We made it another day!

So, last week was crazy!  We had the big yard sale for the Park and made $400 (which was very exciting)!  So, we're up to somewhere around $900!  Woohoo!  Maybe the Silent Auction will be super good for us too!  One of my friends from the Park Group very very kindly gave me all of her maternity clothes!  The amazing thing was how many of them were my size!  And my style (can you say bohemian?)!  I now have at least 30 outfits that I can mix and match.  Awesome!  It absolutely makes up for how much I've put into our Park so far!  The day after that the kids and I went up to Olathe to do some serious baby stuff shopping!  I only had half of Saturday and managed to get a cradle swing for $5.  The motor doesn't work, which doesn't matter at my house, since I have the power of hyper children!  I got an Arm's Reach Co-Sleeper for $25 (I've already got it cleaned and set up in my room).  Then I got everything she'll possibly need for the first three months (knock on wood) thanks to the sale up there and another friend who oh so kindly gave me her baby's clothes that she's outgrown!  I also bought a travel swing from her for $20.  So, I'm feeling very ready for the end of December!  I keep telling her (and anyone that asks) that she can't come until after finals.  Preferably on the first of January (because what a cool date that would be) or the week before (tax deduction and I'd have longer to recover before the next semester started)!  I really don't care as long as it's after all of mine and Scott's finals.  The cool thing is that I can totally walk to the hospital.  I hope it's a good hospital! 
In the meanwhile, I'm getting significantly bigger.  Which is making Leah look like she has saddle legs (Is that what it's called?).  Poor baby!  Scott and I started dating again last week (thanks to a friend from church and school)!  She's her every other day doing homework with me, so the kids were already used to her and she doesn't charge much ($6 an hour)!  I'm looking forward to tomorrow night, since we have 2 options.  Woohoo!  Fun times, fun times!
