Our family had a fun and eventful weekend. On Saturday our wee Baby T celebrated his first birthday. :) On Sunday we celebrated Easter and had a wonderful time. My morning began by getting some exciting news. :) I debated keeping it a secret for a time but finally decided to go ahead and shout it from the rooftops. During our family's Easter dinner I handed my teen son a plastic Easter egg. I told the children that they had missed one during our egg hunt and my son was going to open it now. Then I turned on the video recorder. With all sorts of suspense he opened the egg and found my silly drawing inside (my children's names hidden here for privacy) and read it aloud:
A cookie costs a dime,
A biscuit costs a nickel.
Come this December,
Our family is going to grow by one little pickle!
I have a habit of calling my children pickles all the time. It's probably my favorite word, so I just had to make a pickle poem! I am very early still and am praying for a nice, full term pregnancy. God willing, we will meet this new little one right at Christmastime!
On an (even more) personal note, I expect this to be our very last little pickle as I'll be taking permanent birth control measures after this. This makes me sigh deeply, but it is right for us.
Have I mentioned lately how in awe I am that I get to live this life? :)
