and guess what? we’ll be adding a new little peanut to the mix this summer (july/august)!!!!

i’m only 8 weeks along, which is a little early to spill the beans but a 5th pregnancy has come with no will power to keep morning sickness and exhaustion a secret, particularly through christmas and new years.

don’t let these sweet pictures fool you. it was pure chaos getting everyone out of the house fully dressed and somewhat on time.

and their might have been a fiasco involving dog poop and the blanket we were sitting on, but that was easily forgotten once we broke out the wet wipes, hot cocoa and snacks …

not to mention our mad marshmallow tossing skills.

and these 4. i can hardly get enough of them all together. particularly on a morning like this one when they were too preoccupied with christmasy activities to bicker with each other.

so i’ll eat it up while the festivities last – and hope you have lots of chances to do the same over break!
