We had over 25 kids show up and it was a BLAST! The kids got messy, but had a great time doing it. My favorite mess was when Dylan, Tyson, Luke and Scottie all painted their faces blue. It probably wasn't as exciting for their Moms, but they had a lot of fun doing it.
The boys were cracking everyone up!
Face Painting was a hit for most of the kids!
She also got a trunk full of more dress up clothes from Mama Lou and a Cinderella dress!
She still wears her princess dresses everyday while we're at home. I won't let her wear them in public, or else she would absolutely wear them everywhere! She had a great birthday and asks everyday when her next birthday is. I don't know how we'll top this one!

Lexi is done....It had been a few hours!
Tyler on the train ride...He loved it!
We decided to find out the sex of the baby and after dragging my feet, I finally got an appointment. Matt and I were trying to make it a special family day, especially for Lexi. When we got to the office, both her and Tyler were ecstatic to find the a huge bowl full of tootsie rolls. They went to town on them, which probably didn't help our situation at all seeing that they were already acting like monkeys. When we finally got called back for the ultrasound, Matt was about to lose all his patience trying to keep the kids in line. Tyler was scared and confused because it was dark and Lexi was talking non stop to the ultrasound technician and not letting the poor woman do her job. Well, you could tell the ultrasound technician wasn't too impressed with our parenting and we got that 'and you're having more kids' look. Anybody who has kids has had that look. From right off I knew it was a healthy baby because of it's vibrant energy! We were all getting anxious to find out the sex when the evidence became very clear to anybody watching the screen. It was very obvious we would be having a baby boy. After the ultrasound technician reassured us it was indeed a boy, Lexi got angry with her and was quick to tell her she was having a baby sister. Lexi was sure this lady was wrong. After some arguing the technician decided to leave the discussion for Mom and Dad to explain.
We left the office excited, well, all of us except Lexi. She looked a little confused but still wouldn't admit that she was having a brother. I thought it would be a good idea to go get a treat for the kids and Matt wanted to take them to the park. We were still trying to keep it a special day and maybe get Lexi excited about our newest addition. She hardly touched her ice cream, but couldn't stay angry enough to resist the swings. On the way home we tried talking to her about boy names, but she still didn't want anything to do with a boy. She was definitely having a sister.
It's been 3 weeks since then and she still hasn't given into the fact that this is indeed a baby boy. I tried taking her shopping for boy clothes, but all she wanted to do was look at the baby girl dresses. I've continued to ask her what she thought about baby boy names. She finally suggested Gaston, but once I shot down that name I crushed all hopes of excitement. Hopefully in the next 4 months we can get her excited about a boy...If not, we might have to name him Gaston!

Of course, Tyler has no idea, which might be a good thing. Lexi on the other hand is very excited about her baby sister coming. We don't know what the sex is yet, but Lexi says she does. The only reason I'm hoping for a girl is because I don't think she will let me bring a baby boy into our house!
The kids are finally getting used to our new lifestyle of laziness and Lexi has officially turned into the biggest boob toob I have ever seen. If I didn't feel so lousy, I would care more. Matt on the other hand, is ready for me to come back to my job. He has been wonderful, but I'm sure he's getting tired of doing everything around here! I couldn't ask for a better partner in all of this and have absolutely no room to complain.
We don't have any new pictures of Lexi, but her Great-Grandma Jackson just made her an "Annie" dress. She has been dying for me to take her picture in it, so as soon as we do, we'll post it up. By the way....she is so much cuter then the Annie in the movie! I might be a tad biased though...
