I'll Be Back Soon!

Hello friends! I know it has been quite awhile since I've posted and I apologize. I plan on posting regularly again in a few short weeks. Until then please know of my prayers for each one of you. May you have a happy and holy end of Lent and Easter!

Full Term!!!

Baby #4 is now officially ready to join us, this side of the tummy, ANY DAY!!! I can't believe we will hold him in our arms so soon! I have never made it to my due date and the Dr. says he doesn't expect me to make it to the due date with this one either. Please keep us all in your prayers over the next couple of days/weeks...a safe and healthy delivery/baby/mother is nothing short of a miracle and a smooth transition (with lots of littles all around, a new state/town/home, a new job, etc...) will take a lot of grace.

I'm off to pack my hospital bag!

You May Have Moved to a Small Town If...

1) You've memorized ALL of the major streets in the first 2 days.

2) You've seen motorists being pulled over by bicycle cops on 3 different occasions.

3) Verizon has no service in your entire town and doesn't pick up a signal until you are 20 minutes outside the city limits.

Yes. We live in a VERY small town...and I think we're gonna like it. : )


We left the Land of Enchantment the morning after my Mr's last final and have officially been somewhere over the rainbow for 1 week and 6 days. My Mr. started work 2 days after we arrived and loves his new job so far. It is such a gift for him to be teaching at a Catholic school again. We live in a beautiful old house (!!!) with wood floors (I won't mention the wallpaper...ahem), I found an OB/practice that I REALLY like here in town,  and craigslist has been VERY good to us.

Thank you all for your prayers as we continue this transition. Please keep them coming as baby #4 will be joining us on this side of the womb in only a few short weeks.

Goodbye Toes!

This week I reached a new benchmark. Little #4 is now a little over 33 weeks along and it is no secret that I have been "putting on the pounds". It seems that one day I looked down and my pretty little *GULP* swollen pink polished toes were fully visible and the next day "POOF!" they were gone!

Goodbye toes!

The vain side of me says "Gosh you're getting BIG!", but the wonderful truth is that this is only one more physical sign that a baby is housed within me. What a beautiful reality that is!

Only a few more weeks little one. <3

Words to Live By

"The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway.
Give the world the best you have and it may never be enough. Give your best anyway.
For you see, in the end, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway."
— Mother Teresa

Yesterday my Mister found a small(ish) Tupperware of these tasty morsels of chocolatey, peanutty, goodness stashed away in the kitchen cupboard:

What I'd like to know is HOW these got into my cupboard and WHO ate the rest of the bag?!

I'm sure I have no idea.   ; )
