Veggie Tales: Playing Catch up

(or should it be Ketchup?)
I must admit that I spent much of last week vegging.
A combination of exhaustion, disorientation and lack of motivation.
Often times lists of things I should/could be doing going through my mind but none of them roosting long enough to get me up and going long enough to finish anything (as you may have noticed)

It's been a strange week.

I am still trying to unravel the mysteries getting graduation pictures from my kids cameras to post on my blog. The sheer magnitude of pictures to go through overwhelms me at times and for some reason my computer is extremely slow downloading them.

I did manage however to finish some crib sheets for Olivia and I will finish her carseat cover today so Aaron and Celisa can use it when they bring her home this evening.

Yes, that's another blog I will have to brave the unknown for to post pictures for.

Olivia Diane Zimbelman
joined our family on Friday May 1st at about 8:45 pm.
She is 8 lbs 8 oz and 19 inches long.

Celisa endured labor well and I understand that Aaron was a great support to her.
Induction often seems to be a little more challenging.

Olivia is beautiful.

She is a calm, sweet baby. She loves to stretch and will lay unwrapped with both legs sticking straight up in a "V". She constantly moves her arms and legs all over and hardly ever startles herself. She is so strong and when you hold her on your shoulder she lifts her head to look all around although her eyes are not open a lot at this point. Celisa is doing well but both she and Aaron are suffering from sleep deprivation. Hopefully having Celisa's mom here for a week will help with that (and hopefully I can also provide some assiatance too).

Racing season is also up and going. The kids and I have driven wheel support on the last two Saturdays and have assisted with more flats in the past two races than all other times combined. Both Saturdays were rainy and wet and Mark won both races!

Disclaimer: I'm not in any way suggesting that the combination is "THE winning combination"

We began to get bids to get the concrete work finished in the back yard...
among other projects...

Hmmm even though I feel unorganized, maybe I haven't been as unproductive as I thought.

BUT I will post pictures very soon, maybe even today if I can get ready for scones, Bishop's fireside and get my letter to Elder Rob sent off quickly...

don't give up on me.

Of course, congratulations on the baby. Fun to hear you were able to finish those last projects just as she made her entrance.
