>The waiting has ended and a baby has arrived! KayleeAhna Rae Berg entered the world on Friday at 6:43 pm weighing 8 lbs 6.5 oz and was 20.5 inches long. She is just a doll and I get to be her godmother. What a special way to welcome my first neice into this world! We love her to pieces and can’t wait to watch her grow!
>The puppies have arrived and are all healthy and doing well. They arrived a few days before we were expecting but all went well and we have 6 puppies. One yellow and five black. Only one black female showed this time! Labor was quite a bit shorter this time for mommy but we also had 4 less puppies.
It’s been quite an exciting couple weeks for us and we are not done yet. Still awaiting the arrival of the newest Berg family member! Can’t wait to meet him/her!
>Things are always busy around here and this week has kept the excitement going. We have been thinking about it for a while and finally decided to bite the bullet and buy a new car. This last weekend we went looking and struck out. Then we called our favorite sales guy in town and he hooked us up with a 2005 Grand Prix. It is a sharp looking car. We picked it up tonight and Mike has been like a kid at Christmas ever since.
We also finally decided to buy a Wii. After looking for a couple weeks and not being able to find one in town we finally found one at Best Buy. We have been having lots of fun with it since Sunday. The boys really enjoy it and it is a useful bargaining tool in order to get them to do things too!
Next week should be another exciting one! We have a litter of puppies due on or about Friday and my brother Nick & his fiance are expecting a baby any day as well. Such excitement! Can’t wait to meet all the new additions to our family!
>Our big weekend started out on Friday night with our daycare sleepover. I did a ‘Parent’s Night Out’ for the parents of my daycare kids. I take the kids and have a sleepover and they get to enjoy a night alone without kids! So we have 7 little boys sleeping here on Friday. It was quite a night filled with hockey, pizza, ice cream sundaes and a movie. They all had so much fun and so did I!
Then on Saturday all the parents picked up the kids by 9 am in time for us to get going to hockey. After Blake’s practice I took him to a birthday party for his friend Aurora. He got there late due to practice but had a good time. When I went to pick him up Aurora’s mom came out and said ‘He is the sweetest most polite little boy. He is welcome to come and play ANY time!’ AAAWWW! That makes my heart so proud that we are raising such a nice young man who other parents would ask to come play. Makes me feel good that we are actually doing something right in raising our kids!
After the birthday party the boys headed off to the Southern MN Children’s Museum with uncle Nick & Janelle and her boy Braydon. Sounds like they had some fun and after that they went to the WOW Zone. While they were gone I left for a Girls Night with my best friend Amy. We booked a hotel in Mankato for the night and made Valentine’s for our kids’ classes at school. They turned out SO cute! I will post some pictures once our laptop is back from the shop.
Now we are all settling down for the night and possibly going to watch some of the Super Bowl. Not sure I can watch much of it with the disappointing Vikes game 2 weeks ago but we will see. I might just hit the sack early!
