Hayden's got talent!

We are still trying to figure out where he learned how to do this.

Let's Go Tarheels!!

Hayden spent Thursday and Friday at home with Greg while I worked. One of those rare occasions where the two of them get to spend some quality time together. I believe they watched basketball all day both days and made videos. This is one of those videos. My boys are too funny!

If you notice in the video Hayden's hair is a little long. That is Greg's doing, he doesn't want him to cut it. I am outnumbered and often don't win many battles. Greg is refusing to cut his hair too. I'm hoping they will both give in shortly and get hair cuts. We will see.

Let's Go Heels!

Saturday Morning Thoughts

It is currently 8:30 am on Saturday morning, it's cold and raining! Greg is asleep next to me and Hayden is still sleeping!!! I don't remember the last time I had a few moments to myself like this. It really is a beautiful thing. So much has been happening in our lives lately it's kind of a crazy mess. We've chosen to sit back and just let things take it's course. We can't stress about things anymore.
We found out about 2 weeks ago that the house we are currently living in (we rent) is in foreclosure. The ginormous amount of money that we pay our lousy landlord every month has not been paying his mortgage. After talking to many lawyers we've found out that there is nothing much that we can do, except sit and wait and see what happens. Our landlord has insured us that everything will be taken care of and we have nothing to worry about. We aren't exactly sure we believe him. The foreclosure hearing is on April 4, we should know something more by then. The house is supposed to be sold on April twenty something. We could have no where to live. But, since we are in a binding contract with our landlord we can't do anything until the house is bought by the bank. Keep in mind, Baby Cole is due to make his grand entrance June 8, could be earlier! But, I'm not worrying about it.

Speaking of Baby Cole, I'm 28 weeks already! Seriously?!? Where did the time go? I go to the doctor again on March 26, for my 30 week appt. It just doesn't seem possible to me. I can't believe that he will be here soon. Hayden is so excited and asks about him constantly. Of course he calls him "Lightening McQueen", but you have to admit, it's kind of cute! He says he want two baby brothers but I told him to wait and decide after this one gets here, he may change his mind. I'm still feeling great and plan on working as long as I possibly can. I will confess that I'm having a hard time getting up and down off the floor every five minutes! It's good for me though. I'm starting to get a little uncomfortable especially when Cole is in my rib cage, I have such a hard time breathing. I don't remember much of Hayden's pregnancy besides being in the hospital but this one has been so much easier. Thank Goodness!

Last weekend we celebrated my mom's birthday at the Cheesecake Factory. And then we came home to watch UNC beat Duke!!!!! Today hopefully we will watch them beat FSU! Here are a few pictures from mom's birthday. Sorry mom but I've got to post some pictures of you so everyone knows you were there. At least it's not on facebook, right?

We all had a great time! Look forward to doing it again next year!

The perfect day

  • Oh my was today a beautiful day...I love spring!
  • waking up next to an amazing husband
  • getting hugs and kisses from the sweetest little boy in the world
  • surprising my mom by showing up at her house for an impromptu visit. (I haven't seen her since January)
  • Eating lunch and spending time with Hayden and my mom at the park
  • Seeing James who looks soooo good. I can't believe how good and healthy he looked today. Makes me smile!
  • Spending the rest of the afternoon with my sister and her kids. Cleaning our cars and letting the kids be kids.
  • Grocery shopping with two perfect little 3 year olds. (even though they talked non-stop the entire time, I can't believe I shopped for the entire week and didn't forget a thing!)
  • Dinner, bath and movie for Hayden and Landon
  • both boys asleep without a problem
  • Quiet time alone with Greg

And tomorrow will be even better. Lunch with my mom, Nikki and Justin for mom's birthday! Then home to watch the Heels beat Dukes butt in some basketball with Greg!!!!!

SNOW DAY (part 2)

The snow sure does make our house pretty. I'm not even sure exactly how much snow we got this time. I do know that it isn't nearly as much as we got last month. The roads are pretty much clear at this point. However, the temperature keeps dropping, so I am sure the roads will be bad tonight. And if you've ever driven in NC in the snow you know that NO ONE knows how to drive!! So, I'm staying home!

Hayden thought that this Magnolia tree needed to be cleaned off. I think it was a bigger job that he had anticipated!

Hayden's attempt to get me with a snow ball. The snow just wasn't sticky enough. Snow balls just kind of fell apart mid air. He sure is cute though.

Don't be fooled...this is only a snow angel. Hayden has not exactly been an angel lately. Although, his behaviour this week has been much better than weeks before. Hopefully, he is getting out all of his misbehaving before the baby is born...ha!

Man, we made one cute kid!!!

I told Hayden that it was cold and we should probably go inside. His response was "but mommy, I've got to drive my truck!" The truck didn't move.

I do enjoy snow days, but I don't enjoy the actual snow. It does give me an extra day to get things done around the house which is always nice.


Today would be so much more fun if Greg was here. Instead, Hayden is stuck with me and I hate snow. Absolutely despise it. I don't like to be cold. It's 8:27am and Hayden has asked me if we can go out and play probably 35 times. Poor little guy, I promise I'll take him out I just have to prepare myself.

This is from the last time it snowed, about a month ago.
