I've been wanting to paint my bathroom for a long time, and finally, a few days ago, I went over to my mom's and stole some old paint from her so I could just get it done. After putting the first coat on, and then putting it off for a few days because I didn't want to go back to painting, it's finally done!! So it's not the bathroom of my dreams, at least it's not as ugly as it was before. It used to be half blue, like royal blue, and half white. Wasn't pretty. I'm happy with it. It feels good to have at least one thing that I want to get done before the babies get here done!
Next I have a couple picturse of my girl. She love love loves corn on the cob. It's hillarious to watch her eat it. I swear this kid can clean an ear of corn faster then I can. I couldn't help but take a couple pictures.

I walked into Avery's room this morning while she was still sleeping, and had to get this picture. She's been doing this the last couple of weeks, sticking her feet out of the crib. It cracks me up. I think she's just like her dad that way. Chad likes to stick his feet out the end of the bed and hates for them to be covered by blankets at all. The ball above her head is this glow ball that she's had for a long time, it's basically her night light. Good thing she won't be in the crib too much longer lol.

Yup! Chad and I are having twins. I know, I'm still a little shocked myself. We're super excited, still trying to get used to the idea, but we are really excited. Please keep us in your prayers that the babies stay strong and healthy. They look really good right now!! There is always a small possibility with twins that I could go into premature labor, and that I may have to go on bed rest, which is not at all what I want! But as long as those kids are healthy we'll all be happy. We still aren't going to find out the sex of the baby, oops.. babies! So now we have to come up with two girl names and two boy names. And although my due date is going to stay at January 24th, I will definitely not make it there. Dr. tells us that most women pregnant with twins will go into labor on their own at 36-37 weeks, and that he won't let me go past 38 weeks. So it looks like we're going to end up with a couple early January or even late December babies. Here are some face pictures of the two kiddos.
So, there ya go. I can't believe it myself. It's amazing. After getting over the initial shock of it all, all I could do was just thank God for giving us two more blessings. What a great gift!

I know you are all dieing to see him, so here he is!!! Elijah Scott Isley, born 10:18 am Sept. 9th, 9lb 12oz, 20.5" long. He's doing pretty good. They did have to keep him in the nursery, and probably will overnight tonight because his blood sugar is a tad low and his color was a bit on the purplish side when he was born. If you're wondering what that big bandage is on his left hand, that's where they put his IV in for his blood sugar. He's bright pink now, and his blood sugar is doing great. Katy is doing fine, but stressed about not being able to be with him 24/7, but that'll all change tomorrow. So keep them all in your prayers! Her are a few pictures of big sis with her new little brother. I think he looks a lot like Gracie and Joey, so basically another Mike baby!

I know this sounds silly, but last night I was praying because we've got all this stuff we have to get done before the baby comes. It seems like there is no way we are going to have enough money to get those things and now having to think about buying a new computer, well.. it was stressing me out. So this afternoon I come over to the computer and I thought, what the heck, I'll give it a shot. After 5 days of it not wanting to turn on, and I did try every single day, for some reason it just decided it would work. THANK YOU GOD! It's just one thing we don't have to worry about.
It's been a while since I've put pictures up, so I've combined 3 blogs into one. The first pictures are those from our vacation. We went to my grandparent's cabin on Rimrock. It was a blast. Avery loves throwing rocks in the water. The picture where she is crying is after she fell in the creek. I'm sure that water was freezing, but I couldn't resist taking a picture.
Then there are pictures of last weekend. My cousins came over for a visit from Spokane (Liberty Lake). Angie and Ben Abshire and their 4 beautiful kids. Their daughter Sarah is close to the same age as Avery, so it was fun watching them play. And of course they all loved the slip n' slide.
Last but not least, my kitten had her kittens today. Our cat is almost a year old. We were definitely not planning on her having kittens, but it happened. Of course, since we didn't really want kittens, she had to go and have 6!! Well, 6 so far. I'm pretty sure she's done, but it's hard to tell. She's doing really good though, and the kittens are adorable. Super tiny! If you want a cat let me know lol.
So that's that for now. I'm sorry I haven't kept up very well, but I swear something is always going wrong with this dang computer!! Thanks for the comments on earlier blogs. At least I knwo there are people who want to keep up with my family :).

UGH, I'm sorry to have to tell everyone this, again..., but I have no computer. A couple of days ago I left my windows open and went over to my mom's house for a little bit. The wind picked up and when I got back home the wind had knocked over my boquet of flowers I got for my anniversary right onto my computer. SO, there was water everywhere, and the computer won't even start. Anyway, We will have a new computer, but who knows when. Hopefully I can borrow my sister's until we have a computer, but I'm not sure our hardrive, which I think was salvaged, will work in it. So, that is why I have not been blogging. It seems like something is always going wrong with our computer/internet lol. I'll still be checking everyone else's whenever I can get to a computer.
