Thanksgiving Fun

It has been nearly 2 months since I have seen my family in Oakdale and I was missing them so much! I try to see them once a month, but with bedrest I was stuck down south. Tony was out of town on business, so I got to spend the 5 days with the family. I mis Paige and Levi like crazy and they are so different everytime I come home... you really notice it now that they are talking and playing new games. Amanada told Levi there were babies in my tummy, so he ket pulling up my shirt (or dress) and pointing to my stomach saying "ba-bies." It was the cutest thing ever! He calls Dellan "Momo " since he heard Amanada say Moses (his middle name) once on the phone with me.

Paige usually loves it when I come visit because I will hold her and give her the attention she demands. This time I was not allowed to lift them or pick them up at all. She sould follow me around with her hands up, openning and closing her hands, and a big pout. I felt so bad. She cried a few times and then decided she had had enough of me. Needless to say she was back with Grammie for the rest of the weekend. Levi, on the other hand, enjoyed my company. Here we are watching Frosty together.

Saturday my sister, mom, and I went to Babies R Us to register. It was SO HELPFUL to have my sister there. I just followed her around scanning what she pointed at. I will gladly rely on all her hard work and research. After registering I finally got my hair done. Notice the difference... I had the worst roots ever! This is what I get for still using my hair lady in a town 6 hours away!

The kids are exceptionally good at I Spy books. They will sit for quite awhile and find anything you ask them to. They concentrate and really stare at the page until they gladly point it out. So smart!

Cupcake Party!

We met a group of friends in Manhattan Beach this weekend for "Uncle Matt's" birthday. It was definitely a sign of where we are all in life... half of the couples were pregnant or with a baby in tow. So much fun!

One of Tony's friend's wives was opening a cupcake shop the same night, so we stopped there first for the open house. It is the cutest little shop in Manhattan called Cupcake Couture. They had miniature "couture" cupcakes in all flavors, fresh flavored strawberry and chocolate milk, and trays of fresh berries. Could it get any better? We stopped by at about 7 and I hadn't eaten since lunch... needless to say the babies were hungry. So we solved our problem with every flavor of cupcake offered, milk, and berries! Delicious! About an hour later while sitting at the dinner table I started to feel some little kicks and rolls going on inside. I had felt maybe one little kick here and there for the last 3 days, but nothing I was sure about. There was no question! There was a cupcake party going on in there for about 15 minutes. It was so fun to feel them move, and even funnier knowing it was because they were loaded up with sugar. Oh well, we know they're "Hensleys" and like their sweets :0)

Just One

Just 1 week down, many more to go. I made it a week at work with no problems! It was actually a very easy transition back and I enjoyed spending time with the kids. I am sitting as much as possible during the school day and have been feeling great! Let's hope it keeps up (at least for another month or two).

I was greeted by one student Monday morning with this conversation:

student: You're back! Did you have your babies?

me: Nope, not for awhile.

student: Oh, so you had just one?

me: ::pause:: Ummmm, nope.
