It's a. . . . . .

I found out today that we will be welcoming a little baby girl into our family around April the 6th. Today was a very special day for me. I have had a special feeling that a little girl was waiting to come down to our family for a long time now, even before we knew I was pregnant. I feel like she was meant to come to our home at this time and I couldn't be happier. On the way home from my doctors appointment I just had to have a good cry. . .darn those pregnancy hormones!
The kids are really happy too, although Dallin still had his heart set on a little brother. Each of the kids keep talking to my belly and hoping she can hear them. It's pretty entertaining to hear what they each have to say to her.

Check out my 3 new posts!

Princess Alise

I just had to show off my pretty girl. Alise was invited to a princess party where all the girls dressed up like princesses. She told me exactly how how she wanted me to do her hair and everything. After we dressed her all up she couldn't stop smiling. She felt so beautiful. She had a great time at the party.


Maleah- was a cute little kitty. She sort of looked like a leopard but she told everyone she was a cat. She loved all the dressing up, and she's continued to dress up everyday since. I think this opened a whole new door for her. We found her late one night (while everyone was asleep) in the middle of her room in a princess dress.

Preston- had his mind made up and he wasn't going to be anything but a pirate this year, so I got creative and made something for him. I think it really turned out cute!

Alise- was a snow princess and she loved posing for these pictures! She tilts her head just right and does a half smile, she is so hilarious!

Dallin- decided he wanted to create his own costume this year, so he made himself a ninja costume. I think he was pretty creative! Around his mouth he tied a soccer sock. . something I would have never thought of. Gregg and I had a good laugh, but Dallin was very proud of his creation. Earlier that morning he came into my room wearing all dark green, he had those green soccer socks on his arms and he was holding a light savor, and he had his knees tucked into his shirt as he attempted to walk around, he said," I am Yoda." I laughed so hard, and told him I didn't think he could do that all night while we went trick-or-treating.

Pumpkin carving

The kids really had fun carving pumpkins this year! It's our family tradition to sit in a circle and carve pumpkins together.
