Update!! And upcoming give away

We are FINALLY all better, thank you Jesus. There was alot of praying for those couple of weeks we were sick. Poor Paige was the sickest of us all since she got the flu AND strep throat.
This weekend hubby and I went away ALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL by ourselves to Pigeon Forge, Tenn. My parents kept the kiddos. It was a much needed time together. WE actually got to see a good bit of snow on top of the mountain as we went over. We had a really nice time and it helped me come back and be the kind of momma I need to be. :)
Easter sure snuck on me, I had to run out yesterday to find my oldest daughter her Easter dress which was NOT easy considering what fits her is super super short. We were out trying to find panty hose because her baton pics also snuck up on me. She was the ONLY girl there without make up on for those pictures, her father straight up told me she would not be wearing make up.
I also had a midwife appt. yesterday. NOthing much to report. She couldn't find the heartbeat so we did ANOTHER ultrasound, I am 12 - 13 weeks and this was my third ultrasound lol. Baby is fine and was bouncing all around, hence why we could not find heartbeat. My next appt will be in 5 weeks and that is my anatomy ultrasound appt. Cannot believe it is already time for that!
********** I know this is what you have all been waiting on, please keep checking back with me because I will be doing a give away pretty soon. IT will not be anything huge but will be really nice to recieve for anyone. ***********

Teenagers, flu, and a little of everything else

My twin sons turned 13 Friday. I wanted to write up a long thing about them because they are true miracles but we have had the flu here and I am so tired. But they went from 3 and 4 pound babies to taller than me in a blink of a eye, it all goes so fast. They have no idea that they made me the person I am today. They are true blessings. Today one of our other daugthers turns 7, I just cannot believe it. We were suppose to have them all a birthday party yesterday but we had to cancel that. I had to take the birthday girl to her heart doctor this past week and she got a very good report this time so I am proud of that. Please pray that we get well very soon, 7 kids and a dh with the flu and a pregnancy is a bit trying. I can barely keep the laundry going not to mention worrying about feeding everyone. Hubby is finally feeling better thank goodness but now he is so behind on all his jobs, he has alot of catching up to do this week. Well I had alot more to say but I am feeling a bit rough so I am gonna run. Hope everyone else is doing well. God bless.

Good weekend

Saturday we loaded up all the kids and just took a ride. We went a few places in commerce and then just drove. Took them to a couple of parks and just spent time as a family. It was really nice. Then when we got home I had to run to the grocery store, of course. Sunday was church and then we came home and just stayed around the house. I actually took me a little nap , about 30 minutes, and it felt so goodddddddd!!!!!!!! Hubby cooked ribs on the grill for supper so that just was the icing on the cake. :)
Today Issac has his 18 month check up and then I have a midwife appt today also. Not sure why they scheduled me back so soon but oh well. so that is pretty much what is going on with us.
