Not Much New...

No new pics of my two kids to post this week. Mike's studying for the PE in April, so that takes a lot of his time. I'm working on getting my kids more independent and efficient at more household chores, and that's going fairly well. Reading old posts of Amy's, I get how she feels about never getting comments on posts about her kids, and let's face it: that's all I post about. I won't put on pictures of Twilight movie stars for you, but I do think I've finally come up with something that might elicit comments out of at least a few. I'm 12 weeks pregnant with our third child, due on August 3rd. We're all super excited, especially the kids. I don't like telling people too early, because I always worry about something going wrong. But since it's on my mom's blog page now, I figured I'd better announce. Not to mention the fact that I'm already looking big, as Carson so kindly informed me the other day. Those of you who see me regularly will notice any day now anyway. Tomorrow is Carson's birthday, so I'll be posting those pics soon. In the meantime, here's a picture of the newest Gibbs kid (laying on it's stomach, head on right, butt on left):

Sledding Videos

Here are some videos of the kids sledding in Wyoming. Never mind my voice, since I was in the process of losing it at the time.
And here's a video of Mike and the kids at our house.

Winter Snow Fun

After we got back from our holiday travels, we got a bunch of snow, and Carson and Natalie talked us into building a snowman. It was mostly Mike, of course, but I did convince him to make it smaller this year. We got to use our new snowman kit from John and Melody:

Here's a picture of a big horn sheep we saw on our way back through Wyoming: We spent a few days after Christmas in Wyoming with my parents. Here are the kids and Mike sledding in my parents' yard. It was the perfect size hill for the little kids.
Here's Mike and Natalie:

We also had Mike's parents visit us last week so Mike and his dad could wire our basement. Of course I didn't get any pictures, just like I didn't get any of my parents over Christmas break. But we had a great time with everyone! we are now trying to get back into some sort of a routine, though we haven't had luck with that yet. Maybe this week...
