Pretty cool. Let us know what her name will be

She was born at 10:16am. 8lb15oz! 20 2/3 in long. Her name is tba! Welcome to the world baby!

This is a new experience for me. I got up this morning at 3:15am, got ready and now we are on our way to the hospital to have a baby. Wish us luck!

Emily requested one last belly shot. I went in today and I am at a 6 now. Hopefully that means I'll go soon and fast! (But not so fast I can't get to the hospital!) if all else fails, I am scheduled for induction on the 27th. (Darn that insurance deductible starting over!)

Merry Christmas everyone! We are sending out Valentines cards this year since a Christmas card without our newest seems so incomplete! I hope to be posting good tidings of great joy for our family soon!

We love you!

(This IS Cedars pose). We got a fun package from some friends in Japan. Included in it were these little puzzles. They are 150 pieces and when put together make a 5x7 puzzle. Even harder is that 3/4 of it is white! Cedar had a good time putting it together! Thanks Tomoko!

Aspen and Hannah. They got to shop and help out behind the scenes!

Daddy and Cedar shopping till they drop!

One of our new favorite Christmas traditions is to go to central services and "load the sleigh." It's where you help package all of the angel tree gifts to be picked up by parents. Last year was our first time helping and the kids couldn't wait to go again this year. I love to see them getting so excited about picking out Christmas gifts for OTHER kids. We always leave with a big dose of Christmas spirit!

Happy birthday Olive! I can't believe you're 8!!

Linden really enjoyed the rain this morning! The driveway had a little stream that he could play in. Too much fun!

Blast From The Past: 2005 Slideshows

Here are some slideshows of the kids we put to music back in 2005. About 18 minutes or so if you watch them all.

We did Olive's party the other day. My mom got a really cute idea to dip water balloons in chocolate and let them dry into bowls from Pinterest, but the chocolate was so hot they popped! Hahaha.


First, they decorated goody bags with lots and lots of stickers.
We also had the candy table ball game. It is where you wrap up a whole bunch of candy and the first person gets to get it. Then the next person tries to roll either doubles or a specific number, your choice.

The kids racing.

At the party, I was a coach. We split into two teams, so my dad, Cedar, and I were coaches.

Linden doesn't get the fancy $10.00 sets, so he gets plastic ones.
One of the activities- racing.

It's official guessing time! Our baby girl is due December 25th, but as of Tuesday she would be considered "full term." I have never gone very early. Aspen was 4 days early, Cedar 45 min late, Olive was right on time and Linden one day late.

My mom gets here the afternoon of the 20th and she has had perfect timing. If she's not here by the 26th, I will schedule an induction on the 27th. My mom leaves the 30th. (And our deductible starts back at 0 on the first which would make her a VERY expensive baby!)

Now it's your turn! Chime in and tell me when you think she'll come. Winner gets ultimate bragging rights. Guess the day, time, her height and weight! Good luck!
