OK! So here's a quick update on our lives. . . finally! Hans had knee surgery awhile ago. What you can see in this picture does not even begin to do justice to how bad it looked. All is well now.

We went to Summerfest awhile ago. It was way too cold for June, but the boys loved it.

Hans passed his Journeyman test with a little study help from James. He helped him prepare for the practical test and it all paid off.

James turned three last week! His cake was decorated with his favorite things on the planet. Tractors! We can thank Hans for the design of the construction scene.

He is never happier than when he has a sucker in his mouth. Thanks Haley and Zach.

He was even kind enough to share one with his brother. How mature of him.

We bought a van. Sorry, no picture, but it's sweet. All you SUV lovers out there can mock all you want, but I bet you can't open your doors with the touch of a button. Ok, so I might be a little bit of a minivan snob. I'm sure it'll wear off after the first road trip with two screaming kids, but right now, I'm in love!

One last minor update on our lives. We are expecting a third BABY!!! Are we crazy or what? Don't answer that, I already know what you're thinking. I'm trying to be positive. But seriously, we're really excited. Honestly, I'm starting to feel like having three kids might be easier than being pregnant. This time around, it's really taking a toll on me. This baby is due February 11th, the day after Noah's 2nd birthday. James thinks it's a baby sister. I have no clue. I've stopped guessing because I'm always wrong. Time will tell.
