Hump Day Ramblings

It is that time of the week again. Hump Day. That middle of the week day, when you are climbing that big hill! But guess what, once you get over the hump, it is all downhill from there!

Because these are my ramblings, and I can talk about whatever I darn well please. I am dedicating the next few Hump Day Ramblings to my Christmas back home. I know what you are thinking...But Kai, Christmas is over! Yes yes I know, but I have trouble letting go of the holiday spirit, so lets celebrate a little longer okay? Okay!

So after seven, yes SEVEN, hours in the car, I finally made it home to good ole' Bakersfield. The whole time there was only one thing on my mind...sex! Okay get your mind out of the gutter! I mean the sex of the baby my brother and his wife are going to have! haha! Let me explain...
So Shea and Sarah were waiting for Bryn and I to get home, so they could announce the news to the whole family. But, leave it to them to find some cute and special way to let us know!

They gave us this cake...and we had to cut into it, and whatever color the frosting inside was would let us know if it was a boy or a girl. Um, HELLO! Cutest idea ever, right?? A fun way to surprise everyone, and free cake? Sweet deal I say!

So we cut into it, and I obviously was too excited after finding out to actually take a picture of the inside. But, anyways are you ready to find out? Are you sure? Its a....
Boy!!!!
I am going to be auntie to a little baby boy, and I couldn't be more happy or excited!!!!! Not the only problem is that I need to control myself from buying every cute little boy thing I see, in fear of going completely bankrupt. I just can't help it, I am so excited to have a little bambino around!!!

We do already have a lot of boys in our family. I am actually the only girl (with the exception of my mom and Queen Sass Sarah of course!) in the family... The boys are as follows...
Broseph #1(and avid Lakers fan, clearly.): Shea (a.k.a Shea-D)
Broseph #2(and fellow writing enthusiast): Bryn (a.k.a Bryney)
Boy #3 (and fatty puppers): Roddick (a.k.a. Roddy)
Boy #4(The baby boy of the fam...for now): Blake (a.k.a. Beeky or Beeks. Don't ask.)
There you have it...I am surrounded by men! No wonder I have always been more comfortable around dudes....it all makes sense now! 

Anyway, I cannot WAIT for the little boy to arrive. We are so blessed to have such a great family, and to have the opportunity for our family to grow. I thank the Lord every day for providing us with such great things! 

I forgot to tell you the best part, this baby being a boy means I am still the youngest girl in the family. Which means that I still get to be the most spoiled, for now. Muahahahaha!

Stay tuned for more on the Mercado Christmas festivities!
