Yes! If you haven't heard the news yet we are expecting another little Horsman in May! We are very excited and grateful for God's gift of children. :-)

I can't believe Emma will only be 2 for a few more weeks! She is such a grown up little girl and is definitely a first born :-) She loves to help me in the kitchen (like when she completely emptied and stacked the DIRTY dishes from the dishwasher while I was out of the room a few days ago!) and is really enjoying her little brother now that he is old enough to play. We are still learning to share and not be bossy but it is a delight to watch the two of them laughing and running together.
Reagan is a whopping 15 months! I can't believe how quickly the time has gone. He has definitely gone from a baby to a toddler now. I just love watching him "run" after Emma and push her in her babydoll stroller. He is our cuddler and almost always has a smile on his face. Most of his pictures are in the highchair and that is because he is ALWAYS eating! He is a little peanut but he can sure pack the food away!
I have really let my blog go. I never thought Facebook would take the place of this blog. I don't post very much on Facebook but it is so easy to put a picture up there that I tend to forget about putting them here. One thing that I do really appreciate about the blog, different from Facebook, is that it's a quiet place to share what God is doing in our family. And He is doing. Sometimes I battle the lies from Satan that I need to have a big long list of important things I am doing each week. When I see friends on Sunday we are always asking each other how the week was or what we have been busy with lately. It feels as though my answer is usually the same! I don't go out a whole lot during the week (by choice :-) and yet I stay plenty busy! I am learning (and yes it is a day by day lesson) that the most important thing I can do with my life right now is to grow in my walk with my Savior and follow His priorities. Those priorities are my husband and children. That doesn't mean I can't be involved in anything else or have other friendships, it just means that my focus is different. This means that even if my day consists only of laundry, cooking, and training, if that is what HE has for me that is enough. I am so blessed to be a mommy and am continually reminded of how gracious, patient, and faithful our heavenly Father is!
