It's a.....

Baby. And it's a girl!!! I was very surprised to find out it's a girl. I really thought I was having a boy. I don't know why. We only make girls in this family. :) We are so excited and can't wait to meet our baby in June!

This is awkward to post just a picture of me, but I never took any pictures of my pregnancy with the other 2 and since this is our last, I am going to try and document it. So here we are at 15 weeks.

Sweet Shelby

We have all had a bit of a rough week. Keaton got sick on Saturday, but got over it pretty quick. Shelby got sick on Sunday with a fever and cough . By Tuesday evening her fever had jumped to 104.4 so I took her into the Instacare. They told us she had croup and to ride it out. She still has a fever though. :/ It's been almost a week. On Wednesday night I had this unbearable pain in my neck and I couldn't move it. I went to the ER and they did a spinal tap, x-rays and some lab work. Everything came back fine and they sent me home with some pain meds. The whole time I have been sick, Shelby has been so sweet and caring. She will tickle my back, bring me tissues, drinks without me asking. She will also come up and snuggle with me and tell Keaton that she needs to stay with me. She is such a sweet girl!

Christmas morn


Merry Christmas!

The yummy breakfast!

We had a really great Christmas this past year. Each year, it just gets better and better with the kids. They are so much fun to be around. We had our traditional candlelight dinner on Christmas Eve at my parents. I love that tradition! Then we played a game and opened some presents. Later that night we went to Tucker's aunts house for their Christmas Eve party. Lots of good food! Christmas morning was so much fun. The kids slept in until 8:30. Mom and Dad came downstairs so they could watch the kids come in to see their presents that Santa left them. Santa sure spoiled them this year. They must have been really good! After presents we went to the Steeds where Debby makes the most amazing breakfast. We are so lucky to live next to both of our families. Christmas was so much fun. I always get the blues after it is over.

Gingerbread Houses


Shelby's house

Keaton's house


A few of the houses. I don't know what is up with Keaton's face.

I love our traditional family gingerbread house night. My mom and day get a ton of candy and makes everyone gingerbread houses to decorate. Shelby and Keaton had lots of fun designing their own houses this year.

Party #2




Party #2 was awesome. Everyone brings soup so their are a bunch of different kinds to try. My aunt brings my very favorite soup in the world though, so that is all I eat. After a great dinner they have a little program. Shelby wanted to go up and sing with Ada so I let her go up there. She got stage fright when she got up there so she left Ada flying solo. The funniest thing happened after that though. As soon as Ada was done, Keaton goes up and grabs the microphone and out of no where starts singing Jingle Bells. I was laughing so hard, that I was crying. I wish that I would have had my video recorder. It was so cute!
