30 Weeks!

I hope you all had an amazing Christmas! Ours was great....I am still waiting for some pictures and then I'll do a post. Maybe you're "Christmas posted out" it will be super exciting when I do post...haha. So...I am now 30 weeks. the 30's...feels good and crazy all at the same time. I had my OB appointment today and have some new prayer requests so here's the run down! * Boys are still feet I said before I'm mentally preparing myself for a C-Section, but I am still praying they will flip around so I don't have to. I'd love you to pray for this as well! * I have started to dilate. Not too bad, but I'm at a 1. He has told me I need to slow it down . Giving up things like laundry, and lots of lifting. My husband has asked me not to grocery shop alone or do anything extra and my OB has asked me to listen to my husband :) I'm a worrier . And because I worry, it will make me slow down...but I don't want to live in


My gorgeous son :)

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas from the Bowen Family! "If we could condense all the truths of Christmas into only three words, these would be the words: "God with us." We tend to focus our attention at Christmas on the infancy of Christ. The greater truth of the holiday is His deity. More astonishing than a baby in the manger is the truth that this promised baby is the omnipotent Creator of the heavens and the earth!" John F. MacArthur, Jr.

Random Wednesday

There are things I usually are picky about, but when I'm pregnant...and THIS pregnant, I could really care less. Like I sorta double park right now. If I don't, and some really smart person parks to close to my car, I literally can NOT get Jack in the car and buckle him in. Luckily those times have happened when my husband was with me, but I double park now. Usually at Christmas time my husband and I do this thing where we park in the FIRST spot we see, even if it is 15 miles from the entrance. Leaving the closer spots for someone else...but this year, I drive around for awhile until I find something closer. I ALWAYS put my cart back in the correct spot. I unload my groceries, and keep Jack buckled in. Then, we take the cart back and walk back together. But this year, if I was not able to get a spot near a cart corral...I leave it. I know, it's so bad...but I'm okay with it right now. I made some Gooey Butter Cake Cookies yesterday and we're in the process of making

Pictures of the Twin's Bedroom

So, here are some pictures of the boys' room! It's not done (still needing a second crib and some extras like a lamp and some airplanes from the ceiling and pics on the wall!)  BUT I am so happy with it! The clothes are all washed and put away and I'm just SO ready for them to be here...but I want them to stay in as long as possible!! Jack showing off his brother's room! That super cute diaper caddy in the background is from my blogging friend Robin at Partialemptynester sweet is she?!!? One of the cribs with some super cute pilot bears! These were on top of the most amazing diaper cake I have EVER laid eyes on!! The refurbished dresser! Bought for $10 at our church garage sale and my Mom's best friend Lynette worked her magic!! Look at the cute knobs she found! Those diapers will last a week maybe?!?! AHHH!!! :) 

Family Day

Yesterday was one of those days that you mark down in your journal as near perfect. Whenever you plan something that involves your children and something new, you just never know what you're going to get! We've been wanting to take Jack up to the snow this winter before I got too big, or wasn't able to travel and before the twins got here. So, yesterday was the day! We are lucky to live near snow, but not have it covering OUR streets. (Although every now and then it'd be nice!) So we got ourselves ready in the morning and headed up to Union Creek which is a little over an hour away. They have a great little sledding area! We bundled up (Jack's total outfit costing us only $30 thanks to a great second-hand store!) and when we got there, we were the only ones!! Jack was so darn excited he could hardly stand it. Trev pulled him around on his little sled for a bit, and then sent him down a small hill a couple of times before they both got on the bigger sled and went

Jesus Loves Me

Jack isn't too fond of the camera....the smiling pictures you see take quite a bit of effort on our part :) So, the video isn't great quality because I was trying not to be obvious! At the end Jack starts to say, "All done Jesus Loves Me"...basically, he was all done singing thank you very much MOM! I love this just melts my heart!

28 Weeks!

I cannot believe I am 28 weeks already....actually 28 weeks 3 days :) We had our check-up today and the ultrasound to check their growth. Here's a little rundown! * Both boys are breech with their little feet down low. Their heads are basically right up against one another at the top of my belly :) There is still time for them to flip around and that's what they are praying for. But I am preparing myself mentally for a C-Section. * I am measuring at 36 weeks :) This is how big I was when I had Jack. That is just CRAZY to me!! But totally normal for twins. * Mr. Camden is weighing in at 2lbs 7oz and Mr. Christian is weighing in at 2lbs 9oz !!!! They are measuring almost the same which is so great and only a few ounces behind a singleton baby! Our Doctor was very happy with this! *Fluid levels are great * They have long fingers like their Mama. :) And long feet too! * I have only gained 14lbs. But their weight is great, so no worry there! * Just a 'finger-tip' of dialati

He knew

Our church had it's Christmas program yesterday. Love's Plan was the name of it. Simple, yet powerful. The basic message was He has a plan in it all, and it includes you. Just because it's Christmas doesn't mean that life comes to a halt. There is still pain, sickness, sorrow and difficulty. And sometimes it can be difficult to be joyful. But through it all, He has a plan and it will come to pass. ___________________________________________________________________ Last year we had two showings of the Christmas program. One on a Friday night, and the next one on the Sunday night. On that Saturday in between, I found out I had lost our baby while laying on a cold table in the E.R. Our baby that we told our family about on Thanksgiving, a day of thanks. Our baby we were celebrating that Christmas. Gone. No heartbeat. No movement. Nothing. I felt raw. Robbed of joy. Robbed of my favorite season of all. I felt cheated. It ripped my insides apart. Christmas was in 6 days. How
