What we've been up to and a look back

It seems like it has been a busy week. Do you feel that way also?

Honestly every week goes by so quickly because we seem to have so many things going on during the week and on weekends.  So I thought I would share a few things about our week and also wanted to share a couple of "old" photos with you.

Karlena turned 9 mos old a few days ago and today we had her well-baby visit with the doctor.  She is healthy and happy and growing like a weed! She has decided that she would like to start trying to walk already.... something this mama is NOT excited about!

She weighed 19lbs 6oz (60%) and is 28 1/2 in long (81%)!! She is going to be tall and skinny like her brothers!

I would post a recent picture of her but earlier this week our laptop died and so we are using the old computer and I can't for the life of me find the cord to the camera to transfer pictures. (Thus the reason I will be sharing some older, stored photos with you!)

But speaking of Karlena.....

This was taken at Christmas in 2009.  Missing her so much these days!!!

Our laptop died the day before the 1 yr warranty expired. We called Best Buy and were told to bring it in by 9pm the next day (the day the warranty expired) and they would fix it.

Dominic drove 2 hrs to Sioux Falls to drop it off only to be told that the manufacturer doesn't accept items on the day that the warranty expires. (Not happy Bob!!)

But he held his cool - good thing I wasn't along!! - and due to the fact he was driving 4 hrs round trip and relied on what the guy the night before said they are going to fix it. Sounds like it is the motherboard and we won't have a computer for at least 3 weeks.

I am going to have to find that camera cord for sure!

Gabriel started Awana with our church last week and is LOVING it!! He memorized his first bible verse immediately (John 3:16) and once he remembered that it was "perish" and not "puurshish" he was good to go!  He got his new book last night and his teacher told me that it is great having him in class because he is so enthusiastic!!

Speaking of Gabriel.....

This was taken in 2006 - he looks SO much like Elijah it is nuts!!

I had conferences for Isaac this week and he is doing great. I am never worried about his grades but it is nice to hear his teachers say what a great kid he is!

Speaking of Isaac....

This was taken in 2007. Can you believe how much he has matured?! Crazy!!

Last night while I was taking Gabriel to Awana, Elijah found a scissors and cut his own bangs. Isaac is NOT getting paid for that babysitting time! :):)


And speaking of Elijah....

Here he was on Sept 23rd 2008. Just a little bambino starting to grow!
Dominic has an extra long day at work today and tomorrow and my mom is coming up to stay here tomorrow so that I can go to Sioux Falls for work.  Saturday is the SMSU Homecoming and there is a big parade happening that again runs right by our block! So we will be praying for nice weather so we can all go out and enjoy that together!
Hope that the end of your week is blessed!!
