So lately Myles has become obsessed with unrolling all the toilet paper in the house. Tonight I went to run some errands and when I returned Scott was in the kitchen, Hazel and Courtney were outside playing and Megan was in the tub. Myles comes crawling out to me looking like this...
What could he possibly have been up too?? It's just a mystery in my book. He is so cute and innocent its hard to believe that he can make such a big mess!! I would have taken a picture of the mess, but with Megan in the tub the toilet papered floor is now covered with water...not a pretty picture.

Today Scott came home from work, walked in the door and was holding these...LILYS my favorite! I was sooo surprised. I have to take a moment and talk about how amazing my husband is. I truly am the luckiest woman alive. Scott truly is an answer to my prayers. Some of my favorite things about him are...
1. he loves and teaches the gosple to our kids
2. He is very smart
3. He TRIES to understand me
4. He has a sense of humor
5. He has many talents including...cooking, cleaning, gardening, fixing things, and kissing (yes, he is a great kisser, I consider it a talent).
6.He is "confident"
7. He is still a kid at heart
8. He is a great dresser. dress shirt and tie to work everyday!!
9. He loves our kids
10.I know he loves me.

Yep you guessed it, #5 is on the way .... due December 5, 2008. This came as quite a suprise to us as we were doing everything to prevent this from happening (blasted Scott and his super sperm!) I have come to terms with the fact that this little one just really is supposed to be in our family. I have already met with my doctor (who kind of looked at me in disbelief) and had an ultrasound. The girls are really excited. I showed them the ultrasound pic, Megan's responded "Soooo it has no body, just a head?" Hazel has decided that if it's a girl we should name her Ariel or Barbie, and if it's a boy it will be Prince Eric. The girls are too funny and so excited. I am thankful for our family and I am getting excited for this new one to join the zoo already in progress!!

This whole week I haven't been feeling well. It started out with a sore throat, then I started loosing my voice, This continued along with congestion and a stuffy/runny nose (the worst) and finally today I have COMPLETELY lost my voice! It kind of took my kids by surprise when all I could do is lip to them to get up and get ready for school! Hazel and Myles went with me to the doctor. I whisper to Hazie what I want to say and she carries on the conversation. Many of the receptionists thought that this was the cutest thing. She has also been answering the phone for me and translating what I lip to her. Most people just laugh. I am so greatful for her!! This sucks!! I feel helpless! The doctor gave me a HUGE shot of antibiotics so hopefully in a couple of days I can yell again. Things just aren't the same around here. It deffinetly makes me take a step back and evaluate how I speak to my kids. Anyhoo....Funny thing happened at the doctor office. We were in the waiting room. Hazel was bored. She went over to look at the childrens books. She came stomping over with a very mad, disturbed look on her face. She blurted out.....Mom, look the doctor STOLE our book!! Why did he do that? I am going to go tell him that stealing is wrong. As she stomped off toward the doctor I grabbed her. I just had to laugh and try to lip the best that I could that they make more than one copy of a book and people buy them. This one was not ours. She was relieved. Too Cute!!

Myles is truly my little man....a mama's boy in every sense of the word. I love it!! He is such a great addition to our family. I can't believe it has been a year since he came into our lifes. His B-day was March 16th. He still isn't walking, but he sure can crawl! He is a very snuggly, shy, sweet baby. (I should say little boy.)
He loves to play catch with his dad, play cars, talk jibberish, and eat. I love you Myles and I am looking forward to many adventures with you!
Here are some pictures from Myles party....KayDe made the AMAZING cake. Thanks again KayDe!!!

Sorry this is soooo late! I finally had a chance to sit down and think about last month today so I am going to play catch up before I forget.
Megan turned 6 March 6th. She is growing up so fast!!!! She is in kindergarden and hates every moment. (and loves to make is miserable for the teacher as well!) It is hard to believe that she was only 10 months old when Scott and I started dating. Time sure does fly. She is the one that keeps me on my toes. Life is never boring with Megs around. She is so full of life and curiousity! She is my football player. She doesn't mess around when it comes to knocking off the competition. I love her with all my heart. I wouldn't trade her for the world. I love you Meggie moo cow!!!
Here are some of the pics from her B-day
