Our family will be experiences three life-changing events in the next few days and weeks! First, we'll be welcoming a new baby girl into the family any day now. Next, we'll be moving to Eastern Idaho (I'm trying to convince myself that I will be able to handle the weather over there!). And last, Hal will be starting a new job. All taking place during the month of March! Sounds like fun, doesn't it? Actually, we are really excited for all 3 events and looking forward to what the future holds. We know this is the right path for our family and feel that we are being blessed. Life is good and we're still smiling! :)
I have been so horrible about remembering to take pictures of myself during this pregnancy. Probably because I'm the one who is usually behind the camera taking pictures. So here I am at 38 weeks. The end is in sight and we can hardly wait! We are filled with anticipation and excitement as we prepare to meet our baby girl.
We'll let you know when she makes her grand arrival!
Madison lost her first tooth! We noticed it was wiggly shortly after Christmas and it finally popped out a few weeks ago. She was so excited to leave it out in her new tooth fairy box the night it came out. She left out some gum for the tooth fairy and was thrilled to see she had been given a 50 cent piece. Hal and I can hardly believe our little girl is loosing teeth. She's growing up way too quickly. I had to hold back the tears when I saw she'd lost her first tooth!
My poor blog has been highly neglected, I know. Most of you have probably given up on me actually putting together a post! I'm finally getting around to doing an update and I can't just skip putting up a Christmas post, so here's my best effort of making it short and sweet!
We headed south to Utah for Thanksgiving this year. One of our stops was to visit my Grandma Elam. The kids adored her and it was so sweet to watch her play with them. Quinn and Grandma had a ball playing cars together! I love my Grandma so much and wish I got to see her more often.
Here are the cousins enjoying their Thanksgiving meal. Ryan polished off the turkey drumstick all on his own. Impressive! Not sure where Quinn was???? Thanksgiving dinner was delicious and didn't disappoint. I didn't get a picture of the beautiful pies my sister made, but they were oh so yummy!
Our turkey feathers that we mailed out to family were a success! The kids loved checking the mail box each day hoping for a feather to arrive. We loved reading as a family what our other family members are thankful for. This has been a fun family tradition. We had our first snow fall this week. Quinn doesn't have boots or snow pants quite yet, so he had to wear Madison's old ones. When I first put on the pink boots he said, "No Mom, I want black boots." But after I explained to him it was either wear pink boots or not play in the snow he decided he'd go pink this one time.
