Playing at Grandma's house

Aunt Tricia was visiting from New York this weekend, so we spent most of the weekend up with family! It was warm enough that we could have a picnic lunch on Saturday. The kids played outside on Grandma's swings and loved it! Kaley is getting better at pumping her feet to keep herself going!
Handsome Dude! Thomas is doing pretty good at swinging on the big swings! He loves to go high!
The sweetest face!

Bella would lean back and wave! She just loved swinging!
The boys helped rake up all the sticks and branches in the back yard before lunch.
Love this girl!
Pure glee! This kid would be outside 24/7 if I would let him! Once this weather cooperates, he can be!

Dress up

My kids LOVE to play dress up! Every now and again I try to take a few pictures. This day they all decided to dress up in the Princess dress ups. Thomas plays along, but usually has a cowboy hat on too. You'll notice that he is playing the full part today with "glass slippers" and everything!
The littlest Princess

Sometimes, Thomas doesn't like to wear pants. It is not worth fighting him over it when we are just at home. He is such a funny kid!
This is one of the days that they dressed up in Thomas' dress up clothes. Kaley has on Thomas' black Sunday pants, and his yellow vest. She has also accessorized with a few bling of her own! You'll need to click to enlarge!
Just a close up of all her BLING! What a gangsta Princess!

Post Office Field Trip

I went with Kaley's class on a field trip last week to the Post Office. They each mailed a letter to themselves. They are putting the stamps on their letters.

Mailing the letters
Finding out where they go after you put them in the mail box...
What do the mailmen do?
Getting weighed on the BIG scale

Last stop! They got a sticker, and then we went to Carl's Jr to get out our wiggles!

Guess What?!

We have some exciting news in the Cox household!

We are expecting.....TWINS!!!

We have known we were pregnant for a while, but went in for our first check up a couple weeks ago and found out that it is TWINS!!! The shock is starting to wear off, and the excitement is setting in! We are due around the end of September, but are hoping to make it 'til the end of August/beginning of September.

As much as I would have loved to have called each one of you, it just wasn't possible! So, we'll just have to stick with blog-announcement style. :) Kaley and Thomas are excited for the new babies, although Kaley did require some convincing at first. We were ready for a 4th, but will be challenged with a 4th and 5th! I am up for the challenge! I must be crazy because I think it sounds fun!
(For those who are trying to remember how old my kids are....yes - I will have 5 children under the age of 5!)

I must say, that when I told Josh (he didn't come to the appointment with me because I thought it would just be a routine OB visit - hello, this is my 4th!), he was speechless! He literally didn't speak for the rest of the evening! He is doing better now, but is still nervous about the future!

We appreciate all the love and support from family and friends! I am so grateful to be where I am right now at this time of our life! I have wonderful girlfriends around that have already offered to help with anything! These next months and years will be awesome! :)

In Celebration of Spring

Today we went to the Mall and bought the kids flip flops! They were so excited to try them out outside! Kaley is her mother's child for sure! She LOVES flip flops! Thomas' feet have thinned out a little, so maybe this year they won't be so painful for him! Bella just loves them! Her flip flops have sparkles on them! So cute! While we were out side, we also noticed that we had a flower bloom! Hooray for Spring!
