It's me again...

I just looked at the date of my last post and it was over 2 and 1/2 months ago, wow! I could write for days about everything that's happened since October, but don't have the time or energy, not to mention the fact that it would be really boring. Anyway, I was doing pretty good about blogging, but we got some interesting news a few months ago that just brought our world to a stop. Don't worry, it's nothing bad, just very unexpected. So, you might ask what kind of news could have such an effect? I guess finding out that in June we will have 3 children under the age of 3 will do it! Yes, apparently God thought it would be fun for me to get pregnant while Ryder had just turned 2 and Sydney was 4 months. I was VERY unhappy at first, but we know it's a huge blessing. It has just taken some time to put everything into perspective and get our thoughts together. We will find out what it's going to be in 2 or 3 weeks, which also means that I'll be 20 wks and half way there. I have certainly learned that we can plan out our lives all we want, but sometimes God has his own set of plans. This is really going to change the way that I can work from home and the time table that we were looking to build our house. In the end, we are happy and know that there is no greater blessing.
In the mean time, our other two are getting so big. Ryder is 100% cowboy. He loves trailers, pickups, tractors, horses, cows and now anything that is John Deere. He got a pair of boots for Christmas and has taken them off for baths, but that's about it. He slept in them a few nights, hopefully that won't last much longer. Sydney got her first baby doll for Christmas, but Ryder plays with it more than she does. He's constantly changing her "poopy" diapers and has even named her, "daddy Colt". Colt is a little concerned at his love for a baby doll, but I have assured him that I don't think he'll be trading in his trucks for a doll. Sydney has four teeth and she's not crawling, but scooting all over the place. She's only 8 months, but wears 12-18 month clothes because of her length. They are both absolute balls of joy and we're excited to bring another one into our precious family.
Before I go, I have to gripe about football for just a second. Anyone watch Tech make fools of themselves today???? Anyone watch Dallas make fools of themselves a couple weeks ago??? Just checking, and that's really all that I have to say about my favorite teams. "Thanks a lot for such a happy ending to football season, you bunch of idiots". (Tierney, if you're reading this, sorry for all the insults!)
Here are pictures, and I promise to post within a timely manner this next time! Have a good one!

I can see where you would be a little upset at first! Scary!! You are such a great mom and I know you can handle it. Just be thankful that you have happy, healthy kids! Oh, me and the girls have the same Christmas pj's that Ryder has! Can't you just see me in those!

I am so glad you are back. Congrats on the new little one. These crazy babies days will go by too fast and one day but not today you will be wishing for them back. I will be keeping you in my prayers b/c that can be a lot to handle at times.

I KNOW exactly how you feel. However, we are both so blessed! Congrats!!! How are you feeling. I am feeling good, just getting to the really tired part. I guess that will last for quite a while. :)

It has been too long since I have seen you! I am glad you posted! Your kids are precious, as usual. I will continue to be praying for you and your growing family. God knows more than we do, obviously! You will do great with three under three! You are a GREAT mom!

Congrats on the pregnancy! I'm sure it was a shock, but sometimes I hope that happens for us, because otherwise, we might be done...planning just takes too much energy, and God always knows best :)
Glad to see you're back. I've missed keeping up with you. And the kids are precious, as always!

Hey three under three is crazy!! BUT, you can do it. It definitely takes some getting used to and a lot of prayer, so just enjoy the time with the two now. Oh and FYI, don't go to any store without carts or any restaurants without playgrounds. :)
