Halloween 2015

So, yea, it's been A LONG time since I posted.  Let me catch you up.  We finally moved out of the city and back to the country.  Sadly, I made a morning sickness decision on the house to move in to.  WE had looked at lots of houses over the few months of the summer and either they were too much, too small, too far out of town or too cookie cutter….so one night in July when my morning sickness was at it's peak, we were told about a cute old adorable house in a beautiful spot. We went, I was sick, and tired, and tired of looking and said, yea, it's great, I love it!  Before really thinking about the size, how many of us live there, life without a dishwasher again, and the fact that I'd be there alone half of the week every week.  So yes, the last 3 months have been full of stress, bedrest (bled for a month due to a severely torn placenta…which is still torn, but I'm off bedrest for now), a house full of mice, leaky faucets, super weird smells, yellow tiled countertops, carpeted kitchen, boys sleeping in a closet room, no room AT ALL for a crib, and it's around 1100 sq ft.   I do have to say, our landlords are amazing.  They do what they can to take care of teverything right away. No one had lived here for years, so these things were bound to happen….I just didn't think it would be so annoying.  And yes, let's top it off with chickens that dont' havve  a coop so I have to catch them all once a week and put them back in, pigs that don't have a pen, and they're getting quite aggressive and loud, and the fact that my 3 oldest kids have all been beaten up in the last week at school.  So bam!  There it is!

Now on to good news.  This guy…so cute!  He's doing so well in school and has made some great friends and, like the rest of us, is LOVING being back in the country (of course, he doesn't mind the mice..he had one go right by him one night and I couldn't get him to care).  And Gus gus, our newest member of our family.  He's turned out to be a completely awesome dog!  He's huge, but docile and happy.

 This last weekend was Halloween.   The kids had a few costumes for the different events.  Pearce's cowboy was my favorite!  I love his cowboy face!  And vivian's first choice was Spiderman girl.

 Then an owl, "whoo whoo"


And mine, Jase's and Jaden's picture will be coming soon….as soon as I can get my dumb phone to email it to my e mail and then download it (taking an hour or so) onto this computer!  I feel like such a pioneer!!! It's kinda driving me insane!.

Yay! You posted! & I love your kids! I miss you guys so much, I read this awesome quote this morning ( a new favorite of mine) and I thought of you. "Love grows best in little houses. With fewer walls to separate, where you eat and sleep so close together you cannot help but communicate. If we had more room between us, think of all we would miss. Love grows best in little houses just like this!"

oh there's definetly less room and more communicating, not sure if it's uplifting though. haha.
