I promise I will post pictures if Iever find the laptop. Brandon used it for work one day and put it away. Apparently we don't put it in the same spot so I don't know where it is and never remember to ask when he is home. Just a little update...
Brandon- is working crazy hard. We are so proud of him and he is so lucky to be where he is. He has started doing all the litigation cases for the company and is getting so much experiance he wouldn't be able to anywhere else. We see less of him but at least he works close and can come home for lunch.
Andrew- Bless his heart, has so much energy he might not get to stay at his school :( Poor thing. He has to meet with some pshycologist and what not for the school district when they get back from winter break. But at least he will be with the program he will work with in Kindergarten next year.
Berkelee- she's two! There is much more to say about that :) We are all looking forward to when she stops trying to push buttons and is just our darling Berkelee again. We sure love her and she sure knows that. Thats half the battle :)
As for new baby, probably Eric- He doesn't seem to like being in my belly :) I had an ultra sound two weeks ago just cause I am having lots of issues, and he is so low that you can't even get his head in the ultrasound. Silly boy. But he is also long and skinny. They said he was at least 3 lbs 8 oz which is what my book is saying he should weigh next week and that was two weeks ago. ahh! At least if he comes early he will be the size of a normal full term baby. And if he goes full term... well at least he will be healthy and I will have good drugs :)
Sorry I am pictureless again. But I have really cute pictures to post. Especially with the snow. There is a lot of snow here these days :)

A blurb and a tag

I love tags, even when people don't tag me sometimes I steal them and do them anyway, it makes me happy :)
I haven't posted a lot lately cause I was in Salt Lake. I love going up to play with my mom and visit with friends. I had a fabulous baby shower, and wonderful thanksgiving and productive day after thanksgiving shopping trip and evena couple naps. So all in all I am a pretty happy camper. My kids are just as intense as usual. I am going to post some pictures tomorrow cause I have to use the lap top to do it for some reason and I don't want to pull it out twice and I am having an ultra sound today so I will take some pictures of pictures if I get any. I have about 9 weeks left (that is seriously happy) it's been one rough pregnancy so I have decided he will either be the cutest baby or the best baby EVER to make up for it :) So far his name is still Eric, but I met a really weird Eric the other day so I am still fence sitting on it, so feel free to reccommend ANYTHING else.

10 years ago......
1: I was on the swim team at Marv Jenson

3: Enjoy the benifits of staying home with the little man in the rain all the time state, Oregon
1 year ago.......

2: I was working at my hair school (so fun)
3: Enjoying my friends and family

I voted.

Right after I had Berkelee I became an American. Brandon thought it was so weird that I had lived here since right before my 10th birthday and it hadn't been something that even crossed my mind. (Don't get me wrong I love living here but I was pretty torn because I am pretty proud of the fact that I was born in Canada). Anyway today I voted, and I hated it. I feel like I can't make the right choice. Politics frusterate me to no end. I feel like they always put a hiden agenda inside another message, that they bash people left and right and in the end everything and everyone comes out looking like a bad person and option. So now that the craziness of the election will be over and we all are so excited to hear about something else I am nervous that all it will be is what the person who won is doing wrong. It makes me crazy. It's a good thing Brandon like politics cause someone has to right.

Happy Halloween

I am pretty sure I have the cutest Batman and Snow White out there. Halloween was such a fun day. We spent the morning doing Berkelee's hair trying everything to make it have a little volume. There wasn't much luck but she was so good through it all. We did curlers and round brushed and used a curling iron we even back combed and french braided a fake head band in there so if her head band came out (cause normally she would pull it right out but she didn't score more points for Berkelee) it wouldn't look like to much of a mess. I think I had a lot more fun with it all then she did but shh don't tell. I told Andrew to pull so Ninja moves for me in his super cool costume but instead I got hands over the eyes. He was just trying to show me that he could use his other sences to fight me :) Berkelee was dancing all over tha place in her costume so it was pretty funny. We took them to our wards trunk or treat. They had a little party inside (that is were Berkelee is making a cookie with Brandon and yes she has a fat lip. She is accident pron this one) I didn't getting any pictures trick or treating it outside cause I was handing out candy so sorry! But they are pretty cute!!

What the random

So yesterday I went to pick up Andrew from school and as I pulled out of my neighborhood I saw break lights. So as I slow down to see what is going on what do I see in the middle of the road? Yup a heard of sheep. Seriously I knew Cedar was little but who knew I would actually have to wait for sheep to cross the street.

