This weeks updates

Since I didn't post pictures of Caleb's last meet, I will post them now. Presley was wanting her picture taken also, so Kailei took the picture of her.

We have put up many sheets of drywall at Bob and Sandi's house (my in-laws) and so I figured I should put some pictures up for those of you keeping track of that. We haven't been working at our house but it is fun seeing the change that Bob and Sandi's house is taking. Also, the girls walls look a lot better than the boys walls. I think because Sandi and I work really well together, there is no yelling involved.

The picture with Prelsey and Kailei is for Uncle Brandon. He is a firefighter in LA and he sent all the kids shirts for Christmas. No one else wanted to wear their shirts so I took this picture for Brandon.

I have to confess something to all my Facebook friends. Thanks to my good friend, Buffie, I am now on facebook and I am having a great time getting reconnected with old friends from High School and my friends that I have right now. I don't have a lot of time to leave comments but it is fun to see how so many people have changed and how so many people look just the same. I am thankful for all my wonderful friends that truly care about me and how I am doing in my busy life, but you all keep me sane. Also, I have the best husband in the whole world and I am so thankful for him and all he does to provide for our family and for giving me the opportunity to stay home with our children.

Another Busy Weekend

Caleb had another gymnastics meet on Saturday. He did very well, again. This time he placed 4th overall, with 2 seconds and 3 third places. It was a LONG meet with all the kids there. Hard to watch Caleb and try and keep Presley off the mats and the p-bars. But, it is great family fun and we all love watching Caleb compete. He is so amazing at gymnastics.
Today was another busy day, I had a few ladies over to make a flip scrapbook. While they were making their books, I was using my cricut to cut out letters and shapes to put on the bulletin board at gymnastics. I have been given a job at the gym keeping the bulletin board decorated each month and making sure to include any specials that the gym is having. It is right up my alley. Also, I am in charge of getting the staff pictures put up so that parents can get to know them a little better. I am having a harder time with that then I thought I would. My creative brain is working away though.
Then, because I didn't have enough to do today, I decided to gut my closet. We had one very long hanging wood dowel that was sagging tremendously and I really wasn't using it to hang clothes on. On top of that was a very sad VERY long shelf that I ripped off the wall and took out of my closet. If I have time this week, I will take a picture of the final project. It isn't finished but it will do for now.
So, as I sit here at 11:40pm in my very quiet house, sitting next to a very warm fire (I love having a fireplace), I realize I have to get up at 7am to get the kids ready for school and then head out to our house to help Bob and Sandi put up some more drywall in their house.

Busy Weekend

I am glad this weekend is over. We had a gymnastics meet at the gym our kids go to and I was volunteered to be in charge of the admissions table and the decorations. I think because it was the ALOHA meet, they thought I would be good with decorations. Started setting up on Friday afternoon, then worked at the gym for the optional girls meet Friday night, got home at 10pm. Then Saturday, Joe refed a JV wrestling match all day and so I spent most of the time at the gym helping out with the girls meet. Thank goodness I have a 12 year old that is great with the girls, he stayed with them most of Saturday, when I wasn't home checking on them or getting them food. Then today we went to church and I got to help my mother in law with the sunbeams class, let me tell you, I thought having 5 kids was hard. Those sunbeams are out of control and some of them need to get more discipline at home. I feel sorry for my in laws. I am grateful for my calling as Enrichment Leader. Caleb had his meet tonight and he did GREAT. He took 3rd overall in his age group of 9-10 year olds. I am thankful for wonderful in-laws who watched the girls after church so we could watch Caleb without chasing the girls around the gym.

It is finally time

So I have had enough people wanting me to start blogging and I have finally given in. I really don't have the time but I figure if I can blog once a week on Sunday afternoon, since we have church at 9am (YEAH!), that should be enough for everyone to follow the Edwards Family.
