I am writing strictly for the sake of randomly rambling and I will totally understand if you read none of this...

So what's new? Kaylee is a little chunker! All the sudden she is just THICK :-) She has reached an age where she understands that she can cry to get picked up and it's really irritating.

Living with Shauna has been really quite nice. We usually have dinner made every night by the time the boys get home. It's fun to be a house wife when you have someone to do it with :-) We are probably moving back to our condo after this semester is over. We are really looking forward to being back in our own place with a little more room for all our junk, but we will definitely miss a lot of things about being here. Someone else paying our mortgage, having someone to split all the housework with, having a built in babysitter, having Ryan's work be only 10 minutes away instead of 40, having comcast on demand workouts...

Chelsie's website is consistently getting tons of hits which is good. Obviously that will spike when the show premiers and hopefully we will get enough sales in her store to break even on some of the money we've put into the site.

We really want to pay off my school loans quickly and yet we have a lot of potential vacations coming which cost money not save it... CA to see Chelsie if she stays on for a while. CA for a family reunion this summer. CA for the rose parade possibly, Alabama to see Chason and Brooke's new life if possible. I would also like to do something fun for our anniversary this year. I also want to make a lot of improvements to the condo once we move back in. So what is most important to me... ?

I wonder how many people are on board with my decision to take care of my family and leave education behind for a while and how many people think I should have been more successful at finishing now. I don't know if or when I will finish school and if I do I do not know where I will finish school or what in. It bothers me to not know what my plan is because I am a planner.

I've had a sinus infection forever now and it causes daily headaches. It is totally annoying!

That's all I can think of that's gong on right now but if anyone cares to comment on my random ramblings I will be really surprised :-)

Well, we do care! And we hope you feel better soon! I'm happy that you are all wrapped up in your new life of motherhood! Don't consider it an end to your education, because continuing at a latter time is always a HUGE possibility! I enjoy going back to school for classes now and then. Its amazing how many units add up without really noticing. Plus a few night classes here and there don't interrupt your precious time with babies! I'm happy that Paul understood I was attending school mostly for my M.R.S. degree. (LOL) and he supports my education for personal enrichment purposes. Anyhow, just wanted to let you know that you aren't the only one who has postponed things. I truly believe our greatest responsibility is to be home taking care of our children the best we can!

Sorry if I rambled to much! Chelsie's site looks great! And I hope you post more pics of sweet baby Kaylee soon!

I love that Kaylee is getting chunky! I think she is so adorable! Hey, I tried to finish school with a family and I got my associates and for now, I'm done. I think everyone will do what is best for them. Do what you feel like you need to do! It'll all work out in the end. I get so many sinus infections! I hate them, so I'm sorry you are dealing with that! If you guys end up having some left over money after all those fun trips and things you want to do, you should definitely head out our way ; ) Keep updating your blog! Its the only way we can see what is going on!! Love and miss you all!

Lol, that was random Stace, but I liked reading about what's going on in your life! I didn't know that you were planning on moving back to your place...I'm sure you and Shauna have been a big help to each other! I hear you about wanting to pay off loans quickly but then knowing that you have other things that you want/need to put your money towards! I'm excited to see you guys this summer!!! I think that for now it's fine taking a break with school if it's what you need, because ultimately it is your decision! You'll have to post pics of Kaylee so that we can see how big she's gotten! Love ya cuz!!!
