I havent done this in so long!

I think I am going to try to be better about writing stuff in my blog. Just to keep my family and friends updated on our life. We have going to the pool for swim lessons a lot, with Jacks friend Will and his mom and little brother Jackson. Its been really nice because it helps the days go by faster since being pregnant tends to make the days drag. I have found myself praying a lot more and trying to find more quite time to spend with God. Its really helping me grow spiritually. We have cut out TV completely. It has been hard but I think in the long run it is going to be better for the kids. Jack has slowly stopped asking as much. They have a new chore chart on the fridge, which they get stickers for doing their jobs. This has been great fun for them, and it has helped me keep the bedrooms clean. Jack thinks its great to help and to get stickers. Josie gets one for brushing her teeth. She likes the cat stickers. I have been going to the doctor once a week so they have been with Jamie a lot. My visit with the doctor this week was great though. I don't have to go back for 2 weeks and everything was looking good. So, that was a huge answer to prayer. Now, we just have to get through the next few weeks and try to name this baby girl. Please any suggestions would be nice!

Working at the Car Wash

I took Jack and Josie to the car wash the other day. ( since we are getting a van) It was really a site to see. The kids were really funny. Josie at first was a little worried but Jack told her "don't worry Josie its ok, Jacks here" so then she was fine. When we left they wanted to go back right away. It was a fun trip.

Here we go again!!!

I am pregnant! I cant believe it, well yes I can. I am going to have 3 babies. We are all thinking its going to be a boy, except Jack he think its a boy and a girl. Which we are going to name Dora and Diego. Can you imagine Diego Arsenault :)? Uncle Lawson has also given his ideas of what the name should be. If only I could remember them. They are so crazy I cant remember. I have felt a little sick lately but it is fine as long as I eat a cracker or something. I am really going to try not to get as fat this time. I really want to stay in shape so maybe all my friends can keep me motivated. Although I just took a 3 hour nap with my kids. I guess my body needed the rest. Anyways so here I am mama of 3!!!!! yippee. Its going to be a crazy ride. I just pray God gives me lots of patience with my other children durning this ride. I want to be a good mom and I know that means remaining patient even when times a hard. I have faith :)

What we did on our date...

So we ended up going to the movies. We saw Rambo. I suggested a movie but the only thing playing at the time we could go- was Rambo. John was supposed to see it with his guy friends the other night but it was sold out so they saw There will be Blood. Anyways, it definitely wasn't romantic. It had alot of blood and killing (hints Rambo). Not really a girl movie. Although I'm sure some girls like this stuff (not me). I thought the movie was well done, almost to well done. When you are watching people die and it seems so real it just makes me sad. I cant imagine things like that in the world happening. It reminded me of Blood Diamond and Tears of the Sun. Two movies I like but always feel very helpless when I am done watching. Rambo wasn't as good as those movies. It had a few cheezie one liners. I don't want to ruin the ending but I thought they could have added a little more for a female audience. Anyways all in all I had a nice time with John and I got to get dressed up for my hubby. :) Maybe when it gets warmer I can be more creative with cheap fun dates. I'm ready for warm weather so we can play tennis. Have a great day guys!

Tonight Johns sister Leslie is coming over to watch the kids so John and I can go on a date. Well, as I was trying to think of something to do without spending a lot of money I realized I had no ideas. Its cold outside so we cant really walk outside. Plus, movies and eating out will kill the bank. So does anyone have any creative ideas for us??

New blog!

Hi, I am very excited about this new blog thing. Well I guess its not new but to the Arsenault household it is. I have seen my friend Addies blog and also Kelly and Alinas so I thought I would give it a try. All I need is another thing to do while Jack and Josie get into everything! Talk to you soon... Anna
