What to do, What to do!!!
Well as you know from my last post we have decided to try to sell the house. In the meantime we have looked at house out in the country. When I say country that is what I mean!! It is a good 10 miles out. 6 highway and a little over 3 gravel. Yes gravel not to crazy about that.
The house is pretty and a newer build but there are a few things that I don't like most of them cosmetic. The light fixtures have to go all of them!! The mirrors in the all the bathrooms gone. The kitchen and living room are all open love that but just don't know if it is big enough to entertain. I would have my kitchen table and three bar stools. Not really anymore room to put up a plastic table anywhere. Will anybody come that far out to see me anyways?? There is a very nice back patio that Brad would like to screen in so I guess that would help. Well at least during nice weather. There are no linen closets or coat closets, but there are plenty of cabinets throughout. I am an organize freak so everything has to be in a certain spot. When you come up the lane there is a bean field on the left of you and one on the right. Did I mention will anybody come visit me??? My mom said well if it is gravel I won't come out. She did last night I told her it wouldn't be a fast trip and she came went through it in like 10 mins and said bye. Not something we could do just come and go like that. There is absolutely no landscaping. The front porch is big and blah. It needs a railing and some color. See just stupid things that will come with time.
Will my house sell and will we get what we need to get out of it? I talked to the bank and they make it sound great and the numbers they throw out I think to myself is totally doable but will that be the reality of it. What if my house doesn't sell for a year then what?? Can we handle paying 2 mortgages?? Oh I think I am sick all ready! Will anybody come see me? I am so used to an open house here and people coming and going out of all the things I keep coming back to this one.

Things that I like:
The calm of the country, it is so peaceful out there. When leaving last night you couldn't even see the house it was dark! There is enough room for the kids to run. A basement with an extra room and even enough space for another room or two if we wanted. It is a nice home a place where I think we could call home. The boys can have a dirt track for the motorcycle and 4-wheeler. Brad and them can hunt in there back yard and go on woods walks. The price is nice. We can still go on vacations and do things and not be tied down to a large house payment every month.
I guess I just need to leave my worries behind and let the good Lord take over he will provide the right answers for us it just takes time. Easier said than done though.

House for sale!
Brad doesn't want to put our house on the market he wants to try to sell it himself. (paying someone to do the work is out of the question) So I will put it on Face Book and in the paper.
If you or anyone you know are looking to buy it is a nice home three bedroom, 2 and a half bath, with a partial walk-out basement 2100sq ft. It is on 2 lots with a two car detached garage. Please e-mail me at
Please pass the word along.

Six years has come and gone just like that!

It is so hard to believe that my little Mann is 6 already. It is so bittersweet. He was a good little baby and then has grown into a funny, rotten little boy! Always on the go, always into something, and always causing mischief!! I have said from the get go that he would make a great comedian or a politician you just never know what is going to come out of his mouth. I couldn't imagine what my life would be like without him.

Happy Birthday little buddy mommy loves you all the time even when you are doing things you shouldn't. You are a cute, sweet, little ham and I am eternally grateful to the good Lord for giving me the privilege to be your momma:)


One of memas crazy gifts. She always comes up with something funny;)

Miles is such a big boy these days

Pattons bday cake made by Rachel Kocher she did a great job!!

Well another doctor's appt down. I am down to every 2 weeks now!! I really never thought this day would come. As much as I want to say I have enjoyed this pregnancy I can't. I feel guilty of that but it is what it is. I have gained 1 pound from last month I guess you could say I am all baby so that is a good thing. Less for me to have to worry about taking off later. (selfish I know) I am currently down in the back apparently due to the fact that my body is making relaxin to help my joints relax and let this baby slide out (that never happens but sounds good) and the more kids you have and the the older you are the more pain some mother may feel. I guess I just am one of the lucky ones. Other than this everything is looking good. I cancelled my second appt for Evansville because there is just nothing we can do and it is just really a very expensive appt so Brad and I agreed there was no need to go again. I felt guilty at first but the lady at St. Mary's made me feel better about it. I just thought maybe they missed something the first time that they would see now. I can't do that to myself so I won't.
I have a good friend who took these great pics of babe for me. Some of them are a little....well creepy. I hate to say that. I think most of them are just simply amazing! I think baby looks like its little brother Patton. Can't wait to meet it and find out for real! These were taken a couple of weeks ago and the little peanut was weighing in at 2 and a half pounds sounds so big to me having so much time left all it is going to do is get bigger.

Little leg and foot, looks like dad's long toes

This just shows the blood flow to the heart

This one makes me think of Patton

I think this one looks like babe will have dad's nose and chin.

This is where that big babe resides. Wow is all I can say:)
