Life is Good: Day 47 (Heather's Visit)

We have had a wonderful time! I have pictures. But I'm too tired to upload them tonight. Heather baked cookies all day. I strung my rug onto the loom. Leif was our gopher ALL Day (Such a good sport!!!!) The kids played and played and played! We ate yummy food and have enjoyed just being together!

Life is Good: Day 48

We have had a busy and fun couple of days. Leif and I got the house ready for company a couple of days ago. Then we all climbed in the car and drove to Manti to meet my sister and her girls for the pageant. All went well on the way. Unfortunately, Heather got VERY sick before the show. We felt so bad for her. Luckily we all survived and Heather was able to rest in the car. The kids did fantastic during that late and kind of long performance. I was blessed with extra strength too. It was a good experience for the most part.

Today we drove a lot and shopped for groceries. We also stopped at Leif's brothers house to walk around. I won't be able to make any more long drives before the baby. My body is done with that! It was such a beautiful drive though. So green!!

It was nice to get home this afternoon and spend time just settling in and letting the kids play. We're all going to have a great time!! Life is Good!

Life is Good: Day 50

I have much to be thankful for and to look forward to tonight. The Ambian worked wonders for me! Caleb slept in too.:) So I felt better today. Still a lot of contractions. But... I'll slow down soon.;) Have you ever taken all of your laundry to the laundromat so you can get it ALL done in a couple of hours? That's what we did today. Great Idea!! Leif helped so much today. It's so nice to have someone to help when I can barely get around. I DID do the dishes today though. Very proud of myself. However, It's hard to reach the sink these days. So we're going to have to come up with a better routine and wash the dishes after the meal.

So we got everything pretty much ready for my sister and her girls to come for their visit. I am Almost done with my homework. And tomorrow we head out for Manti for the pageant. Then I'll have my sister here for a while and I'm Very Excited!!

Life is Good: Day 51

Today was a day at the doctors. So I'm grateful for our doctor today! Caleb has strep throat, and is now on medicine. I've had steady contractions for a few days. So I finally went in and was monitored for a while. They pumped me with saline and gave me an ambian to sleep really well tonight. I'm looking forward to it!!

My boys helped Leif scrub our bathroom today too. What more could I ask for!!;)

Life is Good: Day 52

I am so grateful to say that Leif is home today, tomorrow, and ... He was supposed to have Jury Duty this week. We prayed that some how he would be able to pass this time and not have to drive the 4 hours and stay for the few days. Well, our prayers were answered in a very unusual way!! There is a fire blazing in Flagstaff and the highway that Leif would need to take is closed. WOW! I really didn't pray for a wild fire!;) But oh I am grateful Leif is home.

Life is Good: Day 53

Being Father's Day, I will take a minute to share my love for my father and my husband. My Dad has always been good to me. I know that he doesn't feel like he has been the best dad. But he shouldn't feel that way!! I have many wonderful memories of my dad growing up and on into life these days. I think the earliest memory I have is of him singing to my sister and I as we were falling asleep. My dad loves us, I have never wondered about that. What more can I say? Actually a lot, but I will leave it at that for now. I Love you Dad!

My husband is my boys' best friend. Oh how happy we are when Papa is home! You only have to read a tiny bit of my blog to catch a glimpse of the wonderful father Leif is. We are truly blessed! I Love you Leif!

Today we went to Leif's brothers house for a BBQ. It was wonderful! Leif took a couple of pictures this time so you can get an idea of why I like it so much there. These are of the family gathering grass feed for the pigs. We're surrounded by so much green. And it's so quiet and peaceful. Their neighbor has a row of Poppies in their yard that were beautiful!
