I Can't Wait
by Sara Groves and Don Chaffer
When you reach the proper age
I will teach you to read and you can turn the pages
How to dress and tie your shoes
Your one plus ones, and your two times two's
And you'll teach me
Of hearts and dreams
And all the most important things
And all that i have lost along the way
And I can't wait
As you grow, I'll show you things
How to ride your bike and kick your legs out on the swings
To fold your hands and bow your head
How to say your prayers before you go to bed
And you'll teach me
Of hearts and dreams
And all the most important things
And all that I have lost along the way
And I can't wait
How do you sleep so peacefully?
How do you trust unflinchingly?
How do you love so faithfully?
How do you dance so joyfully?
Oh you'll teach me
Of hearts and dreams
And all the most important (essential) things
And all that i have lost along the way
And I can'tNo I can'tCome teach me
Of love and dreams
And all the most essential thing
And all that I have lost along the way
Cause I can't wait


the week is almost over.........

labor day is already here..... yikes! this will be the last big weekend of all of the weekenders here in DL. It is amazing how many boats will come of the lake now and the locals will come back out to play!!!!
Getting some cleaning done in the scraproom--which is totally needed and I am so excited to the rooms moved around in the house for our new addition! We got lots of work ahead of us!!! We always do...
Got some fun pages done of my beautiful niece J. With all the geat pictures her mom takes of her I get some really fun pages.... thanks mandy for letting me use your pictures and of course your beautiful daughter as my inspiration for my pages!


monday monday monday.
as pathetic as it may sound i am so excited for the HILLS tonite! i am maybe a bit obsessed with the show. and soon all the good shows will start again. CSI, CRIMINAL MINDS, LAW & ORDER SUV.. gossip girl.....i could go on and on.
getting my scraproom all cleaned up and out b/c soon when i am @ scrap camp drew is moving it to its new room downstairs. i think moving will be a good idea for this room..i will get rid of a bunch of stuff i did not even know i even had and there just is nothing like a new space! hopefully i can get it painted b/f the move.



this jacked rocked! go see for yourself on scrapjacked. her work rocks and it was so fun to do my version.
thanks ladies and bettie for this awesome jack!


i love willy wonka

there have not been many things i have craved so far through this pregnancy but of course the one thing i am craving all the time is so hard to find anywhere! willy wonka grape laffy taffy......probably not the best for me but i sure do love them! i have found one gas station about 30 miles away and one grocery store in SD with them!!! i tried to get away with the small bars or the long string ones.... but nothing compares to the real thing!!!
i obviously do not have much to talk about....
sitting here watching the Olympics..i love gymnastics-- not a huge fan of these 13 year old Chinese girls though! sorry but if you are pretty much owned by the government of course they will lie about your age! ridiculous!!!!!


172 days to go.....

it wont be long b/f we finally know if this little one is a boy or girl! i think drew and i are the only ones that think it is a boy. i have not real reason but that very predicatable necklace test.. it has told me for years that i will have boy boy girl.........and who would not trust that?!?!?! well obviously no one else does b/c everyone seems to think that there is a baby girl in there!! well whatever we find out we are so EXCITED!!!! i am anxious to get working on the room... and get the house in order! and my dad is making the crib. he has made one for my sister and brother too.... they are so beautiful can not wait to see it!!! better get working on it dad!! :)
got some fun pictures from this past weekend to post later.... need to get them uplaoded!
got to spend lots of time with my mom @ the cabin. she was watching the birdwell kids.... so i got to spend some time with all of them. then friday drew and i got to take j for an overnight. we took her out for pizza and then ice cream and then of course i kept her up till midnight.... oops... and we then kicked drew out of bed and had a real sleepover. she was such a sport and even went to a jewelry party with me in the morning b/f we finally headed back to the cabin. one of my favorite things about j is that she is very stylish and is very interested in clothes and what she is wearing. so b/f we are getting in bed she tells me we need to get her clothes out for saturday and lay them out. so we did just that. found her dress, underwear, headband, clip and all and layed them out on the floor in an orderly fashion. i wish i could be so orderly.
be back later


with wefest bring over....summer is coming to an end....and sadly so has drews cut off john deere shirt! back to the closet it goes! the third day of wefest he thought it would be a great idea to cut the sleeves of this shirt and try to pull it off! thank goodness no one there would even notice.. becasue half of the people are wearing no more that permenent marker on their bodies.... so really he won best dressed! anway it (summer) has flown by.... like it always does.
this years wefest was great! bring a big country fan i was loving taylor swift and sugarland. they were the best by far i would say! of course kenny was good but i have seen him enough times where it is always the same! we had a good time with friends all weekend and even got to go tubing down the ottertail with my sister, rich and their friends!!
last night i got to spend some time with my mom and my niece and nephew j & j!! we had some much fun @ the cabin.... jayden is an expert in mancula...i could not believe i got beat by a 5 year old! the were loving the water.... it was a wee bit cold but we went in anywho. made sand castles. the are just my favorite kids ever!!! it is so fun to have them around this summer... and soon there will be a third! hope they will love their new baby brother and baby cousin barker! they will all be such good buddies!! :) i cant wait!
besides work... we have not been doing too much else!
we had a doctors appt yesterday and everything looks good..... the heartbeat by far is always the best part. it always bring tears to my eyes no matter how many times i have heard it! i still can not believe in less than 25 weeks we will be parents. we were sitting in the waiting room yesterday making lists..... boy oh boy do we need to get in gear. in a couple of weeks we will find out if we are going blue or pink and i will be in full force. drew is scared for that say to come for the sheer fact that he knows the buying will begin! :)
