Gender of the Baby!

Tuesday  we found out the gender of the baby we are going to be having in May.
First off let me tell you the ultrasound tech lady was so funny, she seen the gender right when she started but she wouldn't tell us until she had a good enough picture and it was driving my husband insane, he kept saying its hot in here lol
Finally she got a good enough picture and we are having a............BOY!!!!
His name we have had picked out for just over 10 years now Wyatt David.

Its day 4 now that we have known what we are having and the shock is still around. The first 2 days I had to reassure my husband that yes that is what the tech told us. He is so funny, I'm pretty sure he still doesn't believe it so I had to tell him when I go back in in 3 weeks for another ultrasound I will have her double check just to prove to him that yes he is going to have a SON. I keep hearing myself say I can't believe it we are finally having a boy, it is just still so crazy for me. Now this will be the first boy on my husbands side of family after his parents have had 8 granddaughters now they are going to have their first grandson. Its really weird hearing my sister in law say nephew too.

Now that we have 10 years of girl stuff its time to get rid of all of it and start buying boy stuff. I already purchased my first outfit for him along with a little baseball hat. 

Well if anyone has any advice for me on raising boys it would be greatly appreciated lol

Baby at 8 weeks
Tomorrow we get to find out if we are going to have another baby girl or if by some rare chance we are finally going to be getting a boy. Either way its going to be very exciting, I really just hope for a happy, healthy baby.

Crayola Pop Art Pixies Review and Giveaway.

Recently I was given the opportunity to try the new Crayola Pop Art Pixies by Myblogspark.

This new line through Crayola is for Tween girls. With new characters such as Skye, Maya, Tatum and Naomi. And 14 different crafts projects.

Meet Skye! She’s sweet, thoughtful, and always thinking of others and how she can help save the environment. She loves the outdoors, playing soccer, friends, wildlife and hiking.
Skye’s Pop Art Pixies craft kits include: Create a Water Bottle, Wooden Charm Bracelets, Skye’s Herb Garden and Wind Chime kit.

Meet Maya! A free-spirited young lady, Maya lets her inner creativity show and encourages everyone to express themselves without judgment.
Maya’s Pop Art Pixies craft kits include: Create a Glass Pendant, Shadow Box Kit, Create a Water Color Frame and Create a Sun Catcher kit.

Meet Naomi! She is big into technology and music, and can mix music with the best of the best. Music is her life and her DJ spirit inspires her desire to communicate more through actions and sounds than words.
Naomi’s Pop Art Pixies craft kits include: Create a Stationery Box and Create a Color Glow Lamp.

Meet Tatum! The bubbly, social butterfly of the Pixies and famous for her cupcakes, Tatum is fun-loving, outgoing and likes to host parties for her friends because everyday is worth celebrating.
Tatum’s Pop Art Pixies craft kits include: Create a Decoupage Glass Plate, Party Lights kit, and Create a Mosaic Picture Frame.

Along with each new character and new crafts your kids can also enjoy the online world at   where they can get to know the Pop Art Pixies and also enjoy the virtual Clubhouse.

Now my kids really enjoyed each craft they got to try. My oldest who is 10 got Maya's shadow box kit and loved it. My 8 year old got Maya's glass pendent kit and again loved it and said it was so easy. Now I know these crafts are for tweens but I also gave one to my 6 year old to try out and she got Naomi's color glow lamp kit and had no problems what so ever figuring it out. I also gave out one another 6 year old and she got Skye's wind chime kit  and loved it. And then for a 7 year old I let her try the Tatum's decoupage glass plate kit and she again loved and but was afraid that she might break the glass. silly girl.  We still have Skye's water bottle kit left and also Naomi's create a stationary box.  

Now thanks to Crayola through Myblogspark they are offering 1 of my readers a craft package that will include the following: 

Tatum’s “Decoupage Glass Plates” kit
Naomi’s “Create a Color Glow Lamp” kit
Naomi’s “Create a Stationary Box” kit
Skye’s “Create a Water Bottle” kit.
