So, I’ve been MIA, but for good reason, I promise. Work has been crazy busy (remember you can always find me blogging for Hostess with the Mostess blog weekly, on pinterest, and on Facebook), I had two December birthday parties to plan, Christmas/Holiday cards to design, and everything else that comes with the holiday season. My poor blog suffers, I know! I am trying to make it my New Years resolution (though I don’t really believe in them) to blog more. Something entirely do-able, like once a week.

I’ve also had another good reason to be MIA. I am proud to OFFICIALLY announce that we (and when I say “we” you know I’M the one not sleeping, battling morning sickness, weight gain, and everything else, but my hubby deserves some credit, right?) are just over 12 weeks pregnant with our fourth child. As many of you know, we already have 3 amazing boys. Everyone keeps speculating whether we are having another boy, or alas that elusive little girl. Frankly, I’m not very patient so, as soon as I can find out what we are having, I will let you all know!!!

I can’t ever do anything easy and that goes for announcing to our friends and family that we are expecting again. I found a couple good ideas on pinterest and adapted them for our situation. I used the film strip wedding invitation and this film strip style baby announcement. Just minutes after I took a pregnancy test, I made the boys pose for pictures. Yes, Jackson is holding the “pee stick” in the one photo. His face cracks me up! Let me know what you think? It was super cheap to do and everyone seemed to really enjoy opening them!

Just a side note, I went to the photo center at Costco and asked for their empty film canisters. I used a bottle opener and carefully pried off the bottom. You can also buy empty fill canisters that you have to assemble.

Happy New Year! I hope to “see” you all more this year!!!!
