SO much has happened since the last time we spoke. We had a baby, I went back to work, we had a girl live with us to take care of HB, I quit work and now I am a stay at home mommy who lives on the road. And last but not least, I am expecting baby number 2 in January!!

This is our little family for HB’s 1st birthday party in Michigan. It was a month early, but he has no clue. LOL. This picture is also the day after we found out we were pregnant again. I am a little disappointed because we got pregnant before I got down to my before baby, baby weight ,but make no mistake we are SUPER excited to expand our family. God has perfect timing and could not care less about the scale.

Can we talk about the scale for a second? So I still nurse HB, that’s right. He has been BFed for almost a year now. It seems that everyone who did not BF is more skinny than ever. They are like small, super small. Here I am BFing for an entire year and am bigger than I have ever been in my life. I am more active than I ever was while working (taking care of just one kid is a lot of work), I am not just sitting at home eating. We are actually eating healthier than we have in the past, but yet again here I am … chubby. It is so frustrating. I am not sure what is going on here but I can tell you I am not thrilled about it. I am still working out and I hope to not gain as much weight during this pregnancy. End of rant.

Hope you are all doing well!

Hello everyone!  

As you can see I have been absent from posting for a while.  While my pregnancy was easy, I was always tired.  

I went into labor on May 27 at around 6:30am, we went to the hospital at 6pm.  On our way to the hospital we had to go grab a car seat from Target really quick (our Uppababy car seat was still being made… UGH) and after Target grab a bite to eat too.  The contractions just started being 5 minutes apart for one minute for one hour. So we knew we had a bit of time on our hands.. since I was doing natural labor we did not feel the need to run into the hospital by any means.

 On the way into Target my water broke. HAHA! Of course that would happen to me, but I ran to the bathroom and Trent literally ran to go get a car seat. So because my water broke we decided not to eat… BIG MISTAKE.. I was told I could not need until the baby was born which would end up being a full 22 hours before I would eat again. UGH!!

I went 15 hours of natural labor in the hospital… I then decided I was too tired to continue without some sort if medical intervention.  They gave me a drug to help me sleep for 45 minutes… wouldn’t you know it shift change occurred so every single nurse said goobye to me and every single nurse said hello.  At the end of the 45 minutes I had not slept and then my body decided it was time to get sick. FUN TIMES.  After another hour of those good times, I broke down and told Trent I was throwing in the towel.  After 17 hours of labor I was only 3cm (Hunter was hanging out in my hip not in the front).  The Dr came in and gave me the epidural and pitocin and 4 hours later Hunter Baby was born!

Image

I got to hold Hunter for almost an hour before they needed to take him and give him a bath.  Daddy (Trent) got to give him his first bath.  It was super precious.  Hunter was not into eating right away but I sure was, so Trent and I got some PIZZA!!!  We all got some well needed sleep and then we finally got to go home!

Image

That is where I will leave it right now. I have some stuff I need to do before Trent gets home.

Hope you enjoy the little story and the pics 🙂  Missed you all!!

So apparently our government now sees being German, Christian, and homeschooling a threat. Such a threat that a German family who LEGALLY sought amnesty here now faces deportation due to the fact that in Germany homeschooling is illegal (granted by one man named Hitler… let that sink in). Please read this article. http://www.inquisitr.com/567261/obama-administration-trying-to-deport-christian-family/

Copy and paste it since I have no clue how to link it… sorry guys 😦

Oh my gosh, so while at home we were some busy bees!   We got there the day before July 4th.  We got up had our coffee on the porch in the back yard and the family started to arrive. 

Image

In case you were wondering. Grandma made it!  It was a bit hot out for her, so she did not hang outside long, but she still showed up and we had some laughs.  We tried to play a game, but no one was good at it… so we stopped and all went swimming instead.

Later in the day Trent said he wanted a fire for the smell.  Now I will tell you right now that it was already 97 degrees out. Image

Here is a pic of him creating that fire.  Notice no one is sitting under the canopy because the heat from the fire got a little out of control.  After dark dad and Trent lit off some wonderful fireworks and we had a good time just chillen in the backyard.  The next day, the power went out in the whole neighborhood.  It happened at 4:30am and this was the day that mom and I had to do some cooking for their party the next day.  I prayed that God just let us have power until the party was over.  We had power and no one else in the neighborhood did!  God does do miracles people!  It was simply amazing. 

So the next day we go to my cousins house for the party. Image

Here is a pic of everyone in my family waiting for people to show up.  We sat in the shade under the tree because believe it or not, it was cooler there than in the tent. Hahaha!  After a while I got bored and started a game of horse with Trent and a couple friends. 

