Well as you all can see, the new camera pics have still not been uploaded to the computer. I think this will be on the top of my to-do-list for the weekend. I have plenty of pics to post from my birthday and a few other more to come soon I promise.

I am now 12 weeks pregnant and I still feel great. I actually lost a pound at my last visit and the baby's heartbeat was 165. Everything is going well and my IBS is getting lots better. So hopefully I will gain a little weight by the next visit. If not I am sure the doctor will be on me, especially since I am already so small.

In other news, we are patiently awaiting the arrival of a new member of our family. Little Coen Lane should be here soon. I can't wait to meet him. His mom, Cyndel, babysat Austin when he was very young so I know she will be a great mom.

The boys are so excited about Thanksgiving. They love spending time with the family and this year they will get to meet some new family. We are going to spend lunch with my mom's side and the boys will get to meet aunts and cousins that they didn't even know they had. My mom's family is not very close. My mom is from a family of 12, but they are very spread in age and just haven't remained close over the years. Which is sad to me but I know I really don't have control over that. But this year is special. My mom's older sister is losing her eye sight so we all want to be together so that she can have those special memories to remember.

Other than that I am so thankful for my family this year. We have had a tough year so I look forward to spending quality time with them this holiday season.

I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving with family and friends.

Birthday Present

This is what my wonderful husband and my two little boys
got me for my birthday! This was the only thing that I had
asked for so I was super excited to open my present and find
this inside. They also got me a memory card, a carrying case,
and a bag of peppermint bark candy.

The guys at my work bought me a basket from the fudgey nut
and flowers.

I will post more later about my evening. And I promise now that
I have a new camera that I will post more pics.

Strep AGAIN!!!!

So yesterday afternoon I had to leave work early AGAIN and watch Trenton because Deborah (Danny's Mom) had to take her mom to the doctor. Trenton and I made a quick trip to the chiropractor's office and I went ahead and called the doctor on my way. He has had problems with eyes since Monday and they were treating him like it was allergies but his poor eyes were still really pink and you could just tell something was wrong. So the doctor's office called back, and scheduled us in to see Dr. Patz at 5. So I went back home grabbed Austin and off we went to see Dr. Patz. Thankfully they were on time and we didn't sit in the waiting room but for maybe a minute. Well the nurse went ahead and swabbed Trenton because he told her him throat hurt a little and we waited on the doctor. Dr. Patz is so good with my two boys, and he came in and talked to Trenton while he looked him over. He was a little stumped with his eyes because Trenton's eyes are very pink but they don't drain. So while we were talking I was telling him that the nurse had swabbed him for strep and he was like I would be surprised if he had it, well then he flips screens on his computer and was like I am definately wrong. Trenton did have strep and he looked at Austin's throat and he had strep as well. So the boys are out of school AGAIN and hopefully they will both be well by the weekend. Thank goodness he did prescribe meds that they both don't mind taking. :)

Today is not my day

So this morning I get up thinking what a great day I will be having at work. I was going to leave at 12 and go to the grocery. Pick up the last minute items for dinner tonight (it's Bunko night) and get home and finish picking up around the house, and do the last minute touches. This was also going to leave me enough time to spend a little time with the boys and get a manicure and pick up my makeup. I am completely out of base and the guys at work now call me little Amish girl. So I had all of these wonderful plans for today and they all going down the drain fast!!! My boss who went on a business trip to Las Vegas last Thursday has still not returned to work. Supposedly they got stuck in Dallas on Sunday, so he didn't show up yesterday. And then this morning I get a phone call from his wife saying that he picked up something from the airport (yea right)!!! So little to say I am just a little angry today, and very stressed out. I apologize now to all of my bunko friends if my house is not up to par tonight and if I look a little stressed. I promise though to try to make the evening wonderful and hopefully my food will turn out okay since I want have a lot of time to cook. And hopefully the boss will show up sometime today so I can leave before 5pm. It is days like today that I wished I could be a stay-at-home mom. :)

Thanks again for letting me get this out of my system.

My Wonderful Husband

So yesterday morning we stayed home from church with the boys (Trenton now is feeling bad and I think I am getting a cold), and Danny went out with his dad for a few hours looking for us a storage building. We are officially outgrowing our house but with a storage building I think we will be good for a little longer. So while Danny was gone, I kept the boys and did the wonderful laundry. This is the only chore that seems to always be behind in my house. So I did the laundry and got ready to leave for my cousins shower. Well Danny and his Dad took a while looking at those storage building and he got back just in time for me to head to Arab. But I have to say he made it up to me while I was gone. Let me explain...

Our bedroom has been a mess since we moved back in month's ago from having the house repairs done. It was a room that we could shut off from the rest of the house, and seeing how we have been so busy, we just haven't had the time to deal with it. So while I was gone to the shower and to church, Danny cleaned the room. And I mean it looks wonderful. Now he did leave me with a neat stack of papers, and a few bags of clothes that I have bought and have not put away. But what a wonderful surprise to come home to yesterday, and what a wonderful husband I have. God did bless me with a wonderful husband.

Danny also has been planning me a 30th birthday party for this weekend with my family and a few of my close friends. I am so excited, not so much about turning 30, but to see my family and friends.

Well I better get back to work. We have a toilet issue going on here and Mr. Rooter just showed up. Hopefully we will have working potty's soon.

Almost all better

Austin seemed to be feeling lots better by this morning. The doctor said that he had a cold which then caused his asthma to act up. So he put him on Orapred and we are giving him over-the-counter cough medicine. But thankfully, he is getting better, and the steroids seem to be helping.

Other than that we have a very busy weekend. Tomorrow is game day at our house. We will be watching AL play LSU. I can't wait!!! We are big AL fans, which when all you girls come over you will see. After the game, Austin has requested we play Rock Band. Sunday though, will be extremely busy!!! We have church, then my cousin Cyndel's baby shower, then back to church to work the nursery. Somewhere in all of this, I will need to find time to do laundry, clean the house, and rest.

Well hopefully next week I can post some pics of our weekend. Since Cyndel, Shantelle, and myself are all pregnant hopefully I can get a shot of all of us together.

Well back to work I go. Hopefully I will get off at 5 today. I hope everyone enjoys their weekend.

The Doctor We Will Go

Well Austin is sick again with a cough and his chest hurting him, and he is complaining with body aches. So off to the doctor we will go this afternoon, and hopefully while we are there I want pick up any germs. I will keep you posted on what the doctor says.

I am now 9 weeks and 2 days pregnant, and so far so good. The night sickness is getting better. If my IBS would ease up, I would feel a lot better. The only other thing I notice is that I can't get still at night, or I will be asleep. But hey, after going all day from 5:30 on, I am tired. I am just thankful that I don't have morning sickness, that is a blessing.

As for Trenton, he is great. He loves school and loves learning new things. And his behavior is also improving which makes it easier on Mommy and Daddy while we are at work.

Other than that, Danny finally finished working on the outside of our house. He still has a few finishing touches to do, but it looks great. And he has been such a help thru the first part of the pregnancy. He has been cleaning and cooking so that I can rest. I really am blessed to have a wonderful husband.

Well I better get back to work.
