Adios Amigos

This post is a day late because we were sending off our very good friends yesterday. We are all very sad to see them go, but excited that they get to be closer to their families and are moving forward in the direction they want their lives to go. We have loved every minute we got to spend with them!

Summer is coming to a close for Dave, he starts up school next week. We have enjoyed having him home so much! Here are a few pics of our summer fun!

Hello Wednesday

A week or so ago we had an awesome storm blow through town. Aiden and I were alone at home and we had a blast. Since almost all of our windows lack screens, we got to enjoy the storm in a non-traditional fashion.  We could not enjoy it from our porch because the water flooded the area, so we got to enjoy the storm by sitting in the window sill. Aiden loved the rain, hail, thunder and lightning. He truly is a kid after my own heart.

I don't really have any thrilling updates or news, we have spent most of July at home. I do however have fun pictures and videos to share! :)

One of the crabs from our fish tank. Aiden LOVES to search for the crabs!

 Aiden loves to put things on his fingers, just like his uncle Matthew with olives. Also notice, he is rocking superman underwear. We are in training.

 First time in a Bounce House. He LOVED it. I was terrified.

We made this video during the storm! Love this kid!

Drum Roll Please...

We have crammed our family into a little Toyota Corolla since the beginning of our relationship. It was a suitable car when it was just the two adults and two dogs. When Aiden came along, it was more than a little crammed. Now that we have another one on the way, we knew that we had to get a bigger car for our growing family. What better way to reveal the gender of our newest addition than by incorporating our first big purchase as a family. :)

A blue minivan for my band of boys. :) 
Little Connor John Sanders is due November 17 and we couldn't be happier!

Connor is an Irish name. It means to be "strong willed" and "wise." We chose the middle name John after my father. There is no person that Dave and I look up to more than my dad. He is a one-of-a-kind man and we cannot think of a better way to honor him than to name our youngest son after him. I am so glad that we get to bring our children into a world where they are a part of such a loving family. :)

Happy Wednesday All!! :)

Back in the Saddle

I feel as if I am constantly apologizing for my absence from the blog, which is more discouraging than you can even imagine. I was under the weather for awhile, which turned out to actually mean I was pregnant so that accounts for the couple months that I was not blogging. It is hard to muster up the strength to write a blog when you feel like death is knocking at your door. I am well into my 2nd trimester and feeling much better, so I figured there was no excuse for me not enter back into the blogging world.  Things have been pretty crazy in our lives, with some medical issues, travels, big purchases and overall life changes. I will work on bringing your up to speed in the coming weeks. Aiden is growing up so fast. He practically only speaks in complete sentences these days, with a few nonsense moments thrown in. He is loving having his daddy home for the summer, I am not looking forward to when Dave goes back to work and Aiden starts having Daddy withdrawals. While we were visiting my folks in California, my dad gave Aiden a hair cut. I was not sure about it at first, but it has really grown on me. It just makes my little man look to old. :(  Next week, I will reveal the gender of the little one growing in my belly. I know that there are a lot of people who are pretty curious to know. I would post a picture, but our ultrasound people are pretty terrible and the pictures turn out awful. They don't even remotely resemble a baby, the first picture looked like Skeletor!

Of course if I am going to get back to blogging, I have to come back with a bang. Here is a video of my happy go lucky little boy enjoying one of his favorite songs.
