I am looking forward to...

Girls NIGHT OUT!! Next week! YEAH!!!

This will be one of the few girls nights out that I can actually consume alcohol! :)

Beautiful Poem

A fragile butterfly
lights beside us
like a ray of sunshine.
For a fleeting moment
its majesty and beauty
belong to this world.
All too soon it flies
on again, and though
we wish it could
have stay,
we feel so luck
to have seen it.

It's getting "easier"

The last few days have been hard. When I found out I was pregnant, I announced it to the world! I posted it on my website (www.simply4women), myspace, emails, and then on here (it has since been deleted!). I wanted the world to know that we were having a precious baby in June. Problem is, many people did not see the newest update of "no more baby!" So I have had very supportive people give me their well wishes for this new baby. Then, I have to tell them there no longer is a baby. That is so hard to do. I just want to say how well things should have been. I'm holding strong through this all because Hal and I have both agreed, we want baby #3 soon! We will not be waiting to have a summer baby this time around. In time, we know we will get pregnant again. Until then, I will just have to pray that things go okay.

Hal and I also agreed that we will wait 8 weeks before we tell. Now, if you know me, you know I stink at secrets. So we shall see. I think I'll make a mental note how many times I mess up and tell someone when it happens. LOL :)

So as things get easier, I feel more confident in having baby #3.

Happy Halloween!

We had a great time trick or treating last night. This was the first time Madison walked to the door. Last year she spent the time in the stroller. This year, she was at the door and saying "candy!" and then that progressed to "please candy!" and then to "Trick or Treat Please" so it was very cute! Owen was an angel and said his please and thank you each time!

Here's some pictures for your enjoyment! Madison was Bedtime Bear (carebear) and Owen was Iron Man.

Walking on Egg Shells

People look at me like I might break down at any minute. I have one thing going for me at this point in time, God. I know that I have a blessed life. I know that God only gives us what we can handle and apparantly he thinks we can handle this. I have a lot of support from family and friends. It helps when people understand "me." Yes, I tend to get fustrated with people easily. Yes, I tend to get moody. Yes, I'm stubborn (yes Melissa V., I admit that) But, it does help that my family and friends can simply reach out and say how sorry they are. Nothing more really needs to be said. It just helps. Thank you.
