- This week-end we went to my parents. On sat. we all ventured to Mall of America. I love going to the mall, even though I know we have no money to buy anything... just being there makes me happy. Does anyone else feel the same way?
- That evening Chad and his girlfriend Anna came over. We hung out, had a nice supper and played some games. They ended up spending the night and then staying most of Sun. Was a lot of fun. They make a great couple...Kent and I approve not that that matters or anything.:)
- Sunday night an ice storm hit and then a blizzard. We ended up spending Sunday night at my parents so we didn't have to drive home in the stuff. Then I decided to stay at my parents with the kids since Kent was going to be working a lot the next couple of days. It has been so bitterly cold these last couple days. Hope this below zero stuff doesn't last too long. I bought a snowsuit for Axel and would like to try it out.

Jonathan my youngest cousin.
Axel and Jonathon playing they are very close in age. Notice the shoes Axel found...he also found a little pink purse he carried around.
Our long Thanks-giving Week-end
Axel first time touching a deer. It took him awhile to warm up to the idea..but once he realized that it wasn't going to move he couldn't get enough of it.

Axel was feeling better a couple nights ago so we decided to play a little music, dance around and let off some steam. For some reason Axel thought it was hilarious when I had Chloe dance with him.
Also Axel finally likes books. He'll bring them to you to read and will usually sit through a whole pile of books. He even sits by himself some times and looks at all the books. They used to just be another thing to throw around so it's pretty exciting for me. We have already made a couple trips to the library to get a big bag of books.

Haven't posted in a while because our Internet was down....but it's back now. We were looking for cheaper Internet but I guess it doesn't exist and I guess we're just lucky that it comes all the way out here to our town.
First of all I'm very thank-ful to be a stay at home mom but some days I feel like I'm going crazy. Kent has been working long hours and then spending some of his time off hunting. Then when he is home we are both chasing after kids. I guess I feel my main problem is loneliness...adult conversation (face to face) without the constant interruption of kids would be nice once in a while.
Both kids are sick. Axel has a running nose and is very irritable. Adelynn is very congested and has a little cough. I hope they both get better soon...it's hard to watch them be so miserable.
Kent finally had a day off yesterday and it was wonderful. We got lots of errands run together and it was just nice to be able to spend some time with him. It was also quite a treat to get a break from the kids here and there.
Now to figure out how to get all the dishes done, clothes washed folded and put away, ironing done, supper ready and take care of two sick kids without going insane. I'm exhausted just thinking about everything I need to do. Well I better end this here and get to work. Hopefully next post will be alittle more cheerful.:)
Axel wanted to hold his little sister. He was trying to situate her on his lap so he could hold her all by himself...of course that wasn't going to happen but he tried.

This last week was fairly uneventful. The highlight of my week was when Kent my wonderful, caring and thoughtful husband came home early on Thursday to cook a special supper. It came exactly when I needed it most. I didn't want to even think about making supper and the kids had been driving me up the wall...mostly Axel with all the whining. I was so happy to see his smiling face and even more happy to have a wonderful supper cooked for me!
This week-end was also wonderful. My parents spent the week-end at our house. Axel loves Brenton and had a blast playing with him. It was also nice to have a little break with Adelynn. Kent went hunting on Sat. saw a few deer but didn't shoot anything. He's holding out for the big buck!:) That evening we all went out to eat at the Asian House. Yumm! Then Sun meeting, a nice little family lunch and some games. My studious little daughter.
Caught Adelynn cooing a little but couldn't get any really good videos. Everytime I turned on the camera she would stop and look at the camera all big eyed.
