Big News!

Yes, much to our surprise, we are expecting baby #3 in May 2013!  We are very excited, especially Kenzie!  I know she is going to be my biggest helper!  I have another sonogram on December 20th so hopefully we will find out whether we will have another boy or another girl.  Of course Kenzie wants a girl and Aydan wants a boy.  I have been starting to feel the baby move a lot more and the other night Kenzie put her hand on my belly and she was able to feel the movements too.  She thought it was the coolest thing :)
I will try to update after my next appointment and sonogram :)

Phone photo dump

I thought I'd share a few more random pics from my phone.  Hey, I'm bored ok  ;)

Aydan walking with Hunter down the pier behind our apartment.  I adjusted the color of this pic to make it look kinda antique-ish.

Kids playing out back, enjoying the weather.  

Aydan smiling for the camera.  Handsome man!

Our first cook-out of the year, lol!  Fun times!  Mmmm, I could go for a s'more right about now!

First time in the pool this year.  Water was still to cold for me to get in but the kids got used to it.

Aydan's so excited, he can touch in the 3 ft area now...barely.

She really really really wanted a lizard, so that's what she got. Its hard to see him in the picture but he's standing on the stick.  She named him Leo. Either we buy her one or she was going to keep trying to catch one outside.

Hanging out at Kemah Boardwalk.

Trying to look through the have to put money in it for it to work, sorry Kenzie, lol!

Just a view down part of Kemah Boardwalk.  We went there for a car show that day so we didn't get a chance to ride any rides, but hopefully soon we can go back and spend more time doing things there...before it gets too hot!

Random wedding pics

Howdy!! So I finally uploaded the pictures I had on my phone.  Here are a few of the ones I took at my brother's wedding in April.  Sorry they aren't the greatest quality...there are just cell phone pics :)

Here's my kiddos all dressed up!  Aydan was the ring bearer so he had a handsome little tux.  Kenzie helped with the guest book so we got her a dress that was somewhat the color of the wedding (fushia).  The both looked so darn cute :)  Can you believe how tall Aydan (age 5) is compared to Kenzie (age 10)!  Its crazy!  She is short for her age and he seems tall for his age.  

My parents with the weird! LOL!!  To me, he's still my 12 year old brother...but I guess we are all getting older these days!

Me and my sissy were both bridesmaids :)

The hubby is on the far right and Aydan is front and center.  He was so tired of posing for pictures by the end of the day.  Poor guy!  

The newly weds....Jarrad and Ashleigh Miller

My sister Erin and my nieces, Melanie and Kendall.  Pretty ladies :)

Kenzie at the reception doing the dollar dance with her uncle Jarrad.

So anyway, these are just a few of the pics on my phone I thought I'd share.  We had such a great time!!

This n' that

Hey everyone!!  Hope everyone had a nice Easter!  We enjoyed ours.  We didn't do anything special really.  The kids opened their baskets bright and early Sunday morning (I was up way earlier than I would have liked, lol!!)  We dyed some eggs, then later in the day made them into deviled eggs.  The night before we grilled some hotdogs outside and roasted marshmallows.  It was a fun time!! It had been a while since we had done that.  It was nice to spend some time outside.  The weather has been gorgeous lately!  There isn't much variety to the weather here.  Its pretty much the same everyday, which I like if its nice.  Its been sunny and low 80's so I'm not complaining.  I know hotter weather will be here shortly.

We will be heading to IL for my brother's wedding this weekend! We are excited to see everyone!  Its been almost 2 years since we've been back to visit!  Time sure does fly by!!  Unfortunately, it will be a quick trip.  We are driving so we are leaving Thursday morning and will arrive sometime very very early Friday morning.  Then we have to turn around and head back down on Sunday to be back at work on Tuesday :(  BOOOO!  Danny and I don't have any vacation days at work yet for the year so we can't take much time off.  Speaking of work, I finally found a full time job doing what I was doing before :)  Its been going really well!  I like it a lot.  There seems to be a lot of opportunity to move up as well, which is good.

I'm really not to happy about gas being almost $4 a gallon, especially since we are driving up to IL in Danny's truck!!  Gonna cost a fortune but still much cheaper than 4-round trip plane tickets I guess.  I can't wait to see Danny and Aydan in their tuxes!  I haven't seen Danny in a tux since our wedding almost 10 years ago!! Aydan is the ring bearer.  I've talked to him a little bit about what he's going to have to do in the ceremony and I think he's a little nervous about it.  Hopefully he does fine and doesn't freak out, lol! Kenzie is helping with the guest book, so she's excited about that.  We bought her dress a couple weeks ago; its so pretty!  I should have a bunch of pictures of everyone to post afterwards!

Well, I think that's all for now!   :)

Shocking, I know!

Yes, I am still alive!!! Can't believe its been so long since my last post!  So just to catch up, Happy Halloween, Happy Thanksgiving, Merry Christmas, and Happy New Year!!!!  At least I made it before Valentines Day!  Wow, were do I start?  Really not much new going on here. I don't know why I haven't posted more often.  Sometimes, I just kinda forget about this poor little blog.

We had a great holiday season.  Danny's dad and girlfriend came to visit us from Illinois over Christmas.  It was his first visit here so we were so happy he was able to make it.  We had a great time with them, even though it decided to rain everyday they were here.  And, no lie, not even an hour after they leave, the sun comes out and it stops raining.  Go figure!

This has seriously been the warmest winter I have ever seen!! Down here its been averaging 65-75 everyday!  And it sounds like its been above average everywhere and IL has hardly seen any snow!?  CrAzY!!  Oh well, I'm sure not complaining!

I'm still working part time at the same job.  Its going fine but I've been looking around for full time stuff.  I do like spending all day at home with Aydan (and Kenzie when she's not in school).
Aydan turned 5 on January 29th!!  We didn't have a big party, just cake and stuff at home for him.  He's growing up so fast!  He's getting so tall and loosing a lot of his "baby fat" so he looks more like a big boy.  This August, he will start Kindergarten.

This is him playing outside on his birthday :)

Kenzie is doing really well too.  She's been really into reading (mostly scary stories) and writing her own stories.  She so good at it! She has such an imagination!

This was taken on Thanksgiving at my Uncle Jerry's house.  I just love this picture of her :)

This is a random picture I found but I love it!  Danny was working on a neighbors car and the neighbor is a photographer and he snapped a picture of these 2 working.  Its so cute!  You can really tell a difference between my phone pictures and his nice camera pictures, lol!

Well, I really don't have much else to report, and Aydan's bugging me to play with him, so I guess thats my cue to finish up here.  I will definately try to update more often, I just lead a boring life ;)

Take care!  Have a good week!
