We Are Moved In!

Sorry for such the long absence, I just got my internet back today. It is probably a good thing it was gone for a couple days since we have been very busy with our move. We bought a house and are now proud homeowners for the first time! We are so excited! But for tonight I have to say my feet, back, hips, and everything are tired. These past 4-5 days have been grueling! I have probably done my share of "pregnancy no no's" with all that moving entails but we are surviving. I seem to remember the last time we moved I was pregnant then as well. Hmmm. We're going to have to plan that better next time.

I will be sure to post before and after pics as soon as I feel like I can breath again. There are soooo many boxes to unpack!

My little angel

My kids are such a treasure! At the end of a long, stressful, and disappointing day with the house we are trying to buy the kids were finally tucked in. It was time to relax but I just couldn't so I decided to clean the bathroom. I needed something to keep me busy. 

Not too long after do I hear Ethan's little voice at his door saying he has something. I thought for sure it would be something like "I need another drink" or " I need my tiger" or something like that. He tends to try all the tricks to stay up as long as possible. 

So, I open the bedroom door and this sweet little boy of mine has his blanket all wadded up and in his arms ready to hand to me. He holds it up and says, "I get you a sup pize mommy!" He had wrapped one of his treasures up for me. What a SWEETHEART! I love my babies! Thanks Ethan you made my night and Mommy loves you!

November! The good and the bad

This week has been FULL of Ups and downs. I feel like I've been on a roller-coaster all month so far. The downs have all been centered around one thing and that is the house we're trying to buy. It seems like once we get through one hoop we have to jump another one and once that is fixed another one shows up. Come on guys! I am supposed to be hosting Thanksgiving this year. It'll be a little difficult if we don't have a house to do it in! Plus, the appliances are already ordered as well as the carpet and laminate! But enough of that...Things will turn out the way they should, I just wish they would happen a bit more on my schedule. Heavenly Father knows what he's doing though so I guess I should have some more patience.

The Ups however have been fun. I was contacted by a nearby Zumba instructor replying to an ad I put up that her boss was looking for another instructor. I politely responded back saying I was interested, but since the ad was placed I was now pregnant and didn't think her boss would be that interested. To my surprise it was no big deal at all! She said that she too taught while pregnant at one point.

Long story short...I met with the boss for a casual "interview/meet and greet" where she said she was excited about me and suggested I attend some of her other instructor's classes. After I did that I was to get back with her and let her know if it was still something I'd like to consider. So I may just be instructing my own Zumba class in the near future! I am way excited.

The other highlights of the month have just been the simple family things. Nothing huge but highlights nonetheless. This past Monday our little family did our weekly FHE. The kids requested making puppets (I must have started something). So I grabbed a couple paper lunch sacks, some googly eyes from my stash, and some simple construction paper. I cut a couple shapes out for the faces and then traced the kid's hands to make the turkey feathers. It was VERY simple but the kids loved it.


Today is also Dan's Birthday! Happy Birthday Daddy! We love you!

The last of The Halloween posts

Halloween is finished! Now I get to take the decorations down and work on packing. But just wanted to share a couple of the last bit of photos I took yesterday for Halloween. Also I didn't want to forget to get a couple shots of Dan and I's pumpkins.
Ethan still went out as Buzz Lightyear for trick or treating but Kiera stuck with the Lion instead of her original Tinkerbell. I got a box of costumes down earlier in the weekend and they just tried them and played in them. So that's where those pictures came from.

Hope everyone had a happy Halloween! Now the trick is for me to stop eating all the leftover candy.
