Well, this past week, we survived Snowmaggedon 2013---Kansas City got about a foot of snow -- luckily Patrick and I can both work at home--and we took turns between working and playing with Will. We all had a fun day, but realized how much we enjoy/need to get out of the house--we got a little cabin fever, and luckily Minsky's was open and we walked down for dinner. It was great!! Now---just 4 days later, we are expecting to get another foot of snow tomorrow---so, we'll see---it may be another day at home.
Other exciting news---so many babies!! The baby season started with baby Reece Denton that entered the world on Valentine's Day! We got to visit him this past weekend in St. Joe - and he is the sweetest!! So beautiful and so thrilled for Katie and Cody--they will be such wonderful parents and I know they have been praying for this baby for awhile! Love you guys! Next, Ryker Bergstrand made his appearance on 2/21/2013 - and are equally thrilled for Nicole and Mitch, and their prayers being answered as this tiny, perfect miracle is finally here!! We are sending our love to Des Moines and hope we get to see him soon (keep posting pics please!!) And lastly, just found out this evening, that my best friend since 5th grade, Lindsay and Chad Kobus welcomed another baby girl into their family, Miss Gabrielle!! She is going to be best buds with her older sister Sadie, and I could not be happier for them---Lindsay makes being a mom, wife, sister, friend, etc. look so easy and I know she will be an awesome Mom of 2 (and I will be expecting notes/tips soon!) So, lots of baby love--- next, we have heard our friends, the Wessingers will be expecting their baby boy sometime this week for sure!! And then, last but not least, I am just so anxious to meet my niece, Tutu, and I'm on pins and needles waiting to hear from my sister that she is going into labor :) :) (I'm also so nervous that she is going to come while I am in New Orleans next week for work-- I will be gone for 4 days, already going to be hard not seeing my boys for that long, but would be worse if I'm going to have to be away from my new niece) Anyway, so many blessings and I am going to love seeing these precious bundles grow into little people!
Will had a great weekend and couple days--- we went to visit Grandpa D in Atchison on Saturday - and Will loved playing with Grandpa's tractors! Then, we went through St. Joe to visit Baby Reece which was so fun as well! Today, we had breakfast at Succatash (which was really, really good!) with our friends Nick and Erica VanDee, and then just getting things ready for the week and relaxing. We had a fun weekend seeing family and friends, and hope you all had good weekends also.
Stay safe and warm with the upcoming storm!
