to finish up what has been started. : ) It was ALOT!! Seems like when we go to amarillo we only have time to go to Lowes. We are in there for at least 2 hours if not more. The boys were pretty good - for not being able to do much. We did go eat at chili's. I figured since we are somewhere that we can eat someting different why not do it! We didn't get back until almost 10. We were all pretty tired.

Cade came home on friday with a little stuffed dinosaur that he got from school. He got a prize the day before so I started asking him questions. I found out that he got it from his new teacher. He leaves his classroom with the new teacher and then goes back. He started speech therapy or at least getting checked out. I'm suprised his teacher didn't tell me but oh well cade did. He really likes the new teacher and they talk about different stuff and helps him with his words. : )

i took pictures yesterday. Chad helped me put all my new stuff together and try to figure out lighting. The night before I cleaned the garage and then started putting my lighting up. It said to look at instruction that was not in the box!! I got pretty frustrated but chad came and rescued me. While helping me he thought he would play a trick. He had to get a razor blade and shave off a little bit off the lighting so we could attach it, all i heard was "oh my gosh" i turned around his hand was bleeding and shaking!! I followed him into the kitchen to help him and he looked at me and said it is just ketchup!!!!!!! Yes, i hit him after I knew it was true!! I wanted to knock his head off! It scared me so much I cried. What a terd!!! It still isn't funny but he sure thought it was. And after his week he needed a good laugh, i guess even if it was at my expense.

My pictures went well. the family was nice, I knew two of the three and didnt' realize it until they showed up. I don't know if they know me though. Well the boy doesn't. The husband knows Chad though. They were really fun. The pictures turned out except when I got to the black background!! I'm having to do a lot of work with those!! GGRRRR!!

Cade and I went to walmart and bought more stuffing so I can finish the pillows. I made a lot of them and didn't realize until now!! I have two more pillows to stuff and sew and then I will be done. Cade has been helping me stuff the pillows. I do want to cover the trash can in fabric but they dont have the fabric I want. So I don't know. The curtains are fixed and all done!! I still need to order that laptop, just need to wait a little bit and do some research. I wanted to get a mac but dang - they are expensive!! So I need Chad to help me research the next best thing. I'm ready to get the desk out of here.

Chad did a lot of work on the bathroom yesterday! That boy is working so hard. There were two layers of floor on top of the subfloor - so he got that all off, installed the bathtub, scraped the ceiling, and installed the backerboard on the floor. His goal was to be able to start tile and work on it this week. I think he can do it as long as the pager isn't too bad. The bathroom is already looking clean.

Sally and Lily are coming this weekend. She really wanted to come for Cades bday (even though I didn't have anything planned). We decided to have our thanksgiving then. I found out Trev will be here on Friday(to go deer hunting), so I'm inviting Rick, Glenna, and Trev over for thanksgiving and a little celebration for Cade. We are having a little thing for him on Monday too with some kids - since he is all excited to have friends over. I bought a turkey yesterday to get it thawed out. I need to get my list together for all the other stuff!! I also need to make Cade bday cookies for school and a cake for him. Maybe I can do a pie and then Monday have cupcakes. I bet he would go for that.

i think that is everything!

Alot has happend since I last posted.
I went to my mamaws house and we had a great time. I was pretty tired but got to be around my family. My cousin was in town so everyone went over to my aunts house (including sally and Lily). Everyone was there except for chad, Jerry and my dad. The boys had a blast.

Chad had the bathroom finished when I got home. It is pretty nice. I have gotten towels, a hamper and a hanging thing in the shower. Sure was hard to take a shower with all the shampoo and stuff on the floor. I'm getting way to big to have to bend over. LOL!! Chad started demolition on the main bathroom on Monday!! It is Thursday and everything is out of there. He is doing such a great job. The bathroom is nasty!!! Glad I didn't know all that when I moved in. : )

Newly remodeled bathroom

Monday, I had a doctors appointment. I had my sugar test. They have changed the drink, it taste more like sprite. Everything is great - sugar level normal, baby's heartbeat 144. I have been eating so much lately. It seems like a just can't get full! : ) The cravings are still vanilla coke and coney, tots from sonic!! Good thing sonic is just up the road. LOL!!

I had bunco on monday. I won $20!!! That is my second time to win. I was so excited!! : ) It is so much fun getting with all those ladies and I like them all. : ) It was at heidi's house this time.
She fixed some good stuff. She made her famous cheese ball - IT IS EVIL!!! : )

I got my camera in on tuesday but haven't been able to play with it very much. I have been busy organizing (i know i was pretty caught up until I had to find places for all the stuff that was in the big bathroom). I'm excited to be able to play with it!! it will be tomorrow before I can - and have too because i have pictures on saturday!

