Well the Midwest has some crazy lightning storms. Today at noon it started to get real dark outside and you could see these dark clouds rolling in... I hurried and opened all the binds and and waited for the show to start.
I know it sounds crazy but I LOVE watching thunderstorms.

Where has time gone??
Sometimes it think I'm not old enough to worry about car insurance premiums... health insurance deductibles... Honey whats for dinner? Did you iron my shirt? Lisa I need a check to pay for this. Lisa, I need this... EVERYTHING NEEDS TO STOP!!
Emi is now 9 months old! I can't believe I have been babysitting her for 7 months. I have see her reach for things, roll over, crawl, pull herself up onto things, climb stairs, feed herself, and more... what happened to the little baby that used to sleep all day??
My nephew turns 4 today... HAPPY BIRTHDAY BRENDAN!! but seriously how, it seems like yesterday that he was a little one, learning to walk and talk. Now he is a big boy and can do almost everything by himself. Can play the WII by himself, goes to the bathroom by himself, buckles his own seat belt!
Sometimes we focus so much on the future (1 year until we move, 4 years until Ryan graduates, 8 years then we will be completely finished! ) we forget to enjoy the present...

Taylor and Bella go to daycare/preschool during the day, which is really nice cause it allows Emi and I to stay on our normal schedule. I am not a morning person, but I am surprised at how well I am functioning at 6am! I can get all the girls dressed, fed, hair done, teeth brushed at to school by 8am!!!! but by 2 o'clock (when Emi naps) I CRASH! I take an hour to two hour nap depending on how long Emi sleeps. Then its full force again... pick up girls, make dinner, let them run and burn as much energy, bath time, and then bedtime at 7:30!
So to all those moms of 3 or more... WAY TO GO!! I now feel your pain and exhaustion :) Its been a great experience and even fun.

He had to apply and was interviewed for it. They have to keep a B average and do community service projects. Lets just say he'll be busy.

Since I am not good as keeping a surprise, and Easter is on Sunday, I had to give it to him on Saturday! In between the morning and afternoon sessions we went outside and played a few rounds. Its pretty funny cause we have each grew up playing different rules but we pretty much make up new ones as we go :)
Also for Easter, Ryan got us pink frosted sugar cookies. Might not sound like a big thing but I LOVE LOVE LOVE these cookies!

Today was 80 degrees!!! Emi and I went on a walk and then I though "Why go back inside??" So I grabbed a blanket and we laid on the grass and played and ate snacks! It was beautiful outside. There was a slight breeze and it felt so good outside.
And the best part is that it was snowing in Utah!!! Yes Utah go snow and I was wearing shorts in Missouri!
Ok so there is my one positive about Missouri... Maybe soon I will find another one :)
