Moving Update

Hello all! I feel so out of the loop with the moving and the holiday! We are almost finished with the house in CC and of course we are living out of boxes in Marysville.

Just a quick update I will email you all with my new address/phone number soon. Also you can reach me by cell phone if needed.

As most of you know we had a Thanksgiving hosted by Alice Carpenter. Alice wasn't able to make it so we all took turns and visited her at Meadowlark on Thursday.
She passed away this weekend and her service will be sometime this week. Please keep Brian and his family in your prayers.

Thank you!

Lila Update-1 lb. 12 oz.

Lila is growing like a weed as you can see in the title she is almost 2 lbs! I am also elated to say that she is still healthy! Praise God! I however still have placenta previa. It is not likely for that to change so when I see the OB specialist on Dec. 8Th I am sure he will start me on bed rest. Just saying that word makes me cringe.

For those of you that know me know that I am going to be going crazy for the next 2 1/2 months. However I have a challenge I will be posting after I hear that DrEaDeD word. Be on the lookout for that. It will be really fun and I can't wait to see what you all come up with! :)

Here is the most adorable picture of my daughter EVER!! Oh my goodness, I just giggled when I saw her chubby cheek AND she has her mom's nose. (One of my favorite features about me :)

Thank you all for continuing to pray for Lila and I! We are blessed and THANKFUL that she is healthy!

Top 5 reasons why I can't sleep

I am a night owl that is wanting to convert to being a morning person! I try every month to convince myself that I am going to start going to bed earlier. Then week after week I am up past midnight. I would say that my bedtime is 12:30!! Ughh. I would like to be in bed like a "normal" person around say 10:30pm. Why is that so hard? Well I will tell you...

1. That is when I get my cleaning done
2. It is my "ME" time
3. I am blogging/reading blogs
4. I am eating my hidden chocolate bar
5. I am reading a good book with NO interruptions

Okay, so for all of you morning people what's your secret? Do tell...

Lila Update

On Tuesday we drove to Omaha to see our OB specialist. We got to see our little Lila. She is super cute just look at that profile! The boys were excited to be able to tell me where her nose, eyes, and hands were. We will be 24 weeks on Saturday. She is 1 lb. 6oz. and is healthy. God is Good!

I still have placenta previa and her head is resting on the placenta. The placenta is also attached to my scar tissue and it's called placenta accreta. They won't know how deep the attachment is until the delivery of the placenta at birth. We go see the Dr. again on Dec. 8Th and if at that time we still have placenta previa I will be on bed rest.

In the sonogram picture you can see her on the left side and then you see a line (that is the scar tissue) then you see black open space which is more uterus. So the scar tissue has walled off a portion of my uterus. I hope seeing a picture can help you understand more. It is hard to explain.

We are praying everyday that I don't start bleeding and that she can stay inside until term! I can't say thanks enough to all of you praying for Lila!! My heart longs to hold this little girl in my arms and watch her grow up to become a beautiful woman. The love that I have for her is so powerful and it keeps me grounded each and every day. I am thankful for god, family, and friends in my daily life!

Funnest Leaf Year EVER!

This from my 5 year old after I let them play in the leaf pile. While we are on this topic let me just say that I h*** (dislike very much) raking. It makes no sense to me at all. I see all these neighbors raking, and raking, and raking. No not just one weekend but every weekend. What is the point? I am just waiting for a big gust of wind to take my leaves east. Sorry neighbor!

Okay off my soapbox! :) However I do enjoy the falling leaves b/c it is free entertainment for my boys. I love seeing them happy and smiling. Look at those sweet faces! :) They will rake, roll, and throw them. Enjoy the pics!

Let the fun begin

The creativity is in full swing today as we received our paint set! My dear friend, Brenda has an amazing blog where she shows her true talent for cardmaking and scrapbooking. She has so many wonderful creations! Take a look here. She was giving away a paint set or clear alphabet stamp set and I chose the paint set. Guess what I WON!!

Today was the perfect day to receive this package! The weather is cold, gloomy, and Owen didn't have school. Here are their paintings.

Thank you Brenda for the wonderful package and thanks to Kidkraft too!
