The Kids Hate the New House

This picture was taken when we took the girls to look at the house for the first time. Can't you see what a horrible time they are having. Please pray.

Prepare for Thanksgiving

Sean has been preparing for Thanksgiving for the past week. Let me just show you what an interesting week it has been...

(National Safety Director please go to the next post and disregard this one.)

Get out your ponytail holders and headbands because...well, you'll see. Don't try this at home kids.

First, you need a unitasker:

Some fire:

Some Veggies and Tofu:

And a Wok:

Should you decide to purchase a turkey fryer and make this wonderful meal you probably won't be as blessed as us to have the two coolest strangers show up at your door and stay for dinner.

Daniel Academy students look out, you are about to take the most exciting Culinary Arts/Food Science Class that has ever been. Check in again in the next few days to see the fried turkey.

*Please note all cooking was performed in a well ventelated area.

I have some photo updating to do...

Well I guess I can start with today.

It snowed! All had fun including the dog. This is our old backyard. Pictures of the house we just purchased are yet to come.

Notice Judah wearing a skirt over her pants...

Friday, November 16, 2007's not a boy

When Angela was pregnant with Charlie, Leah was the first to find out if it was a boy or a girl. She wanted to give us all a hint. "It's not a boy." I love that hurricane.

Today we got the exciting news (of course we'd be excited no matter what). It's not a boy! Poor Patrick is still going to be the only boy, and Sean is going to continue to have a house full of girls. :)

It was so fun to see that tiny little girl. She is so scrunched in there. The technician thought that she is about 8 - 10 inches long.

Judah has been text messaging everyone in her phone from the moment we found out.

Night Watch

Pregnancy has take a toll on my energy levels. Since I got married last year I have realized the great value of going to bed early. Since I've been pregnant that value has increased tremendously. About 7:30 8 each night I find myself heading to bed. Some evenings I would climb in at 5 if I could.

The recent complication has been my night watch. I feel like I need to go to bed at 8, but never fails...around 12 maybe 1 I wake up. Could be my bladder or could be the dog. It doesn't really matter. This means I'm going to be up for a few hours. The big decision I have to make is, do I spend this time laying in bed hoping that I fall asleep or do I come downstairs and occupy my time with something else? Tonight I've decided to come say hello to you.

The luxury of my life right now is going to get a burrito and running into Dave W. and Katchen and Izzy! The next day I go to the Prayer Room and there they are again! Later I went to TheCall office and Randy was there. This is so fun! I love living near friends.

Winter Itch

Well it's not exactly winter, but I'm starting to itch. This was something I did not miss about the midwest. In California dry skin is almost NEVER an issue. Especially when you live near the ocean. Now I should consider that pregnancy may have something to do with this, but man...I itch all over. The kind of itch that makes you wiggle in your jeans cuz there's just no fixing it. Lotion helps a little bit, but what I really need is a portible humidifier to carry along with me wherever I go. Could someone invent that for me?
