Technical Difficulties!

Ok, so I'm a bad blogger, but I have a good excuse. Our computer was in the shop once again (fyi, if you ever buy a mac, be sure to buy the protection plan). Also, our camera is still having issues. It still takes great pictures, but I can't load our pictures onto the computer for some reason. I've been putting off posting because who wants a post with no pictures? Well, it's been long enough and it's time for an update with or without pictures.

My boys are both getting big and gearing up for the summer. James has an obsession with the great outdoors and throws a major tantrum every time he is forced to come inside. He just figured out the childproof door handle in nursery and spends most of the time letting the other kids out. Can you tell that he is Hans' kid? He also loves his little brother to pieces, sometimes a little too much.

According to the pediatrician, Noah is tall and skinny. He just started smiling about a week ago and can't get enough of it. We're counting our blessings that we've made it into the spring without him getting sick. We were quite paranoid. We blessed him on March 29 and it was an incredible day. We were surrounded by lots of friends and family and the experience was just amazing.

Hans is as busy as ever. He's doing a lot of little projects on the house because it is officially on the market. We're hopeful that we'll be able to sell in the next month or two so we can move into a house that fits us a little better.

I spend my days chasing James around, cleaning up his messes and feeding Noah. I recently picked up couponing (I don't think that's really a word). You can make fun of me if you want, but it's actually kind of a rush to spend 50 cents on 6 boxes of cereal or getting free cough drops. Not to mention all the money we're saving. It actually keeps me pretty darn busy.

So there you have it, a complete update on our lives. Boring, I know. But we're loving it and we couldn't be happier. Oh yeah, and it's snowing outside. A lot! Bummer!
