Crazy Quiet....For a moment

Things have been really quiet around our house this weekend. My amazing mom took Mya and Tay on Thursday. I was running on empty and in desperate need of some major rest. It has been soo nice/weird. It is so nice just being able to get up in the morning and only have to clean the house once and it stays clean ALL DAY! It is amazing! No little fingerprints, cracker crumbs, toys everywhere, Mya's little treasures strung throughout the house, and only having to get me and little Lexie ready for the day is a breeze, but man it is boring around here.
I am soo glad my mom is sweet enough to take my two crazy kids so I could recuperated but I am missing them. They come back tomorrow and I can't wait to see them. Even though it is nice to be able to sleep when the baby sleeps and not have to clean a bazillion times a day it is too quiet around here. Micah and I don't know what to do with ourselves today. We are pretty bored without the little munchkins running around. I can't wait to see them tomorrow.
Thanks mom for taking the kids. It was just what I needed to get some rest and recover from having little Lexie.

Hi Julie! Lexie is so beautiful! So hard to believe you could have 3 little ones! It was so cute in church today. Your dad was saying the opening prayer and one of them, I think Tay, was calling, "Grandpa! Grandpa!" Couldn't help but smile.

Thanks for letting me keep up with your sweet family.

Big hugs from Lyman.

Congrats on your sweet baby girl! She looks beautiful! Good job going all natural too. Did you do that with Mya & Tay? Boy, I'm not brave enough for that! By the way, I know you probably have your hands full, but I remember a while back reading that you were looking for some new books to read. My sister lent me some, and I just finished them, so if you're bored, let me know and I'll bring them over!

Oh Lexie is so cute! Congratulations you guys! I loved your little letter you wrote to her. Everything in it is so true and perfect! Can't wait to see her.

I think this having just one baby is great. She is asleep the house is clean and it is so quiet. More kids is going to seem crazy. I am glad you got a break

I felt the same way when my MIL took Zoie for visits. She's offered to take both kids for 10 days so we can work on the house, but I can't let my baby (yes, I know he's almost two) be gone for that long.
