Psalm 127:3-5

Sons are a heritage from the Lord, children a reward from him. Like arrows in the hands of a warrior are sons born in one's youth. Blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them. They will not be put to shame when they contend with their enemies in the gate.

Psalm 127:3-5
Dean and Dawn proud parents of these blessings:

Mackenzie Jo 19, Carter Dean 15, Reegan Marie 12, Cael Charles 11, Quincy Everett 9, Addelynn Ruth 7, Cade Joseph 5, Kyler Erwin 4, and Jaycie LeeAnn 2

Overheard at the Happels

Many stories from NE, included a few "your mama's so poor" jokes. One favorite "Your mama's so poor she cannot afford a free sample"

Dean and Carter making a very big joke over Mackenzie needing to be in Marion on Saturday for a tech portion of rehearsal for Robin Hood. She has been promoted to curtain opening and closing. So Dean starts laughing and Carter starts making the pulling on the cord motions to help her out. Very funny. However, Mackenzie says they will not be laughing when she is opening and closing the curtain on Broadway!

Not so overheard, was Cael and Quincy who asked if while Addy and Cade slept in the family room could they wrestle on the mat as long as they were not loud. They may have held the longest silent wrestling match on record.

Me saying, oh my, 9 days until my EDD guess I better stop being a rebel and pack my bag!! My mental game here is this; until April 23rd I really have nothing to be concerned about. Best not be letter her call my bluff here.

Me saying YEAH!! As I got an email back from the company that Leslie Sansone has her in home walking workouts. I wrote to them telling them my story and they wrote back offering me a free DVD of my choice.

Me telling Dean I thought I should get Cade some underwear and perhaps rubber pants to keep the mess in, and Cade saying "I don't think so".

Hey the new fridge works, and I keep testing the new dishwasher, it has passed dried cheese and spaghetti o's!!

Off to get some good grocery shopping done, and to finish the bag packing. I just hate having a bag sit there looking at you and saying "Yep, I am still here, and you are still pregnant!". I go in tomorrow for my 39 weeks check up. Not going to get away with denying a "check" this time. So far I have been, but was given the heads up that I would more then likely have to let her check me this time. Well the good news is that it will add about 1 minute to the 5 minute appt. Weight gain at this point is 26lbs.
