House Expansion Project....

There is one house project that we are working on that we didn't know we would be doing this year....

We are expanding our home by two feet :)

The project should be completed around February 14th, 2013!

Okay, now in all seriousness, SURPRISE! It was to us as well :) We always knew we wanted to grow our family, just weren't aware it would be happening this year. However, we know that God's timing is perfect and we couldn't be more excited to add this new little bundle to our crazy-beautiful household!

If any of you have seen me the past month or so and I looked "off", well, I was. I have been so incredibly sick it has been hard to function. Pray this phase passes quickly :)

I am 10 weeks along and my belly is rapidly growing. I have been to my regular doctor and my endocrinologist (thyroid) and so far everything is looking great! Please say a prayer that my thyroid continues to do well in these very important upcoming months.

We are so thankful for the love and encouragement we have received so far and look forward to sharing the newest baby "S" with everyone!

Fire Crackers and Freedom

I'm sitting here painting my nails a dark red for the holiday, the boys are resting, and the hubbs is putting together his new grill the boys got him for Father's Day. Overall, just enjoying our new little space.

The past week and a half has been a blur. We moved, I've been working most mornings and nights helping with a summer camp at the local college, and we've been attempting to unpack. Our house is a wreck and many projects are still needing to be done. BUT we are at peace in our new sweet home.

The boys are in heaven with all of the space they have to run and play. Getting to watch them run, laugh and play without worries of cars, etc...has made the move worth it right there. I even think they are even getting along better because they each have more space.

The only projects we have been able to accomplish are replacing a couple light fixtures and attempting to remove the rediculously stubborn wallpaper from the walls. After our last house and our current, I've decided that wall paper is bad. Very, very, bad. Yes, it can be beautiful, but still mean at the very same time.

Today, though, was my last morning at the camp and I have chosen to be the mom I have been wanting to be the last month, but haven't "made" the time(okay, I haven't had much time).

We are going to play outside with the boys(slip-n-slide time!), grill out, and I'm making a yummy 4th of July trifle (yellow cake, whipped cream, pudding, strawberries, and blueberries. Yum!). We are enjoying each other and, especially today, we are enjoying the freedom that has been so painstakingly fought for. Even amongst the craziness we are still blessed and thankful.

I hope you all enjoy this holiday and are reminded, once again, of the blessings in your life!
