We were given a special gift for three months. I went today to hear the little heart beat of our baby for the second time and found that our little baby had decided to go back up to be with our heavenly father. I am so grateful for this wonderful gift to have been able to carry this baby and be with it for such a short time. Even though we didn't get to meet it sure brought a lot of joy and happiness to our sweet family. I know God lives and loves each and everyone one of us. I know he has a plan and that with his mercy GREAT things are brought to pass. I am was truly blessed with this great experience. And will be sad and mourn its loss but know that its little heart was sick.

We headed to Moab for another fun time in southern Utah. The kids really love it and Honey and I enjoy the scenery, hiking, biking and restaurants. The flowers were in bloom. The temperature was just right and the only challenge was driving 12 hours and when Janey spiked a fever and she came down with hand, foot and mouth. She is doing well now. Hope everyone is doing well.

After telling Matthew that his pants were on backwards, he found an unusual place to change!

So excited!

We are excited to announce we are going to have another baby. We told the kids it was coming for Christmas. Even though it will be here earlier due December 8th. Matthew asked in how many boxes I thought it would come in. I love kids and their curious minds. He also thought I would be pushing it out of my foot. So he might be confused still since I just told him I would bring it home from the hospital after I pushed it out. No more details need, few close call. As for the other boys they are excited. We are getting set for another great baby.

We also wanted to thank everyone for all your thoughts and prayers. We feel were answered as the IUI or the doubling of the medication never need to happen. We truly feel like we have been watched over. We are excited that its one baby! We have seen the heart beat and all looks great.

We are hoping everyone will find sometime and come hang out at our house and spend some time with us at the beach this summer. Love ya'll as they say here in North Carolina.

A Little Swinger!

We went to the park in Coeur d'Alene and Janey was swinging by herself. Listen to the joy! (Sorry, I can't figure out how to rotate it. Any suggestions?)

The Saga of the Slippers

I started crocheting slippers for Dan and Honey's family for Christmas.
It took a couple of trys and Dan's "pickles" are a little strange - but don't they look cute in them? (I made the pink shawl for Sunni when she was little and now Janey can wear it!) Behind them is the gorgeous view out our window in Coeur D'Alene. We were up there for meetings and Dan and the gang drove over from Missoula to spend Saturday with us. The weather was wet and rainy but we still had a blast! Can you say shriveled fingers? 3 hours in the pool and hot tub will do that to you!
