Hey all, I have been a slack blogger and I am so sorry. I just have so much going on right now and yet I don't have much to say. Here's an update as to what has been going on in the Logan household:
-We took off to Wyoming this past weekend to see Christie and Jack (Clayton's Mom and her hubby). It was a boring 6 hour drive to get there but at least the kiddos were good. I made us all a bento box full of snacks for the trip. They were a big hit and Hubby even liked it. I will try to post a pic later of them. My memory card is still in the camera and Lord only knows where it is right now, lol.
Anyhow, the visit was wonderful. We got to see their beautiful brand new home that they had just purchased last year. The lot behind them is an open field with over 25 llamas and tons of pheasants. It was so cool to watch them.
-I have decided to quit pumping milk as of this past Monday to help preserve my sanity. My life right now feels like it is in a state of chaos so I quit donating. Now I can focus on myself and my family without having to pump my boobs every few hours, lol. After 2 months of pumping, I have donated over 265 bags of milk (that is a whopping 2120 ounces of breastmilk!). I am amazed at how well I did. My initial goal was to fill 50 bags. I had no idea that I would be able to pump so much more than that. The recipient of all this milk has been very appreciative and I heard that her son doesn't want anything to do with formula because of me, lol. That makes me feel good. He is a healthy little bub that just started walking not to long ago so he is well on his way to becoming a toddler now. I wish them the best of luck for the future! :)
-Clayton got most of our new surround sound system hooked up and it is so cool. The house came pre-wired for it so we thankfully didn't have to wire anything ourselves. The front speakers are up and the back speakers will arrive today. We should be all set after that. Unfortunately, the XBox 360 decided to give Clayton the red ring of death (red lights came on around the power button) so now he has to send it off to be repaired. He is soooo upset.
-I have a lunch scheduled today with a bunch of pre-k Moms at Hayden's school. We all chat when we drop-off or pick-up but we never hang out. I decided to take the bull by the horns and organize something. I sent out little notes to the gals I chat with regulary and invited them to Panera. Several gals RSVP'ed so I am expecting at least 5 of us to be there. It will be fun getting to know them without standing in the school hallway.

I gave hubby the Destination Anywhere CD from Jon Bon Jovi, some homemade chocolate-covered cherries and pretzel rods from a gal who makes the best candy, a bag of his favorite Sweettart hearts and some valentine boxers. Hubby surprised me and took us all out to Bonefish Grill to celebrate the occasion. It was fabulous as always. :)

I just recently got turned onto bento lunches from the message boards at 2 Peas. After spending a ton of money on eBay to get supplies shipped from Japan, here's what I came up with today:
The yellow monkey bento box is Emerson's and the blue bear box is Hayden's. I have a pink box with a bunny character that matches theirs.
The boxes contain the same stuff for each kid: 2 triangles of bologna/cheese sandwiches, grapes, goldfish crackers, pretzel goldfish, yo-gos, carrot sticks, cucumbers shaped like flowers and a sauce cup with ranch dressing.
The kids loved their bentos! I will try my hand at using some rice molds and egg molds later this week. Everything comes in cute shapes like fish, cars and animals. Oh, and I have these cute hot dog shapers that can make a hot dog look like a penguin, crab or octopus. I can't wait to play with everything. Who says that you can't play with your food? lol
After having such a wonderful experience with my previous surrogacy journey, I have decided to move forward with another lovely couple. The last pregnancy was hard but the end made it all worth it. I want to experience that high again. There is nothing more rewarding than seeing your IPs hold their baby for the first time. Hubby is supportive of this new endeavor so we are now in the process of making everything happen. My new IPs are ecstatic and I just know that we are a good fit. :)
You may have noticed the ticker has returned to the top of my blog. We are booked to go to the Polynesian Resort at Disney World again this September. I can't wait!! We had such a good trip in 2007 and it will be fun to do it all again this year. Since we booked with a bounceback offer (we had to book while staying there last year), we will be getting the dining plan for free this time. Whoo hoo!!

These pics were taken back when we lived in the mountains of NC. The top pic is of the Blue Ridge Parkway and the bottom one was taken from our last house. The views were definitely different than here in CO. Now instead of seeing millions of trees everywhere, we see jagged snowy mountains.
This was Thanksgiving back in 2005. We always hosted my parents and grandparents in our home. I will sooooo miss that tradition. We had them there for 8 Thanksgivings in a row.

BTW-I know that the pants look weird but Emerson dressed himself before I even realized that he had Hayden's pants on. They were a bit too big and since I didn't want H's new Gymborees to get messed up in the snow, I had to roll them up a couple times.
