Christmas 2008

Keep in mind that this Christmas was as bad as it gets. I was so sick that for Christmas day I made mac and cheese. I was so sick I couldn't stand to be in the kitchen. We did our best under the circumstances. Morning sickness was not kind to me during this time. The kids had a great time and that's all that matters.

I love this photo because it has all three kids hands in it.
We each ate a cookie for Santa before bed.
Christmas Morning, we don't give our kids lots of toys at Christmas but they did get a few things.

Bridger was happy playing with one of Logan's toy Lego's and his High Chair. This kid is very easy to entertain!

Tomorrow is FIVE YEARS, that Mark and I have been Married. Five years since we were sealed for Time and All Eternity. As many know we were Married on our fourth date. Here are just a few pictures our our short courtship and some pictures of our wedding. We have been having the time of our lives. I'm so lucky to have my Best Friend on this Journey of life with me.

Our Baby has a Heart!!

I have been an emotional wreck this week. There has been a lot going. I went to the doctor last Saturday. The doctor was very upset when he saw my results from the ultrasound that he reviewed the test. He said, that because I have a swollen ovary that is producing hormone for the baby. He said because of that it changed everything. It meant that my dates could be off, and that the baby was very small. Needless to say we have prayed a lot! Mark and I have been stressed so much over this hoping and praying about our baby. So today we went back to the ultrasound room. Thinking that I was still going to see no heart beat imagine my surprise when not only was the baby bigger but there was a strong heart beat! I cried tears of joy. This baby is such a blessing to us. Our due date is July 30, 2009. I want to thank all our friends and family that prayed for us during this time it has been very emotional but now its all looking up. Although we will need more prayers as we are expecting our 4th child (and they will all be under Four!). We couldn't be happier.

Party time!

My kids are starting to go to birthday parties. I find it fun that little kids can get so excited about parties. Here are some picture from a birthday party that they attended. Bridger enjoyed watching the other kids play.

Mark had to go down with Logan, he needed 'help'.

Mark played with Bridger, too.

On the right you can see little Lola liked to disappear into the maze, we couldn't keep her out.

My Baby

Today is the day I had my ultrasound. I went in with such dreams and hopes for this pregnancy and for the baby that would be to come. During the ultrasound we found that the baby is not growing and has no heart beat. I still have my swollen belly with my baby. I just don't have a baby that will grow. My heart aches. Today is my day of tears. I know that everything will be fine in the end. As I wish that my baby would be ok I know that Heavenly Father has a plan. Please understand if I just want to be alone right now as this is very hard for me to go through.
Much Love,
