We've been cleaning most of the weekend, sorry no pictures..YET! We've got about 7-8 bags going to the Thrift Store, a couple bags of trash, 2-3 containers that I have to go through this week and a lot of dust! I'll vacuum later....too much stuff now in the room. But it SURE is nice, using my new vacuum. That thing sucks up EVERYTHING and has a filter to help with allergies.. It was important we got something that works good, now that we'll have another baby crawling around in a couple months! We've been going through our office, which will be our little boy, Hunter's new room. We're getting there fast but after working on it all Sunday morning and afternoon, we had to walk away. I thought I'd have to go to work so I stayed home from Church yesterday. Mom took Hunter, though so he wouldn't miss it. We got SO much done. We still have some work to do but the hardest part is probably done. I can't believe ALL the stuff you accumulate when you get married!! I'm just hoping I can get a lot done tonite and tomorrow, after Hunter Man goes to bed
Wednesday, we go to the Circus and Thursday, I'm going out with my Mom and Grandmother. WHEW!!
Mike has his Motorcycle Course next weekend so he'll be gone Friday, Saturday and Sunday. I may get a lot done while Hunter sleeps but no painting yet....
I went to the Visitation yesterday afternoon, which was really nice. She looked really pretty and they had a really neat slide show with some wonderful pictures. She had a beautiful smile and it was wonderful to see her so happy, enjoying her grand kids and family. Afterwards, I stopped by Target to find Hunter some pants. I found him a cute outfit to have his picture taken Tuesday at school. The pants were a little long so I rushed them back over to my mom's house, and she hemmed them right away. (I was planning to leave them but she didn't mind doing them so I could take them with me) He's gone through a MAJOR growth spurt and now, his pants we got him right before Christmas are TOO short! He's really stretching up. (and fast)
Hope everyone has a great day. Not sure what the weather is like today but I'm ready for Spring!!

It's been a crazy week. Busy, Busy, Busy and this next week will be about the same..
I won't be at Church on Sunday, as I may have to go in to work. We had some remodeling done and some of us may go in to help clean up. After that, I'm going to a Visitation for a wonderful person from our Church. She had Cancer and passed away Friday morning. Although it's so sad she won't be with us anymore, we know in our hearts she's with the Lord in Heaven. She's not suffering anymore. She had the cutest personality, always cared about our family like we were her own, and her smile could light up a room. She will be truly missed!
We went and saw the new Veggie Tales movie tonight with Hunter at Cinema Cafe. It was really cute and he, of course loved it as much as we did. We're about ready for bed now. I'm exhausted. Mike got me some new Stereo speakers the other day for my SUV and installed them today. I painted the letters to spell "Hunter" and "Hannah" for their rooms. Hunter slept while we got a lot done.
We're going to the Circus Wednesday night and Thursday night, I think I'm going out with my Mom and Grandmother. Two nights in a row....whew....but ALL worth it.
OK, I'm falling asleep. Hope you all have a good Sunday and I'll try to post some pictures later.

I had a great evening with my family!! After Taco Bell, we stopped by Sonic and had a 99 cents JR Banana Split. It was JUST enough, a small amount of ice cream with a little strawberry, chocolate and pineapple topping. YUMMY! We had a coupon for ColdStone but decided we'd use it this weekend. I did NOT want to fight crowds on Valentine's day so we avoided it all together. Tonite, my parents are watching Hunter while we go to Olive Garden for dinner. We've still got some gift certificates so I'm looking forward to using them!! I'm looking forward to spending some time with Mike too. I'm more in love with him EVERY day. He's the best!! guess that's it for today. I have a Bridal Shower to go to tomorrow and Mike is working. My dad is watching Hunter during his nap time while we're gone and then, when Mike gets home, we're starting to clear out the other room for the Baby. I'm SO excited about getting started. We found a new bed set we like for Hunter's room and hope to get it this weekend. We'ge got some painting to do in both rooms and I'm VERY anxious to get started. Maybe this week....
Hoping I'll have time to do a little scrapbooking Saturday night or Sunday afternoon. I've made a ton of cards lately, which was really fun but I'm itching to get cropping. I've gone through and "purged" alot of my stuff. I need to get rid of what I don't use. It's getting so organized I can hardly stand it:) Here are the cards I made for our parents. (my parents got married on Valentine's Day so that's why it says Anniversary) They are all REAL sweethearts too so I wanted to remember them. I'm not sure where we'd be without our parents.
Well, have a good weekend!! I'm excited about my "Date Night" tonite with my sexy husband!!

