The kids found this caterpillar out in the yard and spent about an hour watching it crawl and playing with it. I'm sure the caterpillar was exausted by the time they let it go! I had my OB checkup today and my Dr's guessing I'll go 1-2 weeks early. Yeah!

I also did a research study today for Crest ProHealth products. I had to "shop" with my shopping cart thru a pretend store and give my opinion on Crest displays and product labels for their new mouthwash. Hey, I'll get paid to shop any day!! :)

New Camera! Yeah!!!

We got a new camera yesterday and I've had a lot of fun playing with it. Here are some of my shots so far. I'm still learning how to use it, so far I love it!!....The kids just called me outside to see this rainbow over our house. A big thunderstorm just rolled thru and then a burst of sunshine and a rainbow. A wonderful reminder that God keeps his promises!!!

Hotdog Roast

Rob & Deanna Kennedy invited us over to fish & roast hotdogs Saturday evening. We had a great time! It was a beautiful evening and the guys and kids caught lots of fish. Deanna and I had fun just hanging out and the kids loved being outside. Thanks Rob & Deanna for a great time! Rob, sorry I didn't get a picture of you to blog, although you kept asking for one! Maybe next time :)
Me, Ella, & Baby

Nice Fish, Abby!

Ella loves to roast (not eat) marshmallows!

I found a couple pictures of Deanna's wedding and wanted to share them. There is a picture of Mark & Deanna and a picture of "the girls" (Janella, Stephanie, Deanna, and I). We have had so much fun spending time together. We usually get together once a month (at least) and yesterday we met for lunch kind of on the spur of the moment. It was great to see everyone since it had been a whole 8 days and we were seeing each other so often preparing for Deanna's wedding!! Deanna was still glowing. I will miss her terribly when she moves to Ireland in a couple months so we'll try to get together as often as we can. I am so thankful for the beautiful gift of friendship that God has given us. Truly friends are one of life's greatest treasures.

Try again!

OK I re-did my blog so hopefully the "comments" will work this time. Carl & I celebrated our 11th anniversary this week. We went out to dinner and then to Graeter's YUM!! Only 8 weeks left until my due date (June 10th) but I've been a week early with my other 3 so I'll just say 7 weeks left :) I am trying to get Caleb finished up with Kindergarten. We're aiming to be done May 11. I think I am just as excited as he is to be finishing up!

Ready, Set.... Blog

Here are a few recent pictures. Last week was very busy with Caleb's 7th Birthday, Deanna's wedding and Easter. It was a fun week. Caleb loves being 7 and Deanna's wedding was absolutely beautiful!
