But while Jehnna has been home from the hospital.........I realized how fast time flies!! I mean, it's almost been a week since she was born....A WEEK already?! She seems so big already, as I look at her sleeping (next to me in her little seat/chair. The other night I couldn't help but remember when I brought Matt & Britt home from the hospital. It seems like yesterday when I held them for the first time....looked into those little eyes of theirs. Ahhh and now, they're 14 1/2 and 11. Woooow. And the thing that gets me thinking is that Britt is gonna be a senior in just three years!!!!! It's scary. My first born is almost done w/ school. :-(
Okay, okay, okay..........I'll stop. LOL But anyway, I just wanted to let you all know how I am doing. Trying to take lots of pictures so I can post whenever I get the chance. We'll see.....so keep checking the blog every now and then.
I'll post soon.
Hope you enjoy the rest of your night.

On top of packing and getting things ready today; I will relax and try to enjoy the last hours w/ only two kids. Haha, yeah.......right. But they're getting ready to go swimming in our pool, so maybe I WILL get to enjoy the last hours? Ahhhhh, that'll be awesome!!!!!!!!!! They are pretty excited to get to see the baby and to know what it is. I gotta tell ya.........they have been waiting patiently for nine months!! Ha, so I'm sure they can't wait to see what it is. And guesses are still the same: Mark and Britt think it's a girl and.........well Matt and I think it's a boy. We'll see. Throw your guesses in. ;-)
I know I said that I will post pictures of the baby's room in the blog, but it's still uploading, so I'll post after I post the blog. Sorry. My computer takes so long to 'upload' things...............esp. pictures. But I will post them........I promise. LOL that's the least I can do because I won't be able to post for at least a week. Gonna be pretty busy for a while w/ the baby and with the house AND Britt & Matt. And the posts may be short for a while. Just to let you know.....so don't be surprised if the posts willlike five sentences long. Ha, maybe not that short.............but somewhere near that.
Well, I'm hoping that the baby 'lets' me deliver naturally. And w/o section. But I will try eating Mexican food (like someone advised me too, :-)) ann then, take a walk and then bath. Maybe that'll do the trick..........we'll see. I'll let ya know if it did. Crossing my fingers. LOL
I'm getting ready to finish packing and getting things ready. I promise to post the pics in a few. Hope you like them. Oh, and I'll def. let you guys know what it is when I post again. Maybe not for a week..........but I'll post soon. Promise.
Fill you all in soon.
Have a great week and enjoy today!!

Today's post is gonna be short due to the fact that last night was SOOOOO much fun and I am sooo tired and need to 'rest'. We had soooooooo much to eat and boy, did I eat!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Hubby was upstairs and my 'little' group was downstairs. So it was great night. But tomorrow, I go to the doctor's for my LAST appointment!! Yay.........done with that! :-)
Then, finally...................the next day the baby arrives. Can't wait!!!!! We're all excited. So, since I won't be able to post for at least a week after the baby is here, I promise to post a LOOONG blog! LOL and if I don't, you could 'kick' or 'get' on my a**.
But anyway, like I said, I need some rest. I'll post soon and hopefully....get the baby room pics in the blog tomorrow.
Have a great day/evening.
Monday, June 16, 2008
Yesterday, we finished the baby's room. FINALLY! We took a break for about a week and a half and didn't get anything done, but started back up and we actually finished it just in time. Great.............because now I don't have to worry about 'it' and be rushing to get it done. Just two days before Matt came, Mark was busy, busy, busy and didn't even get a chance to work on the room. So he had to paint and do everything in TWO days!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Crazy, right?!?! But thank God that we did get it done. But anyway, the room is looking good and I took some pictures. I'm going to post them later on tonight, so ya can see em'. Tell me what ya think.
Some of my friends are coming over tonight and we're going to watch some TV and have a 'girls' night'. We haven't had one in forever and I need one.........JUST one before I bring another child into this world. So, it should be totally fun!!!!! Britt is gonna be across the street @ her friend's house and Matt is gonna be w/ his other friend, who also lives in the same estate, but another street. so at least they will be close by. And Mark will be hanging out with friends of his upstairs.................so they will be having a 'guys' night'. Hahahahaha! So yeah, it will be fun.
Well, I have to go start cooking for tonight and see what exactly I will wear. Nothing too fancy, but something nice. Any ideas?????!! LOL I hope you all have a great day. I'll post soon.
