Invisible Children

Today my girls are having a day of silence to make people more aware of the Invisible Children in Africa. Kids that are kidnapped and forced into military at a young age sometimes being forced to kill their own family members. You can go to the website to learn more about the project. It is a sad story that people don't know enough about.I know that I had no idea it was going on. I am proud that my girls are working for this cause and I hope that many others will get involved as well.

Monster Eggs

The kids had fun decorating Easter eggs again this year. It was Nicola's first time ever decorating eggs. I think they had fun because we got the monster kit and they were able to give them monster faces and hair after they were dyed.

Earth Day

I know that it is Earth day but my kids keep walking around the house shutting lights off on me. I get it but I am not cleaning my house in the dark. I will find them something earth friendly to do if they don't back off and I'm will make sure they don't like it.

BIG News In A Little Package

Oh yes! Surprise, Surprise, Surprise! Baby #4 is due at the end of October. The 27th to be exact. My little bean is 12 weeks in this pic, 2'' long, and about the size of a small lime(so my phone ap tells me). We don't know the sex yet. I don't want to know because I feel like I wouldn't spend as much money on stuff for the baby if I didn't know what I was having. My husband, kids, and Mother-in-law act as if not finding out would be equal to the world ending so we will find out at the next ultrasound appt if baby is cooperative. (I think it would be funny if it kept its legs crossed) Being old and pregnant is way different that being young and pregnant like I was before. This old body just isn't taking things as well. I would stay in my bed and sleep all day if I could(with cereal breaks of course). My youngest is going to be 9 years old when the new one comes along and my other two will be 13 and 12. This will definitely be a change for us all. Brooklyn will be graduating when the new one starts kindergarten. Don't get me wrong, I am excited but I can't help but think about how much life will change for us. This baby is coming for a reason it will just take time to find out what that is. All babies are a gift from God. Once I start feeling better I am sure that things will look up.
