A cappella

I love, love, love a cappella music! (When it's done well, of course.) I just got my Straight No Chaser "With a Twist" cd today! It's amazing!


And I know there are a lot of exclamation points up there. But I get excited. That's just how I roll.

Embrace the Camera

Someday, I'm sure I'll be glad I have pictures of me. Well, the kids will be glad. I am ridiculously uncomfortable posting pictures of myself.
Okay, so everyone's doing it, I guess I will too...

Busy Busy Busy

So in an effort to do better about blogging more often, I have dragged the laptop to the football field. There just aren’t enough hours in the day.

So we just replaced the a/c unit at our house. Naturally it was way too hot to stay there while it was out, so we went to a hotel. I told everyone to think of it as a mini-vacation. As much as the whole endeavor cost, that will be the only vacation we’ll be doing for quite some time!

Our days are super busy these days- Jackson and Jacob are both playing soccer and Josh is back in football. Jacob has also started mascotting (is that even a word?) again. He loves all the attention he gets, especially from the cheerleaders!

So this weekend will be a long one. I’m ready for it! Josh is going to his Dad’s and Jacob is going with his Pappy. Practically an empty nest. We have a pool party Sunday with one of my new TMOMS friends. I’m really looking forward to it. Except for the pool part. Some of us should never be in bathing suits. The twins, however, look adorable in their suits and love the water. I’ll have to post pics.

Long Time, No See

Wow! It's been a loooooooooong time! And boy, has my life changed. We had TWINS. Shut. Up. Twins?!

I knew after we had Jackson, that there was no way I would stop there. I just knew I needed one more. Yes, one. I have this weird thing where I wanted an even number of children. (Shush... I already said it was weird.)

Anyway, we decided not to "try" but more "stop trying NOT to" have another baby. I went off the depo shot. And sure the time I went to Kansas for the birth of Miss Maddy, I was certain I was pregnant. And figured I was 12-14 weeks along, just judging by how tired I was, and how sick. Oh wow, was I sick. I was losing weight. That's a new one for me.

Funny, while I was in Kansas we found out that my nephew, Travis, and his wife, Becky, were expecting twins. I got a good laugh out of that one. I mean-they already had 3 kids, what were they going to do with 2 more?

Again-Karma's a bitch.

**Tangent Alert**

Miss Maddy was born June 22nd and I have never been so happy as I was for Chris & Angela. Seriously, I can't think of anyone who will be better parents. They have Seth, but Chris needed a little girl!

Anyway, so after getting a little chuckle at Becky & Trav having FIVE kids... on July 8th, I found out that guess what? I was having twins. And I was only about 8 weeks along.

I thought they would NEVER get here...but I delivered them at 36 weeks 3 days on January 25th.

Okay, so I'm pretty much out of time. Sorry this was so jumbled! But I have lots more to blog about. It's been a super-busy year!
