Babies, Cookies, Black Eyes, and Snow Drifts

I have given Sasha plenty of time to get on the internet and write up a quick blog about her ultrasound this week, but her time is up. I'm outing the sex of her baby. She is having a girl! Or, as Jared put it, the Merrell curse continues. If you think about it, it has been 27 years since the one and only boy was born into this family. The only way that we get boys to join is through marriage. Even Jason was able to have a boy, until he married Sasha. And now they are having a girl. This should be good news for them though because I have lots and lots of little girls stuff and no more babies to use it on. I am a little bit scared to hand over my stuff to them because I just know that if I give it all away I will end up pregnant again. You think I'm joking, but I seriously think this will increase my chances of having another baby.



Since Valentines was this week I let the girls decorate some sugar cookies. I gave Sadie one cookie and a container with candy sprinkles and about 5 seconds later she was done. Here is her cookie...



After this cookie she was all decorated out and Kylie got to do all of the rest. These are the ones left after her daddy ate a plate of special ones that she decorated just for him. She was so proud of herself. She even took the picture of the cookies all by herself.
I've been a parent for 5 1/5 years and three babies, and we finally got our first black eye. Sadie woke up Thursday morning with a nice shiner. This picture was taken 5 days later, as it is starting to fade. It took some coaxing, but the girls finally admitted that they were up playing after Jared and I were asleep and Sadie lost her grip on Kylie nightgown that she was pulling on and fell and hit her head on her dresser. You can see it in her picture with her cookie too.
The snow storms this year have been never ending. I am grateful for the moisture, but I'm sick of being a prisoner in my own home. This is the "view" from our front door Valentine's morning. Our porch was completely covered. Normally you have to step up to step into our house. Notice the nice new blinds covering the window to the right? :)



I am really looking forward to spring, or at least our trip this weekend!

Im glad im not the only one that has to pry information and days later it all fits into place what happened when and how...the only difference is it happens with Both of my boys...not just the one you would expect it from...

I didn't need an ultrasound to know; the minute they announced they were expecting, I knew it was a girl. As for the black eyes... Like mother, like daughter! Only you were a little bit younger than Sadie and you got yours while crawling around in the car before the days of car seats and seat belt laws...doesn't that make you feel old?
