I'm Here

Hi! Just checking in!!! Yes, we are still alive! No, baby boy has not arrived yet. We are getting oh-so close, though. Only about 4 more weeks!!! The count down has definitely begun!

I have a ton to blog about and a whole lot of pictures, but my Mac is currently getting worked on at the Apple store. Something crazy came over it. Therefore, no computer and no iphoto, means no blog posts and no pictures. I am currently on Conn's computer. So, through my trusty iphone and Instagram pics, I will try to catch you up on the past couple of weeks.


***We have begun the process of rearranging rooms. The girls are moving in together and the baby is getting Maggie's old room. This means...painting 2 rooms, moving and painting furniture, cleaning out closets, cleaning out toys, etc. The girls room is in the final stages. I'm loving it! A big shout out goes to my parents for helping us with the transformations!

***We went to the beach last week with Conn's whole family (a whole post in itself). We had such a great time. We were supposed to stay until Friday, but came home early on Wednesday because I was having very strong and frequent contractions. With my past history and how fast my babies come, we didn't want to play around. So, we loaded up late Wed. night and got home around 2:30 in the morning. The contractions slowed down, so we decided just to go to bed. Thankfully, for the most part, they have stopped and no trip to the hospital has been needed. I can tell my body is beginning the process of "getting ready". So, we are just taking it day by day.

***I turned 35 (now 36) weeks. I can't believe how fast this pregnancy has flown by!

***I pulled out all of Cash's old baby clothes and actually got the baby's bag packed for the hospital. I bought some new outfits just for him, but I'm so thankful that I already have tubs and tubs of boy clothes!!

***We went to Conn's 20th high school reunion. It was actually a lot of fun! It was great to catch up with all his old buddies. I can't believe that he has been out of h.s. that long! He's old! :)

Class of '91...

***We met some friends for a little play date at Wendy's, of all places. They had storytelling, face painting and crafts. Fun times!

These 3 will all be starting Kindergarten at the same school! Woohoo!!

***Like I mentioned earlier, I have a lot of closet's to clean out. YUCK!!!!

Before...

After...

***We have all been going a little crazy! Summer has been fun and eventful, but the count down to school has begun! We are ALL so ready for it to start! It is time!

***And this pic is just for laughs! :)

Hope you are all having a great week!
