the joys of family

I often find myself having more fun spending time with family rather than out partying. I will be able to look back in a few years and be thankful that I spent most of my time with my children and family. Yeah I do like to have some alone time sometimes with just me and the hubby. I know growing up I don't recall much family time except for around the holidays. I feel as though family is more important than drinking all the time. I'm not writing this to affend anyone. If you fee as though I am I guess you must be one of those that leave your kids with a sitter all the time to go out.
Lately we have been spending a lot of time outdoors and at my youngest brothers house. We didn't get the house we were wanting. We have to try again in a couple months and hope and pray it is still up for sale then.(it's a long story)
For now we are going to be putting a fence up in our backyard for the dogs and making a flowerbed out front. There is not much grass there so I figure why not plant the flowers I got before they die.
I got my 4D ultrasound on Thursday. The baby is weighing in at 4lbs 9oz already. I so hope I go early! Otherwise she is gonna be a big girl. Her feet are even huge! I have pics up on my myspace page of them if you would like to look. Well better go.

life in my fast lane

Well as you may have guessed things are getting pretty busy. I get up everyday with just enough time to feed the kiddo's ,take the dogs out ,yell at the kids to get dressed a hundred times before the finally listen. Then get Aurora dessed and out the door to get errends ran. I hope I don't forget anything half the time!
Felecity is getting excited about dancing at the park in july and her recital will be in july also. July is going to be a busy month already and it's not july yet.
We have done a lot of outdoor things with the kids lately. It's good for them to be active. We did get a chance to go to the park pool one day this week. That was fun. Preaton did get burnt though. I thought Aurora would be fried but she was good. The water was still a little cold but it was refreshing.
I just hope the weekend is nice enough for us to do some outdoor activities.

Ok so far so good. The bank excepted our offer on the house we have been looking at. Now we just need to go through the rest of the process and with any luck we will be moved in july.
Besides the flood around us everything has been good. We didn't get any damage or flood water in our house or basement. It was all around us though. We got lucky. I just hate all this rain we have gotten. Not that I want an drought but rain like every day now come on.
My pregnancy has went well so far. I am now seeing my doc every two weeks. It's getting close!
The kids have enjoyed being able to play outside almost all day. Preston's hair is already turning blonde and felecity is already getting tan. I'v already been asked if I take her tanning. Come who would let a 4yr old tan in a tanning bed. Chandler is growing up so quick too. Some of the things he does and says makes me derl so old.
Until next time.
