The Snow is finally starting to melt...


Aubryn helped her uncle Tim build a SNOWMAN.

Well to me it looked half pig/half bear!

Still so cute though!
Aubryns favorite Uncle Tim came all the way from North Carolina to have Christmas with us.
She was beyond HAPPY!

I am enjoying the freezing cold but so ready for the snow to be gone and the rain to come.
But not quite ready to take all my decorations down.
I think I'll wait till John comes home im March.
Hope everybody has a FUN and SAFE New Years Eve!
God Bless!

Merry Christmas and happy holiday

We spent our christmas this year with the Mawet Family and boy did we have fun. Well at least I did. Some people were CRANKY but I was filled with the SPIRIT of Christmas. It was a very SAD and LONELY Christmas for my little Aubryn...not having daddy around this year was hard for her. She got some very nice things and was very appreciative. She loved everything and made sure we all knew that. Her favorite thing she got was her trampoline. Ash didnt care much about his presents. He had so much fun with the wrapping paper and bows. SILLY BOY! And he loved standing/climbing on his presents. We also had a white Christmas this year. And it was so BEAUTIFUL!

Snowed in and loving it!

We definately are going to have a white Christmas and I am extremely OK with that! Its freezing COLD outside...just the way I like it. I love this season of cold, snow, icy roads, Hot Cocoa, electric blankets/throws and best of all being stuck inside with the family! And Aubryn LOVES to where her scarfs. Thats probably her FAVORITE part of being outside in the cold.

And this is nothing! We are suppose to get up to 8in of snow tomorrow night-thursday and more snow again on Saturday. Im so glad my Christmas shopping is done. No last minute shopping this year!

So I hope everybody drives safe over the next week or so and enjoy the snow! I know we will!

Its that time again...

We just signed our life away again. Another 6 more years in the Military. Im actually really EXCITED! And we got a nice signing bonus.

Im interested to see where we go this time around and if we even leave Washington state at all. John still has a long time in Iraq(Nov 2009) so If we move it wont be for a while.

Christmas picture disaster

My Christmas STINKERS!
Aubryn & Ash

Today my best friends and I took all 10 of our children to JcPennys to have our Christmas pictures done.
All though we looked cute wearing matching shirts(green and red) it was quite the adventure Im not willing to take ever again.
My daughter is not the funnest picture taker and she was miserable. Tears everywhere. I was literally losing my mind trying to keep all the kids in line. It was so crowded and hot that I was starting to have hot flashes and lose my cool.
Bribbing did not work for Aubryn she just would not smile. So after our group picture I attempted to do family pictures and forget it. Still no smiles! Just more whining!LOL! By now Im in tears. And had a really bad headache. Ash was sticky everywhere from his candycane, Aubryn half dressed so I gave up. Called it quits!
I was so mad at the horrible service that I almost didnt buy any pictures. Luckly there were a few cute ones. I just wanted a nice picture to send to my husband in Iraq.
Earlier in the morning before we left I was able to get a few cute pictures of the kids at home.

Things are finally starting to get better

Baby BUMP Pictures. Getting bigger by the day!
19 weeks Prego
24 weeks Prego!

So I went to the MFM (Maternal Fetal Medicine) doctor yesterday and got WONDERFUL news. My cervex has completely closed and the baby is starting to grow on target. He is a pound and a half. I am now off of bedrest and l hope it stays that way...Cause its definately hard to be on bedrest and raise children. These weekly shots of PROGESTERONE are actually working and its a good thing because they dont feel very good.

I am also starting to gain weight finally. I am at 4 lbs now. And will be 25 weeks along on SAT.

The doctor says no more babies. So Im considering getting my tubes tied. If I wait till my husbands home from deployment for him to get fixed I'll end up pregnant again. Its just my LUCK!
Also I have some good new. John is going to get to come home in March after the baby is born for 2 weeks. Im so EXCITED.
And I am so Excited to go Christmas shopping now that I can walk around for hours. And I dont have to worry about dialating.
God is GOOD!
But Im off to bed. good night all!
Sleep tight!
