Lets try this again...

I have attempted to post on 3 different occasions since my last post (fathers day, and 2 times after that) and can you believe that as I anxiously awaited for my pics to upload...it kept giving me an error message after an eternity of waiting! Since I'm always in a rush, I never had the time to try again. Plus, a retyped post is never as funny as the original. All your thoughts and passion go into the original and there's just not enough enthusiasm left. So, I shall try this again!

Well, soo much has happened since my last post. Here's a run down...
Sold our van (2006 Honda Odyssey...boo hoo)
Bought a car (2007 Honda Civic...woo hoo!)
Fathers day
God Rocks Concert
My baby boy is 95% potty trained

May not sound like much but hey...that's a lot for me! Lets start off with the Vehicle Situation. We purchased a van about 2 years ago hoping to fill it to the rim with children (I'm exaggerating...just 4 tops). Well, while we still would like to have more children, its not in the immediate future so we decided to revisit the car situation because gas was kinda killing us. My hubby drives the van to work every day and it's about an hour commute coming and going. We only needed space for 4 so...we decided on the civic. We use to have a civic before until someone decided to permanently borrow it without our permission (they stole it okay...they stole it!) which left us with just the van. So yes...that's that. We love the Civic. Gas is much better which makes us very happy! However, I get a little sad every time I see a van...she was good to us, but she had to go! lol!

Fathers Day. We had a great time. Went to church. Bonded with the Father in-law, then bonded with my dad. The dads were happy...and that's all that counts right? I attempted to blog a super cute post on my daddy and hubby however, technical difficulties occurred (lets not go there).

God Rocks Concert My sister in law invited us to her church where they were having a vacation bible school event combined with a concert. God Rocks is a dynamic children's ministry that truly is awesome. My kids found out about them a year ago and totally love them! Shoot, I love them! Anyway, I was able to take my nieces along with us this time and they had a great time! Can't wait til they come back again!

Mr. Caleb. My baby is pretty much potty trained, and I'm so proud. I've been trying with him for a while however, it wasn't quite getting thru. He just wouldn't go on his own. I finally decided to set my alarm on the phone every 2 hours to make him go potty. Well, after many messes and accidents later...he's got it! He's going on his own now. We're now working on 2 things, Poo-poo, and staying dry overnight. Our goal was to have him set before he turns 3 so we are ahead of schedule. Woo hoo! Well, this is it for now. Til next time.






















Will post more pics of GodRocks concert soon. God Bless you all!

Decisions, Decisions we have to make. The civic is a great car too so all is good. I totally understand about the technical difficulties. I had them on Sunday's post too but I managed after two hours of fudging with it. Damaris raved about God Rocks...We will have to definitely go next time. Those pics are great too...

Hey girlie! I love your new car. Any Honda ROCKS in my book :-) I love the layouts you created with the American Crafts kit...there's gonna be some serious scraplifting going on there! Oh, and the pics of your family are adorable. When I have a baby I'll send her/him over so you can potty train, OK? That will give you another baby toward the 4 you're aiming for... LOL! See you soon! HUGS!!!!
