The joke is on us!!!!

So, I've been trying to think of a really cute, clever, and funny way to say this...but I'm too tired :o).

In the words of Avery & Lerran's shirts... "Oops They did it again!".

They are both going to be big sisters, in a big way! I was really excited to tell the blog world that we are going to have a baby in June, however much to our huge surprise, I can now tell the blog world that we are going to have 2 babies in May!! That is right, we are expecting TWINS!! It was quite the shock of a lifetime, 2 weeks ago (at my 14 week appt.) when I proudly announced to the Doctor that we were ready for a third child, and she sheepishly looked at me and asked "How about a 4th". Unbelievable!!! We are excited, knowing that God is sovereign and somewhere in His funny plan, it is ordained that we should have 4 sweet children under 4 years old! In all seriousness, we are excited and humbled and completely dependent on the Lord for the strength to do this! We would covet your prayers as we walk down this very busy and fun road!!

I'm optimistic that now I am feeling better, I will be more faithful about blogging and updating our crazy lives! Thanks for living life with us, we are excited to share this journey!!

Em, We are so excited for y'all! I can't believe you're going to have twins.

Avery will hopefully be a great little helper.

Please let us know if you need anything other than prayer.

We love you!
