Today we made some ghost suckers for our afternoon snack.

I found the idea Here.

So cute and so easy!

Mine didn't look as good as the recipe...but kids loved them anyway.

Who wouldn't love a white chocolate ghost sucker??

These 4 sure did!

Ohh... Winter, what have you done to the beautiful Fall??

Fall is my favorite season. I could list a million things that I love about it. But Fall never seems long enough. Winter always comes way too soon and ALWAYS lasts too long!

My sweet, awesome, beautiful mom is having her "29th" birthday today.

Happy Birthday Mom. We love you so much!!

So we are going to dinner and then settling in for the night to watch the 1st game of the World Series. (go Yankees)

I have a few spots left open for Halloween Pictures. Stop by Here to get your time set up!

14 Weeks...

I made it through my 1st trimester. 4 weeks ago I seriously didn't think that I would survive 4 more weeks of morning sickness, fatigue, and not being able to keep anything down. But I did! Yeah!!!

I just realized that during my 2 previous pregnancies I have two pictures of me with a belly. One with Aniston and one with Emerson, both at about 6 weeks away from my due date. Kind of sad... so I am going to try super hard to document this pregnancy better. It will probably be the last.

We went to the Dr. last week. We heard the heartbeat for the 1st time and it just makes me smile. I already love this little person so much.

I feel a lot better for the most part. I can eat now and I am trying to gain back the weight that I have lost.

The H1N1 Flu has got us a little freaked out. We have become germaphobics (if that is even a word). We should invest in Lysol and hand sanitizer stock.

We keep referring to life as "after the baby comes" or when the baby comes". We are really just super excited. I am trying to talk Ryan into not finding out what it is. But he doesn't think that he can wait. At our next appointment we will schedule an ultrasound. I am really not having a feeling either way about whether it is a boy or a girl. The girls are sure that it is a boy and talk at the dinner table every night about their "baby brother". How cute is that? I just really love them and think that they are going to absolutely love this sweet little baby to death!

{30} days of {everyday}

I am totally stealing this idea from Mindy, (sorry, Mindy, Lame, I know) but I have been a blog slacker and I want a good reason to get myself blogging again.

Its going to be 30 days of everyday things. It may be boring, because, well, lets face it, I live a pretty boring life. But I am going to do it anyway. It's going to be full of things we are doing, things that make me happy, and things that I don't want to forget.

It is something that we do everyday.
I won't lie, some days 2nd grade homework is frustrating.
Somedays I have to walk away and let her dad help her.
Somedays it is SO much fun to see how much she is learning.
Somedays we work so hard on spelling test lists and she brings home a 100% and then we hang it on the fridge! And we are so proud!


there is one thing I know for sure...

I love her so much!!

oh... I have schedule info about Halloween Pictures on my Photography Blog. Check it out and schedule your time now!!

I have a little confession...

After a year and a half of waiting, wishing, hoping, and praying that we would be able to welcome a new little person to our family.

Our wishes finally came true!

Our sweet little addition is expected April 26, 2010.

My little girls are so excited and we talk about the new baby every day. They have been so good to help me while I have been sick.
It still doesn't feel real to me! But we are super excited and patiently (or in the girls case, not-so-patiently) waiting for April...
