The Buffalo Bills baby blanket is done. Pics to follow when Jeff gets home with my camera.
Blood work done. I go get my rogam shot on Monday ( I can't wait)
Glucose test is done. Man, I forgot how bad that stuff tastes. Then I read the disclaimer on the bottle. Can cause nausea, diarea, faintness, etc, etc, etc. Why do we do this to prego women again. I took a little comfort in the fact there were 4 other prego women taking the same test and all of them gagged it down too.
The Dr. Apt went good. 5 min in and out. Listened to the heart beat, measured my tummy (right on track) and weighed me. I gained 1.4 lbs this past month. That is a total of 6.4 lbs the whole pregnancy. Not too bad. I am expecting the weight to shoot up now that I can eat almost anything. I bought a whole box of zingers and I don't plan on sharing with anyone. That should be good for 20lbs right there. I have to go to the drs every 2 weeks for June then I get to go every week in July and part of aug. I told the dr about my plans on having the baby mid july. I don't know why she laughted and shouted something about me being on crack. She must have been talking to someone else.
I am going to take a nap and the pick up a little before the kids come home.
Then off to the baptism...

http://www.ifboobscouldtalk.com/home.html Then click on the left side that says view book (or something like that).
I already went to humanitarian aid. Amanda and Diana came (from Girl Scouts). Allyson and Summer always come (When Allyson is not at school). Allyson and Diana tied 3 blankets all by themselves. NICE WORK LADIES!!!
I got and ate my big mac (the one I needed last night, but Jeff wouldn't get it for me).
My goal is to get caught up on all the laundry before the kids get back with all their smelly camping clothes.
I have a couple of movies to watch latter tonight when I am too scared to sleep without anyone else in the house.
Tomorrow I get to take my glucose test and my RH neg blood work (that is when they work up a special shot that they stick in my butt that burns. It is really fun and the highlight of my pregnancy. At least Jeff won't be there to mock me endlessly. He thinks it is the funniest thing. I keep asking the Dr if they would give Jeff one, just for fun. But I guess they don't like giving random, needles shots to people who don't need them. WHATEVER!!!
Then I have a reg dr apt at 10am, I love getting weighed and measured. I will get to hear the babies heart beat again ( My favorite part).
There is a possible Girl Scout council trip afterwards.
Then the kids come home. I get them cleaned up and dressed for a baptism.

I will be staying home. Even though I am stronger than I was a couple weeks ago, I am still not strong enough for portapotties. There is only so much a prego woman can take and that is defiantly on the other side of the line.
I will be at home getting my blood work taken, a dr apt and the car checked out. Sounds fun? I know I can't wait. I have never slept alone in a house before. Growing up there were way too many kids, I was never alone. The BYU I had 5 other room mates. Never alone. Then I got married and never been apart except with the kids were with me. I hope I don't freak myself out.

When the kids were small, Jeff would be nice and let them hit him with water balloons. Now that the kids are older, Jeff gives them NO MERCY! The kids end up soaked every time.
Last night the kids wanted to do water balloons again, I knew how it would play out if we used the same organization. So we changed it up. We asked the girls across the street to help us out. Jillian is 12 yrs, Mary is pictured below and is 14 yrs and Maureen is 16 yrs. We had three water faucets filling up balloons. All the mixing bowls and pictures from both of our homes filled with water balloons. We placed them in all the bushes at our house and their house. We put some under cars, between fences and each kids had their own container.
Here is Mary. She caught Jeff in the corner of a fence and pelted him with water balloons until she ran out! She is the hero of the story. If you can tell Logan is jumping up and down with excitement! Jeff was so soaked and Logan was thrilled about it.
Jeff usually turns on me sometime during the fight, but he didn't want to miss and hit my belly (thank heavens!).

I loved the first day of summer vacation with my kids. They did their work on time, we went shopping, they played in the back and then after dinner we played with the neighbor kids out front.
Life is good!

Jeff is working on some landscaping within the next couple weeks and we will have more room to plant pumpkins and cantaloupe. I am excited for the pumpkins!
Kellsie is going to work on a wildflower patch along the front fence.

Kellsie got to play with electricity.
Here is a pic of all the Girl Scouts who went to the sleep over. About 4 troops were there.

Here is Logan playing the water game where you have to pass a soaked sponge over your head to fill up a bucket. Very funny game to watch.
Here Kellsie and Jakob are having to soak a sponge and run it to the bucket and ring it out. Then the teams would take the filled buckets and toss the water on the other teams. Not a lot of skill involved, but everyone got wet.
Kellsie and Jakob playing another water game. They had to pass a soaked sponge over their heads and then fill up a bucket.
sides and take pictures of everyone at the same time, so the boys are the only ones who got their pic taken. And by the looks of it, you have to tilt your head to get the correct view...sorry.
They went hiking... Climbed in ditches with logs...

