I really should make about 5 or 6 different blog posts in order to do these justice, but with a cranky newborn, it's just not possible. So bear with me as I give you a whirl-wind tour of the past month. :)
Allison went on a wonderful mission to Nicaragua at the beginning of this month. She was there for 9 days and it really helped her to see where she would like to be. She's changed her focus to missions and will be hopefully going to a local Bible college in the fall. She'd like to major in missions and this college really seems like a good fit. We are praying that the college accepts her and maybe gives her some financial aid. It's a very affordable college, so some aid would allow her to go without debt.
Easter was really nice. The littles went to church with Daddy and then we all went to dinner at Grandma G's house. The kids looked so cute in their finery...
Isaac wouldn't cooperate, so no photo of him.lol
For Jon's birthday, my Dad took him and my brother to Universal. They had a blast! They stayed on location and had fast passes for all the rides. I heard that they rode every ride at least 5 times.lol
For my nephew's spring break, my sister and he came down and visited a couple of colleges. He's going to Nova on a swimming scholarship and is very excited. It was SO nice to see my sister and Nicolas. They live in Virginia and we don't see them too often.
(My sister, Dana, with Sophia and David.)
Just because having a baby isn't enough for me, I decided to remodel a bedroom. lol My very patient and very understanding hubby primed the room for me with three little helpers. I can't believe that he let them help...lol I'd have kicked them out in 5 minutes.lol
I did the regular painting and finished the room on Friday...
(and no, I didn't let the littles help.lol)
We decided David needs his own room. He's a light sleeper and is keeping us awake. He's already sleeping about 4-5 hours each night and we think he'd sleep a little longer if we weren't waking him up. We'll see. :)
Speaking of David, he's now 6 weeks old! I can't believe how fast time is going by. He's a really sweetie, but really gassy right now. I can't wait until that passes.lol
He spends a lot of time, just hanging...literally...lol
Sophia is such a cutie.lol She loves to have her picture taken and usually says, "Let's try that again." so that we'll take more of her.lol
(This is take 42...)
With Allison's graduation looming, she has had many neat things to participate in. She attended her first prom, a Regency ball. She waited until Friday to actually MAKE her gown. It's absolutely beautiful and so was she on Saturday...
She had such a great time at the ball. She said that she danced every single dance.lol
My mom did her hair, but she made the whole dress herself. It was very tricky too. The instructions were difficult to understand AND we changed the design a few times too.lol This was the very first really big thing that she ever made. I think that she did a great job.
Well, I guess that's it for now. King David has awoken and I've used up all my spare time. Thankfully, I've gotten down the memories.
