And then there were six!!!

Thats right for all of you well wishers keeping my hopes up for that coveted girl I'm still lost in the sea of testosterone. That's right we are having another boy! This is my fifth boy and our sixth boy togeather. Help Me!! All of you that could use a break now and then fixing hair and playing tea party send your girls my way. I need the reminder. Maybe I will just buy myself some princess dressups and make my boys rescue me from now on. I deserve it!

Here is the party. We had a lot of fun! Sis and fam and other Sis came. Boy #1 got an Ipod. The Monday after I went to his house to help him ask a girl to Homecoming. We got her favorite color roses (pink and orange not easy to find) and put little papers in them asking her to the dance. It was so much fun! It was also his idea which I thought was awesome. He really didn't want me to document it (as you can see by his face) but I did anyway. What kind of mom or stepmom would I be if I didn't embarass him every once and awhile.
While he was here we went to see Grandma who is doing so much better. She got to go home yesterday so she is glad to be out of hospitals. She still has a long road to recovery but at least she gets to do it at home.

I finally got a picture with all the boys. Aren't they cute! We rented our house we have to be out on the first of Nov. I'm so excited to move again! I actually am. We haven't done it for awhile and I was wondering what I should call my blog if we ever stopped moving. Tell me if you have any good ideas.

Birthday Boy!

Yeah to boy #1! He is finally 16. He is truly an independant teenager. I'm sure he would much rather be 18 graduated and on his own but hey only 2 more years( well 2 and 1/2. He has to wait till he graduates). His real b-day was on Sat. We will be celebrating this weekend when he comes over. It should be Lots of fun!
Here's an update on Shirley. The clot in her leg is 75% dissapated. The one in her lung is still there. The internal bleeding in her leg seems to have slowed and her blood count is going up which is good. She may be able to go home today but I haven't talked to anyone over there today to check. We all appreciate all the prayers from everyone. I know she is getting better because of them. Thank you!

Millions of Peaches...

Here are step by step instructions on how to can peaches...

First contain all the children in a safe and orderly manner.

Next figure out how to blanche peaches properly before you start.

Then magically you will end up with finished jars of peaches on your counter.

How easy is that?
OK so it's not that easy but it was so fun!! We had to stop early so I could jet and visit my mom in law. She fainted today and needed a pick me up. I think it helped her to see her grandbabies. She hadn't seen them for a couple of weeks and missed them. She is doing better. They found some internal bleeding in her leg and drained it. I hope that will help. We want her well so she can go home and rest. It's so hard to be in the hospital. We appreciate all your prayers for her and I know she appreciates them too! Thanks.

It's that time again!

It's almost Haloween!! You know what that means...Time to Move!!
So I put an add on craigslist last night to rent/sell our house and I've already had someone look at it today. Is that crazy or what?? Boy #2 stayed home again today but hasn't thrown up at all. Yippee!! He is going to school tomarrow. I have had some questions regarding this pregnancy so here's the scoop. I am due Feb. 3rd and I already don't fit in anything. I accidentally gave all my maternity clothes to Goodwill. That included all my sister's clothes as well because we all pool them togeather. So, if you have any donations you can contact me and I will tell you where to drop them off ;) Just kidding!!Since I never go into labor I am expecting to be induced at the end of January but since we are moving I may not get such an understanding obgyn. I better look far and wide for someone good. I hear they have pretty good doctors where we are going. If you want to know where that is ask my sister.

My Crazy Life!!

So to catch you all up on what is new I just start where I left off. Our cute puppy Freckles was hit by a car so now we have Spot who as you could probably guess is a boy! Cleo and I are outnumbered still. We have a baby on the way and we don't know if it's a boy or girl until the 17th. We are moving again this time for real, and my mother in-law is in the hospital with a blood clot in her lung. Please pray for her.

The picture above was the day of the flood. There was a crazy rain storm that flooded our property. The kids had a ball in the mud but boy #3 lost his shoe in a sink hole. We never found it.That was so much Fun!!Next was the local carnival. The boys went on a crazy ride. Boy #2 got a little scared and screamed for them to stop the ride. They did.
Next was the big family campout. We loved all the snakes. The rest was pretty fun too.
Yeah more camping!!!We got to go on an awesome Steam train ride. Then we visited the dredge that you saw in an earlier blog.This was inside.
That was one crazy catch-up. I will try harder to blog more often. I know I need the outlet. I hope you are all well and happy. Try to keep up on your blogs. It's easier than trying to catch up.
