Life has gotten in the way of blogging.

Seems like things around these parts have just been non-stop for the past few weeks! We've finally finished our work on our kitchen (though I haven't remembered to take a photo....that'll be added soon)

A couple of monumental things....

My sweet Amanda turned 10 last weekend!!

I think I mentioned before that we had decided to throw a big birthday bash once a year instead of giving each of the kids an individual party with friends. We hosted the first on on Amanda's birthday and it was SOOO much fun! There were over 70 people that came throughout the afternoon/evening.

One of the things we did for the party was roast a hog, something my husband has wanted to do for a LONG time. :)

Yummy!! (we're still eating the leftovers)

Here's Jessica taking a swing at the pinata~

And the birthday girl with her friend Bailey.

Another monumental thing is that baby girlie turned one! I need to sit her down and do a photo shoot now that things have slowed down a bit.

We've also transitioned back into school. The first week or so was hard, but things are starting to smooth out and do I dare say that today was actually enjoyable. Attitudes were gone and my willing happy students were back! :)

Things are going well pregnancy wise, I'm feeling good most of the time. When I don't feel well it's usually because I try to take on to many things and just plain wear myself out! :P I had my 24 week check-up yesterday and I'm measuring right on track and his heartbeat was a strong 150!

I think that's about all for now~

I'm glad to see your update! I always wonder what's going on in the Sims family!!

Wow, I can't believe Amanda is already 10. It's really true that time absolutely flies, isn't it??

I'd better go, I have limited myself to only 15 minutes on the computer and then I really must go and shower because I'm going to try to beg my husband to take me out for an enormous omelette!!

Take care, blog those pictures of your kitchen soon!!!

I'm glad you're going well. The party idea sounds great -lots of great fun!
Thanks for your lovely comment on my blog regarding Dave's upcoming op - I am so excited, but don't think I'll actually put it on the blog as a lot of people from our country town here read it as well as Dave's boss & frankly it's none of their business!
Have a nice week
