Spring is in the air


Well, spring is definitely in the air. We have had some beautiful weather which has allowed us to spend some time outside each day.  The kiddos love being able to go out and run off some energy...and let's be honest, so do Mom and Dad! :) 

We are a little over 5 weeks away from meeting Tobias, so we are trying to spend as much time with the kiddos as we possibly can...as a family and individually. 

The other night, Josiah and I went to "Date Knight" at our local Chick-fil-a.  He dressed up in his knight costume, and we went to dinner together.  Chick-fil-a did an awesome job changing their eating area into a castle setting for us.  Some of the servers dressed up as knights and maidens.  The amazing part???  We didn't have to pay anything extra to go have dinner together...just had to pay for our food.  I highly recommend going to one of these events if they have them at your local Chick-fil-a.  It was definitely a special time with Josiah before Tobias gets here. 

I will be taking Sophie to get her nails done just before Tobias gets here...Mommy wants to have some nice toes before going into the hospital.  She remembers me painting her nails last summer and has been asking when we will paint them again.  I painted them the other day and it was such a big thing for her...she had to tell everyone about it! :)  This will be her first time going to a salon and getting them done, so I think it will be even more special.  A few of our friends are going to go spend the afternoon with us, so it will be super special. 

I am still trying to figure out what I will do with Kyrie.  She is in that in between stage where she doesn't really have a favorite thing, but I am sure we will figure something out. 

Chris and I will be having a date night at the end of the month, so that will be nice to  spend some time with just him...and not doing things to get ready for Tobias to get here.  :) 

We may try to go strawberry picking some time this month.  We have done this the last couple of years, and the kiddos have really enjoyed it. 

Well, that is all for now.  We will keep you posted on what is going on and when Tobias arrives
