My FARM boys

I wasn't raised on a farm and all of this is still kind of a novelty to me. And while I don't like the smell, the way it attracts fly's, or all the dirt and mess that come with it... what I do love is watching my boys learn to work, and for the most part, actually enjoy it.

Exciting news

Our lives are pretty low key. And while I love my life and am mostly grateful for the mundane,(it beats the alternative). I also love the rare occasion that we have something exciting to share.

We recently found out we are expecting. And while I don't love morning/(more like all day) sickness or complete exhaustion. I do love the thought of having a baby. The boys have been so cute and so excited... it's made the whole experience even that much more fun.

the due date is January 17th ( colby's birthday). And while the chance of having it on that date is VERY unlikely... I was concerned about poor Colby having to share his birthday. When I asked him what he thought of having a baby on his birthday he said " that would be a great birthday present." Once again my children manage to take my breath away.

top 16 things that have happened in the past 16 weeks since we blogged

Okay, I know I am soooooo pathetic. Has it really been 16 whole weeks since I posted. Yikes! You know it's been a long time since you posted when your friends start doing updates about your life on their blog.

So while our life has been quite boring, okay, maybe not BORING... maybe just uneventful I will make a small attempt to update you with the happenings of the past several weeks.

I am not ranking these events in order of importance or status in our lives...but merely as a calendaring.