Yesterday (wednesday), I made curtains for the baby's room. I ran out of ribbon to finish and so did walmart! So one curtain isn't done yet (but won't take long to finish). I think I like them. Makes the room more babyish. Heidi came over and the boys played. While they were playing she helped (pretty much did it) hung up pictures. WAHOO!! Starting to look like a home up in here. : ) Last night I decided to wrap the baby's letters in fabric and quickly decided I don't have the patience!!! I had bought some paint for the boys to paint their brother a picture, so I used the same paint and painted the letters. Right now they are just solid different colors. I will prob. keep them that way. I have pillows and 2 liners to do now. the pillows won't take long. I'm excited to do them though!! but i can't right now too much going on!! I am glad I got the curtains pretty much done!!

Today, chad is taking half day off and we are road triping it to amarillo. We are getting everything we need to finish the house (except for kitchen)!! Rick and Glenna let us borrow their truck so we can try to get everything! We have some pretty big things to get and lots of stuff!! i'm excited though!! Hopefully the boys will be good. We need to pack a fun bag for them. It is going to be a long day but fun. I will def. be ready to lay down tonight!!

My back has been achy lately. It never bothered me when I was pregnant with the boys but this time around - yep. This morning I took cade to school in Glenna's truck - it has butt warmers!! I turned on the butt warmer and AAAAHHHHH! Not only did it help warm me up but it felt so good on my lower back!

Cade is so excited for his birthday. I got all the stuff for him. The only thing is, yesterday he said He was so excited to have his friends over!! I wasn't going to do that!! So I need to do a special evening and invite friends over for him. the week after his bday we can do something during the week for him. His face is almost cleared up from his fall. : )

Thursday, November 6, 2008

Our front plate - Chad wanted OU and I wanted Hogs so we met in the middle. LOL!
The pictures the boys painted for their baby brother. Lanes is the one on the left and Cades is on the right (transformer).

Cade took this picture of me yesterday (almost 27 weeks)

Chad got the shower drain all hooked up. He has taken two showers in it already.

Sorority was fun last night. We ate baked potatoes with lots of toppings. All I can say is Yummy!!! I finally got to give stephanie and tyler their wedding gift!!

Today, I finished my cousins sr. pictures and my nephews pictures. I'm caught up right now. : )

(Baby Ryan - Cousin)

Owen - newphew

They are so cute!! I love them SO MUCH!

Will - Nephew

I love being able to take pictures of people I love!! I posted more pictures on my website so check it out. They are of pics I have taken the past month.

I'm excited to go see mamaw this weekend. : ) I get to see sally and miss priss (lily)!

There isn't much else going on.

I was craving coney and vanilla coke so that is what I got chad and i for lunch!! Heidi stopped by for a second and got to look at the house. She said it is looking good and that she is jealous of the bathroom. : ) that will make chad feel good. He has been working so hard!

Wednesday, November 5, 2008

I was nervous about yesterday (voting). I know who I wanted (even though I wasn't thrilled about either candidates) and felt like was a Godly man. My fears came true last night when the winner was announced. I sure hope that I'm not right about Obama. I feel like with him being the president puts another notch to when Jesus comes. I'm not ready for that. I know it will be a blessing for me to be with Jesus but I'm selfish and want to enjoy the blessings (my babies) He has given to me now. I cried last night and when I got in bed. I just prayed. Wasn't sure how or what to pray so I just prayed that God would lead this country! That is all that matters! It scares me that there so many democrats in charge - do to the fact that most of them are pro choice.

Other than the election - I went to walmart, to vote, go get the boys. The boys did an art project for me after lunch. I had gotten canvas's and paint to match the babies room. The boys painted whatever they wanted for their baby brother. So I have two pictures to hang on the wall that was made with love from this babys big bro's. : ) Cade also had homework to do so we did that. He had to glue whatever he wanted to a turkey. i had gotten a few things from walmart and he really liked those so that is what he did. I should have taken a picture so I could post it on here. It is so funny and cute! Everytime I look at it, it made me smile. : ) The boys played outside and I fixed supper and cleaned up.

Chad got the vanity/sink all done. All the plumbing is connected. Today he is doing the drain for the shower and hopefully the toilet.

I have sorority tonight. It will be nice to get away from the boys (all) for a little while. Sounds harsh, but I get really stressed and irritated at night. All my patience are gone. Pregnancy - got to love everything about it. LOL! It is my group to bring supper. So we are doing baked potatoes with all the toppings. I think it will be really good. We also need to bring a recipe to share. that is a hard one for me!! I think I'm bringing two! LOL! Even that is hard!

I got some christmas presents wrapped (in gift bags). They don't have christmas wrapping paper out so I'm waiting on that so I can finish wrapping the gifts I do have. I have a few more to get and one of them is so HARD!!! Don't have a clue!!

