Hi Again!

Well, we are all thoroughly exhausted, but having a wonderful time and making lots of memories. I had wanted to post pictures, but I suppose it will have to wait until we get home. :)

For those who didnt read the info in the comments, my sil Amanda had her baby last Thursday, April 19, only 3 weeks late! :) Just on schedule if you go by her other sweeties... Anyway, she had a GIRL! Her name is Moriah Sage and Amanda now gets the prize for having had the smallest baby in the family: she weighed in at 7lbs 9oz! (Amanda also holds the prize for having had the biggest baby as well: her last one was 11lbs 4 oz!) I cant wait to meet my new sweet neice!

And in other family news, my brother Aaron will be permanently back with his family, having completed his time in Iraq, this Saturday! YAY! Im excited to see him too!

More next week, from home and with pictures. :)

Hello There!

Well, we are all well and kicking, hot and sweaty! We have been walking to the beach every morning and wearing the kids out so we can go home, have showers and lunch, and take naps. This is the life! The trip was not as uneventful as what I was hoping for, but we are all recovering now. :) These kids are going to grow up versatile, that´s for sure! Once they grow to be a little bit more versatile, the trip will be easier on me.... ;-) No baby for Amanda yet! Maybe she´s waiting til I get back! Just kidding ~ I wouldn´t wish that on her, as much as I´d love to be there.
Well, today we don´t seem to be able to open hotmail, so if I´m not responding to your email, that´s why. :) But we will probably come here again soon to try again. We probably have an overload of spam by now!
More later!

My grandpa and his wife just got in from a five month trip down south for the winter and came to visit yesterday and meet our new addition. We had a really nice visit!

These cuties are my friend Kendra's. We realized the other day that our children are currently perfectly stair-stepped: 4,3,2,1,0 years old! So we arranged them in order of age and here they are: Joshua, Joshua, Dominique, Nicholas, Israel.
Well, as of today I will be away from our computer for a while. I will post elsewhere if I can, but if not, see you in a few!

The Difference 3 months Can Make :)

Here I am with my sister-in-law Amanda. The first picture was taken in December, and the second one was just the other day. In the December pic, I was 9+ months pregnant, she was 6 mos. Now she is 9+ months pregnant, and I am 3.5 months postpartum. :) I thought the comparison was fun. :) I'm glad I am where I am right now instead of where she is! But, pray for her, as baby will be here anyday!
