We have been busy since we returned from the beach. The kids had their valentine parties today so we took cupcakes and all our valentines and the boys had a blast!

This picture cracks me up! I love Jonathan's expression. This is the valentine hat he made at school. Jacob was a little grumpy so he didn't pose for pictures!

And of course yesterday we went to check on our house and things are coming along. I really need to start packing! I think I've packed about 4 boxes. Only about 1,000 to go!

Myrtle Beach

We went down to Myrtle Beach this week to de-stress a bit and we had a great time. It was too short, but of course any trip to the beach is too short for me. I would live on the beach if I could. We had a great time. It was freezing, but fun. We relaxed in a nice hotel, flew kites on the beach, did a little shopping, and spent some great quality time together, not having to worry about anything!

So I realize that all I seem to be putting up lately are pictures of our house. Really it is for my own benefit, to watch the progress. We have been pretty busy lately. We have been trying to get our house sold. We kind of waited a while before putting it on the market, so it has just been a few days. We have been trying to keep it spotless because people can stop by any time. You can imagine how easy this is with the boys! We have also been busy with ym and yw. We are getting ready for New Beginnings and boy does that seem to be taking a lot out of me. We are also trying to get Jonathan enrolled in Kindergarten. Since they changed the cutoff date, he is 4 days too young. But he is already reading! So, I think if he waits another year, he will be so bored. On the other hand maybe I shouldn't rush anything because I know my time with him will fly by and he will be gone on his mission. So, we are trying to get the school to allow him. We are just going to see. I don't want to totally push things, so whatever happens, happens. We enrolled Jacob in his same preschool for next year. He is doing great and loves it! Every time I go pick him up hes chasing the girls on the playground. I hope this isn't a glimpse into the future:) Other than that, just keeping it real, as my sister would say. This pregnancy seems to be different from the other two. I have been soooo tired, had so much nausea, and now my back has been all achy(which I've never had until the last month). But it may just be the stress of everything else going on. Anyway, heres a picture of our house. I went and walked through it yesterday. They are putting up the drywall now. I'm so excited!

We had snow the other night and it was so nice to be stuck at home for a few days! Although today we were all ready to get out. The snow turned a layer of ice, so we were slipping around having a lot of fun! Here's some pictures!

We have a roof and windows! Actually they've put up the siding now, but I haven't been over to take a picture yet.
