A Day at the Park

Yesterday was really warm so we headed to our tiny little park across the street for some fun and games. Usually the kids aren't that interested in the swings - but this time I couldn't get them off! Bronwyn was scared everytime I pushed her swing but she didn't want to get down. Someone was there with a litter of wrinkly puppies and the kids had fun chasing them and being chased. Love the warm weather and hope we get out to enjoy more of it before it becomes HOT weather...

Happy Valentine's Day!

I got up early this morning to make breakfast for Tony and the kids. We had orage juice, bacon, and waffles with strawberries, whipped topping, and chocolate syrup.

Bronwyn's Room

When we found out we were having another set of twins I assumed at least one would be a girl so I opted to give Bronwyn's Queen size been to my sister Holly and take my bother Sam's twin bed when he moved back home before his mission. I've been searching for just the right bedding for her room - I was also looking for crib bedding that would that we know we are having two more boys it made the decision a little easier! I found a quilt that I really loved on ebay...but I wanted to see if I could find the accessories online anywhere. So I typed "Poppy Quilt" into my search engine and found that the quilt is originally sold at JCPenny and that it was nearly half off! I waited for our tax refund and splurged on the quilt, skirt, and drapes. I found the pink polka dot sheets at Target for $14.99 and I already had the green gingham pillow sham (found it a Coldwater Creek Outlet in Jackson Hole back in 2001). I also found the curtain rod at Target. She is really excited about how cute her room is - I am too! Oh...I got the headboard from a neighboor's yard sale last summer for $5. Yay! Gotta love a bargain!

Oh, by the way....

We had an unexpected ultrasound last week and discovered two little nubbins...Yep...two BOYS!!! I was worried that Tony would be disappointed that he wasn't getting another "sissy baby girl" but he says we'll just have another crack at it in 3-5 years. Lucky me....
So, we're all excited to welcome our two new boys to the family this summer. We're still deciding on names since Amos and Heidi snuck Spencer...
On our list are: Soren and Devon, Soren and Hudson, Peyton and Elijah, Peyton and Issac, LaDanian and LaQuisha (totally kidding! That was Tony's pick for boy/girl). All suggestions are welcome!
