The other day, Olivia was crawling through the kitchen. She crawled right past the sweet potato fry (seen on the left) and was headed for a vanilla wafer (seen under her high chair). Well, she got stuck. But she was using her arms to pull herself and along behind her came the chair. It was hysterical! Again, I wish I could put video on here because this picture just doesn't do it justice!
I haven't taken hardly any pictures this week. We are in full-blown house-hunting mode. Truthfully it's pretty stressful and I honestly wish we weren't having to do it right now. I'm ready for it to all be over with. I've been consumed with it and feel like it's taken over my life! I guess because we only have such a short window to do it that I feel like I have to devote all of my waking hours (and apparently half of my sleeping hours) to taking care of this.
Tonight, though, Theo and I are going out on a date! This may sound lame, but I think we're just going to go to the mall. I can't remember what it's like for the two of us to shop without the kids. We'll probably go to the bookstore too and have some coffee and maybe see a movie if there is anything worth seeing. I don't even have anything in particular to shop for...I just want to walk around, hold hands with Theo, and look through stores without hearing any whining or crying! Plus, it's supposed to be in the teens tonight so we want to stay somewhere where it's warm!
Tomorrow, I don't think we have any major plans. Theo has a paper due Sunday so I'm sure he'll be busy with that. I'm going to try and do something fun with the kids because my attention has been focused elsewhere the past couple of weeks.
Sunday is my day to volunteer! I'm looking forward to it. I absolutely LOVE my church! That is one good thing about us staying here. I'm glad I don't have to leave New Life!
We met over nine years ago and have been married for seven years. We have traveled all over together, have shared good times and bad, and now spend most of our time chasing our kids around! We believe God chose us for each other and we strive daily to keep him at the center of our marriage.
Our energetic six year old, and firstborn. He's a self procalimed genius. He loves playing with his friends, watching anything on PBS and VeggieTales, building with blocks, practicing his cartoon artist skills. He rules the roost and we couldn't imagine it any other way.
Our three year old daughter, a precious princess with her daddy wrapped around her finger. She is the daughter I always knew I would have long before I ever got married. She is a smiler and talker and lover of food, hugs and kisses, making puzzles, helping mommy in the kitchen, and loves both of her brothers (mostly!) She is a budding ballerina but loves the play in the mud and wrestle with the boys too. She is the most beautiful girl we have ever seen and we look forward to watching her grow and change over the next several months.
Our baby of the family...a walking, talking destructacon. He is hillarious, keeps us on our toes and is the funniest little toddler going on grown man I've ever seen!
