We are still here...

The saddest part of my "excuse" for not keeping up on blogging is that we HAVE the internet at home now! And have for 3 months! Oh well.. I won't even attempt to justify my selfish behavior.

Winter is flying by (thankfully). We got a little surprise late November.. that is due late July. We are thrilled about becoming a family of five. Grant is convinced its a sister because "I prayed for one!". Tanner doesn't seem to really understand other than he knows where Baby Nana is (this is what the boys have nicknamed the baby).
The holidays came and went and were wonderful. The second week of January we spent 6 days in Florida with my parents. Exactly what the doctor ordered! (ok so maybe she didn't order me to go on vacation.. but she was definitely digging the idea). The boys had fun and Tanner talks about Floriday and Cocoa Beach almost everyday.
Tanner turned TWO last weekend. We had a great party with almost the entire family (13 kids ages 8 and under and 12 adults all hanging out at our house.. can we say SLIGHT chaos?). It was wonderful to watch all the cousins play and interact. And of course there was yummy cake and ice cream. We have just started being more serious about potty training.. although we aren't quite SUPER serious yet. Hopefully before Baby Nana comes we will be there.
We had quite the storm here this week so Robb got the day off. We have been going a little stir crazy but making the most of our random day together.. like making Curious George Robots and hauling out some long forgotten toys (who knew packing something away for a month could bring hours of renewed entertainment?).

God is blessing us and we want to be a blessing to others. Something I need to remind myself of when I have been holed up in the house for 3 days in a row, without a shower, wearing the same sweatshirt again (because let's be honest- they are the most comfortable).
We are so blessed!