OK, the HIGHLIGHT of my weekend was the Ultrasound on Saturday. We found out we're having a GIRL!! We wanted a girl so bad!! SO, here she is...
Posted by Jenn at 11:25 PM
Yep, ONE day I'm well and now, my Hunter Man is sick. Just the last day or two, he's had a cough and his nose has been running clear stuff. We've been giving him couph and cold medicine but tonite, at dinner, he spiked a fever within minutes. Hunter doesn't complain. He doesn't cry when he feels bad. He never has. He just gets real tired when he gets a fever and he may cry then. He layed his little head on his seat at dinner (which he didn't take the first bite of) and I just knew something was up.
We took him to the Patient First near us, where they did a strep test, a Flu swab and they took his temps/vital signs. He had a 101.4 fever, tested positive for Strep AND the Flu, as well as a slight ear infection in his right ear. I couldn't believe it. We even asked him what hurt and he said that his ears were ok. It was the same Doctor that's usually there and so, he remembered him. He said he was a VERY sick little boy and he needed to rest all weekend. The only time he fussed is when he had to take his Ibroprofin. He usually takes his meds pretty good but I think he was ready for bed. He was so tired. We talked him into it and then, he got a sticker and a piece of Chocolate. He got an anitibiotic and another medicine to lessen the effects of the Flu.
One prescription they had there and the other one, Mike picked up at the store after we put Hunter to bed. He took it after he got home with it and then, went on back to sleep. It looks like I'm going to set my alarm for the middle of the night and check his fever periodically. Right now, he's been asleep for about an hour and his fever has dropped quite a bit. The poor guy is sweating like crazy.
We're going for our Ultrasound Saturday morning but Grandad said he'd sit with him while we're gone. He doesn't mind missing it (Hunter) and we told him we'd have pictures for him to see later. I'm looking forward to coming home and just holding my little boy. He was SO hot and weak tonite. I know fevers are your body's defense system at work but they sure scare me. He's may be sick but not the first complaint out of him. What a trooper!
If you get a chance, please say a prayer for my little guy. He's really precious. (hard to believe the picture below, in my previus post was just last night) Ok, I guess I'll have pictures to post later of our other new little baby. (Maybe it'll give me my, much needed MOJO so I can get some scrappin' done while Hunter sleeps) Guess I better head to bed now!!

Just sharing a picture of my Hunter Man Thursday night. He's a little OCD in his ways sometimes....LOL. He refuses to eat ANY grapes until they're all off the vine and in his bowl. He LOVES grapes, and loves most fruits and veggies for that matter. I'm glad for that. I believe he thinks his Gogort (that yogurt in a tube) or the bag of baby carrots are a REAL treat for him. I'm glad he doesn't want sweets and, as he says "Junk Food" first:)
What a joy that child gives me!! We thank God for him every day!!
I seem to be over the Flu now. I was home all day Thursday, resting. I had Diarrhea the night before and was exhausted by yesterday morning. I must have been dehydrated, because after taking my bath, I was dizzy and really lightheaded. I drank Ginger Ale most of the day and had some Jello, crackers and light foods. I'm still QUITE tired but I think if I drink fluids most of the day I should be better in NO time:)
Not sure what our plans are tonite but I could go for a salad bar Dinner at Ruby Tuesday's. (if you're reading this, Mike, HINT HINT:) It's so good, and healthy.
Tomorrow is our Ultrasound and we're excited, and a little nervous. We can't wait to see what the sex of our baby is but no matter what, God is in control and we'll be thrilled either way. I'll DEFENTLEY be posting some pictures this weekend.
We're got some work to do around the house this weekend so I'm not sure I'll get to my Crop Saturday but excited about getting things DONE lately!
I need to print some pictures for a Memory Album I'm working on for my Uncle Hudge. He passed away several years ago and was much like another Grandfather to me. I'm also working on an ongoing Scrapbook for our office at work. I'd like to get a good amount of work done on those this weekend. I ALSO need to start our NEW baby's Scrapbook. Hunter had the CM Baby album but since it's discontinued, I'll probably try to find one on Ebay. I LOVE it!
I hope everyone has a great Friday and Weekend!! God bless and Take Care!

