Slowing down?

(why does Blogger mess up my spacing ALL THE TIME? Ughhhh!)

I wish things were about to slow down for us...but that is just not the case.

We had a delightful Christmas break but spent a lot of time working around our house. It was tiring.
We have completely rearranged our living room (possible pics to follow, my camera is not cooperating with me right now), rearranged our bedroom, moved out a toddler bed and moved in a twin-sized bed into Nora's room and had to rearrange everything in there too (no diapers, no paci, adult bed in her room...sniff, I might as well start packing her bags for overnight church camp, she's all grown up), moved a few things in Nora's room into Elyn's room so this weekend means we will be moving her furniture around also.
Parts of our house look like we have just moved in and other parts are completely put back together. At this point in the process I am tired of finding new homes for lamps/picture frames/knick knacks/etc. I'm tempted to throw it all away.
But I won't because I am practical.
I should be finding nooks to place my knick knacks but I'm sitting on the couch, listening to my husband cheer for Florida and blogging. A girl needs a break!
My mom was here this week. She came Monday and left today. She was a huge help in decorating. She also was the photographer since my camera is not speaking to me right now.

We start our college classes again next week. Matthew teaches for Harding on Monday nights and is taking a class from University of Arkansas on Tuesday/Thursday nights. I am teaching for Harding on Tuesday/Thursday nights. Thankfully, we will only need a babysitter for about and hour and a half during that time.
Life is about to pick up speed. My "baby" turns 3 next month, which I find impossible. Slow down time, you go too fast.

I can't believe she is going to be 3! I had to read it twice to make sure I read it correctly. Where did that time go? I can't wait to see the new house arragement and hope you are having a great week.

I love the last photo pf Elyn. She looks so grown up. Also, I do not want to admit it, but I got a little choked up thinking about my Nug turning 3. I love you.
