The kids actually sat on Santa's lap this year except for Brandon. He had nothing to do with him. Ashlie asked for a Diamond Castle barbie. Matthew was a little nervous so when he got off santa's lap Jeff asked him what he asked for. Matthew said " I think I just messed up, I told him I wanted a new buzz, but I really don't I already have one" It was hillarious! So we decided to write santa a letter and ask him for what he really wanted a Batman costume, where the wings pop out.
Here are a few pics of the kids decorating the tree. They were so excited. Pretty much just the bottom half gets decorated and then Jeff and I adjust it just a bit after they go to bed. I thought it was cute that Brandon would hang the ornaments on the lights and not the tree. I love watching the kids get so excited and each year gets more fun as they get older.
Our Thanksgiving was really fun. We traveled to Salt Lake and stayed with my Sister Heather. We had fun playing rock band, games, fishing, going to temple square, and playing at the parks. It was so fun to see family and I am sooo sorry to all of my friends there who we did not see. Please don't hate me!! It was a fast yet very busy trip. I will catch you next time.
I can't believe Kyle is 2 weeks already. I know that is still so young, but it's gone to fast for me. He is such a sweet boy and is growing well. So far during the night at 2 weeks old you give us about a 4 hour stretch wake up, and then about a 3 hour stretch for your next feeding. You like to be held, we can only put you down for about 10 min at the MOST. You like when your bro's and Sister talk to you, you just stare at them until you get board. I am finally adjusting to life with 4, the hardest part is all of the running around i have to do for school and such. But we are managing.
Last weekend we were able to attend the BYU football game. We went with our friends the Brockbanks. We really had a good time and had awesome seats( 5o yard line about 10 rows up from the field). We took kyle with us, and he basically slept the whole time except to wake up and eat. I think he really enjoyed his first football game.
This is kyle at 1 week old. We are really enjoying him he just melts my heart, and the kids are always asking to hold him. So far he is pretty good, but I have to know better that things change from week to week.
Ok I know I am a little behind, but here are a few pics of Halloween. The kids really had a great time and the weather was really nice this year, you only needed a long sleeve shirt. Grandma Bone was able to be here while waiting for kyle to come which was really fun. By the end the other 2 kids were ready to go, and brandon was still trucking along.
In Ashlie's pre school they had a little program where they sang some songs to us, and then the rest of the day they decorated cookies and candy, and played games. Fun times!
Ok, Here are some pictures of Kyle. Sorry it has taken me so long. He was born on Nov 5th and weighed 8lbs 2oz and 20 inches long. I believe I already said that on my other post, but oh well. Things went pretty good, we went in to be induced on the evening of the 4th. It was not the labor I was expecting for a 4th child, but over all it was good. We love Kyle so much, and the kids can't get enough of him. So far he is a wonderful baby!! I told him because he was a week late he had to be perfect. We will see. Any way hope you enjoy the pics, I need to try and get some better ones.
So it is Sunday night, and I am now 5 days over due!!! AHHHH I am so frustrated and DO NOT want to be pregers any more. I am so ready to meet this little guy and to hold him and kiss him. And to make matters worse, my mom flew in last Thursday, and leave on Tuesday. I am scheduled to go in on Tuesday night at 8 if nothing happens in the next 2 days so Wednesday is the official day. I can't believe my stupid doctors are making me go 7 days late especially being my 4th kid. What's the deal with that!! So here is to hoping that he will come tonight ( you think he would know the drill being the 4th kid) or tomorrow.
Well, I have been awake since 5 this morning and can not sleep. I am so frustrated with this baby, and can only think about him coming, I also worry a lot and hope he is ok. Maybe the more I stop thinking about him coming he will. Today is Halloween!! I can't believe the weather this week it has been in the mid to high 70s and today is going to be 75. It will make for a nice night, and it will be nice not bundling the kids up so much. Well here is hoping to a fun Halloween night and hopefully a BABY!!!!!!!
Well today is Wednesday, and I think that today is really my due date and not yesterday. I was thinking about it and looking in my book and every Wednesday is when I change weeks, which makes today exactly 40 weeks. So Still no baby!! I have an apt today at 1:30 so I really hope that I will have the baby tonight. Last time with Brandon, I went to my apt that day and I was already dialated to a 4 and did not even know it. So I am really hoping for that same thing. Wish me luck!!
So I just had to write, and say I am so happy about gas prices right now. I drove by the station the other day, and it was 2. 62 then the next day I drove by, and it was 2.42. Who knows, today it may even be cheaper. I really hope it stays this way, because it actually makes travel more possible, but we all know good things are to good to be true! Well we only have one day left, and no baby yet. I guess I will just have to sit and wait. Which I hate!!! Pray hard that I will be in the hospital tomorrow.
Jeff and I were married on June 16th, 2001 in the Salt Lake City Temple. We met at BYU during Jeff's last year of undergrad. I am a busy mom of 5 wonderful children who are very busy themselves. M is 11, A is 10, B is 8, K is 6 and L is 18 months . They are all doing well. We enjoy camping, rock climbing, running, canyoneering, and our new found sport of family bowling. We hope to have a fun and eventful year.
