Happy 4th of July

Day 47 of hospital bed rest

I'm proud to say the bear is FINISHED!!  It took me about 2 hours to finish up the last of the outlining.  It really did take up a good chunk of the last few weeks :)  I'm very thankful Ray taught me how to cross stitch! I really love it now!!

I went through JP's Pre-K school paperwork this afternoon.  Being the mom (like most of you know), it's my job to fill everything out.  I still can't believe he's gonna be 3 next month and starting school in September.  Then, I started on the first bib pack S got.  I got a good chunk started and maybe will finish it tomorrow.  It took a little bit to get used to the different needle since it's actually pointy & hurts vs. my blunt needle that I used on the bear.  At 5pm, I was suprised when the boys walked through the door!  They made it here in 15 minutes even on the holiday!  Ray brought me a bunch of goodies including a thimble (YAY for my poor index finger), Mio fruit punch (he just thought I would like it because he loves it -- it is GREAT), & some other "secret" things for me to make for the babies ;-) After he showed me everything, we went straight down to the cafeteria because we were all hungry!  I actually saw a guy wearing a Milwaukee Brewers shirt!!  He never got close enough, so I could talk to him about it.  I did see his girlfriend walk out of the bathroom on our way up to the garden, so I just asked her LOL!  He was from Muskego HAHA which isn't far from my hometown of Kenosha.  I told her to tell him a lady from Kenosha says HI and GO BREWERS!!  When we got up to garden it was just us.  We were just talking, etc.  Then, I see this worker from the hospital (w/my mom hawk eyes) come outside and bring this "thing" up to his mouth.  Immediately, I knew he was SMOKING! On the door to the courtyard it is CLEARLY written NO smoking.  I was just staring at him waiting for him to look me in the eyes.  Then, I went off on him!  This is what I said... " Excuse me!  Yea I see you smoking over there.  I am pregnant and have a 3 year old with me so please kill yourself on your on time. Not to mention the door clearly reads NO SMOKING.  If I ever see you again you will lose your job!" Immediately he stomped it out and ran inside.  You mess w/JP and the twins you will get the horns from this mama bull! Ray told JP that's why you don't mess w/mommy!  Then, we just continued talking while I was enjoying being outdoors for a bit longer.  I was really hoping they were going to stay for the fireworks tonight but alas, JP took no nap.  They did look so cute in their american flag shirts & camo shorts -- twins AGAIN!  I was just happy they were able to come up to see me.  Well it's almost time to get wheeled upstairs w/the other ante partum ladies to see the fireworks.....

Until Tomorrow,

Whitney & The Twins
