Hi! My name is Kaitlin and I am a slacker!

I realized that I have not posted in the past couple of months. This could be mistaken for the fact that our life has been boring lately, actually, the exact opposite is true! We have had Valentines day, Maggie's birthday (what a terrible mom I am for not posting about her birthday!), a beach trip, Spring Break, T-ball season has started and more recently...

We have found out that we are having another BOY this time around and we are all so excited! Maddox cannot wait to meet his baby brother/partner. Maggie, on the other hand, will have a rude awakening come August, she has no idea that her world is about to be shaken.

I can't believe it is already EASTER and I must say that I am so thankful that Spring is HERE!! We went to church tonight and on the way home Maddox told us ALL ABOUT "the tomb that was rolled away and Jesus wasn't in there anymore!" He was so excited to learn this new revelation! There really is nothing that makes me more proud than when he learns new things about Jesus and when he says "I love you Jesus!" It really does make my heart melt!!

I hope you all have a blessed Easter! Hopefully, I will get our Easter pictures up soon!!

Spring Fever!

I realize that it is a little early to be getting Spring Fever, but I am sooooooo ready for some warm weather. I am not a Winter person at all, and I have never been a fan of cold, dark, wet, dreary days. I could seriously just hibernate all Winter.

There has not been a lot going on around here. We are just trying to stay warm and away from nasty colds and runny noses. I have been super pregnancy sick for about two weeks now and I am really hoping that goes away soon. Each time I have been pregnant, I forget how sick I get and then it suddenly hits me. I am 10 weeks now and I go to my first Dr. appointment on Monday. I am a little late going to my first appointment, but when I go I like to see a little more than a bean. At this point of my pregnancy our baby already has fingers and toes, small ones, but they are there. It is already an inch long! YEA!! Hopefully we will get a good picture and I will post it on Monday.

Holiday Happenings....

Wow, have we done a lot this season! With so much more to do!

A few weeks ago we had breakfast with Santa. The morning we were going to see Santa, Maddox asked me, "Mommy, what do I need to tell Santa I want?" This worked out SO perfect. We had already bought all of his Christmas gifts, so I immediately started taking inventory out loud!! I mentioned to him things I REALLY thought he would like, that were sitting upstairs in the closet ready to be wrapped and placed under the tree!! I mean, that one so worked out in my favor!!! Maggie is not buying into the whole Santa thing. Maddox has informed Santa of things that Maggie wants. He is so worried that Maggie will not get anything, because she will not sit on his lap. What a good big brother!

Maddox (on his best behavior in the presence of santa) and Maggie (who may not be getting toys because of the way she is acting, according to Maddox)

Maddox, Ethan and Santa

Cousins!! (Mallory, Adrienne, Ethan, Maddox, Maggie and Jackson)

Some of Maddox's favorite play friends are Hayden and Ella. A few weeks ago they came over to play and decorate Christmas cookies. They had a great time together, as always!


Friday night, we had dinner with the Orton's at Chuckee Cheese. Yay, for a fun night with friends! It was so nice going to a place where the kids can run around and not be made to sit in their seat for dinner. With three little ones we needed to be at a place where "A kid can be a kid!"

I will post pictures soon!! (forgot my camera that night, oops!)

Every year Maddox and I make a Gingerbread House. He LOVES this tradition. Maggie is not quite still enough for this fun craft, hopefully she can join in the fun next year! Maddox always says that we are "on a date" when just the two of us do something fun. So, we decided that while Maggie was napping, we would "go on a date and make a Gingerbread House!" I LOVE going on "DATES" with him. SO FUN!

Saturday night we went to ride the Polar Express with my mom, aunt and cousins. It was so much fun!! The kids loved the bells, riding the train, Christmas carols, hearing the book "The Polar Express" read to them, cookies and milk, ornaments, and seeing Santa (again) was a special treat!

Sunday, we had Christmas with my Dad's family. We ate a yummy meal and visited with family that we do not get to see enough. There will be pictures posted soon!!

We Heart Disney World!!

We have been back from Disney for a week now, but I have been so busy I haven't been able to post about our trip. We had a great time and as always, we hated to leave!! The kids had a blast and it was even more special because their Mimi was there to ride all of the fun rides with them.

Favorite Rides:
Maddox- has been, and seems like will always be "Buzz Lightyear" He cannot get enough of this ride. The lines were fairly short while we were there, so we would ride, get off the ride, and then ride again... times 20. As you may remember from previous post, Matt and I are so competitive that we would try to beat each other on how many points we could get. Therefore, the ride became more about who got the most points than Maddox riding his favorite ride. Pretty sad and selfish, huh???

Maggie- "Winnie the Pooh" was her favorite ride by far. She would wave to each character as we rode by them... and I do mean everyone of them. She would get so mad as we would wait in line and the honey pot in front of us would load and move on. You have never seen a fit pitched like this one. She could not believe that the honey pot would seriously "drive off" without her. All the while, Maddox standing there saying "this ride is for babies!"

Both kiddos- "It's a Small World" was a huge hit for both of them. Has anyone (Ok, I'm talking about adults here) ever been on that ride and not noticed how it NEVER ENDS?? But, it's for the kids! The smile on their faces is so much better than the ride itself.

This time, there was a new "Toy Story" ride at Hollywood Studios. It was a fantastic ride! Can you believe people would wait in line 85 minutes for 1 ride?? Our family does not have the patience for that. We did wait 40 and can I tell you that it was quite possibly the longest 40 min. of my life... but so worth it!

Maddox thought the Monorail was AMAZING!! Definitely a highlight.

Anyway, enough chatting... here are the pictures







And... for all of you bama fans, we were still supporting THE TIDE while on vacation!!
