Beware the moon!!

So, the kids and I went to Bajio's for lunch today and had quite the experience. While the kids were waiting for me to finish my salad Slater got up and was walking around a little. Suddenly the girls said, "Mom, look!" I turned around and Slater had his pants and underwear down to his knees and was bent over mooning his cute little white bum for all to see!!!!! I was mortified to say the least. It was one of those situations where I was as mad as anything and on the other hand I couldn't stop laughing. The girls laughed for almost a half hour straight. I tell you, that boy keeps us in stitches sometimes!

Just for fun...

I stole this fun tag from a blog of one of my friends. I thought it would be fun to see what you think. All you have to do is copy and paste to the comments section and add your answer. How well do you know me? Also, post this on your blog and see how many people know you!

Take a stab at my middle name?
Do I smoke?
Color of my eyes?
Do I have any siblings?
How many?
What's one of my favorite things to do?
What is my least favorite thing to do?
What's my favorite type of music?
Am I shy or outgoing?
Am I a rebel or do I follow the rules?
Any special talents?
How many children do I have?
If you and I were stranded on a desert island, what is one thing that I would bring?

So, it is official...

...we have decided to find out what our baby is when it is born!! Just the other day I thought..."What the heck! It will be fun to have this last little one be a surprise. I have already seen this baby at least seven times now and it still won't show itself...I don't want to be bummed again if we can't see what it is." When I told Dave that I didn't want to know what this baby is he was totally supportive and wants the surprise too. Ellie was a surprise so it will be fun that our first and last babies were surprises! Just thought I would let you know. The kids don't think it is so cool...they really want to know what we are having. So, the first week in September we will know...until then we are having a darling little "it"!

Outside fun!

The first three pictures are pictures of the kids out at my mom and dad's house. They were helping Papa pick up the grass after he mowed. The kids love going out to their house and they love running around in my parents huge yard. The other day they were able to help Nana and Papa with planting more in their garden and loved it.

A couple of weeks ago the kids were outside on a very windy day trying to fly Slater's kite and in the one picture with slater in his glasses do you notice the kite string is stuck on his glasses? Notice his funny ear? The other picture of Slater with the helmet is cute...notice his ear there? Hope you enjoy a few of these pictures!

I haven't posted in a while. Today I am very grateful for my blessings. I am so grateful for challenges and for the power of prayer. Sometimes life stinks but by putting our trust in the "Man Upstairs" we can feel peace and love. I have been going through a lot of things the last few days and feel so blessed to have my good family: A husband that I love and adore SO VERY MUCH!!! Children that are so wonderful and precious to me. I have amazing parents who love and support me and brothers and sisters that I can enjoy and do things with. I don't mean for this post to sound like a "testimony meeting" but I just feel overwhelming feelings of love and gratitude today. Challenges make us stronger and can help us more understand the unselfish sacrifice of the Savior. Today is a good day.

I really do plan to post some pictures soon. I have some fun ones of the kids.

We had an ultrasound and...

it looks like we will be having a mystery baby! Last week I was in the hospital for a painful cyst and the ultrasound tech said, "Oh, it looks like a girl...oh wait, the baby moved and now it looks like a boy." She said that my Dr. will have to figure it out. So, we went in yesterday for the sex check and the Dr. said, "Yep, I'd say it looks like 95% girl...oh wait, the baby moved and now it looks like a boy." The Dr. said I would probably have to wait about 10 more weeks to find out. Ahhhhh! I was so bummed to not know what this little person is. I guess I am having to learn patience in many ways with this pregnancy. I have had a lot of issues and concerns and I guess it shouldn't surprise me that we couldn't see what it is. Oh well, I sure hope 10 weeks will go by fast so I can get ready for this little person to makes it's appearance. My sister Megan with her first baby was told that it was a girl...when she delivered the "girl" it came out almost a 10lb baby BOY! I really don't want a surprise like that...I want to know for this last baby! I guess we will all keep on guessing as to what it is!
