Weekly Wrap Up!

We have made it through 12 weeks of school so far. I was feeling a lot better this week, so we got much more done. We are continuing to just plug away at our work, and the kids are doing great. Buster had a bit of an attitude problem on Monday, but having to skip skate church really set him right. We have one more week of school and then we are taking two weeks off to welcome baby number 4.
Sweetpea got to ride her birthday bike for the first time this week. We even braved the rain just so she could.

The kids were all spinning around poles. They had gotten a little couped up with all the rain, so it was nice to take them to the park twice this week.

Sweetpea wrote her name all by herself for the first time.

Then she wanted to try writing all of our names. Here is how she wrote mommy.

She turned 4 today, so we had a tea party with cupcakes. She wanted hot chocolate though.

Happy Birthday! We had her party last weekend.

We finally got around to our pumpkins.

Sweetpea's 4th b-day party!

Our Sweetpea is turning 4 on the 31st, but we had her party yesterday. I wanted to have it early, because I will be 37 weeks on her birthday. She wanted a Cinderella party, so that's what we did.
Here is her cake. My husband and I had a lot of fun making this one.

Weekly Wrap Up!

I had a little bit of a rough week. My cholestasis came back last weekend. We thought that I had dodged it this pregnancy, but I guess not. I spent the first few days of the week feeling crummy and soar. We did do school, but mostly the basics. Apparently we did a lot of painting though, because I have a bunch of pictures of that. Also I had an ultrasound last Tuesday, and the babies est. weight was 6lbs 9oz. I will most likely be induced on Nov. 8Th. On Friday we went to the pumpkin/mud patch, but I didn't take any pictures. Sunday we had Sweetpea's 4Th birthday party, and I will post pics of that in a separate post.
Sweetpea had the idea of doing symmetric paintings, so we did a bunch. The kids painted on one side and then folded it over. Here are some of their results.

We also painted pumpkins.

Sweetpea read some books to Buttercup. She sat and listened for like 20 minutes. Sweetpea loves reading books that she has memorized.
