Quick trip!

Well we just got back from a super quick trip to Iowa.  I am telling you it was quick because we arrived at 9pm on Friday night and left at noon on Sunday.  Over 16 hours in the car for that little visit!  It was so good to see everyone though.  Dom and I worked a Catholic Men's conference all day on Saturday as venders with our Lighthouse Catholic Media table.  We really enjoyed being there.  Dominic really liked the keynote speaker and so did my dad.  It was wonderful having my dad there at the conference so he could see us in action at our table.  Some of my friends from years ago were there so I was able to catch up with them too!  Then on Saturday night, we spent some time with my sister Ann and her family.  Everyone looked great!  The kids had so much fun together.  Mena can't stop talking about her cousins and has been making them pictures for the last hour!  Anyway, I got to see my little Godchild Egan.  He is such a smilely little fellow.  Oren, Alice, and Mena had a ball downstairs with Grandma and Grandpa while Ann and I caught up on chit chat.  Dom and Aaron were in the other room chatting away too!  Ann and I are both pregnant now so we got a little pic together withour bellies.  She is around 10 weeks and I am 27 weeks.  Fun times!  Then we left for home in the morning.  and got back to our humble abode around 10pm.  That made for one LONG weekend!

There are so many reasons I am against this healthcare bill, this being one of them.  The main one being the issue of abortion coverage.  They are now saying that it is better for us if they do cover abortions as it will save us tons of money.  How horrible is that...they are putting a pricetag on human life...and admitting that if they don't include abortion coverage more babies will be born and cost them more.  How sad!
Please pray that this bill does not pass in it's current form.

Ten things that make me happy...

Ten things that make me happy today...
1.  Dom has a three day work week!
2.  Mena is old enough to help me clean, and actually does a pretty good job.  Our bean jar we use for Lenten sacrifices really helps for motivation purposes!
3.  Our kickoff for Lighthouse this past weekend was successful and we have a lot of other promising leads.
4.  My sister is pregnant with baby number four!!!!!!  How exciting!  My parents are going to have 8 grandkids 4 and under in October. 
5.  We get to visit my family in two weeks.  I can't wait!
6.  Mena gets to attend a free class with her play group at a gym this Friday.
7.  Dom gets to help me in the nursery for Atrium this Thursday.  Fun times!
8.  I bought a new nursing bra and it should come in the mail this week.  This makes me very excited!

10.  I finally got a good night sleep last night!!!!!!!!!!!

Peek a boo!

Dom and I took Mena to the park on Sunday.  It was definitly muddy but so worth the little mud to enjoy the sunshine and get out as a family!  We are looking forward to this summer when our little Joshua will join us on these little family outings!

My little dollbaby!

I just love this shot of Mena!

Pregnancy 24 weeks

Well, I am now 24 weeks along in this pregnancy.  I still can't believe how fast the time is flying by!  It's great!  I was having really bad Sciatica for a couple of months but it is now getting a whole lot better.  We are naming our little guy Joshua David.  He is so active in the womb and I can't wait to see how he will be out!  Here are a few prego pics of me...
