I feel like I should post because apparently even Spencer is better at it than me. So I'm sure most of you are wondering, why there has been no talk of this baby that's on the way? Well... without sounding like a horrible person I couldn't post before. But just so everyone knows, I'm due to have a little BOY April 21st. (And yes Michelle I added a ticker.) I was totally sure it was another girl and I was thrilled about being pregnant and planning all my princess adventures with them. So when I found out it was a boy I was more then shocked. (I was mad, confused, annoyed... you get the picture.) I was this way for about a month, but now I'm changed. I'm super excited to have a new kind of adventure that will likely include, trucks, bugs, sports, and who knows what else. (Not to mention the fun I have picking out little boy clothes for him to wear. It least I have an actual need to go shopping!) My favorite thing to say is: I guess I'll be trading in some GLITTER for some DIRT!

Spencer is writing this.

I try not to post on here very often, but I had to tell this story about Aliah, and Kelsey is napping so she didn't see it first hand. We just came inside from playing in the snow.

I know cute right! How I ended up with the two cutest girls in the world I'll never know. (Although Erica (Dunaway) gives them a run for their money and it's hard for us to admit.) As we were playing in the snow three horses came by. Aliah dropped everything and ran to the sidewalk to watch them go by. She stood as still as the snowman who had only just had his eyes put on. She didn't move a muscle until they were well out of site. I stood back on the porch and watched her slowly sink down to sit in the snow. She sat there for a minute without looking back.

"What's the matter Aliah?" I called. She slowly turned her head over her shoulder without looking up from the cold snow and through a choked voice said, "Dad . . . I wish I had a horse." Then she burst into tears. I ran over to the sidewalk and sat down beside her in the snow to try and console her.

Those are the moments where you would give up all your dreams just to make that sweet little wish come true. Luckily for her, Daddy wants horses too!
