It was only rough for me. AnDee thought it was great. She woke up an hour early this morning because she was SO excited she couldn't sleep anymore. Christmas??? No. Preschool!! The girl has been dying to go to preschool and it finally happened today. We walked there together, she walked right in the door and in to her room and didn't even look back. Me? Oh I made it ALL the way down the stairs before I burst in to tears, buckled Pep in to the stroller and walked away as fast as I could so the other more emotionally stable parents couldn't see what a wreck I was. I decided to walk it off and it only took me another half hour or so to get myself under control. Im happy for her. She is ecstatic and I love that, it just terrifies me that she is old enough to do things like that on her own. She is only 3 so we will have two years of preschool. Im sure I will be writing a similar post when she goes to kindergarten. Its just so darn hard to let her grow up! ;)
Here she is all ready for her very first day of school (and of course Pep too cause he has to do everything sissy does... even wear one of her shoes?)

When I went to pick her up, I of course asked her what she did while she was at school. These were her words (and I quote) "Um... we just watched a movie and played and I didn't learn nothin"

Now on to something that doesn't make me want to cry. We have been doing a lot of yard work lately. Trying to get things greened back up and in order for next spring. Pep wants to do EVERYTHING Daddy is doing. Daddy's solution to this? Put him on his shoulders. He has done everything from fix the sprinkler heads to tilling the garden on Dads shoulders and he is quite content to stay up there for as long as the job takes. He loves it... not quite as much as driving the riding lawn mower but its still love regardless.
 Yes... Buggy is following them with no pants on, the girl has this weird no pants policy. I hope she grows out of it.
Look at how that boy just wraps himself around his dads head and hangs on.... like a champ.

We have had a ton of rainbows here lately. This is probably the best thing since ice cream in Buggy's world. She is such a little hippie... dancing around and singing awesome songs about rainbows.... all with no pants on. Love her. I too have enjoyed the rainbows. So pretty and such a good opportunity for teaching about Heavenly Father's promises and of course Noah and the Ark.

So Crazy

Let me take a moment to explain to you why I have been MIA from the blogging world. I'm 13 weeks pregnant. Normally I wouldn't be telling you this but it got leaked out on Facebook (of the devil) against my will and so pretty much everyone knows anyway. I'm sick. I keep thinking that the morning sickness wouldn't be half as bad if I could just get some sleep but my hips are causing major problems already. I don't know if you remember my post about my hip being dislocated but what it boils down to is that it hurts and I don't sleep much. Plus we have some other crazy stuff going on. We signed on our knew house last weds. Got the keys thursday night and started moving in about an hour later. The packing, unpacking, and cleaning is going to be the end of me... Or my children?.. I'm not sure which. The move has definitely triggered some naughtiness and I'm about at my end with it. That being said... I LOVE MY NEW HOUSE! (pics to come) I love the space. Both the literal space and the emotional space. Our new ward seems awesome and the neighbors we have met are awesome. Hopefully we can get AnDee enrolled in the preschool accross the street. That would make life a little easier.
The last crazy thing? (well at least the last big one. I can't even name all the little things that are making life crazy) Andrew has a brain tumor. Now don't go freaking out. It's not cancerous nor is it life threatening. It does however, make him fairly miserable. It has been the cause of all the headaches, the unexplained weight gain, the upsets stomachs, the hives, and the extreme fatigue ALL the time. It's on his pituitary gland which is the gland that controls all your hormones. He's pretty uncomfortable 100% of the time and has been for going on 4 years now. The good news is that a couple weeks ago they gave us his  surgery date. September 12th. We are so excited but it's super scary. Brain surgery is always scary I think.
Life is nuts. I'm so behind on my blogging that I think I might forget what needs to be caught up on and just start fresh. But that will all have to wait until the house is in order and I don't have to do my blogging on my phone. This is ridiculous.

The new game

The picture is awful I know, but this is AnDee's new game.

The name of the game? How many ways can we find to jump over Pep. He is still living so I guess the game will go on?
