An update...

Matthew and I had our "date" on Friday night. We went out to Noodles and Company (his choice of course) for dinner. We did some talking there. He didn't have much more to share with me about what's been bothering him, but that's ok. We then went to look at some things for the his little sister. He had fun playing with the mobiles at Pottery Barn kids and coming up with other ideas for playing in the crib with her. It's so funny to see how his little mind works!

We then stopped in Barnes and Noble cafe for a treat. He got a smoothie and I got hot chocolate. We sat down at a little table for a bit and chatted. He says he is worried about me missing him while he is at school. He thinks about me while at school and wonders what I am doing. I told him I do miss him, but I am fine. I look forward to seeing him after school and encouraged him to not worry so much. I also told him how proud of him I am that he did not cry at school on Thursday or Friday. He said he had a fun time with me and he is looking forward to more times alone with mom. I think it went well. We will see what the coming week brings.

After discussing with his teacher, I will try not volunteering on Wednesday. I think if he sees me at school it makes it harder for him. We'll see if that makes a difference.

I haven't been able to scrap at all because all of my stuff is packed up in bins. Getting ready to move stuff out to the garage so we can work on the basement. Hopefully once our office is done (and we adjust to having 3 kiddos!), I can scrap to my heart's content. :)

We are looking forward to Thanksgiving this week. I always look forward to spending time with my family. Also I am looking forward to shopping on Friday. I hope to get a lot of my xmas shopping done.

Only time will tell....

Matthew has been having a rough time since last Monday. He's been crying when he has to go to school and even when he is going to bed. He says it's because he misses me while he is at school. He also worries about me missing him too much. He is scared about what is going to happen when his little sister arrives. All kinds of things going through his head and he is having trouble dealing with it all. For a six year old, he worries a whole lot. It makes me sad to see him crying. I send him to school every day hoping that will be the day there will be no tears. He is exactly like me though. Holds his heart on his sleeve. Sensitive and caring. I guess that's why it's so, so difficult for me to see him going through this rough patch. I have promised him a mommy/matthew "date" this weekend. He picks what we do. I am excited to see what we will do together. I hope it helps him through this.

Other than that...7 weeks (about) and counting until our little one is here. Our house isn't ready, but that's ok. We will make it work. That's what being a parent is about. Daily adjustment. Dealing with what comes our way. It's great and rewarding!

It's cold outside and I am so ready for spring already. Ha Ha! It's going to be a VERY long winter for me I guess.

Waiting for the day when I will be able to scrap again. Maybe in January for a day or two with the gals!

Thank you...

We would like to honor those who have defended our country in the war. Previous and current battles alike. THANK YOU! For without you, we would not have the freedom we have today.

Wii mania has hit our house!

Matthew and Tyler have been saving money up for a Wii. It started with the first deposit into the "Wii cup" on Matthew's birthday. 6 teeth and extra money along the way later, we have a Wii! The boys were gone over at grandma's house and Joe set it up last night. Joe and I played a couple of games of bowling because we knew once the boys started playing it would be rare that we would get to play eachother! :) I can see how playing it can become addicting though.

The boys came home today and said, "what are the Wii controllers for?" Then they looked up and saw the console on the shelf. They both started to scream from excitement. They are upstairs playing baseball now. Wii mania is in the Weierke household...Look out!

First off, yes I will admit I am happy with the results of the election. I know some of our readers may not agree, but I am ready to see what our new president can do for us.

Second, life throws us curve balls almost on a daily basis. Simply amazing to me what life can bring.

Happy scrapping! I know I miss it and I think it's what I really need right now. Some therapy! :)

a new Adventure

Just wanted to say good luck to our friend Linda! She has made the move to Arkansas and will be starting a new job soon. Here's to new adventures! We can't wait to see you in a couple of months.

Such great people we meet while being involved in this art of scrapping. Thank you to all of our friends always!

Halloween Pics

We had great fun on Halloween. There were lots of screams (of fun) and good food. Trick or treating was fun with all of the kiddos. The older kids enjoyed running ahead to the doors and the little ones literally "fell" behind at times. I don't know about the other adults that were with, but I was tired upon returning back to my house! :)

My camera was being fussy so I didn't get as many photos of the night as I wanted to. The one of all of the kids by the garage is my favorite.
