Yes My sweet husband is a little disapointed but he is already over that and is now on to picking out names and getting ready to fall in love all over again! :)

An almost restful day

one king size bed covered in warm snuggli blankets + one tigger movie + one container full of goldfish + one black dance rea-tard(leatard) + one baby Belle + 2 sweet sisters and a really tired mom = an almost restful day. :)

Well today is wednesday, a day I dread because as of right now I have no sitter for wednesday and that means that I get to come home after working a 10 1/2 hour shift and start my real job, MOM. haha Oh so needless to say wednesdays have become movie watching, eating snacks in bed kind of days. I know I am such a bad mother :( Any who these are some pics from our afternoon of laziness. Ps this is pretty much all my baby wants to wear these days, we have a few from when Jayda did ballet and then a couple in the dress ups and some how she manages to sneak them on every single day and what a battle it is to change her. haha she is a funny one. ps she calls them her "rea-tards". hahaha

Nothing much

Well not a lot of major stuff has been going on the last little while which is probably a good thing. Michaels elk hunt is finally over! Yae. He got a pretty good bull not the one he wanted but not to shabby either. Im just happy to have my personal slave/hubby back. haha Thats what he has felt like since he got home any ways. hey you know what every pregnant woman deserves a personal slave right. :)

So these are just some cute random photos but my girls love to help me in the kitchen so this was us making dinner this week. I was frying bacon for potato soup so I threw on my apron and of course that means my girls both need to get theirs on as well. What funny little things they are. So I know my kids really look like homeless children lately but man am I exhausted all of the time so I have a feeling that for the next 7 1/2 months this is what they will continue to look like. haha

Well its a little late but I just wanted to formally welcome Brittney into the family. The Abbott bunch is crazy, overwhelming and a little bit out of control but I couldnt have picked a better, funner, more loving and accepting family to marry into. I am so excited to have you as my sister in law and look forward to many great years to come!!!!

Mikelles big news!!!!!

Ok well I guess I better add a little bit more to this unexpected post. We are not due forever!!!!!!Well thats how it feels any way, it will be the end of April or beginning of May so that puts me at just 7 1/2 weeks. I know its early to be announcing this but for those of you who know me you know I cannot keep suprises to myself. So were in for a long winter but a very exciting spring! :) For those of you who asked, thanks so much and no I have not been sick at all. Whew. I am really lucking out so far, I am a little more tired than usuall, have an up and down appetite and am a little bit less patient (not hard to do) haha but over all I am feeling great! Plus my cha-chas have grown like 2 sizes already, woot woot who doesnt love that! :) Thanks again for all of your responses and we will keep you posted!!!! Oh and ps we will deffinetly find out what we are having, like I said bad at suprises, but Michael already knows its a boy which explains why he already has the color scheme and theme of the babies room all picked out and ready to purchase. haha :) You just gotta love that guy.

Michaels Deer 2008

Well my sweet heart that likes to go hunting oh so much got his deer 2 weeks ago! Yae one down and 2 to go. haha He is really happy with the one he got, it is in velvet still so its actually kinda pretty. Yes I called a deer pretty. Sorry about the blood in the pictures I know its totally gross! Michael is so proud and that makes me proud of him even though its not my thing!!!! :) Good Job babe! Ps thanks Dustin for being a good hunting partner.

Ok and ps this is silly but I am so proud of Michael for this. He gets Jayda ready most mornings and then takes her to school and he is getting really good and creative at her hair-do's in fact I think he is better then me now. :) haha I love you babe and thanks for all of your help your the best!!!!!

This is Jayda trying to wake up enough to get ready for her 1st day of kindergarten. Im not a morning person either. :) She is so lucky that she has her wonderful cousins to walk to and from school with every day. Thanks guys! Jordyn is in the class next door and Garret is in her class.

She only has to walk 1 block to get to school but that includes crossing 3 streets and yes her mama is way paranoid. haha some times you just gotta let them go.

Heres her new class room she is sooo excited about everything.

This was what Mikelle and Jayda wanted to do when they got back together for the rest of the day. They love to play dress up, especially with mommys clothes.

Jayda had to get 5 shots on Tuesday and since she was soooo brave and such a good girl she got to go to the DOLLAR TREE to pick something out. My kids love that store!
For some reason Micky was trying to nap in the laundry basket, she is so funny.

Jayda has really started to be a big helper in the kitchen lately and wants to no longer just help me but do things all by herself. She unloads the dishwasher and puts most things away, she takes out the garbage and puts a new liner in the can, she sweeps and washes the countertops. Whew thats more than I even do. :) haha So this day Jayda decided she wanted to make lunch for us all by herself and let me tell you she did a great job. She made shredded cheese sandwiches with a lot of mayo and 1 piece of ham. haha she is so cute. :) Dont worry tho she did remember to throw some carrots on the side to keep it a little healthy.