Today has been crazy. And I hope to not relive it for a while. It was pretty the first part of the day and I think the temps may have made it to 80. WOW, I have Spring Fever. I'd like to hook my Camper up to the car and head out camping somewhere. Unfortunately, Mike had to take it down to get looked at this afternoon. It appears our skylight in the bathroom is leaking. He's sealed it up but every time it rains, it leaks stll, just a little bit to be annoying:) Can't wait to get it back. Just to know it's there if we want to go on a moment's notice.

These pictures are some of the ones from The Childrens Museum the other weekend. I hadn't felt good and forgot about uploading them. Blogger is giving me some crazy message that I'm out of memory or something...I have no idea but am TOO tired to investigate tonite:)
Posted by Jenn at 10:02 PM
Temps in the 70's today. It's REALLY hard for me to not plan a camping trip REAL soon but I know that these temps probably won't stay that long. If I'm not going to get ONE more snow then I'd LOVE for Spring to come early. Time is flying by and honestly, I need to slow the clock down a little. In just a couple months, our new baby will be here and we have lots to do. We're switching Hunter's room to our current office and making his room the nursery again. We're also having someone here soon to remodel our bathroom. It's been left quite a while and after that, we have other things to do to the house. We're having our hallway and kitchen floor replaced, our other bathroom painted and hopefully updated too and then, some work in our kitchen to get it remodeled. Eventually, we're going to be thinking about moving and those things have to be done. I'm excited, but nervous too at the thought of it all. Of course, I get excited about a new coat of paint, a new flag out for The Love Month, and just every day I have with my family. I guess, this weather just makes me want to open my windows, wash some curtains and change things around.LOL. I don't know where that leaves my scrapbooking addiction but it's nice to know I have a space to work when I only have a little time, here and there...
And no pictures today on my blog again! I better get busy tonite. We've been busy this week. Hunter got to watch Dumbo before going to bed since he was such a good boy yesterday. I've also got to order the pictures tonite for my Photo Shoot I did a couple weeks ago. And getting rid of boxes, a little every night. Whew!! I need a couple more hours in the day I think!
We got a good report on our dog, Bailey. His blood work came back fine so his skin condition is caused by some sort of Allergy. We just have to find out what it is and hope his new medicine will work. We went for another walk last night and it was WONDERFUL. It felt so good to breathe that fresh air, to know we're staying healthy and hopefully, keeping my weight down. My pregnancy weight is right where it should be but because of my sugar issues, I tend to gain more in a short amount of time after four or five months. We've been fruit and veggie junkies lately so hopefully it's working. We're going for another walk tonite since it's going to be EVEN warmer. If we walk around our block, it's about a mile. I wanted to walk another time around but the dog and Hunter were getting tired. But they enjoyed it and it's SO great to get outside
Well, gotta go eat my Raisin Bran Cereal before getting ready for work. God Bless and have a great day!!

