JUST A FEW QUICK THINGS......before I head out the door to homeschool co-op for the day. There are several things I have wanted to write about in the last few days but they will have to wait a little longer.

I was the featured mama on Andrea's Mama Mondays. She is so lovely and has become a great blogging/facebooking friend. I hope that we will someday be real life friends. I was very excited to be her featured mama yesterday. If you have the time and inclination, you can check out my interview here.

Also, we found out last week that baby #4 is a BOY. I don't know why but I was VERY surprised. It took several days for it to sink in. Now that it has, I am very excited to welcome another sweet boy to the family. As I have said before, I always envisioned myself with a houseful of boys.
So, now I know which direction to go with the nursery. I admit, I am less motivated to decorate it for a boy. Poor baby. Y'all stay on me about that, OK?

I have several pictures to post, as well as "My Space"...hopefully tomorrow (though you can see a little glimpse of it in the picture above). Have a lovely Tuesday!

  1. Oh, congratulations (though I already knew about the boy thing)! Boy are girl, kids are just a blessing, aren't they? Even, though, yes, that's a lot of testosterone! :-) I love the nursery room and your comments on decorating. It will be fun to see what you do (it looks good to me already!). :-)

  2. I meant boy *or* girl (not "are"), of course. Have a lovely day, Laurel.

  4. Laurel--it was so very fun to feature you--I especially loved how some of your loved ones left endearing comments about you...touching. =) I love being your blogging/facebooking friend, but I do look forward to meeting you IRL (In Real Life) someday soon!

    I remember an older lady talking to me in Goodwill and finding out I had four boys. She told me what a special blessing it was from God to have so many sons. So it will be for you, too. (I'm still glad that one of my five is a girl, though). The thought of all those future daughter-in-laws makes me nervous :) Congratulations to you and Matt!

    Love,

  11. Congratulations! It's a good thing you are a good cook and enjoy cooking so much - I'm thinking these boys might eat you out of house and home one day!

  14. We are expecting number 4. We have three boys and this pregnancy is so different. But, I honestly won't be surprised if it's a boy. What are the odds of a girl
