Pregnant AND Homeless :)

Hi family and friends! Just a quick update -- we ARE still alive! I apologize for being a lame blogger lately, but let's be honest -- we have been CRAZY!!! The Parade of Homes is almost over (whew!) and we have been bouncing from house to house living with different family members as all of our furniture is currently at the Parade Home. (Tried the air mattress at our house and wasn't loving it! :)) Getting the house ready for the parade was definitely an adventure, but I am SO happy it is over with! Hopefully you all had a chance to see it - I think all of our hard work and team work paid off! I love it... I feel overwhelmed with gratitude for everyone that helped us during our crazy week - Lisannie and Mom were UNBELIEVEABLE and Kate totally took my kids overnight! BIG deal no matter what, but she gets extra points because she has three of her own -- Five kids under Five? She deserves a medal! :)Trish and Jesse full on picked up giant rugs and art and drove in the rain to deliver them! Who does that? There are too many people to name, but I have Thank Yous coming for all of my amazing helpers. Friends and family dropped everything to rescue me and help - From the bottom of my heart -- THANK YOU!
The kids are doing great in "vacation mode" - it is hard to keep a schedule when you aren't at your own home and they don't have their own space. I am so glad that it is summer and that we have realitively no strict timelines to deal with just yet. Things feel totally wild, but no complaints - we have so much to be grateful for.
More importantly, we have had a lot happening with my sweet sister-in-law Shelby, who is four weeks ahead of me pregnant. She started leaking amniotic fluid and is on bedrest. You can read all about her and our nephew Baby Boston at their blog -- . Their little family is amazing and we are praying for them everyday! Boston is a miracle in the making and we have so much faith that he will make it here!
Thank you for all of your love and support. I promise that we will be up and going again soon... OR if not soon - as soon as I can! Loves to all... xxoo
