Happy New Year!!!

It has been forever since I last blogged so I thought I would update a little!! As most of you know we are expecting a baby June 8, 2010 and could not be more excited. I have to admit I was a little apprehensive at first about expanding our family but as our baby is approaching 3 years old, I am really missing the baby stages. I try and treat Owen like a baby and he tells me,"mom I am a big boy now." So soon enough I will get my fix along with the joy of another addition to the Hoyt family!! Madelyn is also very excited about the change and Owen is still a little unsure what is going on. Gabe is hopeful the baby will be born on his birthday June 9th.
As I continue to be the Organizer of the BBSAHM group, I stay rather busy. I love all the activities we are able to enjoy and the wonderful group of mothers and children that I am able to share memories with. I have such a great support system which makes my job that much more enjoyable.
Madelyn is halfway through her school year and could not be a happier girl! She never ceases to amaze us as she is 4 going on 14. Such an independent child with a very imaginative mind.
Owen is our passive child who keeps us on our toes. He is very busy! He loves going to play dates and hanging out with mommy. He is really into science fiction movies lately. His favorites are ET, Pete's Dragon, Chronicles of Narnia, and Evan Almighty.
Gabe just took a week off for vacation time and my Dad and 3 brothers were able to come down to visit for a few days. We were able to go to Knott's Berry Farm and the 2010 Rose Bowl. It was a great time!! In the meantime Gabe got very homesick and set a goal for our family to move back to Oregon in 2011. He really misses family and the beauty of Oregon!!! He continues to stay busy at work and we could not be more blessed in these hard times! We are continuing to make some improvements on our home and memories with our friends before we make the big move!!!
I hope everyone is doing well in this new year!! We hope to have an enjoyable and eventful year!! We'll keep you posted!! Much love!!
