Seth is certain we are going to look like a zoo. My sister said we'll look like a circus. And while I'd like to respectfully disagree with them, I think they may be right.
In April we will have our 5th child, or should I say son. Because we know that's all we can have in this family.
On October 27th, we should be able to confirm it's a boy. I'll be 12 weeks along this week - which means morning sickness should be ending any day now. Hallelujah!! And I'm due April 11th, which means I'll probably go into labor April 15th.
So there it is, I should probably change the name of our blog to The Allen Zoo.

I was contacted by CSN Stores to do a review on items of my choosing. It was SO hard to choose. They have so many fun, exciting looking things. Their selection of items really seems endless. I spent so much time looking at toys, outdoor stuff for Seth, home decor and on and on and on. In the end, I chose items that I had been wanting to buy for a while. I had been wanting a couple new cooling racks, since I only have one, and I really, desperately needed some new pans. My pan set was the $30 one from Wal-Mart, and I really hated it.
So first I chose the Nordicware Kitchenware 16" Stackable Cooling Rack Set. Not only do you get 2 large cooling racks for a great price but they can stack to save counter space. How awesome is that?! I love these racks. They stack easily when I make cookies and they are large enough when I'm cooling cakes. They are very heavy duty and sturdy. They are fabulous!
Next I chose the Rachel Ray Porcelain Enamel Skillet Triple Pack. All I can say about these pans is that I love, love, LOVE them. They are very heavy duty. The handle isn't heavier than the pan, causing them to be tip (like my cheap set). They are truly non-stick. They cook evenly, even when using burners smaller than the pans (which once again is not something my old set did). They are just simply put- fantastic! I'm so glad I decided to get them! I will say I would have chosen the Brown Set, but they were out of stock, so that was a little bummer. So instead I went with the ones that match with (or clash with) my beautiful countertops.
Thank you CSN Stores for the wonderful opportunity! I am totally and completely satisfied with everything!!

Cole started Kindergarten on Monday. He was nothing but excited for it. He did get a little nervous and was holding on to me once we got to the school (I think he thought I was just going to take him to the door and leave.) Once we got inside the class he found his name tag and chair and got right to work, he didn't even seem to care or notice when I was leaving. He rode the bus home the first day which just made him look so big as he was getting off of it. When he was telling me about it, he loved everything except that "it was SO long".
waiting in his class line before his teacher came out to get the class (it was cold and I didn't think to have him grab a jacket cause who needs a jacket in August?!)
