Is it March ALREADY?!?
How did this happen?
I don't even know where to begin because our life changes too fast.

We will start with the oldest...Ted!
He is plugging away at work, and is looking forward to the Scout over-nighter this weekend. He is having fun learning and creating with Adobe Creative/Master Suite and I almost never have the computer to myself
when he is home.

I am in the process of getting sick. Usually I can mentally tell myself not too, but this is a keeper. Sore throat, pounding head, and feeling achy...sigh.
I also get to give a talk in church about HAPPINESS. I have had so many thoughts and impressions about this that you would think that it was already done. It's not. Hopefully I won't bore the congregation.
Our biggest news recently is that our landlords decided that they want to move back to Utah, so that means ANOTHER move in May...sigh! I have to believe that the Lord knows where we are supposed to be and He will let us know pretty soon. I also have to believe that He thinks that we are capable of moving multiple times so we can be helpful to others wherever we end up. Does that make sense? It does to me-so I'm keeping it in this post.

McKay is busy being an active 11 yr old. He is either playing football or basketball outside in the cold. He loves to read! This has been a joy to watch as a mother. I REALLY love to read, and hoped that my kids would be the same way. He babysits for me when I teach piano, and I pay him in books. It works for us. I recently registered him for junior high and felt strangely melancholy about the whole affair. As much as I want him to grow up, I am still
extremely grateful for his innocence.
Kayte is turning 9 this month and is super excited to have a party. She is planning one heck of a party and I'm lucky if I can catch all the details. She is a whirlwind of singing, dancing, and talking. Such.a.girl. She loves playing with friends and we are entering the girl "catty-ness" stage. I hate this stage! I remember it well. Can't girls just get along? There always has to be one queen bee that determines if you are cool or not, and this changes on a daily basis. My hope is to instill a great sense of self so she can be happy with who she is.

Noah. Every time I get to his turn I don't even know what to say or where to start. I'm learning how to handle his little sassy self. He seriously needs anger management, and I am NOT the one to help him with that. I don't know where he gets it-lol! He marches to the beat of another drum then the rest of us. But let me tell you-he gives the best hugs and snuggles! He sure is a thinker. He told me the other day that he doesn't understand why I need to change. He was referring to my hcg diet. He told me I was beautiful the way I was. How sweet is that! That made my day!

Eden is battling a double ear infection at the moment and I can hardly put her down without massive tears and tantrums. You think that this sweet,teeny, tiny girl can't throw a tantrum-you are wrong! She actually throws herself on the kitchen floor and lays down. It is pretty comical-sometimes! She can say cracker and fish. I figure she doesn't say much because she has 3 older siblings catering to her every need and desire. If she wants something she will come up to you and grab your fingers with her tiny hand and pull you to where she wants to go. So so cute! She also jabbers up a storm and likes to dance. She can swing her hips and it is too funny to watch. She also survived her first week in nursery AND loved it! It is hard to believe she is 18 months! WHAAAA!
Okay! Done!
