Ashlyn 4th Birthday

Today my baby girl...I mean, BIG girl, turned 4! I can't even believe she is 4 already! Its seems like just yesterday she was a tiny little baby and now she is such a big girl! We have been so blessed to have her in our lives for 4 years! We could not have asked for a better little girl! She is so full of life and just makes me smile everyday! Before we know it, she is going to be a teenager....ahhhhh! Here are some pictures of our birthday photo shoot:)

We had such a great day with her today! She opened up her present from us...a new kitchen (the old one was not going to fit anymore when we move her into the other room) Then, we started off with her favorite breakfast, pink doughnut with sprinkles and chocolate milk. Next, we took her to Incredible Pizza Company to play a bunch of games and have lunch. And then, we took her to paint pottery, which she had never done before and loved! Of course, she painted a little puppy! We loved making the day so fun for her and I hope she remembers it for a long time!

Happy Birthday to my sweet Ashlyn! We love you so much!

Boys Boys Boys!




So many of my friends are having/had boys. These pictures are of me and two of my closest friends, Casey and Liz, that I've grown up with and known for almost 20 years. We all are having/had boys!!! We took the pictures together around Thanksgiving while all of us were still pregnant. Casey has already had her little one and Liz is due in a couple of weeks. It will be so great watching all of our sons grow up together like we did!

We're having a......


BOY!!! I really can't believe it! I was almost positive we were having a girl....but I was totally wrong. Jason and I are still a little shocked, but also very excited! Ashlyn is so excited that she is going to have a little brother! A lot of my close friends that are pregnant or have just had a baby are having/had boys so our little man is going to have a lot of friends. Oh and by the way...his name is going to be Brayden...not sure about the middle name yet. This is definitely going to start a new/different chapter in our lives, and we are truly blessed that God is giving us this little boy! Can't wait to see what he looks like!

This is how we told Ashlyn....
We were gonna wait til her birthday on Saturday, but I guess she got an early birthday present because we couldn't wait!
