Fun with Ellie

Mya is getting to the point now where she gets really really bored during the day. I can't wait for preschool to start! She is always wanting friends to come over it is so fun to have Ellie our neighbor be the same age as Mya. When they play, they start out and one house and play for a little while until they get bored, then they they run over to the other house and go back and forth all day. The other day they were playing and I just thought they were so cute sitting there playing the Wii so I took some pics.

The story behind the stache

So a few people have asked if Micah is growing a mustache thanks to my post about him and the dog, and thank goodness not anymore. About three weeks before I was due with Lexie Micah randomly decided he was not going to shave his mustache until I had the baby (don't ask me why, I told him everyday how hideously unattractive I thought it was but he kept it anyway) Well, all the guys at UPS decided they were going to grow one as well, At UPS the only facial hair you're allowed to have is a mustache, so they all had this ugly facial hair that all the wives hated. Anyway, I am glad to say he shaved it the day I had the little one. Soo for all of you women out there, there are not many men who can pull of a stache so if your husband says he is going to grow one, I guarantee they will probably look hideously unattractive. (no offense to anyone who has one already, I'm sure it looks good or you wouldn't have it)

This picture is of all the guys Micah works with. You can't see their mustaches very well in the picture, but they decided they needed to go out to dinner and celebrate their staches.

A sweet moment

On Sundays we usually go visit family and friends but today we decided to stay home and had a fun day with the kids. They wanted some popcorn and I was in the kitchen and looked over to see them sitting in front of the window watching the snow come down. It was one of those rare moments when they were being so sweet, not running around like crazy or whining or fighting over something. It was pretty cute.

My sweet husband

I had to post this for Micah to say sorry and thank you because he is so sweet and gave Tank away for me. I tried to handle having a dog in my house but I just couldn't do it. I told Micah if Tank could live outside we could keep him but Micah felt bad for him having to live outside so we decided to give him away. Micah loved Tank and has wanted a dog forever but our house is just not big enough for us and a dog and a new baby.

Thanks Micah for understanding and giving Tank away even though it was really hard for you to do!

Lexie update

Our little Lexie has been the best baby so far, (knock on wood). She has only been waking up once a night settling down at 9:00 or 10:00 at night and sleeping until 3:00 waking up for a little snack and then goes right back to sleep until 8:00 or 9:00. Too bad my other two wake up at seven every morning. She only cries when she has a burp and other than that she seems like she is going to be a sweet little thing. (fingers crossed). I keep waiting for her to not be so easy but it hasn't happened yet. Mya and Tay have been so sweet to her, Mya really is a big help, running around getting me diapers and wipes or giving her her binkie when she cries (I love that she takes a binkie, it is a lifesaver) it is fun to see her be a little mother to her.
Here are a few pics that my mom had on her camera from the hospital.

Crazy Quiet....For a moment

Things have been really quiet around our house this weekend. My amazing mom took Mya and Tay on Thursday. I was running on empty and in desperate need of some major rest. It has been soo nice/weird. It is so nice just being able to get up in the morning and only have to clean the house once and it stays clean ALL DAY! It is amazing! No little fingerprints, cracker crumbs, toys everywhere, Mya's little treasures strung throughout the house, and only having to get me and little Lexie ready for the day is a breeze, but man it is boring around here.
I am soo glad my mom is sweet enough to take my two crazy kids so I could recuperated but I am missing them. They come back tomorrow and I can't wait to see them. Even though it is nice to be able to sleep when the baby sleeps and not have to clean a bazillion times a day it is too quiet around here. Micah and I don't know what to do with ourselves today. We are pretty bored without the little munchkins running around. I can't wait to see them tomorrow.
Thanks mom for taking the kids. It was just what I needed to get some rest and recover from having little Lexie.

Our little Lexie

I finally got around to taking a few pictures of our sweet little one. She didn't cooperate very well but here are a few that turned out.
