What DO They Do?

I was upstairs getting clothes for the kids to wear today and I came downstairs to this "discussion" Daisy and Rocky were having at the breakfast table:

Rocky: Where's Daddy?

Daisy: He's working...

Rocky: No! He's at church!

Daisy: No, he's working!

Rocky: No, he'!!

(...and so on...)

I guess even pastor's kids wonder what these men do when it's not Sunday!

p.s. no baby yet.

I am thankful that God is in control and I am not (even though sometimes I like to think I am). After having pretty steady contractions for three days with no "results", I can so easily and selfishly say, "Poor me! How can this be good?" God is saying, "This is good! I will be glorified"

Thank you to those who have been thinking of and praying for me these past few days--they truly have been good days! Please continue to pray that the Lord would give me patience and that He would be glorified in the birth of this baby!

Twiggy's appendix

One of Twiggy's close friends, Rara, just had her appendix removed so Twiggy has been talking about it a lot. Today, she came to me looking like she does in the picture below. Did she break her arm? No. Did she sprain her arm? No....

She had her appendix removed!

Pamper the Pregnant Lady, Part II

For those of you who have also been keeping up with my sister's blog, you may remember her post from last October when she was a pampered pregnant woman. Well, yesterday, I was the pampered one and was sent off by some wonderful friends to get my very own pedicure. These women are quite the troopers because they had twelve children in their charge while I was relaxing in the quiet of the salon. Here are my feet:

Besides being ugly feet, don't they look beautiful???

After my pedicure, I went shopping all by myself before heading to my midwife appointment.

I had a wonderful day and would highly recommend being 9 months pregnant for anyone who has terrific friends! Thank you tons and tons, Mommy, Molly, and Rachel! The day was so much appreciated!

Water Fight at Helms Deep

Yesterday the kids and I headed down the road to Helms Deep for fun in the sprinkler. Our air conditioning is not working right now and since the temps soared to the upper 80s, we thought we'd take advantage of water. Once again, I did not think to grab my camera until we were almost done with the water, so you are only seeing aftershots...sorry!

Can you believe there is a year-and-a-half difference in age between these two (above)?

The kids had a great time (except for some reason they were willing to get the Mommies very wet, but a little more unwilling to let the Mommies get them wet). After our water fight we hooked the hose to the slide and the kids had fun on the make-shift water slide (I have video of the water slide but am not sure how to post video...sorry...again).

Above is my little native in his loin cloth. Wouldn't he fit in well in Papua New Guinea???

One of these evenings when I have lots of time I will update you on what is going on in our lives. Between a baby coming (three weeks to go), selling our house, and getting ready for the upcoming move we've been very busy.
