Weekend in Tahoe

Today we left Fresno, and headed up to Tahoe for a couple days. I had this week off, so we thought it would be a good trip before the baby comes to spend some time up here. My sister and her family are planning on coming up either tomorrow or Saturday. It is suppose to be really cold, but we are just planning on laying low and maybe playing in the snow a little bit.

There was a big storm that was suppose to hit today, but it held off till we got here. The weather was really nice all the way up, but tonight is when the storm is suppose to get here.

Stay tuned for some pictures once we get back on Sunday.

Oliver's New Room

With June coming quickly, we knew that we needed to get the spare room cleaned out and make it Oliver's new room. We knew we wanted him in it soon, so he wouldn't think the new baby was kicking him out of his current room. The spare room was a disaster! And when I say disaster, I mean to the point where I hated even opening the door and looking inside it. There were still boxes in the closet from when we moved in over 2 years ago!

We spent all day today going through everything. Making trash piles, donate piles, and piles of stuff to sell on craigslist.

There was already a day bed that Joey's dad gave us a while back, and we knew we were going to use my old dresser, so we pretty much just needed new bedding and decorations.

We went to Target today and let Ollie pick out the bedding that he wanted. Deep down I wanted him to pick the sports bedding that he already had on his toddler bed because I had already bought some of the decorations, just never put up(which I am glad I didn't). Sure enough he picked out the same exact bedding, just in a twin size.

I am so happy with the way it turned out. All that is left to do is put up the valance that matches, but we need to get the rod for it to go on. Once that is up(hopefully by this next weekend), it will be complete!

Now I can concentrate on going through all of Oliver's old clothes. Also, we just ordered the crib(long story, Oliver's was recalled) for the baby and can't wait to get it in.

Catching up

So I know it has been forever since I posted last, but there is a very good reason for it. I am pregnant! And up until a couple weeks ago I have been exhausted!!! With working full time, getting Oliver from daycare, getting dinner ready, and then bedtime for Ollie I have had zero energy.

Right now I am 16 weeks and we just found out it's another boy! We are so excited for Ollie to have a little brother. Plus we will be able to reuse all of the stuff that we already have.

We were able to tell our families that's its another boy on Christmas Eve. It was very exciting to see all their reactions. This will make 4 grandson's on my side!

Vacation is almost over:(

Yesterday Ollie and myself packed up the car and headed up to Walnut Creek to visit my sister and her family. The past couple road trips Ollie has been a total pill in the car so we decided to get a DVD player that attaches to the back of the head rest. Let me tell you, that is the best $100 that we have spent in a long time. I got him Toy Story and a Yo Gabba Gabba DVD and I didn't hear one peep out of him the entire ride!

Today my sister's friend Jamie is coming into town and I think we are going to do a little shopping. Then later tonight they are going to a concert and Joey is coming up on the train.

Finger painting fun!

What a fun day we had today! I have been wanting to change up Oliver's room from a nursery to a big boy room. A friend of mine had her kids do this and I thought it was a great idea and I knew Ollie would love doing it.

It sure was messy, but we had a ton of fun!

I'll post pictures of his finished masterpiece as soon as I get them hung up in his room.

Fun at the Zoo

Today Ollie, my mom, and myself met Aimee and Marlee at the zoo. We got there nice and early and the weather was beautiful! Ollie had a great time with Marlee.

After the zoo we went to lunch and then dropped my mom off at home. I had a doctors appointment at 3 so my mom came over around 2:30 to watch Ollie(he was napping when I had to leave). Got home at 4 and Ollie was still sleeping! He had such a long day he was exhausted!

Not sure what we have going on tomorrow. One thing I do want to do is watch the DVD that came with the clippers that I bought a couple months ago. Ollie's hair grows so fast that I am hoping I can do a good job cutting his hair so I can start doing it on a regular basis.
