sugar rush.

We ate a lot of candy yesterday.
Like a lot.
But that is totally legal one day a year... right?

Now we are on sugar detox around here....
not helpful that we still have doughnuts, cupcakes, sees chocolates, and cookies still hanging around.
Maybe we will start tomorrow.

Happy late Valentines day to you all.
Hope your holiday was as fantastic as ours was.

We have been working A.  L.O.T. on reading around here.  
There may or may not have been some tears shed {by both of us}.
But nonetheless we have worked and worked and worked until that fateful day came. 
He read the WHOLE book by himself.
And then completed, turned in, and brought back a book report marked with a 100% and a Rock Star message from his teacher.
We were both all smiles... all day!

However, as we worked on that fateful day this was happening in the other room....

 Every bucket, drawer, and bin over turned so that Beck could find just the right legos for this little machine of his.
It was his first contraption built all on his own.
He definitely added to the smiles that day.

All while this little lady woke up from her nap with the most wicked, I just pulled my piggies out, bed head you have ever seen.
Definite smiles.

It is true.
We will be a family of 6 in August.  {oh my gosh!}
Seriously cannot even wrap my brain around it.

Jared is super excited {just bummed there will be no AFLAC kickbacks this time around.... thats what happens when babies surprise you like this}
Cade is thrilled with the idea and lovingly refers to the baby as IT.  {he is hoping the baby is born on his birthday... I am not}
Becks doesn't really get it. {he is just bugged he doesn't get to drink my "tummy drink"... flavored carbonated water has been heaven sent.}
Capri is clueless for what is about to rock her world.
And me... depends on the moment.  I am excited and thankful {just a tad bit overwhelmed with the thought of 4 {that is FOUR} kids!

This pregnancy has been very different from the others.  I have been considerably more nauseous and have had super {like I need it n.o.w.} cravings.  However, all in all I cannot complain.  

So, there you have it.  This is really happening, really.  
Wish me luck and pray for my sanity :)
