Alex and Joseph had their first choir concert last night. Brent and Emma went, I stayed home with the rest of the kids. Brent said they did very well. After each grade did their own songs they did one song at the end all together.
Both boys are really enjoying the choir and both plan on continuing to be in it as long as they are in school.
And... since we are still homeless and living out of boxes, I could not find our video camera. So, we had to use Grandmas digital camera to take some lesser quality video. Brent was able to get one song of each grade alone, then the one they did together at the end. Just so you know, if you hear any kids singing out of tune... it could not possibly be either of mine. :)
Here is Joseph's class.... He is the handsome on the left with the red and gray striped shirt.
Alex's class.... He's the handsome one in the middle with the dark shirt with the light stripe across it.
And the combined choirs.

Kids were just a wee bit excited this morning, naturally. The snow is perfect for snowballs or for making a snowman. Of course they chose to engage in a little snowball fight before heading off to school.
This is actually the second snowfall. First one, it all melted as it hit the ground.

Here it comes....
The tie breaker.....
It was nice of the ultrasound tech to capture the baby as it is looking like an alien.
Yes, it's true, we are having another child. We are happy and the kids are all happy and excited. We already know how some family members will react to our GOOD news. So, you don't even need to say anything to us unless it's positive. We (Brent and I) were going to just keep the news to ourselves, because we are so tired of the things that we have to hear about how many kids we have. But, we decided I would put it up on here, because it's just too exciting to keep to ourselves. Plus, I know that there are people that read the blog that will be happy for us.
I do have to admit that I did have a selfish moment just after we found out. I took that selfish concern to God at Mass one Sunday and said "WHY??" and I didn't hear any voices or anything but instantly into my head came the answer... "because there are so many that are refusing My precious gifts". Very quickly after that I snapped out of my selfish state.
Anyway.... I had an ultrasound today that put the baby at 14.5 weeks. I did have some bleeding around 8 weeks, but the doc says everything is looking good now. I have also been feeling sick a lot, only throwing up a little though. (my kids might tell a different story, but, a little, a lot, it's all relative) The doc put the due date at May 2nd. But since the last 2 were c-section the doc says this one will be too, so she likes to schedule it about a week before the due date. So that would probably mean we'll have it in April. (and no we did not plan for another one in April, we already know there's like 28 birthdays that month already LOL)
AND... we are on the ball this time and have a name picked out already. I know, I know, shocking! We have decided on the name Sequoia.
