Our Easter Suprise!

So, if you haven't already, watch the video...it's short, I promise. We found out our wonderful news this afternoon at home. We were very excited and so were the boys. When we told them, Emanuel was in the garage getting all the Easter baskets to bring in the house. When he came in our room, arms full of baskets Drew said, "Hey Manny, guess what?" Well, guess what only has one answer at our house and Emanuel instantly guessed correctly and answered "What? Mom's pregnant?" Drew nodded yes and all the baskets fell out of Emanuel's arms onto the floor! He looked up and said "Are you serious?"
Brandon was also very excited. They were most curious about the actual pregnancy test, wanting to know how it worked, how it was that it can tell you you're pregnant. Although I must say, they weren't as excited to hold the test when they learned the logistics of how it worked.
So the best I can figure our due date will be on or around November 30th. We know exactly when it happened...Albert's birthday. Happy Birthday to him!
The kids are already debating whether or not it's a boy or girl. Albert says he wants a boy, so do some of the kids. Jackson says he really wants a girl. As for me, this is probably the first time I don't really have any opinion as to which it is...we have more than one of both so I'm quite happy with a suprise!
We had a lovely evening dying eggs and talking about the exciting event. Tomorrow is church and a lot of family time! Easter is the perfect opportunity for the little ones in the family to learn about Jesus and the miracle of salvation and the Cross. We have really downplayed the Easter Bunny. Of course he's going to visit and the boys are excited but we've really made an effort to focus more on the meaning and miracle of Easter. Now we have an extra miracle to celebrate.
Have a blessed Easter everyone. We'll update again hopefully tomorrow evening.

WOW! Another fall baby!
So, curious, when we last spoke & you had missed...was that when you were already preggo? I'm trying to remember when that was...last month? A few weeks ago? Ok, it probably was...
Well, anyway, completely & totally excited for you- mainly cos now you don't have to lose weight. LOL
PS I guess Brandon was ready when he said "it's about time Mom." Smart boy!

Deb,
Last time we talked on the phone about it was when Shannon visited. we had planned to try that cycle but things had gotten busy around the house and thus not too much trying ensured. So we missed that month. We weren't really even going to try this last cycle but it looks like Albert's birthday celebration did the trick! So now, thats one baby born on Alberts birthday (Brice) and one baby conceived on Albert's birthday.

Oh Ang, how wonderful! I pray this baby will be a match. I also agree on down playing the Easter festivities and focusing on the real meaning. I didn't have to worry about it this year, but I'm sure next year we will.

Congrats to you, Albert and the kids!
