I've always said that to get my house exactly the way I want it (clean, that is) I need to be pregnant, cause that's when I do the nitty gritty cleaning and organizing. Well, here I am 37 1/2 weeks pregnant and planning to deliver our final baby in 6 days and my house is totally in order!! So, so, so happy have everything done!!! It feels awesome! I can't stand clutter and messes, so my house isn't usually very bad. But when I clean weekly, I don't pull out all the furniture and dust every nook and cranny. Even at this point, please don't come to my house with a white glove!!
Now, to just keep everything in order for the next few days! Monday and Tuesday will be the crazy days of mopping all the floors and making sure every last stitch of clothing is washed and put away in it's proper place and grocery shopping. My girls have been, surprising, good lately at picking up their toys and not making too many huge messes.
Although, today, Kallie was a bit of a tornado with the toy box in their room. Normally, I help them clean up their toys and such but this mama is just getting too BIG to bend over and pick stuff up! So I told her she needed to clean up her toy box before going to bed and left the room. I came back a few minutes later to a perfectly clean floor with all the toys picked up and lid on the box! I was proud of her!! (She isn't know for picking up her toys...she usually lets big sister do the work and she watches) I guess all the 'correcting' has paid off and she is now a big girl too and is perfectly able to do her share! Thank the Lord!!

I will try to get some good pictures of the nursery posted on here tomorrow. 'Try' is the keyword!! Then Saturday, we have a wedding to attend and Sunday, Paul is preaching at a neighboring church. Monday, the inlaws are coming, Tuesday, I go for my Amnio, and Wednesday.....(drum roll) we will welcome Baby K!!!

When I read your blog and/or status updates.. I just cant keep up.. I dont know how you do it. I like to be a neat freak too, but for some reason you seem to outdo me EVERY TIME:)

Im excited for you..I thought at one point, you said you wanted 4 children..
3 beautiful girls is sufficient enough.. as I know about that!

Trust all goes well with "Lil' K."
