24 Weeks & Landscaping

24 weeks!!!

Aaron's parents, David and Kim came into town on Friday and Saturday and they brought in a truck load of plants and trees for us! We have been without landscaping for almost a year (since we moved in), and our flower beds need a makeover badly! HUGE thanks to David and Aaron for working hard on our new beautiful landscaping! This is what our house looked like before we moved in. Poor pitiful shrubs. Soon after this pic was taken we dug them out, and have been without anything for almost a year.

New and improved...


They made this bed a little bigger....much better!

Again, yuck!

So pretty...

We even got a couple of new trees. Here is one of them!

Noah even helped!

Again, thank you David and Kim both for an awesome gift, and for taking Noah to see Elmo!

Belated Valentines Party

This year, my sister decided to start the tradition of having a cousin's Valentines Party. This past weekend was kind of crazy for all of us, so we had the party on Monday. My sister took the idea from Jon & Kate Plus 8...the one where they have the Valentine scavenger hunt. We had so much fun!
My sister decorated the table, and all the kids had a balloon, a card with their name to show them where they sat, and lots of fun Valentines goodies.

Noah's spot...

We had heart shaped grilled cheeses and PB & Honey sandwiches. We also had a cheese tray, veggie tray, chips, black olives (the girls' favorite), fruit tray, and yummy cupcakes!

All the cousins about to receive instructions for the scavenger hunt!

Finding a clue in the bathroom...

And finally to the Big Box of Surprises at the end!

The kids ripping into the box to see what all they got!

Rylie especially was excited over her new paci's.

Thanks Aunt Lizzy for starting a new, fun tradition...we can't wait till next year!

Be Mine <3

Remember my first Valentine's Day?

2 years later and just as lovable!

And of course, me at 22 weeks.
I wouldn't have posted a pic this week but I felt like I grew quite a bit!

I went to the Dr. yesterday and they scheduled my c-section already! So, it will be Friday, June 12th at 8:30 am (yes Courtney...on Savannah's Birthday!)! PLEASE PRAY that I make it till then! I get a sono in a couple weeks to see how everything is growing. Pray for good results!

Have a Happy Valentine's Day! I LOVE my blogger friends!

I've been a bad blogger

Noah and I have been fighting off colds for the last couple of weeks, maybe that is why I haven't been blogging. I think we are finally over them for the most part.

Well, I am 21 weeks today and feel great! The baby is moving more and more and it is fun to feel the little kicks. They are strong enough now to where Aaron can feel him and I know he appreciates feeling our precious son for the first time.
21 Weeks
A few days ago we had PJ/Pizza day at preschool, so here is us in our pj's!

Noah is changing so much, daily! He talks a lot and pretty much adds a word a day to his vocabulary. He can count to 8 and loves to sing many different songs. He has learned the colors: red "wed", green "geen", orange "oinge", yellow "yewo", blue "bue" and black "back". He also loves to do puzzles, read books and play outside "souside". One of his new favorite things is watching his shows on Playhouse Disney "Isney". His favorites are Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, Handy Manny, and Little Einsteins. We tune into them every Monday and Friday mornings. The above picture is of him being a couch potato.

Happy Friday Everyone!
