Joshua is in preschool

Our little Joshua is in preschool and loving it! The kids elementary school is putting on a preschool this year during the same time William is in kindergarten so it works perfect for me. He only goes two days a week but looks forward to the next class as soon as he's home. He loves his teachers, Mrs. Frank and Mrs. Staheli. The best part is that it is FREE! I am always into FREE especially when that part is a surprise! With the new baby on the way this is a great break for Joshua and keeps him busy. He'll come home and color or practice writing his name for "homework" which is very cute! We love our little Joshua and all his spunkiness!

Little Boys' Room

With baby on the way, we've been moving the kids rooms around a bit to make it all work out. We put the little boys downstairs and painted the walls a soft blue. It didn't quite look right with purple walls and butterflies.

 Both boys seem to love their new room and adjusting quite nicely! I found quilts at TJ Maxx and the metal stars as a consignment shop. My grandpa was a manager for the Union Pacific Railroad and so we have collected a few trains along the way.

The picture on the wall is actually four little yarn pieces that Zack's mom had made for him when he was a little boy. He never wanted to part with them and so they've become part of the boys decor.

This room has plenty of sentimental value to it and will easily adjust as these little men grow up! It has been fun making this home feel more and more like mine as we change things to our family and not just what was here originally.

My, oh my!

Zack was complaining that I don't take enough pregnancy pictures since Katelyn was born 10 years ago. You know first pregnancies everyone seem to take pictures of their growing bellies at least monthly but when you've had lots of babies it just isn't exciting to get fat! I decided to let Zack have his way and made him take pictures of me, right after he got home from church! This is my seventh pregnancy so there is no hiding this baby! We are down to the final countdown with only a few weeks left and weekly doctors appointments until she arrives. I am quite antsy to have her out and about but willing to wait for a healthy baby is worth it. Wish me luck!

Baby Shower

Stephanie threw a baby shower for me since we are finally having a girl after four boys! I had actually gotten rid of all my baby girl items since it's been so long. Stephanie went all out with decorations and food; Jennifer helped out too! It was lots of fun and our little miss was showered with many gifts! I've been blessed living in a great neighborhood with lots of wonderful people who make sure I know they care. It has also been great to have both of my sisters so excited about this baby coming. They can get their baby fill without all the work! Thanks Stephanie for going out of your way for me. I really appreciate all you do!
