Guess who's having a GIRL!!!!!!!!

beloved hippo
say cheese!

the sisterhood...
Papa letting himself get pounced at the birthday party

Cowboy day at school- normal day for Cash

yes- that is snot- and that is my husband:)

that would be ME!!!!! I can hardly believe it myself- which is why I haven't posted until now:) And as you might have already guessed, yes, she does already have a closet full of clothes:) We are so ecstatic to welcome a little girly girl into the family (and you know we need it!)...we can't wait until july!!!
other than that...
We have been busy busy with other things. Pierce had his 5th birthday- can't believe he is 5. We celebrated at the usual bounce place- and he celebrates daily (still) anytime he sees the number five or hears it. My sweet boy has become quite the helper around here. Its funny how they go from being a baby to one day being able to carry out 'favors' for mom and little babysitting tasks. He has gotten so big and heavy and he is crazier than ever. He wedged my exercise ball between the couch and the ottoman and told me to watch as he jumped on the ball and did a front flip onto the couch- over and over again. He is loving soccer this year and cries like its the end of the world if he doesn't get more than three goals:) Thats my boy! kidding. I love him so much and he has brought me and my family so much happiness and LAUGHS- I feel so lucky to have him.
We have also been working on our house. Not technically- someone else it actually building:) but it has taken a lot of planning and deciding, etc- which can be extremely exhausting! But we can now (almost) say that after two years we can now sit back and watch it come together. That makes two babies due in July!:) I guess we won't be bored!
Other than that we have been doing the usual. Cash is getting extremely sassy..can I say that about a boy? He surprises me daily with different 'deals' and ideas. anytime I ask them to clean up he is instantly 'too tired' or sick:) and when I start my rebuttal he starts interrupting me by imitating me and speaking really loudly over me saying "excuse me! I'm trying to tell you something!" sometimes I laugh- and mostly I think- where did he get this? Lex has turned into the tyrant of the house. he is such a ham- he knows how to win you over...which is good because he is also extremely evil sometimes! If Cash or Pierce has to go to time out he runs over- makes sure i am watching- and laughs and kicks them! If you say no-well you better watch out- he gets the biggest smile on his face and does whatever you just told him not to faster and with more vigor than before- and before you can get your hands on him he is sprinting away. We are in for it!
Ok-other than THAT we haven't been up to much.. and since a picture is worth a thousand words...

Christmas..a little late.

My oh my how I loved Christmas this year. Pierce and Cash were so excited about EVERYTHING!! They had asked for power wheels for months...and repeated it to santa the THREE times they ran up to sit on his lap at three different malls:)- needless to say we were so thrilled to see their faces on christmas morning- there is nothing better. Santa came to Nana's house again this year for the Christmas eve dinner- once again (and yes, these pictures are their faces when he walked through the door), their faces just say it all. They had the little nativity- Pierce and Cash got to be shepherds- and you would have thought it was the first time my dad had ever read the scripture story:) - seriously- he kept stumbling over himself- it was classic. And as is tradition as well, we got the boys pajamas for christmas eve night- and this year we actually got ourselves some as well- we went up and changed and surprised them...i was batman and mauri was superman. They were pretty excited. They ask me every night to wear the batman ones...

I truly feel so blessed to have my little family. I love these guys more than I could ever say- they make me smile and laugh everyday. I look forward to everything so much more because I have them to share it with. I know I will miss them at this age...

almost christmas

Well actually some of them are from christmas we just have to split them up. Dont ask me what all of them are doing with that white sheet though...they find the wierdest things to play. Lex is getting so old- and actually pretty big, too. He beats up on the other two like you wouldn't believe- You will no longer hear me say 'poor lex'- he just walks up and hits the other two for no reason- and if its not with his bare hands its with a sword or a bat or anything else thats lying around. Oh- and don't ask what that giant spot is on his forehead...wasn't a zit- but we were glad it showed up just in time for christmas day!!:)

Until next season....

And I can't wait for it! I love watching them play. They are both ready for next time.. And yes, that is a spiderman costume under cash's uniform.

Pierce's coach was actually a soccer player from south africa- good training starts early!


Rarely do any of my angels ever slow down long enough to...well they never slow down. I still klike to find Cash passed out in odd places (usually on the couch)- but also on picnic tables...And here is Pierce at his class thanksgiving party. And man was it a PARTY!- he took his role very seriously as you can see.
