The Final Count Down!

Tomorrow is October and that means it is Baby Month!!!!!! I cannot believe we are down to the final weeks. Panic has taken over as I realize how much I need to do to be ready! Thankfully I do not have a lot of shopping to do. We are soooo good on the whole girl stuff department. I have bought a couple of new girly things, and we need a new baby car seat but other than that I just need to organize and finish rearranging dressers and stock up on diapers. At my doctor's appointment today she told me the baby was already in position, head is giving pressure, and I am dilated to a one! Woo hoo! Can you believe I am here again???? Wasn't it just yesterday that I was blogging about having my last baby. Oi!

Fantastic Day!!!

Saturday was a wonderful, wonderful, day!!! My parents were sealed for time and all eternity in the Washington D.C. Temple. For those of you who have known our little family for a long time this was a very, very, momentous occasion. I have been waiting for this day since I was nine years old! I am so proud of my parents. It had been a rough year for them, and to think that they have come so far is just a miracle! Being sealed to my parents was truly an overwhelming experience. Beautiful. I am so grateful to have the knowledge that this life is not the end of our families and that we truly will be together forever! So many wonderful people were able to be there..old friends, new friends and family! Thank you for coming and making the day even that more special.

Emily's Dance

This is proof of the Emily Dance...we can still get her to do it every once in a while. The best way we can describe it is a cross between the chicken dance and the Elaine (from Seinfeld) dance.

First Day of School

The first day of school this year was a whirlwind with new schedules, new schools, new teachers, and new clothes.

Dallin, the beaming first grader.
Elizabeth, the proud second grader, who is now at the "BIG" intermediate school.
And Anna, our woman-in-the-making, middle school student.

They were nervous and I have to admit I felt every bit as anxious as they did! Poor Audrey was devastated that they left her behind! (Did you notice her in the picture with Elizabeth, peeking through the , oh my, very hand printed, window...so sad). I tried to appease her broken heart with promises of preschool starting in October, but that did not seem to suffice.

Anna kept telling me that she would be okay if she could just make it through the first hour.
(I think the thought of getting to leave an hour and a half early to sneak off to a Killers concert is what really made the first day okay! And Dallin and Elizabeth were soothed with the idea of having a sleep over at Grandma and Grandpa's!)

Man, I am a cool mom!
