My in laws came to visit and help me with some things.  They decided to take my two littlest ones to their house for a few days to give me a chance to rest.  My three year old was very excited!  The one year old was so funny.  I got him all strapped into their car and he just had this look on his face of puzzlement!  As the backed out of the driveway, the three year old was waving goodbye and very excited and the little just had the same look on his face, almost like “Why are we leaving without my mommy?”  He’s been a little attached to me lately so it’s good that he went for a visit but the look on his face was priceless! 

Well, I have a little announcement too!  I’m having another baby in August!  I’m sure most of my family doesn’t know what to think at the thought of me with 6 kids!  :)  We’re happy about it though!  So, that’s my little news!

Here’s another template from the 365 set for you!  I really do plan on finishing the set.  That’s why I called this post “Only a few more days!” My designing mojo needs a boost!  Here’s the template:


Download here.

I’m using a new file download service so don’t be alarmed if you see something different. 

Thanks for the comments!

Congratulations on the impending arrival! Wow, 6 kids--I called it quits after 2, so I'm really impressed. Good luck, I hope everything goes well!

Thanks for the template!

Congrats Andrea! Who cares what anyone else thinks... if you want six, have six. I hope you're feeling well.

Thanks for the template! I've gotten a little behind on proj 365!

Steph said...

I'm so excited for you! I haven't told my family about my expected arrival just yet because I'm not sure how well it will be received so I really appreciated reading your post and the reminder that as long as we are excited that's all that really matters. I'm wishing you the best for your pregnancy. As always thanks for the wonderful template - I don't think I will ever ceased to be amazed at how much you are able to get done - without your templates I don't think I would get any scrapbooking done. Thanks again.

Congrats sweetie,
Your children will thank you when they are all grown to have many siblings to lean on. And you will be thankful to have so many children who just adore you and make your life full. I know I am grateful to have 11 siblings as I grow older, and Mamma and Papa are too. They will never have to be concerned of being well taken care of. All 12 of us were born in 11 years (mom had 3 sets of twins in four years and she was not yet 30 when the last set arrived) and they both survived it all!! lol
Blessings to you all!

Oh my goodness, Andrea! Congrats on the upcoming little one. You are an amazing woman! I know that I couldn't do what you do...

Jen said...

Congrats on the baby news. That is exciting news. I can't imagine having 6, but then I would have 6 girls and that is WAY too many hormones in one house to deal with. Four is pushing it. I hope you are feeling good. I am sure Matt and Emily will be so glad to hav a little cousin their babies age!

Erica said...

My Little Ironies

  • I just had to tell my daughter that there was little probability that she could do eighty chores in two hours and 10 minutes to earn a giant lot of pet shops on Ebay that she wants to earn before the auction closes. That's at two chores per dollar. :)
  • We are helping my father sell an old vehicle and what do we find in the glove unused 12 guage shotgun shell...that's my Dad!!
  • How does a three year old end up at church with no underwear on, especially when you dressed him and you know he had underwear on at one point during the morning?
  • The root of all toilet clogging evil is apparently a ball point pen and it's nearly impossible to dislodge one of those from the inside of a toilet.
  • You know you have to do some serious laundry when you actually consider wearing your 11 year old daughter's Hannah Montana shirt.
  • My 6 year old daughter got a comb stuck in her hair and we had to cut the comb into little bits to get it out of her hair.
  • My kids keep breaking the toilet seats! I guess I need a bulk package of those too!
  • Chocolate chips are not a food group.
  • My toilet seat says "Hailee" on it!
  • If there's work to be done, all of the kids need to use the bathroom or get a drink.
  • All two-year-olds think the baby swing is for them!
  • When you have 6 kids, carpet is your enemy!
  • You know you have a large family when your grocery receipt is 4 feet long.
  • The toilet is clogged and my husband found a plastic easter egg in the pipe.
  • My daughter just asked me if she can put chocolate sprinkles on here melted cheese sandwich (really???)
  • I burned up another hard drive on my PC! Can I buy a bulk package of those too?
  • Well actually, my sand pile is full of socks and silverware!
  • My sand pile is full of socks!
  • The key to my treadmill is missing again...can I just purchase a bulk package of them???
  • I fixed my daughter's glasses with JB Weld!
  • I have a pile of sand on my leather couch.
  • My daughter lost her glasses in the snow on the way home from school in January. Someone found them in March and turned them into the school office! Amazingly enough, the school remembered we lost them in January. Wow!
  • Just when I think he knows better, my 10 year old son plugs the bathroom sink and the emergency drain in the sink basin to soak his grow creature, turns on the water, and forgets about it until we notice water flooding out from under the bathroom door! And yes, he locked the door so no one would bother the grow creature!!
  • It's time for another worn out pair of the hubby's pants to disappear! Aren't kids suppose to be the only ones who are attached to clothing?
  • My 4 year old says she needs "peace and quite"!!!!!
  • My Husband says there's a perfectly good reason for the leatherman being in my dish drainer.
  • I have a leatherman (fancy pocket knife) in my dish drainer. I don't know why.
  • My kids are storing a tumble weed in my garage for the winter!
  • My 10 year old son informed me that people have only discovered about half of the world's caves (thank you BBC and planet earth!)
  • My baby's car seat is full of finely crushed graham crackers (?? Little babies don't eat graham crackers)!
  • My husband's shoes are filled with Mr. Potato Head parts!
  • My two year old thinks the new baby swing is for him! He can even climb in by himself and work all the controls. Boy, does he have a rude awakening coming!!
  • I have a giant mud hole in my back yard.
  • My vacuum is fully of plastic easter grass.
  • My kids are too full to finish their dinner, but they have plenty of room left for cake!
  • I have a giant laundry basket full of socks, and we can't find a single match!
  • Miscellaneous items found while cleaning out my kids' toy box include a flashlight, rocks (no suprise), a sea shell (we don't live by the sea), a drill bit, a stapler, and some tree bark!
  • My daughter's medical bills added up to about $18,000, but we got a free sippy cup and a ball signed by the Utah JAZZ Dancers!
  • I put safety locks on the tops of my outside doors to keep my three year old from escaping and she figured out how to open them with a broom in approximately five minutes.
  • I bought the EXPENSIVE vacuum this time only to find that my 3-year-old took it apart with a screwdriver!
  • I haven't showered for 3 days, but my house is clean!
  • I have 38 winter gloves of various sizes in my coat closet and none of them match.
  • We're out of peanut butter because my husband used the rest to catch a mouse in our garage!
  • Yes, my son won 1st place in the science fair at school, but he didn't turn in half of his assignments this term?
  • No matter how many toys my toddler got for Christmas, I still find him in the middle of my kitchen floor sitting in my crock pot!
