Dancing Turkey

A Christmas Decoration that we have is a Dancing Turkey, he dances to Jingle Bells. At first Emily was not sure about him, but by the time Christmas was over she LOVED him!! She would request that he be played over and over again as she would dance to the music!! Here is a little video of her dancing "with" the Turkey. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GJurhOj3yY8

Guess What!!

Paul and I are proud to announce to upcoming arrival of baby #4!!! We had a visit with the doctor last night and all looks good. We are still amazed to see this tiny 2 inch baby with all 5 fingers and toes, to see it's little heart beating and know that all is well so far. I am 12 weeks along and the doctor gave us the due date of July 28. I am coping fine, sick as usual, so when the doctor told me I am 12 weeks I was super excited to think only 12 weeks more of feeling sick. I have been tired, more tired with this pregnancy than the others, maybe it has something to do with running after 3 other little ones. We are unsure as to where the baby will be born possibly here in Spain or back in Texas. We are VERY excited and wanted to share our joy with everyone!!

Sunny Saturday!!

What a Day!! Today has been a sunny, warm day in the low 60's with blue skies for miles. This type of day is fairly normal in Spain this time of year. This morning we had pancakes for breakfast, this is Nathan's FAVORITE breakfast meal, well pancakes and french toast. I think it is really the syrup that he enjoys to eat and the pancake or french toast are just vehicles to get the syrup into his mouth. After breakfast it was playtime, then Kayla got her hair cut, not exactly a professional cut, but when I have to constantly tell her to look up, sit still, stop moving around, what can you expect. It turned out fine and since she is only 2, almost 3, she doesn't complain too much.
After the girls nap we headed out to the pirate ship park where we played for a bit then walked along the sea front looking fro sea shells, then back to the park area where we played with the soccer ball. Well, Nathan and Paul played with the soccer ball while Emily ran around chasing them trying to get it before they did. Now the kids are eating their dinner of popcorn, hot dogs, pasta, cucumber and carrots. We had to throw in the vegetable to give them a little bit of nutrition!! ...and that was our day in sunny southern Spain.

Traveling Lightly...

I was just going through my pictures and I came across this one, this is a picture of our luggage before we left Oklahoma City to come back to Spain in November. Before we left OKC we had to purchase a new suitcase (the large gray/orange duffel bag). This brought our total of luggage up to 7 pieces plus our 4 carry-on. We had all of the bags packed to busting point and had to leave a few things behind until next time we are in town or someone comes to visit us. Just wanted to share. This is how we roll.....