Kids with attitudes

Everyone thinks their kids are the cutest kids ever, and I am so glad I am part of that everyone. I am still not quite sure how I could have any part in making these personalities but what can you do. They seriously crack me up. I am pretty sure you can hear Berkelee saying whatever in the first picture. :)


Last night we finally got to carve our pumpkins. Brandon is a very busy guy and with these two kids it was a two parent job :) I let the kids pick out their own pumpkins at the store and then Brandon and Andrew craved his and
I helped Berkelee. They are too funny and have to go check on their pumpkins all the time. I love these little traditions. :) Happy halloween. I can't wait to post pictures in their costumes :)

Andrews party

We had Andrews birthday a few saturdays ago. He had so much fun. He decided that it was about spiderman this year. And got very mad that I didn't buy more decorations (opps) He cracks me up. Thanks again to all of you that were able to come.

Holy Honk!

I don't know why I am so suprised but when I looked out the window and saw snow I almost died. I am sure many of you had similar experiances, and I know there will be many more to come but wow... snow!

My cute kids had their well child check ups yesterday. Andrew is finally slowing down on the charts he is 54% in weight and 23% in height (who would have thought it was possible) Berkelee on the other hand is as big as ever she is 53% in weight, 99% in height and 35% for her little head. She is actually only 41/2 inches shorter than Andrew... crazy!! They are both doing great and still mad at me for making them get shots. :)

Andrew is 5

I can hardly believe that today is really the day. He is 5, time really flys by, I swear it was like two maybe three weeks ago when we were lucky enough to have him come to live with our family and now it is 3 and a half years later and he's 5... goodness. We sure love this little man and are so glad he is part of our family. He is the best big brother to Berkelee and is so excited to have a brother. I couldn't ask for a better "oldest" he is the best. His party isn't until the 18 but we will post pictures for sure. I just wanted to give him a little Happy Birthday. We love you bud.

Tuesday, September 30, 2008

Thats right... we had our ultrasounds and a new little man is coming to our family. We couldn't be more excited.

The good part of yesterday

When I was little my mom made me watch Pollyanna like a hundred times so I would learn there really is a good side to everything you just have to look. Well yesterday it wasn't to hard to find that good side. One of the tests they had to run was an ultrasound of the baby. Our appointment is tomorrow so it was fun to get a sneak peak. They even sent us home with a few pictures. So of course I took pictures of my pictures so I could share. It was cute they waved at me. I could see all the little, long fingers moving to say hi :) Of course they don't tell you anything so I will have to wait until tomorrow to know everything is ok and if it's a boy or a girl but I loved getting to peak and see whats going on it there :)

My no good, very bad day

Yesterday sucked! I wont lie. Brandon needed to get caught up on work so he bailed on me for church and I missed the last week cause I was still sick with the flu/head cold drama, so off I went by myself. They kids did really well, and Andrew even said his part in the Primary Program ( I was proud he has a hard time with primary cause he HATES singing) But in the last class I was feeling AWFUL. I don't event think that discribes it. Luckily when I got home after the kids made me chase them down Brandon was home thank goodness cause I was dying. I haven't been in that much pain for a long time and I was freaking out so the doctor had us go to Labor and Delivery. Not something you want to hear at twenty weeks. I started feeling a little better when I got there thankfully, but I was still pretty scared they ran eighty hundred test (I got cute pictures of the baby) and thankfully I was not in labor. But at least I didn't go for nothing. I have kidney stones again. Isn't that fun. Seriously... I am so tired of being sick. I can't seem to catch a break but at least the baby is ok :)

Berkelee's birthday party

We were so lucky to be able to come up to Salt Lake to have a little party for Berkelee's birthday. It was so much fun. We love being with our friends and family and couldn't have asked for a better birthday for our little lady. Grandma Rachel sent us a little money so we even got a darling outfit for her to wear

to her party. Thanks everyone for helping us celebrate.

Berkelee is two!

These ones are between one a two. I always had a hard time getting people to believe she was only one

These next couple are between about 5 months and a year

Our new little lady... these are from the first few weeks of her life.

I can't believe my baby is two! I thought I would look through some pictures today I then cause I got caught up in her cuteness I had to post them I can't believe how much she has grown. She is totally a little person. No more baby :( We sure love you Berkelee
