So I am at work and all of my work is caught up. What to do now? I don't know so I thought that I would log in and post. I am looking forward to this weekend in getting to see all of my family when they come in for K.C.'s baptism. I really miss having mom around. In fact I miss talking to her since I haven't gotten to in a while and when I have they have been short converstations. I am hoping too to catch grandma at home and chat with her a bit today. I have tried the past couple of days to get a hold of her but she has been gone. Just looking forward to seeing everyone that I haven't seen since Christmas. I am really hoping that my brother comes since I haven't seen him since like Thanksgiving and I really didn't see him that much. I miss him a lot too. He is really coming around these days, or so I think. I don't think that he will need as big as a butt kicking as I think he does. I hope that things go his way here soon and for both him and mom and dad that he gets to move out of their house. I hope that he is getting smarter with his money and saving a little. I worry about him a lot expecially since last year. I know that things have changed a bit for him and that he has learned something but I still worry. He is my only brother and I love him. Only 29 more days till I leave on vacation to mom and dad's house and then to Florida with K.C., mom, my aunts, and grandma. Girls Only! Yeah! It will be nice to have a break from work since I have now worked my real hours 3 weeks in a row and it has been a long time since I have done that but the pay checks I get will be looking good. Well I would like to post to Walker family life before more work comes in the door (work that I am expecting to come in). So ya'll have a great day and look forward to hopefully posting tomorrow.

Wild Weekend

Yep it was another wild weekend at the Walker house. Friday night I ran out the the grocery store and then Chris and I baked chicken lasanga for friends of ours who are headed out to California from him to give his kidney to his one year old baby girl. Then on Saturday Chris and I got up with the kids got them ready and then headed to drop off the meals to our friends and then to Sams. Came home got the kids ready to spend the night at their respective places. Then Chris and I got to relax and watch a movie. After watching a movie we started dinner and then Chris took Ephriam over to his Uncle Matt and Aunt Heather's house. After Chris and I ate we dropped Kendra off at Grandma and Grandpa's house and headed to church to pick up our youth group kids to head to the Disciple, Family Force 5, Fireflight, and Decyfer Down. The concert was great but standing in the freezing rain for 45 minutes stunk really bad. You can see the pictures above. After we got home at 1 am we went to bed. The next morning we were up at 8:15 to get the kids. Matt and Heather had to be at church early so Ephriam needed to be picked up and since we were out we just picked up Kendra too. Then Ephriam and I went to Sunday School and Chris and Kendra met up with us in the Nursery at church. After working the nursery we came home ate lunch and then I laid down for a nap. Then off to Youth Group back home to get the kids ready for bed and then finally to bed. Next weekend won't be any slower since we will be having family in for Kendra's baptism. Oh well, I am looking forward to seeing our family.

Today was full of accomplishments... for me at least. We got Ephriam and Kendra's rooms all squared away. Kendra's dresser used to be completely empty but now it is so full that there isn't room for the rest of her clothes. We moved Ephriam's crib to help make things easier for him to transition into his big boy bed. We moved Kendra's room around to open things up a little bit more then what it is. She hasn't napped really well today since we moved her room around. I am hoping that sleeping there for a full night will help her with the adjustment. I have also done several loads of laundry and almost got the kitchen up to par. I am sure that tomorrow after church I will be able to do that before we go and celebrate Chris' grandma's birthday at his parents house. Then we are off to youth group. Hopefully then we are back to the regular grind with Chris going to work and the kids and I at home. It will be an adjustment for Ephriam for daddy to go back to the office but he will soon forget that he ever worked from home. We have also gotten a couple of inches of snow today and I am getting really sick of the cold weather. I am looking forward to our trip to Florida at the end of March. Hopefully we get some sunrays again here soon to lift my spirits again. So that is life in the fast lane here.

Who needs sleep?

Cause it seemed like I was never going to get it this week. I worked a full week and Chris worked from home so that kids were all mine this week. In a over a 48 hour time period I got 6 hours of sleep in naps. I got 2 two hour naps and 2 one hour naps. At least at work there was no lack of things to do to keep me awake. I got to go to bed early last night while Chris took care of bathing and feeding K.C. her cereal. I slept for 12 hours! It felt really good to get that much sleep. I am ready to take on the day! Today I am going to do laundry and get K.C. clothes put away in her empty dresser. I will hopefully be able to get the kitchen and living room back in order too. Hoping to get them picked up so that tomorrow after church I can sweep the living room up. So that is the game plan but we will see how far I can get. I think that K.C. is up and ready to eat so I am going to get her and feed her and then get breakfast myself. Hope that your weekend is as relaxing as mine.

