Welcome Home Gramma and Grampa and the Zoo Trip

What a fun time we had while everyone was here to welcome home Carol and Riley and to attend Maddie's baptism.  Oh how we missed you Virginia Cutlers!!!!!

Here are a few pictures from the zoo:

Too.Cute.For.Words....ok, just a few!

Today Carrie came into the kitchen, probably scrounging for food!  She put her cute little arms around my legs and I leaned down so that she could see my face and said, "Carrie, I love you!"  She looked up at me and said, "I love you, too!"  I picked her up and said, "Give me a hug."  And with those cute little arms around my neck, one hand patting my back she said, "This makes my heart happy!"

Oh my, there may have been some tears in this ol' tearless girl's eyes!

What a sweet little moment.

Jack's Valentine's Day Class Treats

Jack wanted something special to take to his class for Valentine's day, so I went on the hunt for something great - good thing I bought some candy canes for Christmas and then forgot about them!  He remembered that Coco likes hearts, so he wanted to share them with you.

New House for the Boise Cutlers!

Ryan and I have purchased a new home....we are very excited to say the least!  Below is a link with some pictures.

We are closing on March 28 and will then be adding a door from the garage and a mud room.  The dining room will be walled off to create the space.  We are also going to be doing a LOT of painting and removing some wallpaper....who's jealous!?

It's A Boy!!!

We had our ultrasound today and found out we are having a boy!

He is due the end of May, and no, he does not have a name yet.  We are open to suggestions though.
Jack is very excited to have a brother and the girls are both a little disappointed - they said, "Mom, we really wanted a sister, or a brother and a sister or just a sister."  Before the appointment I tried to talk to Jack about not being sad if it was a girl to which he responded, "If he is a girl, can I get an older brother?"  I am sorry Jack, that is not in the cards for you!  I am not having a 9 year old!  Jack is already talking about getting him a fishing pole, and making sure that he still gets the top bunk of the bunk beds that have been a huge source of argument lately.  The bunk beds are in our storage room, and I don't see them coming out any time soon.  Sorry kids, I am not really in the mood for another trip to the E.R.
The baby looked very healthy and we could tell he was a Cutler boy because he was being so stubborn! ;)  We could not see any of the other important things (like the heart, profile or stomach) so I get to have another ultrasound in a month.  She said he looked great, she just needed some clearer pictures.
We are doing very well, and appreciate all the love and support.  We had a wonderful Christmas, thanks to all of you!  Thank you all.  We love you and will update later.

Winter Wonderland!

We woke up to a beautiful winter day of falling snow and many, many inches on the ground just waiting for someone to walk in it, sled on it, and build with it!
We were pleasantly suprised with a "Snow Day" off from school.  Why is it that children can sense that and are up at 7 am anyways......I am somewhat looking forward to those stay in bed until noon teenage days!  Oh how I miss them myself.
My biggest kid or as we call him Dad was maybe the most excited.  He promptly got out the shovel and did the walks and the driveway then readied the Acadia for some Hookie Bobbin'.  Maddie and Mia had a BLAST and I must say that my first experience was great as well!
Carrie quickly got tired of the snow and was ready to come in.  She spent most of her time laying in the snow because she couldn't walk in it.  It was too deep!  So she and I brought Callie in and decided that we really liked the warm inside.
Ryan, Maddie and Mia then continued to shovel snow into a giant pile and made a cool snow fort.  What cute eskimos they all are.
Mia willingly came in but Maddie was all about the "5 more minutes".  I was finally able to lure her in with some hot chocolate.  The girls enjoyed their hot cocoa and Carrie enjoyed some "ICED SPIDER".
So, we have enjoyed our snow day and we are hoping that the rest of the day it only falls on the grassy can dream!

Boise Idaho Cutlers

Just a few pictures from the past few weeks.   We have been busy playing, coloring, Halloweening, and just being really cute!

Ryan and I went to Hawaii and had a lovely time.  So fun to go on vacation.....I love these kids, but they aren't always the best traveling companions.

We hope that you are all well and happy!  We are looking forward to the fast approaching holidays.

Take care everyone!
Ryan, Andrea, Maddie, Mia, Carrie and Callie
