Big News!

Alright I am finally ready to share this news with the world. We are expecting again! I am 12 weeks pregnant! Seems like just yesterday I was 4 weeks and finding out. It has gone by so fast. It was pretty hard to keep it a secret, but as time went on it got easier. Lots of bumps along the way including testing positive for H1N1. I've been sick with a cold since the first week of November and then last week (the day before Thanksgiving) went to Urgent Care where I found out that I had swine flu. Then both kids and hubby got it along with Ashton getting croup too. We are all on the mends now and I am so thankful that the flu hasn't turned into anything to major. This pregnancy isn't as easy like it was when I was pregnant with Peyton. I've lost 10 pounds due to a big food aversion and smells. Finally got some medicine to help. Can't wait to eat again!

We are very excited to have another baby. Ashton will be three years old and Peyton will be almost two, 22 months older then this baby. I am due June 10th, 2010. Just after the first of the new year (in 6 weeks) we will be finding out what we are having. I can't wait and I already have my suspicion as to what this little bean is.

Our new additions

On Saturday we adopted 2 new kitties. It was only suppose to be one, but I later found out that Sophie came in with Mimi and after hearing that the owners dropped them off because they lost their home I couldn't separate them. Poor kitties lost their home, their family and almost lost each other. I had to take both. They also gave me a 2 for 1 deal so that helped.

Here is Sophie. She is about 1 years old. Loves attention and is very friendly. She is a big talker and purrs softly.

She is very good with kids. Practically another Bella. Sophie was not harmed, but you can see that she lets the kids touch her even if they grab her face.

Next is Mimi. Yes this is a different cat. She is 2 years old. It's possible that Mimi is the mother of Sophie. Mimi likes her privacy and distance. She is still warming up to her environment. She lets the kids pet her, but does prefer to observe from a distance. She purrs very loudly.

Time for some side by side shots. These cats are almost identical. Mimi's eyes are more green and Sophie's are more yellow. Both their right front foot is white and both their left front feet are black, but Mimi has slightly more black then Sophie. If your a cat expert you can tell Mimi looks a little older the Sophie.

A friend comes over to play

Today Ashton had a friend come over to play. Brody is almost 2 and Ashton and Brody play every Sunday in Nursery.

They played so well today. They would run from Ashton's room at the end of the hall back to the living room. Ashton followed by Brody who was followed by Peyton who was followed by Bella. It was so funny!
Of course the big hit was playing with cars.

Then there became a sweet moment. Brody had taken a liken to Peyton. For several minutes he had his arm around her.

Peyton wasn't too sure about what was going on though. She even got down, but he followed and tried to put his arm around her again. It was very cute!


Well, first I'm very disappointed in myself for not taking many pictures. I am on the committee for our wards trunk or treat and I was way too busy to take pictures of my cute kiddos that night. Luckily the next day was Halloween and I got 3 photos, but should have tried to get more.

Ashton was so cute in his pumpkin costume. He really enjoyed wearing it and loved carrying his own bag. He said, "trick or treat" about 3-5 times at each house.

This is the only picture I got of Peyton in her costume. She was a fairy and she loved being all dressed up. She too loved carrying her own bag. So much she wouldn't let it go.

I thought this was funny. He saw the moon and started talking and pointing to it.
This was our first Halloween with the kids where we went trick or treating. Both Ashton and Peyton did so well. It was also pretty nice weather here for just having snow 2 days prior. Nice weather equaled a light jacket and even people had their doors open when we got to their house.
Thank you Marianne and Phil for coming and helping me out since Taylor had to work. It was a lot of fun having you both over.
