Mike has PASSED all four sections of the CPA exam!
I know this is his accomplishment, but I feel just as much relief and excitement about him passing as he does. I squealed with delight and jumped up and down when he told me. I am so very proud of him and so very excited for him to put his study material away and not feel guilty about spending time with us on Saturdays again. This has been a big weight on his shoulders and I'm so glad that this weight has finally been lifted and just in time for busy season. Now he only has to worry about his current clients/jobs and not about this exam any more. Congratulations honey we are beyond thrilled, proud and excited for you!

What's a post without a few pictures of the boys. Here are some from the last two days.
Carter sitting in his new wagon that we got him from Christmas. It's not meant for him to sit in, it's for his Lego's, but what the heck. It makes him happy, therefore it makes us happy.

Our little bruiser smacked his head against the corner of the kitchen table leg yesterday. You can barely see it here, but this one left a huge goose egg on his forehead. Yet another war wound for Carter. He's always so busy and never slows down to watch where he is going.

Owen 12 weeks after a bath. Still has all of this hair and is now adding some baby rolls to his little body. I love his chunky little chin and everything else about him. He's been such a happy and mellow baby this past few weeks. I'm also in love with his smiles, waiting 10 weeks was totally worth it.
Another after bath picture. Poor kid, I think he has my lips, or lack there of.
The past three nights we've had an unwanted visitor in our backyard... a possum. And boy does he look scary. Good thing we have the dogs to let him know he's unwanted in our yard. Too bad the dogs don't know it's not polite to our neighbors to bark like crazy at the possum at 4 a.m.
