Happy Birthday Jared!

Today is the start of a busy week here in our home. Today is Jared's 29th Birthday, Wednesday we will be welcoming Baby #4, Saturday Ella turns 2, and next Monday Jared and I will celebrate 7 years of marriage!
I wanted to take some time to wish by fabulous husband a Happy Birthday! I am so thankful that 29 years ago in Las Vegas a little baby boy was born, I would not be the person I am today with out him, and I am so glad that I get to be his wife.
Happy Birthday Jared! Thanks for being you! I love you!

Graduation Day!!

Last Tuesday Landon graduated from Preschool. Before I had kids things like Preschool and Kindergarten graduation seemed so silly to me, but now that I am a mother I totally see the merit in these celebrations. Landon was so excited for graduation day. He, along with the other kids in his class, had spent a long time putting together a cute little graduation program full of cute little songs and skits. I got most of the songs on video but I figure you all probably aren't as interested in those as Jared and I are. Here are some pictures from Landon's big day.

All dressed up and ready to graduate!
Waving to his adoring fans.

Landon with the rest of his graduating class. Landon has been in school with most of these kids for the past two years. It is a little sad that they won't all be together next year in Kindergarten.

Landon and his best friend!

Landon with his teacher Miss Debbie. Miss Debbie is probably the most awesome Preschool teacher ever! It was so comforting to know that when I sent Landon to school he was being watched over by someone who loved him like he was their own. It honestly makes me a little sad to think that we will move before all of our kids have the opportunity to attend Preschool with Miss Debbie, we love her that much.
Landon with his diploma, next stop Kindergarten!!
It seems like for most of Landon's life I have been anxiously looking forward to the next big stage of his life, but now that he is getting ready to start "big kid school" it seems like time has flown by way too fast. I am so thankful for Landon and I am so proud of the person he is becoming.

Best Mother's Day Gift Ever!

This year Tori's Birthday fell on Mother's Day. Sharing Mother's Day with Tori's Birthday this year has made it a little bit more special for me. Above all this Mother's Day I am thankful that I have the opportunity to be a Mom. I know I have a long way to go before I am the kind of Mother that I hope to someday be but I am so thankful to my children who have taught me so much about love and life. I am also thankful for all the Mother's in my life who have influenced me and have set such great examples for me in my life. I hope you all have wonderful Mother's Day!
Back to Tori's Birthday.
It is hard to believe that my little girl is already 3! Tori is such a sweet girl and I love being her Mom. She is always reminding all of us how much she loves us. She is calm, content, and happy (most of the time) and I can honestly say she never really went through a terrible two's stage (though maybe that means we are in for it now that she is 3). She is so smart and so beautiful and such a great sister to Landon and Ella. Happy Birthday Tori, I love you!!

29 more days!

I just looked at my blog and realized that it has been a month since the last time I wrote anything, sorry. We are doing well, I have just been tired and haven't felt much like taking pictures or posting on my blog.
We found out recently that my C-Section is scheduled for June 2nd, so only 29 days away! I am excited to meet this little guy and I am really looking forward to not being pregnant anymore. I have had to have ultrasounds done every week for the past month or so and at one about a week ago they did a 3-d ultrasound for me. The pictures are kinda creepy but kinda cool too!
