40 random facts about me :)

All is well with the Harrison's. Jeremy and I leave tomorrow afternoon for a day/night away together. We haven't had a night away from the kids since before Ethan was born. My mom is watching them during the day and my sister is coming over to be with them the rest of the day and sleepover. We are going to the marriage retreat with our church. We'll only be a half hour away but having an entire 24 hours alone together will be such a special treat! We plan to have lunch at our favorite restaurant in Canton....maybe see a movie in the afternoon and then meet up with some friends that night for dinner. Then Saturday morning is the marriage conference for a few hours and my pastor and his wife will be speaking. It should be a great time and a much needed getaway for my hubby and I. Can't wait to spend lots of time with him :)

The kids are doing well. They've been healthy most of the winter and I'm so thankful. Ethan will be 3 on Monday, it's really hard to believe. I feel it was just yesterday we brought him home from the hospital and now he's gonna be 3! We're celebrating this Sunday with the family at Safari Playground...an indoor playground that is newly built that is our favorite spot to hang out during the cold winters. In fact, I took the kids this morning with some friends - it was great :) I'm looking forward to celebrating 3 wonderful years with my boy...he's so precious and melts my heart.

Gracelyn is 4 months away from turning 2...I can't believe how fast these little ones are growing up. I cherish each day with them so much and adore them to pieces. I think daily how they simply are the cutest little people on the planet and can't believe they're mine. What cute babies my hubby and I make :) The little one in my belly seems to be doing good, thank you Jesus! I'm 10.5 weeks and baby is the size of a prune :) I can't wait for another month or two to pass so that I can start feeling the baby kick....it's always so amazing!

Well, that's all for now folks...enjoy the weekend :)

Much Love,
Momma Keri ♥

Love the list! It's so fun to hear all of those things about you. Some I knew, a lot I didn't.

Oooo man, I am SO excited that you get to have a night/day away with your hubs! YAY! We haven't gone away together in......ugh like 3.5 years or so. We were just joking last night that we should take off this weekend when our babysitter comes over. Ha! Anyway, have a wonderful time. Are you getting chinese food? Pepper steak perhaps?
