I remember when Dave and I wanted to start our family, how excited we where to take on the large and extreme role called parents. The joy I felt to become a mom! Something every little girl dreams of, playing mommy to all her baby dolls and make sure they knew how much you loved them even if it was pretend and they where only made of plastic.
Now that we have become parents, "Mommy's" and "daddy's" It has definitely been fun, scary, emotional, exhausting, a time suck (and I mean that in the nicest way), wonderful, thrilling and a crazy ride! Even though my oldest is almost 3 and I have not been a mom for that long, I know that it is exactly what I wanted to be! And I wouldn't change it for anything! I look forward to all the challenges that being a mom or parent bring. I would never wish my children's lives away but I look forward to them going to school for the first time and when there still little to you in your eyes but they tell you that they don't need you, when the go through there awkward tween years, through the wonderful years of junior high, on to High school where they go to there first dance, learn to drive a car and pick colleges to go to. But for now I will keep them the way they are fun, always making me laugh, testing my patient, testing my consistently, and loving me right back!
Now that we are expecting our third I will be honest I am little scared. Being out numbered, knowing I have to be ready days in advance to be able to go any where. Trying to have every one on a schedule. Each kid going in there own direction. Deciding who needs to be cared for first but making sure each one of your kids know how much love you have for each of there special spirits and the joy and talents that they bring to your family!
I have decided that even being pregnant is like we already have our third here. I am sick all the time and my poor kids often find themselves watching a movie a little longer than I like to admit to. Getting breakfast closer to lunch time and making them taking naps longer even if there playing in there bed rooms, as long as they don't come out.
It amazes me how adding a new member of the family just as simple as only being 16 weeks pregnant, how much it can effect my family. But I look forward to adding a new and special spirit to our family. I can't wait to get to know him or her and I hope him/her knows how excited we are for them to get him/her here safely. Every thing that I look forward for Boston and Bailey I look for forward to our 3rd! We can't wait to meet you!

By far on of my favorite Christmas traditions! After we open presents, go feed the homeless make ginger bread houses (or in our case gram cracker houses) we are off for night tubing!
I love spending the holidays with my family we always have so much fun together and I think this will stay a tradition in our family. Boston and Bailey loved it!
