Happy Little Family

December, Winter 2012, Mathew Picaso is 38, Jessica is 37, Rose is 10.5, Lola is 4, and Becca is 3.

Becca likes her new home. It took a bit of getting use to, you know with new rooms to explore and a nice big front yard to play in. She may be only a toddler but one thing she is super happy about is that her big sisters don't throw her toys around the house when they are in their way. That's the best part about having a new place to live.

Jessica picks up her youngest daughter, making a silly face at her. It causes Becca to laugh. Her mommy is so silly some times. Jessica agrees, it's nice to have a bigger place. It's also a necessity, not only because they were cramped in that tiny two bedroom apartment, but with baby number four on the way, they had no choice but to move.

And with more room comes extra space in Rose and Lola's bedroom to store all their stuff. So the house doesn't get as dirty as fast, which leaves more time to spend with Becca.

But once the girls get home from school things become a bit more active.

Lola loves teasing Becca with her toys. She thinks it's hilarious, too bad Becca doesn't agree with her.

But she soon grows tired of the game and heads to her room to play with Rose.

By the time Mathew gets home from work and dinner is on the table, Jessica is zapped of all remaining energy. But no one hardly notices since they are to busy scarfing down their meal.

Mathew thinks Jessica is even more attractive when she's pregnant. She has this glow that radiates from with in. Don't get him wrong though, he's always found his wife super attractive, and he has no idea why he had that small transgression with Sharla Ottamas. He's just glad that his wife finally forgave him and took him back.

The girls start out with a nice game of cop and robbers, even Becca tries to get in on the action. She can't wait until she's old enough to play with her sisters.

But the fun times soon turn sour as the girls start to torment each other.

Mathew scolds them, reminding them that their mother is trying to take a nap. He sends them outside to play in the snow.

After an hour their mom and little sister comes to join in the snowy fun.

Lola asks over dinner later that night just where do babies come from? She heard a few of the older kids as school say that babies come from a cabbage patch.

Mathew thinks back to how their soon to be new addition was conceived and decides that it's better that Lola believes in the cabbage patch for a little while longer.

Rose laughs to herself. Being in the 5th grade and internet savvy, she has long since known just how babies are made.


Baby Picaso is due February 2013.

On a side note if I don't respond to the next few updates that's because we are moving. The apartment building that I live in is undergoing renovations. So they have finally come to our apt. and they have decided to move us to a new floor. But instead of giving us at least a few weeks to get packed and moved, they want us out by Sunday. Mind you they just told us on Wednesday. ROFL So hopefully I'll have my cable, phone, and internet back sometime this coming week.


  1. Happy moving...I know you hate it. :P I had to laugh at this update. All those girls are a handful! It was funny looking back at the 'church conception' and the mess Matt has been in. I remember all that stuff.

    It's a good thing they're all loving the new place; more room for the new baby, who will be here soon!

  2. I somehow completely missed this update - Google Reader is being temperamental, apparently!

    Anyway, is it wrong that I'm kind of hoping the Picasos have another girl? Imagine a house with 4 girls - poor Matthew! Mind you, being a boy with three big sisters would be an experience too!

    I already said it in your other post, but good luck with the move!

  3. I think it would be so cute if they had another girl! :) In my game Jessica and Matthew have twin boys, John and Max.

    Good luck with your move!

  4. I missed this update as well, even with blogger :\

    I, like Carla and Shana, am hoping for another girl...or set of twin girls. I don't know why, but I am.


Thanks for taking the time to read and post! You guys are Awesome!
