a lot of updates

So if you are wondering why I haven't posted pics of the house, or updated for a while, it is because life has taken over:) So I will try to summarize without writing too much:)

-Moved in-same day I went in the hospital (twice) with stomach flu
-Lucy had stomach flu, two colds and both ear drums burst. It was for her entire 10 month of life. So sad for her. I might say no to hanging out if your kids have been sick, I don't think I can go through a month like that again..HORRIBLE!!! I'm glad Lucy is finally back to her smiley self!
-Evan's Spring Break came and went.
-we caught 5 skunks and finally put up chicken wire to block the skunks from living under the deck
-tons of snow!!!
-we are slooooowly unpacking, wish my body was up for more
-my baby is measuring almost 3 weeks ahead of time, and we have decided to schedule a c-section for June 1 rather than risking infection and ending up in a c-section anyway, especially with such a big baby
-we bought a guest bed(it got stuck going down in the basement, we almost cut a hole in the wall to make it fit, but Evan and I work together well, and somehow managed to get it downstairs) we love visitors. Evan sliced his finger open this night and Lucy was especially fussy, our Friday night turned out a lot different than planned.
-been making plans for baby, family, house, cleaning other house, visitors, etc
-Evan is now going to teach new subjects and is learning lots
-Lucy is crawling everywhere, up on everything, and is starting to stand by herself, she likes to walk when Evan holds her hands.
-church is hard with Lucy-nap time, feeding, my nap time, etc Evan helps tons!
-couponing tons and finding deals on craigslist
-Evan set up Peter's crib(someone gave us a crib-with no bolts so we matched some at Home Depot, took 2 trips, two dressers, and a bookshelf)
-finding out new things about the house
-wishing I could get a massage everyday

Anyway, life has been busy but good. We are getting lots done, trying to settle in, and all stay healthy and well. Here are a few pictures..I will post more when we unpack more:)

Counting Lady Bugs while I sort clothes in Peter's room

Trying to get her fever down in the tub

Cleaning up the chairs we got for free off of craigslist

Evan and I kept switching off in this position with our sick little girl. None of us were getting any sleep.

Still sick, two trips to the doctor, and she finally got put on some antibiotics for her ear drums(just after having stomach flu)

Our beautiful snow. It made the tree sink down and touch the ground, when Evan tried hitting the snowing off, the branches flipped up and hit him, it was comical!

Our $5 toy from craigslist, it turns into a walked too. She is growing up so quickly!

Evan is so happy! The basement is turning into a very fun place to hang out. He just set up his pinball and arcade.

Lucy watching daddy set up Peter's crib.

28 weeks with Peter, I am further along now but I haven't been good at
taking or posting prego pics.

So exciting! Can we come Friday the 2nd to help finish the closet door and help you unpack?

Seems like things don't slow down for you. I'm glad little Lucy is getting better. Poor thing...Poor mom, and poor dad too. Sick babies are no fun for anyone. About two months until the baby comes! Wow, that was fast!!

So glad that you and Lucy are both feeling better, that you have moved into your new house and that you have gotten rid of the skunks. It is nice to have you back in the ward.
