We are having a great time with James’s cousins Ash and
Annie. Having them here makes me
realize how much I love having a full house and want a big family. I like the challenge of finding a small and cheap adventure to do every day.
I love family meals, games of hide-and-go seek before bed,
watching John play with the kids, lots of laughter filling our house, and me being so tired by the time I go to bed
I sleep through my heartburn, and the baby on my bladder.
I am sure I am quite the sight
skipping all over the city with these three munchkins, bob the stroller, and a huge belly. Today two different homeless men complimented
me on my outfit. Hmmm. I am not really sure how to take that, considering no-one else said a thing. But I don’t care. I will focus on fashion another day. Right now I am busy building a baby and
having a blast with these three...
This sight is getting all too familiar. The kids taking a cat nap before we get home
so they can be wired ‘til bed time. That is when I count my blessings that my hubby will be home in a few hours to help out:) Happy Pioneer Day family and friends! Love, Jess
James's cousins Annie and Ashur are staying with us for a couple weeks while John's dad is in the hospital. So I've been dusting off my camp counselor skills from college for some summer fun. Here is what we've been up to so far...
Today I learned the literal meaning of a flash flood warning as I drove home from Chick-fil-a. The banks of the bayous are bulging and our roads have turned to rivers. Since we've returned to Houston we've received more rain in one week than we had during the entire summer last year. I think we can officially say the great Texas drought is behind us.
Down the street is drenched, but I think it would take another week of this before it reached our door.
A few showers don't slow James down. He could play outside all day.
This is when I looked over and saw James filling his boot with rain and drinking it. We might have a future survivor man on our hands.
It's been pretty nice being home bound all week. I've been able to get my nesting on. The only time we left the house was to curb a couple cravings. Like these crimson red cherries. Mmmmmmm!
Umbrella shaped mushrooms are are sprouting all over the place. Flooding is great for greening up the foliage.
I think all this precipitation is making my baby grow. I feel like I've doubled in size this past week. I can't complain though because this weather is helping keep things cool. I will do a rain dance for all my friends who are in the dry Utah desert. And hopefully you will all have a wet weekend too.
