Summer time fun!

When did Jilly's eyes get sooo GREEN???


So I have had this "splash pad" in the box for over a year now. We live in Arizona where we can be in the water outside 90% of the year. Tonight I decided that it was time to break it out. Hana decided that she wanted to play in it with Jilly, so Greg took some pictures.

The ultrasound pictures from 05/06/2010. IT'S A BOY!!























Steaks!

Image
So I found some steaks in the freezer and decided that I wanted them for dinner. However, I was not too keen on the idea of going outside to grill in 108 degrees. So I decided to try and use the Showtime Rotisserie. We'll see how they turn out!!

Boy clothes and Discipline

So my friend Marykay had her baby last week. They had decided that they didn't want to know what they were having. They already had a boy and a girl and decided to have it be a surprise. Well, she had a girl - Victoria Madison. With that (and the fact that this is their last) she gave me all of the boys clothes that she has been saving since she had Dominic - who is 7. I received 2 large boxes, 3 regular bins, 1 extra large bin, and 2 garbage bags full of clothes. While I am EXTREMELY grateful that I will NEVER have to buy clothes again........what in the heck was I going to do with them all?????? So I went through them all and started organizing.

I went smallest to largest......

When I ended for the night I had gotten though 12 month. This is just 18 months and up.

After rummaging through the house for more bins...... I finally got everything organized. This is 24 months / 2T - 6/7. Whew!! What a job!!! Thanks Marykay!!!! AFTER -

So, every Friday morning we meet my friend Li…

Happy 2nd Birthday Jilly!!!

Image
I can't believe that it has been two years today since Miss Jileighan Greer made her grand entrance into this world. She has been a delight ever since. Whenever the day is a bit gloomy all you have to do is watch her for about five minutes and you will be smiling. She is an amazing little girl. She is soo smart and amazingly funny. I adore her and am soo blessed that I was chosen to be the one to raise and teach her. Happy Birthday my amazing Jilly Bean!!! I love you more than words can say!

So it has been awhile! :-)

It is now almost the end of May and my last post was the beginning of February......that doesn't bode well for my goal of improving my blogging!! Oh well....I'm here again anyway!

What has happened in the last couple of months?????? Actually a few BIG things...

1) We found out we are having a BOY!! Yeah! This is very exciting news for two reasons... first, I have always known that I had a "Baby Jack" I was waiting for. Now I don't have to wait too much longer to meet him. Second, this is the first grand SON to carry on the WOOLF name. That would explain why when I showed up to Joel's wedding both he and Christian wanted to know why I wasn't in bed surrounded by pillows making sure nothing happened to this precious little baby. :-)

2) As I just stated Joel (greg's brother) married Camie Clement. YEAH!!! She is awesome and we are soo excited she is a part of our family.

3) Greg has decided what he wants to be when he grows up. He has decided that h…

Hunter's 10th Birthday

Image
My baby is 10 today! I can't believe it!! It is crazy to me to think that just 10 years ago I was laying in the hospital gazing at my newborn baby thinking "I could stare at you all day" and "where in the heck were you inside my body??" (he was laying with his head on my chest and his feet were on the bed). It has been an amazing ten years! He is the sweetest, most amazing kid - with a crazy attitude streak every now and again. I guess that makes him a normal preteen. UUGGHHH Preteen??!!?!!??

Hunter decided that for his birthday dinner we would go to Red Lobster - this is not a surprise as we go here for each of his birthday dinners. He loves Crab Legs!! He ate an entire pound of them. Mom and Allen came with us. I know the pictures are dark - I forgot my camera and only had my phone.




First Appointment

I had my first Dr. appointment yesterday - it was a little last minute - so thanks Cecily for watching Jilly. I appreciate it!! He did an ultrasound and it turns out that I am a week behind what we thought. I am only about 5 weeks because I ovulate so late so he wasn't able to see the heartbeat. That makes me a little nervous. The doc seemed fine with it. He said he could see everything developing as it should at 5 weeks and that normally you can't detect a heartbeat until about 6 weeks. So I have another appointment in a week and a half. That one Greg can come with and see everything too. Other than that everything else is very normal. I love normal!!!! (I don't get that a lot in my world) :-)

Our new vehicle!

