Come on second trimester! HERE I COME!
This week's been rough.
Not nausea and pukeing like all the weeks prior, but some intense hormonal bursts. I'm wiped out! I want to lay around and sleep, but can't sleep. The headaches have been really bad. My uterus has exploded as well as bust size the last two weeks. I can't lay on my stomach or back because of the weight of my uterus. Crazy how the last two weeks you can physically see the reason I feel so cruddy.
I'm so excited to have another child! My husband blessed me with some units from Ikea for the kids room and for the NEW schoolroom! I'll have to work on getting some pictures... The bedroom and upstairs is all organized and in progress for getting ready for baby! YAY!
This pregnancy is going FAST so far! I feel like I got a positive test maybe a month ago and I'm already 12 weeks!?!? WOW! I'm thankful it's going quick though.
We've fallen further behind in school then I would like, but that's somewhat expected with how sick I've been. I finally got a day or so to deep clean the house. It was SO needed and SUCH a blessing!
My husband has finals this week, clean up next week, then he has a month off school! I can't even wrap my mind around him just going to work and then coming home! It's going to be SOOOO nice!

There was a Santa, Mrs. Clause, and Frosty the Snowman there as well as cookies, doughnuts, hot chocolate and other activities like coloring snowflakes ect. Elias was OBSESSED with the snowman! He wouldn't even do his project because he needed to keep an eye on "that snowman". It's all he talked about; even hours after we left! I got a picture of him with the snowman that I wanted to print out for him. The snowman went on break and took his costume off and came back over to see Elias. I said, "Look Eli! It's the snowman!" "No it's not!" he said, thouroughly examining the red haired man. HAHAHA.

The whole ride home he kept saying, "That Snowman had to go home. He'll be back. He's gonna get me some candy. He'll be back. Mom! That Snowman went home? Why? Mom! He's gonna come back?..."
|Ahavah had a strategic plan on how she wanted to paint her project.|
|Elias finally decided to help his dad with his project and stop stalking the snowman for a few minutes.|
|Alecia's my naturally-inclied builder. She usually can just be handed the materials and follow the directions herself. She may need help hammer nails into a tricky place, but she's the most independent with a hammer.|
See if the Home Depot in your area has this and take the kids! It's a BLAST! I would suggest taking your husband or at least someone to help you. I tried to go without Alex twice and there are four little kids needing my help with every step... it's a bit overwhelming. Especially if you go to a city Home Depot where there are 100 kids coming through to do crafts. The suburban Home Depot seemed to have 20-30 kids that came through in the 2 hours we were there.
