We are having a BABY!!!

We are so excited and pleased to announce that we are having another baby!! I am due September 13th (my Dad's birthday).  But with my history this little peanut will be born around August 16th.  And with that we are extremely excited to announce that we are having a...


We were really hoping for a girl because with my health...and I have to admit our mental state...we have no future plans for another child.  I am now 20 weeks along and feeling much better.  Between two crazy boys, working night shift, and being pregnant I am ALWAYS exhausted!

Here are pictures of our ultrasound that was done when I was 18 weeks.  Our next ultrasound is this coming week and I will be 1 day shy of 21 weeks.

Sucking her thumb.


This year was pretty laid back.  Reed and Laura came to celebrate this year!  We made a delicious meal on Saturday.  The Easter Bunny came on Sunday morning and ate left overs that day.

The boys checking out their baskets!  Cooper is showing Crew what he got.
 Crew loved the jelly beans inside the eggs!  He couldn't get enough of them!

 Some sweet neighbor or friend (we don't know who did this) "egged" us!  There were lots of eggs for the kids out in the front yard filled with candy.

 after breakfast we had our own little egg hunt in the back yard.

 I didn't do Cooper's hair that morning..I promise it didn't stay like that for long!

 Crew ended up having red, goopey eyes so Cooper and I were the only ones that went to church.

 And here's a picture of the boys in their matching Easter outfits a few weeks later!! What handsome little boys!!


We have had some beautiful weather so far this year.  Here's a few things that we've been up to.

Cooper and his favorite color - Yellow!
 we have an empty lot next door that has a pretty large dirt hill.  It's true, boys love dirt.

 Cooper insists on wearing his winter boots.
 Crew is getting so big.  His speech amazes us!  His sweet personality is contagious. He will go up to anyone and asked to be held. But don't be fooled...he has an anger side that is just like his brothers!  He's also a BIG tease and finds enjoyment making other kids upset.
 he still has curly hair!!  we recently gave him a hair cut that took all the cute curls :(

 we've been playing a lot of basketball with our soccer balls!  Cooper has an awesome left handed shot!
 Brady had a proud moment this month.  He gave Cooper his very first gun!

Cooper turned 3!!!!

Our sweet little boy turned 3 this year!  We started celebrating the weekend before with his best friend. We had cake and opened a few presents.  Our friends were so sweet and got him a cute book and glove with a baseball.  He opened one present from us, which was a Toy Story Woody doll.

His actual birthday was dedicated just or him!  Brady took the day off of work, we took Crew to day care and had a day just with Cooper.  We made his favorite cinnamon rolls for breakfast, went bowling, had lunch and ice cream (twice), then came home and opened presents!!

We love our stubborn, sweet, funny, energetic 3 year old!!  We love you Cooper and can't imagine life without you!!


We had a wonderful first Christmas in our new home!  We bought a new fake tree that I absolutely LOVE!  Cooper really caught on to Santa this year and that made it so much more fun.  We had Reed and Laura spending the holiday here, which was a lot of fun!

Christmas Eve with hot chocolate and watching The Polar Express

 our elf, Jasper, brought a box from the North Pole with lots of goodies including new PJs, slippers, a movie, popcorn and hot chocolate!

 Matching PJs on Christmas Eve

 Santa came!

 and the best present was most definitely the train set and table! The massive table was originally supposed to be upstairs in a play room...however, it is played with every single day all day long!! So it's still in the main living room.

We had an amazing Christmas!! We were all spoiled!!  We are grateful I didn't have to work Christmas Eve or Christmas day.  I was originally scheduled but for some reason my scheduled changed last minute! Yay!!
