And the verdict is.....

It's a boy!!!  We finally had our sonogram today and found out.  I don't think we could have waited anymore.  The suspense was about to kill us.  Now it's time to get some boy stuff.  I almost won't know what to do with a boy after having 3 girls.  I'm sure we will figure it out though.  ha ha.  We have our name picked out since we thought Corina was a boy.  ha!  Wesley Carter.  That is our grandma's maiden names put together.

Here is a smilebox creation I made.  It's just of our weekend.  Smilebox is so wonderful I think. They have such cute layout.  It's really just digital scrapbooking.  Just download your pictures drag them over to the smilebox and then drag them into the layout you picked.  So EASY!

So a few weeks ago I posted on facebook that I had just read The Magicians Nephew by C.S. Lewis.  (the same guy who wrote Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe.)  When I was in Jr. High I read A Wrinkle in Time and I couldn't put it down.  I was SO into that book.  I felt the same way when I was reading this.  It's the very first book in the Narnia series.  I really love that series and this made everything come together.   Anyway I thought that after I was done that I should read it to Corina.  She really likes the movies.  So everynight we have been reading a chapter in The Magicians Nephew.  She can not miss a night of it.  I remember then I was younger my mom read to me Fried Green Tomatoes.  (If you haven't read that book you should.  It's so much better than the movie.)  It was a special time and now Corina and I are doing it.  She loves it.  We only have 2 more chapters to read so we'd better find another story to read soon.

Tea Party is the Theme

Last week I'm pretty sure that the girls had a tea party everyday.  We have had our little tea party set for a while.  It's just a little plastic Cinderella tea set that Corina got for Christmas one year.  Well Aurora has rediscovered it.  The first day Aurora and Corina played with the tea set and got it all set up and played with Aurora's fake food.  By the end of the week they were using water in the pitcher for tea and real food.  They had a really good time.  One time Mark went upstairs and found Aurora having a tea party in our room on the floor at the foot of the bed.  I guess she thought a smaller sister would not bother her there.  he he.  Finally at the end of the week I decided to take some pictures.  I think this was the last tea party. You can really only have so many tea parties I guess.

Here is the tea party group.

Here is Gwyneth.  She thinks she a big girl having a tea party too and sitting in the big chair at the counter.  

Other than tea parties I have been preparing for homeschool next year and trying to figure out what to buy.  Also, next week we go for out sonogram appointment to see what we are having.  My neighbor says she thinks it a boy.  Everyone she knows is having boys so maybe it will spread to me.  My friend said she thinks it a girl. She said we  have 3 girls might as well have one more.   We will see.  

Have a great week.
