I picked up these ugly drawers at a yard sale for .15 each a few weeks ago. I thought they would be perfect for storage under the baby's crib. I need a few more coats of white paint, but I've started them at least. I covered wrapping paper with contact paper for the bottom just to look cute. I still need handles on the front and if I can find wheels cheap enough- i'll out those on the bottom so they roll out- if not oh, well. Who knew wheels were so expensive anyway??? I also made the ruffle for the crib out of the shower curtain from Target tonight. It feels good to get a few things checked off my huge to do list before he arrives! I'm sure in a few weeks when the heat hits- I'll be confined to my bed with swollen ankles & zero energy and I'll be glad I got a few things accomplished!

I went to the Dr. this morning and things are looking great! I have 7 more weeks although I'm measuring a week ahead (she won't move my date, darn.) I'll go on July 13th if not sooner on my own. I'm excited and ready to have him here! I've been going through his clothes and imagining what he will look like bundled up in them. I wonder how much he will look like Tristin. The kids are out next week for the Summer and Grace starts T-ball on Tuesday, so I know the weeks will fly by with all the kids here to keep me on my toes. 7 more weeks... I'm trying to enjoy how simple it is with 4 kiddos, I know 5 will difficult- but I'm ready! My back,feet, hips and ribs are all ready for him to be out as well!

Last weekend was great for yard sales. (friday was horrible, but Saturday made up for it!) I found 2 boxes of canning jars for $ 3.00 each, 3 winter coats for next year for the girls at .50 & .25 each, lots of shoes for Grace which were free, .25 and $ 2.00 for a new pair, lots of baby clothes for .25 each, a scout shirt for Tristin which he will need next year for $ 2.00 and a bunch of other little things. Thank you yard sales- we wouldn't survive without you!

The last 2 weekends, the boys have left us girls and gone on a few campouts through church. The first was with G-pa Max and his ward and this past one was with ours. They were just quick little over nighters, but they had fun each time. They got to grill up their steaks, play in the dirt and do boy stuff. The girls and I had a few "girl parties" which consisted of: pizzas, movies and sleepovers in my bed, at least the 1st weekend, by the 2nd weekend- they were in their own beds!
