A Few More Days........

As some of you already know, I am scheduled to be induced on Thursday, April 2 @ 5:00am at Saint Agnes Hospital. I am very excited to hold and love on my new little guy Jeremiah Scott, but at the same time I'm nervous about the procedures leading up to my delivery. Please pray for me that God will help calm my nerves and give me peace through it all. This is such an exciting time and I am truly grateful for the Blessings God has given our family again :)

I feel very Blessed for all my family & friends and I appreciate all your thoughts & prayers. Thanks for making me feel soooooo LOVED!

Fun Easter Project

Preston being cute as always :)

Preston & his cousin Micah working on their project.

The boys being silly showing off their project.

This was our fun Easter project the kids worked on yesterday and they had an absolute blast! We took clear soap dispensers and poured out about 1/2 the soap and filled it up with pony beads (easter colors) and clear small marbles. They laughed and giggled the whole time while dropping the beads in, especially when they hit the table and bounced to the floor. They added some easter foam stickers on the front & back and then added a cute bow. Preston was so excited about his cute decorated soap dispenser that he ran into his bathroom and stuck it on his counter to start using it right away. These soap dispensers turned out adorable and they would also make great gifts for the grandparents. The boys had so much fun making these, that I think we might make them again for a different holiday :)

Baby Dedication

Our little man being cool with his shades before leaving for church this morning.

Today was another special day for us. Our little Noah Thomas was dedicated to the Lord this morning at New Covenant Community Church with Pastor Scott Borman. Not only is this a special day for us as parents, but it reminds us of what we need to do in raising our children as Godly children and continuing our Christian Heritage. God is so good and I'm reminded daily with all the little things in life that sometimes we overlook.

Happy 3rd Birthday Preston!!!

Mommy, Daddy & Preston with his yummy chocolate cake with chocolate filling and white buttercream frosting. I'm already looking forward to the leftovers tomorrow :)

The little munchkins sitting at the kid's table eating cake.

Opening the presents was the most exciting part of the day. He was overjoyed with all the Magna Choo-Choo's he recieved that he's been wanting for a long time.

The kids were pulling the strings on Thomas The Train pinata hoping for all the candy to fall out.

Once the candy fell out, they were all excited to see how much they can collect in there little bags. The funny thing little Cuddle-bug collected the most candy the fastest and he was the youngest one here.

Preston turned 3 today and he was so excited to tell everyone about it. First thing this morning when we all woke up, he came running up to me saying "Mama.........I'm 3 today," with such a huge smile from ear to ear. He has been looking forward to his birthday party all week and he had such a wonderful time today with our family and friends. To top the day off, we headed to the park later this afternoon with cousin Micah and the boys had such a blast playing around. Needless to say..........the boys are wiped out from such a busy and fun filled day, they couldn't barely stay awake and they even went to bed early :)

The Zoo

Thanks to my Mom, Heather and Katie.......I had a wonderful time at the Zoo on Wednesday! It was a beautiful, but sorta chilly day, the Zoo was almost empty and it felt like we had most of the park to ourselves (that's my kind of zoo day). The kids really enjoyed themselves and I definately would love to take advantage of going again soon before the weather gets too hot!

New Nickname???

This might seem like a silly request, but...........

Ever since our 1st son was born, we nicknamed him hug-a-bug because of how much he loved to give hugs and love. When our 2nd son was born, his nickname soon became cuddle-bug because he always loved to be held and snuggled all the time. These nicknames suit them well and they love hearing their nicknames all the time. Now that our 3rd son will be arriving soon, I am trying to think of a few good nicknames that we can see would be a good fit once we see a glimpse of his personality. I want to keep it the same with ending in "bug" if possible. I am open for any suggestions you all may have. This will be fun to see what you all have in mind. Thanks for your help!
