Hanging in there!

So, I figured that since it has been about 6 months since my last post that it was time to post again. Some news that most everyone knows except my out of town friends is that we are expecting baby #4 in April. It is a BOY and we are super excited to have another little guy in our family. I am finally not throwing up and life is wonderful again.

My extended family had pictures taken a few weeks ago, so we have a few new pics to show everyone. After lots of craziness getting clothes that I like for everyone, doing everyone's hair nice, and trying to keep the kids clean I think it all turned out well. I couldn't have done it without the help of Randy (who is always my biggest ally!) and Autumn, hairdresser extraordinaire.

Anna is now 6 and loves full-day Kindergarten....ok, she would rather be home singing and swinging all day, but is now reading and continues to make us so proud!!

Hallie is almost 5 and gets cuter every day. She is also picking up a bit on reading and loves playing with her friends (especially her new best friend Fletcher).

Linc is our sweet little boy. He is 2 1/2 and is finally starting to talk. He loves basketballs and tattling on his sisters and anyone else who crosses his path. I don't want him to grow up and smother him every chance I get.

Here is my honey. Enough said.

Our family picture...3 out of 5 of us smiling is good enough for me!

My Mom, Dad, sisters, brothers, in-law siblings, and nephews...yep, still waiting on a niece! Thank goodness I have a few on Randy's side of the family!

My baby girls

I hope everyone is enjoying the holidays! We love you all!
