papa came to visit.

My dad came out to visit last week.  
It was sure nice to have him here.
We were unable to do to much, it rained, Nellie had preschool (we tried the park but all about blew over, the wind was crazy). We did however manage to make it to Cox Farms. 

There were probably well over 1,000 people there.
But they were there for about 5 hours..
Charlotte and I left after about 2 to go home for a nap.

I think these pictures say it all.

Charlotte is an animal person.. 

The cat was never close enough.

The other day my friend asked if I could come over and get some pictures of her little baby smiling,

Mr. Noah is sure adorable..

Today nellie had her first day of preschool.
She was so excited. 
Last night she helped make her lunch and she couldn't wait to use her new lunch box.

She tried to convince me she needed to wear her sandals that she always insists on wearing mismatched.

But in convinced her other wise by telling her they would send her home.

When I dropped her off as soon as I helped her find her star and her teacher she couldn't be bothered with saying good bye. 

I guess we will see how she does when I go and pick her up in an hour.

I have finally started to feel better so we ventured out to the great wilderness to take Nellie's pictures.
I had visions, which did not come to pass.
I had beautiful colorful trees, which were all still green.
I had imagined an obedient child that would be easily persuaded by ice cream.
A child that insisted on wearing her Hello Kitty boots.
One that refused to get dressed so she stayed in the car in her diaper.
My camera that says it is focusing on something but usually ends up not really do that.
After multiple lens cleanings, massive attempts to bribe, we finally found good light, with a motorcycle gang to keep her still and her arms down.  

Oh Nellie, you are beautiful. I am so lucky you are mine!

Great Country Farms

W few weeks ago we headed out to Great Country Farms. 
This time with some friends.

We were getting ready to leave  and as I walked to the car to put the kids in I tried to open the door.
And what do you know, I locked my keys in my car.
(which btw isn't supposed to happen... it is one of the "features" of our car.)

Then I was in the "do I have john come unlock my doors, or take my chances with AAA..."
I took my chances and waited an hour for them to come.
 So by the time we were supposed to be there we were just leaving.

But we made it, and fun was had by all.

we have not done anything nearly as exciting this past week..  I have been way to sleepy, have had crazy insomnia, and feel pretty blah..

Now I am going to go take a nap..

Today we are sharing the news that Baby Sallay number three will be joining our family in the spring.
We are thrilled.

I have felt better this time around than the others,
but still not great.

But I am super happy to be growing a little baby.

Today we went to my Dr. appointment and I brought the girls with me.
The Dr. couldn't find the heart beat so he pulled out the ultrasound and there was out little baby with it's heart beating away.
Nellie was so excited!
After the appointment she ran and saw that daddy was there and said 
"daddy, I saw the baby! It's in mommy's tummy!"

It was pretty adorable.
