We've been busy, busy, busy this month. Here's what we've been up to: David finished nursing school and has his pinning ceremony tomorrow. Can't wait till he takes his boards and gets his license! Things are definately looking up for us. Our tenants signed a new lease, we are moving in March to a different house hopefully within the ward boundaries, David will be starting his BSN program online soon, we've been reading the Book of Mormon every night, I've been healing quickly and have been able to be more and more active - which means the house actually doesn't look like a disaster zone anymore, and we've all gotten used to being a family of 6.
Two weeks ago, we went to the mall. Our mall has a train that drives around on the second floor and the girls always beg to ride it. David just happened to have cash on him and generously allowed them to ride. I had to go to cause Paisley isn't old enough to go without a parent.
This past weekend, the weather was just gorgeous so I bribed Amber and Jade with a picnic lunch at the park if they would clean the kitchen - vacuum, mop, scrub counters/table, do the dishes, and make the lunch. They decided that was a good deal and got it all done in time for us to walk to the park. After a sandwich/cheetos/juice box lunch, the three oldest had a fun time playing.
And the randoms:
Amber built this fort. I thought it was actually a pretty neat hangout.
Our van has a dvd player and David got the girls wireless headsets. Paisley LOVES hers and always asks for her "ears" when we get in the car.
Getting a bath from Daddy and Paisley. Shyla is my first baby that really likes baths. She lays there kicking and squirming but sooo happy to be in the warm water.
I just think this picture is so typical of my girls....
Shyla working on her upper body strength. See her red hair?? It's even redder in person. =)