Awesome Weekend

So I have been waiting for several weeks now for my parents to come in and it came and pasted in no time. I had a really great time with them though. Friday they didn't get in till like one in the morning so there wasn't a whole lot of visiting. Then on Saturday it was a really laid back day. Mom and I went out to lunch at Panera (I place that I don't get go to a lot) and then shopping for a new bathing suit for me for our trip to Florida. Now I just need to get a pair of crocks for Kendra and we will be all set for our trip. Then after we got back from lunch we just hung out at home. We were suppose to go to Meijer but I think that mom and dad got wore out playing with Ephriam and Kendra. They sure are a lot of work but I enjoy my moments with them. On Sunday we all got up and just hung out together. Mom and Dad ended up leaving around 11:30 to go back home. I am glad that they didn't stay later so that they had time to recover from their drive. It took them a lot longer to get back since they had to make more stops with Emma (their new puppy) and they did stop and eat. I was just nice to hang out with just them. Right now Kendra is in bed because she is sleepy only she is playing with her pacifiers deciding which one she wants. I mean it isn't like she has 6 of them in her bed or anything. What a habbit we are going to have to break. Well I need to lay down and get some rest because last night was rough for me. I hope that I can post more on that later.

I wish that these colds would hurry up and end. I am not feeling so hot. I did much better yesterday and I am trying to stay possitive today but it just isn't working. I am so tired from it I am hoping that my afternoon nap will help since I have both kids in their beds. The little princesses isn't sleeping she is actually playing with her aquariuam that Nana and Grandpaw gave her from Christmas but as long as she is happy it if fine with me. She is tired and is refusing to let it get the best of her. Have I mentioned that I am looking forward to mom and dad coming in tomorrow night? Well if I haven't let me mention it... I AM SO EXCITED ABOUT MOM AND DAD COMING IN FOR THE WEEKEND! Now that it has been posponed for 2 weeks I can't wait. We will be getting to see a lot of them in a short amount of time and that will be nice. Well I need to lay down because now I am starting to get a headache so that I can go into work tonight. Peace.

Getting Better

Things are getting better around here. K.C.'s teeth seem to be almost in (Thank God!) We got lots of snow last night and I got to stay home from work and that was really nice. Although I had to go in for my CPR today which was fine till I got there and found out that they sent an e-mail around saying that it started an hour later then what they usually do because of the weather of course they never made any phone calls and not everyone checks their work e-mail on a daily basis since most of us work 12 hour shift. Anyways I did get a lot of stuff done today. I got the living room all squared away and the kitchen too. Now hopefully tomorrow I can find the bedrooms under the piles of dirty clothes and the baskets of clean ones. Then I can rest on Friday! I am looking forward to Friday night because it is a big night for me. I am going to hang out and do some scrapbooking with the girls from our playgroup, then I will probably being hitting the Meijer store to pick somethings up and then I get to come home in great anticipation of my mom and dad coming in! I just can't wait. I know that I saw them for Christmas but it wasn't one on one time that I will get with them this weekend. Mom and I have plans to ditch the boys and go have coffee together which we haven't done in such a long time. It will be good for the both of us. We can too discuss what we are going to bring with us to on our Florida trip at the end of March beginning of April. Which I can't wait for. Well I need to go check my floor in the kitchen and see if it is dry. Hope to post tomorrow at the beginning of the kids naps but we will see what happens.

Sleepless Nights

Yes this week has been full of them. Not much sleep for Chris and I. The princess is cutting teeth and has been pretty much a nightmare about it. Last night she was up 5 times to eat or just because she was in pain. Maybe tonight with her being so tired we will get some sleep or not (as she is crying right now and it is almost 12:30 am.) Anyways other then that life is good. I am starting to get over the winter blues with thoughts of spring. Only a couple more months till opening day. I am also looking forward to K.C. and I trip to Florida. It will be a nice vacation for us. Well I should be getting to bed to get some sleep for the night.
