Andrew loved 'carving' the jack o lantern. He didn't really carve anything or even scoop very many pumpkin guts out, Grandma Sandy did.

Okay... so maybe it's been a while. I'll try to include some events that have happened from after christmas up to now without blabbering on and on and on. You may have to scroll down a bit to catch it all. We have slower internet than we had before, so it takes FOREVER - literally - to download pictures. Sadly, I won't be posting as many as I want to.
February 4th was our 4th Anniversary. Due to the fact of celebrating with a cruise in Sept. '09 we decided not to do anything fancy... however Jake surprised me with THIS...
two days later,
Andrew's third birthday was Feb. 22nd. We had a little party for him with a few of our family members. We had a strep throat scare so we didn't invite many people. It didn't turn out the way I wanted. I was feeling sick all day and didn't get everything done that I wanted to. I managed to forget the balloons AND slaughter my first decorative cake. I made a train and though it didn't work out... ANDREW LOVED IT. :) He didn't want anyone else to eat it. He didn't want to eat it either but he sure loved picking the candy off. He enjoyed all his gifts, as did Grant, and it was fun to have family with us.
Andrew grows up more everyday. He keeps us laughing and on our toes. He loves insects, toy guns, books, playing at the park, digging in the dirt, dogs, laughing, being independent, singing primary songs, running around without his clothing, imitating dogs & spiders & Grant.
Soon after we found out we have a baby on the way, Jake recieved his acceptance for law school. While I should have been overwhelmed with excitement for him, fear at the thought of being a somewhat single mother of three young children while Jake goes to school struck me. I still have moments of engulfing fear at the thought, but I just have to believe that we can make it through. It's been done before, we can do it. I am so proud of Jake for all that he has done and all that I know he can accomplish. Although I know there will be plenty of hard days without Jake around, I am glad we have this opportunitee and I look forward to the adventure.
Part of our preparation for law school involves moving 10 hours from our
Here are some pics of the rooms in the house minus Jake's office.
Since we moved, Grant has been upgraded to a big boy bed. We tried to get Andrew to sleep in the BIG big boy bed but he was determined to keep HIS bed. That's okay, can't say I blame him. So, Grant gets to sleep in the big one and he does wonderfully!!
