So, you would all kill me if I said "just kidding" about the last post, huh!?! hahah!!, it's true! Baby #5 is on the way...and we couldn't be happier!! Crazy...but happy!! :-) Thank you for all of the comments!! 27!!! Good grief!

So, I have a wonderful story that goes along with us deciding to get pregnant. Some of you said that you thought I was done. Well...that means that you never talked to me about it because I have always been on the fence. I never felt like I was completely done. Ryan on the other hand wasn't open to discussing it. So, here's the story. Ryan's dad passed away in May. About a month or so after he passed away, Ryan had a dream about him. He was holding the hand of a little child. Ryan didn't tell me about the dream...I think he was a little scared about what it meant. Then about a week or so later I started having baby dreams. Ryan and I talked about it and he told me about his dream as well. We decided that we should pray about it. Sure enough we felt so strongly that we were to start trying. I have had 1 cycle since stopping the pill (too much info??? sorry!). Here's the very interesting part. My due date is the day that Ryan's dad passed away. Can you believe that? I guess when it's meant to be, it's meant to be, huh?

Well, that's my story....and I'm sticking to it!!

Shout out

I just need to give a big shout out to my wonderful sister-in-law Tiffany. She is the Queen of Organizing. She came over this week and helped me organize the kids' rooms. They are just so overwhelming. She loves to do this and is super great at it. She brought over her label maker and we labeled containers, organized their closets and got rid of TONS of junk. It was so nice!! She is so awesome!

Anyone in need of an organizer?? I have a referral for you!! She's trying to start up her own business!!

Thanks Tiff!!! You're the best. So...what room can we do next?!?!?!!?! :-)

My husband celebrated his 10-year anniversary with his company earlier this year. A couple months ago they honored him with a certificate and a gift card to Tiffany's!! A $350 gift card, I might add!! So, what does he do? He found this beautiful necklace for me...with the help of my sisters (thanks Jamie & Tiff!). What a sweetheart, huh? It's absolutely beautiful!! I will have to post a picture later of me wearing it. I love it!! Thanks honey...I love you to pieces!!!

Piano lessons

This is a little plug for me. I am a piano teacher. If you are interested in having your child take lessons, please leave me a comment and I will get more information to you.

I have been teaching for about 6 or so years and have been playing the piano since I was 12. I truly enjoy teaching children. I love to see the look in their eyes when they get it or play a song that they know. Anyways, I am recruiting students, so if you are know what to do!!

Grandparents Day

My parents always forget about Grandparents Day, but we always seem to remind them! It was this past Sunday. We sang a cute little song for them that I found on the internet. The song is sung to "Take me out to the Ballgame". It goes like this:

Let's go see our Grandparents
Take us there for a while.
Mommy & Daddy both need a break.
We'll play games and we'll stay up real late!

Oh, we'd like to thank our Grandparents
For all the things that they do.
So it's time to say.............."You're the Best!
And that WE....LOVE....YOU"!!!!

Cute huh? I took picture of the kids with my parents and with my mother-in-law. It was a nice day. We had my mother-in-law over for dinner. We gave them a singing card and a cute little book about Grandparents. I hope they liked it!!!

First Day of School!! Ryan says, "We're free at last!" The kids had a fun first day of school. They all really like their teachers. I have a 4th grader, a 2nd grader and a little Kindergartener!! It is so nice to have them back in school again...back on a routine. It will be weird to have only 1 kid at home during the day. Enjoy the pictures of the kids in their new outfits on their first day of school.
