I had the opportunity to go to one of the tea parties about a week ago. For anyone who is not familiar with what a Tea Party is don't worry because I didn't either. I personally try not to get to involved with politics, because I just get really mad and frustrated. When the elections were going on I was really interested I even would listen to talk radio a lot. Well after Obama was voted in by a rigged election I just decided that the end is near of this wonderful Country. Since the elections I have decided that I wont waste my time on getting mad at what is going on in the world anymore, because I knew that this kind of stuff was going to happen in the last days. I would rather spend my time with my family and try my best to raise my kids to follow Christ. So I hadn't heard of the Tea Parties that would be happening to protest against taxes. My husbands family (a certain few) are really into politics and informed us of the protest. Jeremy and I happened to be in the valley of the day of the Tea Party so I kinda got suckered into going. There were a lot more people at the one we went to then I would have thought. So other then the very windy day and all the kids crying because, it's cold and I want to go or just because they wanted to sit down, I was glad I went. We all made posters to hold although I didn't get one of the ones I wanted ( OBAMA YOU SUCK or OBAMA, OBAMA WHO'S YOUR MOMMA) the other ones worked out just fine. I don't think Jeremy's family would have wanted to be seen with me if I had a poster I really wanted, so it wasn't aloud. I think I heard that there was going to be about 2,000 locations around the U.S. holding Tea Parties. So I hope the Politicians got the word on the street of NO MORE TAXES (and could we lower the ones we already have please.) I only know of one person personally who said "I like taxes why would you want to protest them," and I think this person doesn't really understand what taxes are. I mean come on who wants to give the government part of their paycheck when I didn't see OBAMA at my job working that week. I am sick of the government taking away my kids future. I don't like giving the government a interest free loan every single year ( I want to know where I can sign up for one of those loans,) so seriously stay away from MY MONEY. Anyways I did get some cute pictures of my kids holding some signs, and I hope I didn't affend any OBAMA LOVERS out there (if there are any.)

I have been a little behind on posting my Easter pictures, but I have been really busy. This Easter was great as always the only disappointing thing was Jeremy had to work for the second year in a row. The kids and I still enjoyed hiding eggs and finding them and looking in everybody's baskets a few hundred times. Analyce really enjoyed dumping all the baskets out and mixing everything up. She was very thoughtfully and noticed that Mommy and Daddy didn't have as much stuff as she did, so she kept adding stuff to our baskets. She kept saying "I want to share my treats with Daddy," by the time Daddy got home from work he had more stuff in his basket the anybody. The rest of the night was spent on family time. We had a delicious dinner and watched The Lamb of God, which is a wonderful movie that everyone should see. We did miss seeing our families this Easter season, but maybe next year we will.

I want to use my blog as a pregnancy journal where I will be writing to my growing baby. This is a way I can keep everyone updated on my pregnancy and be writing little notes to my little munchkin.
We had our first appointment with the midwife on Wednesday April 8th. She is wonderful and I am sure you will get to know her very well in the weeks to come. I was a little nervous to meet with her, because I haven't really had any pregnancy symptoms except not having a period for 3 months. So I was just a little nervous hoping she wasn't going to tell me that I wasn't pregnant and I was just getting a little fat. So I was a little anxious to hear your heartbeat, and to my surprise your little heart was beating. It was beating at about 165 BPM, which seems really fast, but you sounded perfect. We then talked about different things and how I should expect my labor to be this time around. Over all it was a great visit and now there is no more denying you are there. Later that night while I was laying in bed fast asleep I was woken up by some small movement in my tummy. I thought I had already felt you there but wasn't sure, this time I was positive it was my little bundle of joy. I always love to feel your movements and when you kick. So far you haven't been causing any problems for mommy just being a perfect little angel. I haven't experienced any morning sickness and have kept the weight gaining to a minimum of 0 lbs added. I also think since I just had your big brother and still have all the extra weight from him I shouldn't be adding to much weight this time around. Mommy loves you and we can't wait to meet you and kiss your sweet face.
P.S. Mommy really thinks you are another precious baby boy, but we will have to wait and see, until then XOXO!
Daddy, Mommy, Analyce and Jaren

I love the fact that my two cute kids are best friends. Analyce loves her brother and is always wanting to play with him. She gets so excited when he wakes up from his naps so that she can play, and Jaren just thinks she is hilarious. Analyce thinks she is to big and tries to carry her little brother where ever she is going. I have caught her carrying him to the bathroom so he can sit and watch her while she does her thing. She also has taken him under the table, under her bed and in her closet. It doesn't matter how many times I tell her not to carry him she still does it whenever I am not looking. They have the best time when they are hiding under things or in the closet. Analyce tries to tell Jaren to be quiet and he just can't stop laughing the whole time. The first picture is when Analyce carried Jaren to her room and locked the door. When I finally got her to open the door this was the mess I found, and this happened about five minutes after I had just cleaned her room. The next two pictures are the two little munchkins hidding in the closet. When I went to look for them it was super cute, because Jaren was just cracking up. When I opened the closet door he tried to close it on me, and thought he was pretty big by doing so. I have caught them hiding under the table several times. Jaren has gotten hurt a few times by bunking his head on chairs, and beds. The last one was just to cute of Jaren, who fell asleep on his big sisters lap. It was so cute and Analyce was very proud of herself, she couldn't wait to tell daddy.
