This has really been a pretty good day, nothing major exciting has happened and all in all things have gone really smoothly. I love days like this, nothing to exciting going on and I get the chance to catch up on things around the house and spend time enjoying the kids! I spent about 45 min today cleaning the house and was actually able to get everything done...I do still have to go back and re-clean the kitchen after dinner tonight and I have some laundry to do but honestly that's not bad. I think it's pretty go to be able to clean the whole house in about 45 minuets-can you tell i'm a little proud of myself?!? haha!

I'm also really excited about diner tonight! We're having beef stew and cornbread and it sounds so so yummy...although we won't be eating for another 3 hours. It's days like today that I love being a stay at home mom, I love spending time doing things around the house and doing things for the kids-although getting 100 cups of juice every day can get a little old. :o)

Colby's grandparents came over today to see the kids, they live about an hour away so they don't get to see them very often. Both of them have grown so much since the last time they saw them so i'm sure they enjoyed the visit. They kept talking about Konner and how much energy he has, poor thing I think he was making them tired just watching him! haha He is one active kid that's for sure. I don't think I could've kept up with him if i'd been any older when I had him! :o) He's super sweet though, there's not a person that knows him that doesn't just love his little personality. Miss Lexi is following his footsteps too, she's got her own little personality but always tries to keep up with brother-poor thing, some days that's really hard to do.

Anyways, I guess I better get to that laundry I was talking about...

Just a quick chatch up

Ok so i'm really not very good at keeping this updated!! I think about blogging most every day but making the time to actually sit and do it is a whole other story. We have been kinda busy around here the last few weeks so i'm just going to excuse the fact that I haven't written anything! haha!

I've been super busy with the kids lately, we've gone and done a bunch more stuff with them than normal. We've been to Jump n Jive, Mr Gatti's, the park, we even went and played tennis with my dad a few days ago. All in all we've been going and doing alot! Playing tennis was so much fun though, it was Konner's first time and he and my dad had so much fun. They played for about an hour and Konner was actually really good, I think he even surprised my dad a little bit (he's as talented as his mother!!). I do think he's going to be very athletic which should be interesting since neither Colby or I are super into sports so I guess we'll see how that turns out.

I'm trying to be better about taking time to enjoy the kids, most days I get so caught up in all the things that I need to get done and forget to just take out time all through out the day to sit and play with the kids or just talk to them, or even just sit and watch a movie with them in my lap. It's so hard to believe that Konner is almost 4 and Lexi will be 2! I can't even believe that they've been a part of my life for that long, it just doesn't seem real!

Things seem to be good with the baby so that's awesome. At my last doctor's apt everything looked good, i'm healthy and baby's heartbeat sounds great. We do have a sono scheduled for Thursday to check all the measurements and all that fun stuff so i'm excited about that. It will be hard to not find out what we're having since we're at the point where we could if we wanted to but I really do want to wait and be surprised. We've waited this long so what's a few more months?!? It is so much fun to feel the baby move, even thought it wasn't that long ago that I was pregnant with Lexi you do kind forget just how cool it does feel. Just a tiny little reminder that he/she's there. :o)

Things at Colby's job are going well, they are working on some new senior programs that sound really awesome but if I tried to explain them would just get you confused. haha It's so fun to see him bring work home and watch him put so much of his free time into finding ways to make these programs work. God has really blessed him in his career and i'm so glad He has. Colby just seems to grow and mature in his work and personal life every day and it's really great to watch and be a part of.

Well I guess now that i've finally gotten the chance to sit a blog for a bit I should get to all the other things I need to do...this crazy house work just never seems to end!! haha!

Back home

I had forgotten just how good it is to get home from vacation!! Colby and I went to Dallas this last weekend, he had a photography conference for work and I tagged along since it was a paid trip! :o) We had fun but I really am glad to get back home. It was the first time in a while that I had about 2 days to do absolutely nothing, it was sooo nice! I laid around and watched movies-now I know why we don't have cable!- and read the whole time. It's really funny how doing absolutely nothing can make you so sleepy! haha! I felt so drained by the time we were ready to leave and I hadn't done anything. :o)But anyways, it's good to be back home...
