Butterfly Bash- A Sucess

Whew, the party is over. We celebrated Jenna's 2nd Birthday today, with a butterfly bash. We had lots of friends and family over. We played flower walk, butterfly toss, and skittle count for games. Jenna got lots of nice gifts and seemed to love the experience. Dustin said she was a little princess.

I am starting to wonder where Spring went. Today it is 30 and raining! YUCK! We had a great lightning show the other night. I am really looking forward to some sunshine. We were able to take a couple walks and go on the go cart with the kids.

37 weeks pregnant today, and I am ready to be done. Starting to get more uncomfortable and looking forward to being able to see my feet again. Some contractions are starting and still have heartburn.

Beautiful Day !

The sun is out, and the weather is warming up! YEAH! The kids are enjoying playing outside. Easter was lots of fun with the kids. It looked like Christmas with all the toys they received. We were able to spend time with family which is always my favorite part of the holidays.
I am looking forward to not being pregnant! 33 more days, yes I am counting. The baby still moves a ton and sleeping is getting to be a big challenge. The baby stuff is washed and ready.
Derek has an ear infection but hopefully is on the mend. We are trying to decide what we are going to do for school next year with him. I am leaning more towards keeping him home another year. He is only 3!
In other news, I am getting a new part time job. I am going to be working a couple hours a week at our local post office.
Jenn and Alex came to visit this week. It sure would be nice if they were closer.
