Easter 2011

Hope everyone had a wonderful Easter! It was a busy weekend around our house but thankfully, we have nothing to do today so we are being lazy and having a jammie day! We started off Saturday with an Easter egg hunt. Harrison had one the day before at school so he knew what was going on! He had trouble holding his basket and getting eggs so I had to help him.

Saturday afternoon it was time to dye Easter eggs. Harrison had never dyed eggs before so I invited some friends from church over so he didn't have to do it with just boring mom! He got the hang of it quickly!

On Sunday, I tried to get some pictures of him after church. The wind was blowing so his hair looks funny in most of them, but he is still just as cute!

A Day Out with Thomas

On April 2nd I was in Birmingham and we took Harrison, AJ, and Sarah to see Thomas. The bigger boys were at their dad's house so it gave us a little time to do something that they wouldn't enjoy! I think the kids had fun. We rode on Thomas, we met Sir Tophamm Hatt, we went to the little petting zoo, played in the sand etc. We could've spent all day out there because there was so much to do!

I know I'm biased, but I absolutely love this little girl! She is so smart and beautiful! I'm so glad God blessed us with her. She truly is a blessing...even when she is having one of her days! I hate to say it, but even though I have been away from her for 3 years, she acts a lot like me!

Morgan's Nursery Part 1

Mom, Dad, Katie and the kids came down for the kids' Spring Break and mom and dad got so much done! They moved the kids furniture for me, they painted Morgan's room, replaced blinds, cleaned my house, etc! It was great. I grew up with a house full of people and I have to say I still love having a house full! Here are a few pictures of her room. It's still a work in progress so I'll post again when it's finished!

Where to start????

Well it's been 3 months since I updated this blog. Life has been a little hectic but I do have many posts that I want to catch up on. We are officially over the hump with this deployment meaning we are half way done! Some days it goes by so fast and others it seems to be at a stand still. Ben is still doing well in Spain. We have some major life decisions to make, but that's for another post! I'm 32 weeks prego with Miss Priss and it's still going well. I'm tired and have horrible back pain, but it's still easier than my pregnancy with Harrison! Speaking of Harrison he is doing well. He doesn't like to talk about Morgan so it should be interesting when she gets here to see what he thinks! I decided to have a c-section so we will be scheduling it soon. My next appt is May 6th and I will schedule it then. Somehow I don't think I'll make it that long, but we will have to see! I guess one of the most life changing things that has happened since I last updated is that I lost my job. I was fired and I have to say it was a very humiliating experience. I don't miss the job and the goals or dress code, but I do miss going to work everyday and all the girls! I have been substitute teaching which has allowed me to keep Harrison in school 3 days a week. Hopefully after Morgan is born, I'll start looking for something else. Ideally I would like to work at their school where I would get free daycare and still bring home more than I would have at Navy Federal. We will see if that works out!
