Happy Valentine's Day

We started the day shopping. It was a big day. We had a second ultrasound to confirm that we were having a boy. Then we found a dresser for Luke's new room and then we went to ikea, where we found tons of things to help us organize our house. For Dinner this year we had a nice dinner at home. The kids went over to Jason's parents house. When Jason took the kids over he brought home some flowers. It was a nice surprise. I loved them!!   It was nice to relax at home and have some good food! The cake was supper good!! Everyone loved it!!!

Lacey's Hair

So we finally got the curlers in the mail yesterday. We wasted no time to put them in her hair. They were very easy to use and take out! She said they were a little uncomfortable to sleep in, but no bad! Lacey loves her hair!!!

Update on life

I thought that I would do an update on what has been going on in our life lately. It seems that we have been busy with life. Jason has been working lots of hours lately so the kids and I have have been home doing lots of random things. So Jason has pretty much been working lots. When he is home he is resting and hanging out with us, and looking for a truck. Yes, we are going to get a truck soon, but we just have to the right on for us.

Lydia has been busy with school which she loves!! Her reading is coming along and becoming a very good reader. She is a Huge help when she is around!! We love our Lydia. The weather has been nice on and off and she LOVES to take Joseph outside to play, which he loves. Lydia LOVES to play with her friends. She is always asking if someone can play! She is a great girl and I can't believe that she is 7 already!! Love our Lydia

Luke is getting bigger all the time!! He is a very good brother, and very loving to his two sisters. He loves to play outside in the rocks. Hopefully soon he will want to ride a two wheel bike!! But that will come with time. He is a great help to me and is such a sweet boy. We love him so much!! He is very good at throwing the football with his dad!

Lacey is in love with getting her hair done! We spend time every day looking at blogs so she can tell me how she wants her hair that day. She is going out her hair and can't wait for it to be longer. We ordered some special curlers online, and she is waiting everyday for them, She is very excited about it!!! She is growing taller everyday! She is my little helper in the kitchen. She like to help me out!! She has finally found her love for playing outside! Yeah! She can play out with Luke outside for hours. But Luke and Lacey still love quite time and know when it is every day! But with the weather being so nice they have been playing outside during quiet time which is great! We sure love our Lace.

Joseph is getting better every day!! He has a LOVE for balls. Luke liked balls but not like Jojo. He is always caring around balls or saying ball all the time. It is his favorite word and says it at least 100 times a day! He is starting to talk more, not that we can understand him. But at least it is a start. He signs lots which helps alot. He can shake his head yes and no. He wants to be big like the other kids and loves to play outside!! If I don't let him go outside he stands at the back window or in the front room to watch the kids play. Joseph also like dogs alot except when they get close to him, he likes them more from a distance I guess. We sure do love him!

I have been busy getting our house cleaned top to bottom. It has been alot of work, but it has been worth it at the same time. I have cleaned things in the last few months that I don't think that I have cleaned the whole time that we have lived here. I just never think about it. I am not a born cleaner so I have to work on it. I am getting better at it. It should get to the point where it is not hard to maintain it that way. That is the goal and I know it will happen. Baby steps and I have come along way!! Besides cleaning, organizing and getting ride of stuff. You can't organize clutter you just have to get ride of it. I have been sewing for the new baby. I'm getting closer to being done with all my projects for our little guy, then I have my new project the new toy room. We are going to be moving our toy room into the living room and making it more functional. Brady (Jason brother) is working on building a window seat in the living room. I'm very excited to get it all done, but I have lots of sewing to do in the mean time to get it ready so that Luke can move into his new room. Also I have been working on getting the kids more independent. So I don't have to ask the same thing 5 times in 5 minutes. I have made up some cards that I hope will help. I'm very excited. We have to make the most out of the space that we have!! People lived in a lot smaller spaces then our home, they just have less stuff. so that is the goal Less stuff!! I have also been doing Hynobabies every night getting ready for this little guy to come. I feel good when I do it. We start our classes at the end of April.

I'm sure grateful for our health that we have and our family and friends. We are truly blessed!!

That is what we have been up to. I have things to post of outing that we have done. But I hope to find time to get them up!! Just thought I would say hello to all!!
