Here's a great idea:

If you a pregnant and emotional....watch a tear-jerking-chic-flick! Okay, maybe not a great idea. It was a good movie though.

Here's some make up blogging to make up for what I haven't blogged. We will be moving in a week. To a small apartment. We are hoping to have a down payment for our very own house in six months. In good news, this apartment complex that we are moving to has a swimming pool and a play ground. In bad news, well, it's an apartment. small apartment. Did I mention I am so tired of small apartments. The last 8 months have been a nice break. It is for the greater good though.

Here's a picture of our meatloaf. I found the idea to use cookie cutters to shape meatloaf. D thought it was great. Both kids ate meatloaf for possibly the first time ever without fighting about it. D called them cookies. Seriously, if someone gave me a cookie that tasted like meatloaf I would not be excited.
Before cooking:

After cooking: (cook's notes -- do not over cook...)

I love my kids but they make me crazy. Perhaps I have mentioned this before?

D is only 50 quarters away from his Wall-E truck. He's got a chart on the wall where he can earn quarters for doing jobs. Right now he is working towards a Wall-E truck to go with his Wall-E and EVE toys. It is a $60 toy. Roy took pity on the poor kid and decided that if D earned $20 we'd pay the rest. This seemed like a good idea so he could get the toy before he was 12. D's actually earning more like $26 and we're teaching him about tithing along the way. Ever 10th quarter goes in his tithing bank. He's such a good kid.

K isn't earning quarters. It's too advanced for this one year old. Baby #3 is doing fine by all accounts. She's an active little thing. Usually that's okay and reassuring. Sometimes its down right inconsiderate. It's like she doesn't even think about the fact that she's inside my body! Oh well.

Well, time for me to go find something else to do instead of packing/planning of the move.

for some reason I thought you were already in a house. Guess not.

That truck thing is great. Gabe has been earning some great things too. Like Power ranger crap. I hate power rangers.

Good luck with the move. You KNOW I am a HUGE fan of moving.
