I dont have any pictures today or really anything exciting to talk about! What I am doing is sitting here (on the toilet) in the bathroom while the girls play in the tub, listening to Zoes playlist on my IPOD..currently "the jungle book song" and enjoying the relaxation of no fighting and bickering!
I just started to realize that as nice as it is to just sit and enjoy them it will be different in a couple months, Ill have a little one who needs a whole lot more attention!
I cant wait to see how the girls interact and step up as the big sisters, taking in everybit of "big sister-ness" by helping and loving and participating in all that will happen when we recieve this new little life in the household!
I also have to say how excited I am to have Zach by my side. He is an amazing dad and husband and has really been stepping up these past few months as Mr. Dad. Lately work has been extremely exhausting and Im a complete couch potato by 1000am on Sat. morning! I leave my to do list on the counter and by Sunday it seems to be crossed off, and NOT by yours truly. Im not sure if its baby number three, or the lifting and bending at work but for some reason my body aches in places I didnt know I had, and Im so tired I feel as if sleeping is just a word and not an action!
My husband is AMAZING, Im so thankful for him and all he does, working, fatherhood, husband duties, and most importantly the MOM duties he has taken on and allowed me to skip out on!
Things are great, he is great, my kids are great and beautiful!

Another sucesful valentines day gone and over. We were lucky enough to keep Zach home for the day and enjoy every second! We ended the day with our traditional heart shaped pizza, I encluded the pictures from the past of our tradition only missing the very first (I think)!
What a wonderful day it was!

Can you see my toes?

Ive been thinking about this post for a couple days, thinking about how great a little black and white picture would be of my view laying down looking at my toes....
needless to say I havent taken a picture, but I can tell you the view, well it isnt there!
Ive reached the point of not being able to see my cute little toes, probably a good thing because they havent been painted in a while!
I supppose its the one thing you either look forward to in a pregnancy or dont look forward too!
I can see them when I stand and lean forward a bit but beyond that Im not really sure what the heck is holding up the top half of my body (probably my feet!)
Anyway, I pulled out my maternity pants today, they fit, a little snug but they will do.
Im preparing myself for a long 10 weeks or so ahead of me.
Preparing to be comfortable in sweatpants
Preparing to be uncomfortable as everything stretches just a hair more and the baby gets a few more elbows and knees to my ribs in
Preparing to not work
Preparing, preparing, preparing, for a new little life that will bless this house
and preparing to see my newly painted toes (Im invisioning a cherry red this third time around)

its only wednesday

I sure havent blogged in forever, probably because I am really irritated with this new template system. I cant seem to get my main picture to shrink in size so it doesnt take up the entire computer screen!
If anyone has any suggestions I am sure open!

Its only Wednesday and I woke up to the bean bag filled with itty bitty balls ripped open and coming out of the laundry room door. Thanks to our lovely new pup (not so new anymore) Miley who seems to think that nothing is sacred. Weve lost gloves, blankets, seatbelts, helmet clips, barbie shoes, bean bags, golf shoe laces, shirts, boxes, pieces of paper..etc...etc...etc....you name it Im sure we have seen it in poop!

Needless to say Zoe also wanted to go to school in her favorite outfit of all time her swimsuit, without asking she dressed herself in her clothes with her tankini swimsuit on top of them! I am not one to argue when it comes to picking out clothes so above I have added a not so great picture from my ipod for you all to enjoy and a couple other updated!

And better yet my little tomboy Hannah has decided to become full little girl and only wants to wear dresses. Screaming matches and all she gets her way and is wearing a dress today that she has worn the last three days, its time for this mama to embrace her and go buy some dresses.

I am sure to keep up this blog once again with all the excitement that is to follow in the next few months..but for now Ill sign off!

When it rains.....it pores:)

So here I am visiting the great town of wenatchee- great friends good family and two children! A two year old and a 6 week old. Never have I traveled this far ( 2 1/2 hours) by myself with them and the trip there- fantastic!! Well on the way home I was stopped by a road crew blowing up rocks- 20 minute delay- okay, so we wait the twenty minutes. We pass the flagger and of course it has been 2 hours since I fed the newborn so its time to eat she screams- we make it to the rest stop and POW its closed, so we pull over! Then in the middle of feeding my two year old yells POTTY MOMMY, POTTY MOMMY- great- I say. So I give her the option to go outside- NO WAY so I say " lets put on your sisters diaper and just this one time you can go in a diaper" NO WAY aaaaaaaaaaaa- what do I do...well, there is a fruit stand up the road! So we hop in the car, get to the fruit stand and I plead my case- YES they say, you can use the toilet!!!
okay, I think we are good to go...but of course we get behind three truckers!!!
So long story short our 2 1/2 hour trip ends up taking us almost four and we make it home to a loving husband and father and a batch of peanut butter cookies from the neighbor!
I guess there is always a rainbow at the end of a rainstorm- HUH?
