Long Time No See!

Hello Bloggy Friends!

It's good to be typing up a post. I feel like my time away has been a much needed break but I have missed you!    I took the before Easter off and that was my intention but then last week turned into about the craziest of my life so I just decided that some more time was needed.

The funniest thing about taking my break was that while the first week, I did have a total computer fast, the second week I was all over Facebook. I just enjoy the cyber-connection. The only problem on Facebook is that I have to use a lot less words to express what I want - which is hard for me to do. ;)

Anyway, LOTS has gone on in two weeks.

  • Bubby lost his first tooth! Actually, he lost it 3 times. He lost it from his mouth, then dropped it and found it and then dropped it again and never found it. We had to write a note to the tooth fairy. Luckily, she came and all was well. 

  • B figured out who the Easter Bunny really is. Poor girl, she's just too smart for her own good. She said she's known for a long time but a conversation she overheard confirmed it. She also said that she's finding out many things that adults say don't always stick. Yeah, that's the kind of conversations I have with this girl. Luckily, she did confidently tell me that she knows Jesus is real because she feels him with her every day. What more could I ask for?

  • Bubby also had a birthday - his 6th. We had a little family party but waited to have his party with friends until this week. He loves being 6 - he feels very grown up.   I think in this picture he still has face paint on that his sister used to make him a cat.   And that is a cherry cheesecake that he picked out that was so yummy, I can't even think about it without my mouth watering.   I love that my kids like cheesecake for their birthdays - just like dad!

  • He also started T-Ball this month. However, we recently found out that I had him on the wrong team for 3 weeks of practice. Apparently, the two teams practice at the same time. The first night we went to practice it was raining and I just placed him on the team that I saw practicing on the infield.  His real team had actually canceled practice.   We finally figured it out - oh well,  at least we were practicing!  
  • The pregnancy is going great.  I feel lots of energy right now although I am gaining weight like crazy.  But I think not as much as last time because I literally am running these kids around All.The.Time.  I gained 80 with B and 70 with Bubby.  Yes, I did.   So, my goal is to stay under 60 this time.   I expect with being pregnant in the Summer that is going to be hard. 
  • We went to the mountains for Spring Break.  It was ultra-relaxing.  I'll have to post some photos from that trip - so beautiful.  

  • I started a new job!  That has probably been the biggest actual change in our life this last week. Boy howdy, has it.    I'll post more on this later - I actually have an entire thought process going on this subject.   
  • And my final thoughts on blogging?  Well, I'm keeping the blog open for now.   I enjoy my interaction with you and like having a place I can record my thoughts.  I also love communicating with far away friends and family here and using it as a place to post about my kids.   It may not be an every day post, but I'll still be here.  I've decided that blogging is not a career goal.  Some women do it really really well and I'm just not going to be one of them.   That's okay - it's just not what God has planned for me.   So, if a definition of a blog is needed - that's mine.  A place to record my thoughts and be in community with you.    Simple simple. 
I hope you are enjoying this beautiful Spring weather!!!!
Anyway, those are the highlights - more details later this week.

Anything new with you?  Leave a link in the comments with one of your blog posts of something I've missed the last couple weeks that I shouldn't have!

Lol my goal is 50lbs, but 60 is probably more realistic seeing as I have almost already gained 20lbs yikes!
