NO Excuses here!

So lots of things have happened to our family but I haven't mentioned any of it here. I am a slacker and I'm just not going to give excuses as to why, mainly just laziness :). We are expecting a baby in July. We are so pleased and excited. We have been told the baby is a girl but we shall see. I am always skeptical but pretty sure they are correct :). I am just going to post a bunch of pictures of what's been going on around here and write a brief blurb about each picture. The kids are all growing up so fast.

Victoria and Aiden like to wear mammas shoes :) I'm hoping Aiden will move past this stage. Im worried he will hurt himself because he goes for the highest heals possible.
Aiden trying to say cheese. Look at all his teeth.
Aiden so happy after finding all his eggs.
Victoria is always such a great help with Aiden. She wanted to make sure he would find all of his eggs.
This is a common expression on Victoria's face :) She is telling me something very important.
Tuimana emptying all his eggs. Yummy!
This is a common expression on Aiden's face hahaha Cheeky boy!
This is a common expression on Tuimana's face. I love his natural smile.
So sweet. It's great when the kids get along.
Aiden found an egg. So excited to to find the eggs.
Aiden trying to figure out where those eggs are.
Tuimana finding something other than an egg. Hmmmmm....
Victoria so excited for the hunt.
I love that Tuimana put on flip flops to go Easter egg hunting.
The nicest picture I got of the kids together. And look mamma and dad are on the wall in the background too hahaha.
Right before the hunt.
This is what Victoria gets up to when she has the camera. Toothless smiles all around.
This is what I get to see outside my window.
Aiden is always trying to hitch a ride.
Victoria had a girls slumber party at aunty's house. They painted their toe nails and.......
their finger nails.... Victoria had so much fun.
Aiden when he smiles. That dummy is always attached to this boy.
oops a duplicate.

This picture is cool. It looks like Willie is a ghost in the background.

Victoria half way done with straightening her hair. She loves her hair and loves coming up with different ways to do her hair. It didn't take too long and it was a lot of fun.
The finished product. Here in NC it is very humid so it is really hard to keep her hair really straight, so this is as close as its going to get :) I love her toothless smile hahaha.
Tuimana and Victoria with crazy hair hahahaha. They are still cute.
Victoria is always trying to play "mamma" and Aiden won't have anything to do with it hahaha.
Victoria got an award at school for perfect attendance. That was quite a surprise for her dad and I. We though she had missed a few days of school just because Tuimana was sick and missed some school. So well done Victoria :) Couldn't get her to smile though.

Tuimana will be 11 in just two months which is crazy. I can't believe so much time has passed.

Our new floors.

Since we have moved into our house we have wanted hardwood laminate downstairs. We had someone come out to do an estimate and the price was astronomical. We could have bought a new vehicle with that kind of money. So we waited. Then we decided to go to Lowe's and check them out. Pricing for materials wasn't too bad so we opted to go with having them install as well. I wanted to try and be awesome and do the floors ourselves but that probably would have taken us a very long time and it just didn't work out for us to do that.
So yesterday after waiting about 2 weeks for all our supplies to come in, the installers came to the house about 10 minutes to 10 and started working. So this is the before.....

ok just kidding. i will have to do it later. my computer doesnt feel like puting my pictures up argggghhhhh...... (me with annoyed voice)

Much Slackery

I'm not very good at consistently blogging so I've decided I will accept that and move forward. We have been pretty busy since November 1, since that is when Aiden came into the world. I was induced and it was a little bit weird because we knew what day he would be here. We hadn't experienced that before. I was thinking, as I watched the drug pitocin dripping into my IV, what if this stuff doesn't work. What if he still won't come. I wonder if that has ever happened. But he did come and it was only about 10 hours of labor which is shortest labor. All went really well. The midwife I had is in my ward and she was just fantastic. It was lovely to have her visit with us and having some great conversations about all sorts of things. There was a Star Trek: Enterprise marathon going on that day so I was watching that while I was in labor. It was so great!! I love Star Trek. I think I am the SYFY weirdo in the family hahahaha. It's to the point where my kids know the characters of all sorts of SYFY shows hahahaha.

Anyway Aiden Elijah Wiley arrrived at 6:25pm on the 1st of Nov. Willie went home about 9pm to go pickup the kids at a family's house whose in our ward. Our ward has been so fantastic. We got meals and everything, which was a first for us too. They have also been so willing to help with kids or whatever. It's great to know that help is there if needed. We didn't need much help but it was helpful to know it was there.

So here is Aiden in the first few moments in this world.

Here are some more...

So this is all Aiden is allowing me to do right now. Hopefully I can get more done later.
