Lots! And I mean lots! Has happened in the last couple of years! Some highlights include:
Luke will be in first grade next year, Cassie will be in kindergarten next year. Both kids are doing the dual language Spanish/English program. Luke really enjoyed kinder last year and Cassie enjoyed preschool at The Spanish Schoolhouse.
Paige is now two. Still not talking. We are working on getting her in speech therapy.
Ender and Flynn are great! Best dogs ever!
Michael quit his job of 9 yrs to go back to school. He's doing an MBA program at UTD, started August 2013 and will graduate December 2014! Right now this summer he's doing an internship.
Me, well, I had another baby! We welcomed Whitney into our family February 11, 2014 and she's just been the best little baby!
So, I'm gonna see if I can't do a little better, and write stuff down so I don't forget. Because I don't have the best memory!

We were scheduled to be induced at 5:30 that morning, but I had Michael take me a little early since I was already contracting and I wanted something for the pain soon. I was admitted, and everything was hooked up ready to go by 6am. And I was dilated to a 4. I asked for and got my epidural about 8 or 9, can't exactly remember. I had a little more dose a couple hours later. In the past the dr had usually come early to break my water but this time couldn't until 12:50- and at that time I was dilated to a 6. I was needing more epidural so about 1:45 asked for more, they needed to check me to see where I was. At 1:50 I was fully dilated, and ready to go- yay!- so I got one more dose, they called it a delivery dose. I probably only pushed about 10-12 times, less than 20 minutes, and there she was! I guess if I knew I was only gonna be pushing for not even 20 minutes, I could have skipped the last dose of epidural....nah, who am I kidding, I'm glad I had it! And I was freezing Michael out- notice the hoodie up!- but that's ok, as long as the temperature is comfy for me! So, in a nutshell.... there you have it! I just hope that in the future, my water doesn't break on its own, ever... I'm not sure we'd even make it to the hospital!

•Luke snuggling with Ender! And cute Cassie peeking out- even though she's in time out...
•Seeing how the kids play with their toys. As they were playing with the Little People Luke tells Cassie that the boys daddy has to work late. Cassie asks why, and Luke says that sometimes people work late and sometimes they don't. (the last couple of days Michael has worked late and missed bedtimes)
•And the randomness of where I find toys!

It was cold the other morning- rainy and dreary, so the kids wore hats. At one point while we were in the car, I looked back at Cassie and she had her hat backwards so you couldn't see as much of her face. She also had her sunglasses on, but I didn't get a picture of that.
On sunday I'll be 35 weeks pregnant- this is the part that seems to drag in and feels longer. Maybe I'll post a picture next week.... We'll see...

Oh, and click on the link I've added on the right- our good friends are trying to adopt again! The link goes to their adoption profile they have open! Spread the word- you never know of someone, who knows someone, who might know someone- looking for an adoptive couple!

So that's probably just the tip of the ice burg of the things that are going on with us, I hope to post more, even if it is only a picture, or a little something of the cute things the kids say and do. And, I might put up some random pictures, but I'll try my best to remember when they were taken, but if not that at least a brief explanation!
So! Let the blogging resume!

We got a pool everyone can be in- boy is it nice! It takes a long time to fill, and after about an hour the water isn't cold anymore, but Luke warm still feels better than the 95*+ temps we've been having. Luke really enjoyed it, Cassie was ok until she swallowed a bunch of water- then she preferred the tiny baby pool. They like going down the slide while wet and pretending to have picnics at the table. I think next time we fill the pool we will do it on the patio, since it extends to the fence, so it will be in the shade most of the day!
