Update again....

I've been meaning to get on here and update but I have been super busy with the baby. She is one of those babys who doesn't like to be put down, lol. She is my angel, don't get me wrong, I just wish she would pick up a hobby, like watching tv, lol. Just kidding. I kind of threw out the rule book with this baby and instead of making it easier, it's harder in the long run.

I guess you do what you have to do to make things work. Parker didn't like her crying so I didn't really let her cry much. Now I have a little angel that has to nap in our arms and sleep with us. Oh well, I guess they are only little once. This is my last one and I have to spoil her. I love holding her so much. We are working on having her nap in her crib a little. We need to get more consistant with it. We want to work up to her sleeping in it at night too.

She has a new tooth poking through. We all got so excited about it! She is just the most precious thing. I feel bad for her though, I can tell it's hurting her.

I'm going stir crazy without a car right now. We've been taking a lot of walks. Hopefully this week or next we'll get it fixed.

Parker is doing well but not like the countdown to school. I have to say that I'm dreading it a lot myself. I don't like it when he's unhappy.

Molly is going to camp this weekend. She is really excited. Sometimes she gets nervous and thinks about not going but I know she really wants to. It's a girls camp and they do alot of fun stuff.

I've been doing a lot of reading lately when I can sneak the time. Mostly it's when she is napping or when I can't sleep. I get addicted to a book and then can hardly put it down. Molly's becoming quite the bookworm herself. Today I made her watch "Pollyanna" with me. That was my favorite movie as a kid. She ended up liking it but didn't think she would. Funny girl.

Well, that's about it. Nothing too exiting to post. Just hanging in there during some rough times at the moment. It always gets better though and you always learn something. I hope everyone is enjoying their summer.

Uh oh.....

Our car broke down today. This really stinks. I was taking Molly, Macey and Molly's cousin Shelby to the river and the car started acting funny. I pulled over and started it again. It went but started reving up really loud. I called Bobby to come save us. He thinks it might be the transmission. That is all we need. He's going to check it tomorrow to see if it's a hose or something else. My sister had it towed home for us. Just when I thought things were looking up, this happens. I guess I should just be glad that we weren't that far from home and that we got pulled off the highway.

We actually ended up under an overpass. The kids loved it for some reason. All except Macey, who made good use of her diapers while we waited. Parker was itching to get out of the car, and when we let him, he climbed all the way up the side of the underpass. I had to have my brother in law climb up and get him down. I guess Parker has a little monkey in him.

I'm glad we are all home and safe. I guess I won't be driving for a while. At least it's summer and not school time. Something to be thankful for.

Wow, it's July

It seems like yesterday it was June 1st. How wierd is that. I'm kind of missing school being in, I hate to say it. We are enjoying summer, but it's a lot of work. No, I take that back, I miss some things about school. Summer is nice, I love being around the kids and doing things they like to do. Today Molly, Macey and I sat on the porch and talked. We played with the watering can some. We filled the bird bath and let Macey put her feet in. It was really cute. Molly made a hop skotch out front and decorated our wooden bear for 4th of July. Parker was inside on the computer, the party pooper.

Earlier I went grocery shopping with all 3 kids. The store I go to has these nice new big shopping carts with seats for 2 kids. Molly and Parker rode in the seats and Macey was in the front of the cart. Silly kids. They are too big for that stuff but they still love it. It got hard to push after a while and I had to kick Molly out. We have to drive out of town just to buy the kind of sasauge Parker eats. It's one kind and it has to be beef. They don't have it in our town or the next town over. Its' one of his main staples so it has to be done.

All of the kids were really good at the store and well contained. Even Macey didn't make a peep. Then both kids helped load up the groceries and bag them. Molly didn't want Parker to help, but I let him and gave him easy jobs to do. She was afraid he would put bread in with something hard or something. Funny girl. She worries too much. Afterwards, on the way out, Molly had some change and tried the toy machine. She won a whoopie cushion. She put in on Parkers seat and he laughed and laughed. I had to listen to farting noises for quite a while. I was fine with it though, I love to hear them so happy and playing together. Macey sure looked surprised at all the noise though, lol.

I have a couple pictures to post, as usual. Tomorrow we are going to a 4th of July parade and then to my sisters in-laws for a bbq. I'll have to take lots of pictures. Molly and I are going to make a desert to take. I have a hard time with the 4th becuase of Parker's sensativities to the noise of the fireworks. I can't keep Macey out late either. I think I'll go home with Parker and Macey about 8 and let Bobby stay with Molly. I think we can see some pretty good one from our house anyways. Parker gets better with them every year, who knows, this year he might like them. I know he likes to do sparklers.

Everyone have a great 4th. I am so thankful for my wonderful family. Someone whose name is the name of a purple flower is especially special to us!
