I have a minute!

Thats right between packing to move (we are near the end of the process of short -or long- selling our house) being 34 1/2 weeks pregnant with twins (I don't want to talk about it), having my 4 year old and 18 month old and still working, I found 1 minute. My husband has taken the girls for a walk. Emolyn said "I wish I could go on a walk with you, maybe when you're done being pregnant". Preach it sister.
34 weeks and counting
So life update. Or maybe I can just tell you what I have done in the last hour! Its Easter! Yeah Happy Easter to everyone. I made it to church this morning (Easter miracle) and had all the girls in Easter dresses with hair done. I didn't pass out at church (Easter miracle). My blood pressure has been running super low because aparently all my blood is pooling in my pelvis to keep these children alive and not circulating to, you know my brain. So I have to be sitting down pretty much all the time (advice straight from the Dr's office, very helpful "If you feel like you are going to pass out you should sit down". Oh really I thought it would be better to start taking the stairs or standing on some uneven ground). Anyway at this point even sitting doesnt always help and I have to lay down. Awesome and convenient. So between trying to get boxes packed- one done today and celebrating Easter today was exhausting but fun. My girls are amazing and Shawn has been performing as 2 parents.

Emolyn picked their Easter gift last month. We go onto the World Vision website and pick a gft to give. She picked bunnies! A family is given 3 bunnies and in a year the should have 50! These super prolific gifts bring food and money to a family in need.

My isn't he handsome. Now you know why we have 4 kids :)
For some reason I get this overwhelming NEED to "get things done" which is nearly fruitless at thi point but I have been collecting things during my packing for my mother-in-laws yard sale. And can I just say Why di I have all this stuff I dont need! It grosses me out. Clothes that dont fit and havent in a long time or that I wouldnt wear again even if they did. Shoes that hurt my feet, notebooks full of college lectures I heard 8 years ago, and hand grippers. Who needs hand grippers? I had 2! Anyway I am so ready to purge this stuff instad of pack it. Of course then I get into packing it to move where? I dont know yet :) Just one of many of life's current unknowns. When will these twin boys come? when will we move?where will we move? will I have to go back to work full time and leave my poor husband with 4 kids at home? How long can I really make my maternity leave last financially? Ahh what an exciting life I lead :) That being said here are some photos from today and hopefully I will find more minutes to sneak away .

I love you so much Nicole and I love the way you write and record your life! Thanks for sharing about your Easter Miracles and hopefully sooner rather than later you get to hold those sweet boys in your arms :)

Thank you for sharing your life, Nicole! I love that you can still laugh (kinda) at your crazy world. I am praying for all those uncertainties to be answered in a wonderfully positive way. God is good and someday, you'll love telling the story about these days.

I love that you still have a sense of humor Nicole! And I love that you shared your minute with all of us. :) Lots going on in your life right now and you are doing a wonderful job growing those babies and keeping it all together. I had to LOL at your list of giveaways. What are hand grippers anyway? :)

cturoNicole, I treasure you and see such beauty in all of your chaos. You are the amazing woman of glory God has created you to be. You are whimsical and honestly overwhelmed at times but He has made you glorious! I am so proud of the great woman and mom you have become. I love you forever!
