I see the moon...
The most wasted of all days, is one without laughter!
It's been busy lately! Finishing getting the house ready to sell... tee-ball practices... getting ready for our Disney trip next week... and a whole lot of other little things! I've been slacking on blogging!
Tres and Bryant got pulled through the pool by this Sea-Doo thing my parents bought, it is really cool.
We need some prayer! We are looking at putting our house on the market as soon as next weekend. We need prayer that it sells quickly and for what we are would like to get out of it.
here is a retry of the t-ball video

Okay, so I'm having to take plenty of breaks from painting. This little girl has moved up a story and is putting more pressure on my lungs than my bladder these days, so I am getting out of breath easily! Anyway, I had some time to think while painting, and I remembered something that I wanted to share!
We've had some busy days this week so far. My one goal has been to paint the front bath, and I am doing that today... I actually got one wall done without a request for drink, food, or the need for a referree! Wow!
Here are the boys at their first T-Ball Practice

My sister, Tonnie, came over this morning and helped me paint my bedroom today! Thank you so much, Ton-Ton! You are THE BEST sister in the world! My mom came and got the boys so that they wouldn't get in the way, or breathe in paint fumes all day. It was nice to have adult conversation all morning! So refreshing!
I went to the doctor today. Baby girl and I are doing good. She is growing just fine. I however, have lost 5 pounds. The doctor told me that if I wasn't measuring good, I would be in trouble. More than likely, it's just all the packing and stuff that is keeping me from gaining weight... cause it sure isn't my diet! :) Her heartbeat was good today at 150. My blood pressure was great, which was a relief to me, because I've had several weird dizzy spells lately. He said that could be caused by bending over a lot, or congestions. He didn't think it was anything pregnancy related, so that's good! I scheduled my glucose screening... so the next visit will be longer. Yuck! But just a week after that, we have our 4-D ultrasound scheduled, so that will be fun!
I took the boys with me to clean the shop, as I often do. They normally occupy themselves with coloring, or bring toys to play with. This time, they snuck all of the highlighters out of the main office and apparently had a very quiet highlighter war! When I was getting them ready to go, I found all the highlighters before I saw Bryant's face! Tres had small marks on his arms and hands only... but Bryant had it in his ears, on his scalp, in the corner of one eye... I mean, you name it, it was highlighted!
Every time we go to Disney World as a family, my husband Hank designs a t-Shirt for everyone that is going. In three weeks we are going for Star Wars Weekend. Hank has decided to put everyone face on a Star Wars Galactic Hero's body. Some of them have turned out to be very funny (Bryant's). I though I would show you some of the pictures so everyone could get a good chuckle!!!!!!!!!
Hank and the boys decided to make Saturday my Mother's Day, because Hank had to go into work on Sunday. So I got to sleep in a little.
We had a t-ball meeting for the boys yesterday late afternoon, so the boys and I went and hung out at the mall for a couple of hours. While we were there, we went and got a cookie. Bryant got an iced Winnie the Pooh cookie. Tres got an iced cookie with a blue flower (who the heck knows why). As they tend to do, about half-way through Tres leans over and asks:
Bryant did great at the dentist. He was a lot more cautious and needed a lot of reassurance. I held his hand, the oral hygenist held his hand, and he wanted Tres to hold his foot. By the end, as you can see, he was perfectly comfortable.
We took Tres in for his first dentist visit when he turned four. Our pediatrician told us to wait until he turned three, but when we mentioned it then, he went balistic! So, we waited until he could reason a bit more. In my opinion, that was a mistake. We got to his first dental appointment, and there were babies only 18 months old in there! I was shocked. Anyway, it turns out that Tres had a few cavities. Not that I'm trying to justify it, but we also learned that our city has zero fluoride in the water, and that is what he's been raised on. Anyway, I took him in for his cleaning initially and he did great. So, the next one, I knew would be a doosey! They told me that they would put him on Nitrous Oxide to relax him and distract him from when he got his shot. I think I was more apprehensive than he was. I let him pack a little toy bag with his silky. I forgot the camera the first time, so I didn't get any pictures. But I will always have this image of him in my head with the mask on, one of those dental paper towel neck things on and his silky clutched in his hand. He did great!!! The nurse and the dentist said they were impressed! So we went back for the second one today, and since he did so well the last time, I was less frazzled! I love the dentist we take them to. They get to lay back and watch TV's set up in the ceiling.
So this past weekend, was more of the same! The boys went and spent the night with my parents on Friday night so that Hank and I could tackle their room. We worked pretty hard on it until 1 am, and were about 98% complete. We got up the next morning and finished it. Then we took a load over to our storage unit, came back and tackled the never-ending attic again! :) Then Hank mowed the lawn while I picked up the back-yard.
Tres loves Kingdom Kid's at Church. This past Sunday morning our regular Children's Pastors were out of town, and the Missionette's leader filled in. After church, all the kids were running around with sock puppets on that they had made. We got into the car and Tres and I had a fun conversation:
