Awny and her kids came out to visit, it was so great to have them here for a couple of weeks. The kids played hard and made many great memories...we even survived the bigger kids nonstop obsession with making and shooting homemade arrows.
In August we went to see Pam and Mike (who recently moved to Idaho from Indiana) We were able to spend time with them and Travis' siblings as well.
Ayda also did soccer for the first time this year, this was her first "land" sport and she learned a lot. I am glad she was on a team of very well seasoned girls and had coaches that were so great at helping Ayda learn. She even made a goal before the season was over. Her team won (by a lot) every single game.
We can't forget Zander, he is doing speech classes to help with his articulation disorder. He is coming a long nicely and is able to talk to and be understood by people outside our family. He is also in gymnastics and LOVING it. He is 100 percent boy, he never stops jumping and blowing things up with his imaginary guns. He is my shadow, we are rarely apart and I like it that way.

In October we made a big announcement to our kids...our family is growing. We are expecting another baby boy in April. He is due the 21st, Ayda hopes for baby to come on her birthday (24th) and I am just hoping he doesn't hold out as long as Zander did. We are excited for him to come, I can't imagine how busy my day will be with two boys...but I am guessing it will involve lots of jumping and climbing and fighting (fake I hope).
Happy 2013!! (because I promise I will not post again before then!)
