Ups and Downs

That is what life consists of right now. Complete ups and downs. Better than ALL downs though, right?!?! ;)

Christian had his Winter Wonderland day at school on Friday. Jarrett stayed home from work so that he could watch Ava and I could be a part of it. It was so cute! They had little stations set up around the room and the kids were divided up in groups of 4-5. Me and another mom were in charge of the "Penguin Waddle" game. The kids put a beanbag on their feet and had to waddle like a penguin to the finish line. SOOOOOO cute and the kids got a real kick out of it! It was way harder than it looked though! LOL They also had a story/hot chocolate station, relay race putting on winter clothes (hat, scarf, gloves, etc...), winter snowglobe craft, a science station where they painted with ice cubes (water with food coloring frozen with a popsicle stick in it) and made a string stick to an ice cube floating in water by sprinkling it with salt, and a snack station where they made a snowman out of little powdered doughnuts. It was all SOOOOO cute!!

He also had PJ day at school yesterday. His whole class got to wear their pajamas to school and they looked so adorable! He told everyone about it and he's been looking forward to it for weeks now. They got to sit on a blanket and watch a "Franklin" cartoon while having a snack. A BIG deal when you're 4 yrs old! LOL

We took the kids bowling for the first time ever on Saturday! It was sooooooooooooo much fun!!! Christian would have stayed there all day if we left him! Ava got bored after about 4 frames, so he played her games for her too! Yep...do the math...He did 3 and a half games all by himself! They pulled up the bumper rails so that the kids couldn't get gutter balls and it was such a blast. I'll have to post pics tomorrow. I haven't downloaded the camera yet!

We're not really sure what is going on righ tnow for the whole "home" front. We can't get any kind of an idea what the estimated taxes are going to be for the new house which is SO frustrating! We also have a couple options to break off a piece or 2 of the property and sell it to make this all possible again. I truly hope that we can figure out a way to afford to build the new house. It means so much to me! The land has been in my family forever and it will be so nice to continue our life on it.

We still have a bunch of people looking at the house too, which is SO hard! Someone is coming again tomorrow morning....UGH!! Supposedly, the person that was here on Friday has "some interest"...whatever the hell that's supposed to mean! Show me an offer!!!!!

SO...life is up and down...trying to stay positive and hoping that something happens soon! Happy Tuesday!!! {HUGS}
