Cheaper by the half dozen??

The Storm was served cookie cake for breakfast this morning. I wish I could say that was unusual and a treat in and of itself. Unfortunately, they often eat junk for breakfast.




While the cake itself wasn't a huge surprise, the message on top was...




After a check-up this morning, where we got to hear the heart beat, and were told everything is moving along just fine, we were ready to tell our BIG news.

I brought in a cookie cake that said, "Hudson Baby #6." Our kids love cookie cake like Cookie Monster loves... well, cookie cake. Her Highness read the cake aloud, then looked confused.



When it finally dawned on her what we were talking about she squealed,


"YOU'RE PREGNANT???!!! AHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!! YAY!!!!" The Storm quickly followed her lead.




They've all made super sweet comments through out the morning. We went to the pool, and on the way home Thunder asked if the baby enjoyed it's first swim. I love those monkeys.




We're all excited. Due date is January 1st, 2012. But according to my C.P.A. husband, this baby is required to make an appearance before then for tax credit purposes.


I'm hormonal. So feel free to re-read this post (click here) before making any comments.

Congratulations Holly! What exciting news! You are such a wonderful mom! And no, my sister and I are not twins...we just look a lot alike! :)

Dana said...

LOL, I remember the last announcement... You two just can't keep your hands off each other :) Guess we won't be getting The Momtage up and running again any time soon :).

And some practical info.. Because I have already checked it out for my friend that already has six and has a Nissan Quest.. Both the Honda and the Toyota minivan have a bench seat that you can replace the middle bucket seats with. Quest does not...

Tell Her Highness that I'm going to get my girls praying on her behalf right away! We're starting a campaign, "Her Highness needs PINK"!

Congratulations! I love you!
