4 weeks, and counting!

Here's the latest belly photo... I'm HUGE :) It was actually taken at 35 weeks. But as of tomorrow, we only have four more weeks to go (thank goodness!). We are SO ready and excited for the baby to come! Hopefully he/she will wait until after Madisyn's birthday party scheduled for March 10th, so that we don't need to reschedule.

Things have still been going wonderfully... minus the pinched nerve (if you've never had a pinched nerve, it is extremely painful!) I had last week and the extreme swelling I've had in my legs (especially the left) this week. The swelling was actually somewhat humorous since it was much more extreme in the left leg (looked like it belonged to a 300+ lb. woman) than the right. Thank goodness, any of this discomfort has no effect on the baby!

Rob and I are currently enjoying a wonderful weekend away from home, just the two of us :) It's been great to be able to get away one last time before the baby is born. We've enjoyed fantastic food out as well as a relaxing and restful couple of days. Thanks to our parents who are willing and eager to watch Madisyn while we're out of town!

Snow, snow, snow...

As most of you know, we had some crazy snow last weekend (I think they even considered it a blizzard). Sadly, we were stuck at home all weekend and had to miss our friends wedding :(

We were able to take Madisyn out on her sled and we got a few good pictures of the amount of snow. Notice how deep the snow was on the driveway that Rob was trying to snowblow (some of it was blown from the sides of the driveway, but none-the-less, we got a TON of snow... and I swear he was snowblowing at least once or twice a day!). I had never seen snow stick to houses and windows like it did!

We are a busy family of five! I enjoy time with my husband and kids, running, being outdoors, shopping for deals, and cuddling. My wonderful husband keeps busy playing with the kiddos, hunting, fishing, exercising and working on projects around the house. Madisyn is six, in 1st grade, loves being outdoors and isn't one bit afraid of bugs or worms! Landon is four, a spitting image of Daddy, and is the sweetest, naughtiest and funniest little boy, all in one! Tinley was born February 24, 2012 and has already blessed us beyond belief! Here's a glimpse into our crazy and wonderful lives... hope you enjoy!

Tiece of Cake

I've finally decided to make a blog (Tiece of cake) dedicated to cakes... as to not consume the family blog.
