An early Valentine

Grandma and Papa sent a box of fun for the kids. They are each enjoying their toys and the books have been a hit at nap time and bed time. Thanks Grandma and Papa.

Master Bathroom
Garage door from the dining room
Living room looking from the kitchen, this room is two story and you can see a catwalk from the stairs to all the bedrooms.
Hallway and front door looking from the living room
Dining room with new table. We still need more chairs, they are on order.

Front of the house.
So by popular demand I am posting some pictures of the house(in no particular order). I'm not at all ready to do this, but I guess I will never be ready. We bought this 1400 sq. foot home with 3 bedrooms, 2 1/2 baths, and 2 car garage. We bought the home right before the holiday and then we left town three days after moving in.

I still have a long list of things to do to finish the house, but they will have to wait till I have some time. I need to find frames so we can hang photos up the stairs, plus I still need to sew the drapes in the Master bedroom. I need to get fabric for the kids shower curtain, and hand something on the wall. I need to paint the mirror for the girls room and finish their quilts. I also need to hang up Myles airplanes and cloud sconce. I just don't know if all his furniture is staying in the same location as we are still waiting to relocate a dresser to his room. When we get our dresser he will get our old one. Then when I get it all in the room I will hang things on the wall. Eight weeks is seeming like a long time. I just can't wait till we get that dresser and the chair. All in time I guess.

So what do you think?

So the girls are 8 1/2 months old now and they are just starting to sit up regularly. They still like to lay back, and Lydia just likes to roll all over the place. Audrey is content to just roll once onto her belly and stay where you placed her. They are both really sweet and happy girls. They don't cry that much, and they are content with a few toys for a long time. They are really great babies, thank heavens. I don't know how I would do it if they were really "needy" babies.

Anyway, the girls are hitting all their mile stones, just a little slow. I figure it's mostly my fault. I just don't have the time like I did when Myles was a baby. If I had hours to sit on the floor and help them learn to sit up, or crawl, or walk then maybe they would be on schedule, but I don't. Oh well, they'll get it eventually. Heck, I haven't even finished unpacking all the way yet. I can't figure out why it's taking sooooooo longgggggg. It's crazy around here. Add to that, I'm sick and tiered of being fat so I've started exercising. Well guess what? That takes a lot of time. I walk for an hour, but there is the time getting everyone ready to go and then the time when we get home to get everyone out of the stroller and into the house and fed again! Not to mention the time it takes me to get into the shower and dressed and ready for the day. The price mommy's pay for trying to look good. We have a great trail near our home and we try and walk/run there three to four times a week. Some weeks are better than others, but we do our best. I recently started running half of it. Can I just say it's really hard running with three kids in front of you to push. I have a GREAT stroller, but it's still tough. I better start seeing some pounds melt away or I'm going to have a melt down.
