Just A Quick Update...

Just wanted to give a quick update before we (hopefully) have some very exciting news to share. Time has been flying!! We have ALL been plagued with sickness- colds, fevers,etc... ice (again)-Kelsey was out of school two days last week, Khara was out for three and now I think we are finally on the mend with everything just in time for the arrival of the baby. Only 4 days until the due date!!!!!

Oh, and you might find this interesting,...I had an ultrasound last week to check the babies placement and weight. Placement is correct, thank the Lord, and for the weight...remember ultrasounds say give or take a pound....9lbs. 4ozs. :-)

What we've been up to:
Addressing those Valentine cards. "Mom, which one should I give____? Have a Willi-Wonka Valentine's Day, or you Razzle Me, Dazzle Me!! ?" :-)

Constructing the Valentines Boxes. Just a little FYI for all those teachers out there, if you can make these boxes at school... Parents really appreciate it!! :-) No, we did enjoy making them: glitter, glue, tissue paper,... any childs "hay-day"!! :-) Another not so good pic. of Khara, I'm sure she will be thrilled that I posted these.

The completed projects! Khara's class had a contest. She was happy to come home and tell us that she was one of the winners!!!

It's that time of the year again:
Khara, Kelsey, and Kaden have been LOVING barn time at Grandpa and Grandma Englunds!!!!! These are just a couple of pics. Mark took. I hope to get a lot more in a couple of weeks. Because of the baby, I have not been able to go out there yet. Sheep can carry diseases that affect expectant women. My dad is extremely cautious in that area, for which I am thankful, so I will get my glimpse at the full barns in a week or so. I think the count yesterday was 166 lambs and he is about 40% done. A very neat time of year!! Khara told me last night that she thought it would be awesome to wake up in a barn. :-)

I was wondering about you . . . Still no real noticeable progress here (Dr. visit today) - so we're still waiting.

We've had sickness too so that's kept me busy. Hope it all goes very well for you! Full moon Thursday night - we'll see if there's any truth in that old wives' tale!
