wow.....it has been a long time....

things are busy and crazy at the tucker house. But so much fun. The kids are really being good and sweet...but there are times that I still think the devil is in them.

I did survive Toby being gone.....they learned alot down in Austin and it was a great time to get away ..... Also the kids and I really had some good bonding moments. Last Wednesday I took the kids to Groom to stay with my parents for a couple of days. It was nice but lonely.... I had a dr appt and the flu-filled clinic on Thursday.... I was really nervous about going...since I was finally healthy and so was my family. When I finally thought I was going to give the front desk my cell phone and go to my car.....a little kids (threw up) right in front of me....That was just great. Oh well, I got the flu shot that day and just prayed that I didn't get sick.... The rest of the appointment went great.....

Then I went home to try to clean and get ready for my party that night. I am trying to get the Supper Club up and going again. Aunt Susan's Kitchen made the meal for me. And it was great... I really think the rest of the girls had a great time. And I think we got it started again....

Then the weekend we had a FAMILY day(s). We really enjoyed each other and had a great time.....There is not enough days in my lifetime for me to spend days like that.

This week has been busy.... The gym and everything else. The Valentine's party were good and fun. Mom (gramz) got to come down and go to Kaitlyn's party which made her day ( and everyone's day). She had to rush back though....since she had parts that dad and the boys needed to work on the equipment.....that stunk....we were all sad that she had to leave so early....but atleast she got to come down and visit....

They leave next week for 11 days to go on a cruise of the panama canal...My grandmother and a friend, and my aunt and uncle are going with them.....It has always been something they wanted to do... I am glad they get to do things like that now.....

Toby and I have been wanting to leave and go on a trip....but with mom and dad leaving we will put those plans on hold. That is ok...maybe we can go somewhere....when I am not so preggo..haha

Valentine's day is one of my fav holidays. I just think it is a nice day to say I love you. I know you should say it every day and always do nice things....but I think that is a great day to just celebrate all the love and good things in your life. Whether it is family or friends... I know alot of people think flowers are a waste of money...and they are probably right...but you should see the dozen roses that I got....I love them....If you haven't gotten your man anything....I went to Ballyhoo's and got the cutest basket made. I got some coffee mugs, popcorn, gourmet candies and other neat little things....I really thought is was a fun and practical gift....

This weekend...we haven't decided if we are just going to stay home and relax and work on the house.....and yard...or take the kids and go shopping for clothes...Caden has outgrown everything...I mean everything. I am ready to summer so he can wear shorts.....and sandals....and for some reason...I can't find an entire box of my maternity clothes...so I don't have any clothes....and I don't want to buy very much...I just hope that I can find them ASAP....

On a fun note, a friend and I have talked about starting a playdate group. I started one in Wheeler and loved it. kaitlyn still talks bout it. I hope we can get it going...we will see....

I hope everyone has a great Valentine's Day and a great weekend....

I am so glad to see an update! And did someone say shopping? We need to plan a day to go to the big city and go on a shopping trip! My girlfriends and I used to go on a little shopping trip about once a month or so in Hamilton! I REALLY miss it! Maybe we can get around to that someday! I feel like here in the big C us girls need to be better about spending some time together! I would love to have a very close group of women to just HANG with every now and then. Even if its just..."hey, lets go get a coke(or water with lemon)!" I think we are both missing that about or previous towns!

Anywho...glad you are feeling good! Catcha later!

I'm so sorry I wasn't able to be at the supper club or be there for you while Toby was gone. Let's do something soon. I miss ya! Thanks for being there for me and checking on us over the past few weeks! You're awesome! Love - Sharon

Amy, I miss that about my previous town, too. I loved having a really close group of girls I did things with and vented too and just dropped by to "hang out." I know women need those sorts of things much more than men. Hopefully someday soon I will be able to join in on the "mommy" conversations, too. Thanks so much for the sweet, encouraging words on my blog.

Hey Steph...how far along are you? I was just wondering if you knew boy/girl yet? I loved our play group here until it kinda dwindled away. Know we have a Mom's Bible Study and the church keeps our kids for us...I LOVE IT! Take care!

Stephanie - I really am talking to my husband about Supper Club and being able to come every once in awhile...maybe during summer! Also...if you do get a playdate group together (like on a weekend) maybe we could come (I mean the twins). The twins played so good with your kids and they don't ever get to be around other kids...just the two of them. Anyway - if you need participants...I have two! Keep me posted!
