Well, I have been awake since 5 this morning and can not sleep. I am so frustrated with this baby, and can only think about him coming, I also worry a lot and hope he is ok. Maybe the more I stop thinking about him coming he will. Today is Halloween!! I can't believe the weather this week it has been in the mid to high 70s and today is going to be 75. It will make for a nice night, and it will be nice not bundling the kids up so much. Well here is hoping to a fun Halloween night and hopefully a BABY!!!!!!!
Well today is Wednesday, and I think that today is really my due date and not yesterday. I was thinking about it and looking in my book and every Wednesday is when I change weeks, which makes today exactly 40 weeks. So Still no baby!! I have an apt today at 1:30 so I really hope that I will have the baby tonight. Last time with Brandon, I went to my apt that day and I was already dialated to a 4 and did not even know it. So I am really hoping for that same thing. Wish me luck!!
So I just had to write, and say I am so happy about gas prices right now. I drove by the station the other day, and it was 2. 62 then the next day I drove by, and it was 2.42. Who knows, today it may even be cheaper. I really hope it stays this way, because it actually makes travel more possible, but we all know good things are to good to be true! Well we only have one day left, and no baby yet. I guess I will just have to sit and wait. Which I hate!!! Pray hard that I will be in the hospital tomorrow.
Last week we went to a pumpkin patch that my friend told me about. It was MASIVE. I have never seen so many fields of pumpkins, this picture does not even do justice. And the best part is, is that you are not charged by the pound, so we basically got them for 5$ a piece. Matthew picked one that Jeff could barley pick up. Then they had a little hay maze for the kids, some animals to pet, and a blowup slide, and it was all free.
So I have 13 days left, and my nesting instincts are going CRAZY ! Mostly I feel really bad for Jeff, because half of the things I can't do because it hurts my back really bad. It all started out with organizing my kitchen cubords, and computer desk. Lots, and lots of organizing the kids closets and rooms as well as cleaning. We have painted the babies room which is almost done. I have touched up all of the walls upstairs with paint and made them look really nice and free from scuffs, hand prints, scratches, food, you name it. The downstairs in next. Man my walls are DIRTY. I have wiped down ALL of the doors and molding around it, and touched them up with paint as well. Hopefully the babies room will be done in the next few days and we can put it together, wash ALL of the baby stuff and clothes and put it together. YEA! I still have to dust the whole house and we have to organize our basement full of way to many toys. And last but not least, we are going to clean our carpets upstairs and down next week. So I have to ask myself, why do I do all of this? And I have absolutly no clue. I just have to. So thank you to Jeff. You only have to put up with all of my craziness for a little longer. I love you!!!
Ok, so this makes me really mad, when I scan these they are the right way, then when I post them they go upside down. I can't figure out why. If you have any suggestions then let me know.
Anyway, here is matthew's picture. I thought it turned out really cute, if you look close you can see his tongue. It's cute. Here is a picture he drew today, they were supposed to draw them in there Halloween costume. He is going to be Spiderman as you can see. I am so sorry they are upside down.
On Tuesday, Ashlie had cowboy day at school. They learned about cowboys through out the month and learned cowboy songs. When we got there they were roasting marshmallows over a pretend fire, and they made hats, and little horses and sang 2 songs for us. It was very cute.
Jeff and I were married on June 16th, 2001 in the Salt Lake City Temple. We met at BYU during Jeff's last year of undergrad. I am a busy mom of 5 wonderful children who are very busy themselves. M is 11, A is 10, B is 8, K is 6 and L is 18 months . They are all doing well. We enjoy camping, rock climbing, running, canyoneering, and our new found sport of family bowling. We hope to have a fun and eventful year.
