My "big" four year old

We recently had a little party for Shep's 4th birthday. We had it a few weeks early since his actual birthday falls right in line with when these babies are likely to arrive. It was an all boy party and he was able to invite four friends. It was fun to watch these boys play together and just be boys. Such a sweet gift they will have growing up together and hopefully remain friends for years to come.

Even though his bday isn't for a few more weeks, he is convinced he is  four

these two have some serious man-love for one another

sweet boys being silly on the tire swing

they seem to be having a serious man to man talk and I am excited
they will be at the same school next year

another generation of boys 
it just doesn't get much cuter than this, sweet Hope and her mama


It has been WAY too long since I have updated. I am going to give this blog one last resurrection and see how committed I really am.

We have had lots of changes around here lately, most important of which, I am 36 weeks preggers with twin boys. We are so grateful for a healthy 36 weeks and are hoping for a few more, even though I am so exhausted. Robbie has been doing mostly everything around here and I have been taking it easy for the last few weeks. Basically I am doing only the minimum required to keep my children alive. Nice, right? Mom of the year award here I come!

I leave you with a few pics of my cuties on a recent beach vacation!

Coming soon to a kitchen table near you (me)

After a year of talking about it, I finally did it! I committed a day to building the framework, buying the dirt and seeds and putting it all together. Here's to some winter/spring veggies

Beach House

Two weeks ago, the boys and I headed over to the beach with some friends for a quick mid-week get-a-way. The house was ginormous...Shep was a little confused as to how to find his bedroom at first, but he soon got the hang of it. Brennan really enjoyed all the extra space to crawl around in. I think the kitchen and dining area was the size of my entire house. Unfortunately I don't have any pics of the house, but here are some cute ones of the kids.

10) for two really fun weekend getaways
11) having a husband and two boys to come home to after two really fun weekend getaways
12) for a 3yr old and a 1yr old
13) for the hope and anticipation of more children someday
14) friends who I can pray with and be vulnerable with
15) recognizing my sin and starting to hate it
16) for getting through a tough discipline stage with Shep
17) learning that when I raise my voice, it just makes things worse
18) embracing the dirty, poopy, smelly diapers that need to be washed every three days; because it saves
      tons of $
19) really getting into the swing of our new cash budget, and thankful we put forth the effort to get it
