Going private!!!!

For various reasons I too have decided to go private so if you are interested in continuing to view our day to day going ons send me an e-mail betta@charter.net and I will add you to the list.

Some randoms....

We are trying to encourage the coloring and learning thing right now so we got him this little table that he seems to like but not for the purpose that it's intended. He's more interested in organizing his crayons and markers and paints then actually coloring. I might just have to accept the fact that he's not as much into the whole artistic thing like his mama, at least not right now.
Who said you need to buy toys!!!

Silly kids...they played so well together this time when we were in Rockford!!! Wish we were closer!!!
Hehe!!
Ohhh the love...Mike and Derek got into a wrestling match...it was quite amusing to watch!!!
Conner sleeping next to G'ma....not often that he zonks out like this!!!

Conner has been sick since we have come back from Rockford on Saturday...not eating and throwing up again. Every time I try and feed him he throws everything back up. We might be making another trip to the Dr. He's still being a good little boy though other then the whole eating thing again. Throws a fit every time I try and feed him anything...goes to his room closes the door and screams. I don't even make a big deal about the eating thing I just offer it to him and if he does not want it I don't try and make him eat it....although I have tried that as well. He's had a few tough days with that but I'm sure it will get better again soon...I hope. He's been playing so well with Sasha lately too...sharing his toys and he gets so excited when he wakes up in the morning and she is here.....he will make a good big brother.

I think it's funny that Neal has to take a sanity test today....part of his interview process for his raise in March. I hope he passes...haha....he did last time he went through the interviews but that was before he had Conner and a crazy pregnant lady around.
I got to go to a moms night out on Monday which Sara organized....thanks Sara. I had so much fun and it was so nice to get away for a bit and chat with the ladies. I laughed so hard that I thought that I was going to have a baby right then and there....I guess I wore the wrong shirt too...not stretchy enough cuz I ate WAY too many of the goodies that all the girls brought. We need to do that more often girls...as long as the dads are willing to watch the kids again : ) Kelsie's husband was at home with the 4 kids and when he called her she asked how things were going...his reply..."they are ALL in time out"....too funny.

New stroller!!!


I had fun this morning putting together the new double stroller....I still can't believe that Neal got it for only $30. I love it and Conner does too...in spite of his sour expression in the picture. He wanted mom to take him for a ride and not take a picture!!!
I have to say that I have been bored today. Conner has been playing so well all morning and Sasha is never hard to look after. I feel very cooped up in the house and are really looking forward to being able to go outside. I'm so sick of the cold and the snow, I want flip flops and tank tops again. I'm also ready to have this baby and get back into shape. I feel the need to get out and run or exercise or do something. Boy do I hate January but it's almost over now only a week and a half left. Wow hard to believe though that February is almost here. We are getting closer to the date when Neal is going to start in Delafield and I'm getting more and more nervous as we approach that date. Hopefully he will still be able to take 3 or 4 weeks off when the baby arrives...it would be so nice to have him home for that long.

Kinda funny!!!!

What happened to our kid....

.....and please don't bring him back. I don't want to jinx this stretch of good behaviour but our kid has been super good for over a week now. I'm not sure what's going on or what the difference is but we really like it!!! He plays well all day long and does not whine, picks up his toys without fussing...strange I tell ya!!!

Ula....this picture is for you. Remember this shirt???? It finally fits!!!! You can't read the end but it says: Not only am I cute I'm Polish too

My other addiction!!!

Neal and I really LOVE these little chocolate covered cake balls...kinda a fuss to make but worth it!!!

The recipe link is http://bakerella.blogspot.com/2007/12/red-velvet-cake-balls.html

Thanks Angie!!!

These little delights are my treat almost every morning. I LOVE this gingerbread recipe and these just go so well with my morning cup of coffee. Thanks Angie for getting me hooked...this is all I need to stay on track this year : )
Conner likes them too!!!

I think it's final!!!

Neal starts at the Delafield store February 26th!!! I guess we better start checking out the area!!!

30 week bump!!!

Yup...that face is a face of discomfort!!! We are almost there...less than 10 weeks left now!!!

Grandma purse????

SO I spoiled myself last week and got myself a new purse...I have been wanting it for a long time but could not bring myself to pay as much as they wanted for it. Finally it went clearance so I got it. I never imagined having a purse this big but it's nice because it doubles as a diaper bag. Well Neal has ruined my excitement about having this brand new bag because he tells me that it looks like a G'ma bag....not that there is anything wrong with G'ma bags but it's not exactly what I was going for. Ohh well I still like it and I'm very excited about it and don't really care what anyone else thinks so there...haha.

Fun sledding!!!




We took Conner sledding tonight since he has his cast off now. He had SO much fun and did not want to come back in at all.

New do!!!

After....nice and short!!!
Before...I definatly like his hair longer but it's just easier to buzz it.

Update!!!

One down one to go....we were able to rent out our apartment last week so that is awesome news. We paid his first month rent but it beats having to pay till April. Now we just have to sell the house...we have not had much luck but we have not advertised much yet...we were waiting for the holidays to pass. Hopefully things will start to pick up after January!!! At least we hope so!!!

We still do not know much about Neals move which is a bit frustrating. The latest we heard was that he would start in Delafield the 2nd week of February...this being a VERY temporary position, less than 6 months. Then he would be moved to somewhere in Madison. It's a little frustrating not knowing but I'm trying to go with the flow. Just really hoping to sell the house this spring otherwise I will be here with the kidos by myself.

Little limpie....

Conner is almost finished with his cast...he has an appointment on Monday afternoon to have it taken off. Really not looking forward to that...he will scream like there is no tomorrow. I'm really hopping that once the cast is off his leg will be healed enough to where he will be able to walk : )

Memories....Daydreaming....Wishing....





With this cold weather and snow I have found myself wishing for warmer weather and remembering our Hawaii vacation....boy do I wish we could go there again sometime soon but with a new baby and yet another move just around the corner it will have to wait again!!!! Some of my favorite pictures from the vacation....just looking at them makes my toes a little warmer.

This is what I get!!!

Conner absolutely hates pictures and usually screams when I try to get him to sit still so when I do get a picture it's usually in motion. This is the look I was getting today when I was trying to get a picture...priceless!!! We will try and attempt and get one professionally taken once the baby is here and I'm hoping that maybe by then he will be a little better otherwise it's just a waste of money!!!

Conners favorite new toy!!!

Conners favorite new toy!!! Thanks G'ma and G'pa!!! He does really well on it even with his fractured leg!!!
