yup that's correct....we are expecting baby #3!!! yes you are also correct that taylor is only 9 months old, and no this was not a big huge accident. we are really that crazy! LOL taylor has been such a wonderful easy going baby we figured we would not avoid anything and just let the next one come whenever it was ready. honestly i did not expect it to happen the very next month but guess life is full of suprises. we are due the end of june and taylor will be 15-6 months old. landen will be a few months past 4 yrs. we are not going to find out the gender of this one since we already have boy and girl stuff on hand. guess that means we will need two names going with us to the hospital, so any suggestions that sound good with landen and taylor would be greatly appreciated. hope you all enjoy this ride that is about to get very crazy!!!

we look forward to the new adventure in our lives and cant wait for the little thing to get here!

2009 family pictures

have i mentioned before how much i love the fact that one of my best friends happens to be a professional photographer?? it's soo nice being able to get awesome quality pictures done and know the person doing them and her knowing me enough to know exactly what moments i want her to capture on film! well last month we had family pictures done since we hadnt done them since taylor was 2 months old. its sooo much nicer to have them done by an actual photographer compared to just going to the mall and paying JCPenney's to click the camera (not complaining about them, especially since my sister works there now, but its just different). so here are a few of my favorites from the one hour photo shoot. and feel free to contact me for info for the photographer. im sure she would love some extra business!!
temporarily on hold with the pics, they are too big so i gotta shrink em down.

we are still alive!

so the past month has been kinda hectic around here. and with the decent camera still MIA, i havent been taking many pictures. on a good note, i have my laptop back up and running. my wonderful step-dad had a laptop that died and just so happened his screen would fit on my laptop so he gave it to me. so now i am mobile! i do have super cute pics of the kids in their halloween costumes to put up, but they're on the other computer. so i guess this is just a quick one to let everyone out there that reads this, that im still alive. i will try to get up to date in the next couple days. and with pictures as soon as my new memory card comes in the mail!
