New House!!

For those of you who haven't heard the big news...Dan and I purchased a new home! Very exciting but so much to do. We take possession on June 25th so we will have a very busy summer. The girls are very excited as there is a huge yard, and a pond in the front, so they have all the room they need to play and ride their 3 wheelers. The house is beautiful...it is a log home with 3 bedrooms, 2 baths and just the most beautiful lot ever. We are making a few changes right away so we hope to be in mid to later part of July. So once all the work is done and we are settled in we will definiltey have a big party to celebrate. We are truely blessed in many ways!!!

Rodeo Queens!!

We loaded on up and went to the Rodeo last night. Mary Kate loved it and watched the whole thing. Anna on the other hand - was just Anna! We had a great time and yes we did get all cowgirl'd up!

Emily & Adam's Wedding

Emily is no longer a Bendlage - now she is a Fett. Congrats to Emily and Adam - they make a wonderful couple and the wedding was out of this world. The girls had so much fun being flower girls. They both actually walked up and back at the church. They were wonderful during pictures thanks to the help of Tonya, Danielle and my mom. Both them and Reagan were the flower girls and they were just adorable. Emily looked absolutely stunning! Then at the reception Mary Kate definitely showed off her dance moves (some not so great) but she was the center of attention with the boys and she loved it!! Watch out she is going to be a heartbreaker!!

First Day of Preschool!!

Mary Kate started preschool today. What a big day for her!! She was all excited about her new classroom, her backpack and the princess and kitty folders that she picked out. I think she wanted me to leave and for the first time in a long time I realized how big she is. I left her at school with a smile, but as soon as I hit the car the tears just rolled....it is sad when your babies grow up!! But I know she is in a wonderful school with fabulous people and she will do great. Good luck Mary Kate!!

Baby Bendlage #3...
is soon to be!!
We are expecting yes,
another little one.
Be it boy or girl
(most likely girl #3)
we are as excited as can be!!!

Yes this was planned so it wasn't that much of a shock to us. We did a little planning as the girls are in Abbey's wedding in May and I am the photographer so we definitely had to have this one prior to May or a few months after - so Abby I will be ready to party on your big day!! We are very excited and the girls are too. Mary Kate told Grandma Connie "I'm going to have a baby sister!" I do think she is probably right, however, it is going to be a surprise so we have convinced her she will be happy with either a boy or a girl. When we told Anna she said, "No baby!!" She definitely has it coming. We are only 8 weeks and this is our first ultrasound of a little peanut...if you can even see that. All is good so far and we are due on Danielle's birthday - March 10th is the big date.
