A long week

A long week down... and now a nice little break to look forward to. I got home from work a little after 8:30 Saturday night. Thursday night, I was at work 'til 9. It was such a long week, and it just seemed to drag on. Usually when you are working on one project, time seems to fly by, but I have been working on multiple projects, and multiple other issues arose; I'm so drained.

Needless to say, we started watching Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian at 9 last night, which is over 2 hours long, so it was pretty late when I finally made it to bed. We woke up early to go to church, but saw that it was snowing. I checked my email and found out that my Greek Class had been canceled. We decided not to go to church, and I decided I would not go back to sleep... and hopefully I'll go to bed earlier tonight. We figured it wasn't a great idea to get on the roads, but we decided to let the girls go outside for a little bit and enjoy the snow. Of course we had to take a picture of them in the snow.

I thought that Jodi had made both of the hats for the girls... but she only made the one for Grace... I like that one better anyway. Aren't they adorable? The girls... although the hats are too.

So, I'm still tired. School has been canceled for Grace, at least for tomorrow, and I get the next 3 days off. I'm sure I'll have plenty of time to recuperate.

Good News!

Jodi finally got her results back for her glucose test, and I guess the hospital must go by the 'no news is good news' policy, where they don't give you your results unless they're bad. I'm just so used to the military hospital where they call you up the next day or within a few hours and give you results. Granted the military doctors were probably not as good, but we had a share of good ones, especially the guy who delivered Faith... he was pretty awesome.

If you haven't figured it out, Jodi doesn't have Gestational Diabetes. This is good news, for Jodi and for the baby. Jodi had it with Faith, and was borderline with Grace, so we were worried that she may have it with Hope. Luckily this is not the case, not only because Jodi won't have to worry about her blood sugar levels and avoid all the sweet junk food, but there are different complications that it can bring about to the baby as well. It's just great not having to deal with all that.

Thanks for the thoughts and prayers.

how bout some more pics of the kids

Dad and Faith playing Little Big Planet (she loves that game) and Jodi bought the shirt for me, the words written on that shirt do not reflect my views and in no way shall I be held liable for your emotional state after you've read the shirt... clicking on the picture makes it larger.

It's already December

Man, time is flying by. In a few short months we'll be welcoming another life into this world. Jodi is already talking about diapers and baby supplies while the baby's room is coming together; it's exciting and scary at the same time. I'm going to have 3 little girls.

For now, I'm just trying to enjoy the time with my 2 precious little girls before the bundle of joy comes along. Jodi's parent's came down and visited with us this last Sunday to celebrate Thanksgiving with us, which went well. On Tuesday, we went to the Portland Children's Museum and had a blast. It's just amazing to see how kids can keep themselves entertained even when they aren't playing directly with one another, they tend to do their own thing, but just near each other. I don't know if it's the age difference or not, but Hope will be 4 years younger than Faith, so I wonder if they will tend to leave her out as they get older.
