Only 4 More Weeks!

I am so excited about the holiday season peaking around the corner. Only four more weeks and we'll be off for Thanksgiving! I am ready for a week break! I think my students are too!!

We had a wonderful weekend! Saturday, Roger and I took the boys to Kid's Kingdom for a picnic and playing. They absolutely loved it! Then, we went home and just relaxed, played outside and enjoyed the afternoon. I told Roger that it was so nice not to have somewhere we had to we many times do on the weekends. I got my house all nice and clean and fresh smelling...I LOVE a clean house! But, as many of you doesn't stay that way for long!

We had great services at church yesterday! My Dad preached an alarming message at the morning service concerning the upcoming election and the possibilities of changes for Christians if a certain individual is elected. The important thing that he emphasized is that God already knows the outcome and we have to trust in HIM to take care of things. He is still on the throne and is in control. We need to be telling others about Him as we may not have long until the Lord returns for his children! I pray that the Lord would help me to be more bold for Him! I need more faith too...cause if we worry we don't trust and if we trust we don't worry! I sometimes worry when I should be trusting!!

I am now 14 weeks and 2 days pregnant...just 26 weeks to go...I know that seems like a lot but the holidays always pass quickly and that will at least get me to the 1/2 way mark. I am still wearing my normal clothes (Thank you Lord!!) but I'm starting to see somewhat of a bulge in the midline area...besides complaints here. I am very anxious to feel the baby move which will hopefully be within the next month. I still remember feeling Andrew and Ben and what a blessing that it truly is to feel a miracle inside of you!!

Well, I hope all is well with everyone! Keep me posted!

It's Monday, AGAIN???

Where does the weekend go? It seems like the week creeps by and the weekends zoom! I guess we try to do so much on Sat. and Sun....making the time go by fast. Friday night the boys and I went to see the homecoming court at West Lincoln...several of my present and former students were in the court...the girls were all beautiful...and the guys were dressed very sharp! I finally agreed to go for chinese with Roger Friday night...he loves it but I have had no desire for "Bo Bo's" since I got pregnant. It wasn't all that bad but I really made out like I was sacrificiing :)

Saturday, bright and early, we (Mama, the boys, & I) headed to the Wesson Flea Market. It wasn't all that impressive after going to Canton but we stayed about an hour and then headed back to work at the church...we are having revival this week at church and had to get beds and rooms ready. I ran home to take the boys to Bailey's birthday party and then Roger, the boys and I headed back to the church to help...we goofed off, rode around and then ate supper at Taco Bell (no, I didn't cook much this weekend!!).

Sunday morning I was up early cooking for dinner after church...boy did we have a spread. I made gumbo for the first time which turned out pretty good I thought. I couldn't really taste good though...I'm fighting a cold and you know being pregnant you can't take much of anything. We really had good services! We are looking forward to the Lord doing great things this week in our hearts and in our church! We surely need our fires relit!!

And then today, back to school. It is going to be an exhausting week. Don't get me wrong..I love having revival but it will definitely wear you out. I have to run to town after school today to pick up things to cook for tomorrow night...Ms. Stacy and I are cooking for the evangelists. I started laundry this morning so I guess I can finish after church know what they say..."A man works from sun to sun but a woman's work is never done!" I do believe it!!

On a final vomiting for a whole week! THANK YOU LORD!! I still have the nausea a little but NOTHING like it was! I am now 13 weeks and two days! Just 27 more weeks to go! ;)Ya'll have a great week!!

1st Pictures of Baby #3 - 12 Weeks 3 Days

HOW WONDERFUL THE LORD IS!! I was very blessed to see the baby in action yesterday afternoon at our first sonogram of baby #3. For the first little bit, the baby lay still with it's ankles crossed...then buddy did it start moving...trying to turn flips and moving it's feet and hands.

The boys were excited to see the's still a little hard for them to comprehend I think...especially since my belly is not yet poking out. The nausea is a little better...kinda comes and goes...thank the Lord! I can't wait for food to really look good again! I've lost 5 pounds so far....not that I didn't need to but I'd rather not do it that way :)

The baby measured a little bigger than expected so they are going to move my due date back three I am now due April 25. My next appointment is November 10th.
