Tate's Promotion

Doesn't Tate look thrilled to be getting another sibling? Then again, maybe he's just still mad at me for whacking his bangs off... ;)

We shared this picture with friends and family about a month ago so this is kinda old news. I'm already 19 weeks and we found out the gender 3 weeks ago. AND.....

We are all sooooooo excited! We took Collin with us to the gender ultrasound and as we were leaving he announced to the whole waiting room that he was getting a sister. Before we knew the gender Collin would always tell us that it was a girl. He now insists that we call her "C". (I don't think it's gonna happen)
Our little girl arrives sometime around May 14th and we can't wait to have her join our little family!

Tate is 2!

 Is this cake my mother in law made awesome or what?
Not only that, but it was so delicious.

Can I believe my baby is two? Why yes, yes I can. Tate lives for cuddles and kisses, but he takes being two VERY seriously! He doesn't miss an opportunity to throw tantrums and gets into so much stuff! It's so bad that I can't let him out of my sight for more than 10 seconds even when we're at home! Add to that his incredible stubbornness and you have a little ball of high energy named Tate :) 
It's amazing how siblings can be so alike in some ways and then completely different in others. 
There is no way our family would be complete without him though. He's the perfect amount of spunk, curiosity, and yes, even the perfect amount of naughty, that our family needs.
Happy Birthday Tate!

Sugar Rush

 Happy Halloween!

Yeah, I know I'm two months behind on posting these, but I'm pregnant and am just now starting to feel better. Didn't know we were expecting #3? That's probably because I've been behind on posting those pictures too, but they're coming! Promise :)

 Collin was pretty excited about his Dusty costume from Planes. My mom had bought it last year along with the movie. She wanted him to have something to wear while he watched the movie. When I asked Collin what he wanted to be, he said "Dusty". I was totally down with that since it meant one less over priced costume I had to buy.

 I found Tate's costume on sale and snagged it, so this Halloween was pretty great in my opinion.
Doesn't he make the cutest turtle?
 And Michael went as Ron Swanson from Parks and Rec. Scary how much they look alike ;)
The boys scored a pretty good amount of candy this year. We might have let them eat a little too much though because they ended up staying up until past 11 and were SO HYPER! It was crazy. I hid the candy after they crashed, but I didn't hide it well enough apparently. Found this guy reunited with his bucket  the next morning.

Oakley Reunion 2014

I think I'll just let the pictures do the talking on this one ;)

The 7 Year Itch

We made it through the 7 year itch! 
I love my hunky husband. 

 And I'm so glad he's into doing crazy stuff with me. Like this...

Random Pictures From August

Most of these have already made it to Facebook, but since I have a few family members who don't use Facebook, I thought I'd go ahead and post them here too. 
When Tate's done with a cupcake vs. when Collin is done.

Teaching Papa how to play Wii
Our little Peacock :)

 I just love this last one. It's not even a great picture, but the moment is so precious to me. I love seeing their little heads so close together while they watch T.V. or play. I'm going to miss this when they're grown. 


We started Homeschool back in July! I know Preschool isn't mandatory, so it doesn't really count as "official" school, but Collin is loving it! He begs me to do school ALL THE TIME. Even on Sunday's. I am so glad he loves to learn and am having so much fun teaching him. I love having my boys at home with me!
