We signed Andrew up for taekwondo. He is really enjoying it so far. Here's a pic of him in his uniform.

What's Cookin'

Back to meal planning! We've had some delicious meals from friends and family the last few weeks, but I feel ready to get into the swing of things again, plus I still have a bunch of freezer meals that I made before Aaron was born.
Tues and Wed are busy evenings for our family since Andrew has started taekwondo, plus he has softball Wed evening (only for a few more weeks), so I'm trying to keep things very simple those nights. We'll see how next week goes!

Mon~PW's Pasta Primavera with grilled chicken and fruit
Tues~Grilled hot dogs, chips, carrots
Wed~Taco Bell (Andrew's request)
Thurs~Grilled pork tenderloin, green beans, wild rice
Fri~Tacos, salad
Sat~Pizza (frozen or Jet's)
Sun~Leftovers or pea soup from the freezer

Cheapest Diapers Ever

$1.68 for a 42 count package of size 2 Pampers Baby Dry.

I had a code for Medco Health store online for $10 off any purchase. Shipping was only 99 cents. And today I had a package of diapers delivered to my front door!

Little brothers stick together

I love having 4 boys!

Uh Oh

May be a rough night. The swing just died. :-(

Pics from the last few days

Uncle Nate meets his 4th nephew for the first time. Not real sure about holding a newborn, but he did great!

Joel loves his new brother! They will be best buds.

Baby Aaron's first time in his cradle that great-Grandpa Roffel made. Last night he slept in his swing so mommy could try get a little more rest. He went 3 and a half hours in between feedings instead of 2 so we may try that again! :-)
I've been trying to get rest so I heal quickly. We've had lots of help from family and friends which we are so thankful for! I am also thankful for the spring-like weather, was not crazy about the 80 plus degree temps a couple of weeks ago. And if you see Chris gaining weight, its because we've had so many great dinners brought to us the last few days! Super delicious! Thanks so much to everyone who has helped us.

Blessed be the name of the LORD from this time forth and for evermore.
Psalm 113:2
