catch up time

Sooo I had lots of good intentions of posting pics from Easter, but seeing how it is now almost 2 weeks past I don't think it will happen. We had a good Easter, Joel was home, though poor thing had a stomach bug. We had our own easter egg hunt here, then another one at Joel's parents, and then another one with my family at my sister's house. Easter also happened to be my sister's birthday so I made a fun Easter/birthday cake. It turned out pretty good. I got a handful a cute pics of the boys trying to find eggs, but not even one family pic...oh well. The boys had a blast and for the next week Kade asked if I would hide more eggs for him to find. This may be his new favorite holiday...atleast until the next one:)

Let's see....oh yah we cut Gavin's hair. It was getting so long, and his hair just doesn't grow like Kade's does, he had quite the mullet going on. He looks so grown up and he is talking sooo much it makes me wonder where the time went and how he became such a giant boy. He will be two in August!

I am less than a month away from the "BIG" ultra sound, and I cannot wait! WE had an ultrasound at 12 weeks and "she" looked so big already! The doc did say that she looked and didn't see a third leg...but of course still a little early to tell. Oh how I want my little girl and how I can't wait to clean out the 5 giant boxes of boys clothes from my garage!

And lastly, (for now at least) it is still April and I am already dying of heat exhaustion. It was 98 yesterday and I think supposed to be 100 today. SERIOUSLY. come one, I shouldn't have to turn the air on until atleast mid-May. I am trying as hard as I can to atleast wait until May 1st to turn it on, but I don't know if I have it in me....yesterday was very uncomfortable! I am so not looking forward to another pregnant summer. (Unless it is a girl and then I don't care!!!)

that's all I got for now.....

Easter in a nutshell

I have been trying to talk to Kade about Easter so I asked him a few questions today to see if he has been listening or understanding. Here's how it went:

Me: "Why do we celebrate Easter?"
K: "Because God loves us."
Me: "And what did he do?"
K: "He went and got dead for us"
Me: "Why?"
K: "Because the bad guys were mean to him."
Me: "That wasn't very nice was it?"
K: " No but then he come back and he's Alive!"

Couldn't have put it better myself!

Family photo session

My sister bought me a session with an amazing photogropher who did Hannah's first baby pics. I have had the gift certificate for a few months, and have been so looking forward to it. Tami Proffit is her name and she is one cool woman with amazing talent.

Truthfully though, I was nervous....for many reasons. One, I am in that in between pregnancy stage, where I just look chunky. Two, I was worried that the boys wouldn't cooperate and already had visions of what i wanted the pics to be. And three, I had a mishap with our grill the other day and had to go get a DRASTIC haircut the day before pics. And, while I really like my haircut, I am still in those first few days where I am learning the best and easiest way to style it myself.

Well, the pics were yesterday, and while I wish the boys would have been in a more loving mood toward each other, and it took a while for Gavin to open up (and lots of smarties!), all in all I think it went GREAT. Tami spent so much time with us and tons of time following around our two crazies. I have only seen just a few pics, and there will be more to come. But she has already posted a sneak peak on her blog if you would like to take a look!

Thanks Robyn for giving this session to us, it was one of the best presents I have ever received!