Sunday, June 15, 2008
Thanks SOOOOO much for being an amazing husband and father!!!!!!!!!!! You have NO idea how much I love you and appreciate all the things you do for Britt and Matt, as well as me!! You are truly the best father (in my eyes) and husband!!!!!! I have no idea what I would ever do without you. I know Britt and Matt love you just as much as I do..................................and we're going to prove to you today. I love you with all my heart, Hon!
And this is to all the fathers out there: I hope you all have a fantastic day with your families. Oh, and to my father:
Words can't even begin to describe how much I am thankful to have a dad like you!!!!!!!!!! As a child, you were ALWAYS understanding and you still are to this day. Even now I still think you are 'the world's greatest daddy'. Mom always told me that she loved you so much and that you always told her how much you loved my sister and brother and me!!!!! And daddy: I LOVE YOU so much! You are such an inspiration to all of us. I'm SO proud to be given a dad such like yourself!!!
Okay, I'll stop with the letters now. LOL but the one I just wrote to my dad was written in the card that I gave him today. We just got back from going out to eat w/ my family and Mark's family. And when my dad opened the card, he was tearing up. I knew at that point, he loved the card. That honsetly made my day!!!!! But anyway, I'm home now and Mark is resting and Britt and I made him a cake and we'll eat that later on tonight and we'll watch one of his favorite movies. So, tonight is his night!!!!
Well, I sure hope you all had a great day. I'll post you all soon.
Saturday, June 14, 2008
Well, as one of my blog readers has said, I'm 'nesting' or 'resting' this weekend. ;-) Oh, and you know who you are!!!!!! But yeah, I've had a pretty hectic week and am trying to relax this weekend. This is actually my LAST weekend before the baby comes!!!! Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh, I'm getting there. I'm due on the 19th, which is Thursday! So, getting everything ready for the 'hospital stay'. And on top of that...............getting the baby's room ready!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Have everything pretty much done, but later at around 4, I'll try to finish up w/ Mark. We should be done tomorrow..................................at least I hope so. Hahaha! But we should be!
So, as I have been 'resting' today I have been watching some TV. Okay and I have to admit, I normally DON'T watch MTV because I'm older and think it's retarted and crazy but I LOVE watching 'The Real World: Hollywood'. Ha, I think it's fun to watch and actually enjoy it!!!!! Call me crazy but I like it. That's the ONLY show I watch on it lol. Britt actually got me into it. She watches most of the shows on MTV. But if you do happen to watch it...............what ya think about it?! Let me know........I'm curious ;-)
But I am going to rest some more. I have to. LOL but I hope you all have a great day and enjoy your day!!!!! And I'll post you soon.
Friday, June 13, 2008
Well, for today: Getting the 'guest' room finished for the baby. Almost there.................we will probably be done on Sunday!!!!!!! Well, at least I'm hoping! Then later on, Mark is going to pick up his parents and then my parents will come. We're going to have a 'family dinner'. He's going to BBQ and I'll make some salad. It should be nice since we haven't really seen our parents since Easter.....................or Mother's Day actually. But it's going to be great!! Anyway, need to make sure that I have everything for tonight. Britt and Matt are actually with my sister's kids at a local water park today!!!!!! Won't be home until around 7. Just in time to eat. So have to tell Mark to make sure he makes plenty because the kids are going to be here and who knows........................maybe my sister as well. LOL
Anyway, I have to get going. Getting ready to do the room now!!!! Post you soon.......promise.
Have a great day and an even better weekend.
Tuesday, June 10, 2008
Well, today I'm going to go outside in a few minutes to go and 'plant' some new plants I picked up the other day at Wal-mart. I really shouldn't be outside and kneeling because I'm almost due. But I guess it won't hurt...........at least I hope so LOL. Mark is gonna get off of work early, and will cook dinner for us. Which is great because I'm always doing the cooking and it's nice to finally have a day of non-cooking. But anyway, Britt's two friends are still here.............................and will be until tomorrow morning. They are actually GOOOOOOOD kids, I'm suprised. Hahaha, I'm kidding. Britt and Matt actually are going to go with my sister and her kids to a water park on Friday, so I'll have the day to myself...............................and then they'll be back around 9 that night. Maybe Mark and I will have 'some' free time???!!! ;-P.
