Why do I do this?

Ok so after making 350 shirts do you think I could take a night off? Oh no I plan a jewelry party tonight.

I love the jewelry! You really do get lots of stuff free and discounted when you have a show. But I am so TIRED!!!!!

Anyway, Kati and Kimi, I will probably use your names for a few pre show orders. If I have $100 before the show, then I get $25 free jewelry. If I have a $400 show it will double to $50. I will also earn $25 in free jewelry for having it on the original date which I am. That will also double if I have a $400 show. If I have 10 people over 18 I get $25 which will double and if three people sign up to have a show same deal. I doubt I hit the other two so I thought it would be worth $50 free to go ahead and use your names and order some of the stuff I want. So thanks in advance for the use of your names! :)

I will post back later and let you know how it went!

Sorry guys I meant to post this on my blog. It shouldn't be hear taking up space. I didn't end up having to use either of your names because a friends mom wanted some stuff and it added up to over $100 so I used it for my presale. I got a total of $592 (19 pieces) of jewelry for $168! Yeah!!! For more details go to my blog www.bengiann.blogspot.com .

Baby Bets

Lets guess the sex of the babies. Its approximately 3 to 4 weeks before the sex is found out by the respective ultra sounds. I think Kati is now pretty much leaning towards finding out.

1st Practice!

It was a success! From what we can remember! We have great parents and everyone was excited. Ten 3 and 4 year old, their siblings, parents, grandparents a mass confusion at all times. No seriously Brandon had three stations set up we had parents helping in two, so it went well. Most importantly the kids had fun! They were troupers, even though an 1.5 hour practice. I have great expectation for a fun filled season. I had intentions of taking pictures but that didn't happen.
Bengi - I need some ideas to keep all the kids stuff organized in the dugout. Kimi you are welcome to suggest too just figured the experience sports mom might have a few ideas : )

The Third! Who has time?

I know I am the worst parent ever! I have my pic at school and I just keep forgetting to scan it. It is not a great picture but I will try to get it done. I will put it on my springbreak list! Glad that you got to see/hear heartbeat and everything is going well. I am looking forward to starting to feel better, I hope sooner than later. Not enjoying being to fat for regular clothes! Been tired this week, and crapping - more constipated than anything else. FUN!!!!!

No 2nd-Child-Syndrome Here...yet!

I'm posting ANOTHER ultrasound pic, in hopes this will FINALLY prompt a post of Brandon & Kati's ultrasound.

I had my first visit back with my regular OB-GYN, and they did a quick in-office ultrasound, just for fun. :) The picture isn't great, but we just wanted to see the heartbeat and got to see our little peanut moving around! She wants to take an ultra-conservative approach & continue the progesterone through the end of the first trimester (2 more weeks), which isn't a big deal, but I was looking forward to stopping them this week. She said my "real" ultrasound will be around 16 weeks, and I can hardly wait to find out the gender!!

Oh - I titled this post as such because at this point we have 4x the pictures of Cade! I know, I know, it is sure to catch up with me when we have our hands full with both of our little bundles of joy...it is just such a precious, fleeting time, I hope to really cherish each moment & video- or photo-op.

I've also published our new baby page on chadandkimi.com:

Coach St.John????????

In February of 2009 Brady St John was signed up for his inaugural debut in T-Ball, which starts on March 28th. Daddy St John signed up to be an assistant coach. Sounded fun and I want to learn together with my son. Daddy St John was called today 03-08-09 and informed that I would need to pick up my packet for my team (Indians). I have no idea what the hell I am doing, but I figure it will be an adventure that I cannot refuse to do. When I went to pick up my packet, I was really trying to figure out why my team could not adopt the name *Bears* (Get it Bad News Bears). Yes, I wanted to share my story with you guys, but I also wanted to offer advice: These little things as shared above are the little things that I know if I had not took on this I would be regretting it a few years down the road.
