I wanted to share a few good times we have had lately, and what we have been up to, since I never blog anymore.
*Ashley is getting sooo big, her little round baby face is beginning to become more slender and she is looking more and more like a little girl instead of a baby *sigh* She is talking so much more. Last Friday night I heard a first sentence from her. "That's funny Dad!" as kirk was tickling her. Today she came up to me and said "Wheres binky at?", to which I said "Where did you put it?", and she follows up with "I don't know." and walks away calling to her binky. Crazy, huh? Told you she is getting big.
*I have began babysitting Kirk's niece a while back, and Tessa and her have a fun time playing and make-believing. One of the favorite "games" is Penny and Bolt. Tessa is typically Bolt because she LOVES pretending to be a dog.
*We had blue stakes come yesterday to mark our yard for power lines and gas and whatnot, so we can start working on the fence for our backyard (Ashley and Rosco are both wanderers, Tessa we have luckily scared to death of the street). That will be our summer project, well, mostly Kirks :) and mine is going to be painting the kitchen cabinets. Also, we are going to lay a new kitchen floor (thanks dad) later in the summer after all the cabinet painting is done. I think both the fence and cabinets will be quite large, long projects for us!
*I had a birthday last week. I am now 29, gulp, my last year in my twenties. It was nice, we went out with the kids on Thursday night to IHOP (we had good coupons and kids eat free after 4 pm) and then Saturday night Kirk and I went out. We went up to draper area to do some shopping at the stores I love (Tai Pan Trading anyone??) and grabbed dinner at Panda Express, which I LOVE. It was really nice to be out going somewhere I have been wanting to go forever and getting yummy food WITHOUT the kids. For my birthday, Kirk got me a jig-saw, which may seem odd, but I have been wanting to get one, and it tells me something very important: Kirk is ok with me starting some of the Knock-Off Wood projects!!! Plus, I have some kitchen chairs to redo (shoot, I shoulda had kirk and I go to the fabric store for my bday!) that need new seats cut out using a jigsaw. Also, we found a nice used bike online for me, so that's also a bday present for me, it will be nice to all ride to the park this summer and for me to get some exercise.
*I have lost some more weight, not as fast as I was, but still losing so that's good. My total loss so far is approximately 18 lbs. And, I have now noticed that clothes are getting loose. It's nice to finally really notice and I even bought some new jeans a few weeks ago, and I bought them in a size smaller than I was wearing. yeah!
I think this will be all for now, but I do have Easter post to make. We took the girls to the city Easter egg hunt last Saturday, too funny, they loved it. I need to download the video camera card and show you all how funny it was!