Great temperatures here in Va. this weekend. We went to Church Sunday with light jackets and the sun was just shining! It was a great sermon from our pastor and I felt refreshed afterwards. On the way home, we stopped by Jason's Deli, where I had a delicous salad from their salad bar and a bowl of French Onion Soup. It's my usual, but it's SO yummy. I love salad bars! We went to see my grandmother in the Nursing home, who didn't look as good as last week and was asleep. Usually, we can rub her hand and wake her up but she was out cold and couldn't be waken. Hunter took it well and told her that he was sorry he missed her and loved her. (awww, I wanted to cry JUST at the sound of his sweet little voice) SO, we headed over to see our Granny and Papa before finally, heading home. They were in good spirits and glad to see the sun shining in. It was TRUELY a beautiful day. It was really Hunter's nap time but because it was later, we went home, changed clothes and headed for the Park. There was a lot of people there, playing and having a blast. We saw some of our friends from our church who had their grandson and nephew, Cameron. They play together at church in the Nursery and had an awesome time on the playground, and for a while too. When they left, we walked the track while Hunter got to ride his bike. We had our dog, Bailey with us so he could get some excercise. He seemed to have a great time too, to be outside and able to run around and smell EVERYTHING. (He's a beagle....'nuff said!) We had leftovers for dinner so we could enjoy Roast Beef, Carrots and Potatoes for dinner tonite and after Hunter's bath, he went to bed, with almost NO interruptions. I know he was exhausted, as well as Bailey. They were both quiet as a mouse. I barely hit the bed before I was out too. It was a long day but we truely, enjoyed the day to the fullest. Now, another week. It looks like warm temps again today and tomorrow so I think we're all going to be going for a walk tonite and tomorrow. (as long as there's no rain) Saturday is my Ultrasound and I can hardly wait. I'm nervous, but my biggest concern is to have a healthy baby. I know God is in control and that's enough for me. God bless and have a wonderful day!!

That's how my day has been! I got up early, after all I DO have a toddler! He woke us both up, telling us about what a pretty day it is. He was hungry so Daddy got him a banana and back to bed he went. Then, up a couple hours later for his breakfast. Mike took our dog to the Vet. That part was NOT super and if you don't mind, our Bailey could use some prayers. He has some sort of skin condition where his coat is rubbed and his skin is exposed. I know it bothers him. We've been giving him antibiotics for some time, as all the Doctors could tell us is that it seems to be an allergy infection. Well, it's spreading now all over and he's been pretty miserable. Today, they gave us MORE medicine and did some bloodwork. They're worried he might have some sort of disease that is causing it. I hope not, I'm praying. Bailey is like our "first child" and Hunter adores him, as we all do. Hopefully, some new meds will kick in and work soon!!
I had to make Hashbrown Casserole for work on Friday and promised the boys that I'd make some for them too. So, I made a big dish of it for them this morning and it was yummy. My dad wanted to take Hunter to get a haircut so I gave them a big container too. The things Grandparents will do to see their grandkids but I'm not complaining. How sweet. He stopped by their house before bringing him home and Hunter showed off his haircut. He got some yummy fruit and snacks that they're having for their "Superbowl Party" on Sunday.
After Hunter went down for his nap, I went to the mall and got my hair cut and highlighted. It feels SO good after a hair cut. I needed a little update, after getting my new glasses. They are SO different than anything I've worn before but I LOVE them. I'll try to post pictures tomorrow. I got told by THREE people at work that I look like the Naughty Librarian....LOL! Whatever! (but we had fun laughing over that one anyway) Makes you want to see them, right????? Just kidding!
Well, I'm off to make sure my Little Guy is in bed and get ready for that myself. We've got Church in the morning, then visits with the Grandparents. I'm making a Roast in the Crock Pot for lunch tomorrow and hope to get more accomplished here. Today, we got a great deal done and it feels great. (although, there's ALWAYS more)
We had Homemade Strombolli's that Mike made tonite and they were SO GOOD. We'll have leftovers tomorrow night, with some fresh fruit and veggies while we watch the Super Bowl. We usually don't watch Football but seem to always watch this particular game. It's fun!
Hope to go for a walk or to the park first, though after Hunter's nap. It's supposed to be beautiful weather!
God bless and enjoy your weekend!
