Sugar Highs! Here we go...

The Great Easter Egg hunt is on! The cousins came over and the little scavengers all picked the yard clean!

Here's Reese (above) and Lindsey in the blue, Katy in the green and Morgan with the funny face below and two of my girls with their "spoils of war".

The line up of the "Sugar Thiefs" in front of the playhouse.

Happy Easter Everyone! (I know, a little late)

A Very Eggcellent Easter

I know I'm a little late on this... but I've been distracted with life. But here are the girls decorating Easter eggs.

Once we finished with the eggs... we were ready for the big Easter Egg hunt in the yard with the cousins-- of course we used plastic eggs with (my oh so not favorite) candy-- instead of the boiled eggs.

Girl World Has Been Infiltrated

In case you weren't born with the "I can read ultrasounds" talent-- let me help you out. The baby does not have three legs. That's something we've never seen before. Yup, we're expecting a true, blue baby boy. After three girls... we just didn't think this was possible. In fact, Byron was extremely quiet on the way home from the doctor's office. I think he had convinced himself we would be adding to Girl World.
So now I don't feel so bad about giving away all of those darling girly outfits the minute-- no the second-- Reese grew out of them.
So now we are at square one when it comes to names. Greer had "Aquamarine Bella" all picked out for us. Somehow, I don't think that will be quite fitting. We're officially open for suggestions. My one friend has already suggested "Bryan". That's only funny if you know that my dad called Byron "Bryan" on and off for the first several months of our marriage.
Oh, I'm almost 5 1/2 months along. We are due in on Sept. 15th. It took me this long for reality to sink in. So now you know.

Are You Sitting Down?????????

So I've been putting this post off and off and off. I guess I'm still recovering from the shock of it all. But since I can't hide it anymore, I'll come clean. I am pregnant. Yup, if you need to read that sentence again, I'll wait.....
Byron and I now fall into that little category of the 1 percenters... where birth control did not work. My doctor tried to make me feel better by telling me he sees two groups of "Oops Babies" moms-- teenagers and women in their 40's. Those of you who know me probably know what category I'm in.
So this is what happens when you get rid of every baby item in your home, give away all of your maternity clothes and are mentally prepared for the next phase of life. Reese starts pre-school two days a week next year. This is also what happens when you start a new business with a friend and are busier than ever. Crazy, eh?
P.S. I know, I know-- several of my high school friends are grandmothers at this stage. Just call me a late bloomer.

Really, we're just young girls trapped in "getting older" bodies. Eight of us got together to celebrate my dear friend Joannah's big 4-oh!. (She's the one in the crown). Other than the "bling" theme--- we all gave her jewelry, we did a spin off from the chick flick-- Momma Mia. We had the music blaring, Greek food and had silk scarves on us and everywhere. Wow, it's been years since I stayed up way too late, ate way too much and talked non-stop. Can I tell you it was glorious? Byron says in his next life he wants to come back as a woman. He says just imagine the *&^$# he would get if he called up the guys and said "let's get together for a slumber party.... whaddya think?"
