3 years going on 20!

WOW! Can't quite believe I have a 3 year old! I know it isn't her birthday yet but it feels like it. We celebrated on Sunday because Shawn and I will be in ARGENTINA during her birthday. It was so nice to have family here. Thank you everyone for your company...and of course...your gifts. Raegan has definitely brought so much to our lives! She has always had so much personality. She is sooooo sensitive, and sooooo tender. She loves making people laugh. If she discovers something that makes me laugh really hard at her she will repeat it over and over and over again...until I don't laugh anymore. When I don't laugh, she asks me to laugh again, which in the end makes me really laugh again. She is hilarious. She's a little sausage ball too. She likes to test her strength by gently (meaning 'gently' in Rae's world) brushing by Evan until he falls over. I try not to laugh cause it's not very nice, but it is pretty funny. She is a sweet mommy to her all her babies, and some of that sweetness is finally transferring over to Evan. I will leave the room and ask her to watch Evan for me only so I can spy on her. She is so sweet the way she talks to him...'oh bud, you're ok, I'm right here...you're mommy will be right back in just one minute'. It's priceless. I really could go on and on and on...but I'll do that in my journal so I don't have to bore you all. Raegan is my little Dora princess....and I am feeling a little sick to my stomach right now and maybe a little teary eyed thinking that I am going to be away from her for 2 full weeks. WE LOVE YOU SOOOOO MUCH RAE! HAPPY BIRTHDAY STINKER BUMB!

A little update on our lives: Shawn is loving his new job. The team is preparing for Argentina and they are taking me along. Laci is watching our kids with a little help from Karalee...still trying to figure out how to say THANK YOU in a really big way! Our house has not been sold yet, but we are not in a huge hurry so we listed it a little high...see if we can get anyone to bite before we have to lower it. We are in my parent's basement apartment and are getting anxious for consistent warm weather...POOL TIME! It's fun to have family and friends so close by. I am enjoying every minute of my family AND Shawn's family. That's pretty much it in a nut shell. I'll post some pics of our trip to Argentina in a few weeks!

Raegan is such a cutie pie and her little "bud" too. We always feel so special when you include us. I'm thrilled Rae really knows who we are now and loves us even though we have a big, scary dog. Have a WONDERFUL time in the land of manana - you deserve it. We LOVE you mucho!

Hey guys...Rae is so cute! We need to have her come over and keep Brecklyn occupied. She is always talking about visiting Rae at grandma's. I hope you have an amazing time in Argentina. That sounds like so much fun. Happy Mother's Day (early) too Farrs! We'll miss you guys! Tell Shawn--no farting on the plane!
