it's been a while

Wow, I haven't been good at posting the last couple of weeks.  So, here it goes. I'll do better!  I guess I will start by telling you that DeAnna was found safe!  Like my earlier post said, she went missing this past Sunday night, but was found on Tuesday.  Thank you for your prayers!  I know her family is overjoyed to have her back home safely.  
Next up, Easter!  We had a great Easter weekend.  John's parents, Joe and Peggy, or Papa Joe and Nana, came down from California to spend the holiday with us.  We had a great time.  Joe loved having his grandparents here to play with.  He had some new buddies to play outside with, which he enjoyed so much.  John had good Friday off, so it was so great to have him home an extra day for the weekend.  We went to the Zoo on Friday.  Joe wasn't so interested this time.  I blame it on the fact that he was coming down with a cold and was already getting tired by the time we got there.  We petted some animals, and rode the train.  I think we all had a pretty good time.  Saturday was a pretty low key day.  John and I both needed some rest.  The previous week I was sick, so i was worn out, and I know John was worn out from having to help me more than usual.  Easter Sunday was awesome!  We went to church in the morning and had a great service.  Afterwards, we headed to my mom's house for our traditional Easter lunch.  Just about all of the family was there.  Joe had a blast hunting Easter eggs.  He did a great job, and he has been hunting eggs around the house ever since.  I will post some Easter pictures of him as soon as i get the camera charged!  
Anyways, it is always great to spend time with family.  And, we are so thankful that Peggy and Joe got to come and spend some time with us.  They headed back to California on Monday, and it has been just a normal week so far.  Joe has been as busy as ever.  Playing hard and getting in to everything.  He's got some new dance moves which John filmed last night.  If I can figure out how to post a video, I will certainly do that on here.  I love my little buddy, and I am just trying to soak up the time that i have left with just him.  It won't be long until Noah gets here.  I believe we have about 7 weeks if he doesn't come early....which I have a feeling he will.  I have absolutely no more room left for him to keep growing!  
(**John, we MUST put the crib together this weekend!**)
Not a lot going on these days.  Joe and I went to the grocery store this morning.  Publix has the nicest, most helpful staff than any grocery store I have ever been to.  I didn't have to load the groceries on the belt at the check out station, or take them to my car and load them.  They did it all for me.  And they are always so nice to Joe.  They speak to him, show him the live lobsters, give him coloring books and crayons, etc.   By far, my favorite place to shop.  And Leanne, we know you love them for the free cookies. I guess you look under 12 :)   
I go to the doctor on Monday, so I will be sure to post any updates!  On Monday I will be 33 1/2 weeks pregnant.  Craziness.  
Hope you all have a great day! Yay! It's almost the weekend!!!

Free cookies are where it's atttttt. We don't have Publix here, so next time I come home, that will be the first place I go for sure. Miss y'all :-)
