It's Been a Busy Month

Sorry for the lack of posts this month. I've had plenty of time, there is just so much to post about that I have been putting it off. But here goes.

Kate's 4th Birthday Party

Kate's birthday was a pretty exciting day here in Charlotte. We had a huge ice/snow storm which lead to all of the city roads being covered in a nice thick layer of ice.

As is tradition, we started the day with pancakes. The birthday girl/boy always get pancakes shaped in in the number of the birthday. Katelyn polished off two four-shaped pancakes.

After breakfast, Kate was dying to open her gifts.

We got her an art easel. She also opened her gift from Nana Freese, a new church bag! So fun.

Later in the day, a few friends and family braved the roads and made their way to our house for Kate's party. We made superhero capes for the boys and twirly skirts for the girls to decorate. Katelyn picked out a princess crown cake from Costco and we had Costco pizza for dinner. It was a great party, I think Kate felt loved and that was all that mattered.

Random Moments

Josh has gotten to the age where he and Kate can play together. They have their moments. He is such a silly little man, but he truly adores his sister. I think he's going to be a great big brother. Here are some random pictures of the kids over the last month.

"Valentine's Day"

Okay so these pictures really aren't from Valentine's Day. They are from the day before. We had another snowstorm, but this one left behind soft beautiful snow perfect for playing in! It was awesome. Before the kids went out to play in the snow we had Valentine's donuts. Yumm, yumm.

Josh doesn't really have any snow gear yet, so we bundled him up as best as we could and sent him and Kate out to play. They were fearless. Ben headed out with them to play with them and they built a HUGE snowman! It was the perfect snow day. By mid afternoon the roads were completely dry and Ben was able to head out for an awesome afternoon of paintball with some friends.Yes, I put Kate's tights on Josh. :)

Baby Boy Burgess

Well, I'm 37 weeks along today. Our C-Section is scheduled for Monday, March 15th at 7:30am. So unless he decides to make an early appearance, we only have two more weeks until we get to meet our new little man. Things are going great, there haven't been any complications so far and we are hoping for a quick and easy surgery. The question still remains... will he be blonde like Josh or have brown hair like Kate?? Stay tuned!
