Pedi and a Mani

Sarah has been begging for months to go and get a pedicure and a manicure with me. We finally found the time today and since I can't reach my toes any more it works out well for me too. We go to this new little place down the road from us. We were the only two people in the spa for the first 45 minutes. We had just finished our pedi's and were about to move to the manicure table when in walks 20 men. It was quite the entrance. They more then filled up the place. I'm thinking surely they can't be here for the same reason we are. They weren't, they were a TV show crew and they were scouting the place out to film a new show coming out on cable. It was pretty interesting though to watch them measure and discuss buisness while sitting there having your nails painted. So after we finish up I slip my shoes on thinking that my nails had dried enough. They had not and I completly ruined 8 of my fingers. I wanted to cry, I was to embarresed to tell the lady so I go up the the counter to pay and when I signed the reciept she says, what happened? I had to explain to her and she says, you sit down I fix it for you. While she was fixing it (for free) she asked why I didn't tell her they were ruined and I said it was my fault and she says I should have told her. Then commands me to sit under the blower for 5 minutes and stay there. I obeyed. Sarah got a decoration on each big toe and each thumb as part of the kid deal. She loved it. Hers are the orange toes and light pink fingers. There is one draw back to having this done though, it makes you want to go back again and again.

Quiet Moment

This is one of those moments that melts your heart as a mom. Sarah is reading to the boys. I love how they are sucking their thumbs and Ethans head is resting on her shoulder. Ten minutes after this photo was taking they were all wrestling on the ground. But it sure was nice while it lasted.

Ticker update

For those of you who really keep track of the baby ticker you might have notice it went backwards a bit. My original due date was Jan. 18, but then when I had the first ultrasound the tech said the due date was Jan. 13. So that is the date I set the ticker with. But then my midwife said that the due date is still the 18th unless the ultrasound says more that a week different. But that still doesn't mean I can't deliver a couple weeks early, my fingers are crossed.
