Why Do Pregnant Women Cry About Everything!!

It's pretty pathetic, actually. Here's a prime example. I saw a great movie the other day that you just have to rent. Maybe some of you have seen it. It's an older movie. It has everything.... action, adventure, suspense. Of course Good -v-Evil! And yes, the handsome, young guy does get the girl!
I was on the seat of my pants at every action-packed, danger filled turn!
And then there's the part at the end, where our young hero finds his father whom he has never seen. At this point, our brave soldier is being tortured by his captor and is near death. His father fights off and kills the enemy, saving our young hero from certain doom!
But alas, his father is now weakened from the fight and lies helpless on the floor, dying.
Kneeling down to help him, the two now really see each other for the first time. But they must leave now! They are in a dangerous place, and the shelter around them is about to be destroyed in a matter of moments! They must leave now or they will certainly die!
Our brave young hero attempts to lift his *sniff * dying father, but he says, "No, Son. Go! You must go without me!"
"No Father! I can't leave you now! I must save you!"
But with his last few breaths his father says *sniff * "You already have, son. You already have."
* sniff * *sniff *where's the tissues in this house, anyway?
Um, so then * sniff * he does get out in time, and takes his deceased father's body with him to be burned and buried respectfully.
And at the very end, all people everywhere are rejoicing because the good guys have won the battle, and the forces of evil has been overcome once and for all!
**** sigh. It's such a good movie.
Anyway, I bet you know what movie it is now, don't you? Have I given it away? Yes, I am talking about The Return of the Jedi.
That's right folks. Better get out your tissues for this one. It's a real tear jerker.
I am so pathetic.

"Kevin-isms" Part III

So we were playing Bible Trivia after dinner last night, and Kevin was trying his best to answer the questions (bless his little heart, I gave him the easiest ones I could find).
For example, Ryan would get a question like this: "How did Gideon's army win the battle against the midianites?" do you know it? here's the answer: They blew trumpets and smashed jars

Then I would ask kevin an easy one like this: "How many days and nights was Jonah in the great fish?" A: Three
That was an easy one.

So the game went on like that for a bit, and then I asked Kevin this one: "How old was Abraham when Sarah gave birth to their son Isaac?" ( I thought he'd get this one for sure. As you may know, the answer is 100)
So he is looking at me, obviously thinking it over intently. I give him a hint.
"Hey Kev, it's a really big number."
He smiles big and answers with great enthusiam " 7"
I tried not to laugh, and gave him another hint: "no, Kev he was really old!"
He smiles knowing he'll get it right this time, and says "8 "
It was very cute. *sigh*
After we played that for a while, we played a few more rounds of Hungry Hippos. No thinking required with that one!

I'm Still Here

Yep. Still here. Sorry. And wow, I actually got a minute to sit down and do this today, but as I sit here, there are two boys screaming in the other room.. hold on a second. Be right back.....
(insert elevator music here.)
Ok. Anyway, I hope all of you had a wonderful Christmas and New Year! I ate too much. On New Year's eve I was fairly certain my belly was going to explode.

Well, now that my first trimester is past, I have regained some of my energy. Although not all of it. Some things keep being left undone. Don't worry, I am drinking out of a clean glass. But I don't think there are any clean spoons to be found.
My brain has malfunctioned a bit lately too. On two separate occasions, I left a bag of groceries behind at the store. ( both in the same week).

Last night it occurred to me that I can list several things that start with the letter "P" for you!
(relevant to pregnancy of course!)
Here goes!
Pregnant- obvious
Popping out- I will ask Jeff to get a side view shot for you.
Pickles- really into them right now. doesn't matter what kind, either!
Potato chips- you know, with french onion dip! yummy! actually, any kind of chip will do.
Pretzels- the soft Super pretzels in the frozen section. i am loving them right now. Is any body else feeling hungry?
Pink- I have been blessed to have two friends loan me maternity clothes, and there are quite a few pink items. My closet never knew what pink was!
Potty- the story of my life. you know how it goes.
Problems (with my brain)- yesterday I gave the kids their vitamins and then went to put them in the fridge. duh.
Pooped!(as in tired)- by the end of the day, I am wiped out. oooh, that reminds me. I was going to tell you a funny story. Our neighbor has a blow up Santa in her yard. He's really cute and very rotund! Almost egg-like. anyway, she put him up about a week before Christmas and the kids loved it. Then, one morning Kevin noticed that poor Santa was face down flat in the snow.
Across the room I hear "Oh No! Santa's Dead!" It was so funny! I assured him that Santa would be back to himself around dinnertime when it gets dark. Anyway, I thought of that because on some days I feel like that flat,deflated Santa! which is probably why I haven't been posting regularly. Or maybe it's because I'm always standing in front of the fridge.
Speaking of that, it's lunchtime. oooh, I think there's leftover pasta from last night. Gotta go! :)
