A long time coming..

I've been terrible about updating this blog, so here's a quick update. Michael is back at home which I'm so grateful for. He's had a lot on his plate with work, so I'm hoping that things will slow down a little for him. The kids have been doing great! They are very excited to welcome little Carter into our family. Our best friends had their baby this week, and it was the first time that Jovie has ever seen a tiny baby. She mentions Carter all of the time, and I can't wait to see her grow into a wonderful big sister. Hopefully the transition will be smooth.
This weekend is a big event for both of the kids. We did a little shopping a couple of weeks ago, and got both of them new beds. Mikey's bed has been literally falling apart, and Jovie was still in a Toddler bed. The beds are being delivered on Saturday, and we'll be moving Mikey into his new room downstairs. He's very excited because it's going to be decked out in Dinosaurs while Jovie is going with a Princess theme (shocking, I know). We're hoping that they get used to their new furniture quickly. I'm going to post some pics as soon as they're all settled.

Michael surprised me with a new Canon SLR right before Christmas (aint' he a sweetie!). I've been practicing with it, and feel like I'm actually starting to get the hang of it. Here are a couple of pics that I took.

This is classic Jovie. She's been sucking on those two middle fingers since she was two weeks old. I'm so grateful that I actually caught a picture of it.
