On another happy note our house is starting to look like Christmas! The stockings are hung, the lights are starting to go up, and in our van we now only play Christmas music. Yes I love Christmas! It was one of my favorite memories as a child. It was the one day out of the year we all got along for at least 4 hours straight =).
So I will be working very hard the next few weeks getting the house ready for our family that is coming to visit, baking cookies, figuring out Christmas dinner, etc. I will post pictures soon =).
Have a good week all!!

~Lets just start off with my husband thinking he was having a heart attack. That was very scary but I am happy to say after an overnight stay in the hospital it turns out that he just had a severe case of heartburn. Then my porcelain on my crown chipped off my tooth (did I mention it just happened to chip off into my gums) which then = paying the dentist 500+ for it to be repaired, our kids were both sick.
~So with all of my complaining over with the bright side is that my husbands recent stress test went well they said his heart was healthy, My new crown will be in, in a couple of weeks, The kids are both now well and feisty as ever!
~ Isn't it funny how some times when we are in the moment things may not seem like they will get better, but then they do and we are thanking God that they did. I am realizing I need to thank God even when things are not so great, that some times we may not get what we ask for but the Lord knows just what we need.

~So some of you guessed correctly! We made a Blueberry Pie! It was so yummy and was gone within 24 hours. I am kind of proud of my first blueberry pie and my kiddos of course ate it without any arguing!
Look Ma no hands!
~We also washed and froze a bunch so we could make blueberry pancakes! My hubby loves to make breakfast on the weekends so he made some blueberry pancakes so I could show you all how good they look!
~We made chocolate covered blueberries. However there is no picture because I was to busy eating them to worry about such a thing. Plus we made a lot of muffins! We made blueberry, blueberry banana, blueberry banana chocolate chip and blueberry chocolate chip. I think I have gained five pounds since we went blueberry picking =).
~Last but not least we made blueberry jam! Also a first in the Hart household. It was so easy and is so good. I know I keep saying that these things are all good but how can you go wrong with blueberries?!
~I hope you all enjoyed Blueberry Extravaganza! I also wanted to say hello to all of you who have decided to follow our blog! It has been fun so far and I am excited to learn more about blogging as time goes by. Hope you all had a great Labor Day!

~Why is this you ask. Well when I had my first ultrasound we found out a few scary things. My husband was on his way home from a TDY (temporary duty) and the doctor called to tell me our son would have Down Syndrome. No the Dr. did not ask me to come in to talk, he asked me if I was sitting down and then proceeded to tell me over a telephone conversation my bouncing baby boy was going to be sick. I was devastated.
~THE BIG DAY! My Mom had all ready arrived to help out with Princess. So where was our baby boy? Snug as a bug inside of me! He was a week overdue so we decided to go ahead and induce labor...YAY! Well....our baby Boy was born 9lbs 11oz! After many tests, pocking and prodding, monitoring his heart guess who did NOT have Down Syndrome?!! That's right, our little monkey! He did have a tiny whole in his heart (1mm to be exact). The doctors were also concerned about the way his ears turned after he was born (babies born with down syndrome may have ears that turn down) his were turning up but it was still a concern. But guess what? He was just fine! I mean the heart issue was a little concerning but a lot of people are born with that defect and may never know it. GOD IS SO GOOD!

~We do miss our home state of Nebraska but we also have come to realize that home is where the heart (Hart) is! God has always provided us with the means to stay grounded through the good times and the bad. That may have been a new friend to talk to, a phone call from home, or a scripture that we may not have wanted to hear at that moment but it did us good none the less!
~Have a great Tuesday and I hope to have another post soon!
