Flowers? For me.

Joshua brought me home flowers tonight...just because.
Thanks honey, I love them.


I had another ultrasound today and the little one was sucking HER or his thumb.

Painted and Primed

The house is partially painted. The main color will be the light blue with white trim.

Here is the kitchen. All the windows will be trimmed like the 3 on top and the granite people are coming to measure the countertops tomorrow.

On the left is what the granite actually looks like, although it has a very blue tint in the picture on the right.

This is a picture of the doors, with a shot of the boys too.

This is the chandelier in the front entry and a view of the upstairs.

These are the smoke detectors...they're really new on the market and the batteries are automatically recharged by electricity, so they never have to be replaced.
Left: Bonus room and on the right: the view from the top of the stairs.

Kaden wearing Dad's ear protectors. Isn't he cute?

Cookie Anyone?

These were just too cute not to share.

Date Set

We are planning to be sealed in the Portland Oregon Temple on Friday, November 28th, at 7 pm.

For those of you who would like to attend or may possibly be able to come from out of town, please let me know so that I can book the appropriate sealing room for our group. Again, I apologize for the short notice. We realise that some of our family and friends who wanted to be here from other states may not be able to come, especially since the date is for the day after Thanksgiving and we understand. However, if your circumstances allow, we would love to have you join us.

I'm so excited! This has definitely been a month of big news. It will be so amazing to be sealed together as an eternal family. It's just a little sad, that the new baby had to be the one to nudge us to take care of things in a timely manner. Everything is finally falling in to place.

It's official...

Today I had my first ultrasound, to date the pregnancy. According to the results...our little baby is measuring at 10 weeks and 4 days. That makes my due date officially May 30th. They say baby looks good so far.
Now for some related news...because of the unexpected baby. We will plan to be sealed very soon, before I can no longer fit into my newly completed temple dress. The plan was to be sealed in the temple dress I made, since I never really had a wedding dress originally. I do apologize to those of you who live out of town and had planned to attend our sealing. We would still love to have all our friends and family there, but we understand that short timing may not allow it. We have the letter from Salt Lake authorizing us to be sealed and now we just have to get the right recommend from our Bishop and Stake President. I'll let you all know when we set a date...just keep in mind, that it won't be too many weeks away.

Trick or Treat?!

Joshua holding our little Sock Monkey.

We went Trick or Treating with some friends. Thanks Steve and Nicole for iviting us!
Left to Right - Back: A.J. "the elephant", Versii "the sock monkey", Kaden "as Bumble Bee the transformer"
Left to Right - Front: Megan "the skunk", Kylee "as Kung Fu Panda" and Erika "a monkey"
(This is the only time Kaden actually wore his mask.)

This was in someone's driveway and when Kaden saw it, he said, "Somebody got runned over. We have to call the ambulance. That man needs help!"

Kaden had a blast Trick or Treating!

Megan and Kaden getting ready for the next house.

Versii actually had fun Trick or Treating too. Of course, he didn't say anything and wouldn't hold his bag, but he thought it was fun walking up to everyone's houses.

I just love this picture!