Image

We got creative and started taking pics of us “dunking” .  Needless to say the lowered the hoop for me. Just look at that great form!!

Next day the power went out, for a full 24 hours. So we took to Bob Evans for some food. 

Image

Mom and Dad waitin for the food to come. YUMMM. Pancakes from Bob’s are delish! MMm MM MM.  Later in the day we visited my other grandma and went to my favorite place Ruggero’s. I go there for a chicken salad and the bread.  Image

Yumm that bread is delish!  After we ate, we went back to grandma’s. I finished my laundry and we went to Frankenmuth to go to a music fest that they have their every Sunday night at 7:00pm.  

Image

On the way there, mom and I took a little nap.  I am laying on a pillow and my mom has perfected sleeping in the sitting position. 

Image

We are now awake and enjoying a little Frankie Valley and the four seasons.  It was actually horrible. But we still had a good time.  Because there was no reason so go home and stare at one another in the dark, we decided to grab a beer and the Frankenmuth Brewery. 

Image

Dad is telling a story and Mom is laughing hysterically.  Kind of how the whole trip was.  Just a good time all around. 

We have reached our final day and I spent it in the pool, after I helped my mom clean out her closet and dad helped dad disassemble the furniture.  Here our the last pics of me at my home. 

Image

Just look at our faces.. filled with joy and love. HAHAHA. SO funny. 

ImageHere is the real pic. Much better. 

Image

Just hanging around……

ImageThe last pic of me with my mom and dad at the house I grew up in since I was 10 😦  It is just a house but it has helped make me…… (look to the next pic)

ImageHOW FUNNY RIGHT!!!!

That is the trip though.  Nothing to exciting but as you can see, a lot of memories were made once more. Now on to the Florida house… my parents move July 25th!!!

So, oh my goodness. Let’s just jump right into updates shall we? 

First off some people have asked when my parents are moving.  They will be moving July 25.. so in a couple weeks!

This past Monday, Trent and I were talking and we decided to extend our stay here in our apartment.  Our lease is/was coming up on July 14 and this job is lasting at least until the second week in August.  So we went ahead and made the phone calls and we got the apartment until August 11!! YAY… Well yesterday Trent gets a call and there is a job in Delaware starting up between July 15-20 and Trent and I are both on that job. Ummmm.. Great news but horrible news.  If we break our lease, we are on the line for $1,000.  I do not know about you, but that is a good chunk of money. YIKES!  We have not actually signed anything yet though, so that may be our only saving grace.  However, I mean our apartment complex went out of their way to make sure we could stay longer and not we are kind of screwing them over by saying.. oh NM. and really only giving them a 2 week notice (we do have it in writing that we are leaving on July 14 though with no new writing that we are leaving on the August 11).  Does this make any sense? So technically, there was only a verbal agreement.. but to me that is still an agreement.  SO we will just see how that shakes down because I have never been on a job when it starts exactly on time. 

So if we are moving next On July 14, that means I have one week to pack up the house.  Trent and I are leaving on a plane this Tuesday (July 3) to go to my parents house and will not be back home until Monday (July9) night.  Soooo there is going to be a lot going on. A lot needs to be figured out, but I am not worried.  My Father in Heaven will take care of the timeline.  I just have to take care of the packing! Hahaha

Have a great Saturday everyone!!!

SOLD


So there is so much to tell you!  BUT here is the best of it.

So my parents had their first open house the weekend after Memorial Day.. so that would be June 3.  They only had a few people even show up, so they decided to go ahead and call in the professionals.  Well they ended up selling their house on June 13.  Literally 10 days after they put it on the market, which is almost unheard of.  They actually had two offers coming in and had themselves a little bidding war!  What a wonderful thing.  In the same week as the house sold, they also sold their car and had a Garage sale that was a HUGE success.  That was only the stuff they actually had in the garage! HAHA.

My mom is done with work at GM now.  She retired the same week they sold the house. She had a wonderful retirment party and people really went above and beyond for her. So that is awesome.  My sister is going to my parents house tomorrow (from FL) .  Well she is in MI right now, but she is staying with a girlfriend for a day or two and then going to my mom and dad’s house.  So things are just going super swimmingly.

I mean really, if you do not believe in the power of prayer, you may want to start.  There is no way that all this would have happened without an AWESOME and LIVING Christ.

So that is what is going on right now 🙂 

 

P.S.  My ear is all better.  Not really sure what the heck went on, but it got better on its own. ?
