Mike and Andrew finished up the girls' closet Monday afternoon. YAY! Now I have to just get my bootie in gear to get all the clothes back in there like I want them. Then the next project is the finish painting the bedroom. I am so proud of the guys. They do such a wonderful job on their projects. I am thankful that I have a sweet hubby who takes the time to teach his sons how to work w/ their hands.
Tuesday morning, I got up w/ Mike and left when he left at 5:30am. I had to go to Wally World to get groceries. It was the only time I could spare for that amount of time. It was nice to not have to wait in a LONG line to check out, or have people bumping into me while I'm trying to shop. I would have preferred to sleep, but it is nice to know the shopping is done.
Wednesday morning, I got out a wooden train set that had been sitting in my gift closet for a couple years. I bought several of them after Christmas one year and paid almost nothing for them. Everytime we go into Books-A-Million or Barnes & Noble, the little ones go straight for the train set. I thought about the one we had at home but kept forgetting to get it out for them. I needed a few minutes w/ the older kids, so I decided the train set would be the perfect distraction for the little Hillians. Ahhh.... an hour! I finally did have to put it away b/c they were arguing, but it was good while it lasted. The pics we snapped aren't the best quality, but you get the idea.
This morning was haircut time for the girls. As much as I want my hair cut, I didn't dare get in the chair. I know that if I let them start cutting, I won't let them stop until it is in a cute short cut. I want to keep it longer until after Jonathan is born. I want to be able to pull it back in a ponytail while I'm in the hospital and not have to worry about how my hair looks when visitors come. I know Lissa and Julie will be there w/ cameras, so I can't have my hair standing up all over the place. Mike is wanting my hair short again, because he is sick of it being in his face at night. If he rolls over to snuggle up behind me, he always tucks my hair under his pillow. LOL
Well, I have to go check the veggie soup in the slow cooker. Yes, I'm making veggie soup. I have been craving it for weeks, and I am finally making it. I know it is still warm outside, but it is cool inside. The kids aren't complaining about my decision. They have been wanting soup just as long as I have.
Love ya bunches!
