Last week was a week of ups and downs. We finally had some interest on the house, but as usual we have not heard back anything yet. We also received a letter telling us that the company that was supposed to be putting on our new roof is going out of business. They already have our insurance check, so now we have to deal with filing complaints against them and seeing what can be done.
Wednesday night I took the girls to Awana at Mt. Hebron church. They both got to be in a class and they were both so excited. When we got home, Pap-paw asked Jolie what she had learned and she held her hands in a circle above her head and brought them down and said "God is everywhere." It was the most precious thing. Josie will be learning bible verses in her class and eventually earning a "life jacket." It is really a vest that we will put patches on, but she keeps calling it a life jacket. Kind of symbolic though, right :) They both had a blast. Josie held on to all her papers as if they were gold. They both are looking forward to going back this Wednesday.
Friday Joe had a guys night out so me and the girls had a girls night in. Before Joe left he let them have a bubble bath (he is the best husband and has been giving them baths for months now so that I don't have to bend over the tub to do it) and special foam soap. After their baths we rubbed down with special lotion, painted our finger nails all glittery, and then we painted our toes. Josie wanted alternating toes of pink and purple, so all three of us got the same pedicure :)
We then ate dinner, then had popcorn, candy, and rootbeer while we watched the only movie that I have found that they will both sit through-- Alvin and the Chipmunks. They love both the first one and the Squeakal, but all Redbox has is the Squeakal, so that is what we watched.
Saturday morning after lazing around for a little while we got dressed and headed to Montgomery on our way to Greenville. We had to go to Storkland to exchange some shoes Other Mama had bought Josie. While we were there Iused part of my birthday money to buy Joel's coming home outfit. This is not the best picture, but it has blue triming and it has boats on the front. Joe picked it out and I can't wait to see little Joel in it.
After that we continued our trek to Greenville to look at another used trailer. We were not impressed. Then we went to another dealership. Again, just considering all our options. We found one that we both absolutely love. It is a little out of our price range, so we are waiting on the other dealership to get its newest 4 bed, 3 bath trailer put together so we can see what it looks like. After that we rode around the golf course and then headed home.
Sunday we had church and after church we went to the BuckMasters Expo. Here is the girls with one of the deer we saw walking around.
After BuckMasters it started to rain so we decided to take the girls to Mall just for something different to do. Our first stop was the arcade where they both "magically" happened to win 14 tickets a piece. So they both got a tootsie roll and a plastic ring. After that we went to Build a Bear, where I used more of my birthday money to continue a family tradition. When I was prengant with Josie, Joe and I made her her first teddy bear at a Build a Bear. Then when I was pregnant with Jolie, Josie, Joe & I made Jolie her first teddy bear at a Build a Bear. So yesterday Josie, Jolie, Joe & I made Joel his first teddy bear. Well actually it is an elephant. We named him Albie.
Josie, Jolie & Albie
After Build a Bear the girls rode on the carasoul, we ate dinner and went home. The girls were both alseep by 8:00 p.m.
Wednesday I have another doctors appointment. This Thursday I will be 33 weeks. I feel huge and this heat is just overwhelming, but other than that I am doing good. Now that we have his coming home outfit the last thing we have to have is a car seat. I have a shower this Saturday so I'm looking forward to that as well as seeing how the girls' second night of Awana goes. I'll keep everyone updated.
