Blogging blur! (long update)

We are back from Colorado. We had a great time visiting family and I took a ton of pictures. One problem...we just got the disc to fix our computer and we haven't done it yet. That is my hubby's job tonight....fix my computer, so I can get back in the blog world. Boy do I miss writing posts and boy do I have a TON to write about and a TON of pictures to post!

I just LOVE my camera and the pictures it takes. Usually I call my father-in-law to help with the kids pictures for their birthdays, but I decided to take Chase to the baseball field myself and test out my photo skills for his 4 year old pictures. I haven't gotten to upload them on the computer, but on my camera LCD screen...they look GREAT! I am very proud of myself...maybe a little more proud of my camera. ;) I can't wait to show you all how they turned out. Soon enough, I can't believe that he turns 4 in less than 3 weeks. My little all star will be starting 'school,' the day after his 4th birthday, 2 mornings a week at my sister-in-laws school. That is a whole different post itself, and I will write about it soon.

Abby is all about potty training. She loves to go on the big girl potty. She has been in big girl underwear all day and has been dry since 8 am...that is almost 8 hours of being dry, on our first day of potty training. She gets a sticker every time she goes potty, and puts it on a potty chart that I made her. I set the timer for every 15 minutes and she tries to go pee, if she does, we set it for 15 more minutes, if she doesn't pee, I set it for 5 minute increments until she does. She is doing great and I can only hope that things stay this well! I would LOVE to only have no kids in diapers, during the day, when the baby comes.

I will work on getting my computer back up and running tonight, uploading over 300 pictures, finishing my last load of 6 baskets of laundry, making homemade pizza for dinner, and writing a few fun posts for you all to read.


for all you expectant moms and mommies of little ones, under 1 year old. I have contacted some of you and feel free to comment or e-mail me if you are interested, but I am wondering if you would be interest in a baby blog swap?
Here's how it would work. I would get the names and e-mail addresses of all the mommies who would like to participate, then everyone would get paired up. You'd contact your partner, read their blog, if you don't already do so and learn as much about their little one or their little one-to-be as possible, to put together a $25 package for them (not including shipping) and send the package out by a certain date, so that everyone gets their package around the same time. Then we can blog about what we got and everyone else can see what you got in your package.
I already have a handful of mommies that would like to do this, so let me know if you are interested by commenting on this post or e-mailing me at

I hope everyone has a great rest of your weekend!
