Ok, it's between these two

We're still having a hard time but we've narrowed it down to either Rhett or Cael. One problem with Rhett is that both my girls can't say their "R's." So it comes out "Wet!"

Yeah, everyone is asking so this is the name update. Not yet. The hospital is putting pressure on us to have a name by Wednesday. So...we'll see. What a tough kid!

Any Suggestions?

Ok, we are now opening up the name search to our friends! We still cannot come up with anything for our little guy. If anyone has any "great" names out there would you please share?

Hip Hip Horray!!!

That's right! We had our baby! He was born on October 16th at 1:30 in the afternoon. We still have no name for him yet, by far our hardest to come up with. He was 7lbs. 10oz. and 21 inches long. He was also our biggest baby. The kids are just loving him to pieces! He'll never lack any attention!

My labor story: So we went in at eight in the morning to be induced. I wasn't feeling well and was anticipating my epidural. As the pain was getting worse the nurse informed me that they bumped me again off the list! I was not happy about it. So finally at 1:00 they get me it. And within 15 minutes it's worn off! So they dosed me again, and the baby came 5 minutes later! So...I really feel like I had this kid natural, not my plan.

All in all, we are glad it's done and happy to have another little one around!

Oh What Fun!

What's more exciting than to wake up and see several inches of unexpected snow!? The kids were so excited they thought church would surely be canceled! Imagine the looks on their faces when they were told they would have to wait till after church to play in it! So first thing, we get home we start going through the garage bins to find our winter snow clothes.

The kids had a blast building their snowman, then they made a ramp to sled down the yard. Since our yard is slanted it works perfect!

I would call myself "Mom of the Day" by this point! After fun in the snow we made our "Spooky Halloween Cookies."

Hmm.. which cookie cutter to pick?

And the best part of all, the frosting! No wonder we have dental issues!

Princess Tayah proud of her work.

What a priceless bite! The frosting was on so thick it was dripping off the cookie!

What a fun filled day, the kids will sleep great tonight!

Rock On!

Presenting the Family Room Rock Band! One of our kids most favorite things to do is for Jared to put on super loud deafening music. Once the kids hear music, they turn into super rockers!

Is it any surprise that Tayah is the lead singer?

Painting Update....

Ok, as of tonight I can't post any photos because I screwed up!!! I guess you need a primer for RED! So after doing what I thought was three awesome coats, you can still see paint lines!!! So guess what I'm doing tomorrow? If I can even move, talk about being sore!

I'm Painting!

Yes, I'm painting my family room today! Why do I do these things when one I probably shouldn't be and two, I really don't feel like it!? Oh well, at least it will be done before the baby is here right? If I left it for "someone else" to do, it most likely would never happen, lol! If it works out I'll take a picture of it, I hope it turns out!

An Amara Moment

Amara always has a way out of things, her little mind seems to have a solution to everything. She got kind of bored today and dumped out the crayon bucket. I asked her to pick them up and of course she said "no." I said, "Mommy has a big baby in the tummy, I can't bend over and do it." She said, "I can't do it either....Dad doesn't have a baby in his tummy, him can do it when he's done with work!"
