So, life has totally blown up around here.  I am 35 weeks and having contractions off and on everyday.  Spence had unexpected surgery last week.  The surgery has left him with restrictions of not lifting anything over 20 pounds for the next 4-6 weeks.  Oh and yeah we still have two wild and crazy boys.
In full disclosure, we are doing a lot of laying around and movie watching.  We are super thankful for family who took care of our boys for the week that Spence had surgery.  We are also beyond blessed by friends who have come over and brought food.  If anyone is bored and wants to wrestle or be chased by our boys, come on over because Mom and Dad are pretty much out of commission in those departments :)
I have decided to give myself a pass on being super mom.  This means that I am letting some cleaning slide (you won't catch a disease but the house is definitely not up to my normal standards), letting the boys make messes and eat junk that I typically wouldn't.  This also means that I am going to let myself have a break from feeling like I need to blog about our every breath.  The next post we put up will be be announcing when Ellie makes her arrival.  So, as soon as she makes her grand entrance (because my kids don't arrive with out high drama) we will post some pictures and let you know.  Don't give up on us, I am sure that there will be tons of blogging once pink overtakes this house :)

Even though I don't know you, I like reading about your boys and will miss your blog until the baby arrives. I'm just an old South Carolina "MamMam" who loves her grandchildren and enjoys great stories about children like the ones you tell. Looking forward to the pink days!!
