Family Photoshoot

Special thanks to Katie (photography page link in sidebar) for another great photoshoot!  It certainly isn't easy to wrangle four excited kids into anything resembling a good photo, but she can work wonders!  <3

It's official!

The baby-baby is crawling!  Benjamin has been "mobile" for a few weeks now, but today he figured out going forward.  He is all over the living room now!  Woohoo!

Pumpkin Farm!

We went to the pumpkin farm this past Thursday and the kids loved it.  :)  They remembered going last year and were super excited to go again.  I think we're going to try to go again soon because it was so overcast and most of my pictures ended up blurry.  :(

Picasa has been updated now too!

It was 102*F here yesterday...

Or 106*, depending on which thermometer you used.  Either way, it was REALLY hot.  So, what's a momma to do with her crazy kids when they need to get out of the house for a little while and it's hot?!  Well, thanks to a fun find on Pinterest, the kids got to "excavate" animals from icebergs!  Really, mom just froze some of their toys in waterballoons.  :)
It was tons of fun, super easy, and very cheap (balloons were under $1 after a coupon!).  Here is a sneak peek picture... the rest will be on Picasa shortly... I'm uploading them now.

New Pics on Picasa

Picasa (now called Google + Pictures, I think) has been updated with pics from the last 2-3 months.  I still have to get about 5 months worth of pictures off the external hard-drive to finish updating, but it's something for now!  Woo!

First Day of School

Yes, we are starting school.  No, we're not entirely crazy.  :)  The kids are begging for school to start again and I've always liked the idea of year-round schooling.  So, here we are... Day 1 done!

He's Here!

Benjamin Alexander has arrived!  He was born February 27, 2012, at 10:23 pm.  He weighs 5 lbs, 15 oz, and is 18 inches long.  He is our earliest at 35 weeks, 4 days gestation.   He is super cute, and tiny, with loads of hair!
He will be in the NICU for at least a few days.  He is currently on a CPAP machine for breathing.  CPAP helps him breathe, but does not breathe for him.  He is being given 25% oxygen through the machine, which is great, since room air has 21%.  Once he gets his breathing under control, they will start working on his feeding.  While he's on the CPAP, he will have to be fed through an IV only.
The nurses are happy with his current status and we're hopeful that he will not have to be in the hospital for very long.  I will update as much as possible as I try to recover and spend time with Benjamin.  Hopefully I'll have pictures up soon!
