We are so excited!! We told our families on Sunday! It was my Dads Birthday so we thought it would be a great time to tell everyone. We gave my Dad an Easter egg with his birthday present with a note inside that said..."Happy Birthday Grandpa, I'll see you in December!" Everyone couldn't quite figure it out till my mom shouted, "you're having a baby aren't you?" The boys were surprised and all Carter has been saying is, "we're having a sister, no more brothers!" Okay Mom! We also gave Mikes parents Easter eggs that had a note in them that said Happy Easter Grandpa and Grandma see you in December. It was fun to see everyones reaction. We are so excited and we will defenitley love what ever our Heavenly Father sends us.

P.S- Happy Anniversary today Mom and Dad they have been married for 37 years. I Love the both of you so much. And Happy Birthday to my nephew Tanner love you bud.

The boys have been out for Spring Break since last Friday and I can truly say that I have enjoyed having them home they have had their moments of fighting and not getting along but for the most part it has been good. We have not done much with the weather being so gross we have just hung out watched movies and just enjoyed relaxing(forget the spring cleaning right!) they tried to have a few minutes of being outside but it was just to darn cold. We are headed to the new movie Monsters vs. Aliens

this afternoon it should fun. I just want my three little guys to know how much I love them and I have definitely enjoyed them this week.

A whole lot of GREEN!!!!

Green , Green and more Green is what was found at our house today. The boys woke up this morning to shamrocks scattered in the kitchen and those sneaky little Leprechauns even left a few gold coins behind (lucky boys). It was a great morning the boys enjoyed the breakfast I made green pancakes and green milk. Then it was off to school with there green shirts.. Love you boys so much.

Sunday we had an early St. Patrick's Day green dinner with my family it was a lot of fun and is something we all look forward to each year. We had hamburgers with GREEN buns, GREEN salad with GREEN dressing,GREEN potato salad,chips and GREEN cupcakes with ice cream. Holy cow we will all probably be peeing green for the next week with all the GREEN food coloring we have ate. But it was all worth it I am so glad that my family and children enjoy these silly holidays traditions and that we are able to be together. I guess if you can find a reason to have a party why not RIGHT..

My Little Champ!

Well as many of you know our sweet Braxton seems to move from sport to another as the year goes. He just finished up with Basketball and wasted no time breaking out the wrestling gear. For all of you who do not know the wrestling blood runs deep in the Balmforth family and Braxton has surely taken to the sport and really excelled at it. (Just like his Dad) We have jumped full force into the wrestling practices and tournaments every weekend from now until May 2 crazy I know but he loves it and that's all that is important. This weekend he wrestled at the Sugar Salem wrestling tournament where he placed 1st place in Folkstlye and also placed 1st in Freestyle he did great. He went 9-0 and pinned all is guys but two and won the others by points. We were also so excited because Braxton pinned all his guys in freestyle and was awarded the OUTSTANDING WRESTLER AWARD for his age. It was a great day Carson, Carter, Mike and I enjoyed being there cheering him on and what made the day even better was Braxton was able to see and share the day with his cousin Taylor as he was awarded OUTSTANDING WRESTLER for his age also. We are so proud of the both of them.

I hear Wedding Bells !

Congratulations Nick and Alex! Mikes little brother Nick got engaged yesterday and we are so excited for them. Alex is such a sweetheart and we are so glad that she is joining our family. My kids have really taken to her and she has been so good to them. We love you both.

Happy Birthday CHRISTINE!!!!!

Just want to wish my sister Chris a Happy Birthday! I know it's a little late in the day to wish her a Happy birthday but I have tried all day to try to figure out how I could get her password from her or her kids without being obvious so I could post a Happy Birthday on her blog. She has been able to get into all of our blogs to post a birthday wish to us but apparently I'm not that brilliant. Anyhow Happy Birthday Chris thanks for always being such a great sister and always being a good example to me. HAPPY BIRTHDAY and I think it's {haha ~ I know your pass word and I took out that number you put there~Chris!!} or something to old to mention right (j/k). Love you tons.

Christmas 2008

Our Christmas started out great. We started by going out to lunch and then off for our annual bowling. Carter and the boys were so excited as you can tell in the pictures to go and be with their cousins. After bowling we ran a few errands and made a quick stop to see my Great Grandma Carter at Fairwinds who will be 97 this year and wished her a Merry Christmas. We then hurried home to begin preparing our Christmas Eve dinner it was great we had all of my family over Mike and I bought a prime rib and my brother-in-law cooked it for us and did a wonderful job. We ate lots and lots and enjoyed each other but the night could not be over without a surprise visit from Santa. The kids were able to open their Christmas Eve present which is always pajamas.
It was such a great night and what made it the best is my Grandpa and Grandma Fillmore were able to be with us and even visit with Santa.
After everyone left our house, the stockings were hung by the chimney with care... and the tree was lit...
and the cookies and milk and our note to Santa was out, we all hurried to bed to wait for Santa. The boys were so very excited for Christmas morning and came to wake us at 2:30 asking if it was time yes you guessed it right we shooed them quickly back to bed and nobody moved until 7:30. Finally the boys were up and all the excitement began it was so fun to be able to watch them tear into it all.

It was a very busy but exciting day after opening presents at our house we quickly made the very snowy trip to Mikes parents house for breakfast an to open presents with them. Because of the snow it was quite an adventure to get us all to their house but we did it and had a very yummy, yummy breakfast. I just want both Mikes family and my family to know how much we love them and it will be a Christmas that will never be forgotten. Thanks everyone it was wonderful. Have a Happy New Year we love you.

Today was a pretty lazy day we slept in and then we took the boys and went to the move BOLT it was a really cute show and the boys really liked it. I am so glad that we have had this time to just relax and enjoy being together as a family.

We have a great couple of days yesterday we while the big boys were riding bikes Mandy and I took the boys and went to Fiesta Fun Family Center and let the boys play and run crazy. They were able to ride the bumper cars and spray each other with water and then ride the little race cars and play on the jungle gym. Then we took them to lunch and oh yes we were brave and even shopped a little.