Monday was Kellsie's play day. At the park with water games. Jakob and I were there to play and help out.
Tuesday Logan's teacher needed help with Father's Day gifts (but last min, she didn't need me, so I helped in the Library). Then Kellsie had a soccer game with her class. Kellsie's class and a fifth grade class were playing for first place. They lost, but it was still a good game
Wed is Logan's play day with water. I get to stay out in the sun and help with that. But Jakob will get to play too, so I am fine with going.
Thursday is Logan's awards thing and then I help his teacher take down some of her class room. This is also the day Kellsie's teacher picks who takes care of the animals for the summer (they have birds, fish, 4 guinea pigs, 1 snake and 1 gecko). Kellsie is in the drawing and I hope and pray she does not get to take anyone home. But with my luck, we will get the Snake or the smelly guinea pigs or the hard to clean birds or the gecko that gets live food. Well, I should be proud that Kellsie was chosen responsible enough to even go in the drawing. My own fault for teaching her. I will correct that with the boys!
Friday is Logan's class party with gifts and then I go to Kellsie's Parry with a raffle and slide show.
Friday is a sleep over at explora with the girl scouts. I am really excited about going with the girls. Not sleeping on the floor while prego, but I am still excited!
It looks like Jeff has sat off, so I have a long honey do list for him, and I know he is so excited and willing to complete the list. RIGHT JEFF???

I have a couple packs of diapers, we just got the crib set up today (thanks to summer for the crib and Laurel for the mattress). WE put it up as a family. It was fun! Jakob was so excited to get it up. He has been asking me every day since we got it from Summer.
Kellsie set up the dresser and we got the clothes put away. Now I have a better idea of what I still need.
My mom is coming in July for Logan's baptism and she said she knows how to make crib sheets. So I need to go and get some material and get it ready for when she gets here.
Funny, I forgot how much room a newborn takes up. Such a small body with big stuff.
Real Mothers don't eat quiche; they don't have time to make it.
Real Mothers know that their kitchen utensils
are probably in the sandbox.
Real Mothers often have sticky floors,
filthy ovens and happy kids.
Real Mothers know that dried play dough
doesn't come out of carpets.
Real Mothers don't want to know what
the vacuum just sucked up.
Real Mothers sometimes ask 'Why me?'
and get their answer when a littlevoice says, 'Because I love you best.'
Real Mothers know that a child's growth
is not measured by height or years or grade...
It is marked by the progression of Mommy to Mom to Mother...

Jakob got to make one too, but he was planning on taking it home that day. We accidental stapled his like everyone Else's. He will get to bring his home another day. They looked pretty cool hanging there.
But I am really excited about the Mother Daughter date we have going on. We are going out to dinner (to be determined) and then home to watch some movies ( I am hoping something other than Camp Rock or High School Musical). We are still working out the details.
Then on sat morning we are going up to the mega garage sale to get some much needed baby stuff and then back to get Kellsie to a girl scout activity.

Jeff is making chicken stir fry for mother's day dinner. I can eat chicken and the spicier the better, so I hope he puts lots of hot sauce in my dish.
Then we will eat the cherry cheese cake and apple pies that we bought for the Young Women fundraiser.
Or maybe I will have a piece of apple pie right now and then have dinner and then have more pie. YEAH! I love that idea!
The kids have been so excited about their gifts. They have been trying to give them to me all week.
My biggest kid (Jeff) gave me one of them on weds. He bought me a picture that matches my kitchen that says "Live, Laugh, Love". That is my favorite saying! And I am glad he got it for me.
This morning Jeff handed me a 4lb container of licorice (one of the only sweets that doesn't make me sick). I can't wait to chow down. He also bought flowers with Logan last night. Logan wanted me to know that they got the prettiest bunch at the store. They are so pretty.
Kellsie got an art kit for her Birthday and made me a flower pencil art work and framed it. I think I will put it in my room. She also made me a butterfly magnet for my fridge. She made a big Mother's Day card for me and on the inside was a drawing of me pregnant and one of me pregnant and laying on the floor (she thought it was funny to draw what I looked like when I fainted).
Logan drew a portrait of me. Big eyes and big smile. I am glad he thinks of me that way. He also found me the finger nail polish that I have been looking for.
Jakob wrapped up things he found in his bedroom and gave them all to me. I got 3 of Logan's belts, a flashlight and a magnet from a game. I love gifts like that! He was so happy, he was jumping up and down while I was unwrapping them.
Then at church the kids sang a Mother's Day Song. and After that the men got up and Sang "Love at Home". I know Jeff doesn't like to sing, but he did it anyways. Jakob thought it was funny that I was crying.
I am so proud of how hard you worked Logan!
