In a Nutshell...

...MOST of what's been going on with us lately...

Selling our Trailblazer, buying a Suburban...from North Carolina, getting ripped off by our car shipping company, finagling to get our new car here in time for our old car to go, celebrating the arrival of our new 7 passenger vehicle, learning to drive said 7 passenger vehicle, saying goodbye to Ben's developmental specialist, finally attending Ben's ECEP appointment, moving forward with COMPLETELY NEW physical therapy plan, praying for direction for treatment, constructing our new playroom, cleaning out and organizing our garage, selling unwanted things on Craigslist, shopping thriftily for our new nursery, adjusting to life without Deuce, feeling relieved that he found a happy home on an acre of land with lots of animals and a new family, wishing I was taking pictures but always forgetting my camera, counting down the days until our weekly "date night" resumes on the 24th, learning to prioritize based on the needs of the moment, trying to squeeze out the last drops of summer,embracing the start of our favorite time of year in Albuquerque, the fall, enjoying time with friends, missing family, dreaming about baking, loving on some little boys, wading through what seems like an endless sea of teething and molars, dabbling with potty training, growing a baby brother or sister for those said little boys, being busy as ever but trying to relish EVERY moment, oh, and hoping to be back on track with regular updates. :)

Love the color of your nutshell! Continue to savor the most of each moment, time goes bye faster then we like, but gives use glimpes of better days and memories ahead!!

I think "in a nutshell" bout sums it up. Brent nearly had a seizure trying to read the post (I found it hilarious). Sounds like a busy, busy time of year...oh wait, that's all year :)

What a clever post. I'm glad you are trying to savor every moment--I wish I would have learned that earlier in my own life!

hahaha so first, I also want to compliment you on your creative use of color and size... second I have to say.. I forgot you have a dog named Deuce.. and I know thats what you call the boys.. so my first thought.. was.... WHERE ARE THE BOYS?!?! You know.. you don't get rid of the first when it is time for the second.. no do overs. I don't care if the boys are happy on a farm!!! hahaha I love you!

I think that's enough. Don't worry about the pictures and extra fluff stuff. The time dictates when you have time to be able to do the extras. You are concentrating on quite a few important things right now. Don't overload your plate. You should be resting as much as possible. You know, you do have #3 who will be here sooner than you think!!!!

Love you guys,

mom

Is that all? For you that seems like the average week! You do realize that you have TONS of family and friends here to support you. Ask and ye shall receive dear Ra-Ra. I love you.

Hahahahaha! I am cracking up at Tania's comment because I thought the SAME thing about Deuce until Kyle reminded me that you had a dog named Deuce. Tania, that's hilarious!
