Re: August '11- March Chat

Gosh Alison- I haven't even thought about what my kiddos will do while I'm in the hosp. I'm still debating on how I'm going to get my ODD to school everyday. School will start about the same time I'm due, so that won't be fun. I wanted her to ride the bus but my SIL and MIL keep telling me bad things about what happens on them.

Carrie- CUTEEEE!!!!! I need to do pics too.

Naomi- Sounds like you all had fun!! Vivian has her first bday party to go to next wknd. She's so excited.

Man- it's 11:30 and I've barely done anything today. I really need to get busy. OH! and we are officially cutting 2yr molars! I actually can see one coming in. Here we go.

So cute, Carrie! The NB one kills me, lol!

Vanessa, I'd have her ride the bus. I'm not super worried about stuff like that- I'd be a lot more worried with someone driving them, haha!

Lana's bday party was Sat and it went great! So much easier than doing it at home and I think it cost less by like $50 PLUS no cooking or clean-up! Totally worth it.

After we test drove a vehicle we were looking at (it's a no-go) and looked at some more. I found a GORGEOUS low-mileaged Denali for $15,900. It's a lot more than I wanted to pay but I am in love with it. Completely loaded with everything, including captain chair middle row and entertainment package. Waiting on a call back from the credit union now. That should be a go so hopefully we can get in to test drive this week.

My tax return came today- woot! If we do get the Denali we're going to put $3000 down, which will just leave enough for an addition or a garage/ shed and no fun stuff, but oh well. I'm sick of stuffing 3 kids into a truck.

I decided I want to work more hours so I'm going to start that tomorrow. Just an extra hour a day but it'll put an extra $150 gross a month into my pocket, so it'll be nice if we have that car payment. I'm not sure where I'll be finding that extra hour though, lol

Re: August '11- March Chat

Alison, you are in the home stretch! I bet you're getting so excited! I remember the first time I went somewhere with all four, and I looked back and thought, I drive a bus! Didn't you say you got an Odyssey? How did you configure everything? I have the two big girls in the back mostly because they can strap themselves in, and the two little in the middle.

Crystal, so exciting! The car sounds really nice...fingers crossed everything works out!

Oh, and as far as Disney goes I think their favorite part was meeting characters. Grace liked Ariel's Grotto, Kate kinda freaked out on most rides, Claire liked the Peter Pan ride and Brynn loved the carousel, riding the monorail and It's a Small World. All four of them really liked the parades, especially the electrical parade. We are probably going back for a day next month before it gets too hot.

Crystal- Whoot for getting tax return! And super Yay for no work Bday party! Hope it goes smoothly for buying the vehicle you want. We are saving some of our TR money for doing an addition to the back of our house. Oh and that'll be nice to have the extra money from just working an extra hour ea day. I hope I can find some work down here once the kids are all in school. (granted, that'll be 5+ yrs away)

Carrie- We have an Odyssey too, and that's how we have the lo's set up.

It is sooo windy and cold today! But at least the snow is almost all melted and the sun is shining today.

Yes we got the odyssey. I love it and we did the same thing--the boys in the back the girls in the 2nd row.

I walk around with the 3 kids and the huge belly and think--oh lord these people must think I am crazy!

Hopefully this works...first time posting from my phone.
I have to admit, smartphones are pretty awesome...especially when practically free with the plan.
Making cookies today. Had to run to the store halfway through miXing them because SOMEONE ate too many chocolate chips from the bag as snack the last few nights. That so.done was actually Wayne and not me!!
Better get back to paying attention. I always burn at least one tray of cookies.

Hey everyone! I need to do some cleaning, but I really wanted to say hello. And show some Odyssey love. This is my 3 plus 3 day care kiddos on our way to drop Izzy off at Girl Scouts. She has her meetings at a community room attached to the fire station. You should've seen the looks when I opened the doors and kids just kept pouring out. The firemen were cracking up. Clown car status!


Oh man. Pic is too big. I will have to share later.

:wave2: me too ! me too! I want cookies!!

I haven't really been out with all 3 kids in a while. lol But no one would know I was pg yet. 15 wks and just lookin like I already ate all the cookies. But I think around here it's not unusual to see lots of larger sib groups.