Image
I am so excited!!! We got a new Tahoe!! Since the baby is coming we were going to need a car that seated 9. I have wanted a Tahoe since I was pregnant with Jilly. That was my plan then ..... but the van fell in our laps and it was too good of a deal to pass up. So, my dreams of a Tahoe went on hold. Now that I have another "reason" to need a new car I get serious. After a couple of weeks of looking for a few vehicles that met our criteria and a very long day of being on the phone and negotiating with numerous car dealerships, we finally came to terms that everyone could agree on with this beautiful vehicle. YEAH!!! I am soo excited. It will be squishy with all the kids - but we all love each other. :-)


Summer is Coming

Image
I received this email from a friend of mine. I laugh sooo hard everytime I look at it! I thought I would share it with you. She is from Minnesota, of course........


Summer is almost here.....we can now see the deer moving around.
Yep, won't be long . . .

New background

So I think I finally have this blog thing figured out. I went online and figured out how to change the background of our blog. I was ready for something different. Like it? I also added pictures of the kids along the side. Apparently I am in the mood for redecorating.

If I was closer to having this baby, I would be nesting....

Image
So first off......this is me :-) I am not quite 6 weeks along (I will be on Tuesday) and I am larger than some people that are six months.........hmmm.....reasons this is a good thing: 1) I don't have to feel bad about spending money on maternity clothes, because I will wear them out 2) No one has to wonder if I am pregnant or if I am just chubby 3) You can never get tired of hearing 'are you sure you aren't having twins or triplets?' and 4) (my personal favorite) I like to give my babies the best - they live in a mansion while others keep their babies in an apartment.



So, I had a return this morning at Ross. Because Greg was with me when we bought the items I was returning, he had used his card. Since I didn't have his card with me, they would only give me store credit. This, my friends, is a VERY dangerous situation. I had a gift card with $32.00 on it. You don't really expect me to walk out of the store with it do you???? Well, I didn't.....and I sp…

Soccer is cancelled

Image
It has been raining NON-STOP for the last couple of weeks. It is crazy the amount of water. Who knew we had lake front property!! So I took a picture of the soccer field. If it wasn't so cold, I would have let the kids go swimming!

I'm Pregnant!!

YEAH!!! I'm pregnant!! We just found out. An online pregnancy calendar says that I am due on September 27th. I am soo excited!!!

Post #2 in January - DON'T PASS OUT!!!!

Here I am for post #2 and it is still January....can you believe it????? Well we have had a VERY busy couple of weeks. Greg and I have new stake callings. Yes, stake callings. That is never good. It is never good to get on the stake radar!! But we have been called as Assistant Coordinators for the Trek in December. It should be a ton of fun....interesting to see what happens when the two oldest girls hear they will be attending this fun filled event!!!! ;-)

Also, and probably the most life changing information is that we found out Greg is allergic to....everything!! Well, specifically WHEAT, OATS, SHRIMP, CHICKEN, TURKEY, CORN, RICE, and ORANGES. It is crazy!! These allergies are sooo encompassing. Things that you would never even think about. Such as - his medication has cornstarch in them; candy bars are molded by using a wheat by product; just about anything sweet had corn syrup in it; all gluten (wheat) free products are made with corn or rice. We have had a tough time figuring out…

Happy New Year!

So it is January 2010. I know that I post a new post at the beginning of every year indicating that I am going to post more this year than last.....well, since I only posted 5 times last year that goal should not be too hard to obtain. I love looking at every one's "blog books" and want to make some of my own. I realize that in order to accomplish this I actually have to blog. Maybe I will actually do it this year. That is certainly my hope.

After reading everyone's blogs, you all made me think about what has happened in the last decade. As 2010 begins, I look back at the last 10 years and am amazed at the time that has come and gone. The big moments of the last 10 years of my life are.....
