Stupid camera....

Well, I had some new things to show you, but my camera totally freaked out and won't upload anything to my computer. Not sure what is wrong with it. And hubby is still not feeling well so he's in bed and can't help me. :( He stayed the night at the hospital Friday for his sleep test-he has sleep apnea. I am hoping that the machine they are giving him will make him stop snoring!! Anyway, I hopefully will be able to show you some of my work soon! Finished a few layouts of Aaron, plus I did Alex's ultrasound photo! I'm hoping to do a few layouts from Easter today, but we will see.

I hit up the first yard sales of the season yesterday!! SO EXCITING! I went out looking for clothes for both boys, a jumperoo, maternity clothes, an outside swing for Aaron, and any other odds and ends for Aaron and Alex. We ended up going to 6 yard sales, and only 2 of them were any good. One had a huge sign that said "GIANT YARD SALE" on it, and when we got there she had one table of junk set up. Seriously, her sign was just as big as her whole yard sale, lol. But I did end up finding a Jumperoo! I was so excited! I've slowly been registering for things online for Alex's shower, and when I looked at the Jumperoos, they were $60-$90. So I knew that was something I wanted to find at a yard sale this year. I paid $15 for it. It is in great condition and much larger than I expected. We had the doorway jumper for Aaron, and I hated it. Didn't feel secure about it, plus it was always in the way, and it had Aaron in a really weird place. He couldn't see me or watch TV or anything. So I'm still happy about my find today! The lady that I got that from also gave me some maternity clothes! We have been talking on the freecycle board, and was just coincidence that she had a yard sale! I also picked up 10 pieces of clothes for the boys and paid $2! The guy was practically giving things away because his family was moving. And he had some great stuff. A lot of the bigger things we already had, or else I would've bought a lot more from him! But I got Aaron 3 pairs of shorts and 4 shirts (including a Curious George one that he carried around half the night), and I got Alex a shirt, an outfit, and a really cute hat. I love yard sales. :)

Well, that's about all for now. Missed church this morning because I had one of those Braxton Hicks contractions for about an hour. Hurt so bad I just laid on the couch. Aaron kept coming over and saying "Mommy crying?". I told him no, my belly just hurt. He's so sweet. I hope you all had a great weekend, and here's wishing you a wonderful upcoming week! Thanks for stopping by!

This will be a long one!

My blog has really suffered lately! SORRY! As you can imagine, I am pretty physically and mentally exhausted. My new job is working me pretty hard, but its nothing I can't handle! I just feel like I haven't rested in weeks. Last week on my days off I spent one whole day visiting all of my doctors, and the other scrapping all day! Not that I'm complaining! Just tired. This week I have the weekend off, but I'm still not getting any rest! Today I cleaned for a bit, did some laundry, and by 10am I had acquired 2 extra kids and found myself at Walmart which is pretty hectic the day before a holiday! So we met the Easter Bunny-whom Aaron loved! If you talked to me at Christmas you know that he hated Santa, but he threw a fit when I tried to make him leave the Easter Bunny! He wrapped his arms around him and said "NO, MINE!". It was so cute. I love that kid. Look how adorable he is!

After that we went to my church egg hunt, which was pretty insane! There were only about 20-25 kids there, and they "hid" over 2700 eggs! This was Aaron's first egg hunt! He had so much fun. So did my baby brother David and my niece Lexy. They both got about 150 eggs each! Picking Aaron up and down and up and down and having him ram me in the stomach with his knees for an hour wasn't much fun though...Now he is finally napping and I'm down to one extra kid who is in a really nasty mood. Anyone know of a good vacation spot?! And please don't think I'm complaining-I LOVE my life! I'm just so very tired!! Anyways, here is a pic of my little man hoarding his eggs!
Well, as I said before I spent one day last week scrapping with my HappyScrappers buddies! I had so much fun and it was so nice to be out of the house (but not at work)! I had the best time and it was much needed. I completed 4 pages, plus I did 2 more that are 90% finished. Not bad, huh?! Here are 2 pages I finished. This first one is a picture of Aaron and my husband's grandmother. She hasn't been in the greatest health lately, so I really want to cherish the few pictures that we have of the two of them together! I believe the paper is Chatterbox, the small letters are TLC, and I can't think of what the big ones are! Very simple, but I like it!
This next photo was taken right after we moved into our new house. Aaron LOVED his new room and played so hard, he fell asleep on the floor! These papers are Quick Quotes-the collection is called Aron! :) The Sleepyhead is a Karen Foster Rub on, and the poem is something I found online! That is one cute kid!
One of my very favorite blogging buddies, Carol, is having blog candy for her birthday, (HAPPY BIRTHDAY CAROL!) and one of the rules is you have to post a current pic of yourself on your blog. Ughh. I hate pictures of me, especially when I'm pregnant and feel yucky! Anyways, here's my photo Carol! Not the best, but as I said, its been a long day and I feel pretty crappy! But here I am world!

Well, that's about it for now. Sorry to have written so much, guess I just needed to write to get some things off my mind! :) Hope you all have a wonderfully blessed Easter! I'll be starting with church at 7am and probably won't be home until 7pm! Another long day, but it looks to be a great one! Thanks for stopping in!

IT'S A......

BOY!!!!! I thought for sure it was a girl, but boy was I wrong! Aaron is going to have a little brother! And I'm not as far along as they thought-I'm now due on August 25! I'm so glad to finally know! I'm extremely tired though and feel like I just never get a break! Thankfully I have this weekend off, so I'm going to relax! Thanks for stopping by, and hopefully I'll get the new ultrasound page done by this weekend so I can show you!

Probably won't be around for a few days....

Hey all, just wanted to check in and let you guys know you might not hear from me for a few days! My new job is EXHAUSTING! I am working 8-9 hours a day Monday through Saturday this week. Its only Wednesday and I'm already pooped! Plus I wake up like clockwork at 5:30 am every morning, so I'm not getting a lot of sleep. I am hoping to do some crafting this weekend. I am definitely going stamp shopping Sunday, too! So hopefully I'll have something new to show you. I am FINALLY having my ultrasound next Wednesday, so be on the lookout for that news! Well, that's all for now, just wanted to let you guys know where I was! Have a good day! :)
