Been to long....

Well, Christmas has past and it is almost the new year and I have not updated for awhile. We have been super busy! My Mom and Brother came to visit the week before Christmas. It was wonderful to have them here. We celebrated Christmas, My mom and Brother took me out to PF Changs for my Birthday, we also went to a light parade, mom and I went Christmas shopping. We also made Christmas cookies and just had a wonderful time together!! The kids enjoyed spending time with them too!!

Christmas eve we hung out at home and Priscilla Finstad came to going us. The kids opened gifts and had so much fun!!! Christmas we went over to Rex and Nora's and ate with all of them and just hung out and talked. It was a very relaxing Christmas.

I have to go to bed but...

I just had to share my accomplishment for the day. I organized our master closet! It was a disaster to say the least. I worked on it from 9:30 till about 1:30. I am so so so soar and tired but it was so worth it. It looks amazing!!! I will have to take pictures. I dont think it has been that clean since we moved in, lol. I am excited to have everything in its place and I know were everything is and can find the clothes that actually fit ;)... Plus now I have room for Autumn's things, I need to go through her clothes in the next few days to make a list of what we still need for her.

Tomorrow is another day and my goal at the moment is to go through all of Aubrey's clothes and Clean the bathroom. We will see how much energy I have. Well, I so have to go to bed. So good night!

29 weeks

I am 29 weeks tomorrow..... Autumn has been moving so much it is really cool. Aubrey got to feel her baby sister 2 days ago. She just kept saying I feel her. Aubrey loves to talk to her it is so sweet!

We put up our Christmas tree Friday and decorated the house for Christmas. What a change from not decorating our own house in over 5 years. It was nice to be able to use the decorations we have. I actually found decorations that still had tags on that I did not know I had. So very neat, plus I got to use all of the Awesome ornaments my Grandma and Grandpa Marsh have given me through the years for my Birthday. SO very special! I can not wait to see the one they got me this year!! I miss them alot!

Zander and I are enjoying a chilli day at home, cuddled up in front of the tv and just enjoying the Christmas shows on Disney. It was funny this morning I had to drop the girls off at school and I did not get dressed so I ust ran down in my jammies. Well, I had to drop somthing off at the post office and pick something up. I thought it would be quick well not so. There was a line out and circled around. So everyone saw us in our jammies. At least it is the norm in Yucca, lol!! Not something I normally do ;)

27 weeks today....

Today I am 27 weeks pregnant, it is amazing how time seems to be flying by. She is moving and growing my next appointment is the 3rd of December. I got my bood drawn the other day for the glucose test and I have a huge bruse for it. I have never had a bruse this bad from just getting my blood taken.
I am packing and getting ready and trying to clean up the house before we leave for Colorado for Thanksgiving weekend. I am really looking forwad to seeing my parent for a few days but not excited about the 12 hour drive with 10 people in the vehical. I think I have everyone packed but myself and Craig. I really dread packing!!! Now to get it all in a bag and make sure I dont forget anything important.....
I took Alyvia to the doctor this morning. She has had a cough for 3 weeks now. They just put her on some antibiotics for her cough and said if she did not get better by the time the meds were gon to bring her back. She was so glad she did not have to miss school. Today is open house at school and they were doing projects for it. So she was excited when the doctor told her she could go.

First Blog Post....

It is almost Thanksgiving, where has the year gone? It is amazing how fast this year has gone by! Soon it will be Christmas and then Autumn will arrive ;). I am due in less then 3 months with Autumn Grace... I feel like it was just yesterday we found out we were pregnant with # 5. We found out the Friday before Fathers Day and were blessed to find out October 3rd we are expecting another beautiful baby girl.

Zander turned 3 on the 2nd of October and we had a fun Pirate Party on the 3rd... He is already planning his next party, a helocopter party, lol!!! He is obsessed with helocopters. He is getting so big, he loves to do puzzles and color. He also loves to build with his blocks and play ball with his sisters! Him and Alyssa were playing soccer this morning before Alyssa went to school and he was so sad to see her leave. It is so great to hear there laughter!!

Aubrey is enjoy Preschool and doing all of the work the kindergartners do. She really likes it but recently I have noticed she has been getting super tired so she is staying home a little more. I have been making her take a nap at least twice a week. She is really trying to learn to write her name. We even work on it at home, she is determind to learn to write all of the letters, lol.

Alyvia is doing so good in school. She got all A's and 1 B on her report card. She really loves to get 100% on her spelling tests, which she has on everyone. She loves to draw and she is a great colorer. She is getting good at reading and enjoying it. Now I just need to find some intersting books for her to read.

Alyssa is growing up so fast, to fast!!! She is 10 and doing great in school. Like Alyvia she got all A's except one B on her report Card. She loves to read. She is such a great helper and loves to help me make dinner and write special notes for Craig and I. She is such a sweet heart!!

I better run go and get the girls from school...
