I love Coeur d'Alene!

So, we are off for the weekend to cda! I am so excited! The Man has a job interview up there. Pray that we might get it and that they will give us enough money for us to want to accept! The cost of living up there is way higher than Boise, so we would have to be making a lot more than we do now in order to have a house and other such nice things. Anyway, I'll fill more in about it later.

Must one pray to get some creativity?

Ok, so lately I've been in a really wierd funk. Not like a, " Ugh, I don't want to do anything" type funk, but a " I really want to learn a bunch of new things at one time so how do I pick which one to start with?" type funk. I know, wow, that was a lot to say right? Well, here is the low down.
I have a friend who is incredible at sewing and she paints and does cute furniture, blah blah blah. So I thought to myself, " I could totally do that." Yeah, right. I have started a really cute shelf thing for Little Girl's room and its part of the way done. But now I am at a stand still. I can't decide which paper to use and pictures I want to mod podge onto it. I also want to stencil some stuff on there, but I don't know what would look good. I have no creative imagination I guess. Like I said, should I pray for it, or is that wierd? I also want to take up knitting. And I wan't to learn how to eat better and all about cool homeopathic remedies and such. I wan't to make these really cute shirt dresses for baby girls ( and have them actually look good and fit!) That means I have to learn how to sew better. Ugh, see what I mean? Too much stuff at one time! I don't really want to have ten unfinished projects around the house! I want to have a creative outlet, something Im really good at that I can be proud of. I guess I will just have to pick one and work on it, but which one to pick? Any Ideas? oh, and I wan't to get better at photography, so that fund to get Ashleigh a really nice digital camera is still open for donations! =-)

But mom, you're already fat.

So, I randomly asked The Boy today ( and this is just a random question here people, so don't get any ideas!!) how he would feel if we ever had another baby. He said he thought that it would be pretty neat and then proceeded to explain to me me how babies got into my tummy, " The people make the baby and we go and get it and then they put it in your tummy, right?" (Well, close Hun.) Then I said," remember when mommy's tummy was big with Eden? I would get all fat again, huh?" The Boy then ever so sweetly repied, " but mom, you're already fat!" Ugh..stick a knife right into my heart kiddo and turn it quick!! I laughed though, cuz it was pretty funny and made sure he knew how uncorrect that statement actually was. " Mommy's not really fat, right?"; " no mommy, not really..." =-)

One whole month!

I told you guys I am not very good at this blogging thing! Maybe I should do the ABC day thing. Anyway, there is really too much to write about today, so I will just put up some pics! We went to National Night Out Against Crime last night. They had all kinds of fun things. The kids got their faces painted ( a spider for The boy and a lady bug for Little Girl, though neither of them really look like what they are supposed to be!) and they each got a balloon creation. The Boy got a sword with a matching cap, hat type thingy and Little Girl got a flower, which is pretty darn cute! All in all it was a fun family outing.Is that a lady bug on Little Girl's Cheek..or a smooshed and bloodied frog with the chicken pox?And The Boy's " spider" looks more like a..well I don't even know what to compare it to.... ( good thing all this was free huh?)
