Mary had her first dance recital and was way excited for it. She walked out, looked up, walked off. We finally got her to stand out there. Her second recital was one week later. I begged her to dance. I bribed her with a new barbie doll. Still I was not convinced that she would dance. Her teacher had told me that she did it really well. Mary told me that she was going to dance, she walked out with her class, and DANCED!!!!! I am so proud of her, she was so cute, and did a great job.

Not much going on...

I have been a slacker again at posting. I just don't have a lot to say. I am very, very tired, and nauseated most the time. Could be worse. Joe said that he was worried about me being so tired. I tried to explain it to him. I am only eating about 4-5 oz of food (protein) about 3 times a day, and the baby is taking most of it. That and my body is working very hard to help this baby grow. I am trying to eat more often, but it is hard when every time I eat I am nauseated for about 1-2 hours after.

On other things. Mary had her first dance recital at a Assisted Living Center. She was excited to do it and walked out then looked up and walked off. I helped her go back on and her teacher talked to her. She stood on the stage and just watched. Hoping that this Thursday performance goes better. Her teacher tells me she does the dance very, very well. Hope we get to see it. She is very cute in her costume, I will post a picture later.

Bobby is doing good, just having fun with the snow. He had his Music n' Me performance awhile ago and did an excellent job. He had a solo part and was so cute. He loves to sing. He can sing most of the Christmas songs that come on the radio. He has an ear for lyrics.

I am going to try and sleep. That is the funny part. I am really tired, yet can't sleep. I know, it is my bodies way of getting me ready for a newborn.

What a MESS!!

Talk About TuesdayI thought I would try this out. I heard about this on The Lazy Organizer, go check her out, she is great. I just took an Organizing Class from her and learned a lot, not just about organizing.

So I had to get my carpets cleaned and didn't have enough time to fully clean so this is what happened. I had to get everything off the floor and it took about 2 days to dry, because of the cold. Me and the kids have been sleeping on the couch, which the kids love.



Now comes the job of going through everything and putting it away. I am going to get rid of a lot. I am going to be selling a lot of things to so stay tuned. I have already gone through the kids toys and got rid of a lot.
Wish me luck!!! I am going to need it.

I hate the Dentist!!!

I really like my Dentist, but I hate going. I have had a tooth ache for about a week so I went in today to see what was up. I have two cavities right by each other. One is very deep and he drilled it and put a temp. filling in until next week and then he will fix both. The filling he put in has some thing in it to take away the pain. He hopes he can fix it with out doing a root canal or pulling the tooth out. YUCK!!! My cheek and gums are raw. I don't like going to the dentist, but I need to go more than once in 5 years. Bad me!! :(

Bob and Mary telling our new exciting news!!!
We are all way excited, and Bobby is counting
down the days!

The Test!!!! We just found out today! I was making the sign for Joe with the kids and I had Bobby read the sign to me, which took a little bit of practice. When he finally understood what he was reading, he said, "I don't know why, but I am really, really happy and I want to cry." Which he did, which made me cry. We had a whole bunch of balloons on the kitchen floor with things written on them, like 'It's a ???' - Then I called Joe to see when he was coming home and told him the kids were doing arts and crafts and had a surprise for him. He came in and looked at the balloons and said whats this? The kids ran in with the poster saying Dad Dad Dad!!!! Joe is very excited, to say the least, he has been very, very baby hungry for along time. I am due around the 20th of July, my daddy's birthday!

Black Island Farms - Syracuse


Mary loved to climb and slide over and over again.

Bobby thought he was cool being king of the hay stack, which was pretty high.

This slide looked fun until you got to the top. It is very steep and I was scared.
Bobby loved it and went down many times. I only did twice, first with my eyes closed.


Mary was so proud of her little pumpkin. Bobby wanted the biggest!


This is us on the hay ride. We all had a great time. We did the corn maze with a bunch of friends and spend a few hours playing. This was one of the Home school activities that we have done this month.

This is the view from the corn maze bridge. It was fun being out on the farm.

Soccer Bob!


Bobby is #7 - He is a great defensive player.


We were missing 2 players at this game, so they all played the whole game.
Bobby really enjoys playing soccer. He has told me a few times that he is playing for the rest of his life.
