Winter, Schminter.

What have we been up to? Well, in the winter it feels like our days are always the same and it gets difficult to spice things up a bit and get us through the long winter days.

Luckily at school they spice things up by having wacky day. I was pretty impressed with my outfit selection. And I hear the girls were too.

We built a snow fort while having a snow day. This was before 9am.

We've had a bubble bath or two.

And when it wasn't 30 below we ventured out to make a snowman. Or at least the boys did. I was on the couch, remember?

This past weekend it hit mid 30s. Hallelujah! And so the boys piled in the car to watch the graters clean out our cul-de-sac in preparation for the melting the snow.

And then we bundled up, although lightly since it was 30+ degrees, and enjoyed some beautiful weather.

We dug a tunnel. And by we, I mean Trevor.

Even daddy got through it.

Can you see the sun shining?

And these too hooligans attempted to make the biggest snowman ever.

Don't ask how we got that second ball up there. I'll just say it involved alot of muscle and the corn hole board. I'm sure it was not a pretty sight.

We were going to take the boys to the ice rink but apparently that's not a good idea when it's been 40 for 2 days. So we went sledding instead.

The boys loved it.

Declan probably the most. I think he laughed the whole time.

Winter fun!

These two should have probably been on something other then a circle sled. Sorry for the snow bath Bennett.

Despite his rather terrified look I think he actually liked it.



There's a reason I haven't been putting much on here. It has to do with my inability to get off the couch. Why can't you get off the couch Amy? It may have something to do with this...

Yes, we're expecting....again. That means four kids. Funny when we tell people their reaction seems to be more of shock, amazement, curiosity....clearly two sane people wouldn't actually plan to have four kids. This must have been an accident (it wasn't). Apparently, having four kids means you've tipped into crazyville. So that's where were headed, Crazyville, with a one way ticket.

We're excited, and scared and nervous. The boys are excited. Bennett has no idea what's going to hit him. And judging from his reaction when I had a friends baby on my lap last week....he may be a little jealous.

Baby #4 should make his or her appearance in early September. That makes this the 3rd summer I'll spend pregnant. Crazyville, I tell ya!

I've been feeling awful. Which explains my sparseness around here. Actually, I feel a little better then I did a few weeks ago when I was certain death was near. I'm more tired and exhausted then nauseous. Nothing sounds good. The thought of a Coke makes me want to hurl. My head feels like it might explode and Tylenol does nothing for that scenario. I'd like to take about 4 naps a day but the boys have other plans. I walked into Target the other day without a list and then spent about 15 minutes trying to figure out what I was there for. So, yes, looks like we've entered Crazyville. Hope you'll enjoy the ride with us!
