We had such an awesome day today! Will come back and add some pictures tomorrow but too pooped to do so at the moment. We took the boys to ride the train, complete with robbers and all. They had a blast and we will be doing that again for sure. It is about a 2 hour train ride and they loved every minute of it. Cameron has talked about it all afternoon and even as he was going to bed. I am sure he will be talking about it for days. :) Noah couldn't have been happier than when that train started to pull out of the station. It was sheer joy on his face and in his eyes. So much fun!

And wouldn't you know it. My point and shoot camera dies yesterday. My DSLR died today. I was just beside myself. Still not sure what is wrong with either but I am not the proud owner of a new point and shoot. So will be sporting pictures with it for a while until I can get my DSLR to the manufacturer. Ugh! So very disappointed as that camera is only like a year old! But at least I did get to capture some pictures from the train ride so for that I am thankful!

Quick update

Haven't scrapped in what feels like ages. Noah is having some sleeping troubles so we are in week 3 of that. Crazy. He won't nap. When he does nap he won't sleep at night. So I have to figure out what that balance is. Hoping with all the summer fun outside he will just be exhausted and not fight it any longer. Last night he laid in bed a while and said "no sleep" over and over again. I finally just brought him to our room, put him in the pack-n-play and went to sleep myself. Who knows what time he actually fell asleep. I got up at 2:00 am and put him back in his bed. Whew.

Today was our last day of "school." I am actually looking forward to being able to get out and do more things with other people. The boys need to make some real friends now and I need to be around other moms again. I feel like I have been held up in the house all winter or doing very little with other people. About time to change that!

Surgery is scheduled for May 29th. So glad to have a date and that it isn't too far away.

Rainy day thoughts

Finding it a little hard to keep up with the blog these days. But am doing my best. I have been spending less and less time on the computer. Need to get active and the weather has been so nice we have got to spend so much time outside. Been nice. I even got to spend the day Sunday working in the yard and buying plants and such. It was a very enjoyable Mother's Day. Hard to believe it was my 3rd. They are growing way too fast!

Lots of fun ideas swirling around in my head. I have started a journal in hopes of capturing some of them so that when I do have the time I can sit down and go through it to see what is next. I am trying very hard to keep a list and prioritize. I used to be such a list person and lived by my list. Now I just can't seem to get in a good groove. Trying different ways and hoping this newest one will start to work. I had read that you should only have 6 things on your to do list each day. So I am keeping 2 lists now. One that is an ongoing list of things that need to be done and another is my daily 6 things I want to get done. In theory each night you make your 6 things and then prioritize in order from 1 to 6 of importance. I can't say I get all 6 things done each day but I am working on it. I usually get other stuff done that isn't on the list but at least I feel I am getting something done each day once again! For a while there it was craziness in my house. Now we are about to turn it all upside down again with me being out of commission a few days. Ugh! But hey, hopefully by then I will have a good system again and it will just keep on going without a hitch. I really want to get to decorating the house and regular cleaning seems to take priority most of the time.

The boy's room is in much need of updating now that I know what I want to do. Just have to figure out if we are going to put them in separate rooms or not. Been pondering this for some time now. May have to do it so that they both get some sleep. I am having one that isn't wanting to nap and keeping the other awake. Although he slept through it yesterday. Hoping it is just the ear infection but the started before the ear infection. :(

Peace and understanding

As I drifted off to sleep the other night I was praying, just as I always do when I am going to sleep each night. I have struggled for a very long time with organized religion. I know, I know, that sounds very strange. I had some bad experiences over the years that made me question some people's intentions when it came to churches. I have always told myself there are those that are bad out there and prey upon unsuspecting people. People willing to give of themselves. It has always made me sad and often question a lot of people's intentions.

But anyway, had to fill you in on that because what I am about to tell you won't make sense. Oh, let me back up for another minute. The other thing I have struggled with is the whole it takes a village to raise a child thing. After having twins I now understand the true meaning of that saying.

And one last thing I will say is I have truly missed having a church home. We just haven't tried out very many in the new area we live in and I am hoping we can change that in the near future.

But anyway, as I was saying. The other night as I was drifting off to sleep and praying, I actually felt like God answered those two questions for me. I felt like he was telling me that a church home is the village I was searching for. Does that sound strange? I have always had a very strong faith, whether I attend a church on a regular basis or not. He has carried me through many a thing in my life and I know will continue to do so. It all just made so much sense to me and brought so much comfort. I know we will find one here. I have no doubt about it. I just have felt so at home in this new place almost from the first day we came to search for houses just a little over a year ago.

Just a typical day...

Noah has an ear infection. Makes so much make sense from this week with him. Hoping it goes away quickly. It wasn't a bad one yet so hopefully it won't end up that way. We missed music class but it was probably a good thing. They have just been so out of sorts again. I am beginning to feel like I say that a lot these last few months. Ugh! Can't they come with manuals?

Both of the boys have gotten into pulling their shirts up. Mainly for "raspberries." But I walked up the stairs this afternoon to see what my quiet little guys were up to and Cameron was in the middle of my bed on his knees holding his shirt up and just looking around. Man I wish I had brought the camera! Noah walked around tonight while we were getting ready for bed and kept pulling his up. Just makes me laugh. I did manage to kind of capture that one on film.

I got the results back and they tell me it isn't cancer but they still want to remove the thing. Kind of had me freaked out last night but I'm okay with it today after talking to the doctor (of course while there for Noah's ears). Just so much better to talk about those kinds of things in person rather than over the phone I guess for me. Still not crazy about having the surgery but we will survive and if they say it is what needs to be done then I have faith it is the right thing. Just sad I won't be able to pick my little guys up for a few days after.

I found these very cool shoes and they arrived this last week. I haven't worn them yet since it has been on the chilly side but do plan on it soon. I normally don't like to wear shoes without socks but they were very comfortable when I put them on and walked around the house in them. And it's a great cause so go and check them out! They even have some for little ones and men! I love that they donate a pair for each that you buy to a child in need. They were sold out of the ones I really wanted so may have to get another pair when they get them back in stock. These will be the perfect summer shoes!

All went well on Monday. Still no results but praying they have them today. They said it usually takes about 2 days so I will call this afternoon if they haven't called me. She did tell me I could. ;)
