Rain Rain Go away!

Ughh! Another Raining day here in South Jersey! I feel like it's been raining or gloomy forever now, even though we did have a nice sunny cool day on Saturday but since then it's been Overcast or raining since! Our lawn is in desperate need for a cut but with this weather Jayson can't get out there! But it will get done, Maybe the sun will grace us with it's presence this weekend! We are praying it does!
I told the kids that today would be a "movie" day! We would lay low and just hang out in our comfy cloths and watch movies and have a Nice quite day! We have been quite on the busy side all week and I think it's time for a day just to hang low and catch up on a few chores that need to be attended to and some laundry and relax!!!!! We had such a busy day yesterday I didn't get a chance to wash out sheets and stuff so I need to do that today amongst a ton of other things!!
I've been working on our summer schedule somewhat and can't wait to get it more filled up with some fun stuff, We have one mini-trip planned the weekend of Aug. 8th to go up to a cabin with Jayson's parents and his sisters and their families to Benton Pa. We usually go camping up there in the fall but I think we are heading to Lancaster this year in the fall instead! Jayson's parents gave all of us for Christmas a gift Certificate to Lancaster to stay at Willow Valley for the weekend! But we LOVE being outside and LOVE spending time with family so it's the best of both worlds for us!
Other than that the week days are filled with trips to the Cove, which is a little beach here in Mays landing right on Lake Lenape which is great for the kids and I! I plan to spend most of the mornings I can there with the kids and since its so close we will have out lunch there come home in time for nap/rest time! I figured it's an inexpensive way for the kids to have fun and enjoy the summer! Even though we live close to the Jersey Shore I refuse to drive the 25 minutes to the beach everyday! I know that sounds funny especially to those who would love to be able only to drive that short distance! i grew up in a tiny town in Central/North Jersey called Ocean Grove, It's a very small town only 1 square mile and we always lived so close to the beach the longest walk would be 10 minutes! So I think it's just silly to drive anything more than 5 minutes! Haha I feel silly even saying that!
I am trying to think of fun ways to celebrate Bryson's 2nd birthday! I can't believe he will be 2! Our little man just LOVES Monkey's so I am thinking of going with that theme of some sort! But with his Birthday being on July 4th it not only makes it hard but also a little tricky to plan! It's so funny that he loves Monkey's so much because ever since he was born Jayce and I have always called him our little Monkey! I think this year we have it on a little bit of a smaller side b/c last year we had a blast but we did a whole BBQ! I've been keeping my eye out on some things I love that are Monkey themed on Oriental Trading! They have the greatest things and so inexpensive!
Well while my kiddies are watching "Super Why" I think I am going to go start some laundry and get a head of the things I have on my list for today!! Oh my list! I just love them!! I always said I wouldn't be like my Mother but I guess I ended up a lot more like her than I would like to admit! HaHa, Truth be told though I'm glad I am getting to be a little more like her she's an awesome women and is so incredibly organized it gives me such hope!
Praying for you all and praying you all enjoying the sunshine where ever you maybe!!!
Blessings,
Stacey

Dance Recital and some other stuff



I don't know why I didnt post a few pictures up from my Mady-girls dance recital, but I guess life just gets in the way! She did excellent! This was her 2nd year of dance and she just absolutly Loves it!! Enjoy! I don't know why Blogger put them up first but it works! I can't believe how big my little ones are getting and before we know it we will have a 3rd on the way! Time really does fly by and God is so good to us! We are so amazed but the things he has done in our lives and the things he is doing day by day! We are so very excited to add to our family and can't wait to find out if the kids will be getting a little brother or sister!! Madyson wants a sister but says "Whatever God wants is fine by us right Mommy?" Which just cracks me up because I always say to the kids The Lord knows whats best for our family!

We have still been really busy re-arrangig around the house a bit but there is still so much to do good thing Im only 13 weeks! Oh I just trash picked the best find! I'll post more pic's up later of before and after! It's such a neat peace I dont know quite where I'll put it but it's a neat little piece! I think I'll head to the hard ware store tomorrow for some sand paper and a bottle of spray paint! I'll leave the a mystery so it's a mystery to us too!!

I can't wait to get the summer started! I've been busy trying to plan out our days between "the Cove" and play dates and boardwalk nights and such!! Maybe even alittle camping trip or a little get away! We shall see!!! We do wanna have the family and friends over for a "Smore Night" but thats to be plannes also!

Enjoy the weekend! I know we sure will!!! Have a blessed night and enjoy the family!!
Blessings!

Pregnancy Pimples!

First of if most of you haven't heard, Jayson and I are expecting Baby #3 in Dec so that puts me at 11 weeks now! But this is my 1st pregnancy where I can say I am breaking out so bad! My face has all these little pimples on them and they are driving me insane!! I haven't changed my routine as far as washing or anything although maybe I should or is it time to try Pro-Active? I used it in high school and it worked great I have never been one who say I suffered terribly with acne but as a women , don't all of us dislike having pimples?? This is driving me nuts!! Since I already have 1 daughter and 1 son, I have NO clue what this baby is and so far no clues point either direction! I guess it's true what they say about EVERY pregnancy being so incredibly different! I hope I didn't gross anyone out but this is just on my mind !!

On a lighter and less gross note, We have been doing some serious re-arraigning! I feel like it's been forever since I even last posted! But we defiantly have moved our bedroom downstairs. We were able to give away a ton of toys via Free-cycle! Have anyone used it?!? Its a yahoo group and they are pretty local in every area but its a great thing, you post what you would like to get rid off of what you are in need of or would like, and people get back to you and they come to your house to pick it up and u just leave it outside on your porch or grass or whatever it's great! Then when you receive something you do the same thing! It's great! Oh I recently posted that Jayson and I would like a contained Fire pit thing or a chiminea , and if anyone is getting rid of them we would glady come and pick it up , well 2 days later someone emailed me and said they had one and we scored this awesome contained fire pit!! It's fabulous! So far we have enjoyed some nice family time out in the back yard enjoying it!! A friend of ours who I do hair for , have older children now and had a wooden swing set and offered it to us and they graciously gave it to us! How awesome is that? Isn't so amazing and cool to see god provide not only our needs but our wants as well?? I'm so thankful for all of our many blessings!

Since it's a nice rainy day out I am hoping to do some serious cleaning out of our back room today! Well I'm hoping but we will see I 've been dying to get back there and do some serious over-hallen but who knows what the kids will let me do it or not! Here's hopin'!
