Last year, our family experienced an 'unexpected' pregnancy. All our, then current, kids were happy in their bedrooms, livin' life and enjoying their birth order, when BAM! what we refered to as an ulcer, actually turned out to be a new baby boy.

I never thought I could do a project like this alone, but I did. Yay me!

The weekend started off rocky, as my step son's grade card showed up in the mail. WTF?! Way to ruin a child's Spring Break! The thought process of his school never ceases to amaze me, but THAT is a whole other post. Anywho, he went to his mother's 'house' for the week, so I just have my three little