Oh I got on the computer today to type in all the house expenses that we have gotten (remodel). I had a document started so just need to put the rest of the reciepts in. Well guess what, when the computer crashed it erased that document - which I have no clue what was all on there!! So now we don't know how much it is costing!!!! GGGGRRRRR. I have a love hate relationship with computers!! LOL!

I started my baby shower list. I'm nervous I'm forgetting someone! And then those I invited, I don't want them to feel like they have to get us something. We don't need a whole lot of things. Mainly just essentials (diapers, soap, washcloths, a few towels, lotion, baby powder...) Hopefully we won't need formula!! I'm trying the breastfeeding again. I have an awesome support group now and they have told me they will be here for me. So with their tough love I'm hoping we can acheive it!! : )

I better go think of things I need to do. Oh I got caught up on laundry yesterday. Prob. could do a load from yesterday! But glad to have that done!

We (little guys and I) are also going to my mamaws this weekend. I wanted to go see her before I got to far a long. Hopefully chad can make a trip to amarillo and get the finishing stuff for the parts of the house we have done.

Chad finally got the shower up yesterday!! poor guy!! he had a pretty rough time with that project!!! Glad that part is over - he was about to drive himself crazy!!! I got the bathroom painted (light gray), FINALLY!! We only had to paint it three times to find the right color!!! Chad is putting in the vanity today! we still have a little ways to go though. It is looking really nice!!! I'm hoping we can go to amarillo this weekend and get trim, crown molding and anything else that we need to finish up the little touches.

I have been working like crazy. I have 50 things going on at one time. It has been crazy. I did get baby clothes washed! They had stains on them from being packed away and it took me 2 days to get 0-6 mth clothes done. The boys helped me and had a great time doing it. They actually did help me out!! : ) The baby room is starting to look like a baby room. I just need to get a laptop now and get this ugly big desk out of here! : ) and of course do the finishing stuff for walls and window. I did picture orders today - got them ready to handout. I didn't receive some, some looked like crap so i needed to fix them.

Last night I cleaned floors, so now they look pretty nice. I'm constantly cleaning and can't seem to stay caught up. I guess that is life. I have been feeling good about the organizing part, except for the garage!! : ) That place is a mess!!

Chad swept the outside patio. the boys had sand all over it and it would get tracked in everytime someone would go in and out. He also went through the wagon and got rid of some stuff (has all the outside toys in it). We are slowly getting there!!!

This week I am hoping to do one more coat of paint on the boys wall. Hopefully chad will be ready to do that floor soon. : ) Would be nice just to have the main bathroom and kitchen left to do. i can't wait to get the trim and crown molding all put up!!

I got a few of my camera stuff in today. I'm getting excited to actually get my new camera!!!

I better go, I know that there is something else I need to be doing then being on here!!!

i just posted but after i did we took a picture. the boys, especially lane, have enjoyed wearing my fuzzy socks. all mine are girl colors so i got some blue ones yesterday so the boys won't look as funny. Lane and i love these socks!!!
I ordered photography stuff on friday!! i'm excited to get it all in!!

Halloween was fun. Cade wore his costume to school and stayed in it all day. The boys had a ball trick or treating!! they didn't want to stop!! We were in the costume party - but didn't win. In my opinion we were gipped but I'm bias!! we were told by a house (around 8:40) that they were their favorite costumes by far!!

Cade spread his candy out for the picture. : )

Lane was so excited about all his candy!

I painted the bathroom but chad and i don't like it. We wanted a bluish gray and it looks like a nursery color. We then thought about doing sage but can't find a color we like. So we are sticking with the same color we did throughout the house. Might as well be safe and know we will like it. Chad isn't going to meet his goal. He has been drilling holes in the tile for 3 days now, trying to get the doors on. The tile keeps breaking the bits! It has been a pain - prob. the worst thing for chad so far! we hopefully will get a drill bit tomorrow to finish the last hole in the tile. hopefully the rest won't be so bad. he said he is ready to lay off the bathroom for another month. LOL!! poor guy, plus he doesn't feel very good right now.

Today (saturday)... I had to cancel my photo session due to malfunctions. So this morning I did a lot!! put away dishes, did 3 loads of laundry plus my bed sheets, picked up, did checkbook and bills, fixed lunch, got pictures in today so put them in order so i can check off the different orders. after that cade and i went to the pumpkin patch and high school. It wasn't really that fun. We ruined it by going to okc to the affair of the hearts. : ) After that we went to walmart and returned a shirt and came home. chad made kbobs tonight. MMMMMMM!!! The sassins came over! I was so happy to see them. I see calley but we just all don't get together very much anymore. : ( life has just gotten hectic! hopefully we can start doing that more. It was so nice to visit. I played with taylor for a little bit in the floor and then lane came in a kicked me out of the way. : )

I think i'm going to get my pjs on, wash my face, brush my teeth, pick out boys pjs, brush their teeth and lay on the couch!! seems like i have been going none stop for awhile!!! : )
