20 Weeks

It's early on Saturday morning and I am having the hardest time sleeping. Last weekend I woke up at 5:30 on Saturday and 6:00 on Sunday. I think because I have a lot on my mind with the move it is affecting my sleep. And the fact that I can't sleep on my right side because my ear falls asleep and when I wake up it kills!! Or the fact that I can't sleep on my tummy because someone else is sleeping there. :) I don't know.

Today we are finishing up packing the apartment. We leave out of here this Friday around 5 am. This last week here in Tennessee will be pretty busy between Dr. visits, last minute packing, picking up records from our Dr.'s here and so much more. I am a definite list maker. I've had one going for two weeks now. Some things get crossed off and more added but I don't think anything will be forgotten.

I just wanted to quickly update on where we were and what we are up to. I am 20 weeks pregnant now and if you aren't friends with me on facebook then you don't know that we found out that we are having a GIRL!!!! We are so excited around here! I haven't gone a bought anything yet but I have been SO tempted! :) Jared took a picture of me yesterday so I could post here. Not the greatest pic but at least you can see my belly.

Last week we went and had dinner with our friends Jeff, Elizabeth, Peggy and Ian. We had so much fun hanging and letting the kids all run around. We took some pics and I said I wouldn't use them anywhere but I lied. I just love these girls and am gonna miss them both so much.

It has been a great year here in Tennessee. I am looking forward to moving back to Florida to be close to our family and friends but will really miss it here. It is a beautiful place to live and raise a family and who knows we may be back. :)

Where the Wild Things Are

The boys love going to the movies together so today after church they went to see "Where the Wild Things Are". Andon loved it and as soon as they got home he asked Daddy to make him a crown like Max's.

Trying it on for size.

He loves it and hasn't taken it off yet. :)

I got a comment on my last post about giving a recap of all that is going on here. I absolutely will! Just give me a day or so and I will catch you all up to speed on our crazy lives and post some pics of this belly of mine. :)

Andon turned 6 today!

At 8:15 a.m. 6 years ago today my sweet little Andon Chase came into this world. I can't believe he is 6 years old!! I was talking to my Dad tonight and he said it feels like we were just at the hospital. I have loved and am thankful for every up and down of the last 6 years with this sweet boy!

We don't really have many birthday traditions around here yet but this year we started a few. Since he was born in the morning we thought it would be so fun to do his cake in the morning. He LOVED that idea as well! If you know Andon you know that he has a major sweet tooth! :) Here are some fun pics of our morning.

After breakfast Jared headed to work and Andon and I headed out to the trails. We have these great walking trails near our house with a fun playground. The weather was just beautiful today, high 60's, sunny and lightly breezy. We had so much fun we were gone for a couple of hours and didn't even realize it. Then we came home and got showered and went to lunch with our friends Elizabeth, Lukas and Avery. Thanks again for lunch E! After lunch we came home and relaxed until Daddy got home from work. Another tradition we want to do is let the birthday person pick where they want to go for dinner. So we let him decide and he chose.... McDonald's. Not my first choice but not my birthday. :) We had fun playing in the playground and meeting new friends there. There was this little girl that was following Andon around the whole time he was trying to play. So Jared told him to introduce himself and he did. Once he did that the flood gates opened and she told him all about herself. When it was time to go Andon said goodbye to Anna and she put her hands over her face and said NOOOO, I don't want him to go!! It was so cute! I told him he had a girlfriend and he just rolled his eyes at me. :) We had such a fun and relaxing day celebrating our boy!!

I think this weekend we may go to Dollywood in Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg. There are a few things we still want to do here in Tennessee before moving back to Florida. Oh yeah have I not mentioned that yet? We are moving back in a couple of weeks! More on that later. :)
