Pregnant + teenagers + no sleep = one tired momma!!! Last night was the first night of our Fiesta Now weekend. All of the girls made it here safe and our leader is awesome! I am so excited to see what God is planning for these girls. I've really prayed that they would be open to a new person teaching them. They seem to not take change well. But they love her! Her name is Miki. I will post a pic of everyone this weekend sometime. Anyway...Miki got their attention right off the bat and they love her! It's like they've known her all along! Keep praying for us. It's raining right now and we have an outside service project to do today! I'm expecting great things from God today! Wait and see what he has in store!!!

6 weeks 2 days!!!! It's the final stretch now. I went to the doctor for my check up last Friday. She checked the heart beat which was great. Brady was with me and he loves that! Then she checked everything else. I'm in good condition other than my back. That's going to be the best relief when this kid gets out!!!! I'm so looking forward to Thursday. Tony got me a massage for my birthday and I'm going Thursday afternoon. It's all I can think about. Then this weekend rolls around!!!! Please start praying for Fiestia Now weekend. I will have 8 teen girls and 1 Russian here and I'm so excited. I can't wait to see how these girls will respond to God's call. I'll post some pics and let you know how the weekend goes!

Well what can I say! This week was crazy. God took care of me through crisis...through joy...and through my 31st birthday! Can you believe it? I'm 31! Yikes. I'm once again sitting in the recliner with my feet propped up because they look like elephant legs. I spent the evening last night with a friend sewing baby bags. I'm so proud of it!!!!! I also embroidered some stuff for her last night too. Then today we wake up and it's icy everywhere. So we're hold up in the house. I've been sewing...Brady's been playing and Tony's been practicing music! It's a day of do what ever you want and no one else cares! I need this kind of day more often! I went to my check up yesterday and she said I'm looking great! The baby has turned so he is actually head down. I am not dialited so that's good. And I'm now on a two week schedule with her! Less than 7 weeks and I can't wait.

Here it is!!! Brady in the snow! I tried to upload it yesterday and my computer was moving slow! Not much to talk about today. I'm wishing it was still snowing. The east coast got 21 inches!

LET IT SNOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This weekend we got a nice surprise! Friday about noon it started snowing! It didn't stop until about 7pm! I couldn't wait to get home and outside. Brady and I were the first on the street to get out there. We bundled up and took off. When Kierra got home she and her family joined us for a nice round of snowball fight...snow angles...and of course a snowman! I think our neighbor Scott...He's 25...had the most fun! Cute little Reagan looked like a snow bunny in her snow suit! I'm sure it will never snow that much here a again and we'll just have to tell Kaden about it!

6 days until my birthday!!!!! I love birthdays. I love the cake...the presents...and of course the attention! I just can't wait! I'm sitting here watching American Idol with Tony and baby Pillstrom is just wiggling around in my belly
! I don't have much to write about today. I've had a few contractions today. Well braxton hicks actually. I have a sneaky feeling that I will be going into labor this time and not just waiting around for my scheduled section.

I'm back!!! I didn't really go anywhere...I just haven't had my laptop for a few days and I have this bookmarked. I'm excited to report that I'm finally feeling better! I'm not sick anymore which is a much needed relief! I'm sitting in the recliner and I'm enjoying baby Kaden kicking away! I'm finally 30 week! that means 8 weeks and three days until baby gets here. I'm so ready to have him here. He's found my ribs and my hip bones and he seems to be very comfortable there. It's so weird to feel him moving around near my hips. He has also found some nerve that makes me cringe everytime he touches that spot. Since we're counting down...did I mention that it's 8 days until my birthday? 31...can you believe it?
