As you all know... I had my ultrasound scheduled on Christmas Eve to see what #3 was. We decided to take the boys with us so they could experience the excitment as well. It didn't take Dr. Beck long to determine that indeed it's a GIRL!!! We are very excited! Glen Allen is nervous at the thought of a girl but at the same time his heart just melts and he already knows that she will have him wrapped around her little finger. The boys are happy to know that mom and dad finally believe them that it is a girl. When we walked out of the doctors office Glen said, "Mom, I already told you it was a girl." It was almost as if he was offended that I didn't believe him this whole time and that we had to get confirmation from the doctor. What a funny boy! Needless to say, it will be a change for the Jones house since all we know is blue, motorcycles, quads, balls, skateboards and fighting... but I am excited to have some more estrogen around here since I am so out numbered! Let the SHOPPING begin! :)

Okay, okay, okay... after several "friendly reminders" or as I like to call it "guilt trips" from my mother about what a slacker I am on updating my blog, how everyone is wondering if we are okay, and hint about how my sister just updated her blog... here it goes! Grab a warm cup of hot cocoa and get comfortable because this is going to be a long one!
Jaxon's 3rd Birthday!
Glen was just as excited as Jaxon was to see what each present was!
Check out the MOVES!

As some of you may know and some may not... after several months of trying and fertility meds.... we are proud to announce that #3 is on the way. We were not able to keep it quiet for long as my husband posted a comment on Facebook the day I got a + and Jaxon announced in nursery that his was going to be a big brother! Nothing is secret around here! :)
I am due the end of May which only makes me about 9 weeks along right now. We are exited for the new little one but for being so little... this baby sure keeps reminding me that I am pregnant. The lovely morning sickness (all day sickness) is well under way and I just want to sleep the next month away in hopes it will be over soon. :) Despite the yucky tummy... we are all very excited about our news!!

My baby is growing up!!! I can't believe I have a child old enough to be in preschool! Glen LOVES it and asks everyday if it is a preschool day.... unfortunately it's only twice a week for 2 hours a day. The first day of school they were supposed to bring something for show and tell and he was so excited to wear his motorcycle shirt.... what a funny kid! Jaxon had an absolute melt down when we took Glen and dropped him off because he wanted to stay and play with the new kids too. I tried to distract him by telling him we would go get a treat but the waterfall of tears continued so we had to go home and take a nap. The second day of school, he learned that if he didn't cry we would go get a treat! Little does he know... when we drop Glen off, it's mommy and Jaxon time!

A few weeks ago we had the chance to go out to the lake with Glen Allen's cousin Tyler, his wife Kristen and their family. We always talk about getting together and doing something and for some reason it never happens so I was way excited when a plan actually came together. We love Tyler and Kristen... they are so fun and make every activity, family party, get together, worth going! We of course headed out bright and early, before the sun was even up... which I HATE doing but it's the only way to get the good water and beat the unbearable heat that comes later on in the day. The boys were up and ready to go but in the 20 minute car ride this is what happened... Jaxon was out (with pop tart in hand)! The funny thing about this picture is that right after I took it (literally 5-10 seconds later) my husband turned up the music, Jaxon quickly popped his head up and yelled, "Now this is what I am talking about!" as he started jammin' out to the music. This kid is hilarious... he is my music lover and is always dancing every time he hears a song and is always telling my husband to turn up the music, even though it's already at a level beyond what I can handle.
It was so hot that the kids kept asking when it was swimming time... my boys love just pulling over the side and having a chance to jump in a cool off. Yeah for swimming time!
After all the wakeboarding and surfing, we pulled out the air chair because Kristen and Tyler had never tried it before. They both did great and Kristen was the champ of the day! The air chair is not easy to get up on but she made it look like a piece of cake! Way to go Kristen (I didn't get any pictures of her because I was so excited she got up!) Here is Glen riding it like a pro!

My hubby has been gone since Wednesday morning on a business trip to Orlando. I dread every time he leaves and I look forward to his return. It's amazing how different the feeling is in my home when he is gone. The stress levels are up, the responsibilities seem heavy, the Spirit he brings is missing and the love he demonstrates is gone! The boys have asked me numerous times where daddy is, when is he coming home, why did he leave, etc. The boys miss him and I miss him dearly! It's not the same when he is gone and I am so excited to pick him up in 4 1/2 hours and counting!

Okay, so I know I am a little slow.... I have known about this whole coupon thing forever but I never really got into it for whatever reason. Not that I really have time for it ight now, but my mother-in-laws neighbor taught us the in's and out's of this whole coupon thing and slowly but surely I think I am getting the hang of it. I will admit, it starts to become addicting to see how much you can save and it's hard to spend money on regular priced items. Tomorrow morning I will hit the Kmart double coupon savings for all my non-food items (without kids)! Yipee!!

As I mentioned previously, we just got back from Idaho about a week ago and I hadn't downloaded my pictures... until NOW! Yeah! All of my dad's family lives in Idaho and they have a Smart reunion (my grandma's side) every 2 years in the most beautiful place located about 2 1/2 hours north of Boise, called McCall. It's a beautiful (but cold) lake surrounded by pine trees and gigantic houses. We haven't had the chance to make it for several years (I have been married for almost 7 years and Glen Allen has never been to Idaho to visit my family - that's how long it's been). But fortunately, we were able to make this year and I am so glad we did. It was wonderful to see family, spend time with everyone and get out of the terrible AZ heat and up into beautiful Idaho. The first day there we stayed in Nampa (which is just outside of Boise) because the reunion didn't start until the next day. While in Nampa, we drove around to let the boys experience what real farms are like.
Went to a park and actually enjoyed the toys because they were not scorching hot like the ones in AZ in the summer!