I hope so!!!!!!!!!!!!! We need it before the baby comes........in 9 more days!! We're getting there.........down to the single diggits now.
Well, gonna go get ready to plant. Hopefully this baby will let me move around and actually plant!!!!!!!!!!!!! LOL
I'll post soon.
Have a great day/evening.
Monday, June 9, 2008
But I don't want to rish things since it is my last baby.........time flies by SOOOOOOO fast and you can't get it back. I remember when Britt was first learning to talk and walk.............and when Matt was first trying to play sports LOL......should have seen that!!!!!! Ahhhh, I miss those days. They grown up sooo fast. Anyway, better enjoy the time now.
Anyway, I'm going to lay down now. Getting tired.
I'll post you all later.
Sunday, June 8, 2008
But today was a good/fun day for us! Went to one of my friend's b-day party. I had a good time............kids weren't there because of the drinks that were being given out. So it was nice having just 'us' adults there. LOL
But of course since I'm pregnant, couldn't have any drinks. Oh well, I'll live. Mark had only two drinks.........the party started around 2:30 and ended at around 5:00. Seen many, many friends that I haven't seen in a LOONGGG time!!!!!!! That was nice being able to see them.
Anyway, besides that happening today.......the kids were at home being watched by my mother. Boy, were they mad that they couldn't stay home ALONE!!!! I mean, god knows what they would do if they were. Not saying they are bad kids.........you just never know!!!!!!!! But mom left when we returned home. Now.......I have five kids at my house. No notice or nothing. Great, huh???!!!! Matt has 1 friend over and Britt has 2 friends over!! Wonderful!!!!!!!! I have no problem with it but I could have gotten a notice. Don't ya think??!
Well, I'm going to lay down. Had a fun day but I am worn out!!!! Going to read the newspaper and watch some TV. Sound fun??? Maybe not, but it'll do for me!!!!!! Post you soon.
Have a great night and here's to a great week ahead. ;-)
Saturday, June 7, 2008
Haha, the first one I posted (sorry they all get messed up!!!!) was the one that read 'Mommy, when I grow up, I want to be a total bitch just like you.' LOL.........had me laughing!!!!! And the rest are some that I enjoy.
But anyway, hope you enjoy...........Mark is moving in his sleep.......like always and has his foot 'up' my butt. LOL so I'm gonna go now.
Brittney did such an AMAZING job tonight!!!!!!!!!!!! I am just SOOOOOOO happy and proud of her!! She did her tap first, then ballet and finally, jazz! Got to take tons of pictures........and will try later on (maybe tomorrow?) to post them onto here so ya can see. But like I said, don't count on me LOL!!!! But I'll try......I'll give ya that much ;-).
Okay and even though I took MANYYYYY pictures, there were still those damn 'blurry' ones.....................oh well!! But I am happy to say that Mark actually took some great, clear videos. Ahhh, it works for him and NOT for ME??!!! Psssssh, okay. Hahahaha, just kidding.
But yeah, Britt looked so good and did so well. Words can't even say how proud I am of her...........
It actually ended at around 6:20 and we got out at around 6:35. Then, we headed to eat at AppleBee's. She wanted to eat there, so there it was. Actually thought the food was great!!!
Anyway, I'm in bed right now, watching me some TV. Hubby is sleeping.........he was worn out.......he had his arms up the whole time because he was filming and his arms were killing him LMAO! But he needs his rest so I'm not gonna wake him up.
Tomorrow, we're going to a friend's birthday party.......her real birthday was last Saturday but she didn't get a chance to celebrate so we're doing that tomorrow!!!!! NO kids allowed.....................because of the fact that there beer and wine being given out. Too bad I'm pregnant.....can't have any of that. LOL
Well, I'm missing most of the movie, so I'll post you later.
Hope you had a great night.
Anyway, she's in three numbers........jazz, tap, and ballet!!! I have my camera all set and Mark has the video camera ready..........he does all the video taping Ha, I can't fool with all of that!! Already have my hands busy on the camera AND trying to make sure the pictures come out okay. Uuuuuuugh, that's a job!!!! Last year, the pictures were blurry. I took about 65 pictures and only 25 were clear, good pictures. So I gotta make sure it gets 'clear' this time!!! LOl.
Sorry about rambling on.........
