Things have been busy around here. Keeping up with three kids and a dog is def. a job~one that I enjoy!! The kids have been doing GREAT. We went to Odon for Thanksgiving and spent it with both sides of the family. We split the day in half~ first half my mom's, second half Jesse's parents. We got back home around 830 ish, and we were all EXHAUSTED!!
Jesse hung up our outside Christmas lights over the weekend~ the kids were excited!! Oh and on Friday night we took the kids for some hot chocolate and drove through Martinsville Park to see all the Christmas Lights. They loved it!!
Over the weekend the kids enjoyed playing outside with some of the neighbor kids. We also watched several movie together like "Are we there yet" and "Are we done yet" ~lots of laughs:)

And now it is Monday.......... I am not sure why I dread Mondays most of the time. I think it is just that I now I have so much to get done through the week and well Monday starts it so.... Jesse goes on call this week so it will be an interesting week. Hope you are all doing great and have a nice week.

Over the weekend...

Last weekend~ Jesse, Bodie, April (sil) and I went shopping in Edinburgh at the Outlet Malls. We had lots of fun laughing, and shopping all those sales:) It was def. a trip though with a newborn. I had to stop lots to feed and change diapers but he did really good!! I was glad that I had two awesome helpers though!! Anyways it did feel good to get out of the house and shop!!
The kids had fun at Mamaw and Papaw's. They rode the pony (Calli) and did all sorts of fun stuff.

Royal Treatment

Austin and Hailee are loving Bodie so much! They are great big brother and sister to him, and have helped me out alot. Things have been going good around our house. Here are my three kiddo's.
Bodie enjoys sitting in the highchair and watching the kids/me. Of course it is laid back, but he still loves it! Here is the big boy in his highchair!
Austin is growing up so much. I can't believe next month he will turn 10. Wow!

Yesterday Hailee and I had hair appt. I was so glad to get my hair cut, but even more excited was Miss Hailee Brooke. She loves going in to the beauty shop and always recieves the ROYAL TREATMENT!! Here are a few pics of our princess getting her hair done:)

She loves when Jessica washes her hair:)

All finished and cute as can be!!

Cookie Time

Hailee is a BIG helper, and loves to help do all kinds of things. She loves to help clean, give Bodie baths, fold clothes, and bake!! The other night she helped me bake some YUMMY cookies, and she made sure she was the first to taste them too:)

Catching Up

Over the weekend the kids went to Mamaw and Papaw (Hillbilly's) Swartzentruber's. They had a blast from the stories told, but were so wore out!! Lots of playing, laughing, and quality time with gparents and cousins!!
Jesse, Bodie, and I didn't do much while they were gone. I don't think we even really left the house. It was def. quiet around here and I could tell Bodie missed them. He always wants to know where they are and looks around for them lots!

On Monday, we had homeschool group. We celebrated a few birthdays, and did some crafts. The kids had fun playing with other kids. Other than that we haven't done to much. Well other than the everyday things... This coming weekend Jesse, April (sil) and I are heading to edinburgh to do some Christmas shopping!! I am looking forward to the great deals and using my COUPONS!! Bill and Cindy are going to watch the kids on Saturday while we go. This is a tradition!! We do this every year usually the weekend before Thanksgiving~ due to Kevin(brother in law) being gone to deer camp. We always have fun and have lots of laughs:)
Hope you all have a great week!

6 week

Today I had my 6 week check up with Dr. Reynolds. I can't believe it has been 6 weeks since having Bodie. Anyways everything looked great! My c section scar is healing nicely, yay!! So now I am back to doing whatever I want. First on my list is EXERCISING!! I am ready to get this extra baby weight off, just wish it was that easy.

Cindy came up today to pick up Austin and Hailee for a weekend with Mamaw and Papaw. They were both looking forward to it. They always have fun there! So right now it is just Jesse, me and Bodie at the house and let me tell ya it is way to quiet. When the kids are gone I sure do miss them:)

Happy Birthday

Just want to wish Jesse's grandpa Eaton a very Happy Birthday! Hope you have a great day filled with many great things. We love you very much!!

I have noticed the last few days that when Hailee is in trouble and we get on to her she replies, " I didn't do it, MeMee did it. I am serious she did." When I ask her about MeMee, she tells me that only she can see MeMee, no one else can. With this being said, Hailee has an imaginary friend. I told Hailee that MeMee isn't going to be allowed to stay here because she does all the bad things that gets Miss Hailee in trouble.

I can't remember if Austin had an imaginary friend or not, I am sure he might of at one point. The things that Hailee can come up with:)

Beautiful Weekend

This weekend the weather has been beautiful!! Jesse has been on call this weekend but he still found time to enjoy the outdoors!! He mowed the yard and got all the leaves up and even trimmed up the landscaping... It really needed it!! He is the best, let me tell ya :) On Saturday my mom came up for a visit and to spend the night. The kids enjoyed having Mamaw Wise here, she always plays Wii with them:) They had a blast. We just hung out and took a little trip to WalMart. On Sunday we got up and she headed home. My little sister went to Passion for Purity and so mom headed there for a ceremony. The kids and I went outside to enjoy the weather and to help Jesse get some things done. Here are a few pics I got of the kids.

Also I just wanted to share these pictures. Lindsey (my sister) and her family. They have a little one on the way due in May.

My sister Crystal and her family.
Hope you are all having a great weekend and you found time to enjoy the weather!

Happy Birthday April

Wanting to wish April a very Happy Birthday weekend. Hope you have a GREAT one!! April is Jesse's sister, so my sis in law. To be honest, I really think of her as my sister!! She is such a wonderful person, and has always been there for me when I need her. Love ya April!!

We all send our hugs and kisses your way on your special day! Love Jesse, Sarah, Austin, Hailee and Bodie!! :)

Learning Early

My kids always are saying things to make us laugh, and often we wonder where they get some of the things they are saying from. I mean sometimes they are just to cute and so funny.

I want to share a few of Hailee's funny stories. Hailee was sitting at the computer desk typing the buttons, when I asked her what she thought she was doing. She replies, " Mom~ I am texting Mamaw!" Another time she is banging on the keyboard and I said, "Hailee get off that computer." She says, "but mom I am checking my FACEBOOK...." I about died... I hope that isn't the only thing that she is learning from me.

Kids are just too cute!!

This week was the final week of soccer for us til Spring. Austin's team lost on Monday so we are done.... Austin had a great season with many goals, and lots of new friends!! Hailee also did a fabulous job this season. :) They both got trophies and are satisfied!!

Crazy is the word to describe things right now.... I have been schooling the kids everyday, keeping the house going and clean, nursing and making sure Bodie is satisfied, and so much more. By the time Jesse gets home, I am ready to sit down. He is super about helping when he gets home, but by the end of the day we both feel a bit CRAZY!! We wouldn't trade it though.

On Monday the kids and I went with our homeschool group to tour the new Firestation in Martinsville. I have to say it is really BIG and nice:) The kids learned alot about fire safety and even got to crawl through the smoke house. My kids have talked about it everyday and have practiced crawling through our house staying along the edges like they would do if it was the real deal. I am glad that they got this education!!
Other than this not to much has happened here.
