Stuck inside...

So Tropical Storm Isaac has made for a 3 day weekend! School was cancelled for today. You'd think we'd all be happy, right? Well, Jax came home from school sick last Thursday, missed school Friday and was actually looking forward to getting back to school today (and so was MOM!). But Isaac has caused us to have other plans. So its only 11:30 and we've already learned:

1. If we stand on a chair, we're more likely to fall off.
2. Pretty sure we've seen every episode of Sponge Bob Square Pants at LEAST 12 times.
3. Crockpots are glorious!
4. Legos are never completely picked up! (ask Jax's hiney. It'll tell you they don't feel good stuck in the couch)
5. There is no point to organizing the Tupperware cabinet if you don't have a baby lock to put on it.

Thoughts and prayers are with those that Isaac is, and possibly could affect!!

Where has summer gone?

So we have had a lot going on this summer! I'm super glad that we decided to put Jax in no activities until fall, because we are crazy busy!

Life with 2 boys, 3 boys is everything I thought it would be, and some.

Jace is just as energetic as his older brother, if not more. (monkey see-monkey do, right?) About 2 weeks ago he became mobile, and in just that short time he's now made it to the 3rd stair and pulls himself to standing so that he can reach his brother's Wii controllers. Jax seems to think he's fully capable of WWE...

Jax is...well, a 5 year old. Sweet and rotten all at the same time. I'm glad he's still secretly a snuggler and still likes it when I tuck him in. But I could do without the back talk and whiney fits about extremely minor things. (like, "Why do I have to take a bath tonight? I only got in the pool today, ran around outside after and then had a mud fight!") He'll start Kindergarten this fall (sniffle, sniffle) and he's super excited! We've decided to send him to Immanuel Lutheran School. It reminds me a lot of my elementary school, First Lutheran. Jax will be playing soccer again this fall. I think he asks me everyday if its "time for soccer to start yet?". Jackson loves being an older brother and ADORES his younger brother...most of the time ;)

My biggest boy, Josh, is loving Florida just as much as the rest of us. He's really enjoying work and the people he works with. He loves the fact that you can play baseball here in DECEMBER! And likes that he gets to get some sunshine almost every day!

Honestly, this summer went by way too fast, and I have a feeling its only going to get faster from here on out. :)

My boys look alike!

So I used to think everyone was kookoo when they told me they thought Jace looked just like Jax. But as I was looking through some of Jax's baby pictures, I came to realize that I might have been in a complete bubble when Jax was a baby- And I don't remember anything correctly!!

Who is who???

They are so handsome!

You should check it out. 10/9c on NBC. :) I'm going to get Jax in bed, pop a bowl of popcorn, and snuggle up with my hubby on the couch!

Today I am thankful for:

The beautiful Florida weather!

I love that we have constantly lived outside since we have moved here to Florida. We have not had our air conditioning on for about 2 weeks now! Its fantabulous!!

Being Thankful # 12

Today I am thankful for:

Josh's clothes!! Yes, I am to the point in this pregnany where I can no longer fit in most of my own clothes. My everyday attire is now Josh's sweatpants, Josh's t-shirts, Josh's sweatshirts. My belly band doesn't even fit anymore! I am definitely counting down the days- 6 weeks, 3 days left! ;)