The revue should be over @ 6:45 and then, we'll go out to eat. Don't know where yet, have to let Britt decide......JOY!! Nah, just kidding.....she actually picks good places to go eat ;-)
But I'll 'try' to post some pictures of the revue and Britt..........I said 'try' so don't count on it LOL.
Have a great night and I'll post later.
Might get on later.
PYS. 'Post you Soon'
Friday, June 6, 2008
Ahhhh, oh well. To be honest, I kinda did miss them last weekend :P.
Anyway, we have to go to Britt's dance revue on Saturday (tomorrow, actually) and that's for 4. That's on Saturday and Sunday, birthday party to go to for a friend of mine. So it should be a great weekend.........almost as 'nice' as last weekend ;-).
Sorry I wasn't able to post a new blog on Wednesday night like I said I would, but the boys were so busy swimming and having fun, that I was just paying attention to them and by the time I got home, I was worn OUT!!!!!! LOL
I did actually bring my laptop to the pool.....as I always seem to forget it......but the time when I do, I don't use it....ashame, huh???!!
And yesterday, had a doctor's appointment and then went out to eat with 'hubby'. It was nice!!!!!! And great news, the baby is doing FINE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Ah, I was so relieved. One more appointment w/ doc and then it's time for my final delivery........exciting!! And yeah, this is the last baby. Getting too old for any more LOL.
Well, I hope you all are having a great day.......I'm going to sit outside with Mark and we're making some lemonade...yummy!
Post you guys later!
Have a wonderful weekend!!!
Wednesday, June 4, 2008
But if you're really smart, you'll know what it means. ;-)
Today I actually went shopping with Brittney and went out to Wal-mart to buy some things for the house that needed......ex: shampoo, body wash, FOOD, etc. I gotta tell ya, we are always running low on food and I think that's cause my kids don't know when to stop eating hahahaha. I tell them to slow down on the food but guess they don't know how.
My husband is another one...........................LOVES to eat and I think that's where they get the eating from, don't ya agree??!!!
So, tomorrow I go and check up on the baby. Mark is actually taking off of work so he can go with me! I am excited because he hasn't gone in awhile with me. So, can't wait!!!!!! Hoping everything is going to be fine, which I'm sure it is but you never know. Wish us luck..........only 15 more days of being 'pregnant'.
Well, tonight I'm going to take Matthew and his friend to the movies and then swimming.....I know, I know. You're probably thinking, 'Swimming, after movies????' Yeah, they love swimming at night. It's crazy. LOL and Brittney is inviting her two friends over to sleep, so it's going to be a crazy, wild night!!!! Can I just say 'HELP??!!' Ha!
Gonna go get ready to bring the boys. I'll post you all whenever I get the chance..........might be able to get online to tonight and post of things. We'll see.
Have a wonderful evening/night.

Monday, June 2, 2008
Wow. I had a GREAT & RELAXING weekend with Mark because the kids were away for the weekend. So when I woke up yesterday morning, I turned over to Mark and was like, " Ahhh, it's already Sunday, which means only a few hours before the kids come home". LOL!!!!!!! So, in the little time we had left with each other, we went to the park and I actually WALKED! Ever since I found out that I was having a baby, I didn't want to walk....no way. But yesterday, I did for some reason........but that was good. ;-) Anyway, we walked for about 20 minutes and then went out for 'brunch'. Went to iHOP and had a nice time along with some great food. I just love breakfast food!! But by the time we returned back home, it was around 2 PM and Matthew's little friends called and said that they won't be home til around 5. Boy, if I would have known that then Mark and I could have done some other things.......but we decided to lay in bed and watch TV. Britt didn't get home til about 7:30 and poor thing was tired when she walked into the door.......went straight to her room. I walked into her room at about 8:45 and she was alseep. Woooooow.....I never would think she would go to bed that early on a summer night!!!! But she was really tired. Matt, on the other hand......didn't go to bed until 11:45. Crazy child I tell ya! Lol.
Anyway, have lots of things going on this week:
Doctors on Thursday to check up on the 'new' baby. Ahhhhh, almost there!!!!! I can't wait.....this is exciting.
Matt has this 'sports camp' this whole week.....he likes sports so we had signed him up for it, which gives him something to do.
This whole week I have to run errands and clean the whole house....uuugh hahaha.
And Saturday...is Britt's dance revue. She's excited.....can't wait to see how she does!
Well, gotta run. I hope you all had a great Monday.
Post you all tomorrow.
