Here are some pictures from the last few days...

Jason and Dee had us all over for Memorial Day. It was also Jason's birthday but he still got stuck doing the grilling. =) He did a great job and we all had a really nice time. Thanks Jason and Dee for throwing such a nice party. And happy b-day again Jason! (These pictures were taken with Mom's new fancy camera that is why they look better then mine normally do!)

Here are some pictures Mark took in the backyard with Malachy today! They are really fun! The one with Mal looking sad is because he got tired of having his picture taken. =) But then he decided he liked it again...

Fun Malachy day!

Saturday was mine and Mark's fun Malachy day! We went to Lords Park to visit the Buffalo, play at the play park, and climb trees! Then we had Subway for lunch, yummy! Next we headed off too Randall Oaks so Malachy could go feed the goats at the petting zoo. He loved that. Every animal was his best friend and his favorite animal. After that we came home for a quick rest. Then we met the Kunze's at the Pizza Pub for a fun dinner and hit up the DQ for dessert. Finaly Mark and Malachy played out side for alittle while with the Scott and the kiddos before we headed home for bed. It was a very full day! I was so glad that Mark and I could give Malachy some fun attention before the baby arrives! Here are some pictures...

Owen and I tried to join in on the tree climbing fun but we just couldn't get up in the tree! =)

I didn't get many pictures at the petting zoo because my batteries died. This is Malachys favorite goat!

Here is one of Malachy being sweet at home.

Here I am as big as a house. We took this a week ago.

Things are getting done, which makes me happy!
My house is getting more and more baby ready.
Mark has decided to stay at Willow and move in to his new position there when New Community is finished. I would try to explain his new position but it is kind of confusing to me. It seems to be a little of everything and I'm not sure of his title or anything. But it is good to know where he will be finally.
Also my baby is getting done and will join our family on Thursday!!
Mark is home for the next 2 weeks!!!!!!!! =)
So I'm feeling happy and excited for the future!

Interesting week...
well maybe not to normal people but it has been interesting to me. =)

Mark and I are getting the Malibo fixed after over 2 years of it sitting around. We are using our tax rebate thing! It should be done on Monday or Tuesday and we will be excited that it will no longer be a piece of junk in the drive way but an actual functioning car with better gas mileage then the jeep.

Also, a friend and co-worker from church came over and fixed our oven! It hasn't worked in around 3 months or so. I'm really excited it got fixed before Owen makes his arrival and we have house guests and what not. And I was touched that our friend was willing to use some of his day off to do this for us!

Mark went to a Cubs game on Thursday which is a big deal for him as you all know. I was really excited for him and glad he got to go.

Mom and I washed my couch upholstery on Monday and I feel like I'm slowly getting the things I wanted done before the baby is here crossed off the list.

Mark and I spent some time in the yard today after he got home from work. He did the most work of course. =) But we got it cleaned up enough that we don't have to be embarrassed if people come over, or if we end up having a showing.

This weekend Mark and I are doing a major basement clean up. I will be making sure all the baby stuff is washed in baby safe gentle detergent and organizing the baby stuff and Malachy clothes. Mark will be doing the hard scrub down of the floors and such. And we will both tackle the 500 toys we have down there and getting the basement ready for when Marks Mom comes to stay with us after the baby is born.

Monday I'm going to hang out with the girl friends. Thursday is my last doctors appointment before the C-Section!!

Mark is still figuring out the work thing for those of you who were wondering. But he is happy and looking forward to however the situation plays out. He feels at peace with it.

Depending on how I'm feeling and how much we get done he may start his 2 weeks on Monday the 26th. If we are able to get enough done over the next 2 weekends then he may decide to wait until the 29th to start his 2 weeks. Of course this is all up in the air because I'm at that point where I can go into labor any minute. Sometimes I wish I would so I can have my little Owen and start to recover. Other times I hope I won't because the house isn't ready. We will see what happens.

Anyhoo that is probably the extent of my update. Hope all is well with you all. =)
