So, I just thought I'd let y'all know that we are expecting! Yep, we are hoping that Daisy, our sweet dog, will be having puppies toward the end of March. If she is pregnant, she will be delivering some Labradoodle puppies. More about them later. I'll find out in about 3 weeks or so if she is in fact prego and will give you info to her web site, etc.

Oh, and I almost forgot to mention that I am pregnant as well!! Yep, the third little Long baby is growing healthy inside me and is currently 8 1/2 weeks. We had our first ultrasound yesterday and saw the baby and heartbeat. The baby is measuring about a week behind, but the doctor is going to stick with the 8 1/2 mark since I'm positive about that date. The due date is Sept 8th and, no, this one was not a surprise. Exciting stuff!! Click on the small link "comments" and drop me a line sometime. =)

My Dear Husband

Today is my sweet, handsome, skinny and crazy husband's 28th b-day (he's a youngin') HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! We can't do too much celebrating in the way of eating because John started a crazy 21 day "detox" diet today where you only eat organic fruits and veggies and protein shakes. He's also taking sooo many vitamins (something like 30 pills in one day...??). CRAZY! Sounds good, huh? But it's all through a doctor so it's a legite thing. I'm not sure what I think about the whole "detoxing your body" so it will be good to see how he feels when he's done. We did go out to dinner with our good friends on Tuesday for a great steak at Flemings and tomorrow John & I are going to some bike thing...not sure what it is....bike race or something, I don't know...anyway, that's how we are celebrating his special day!

John....you are an incredible husband and father and we are all so blessed to have you in our lives. Thank you for loving us, loving the Lord and being the amazing provider that you are. I hope your day is as special as you deserve...even though you can only eat veggies!! =)
LOVE YOU!! Maddy, Davis & Me

Pretty Pink Party

Today is Madelyn's 3rd Birthday!! We've pretty much had a 3 day celebration for her and have made some wonderful memories. On Monday we drove down to Disneyland and went to their newest park, California Adventures. We spent the night at the Disneyland Hotel and then went to Disneyland on Tuesday. It was great!! We had breakfast with the characters (which Davis was terrified of!) and went on most of the rides. Today, her official b-day, we had a little party for her, complete with pizza, a pink cake and pink ice cream.....all of her requests! Grandma Ann and Aunt Traci come over, as well as Brian, Sarah & Lincoln, and Nate, Becky, Collin and Samantha. It was a very special day! Here are a few pics to share....
