Been awhile...

It has been a little while since I have been around. Mostly because Aaron kind of freaked about me having a blog. But I kind of like having a place to keep my thoughts so here I am again.

What's new...

Logan turned 2 on August 2nd. We had a party for him with family and a few friends.

Blake will be 6 months next week.

Aaron and I will celebrate our 4th anniversary on Thursday. No plans but we are headed to St. Louis that evening so we can be there already Friday. We are taking the boys to the Zoo.

I am still keeping my eyes open for any jobs that would be worth me looking into. If the right one comes along, I will go back to work. Otherwise I will keep on doing what I am doing.

Terrible Two's

We are experiencing the terrible 2's in our house these days. Logan has been really out of hand with hit fits and with hitting and trying to bite. I know a lot of it is because he doesn't have the vocabulary needed to communicate with us, but it doesn't make it any less irritating! Logan is in his 3rd time out and he's only been awake for 2.5 hours. I think probably part of it is also missing Daddy. I will be glad when he gets home tomorrow night!

Is it Friday yet?!?!?!?!?!?!

Aaron had to go out of town for the entire week to New Teacher Training., leaving me to care for our boys alone from Sunday afternoon until Friday evening. It's really not a big but Logan is starting to miss Daddy and keeps asking for him. Unfortunately, he isn't old enough to understand what is going on so I can't easily explain it to him. On top of that, we are having Logan's 2nd bithday party on Saturday and have about 20 people coming. Somehow, I have to manage to get my house cleaned before then. Not going so well. Luckily, Aaron's parents have offered to take the boys this evenign so that I can get some stuff done. Unluckily, I will only be sending Logan since Blake is still breastfed and is eating so frequently that I cannot find the opportunity to pump. Oh well, hopefully he will nap some while I get some cleaning done.

Introducing Us!

Aaron and I met in July 1998 after being introduced by our friend, Jesse (Raithel) Muenks. We immediately seemed to hit it off and officially started dating on July 11, 1998. We dated for several years before becoming engaged on December 19, 2002. After a 1 yar and 9 month engagement, we were married on September 18, 2004. Not quite 2 years later, we welcomed our first child, Logan Gary, on August 2, 2006. Our love for parenthood led us to quickly decide to have another child. Blake Aaron was born on March 22, 2008. Now that we are blessed with 2 beautiful boys, we have decided to hold off for awhile on welcoming anymore children into our family. We figure, 2 under 2 is enough to handle!

Everyone else is doing it...

Well, the title says it all. Seems like everyone else is blogging these days so I figured why not me to. It will give me the opportunity to share things about our family or just random thoughts. Hopefully I will be able to keep up with it and make it something I am proud of.
