Gavin loves anything that has water. He is always trying to pull the hose out to the sandbox to fill a hole or trench he made. When he is at Grandma and Grandpa Spence's, he likes to fill up their pond. At Grandma and Grandpa Losee's, he likes to fill up their sandbox. Well, the other day, he hit the jackpot! The stream at Casey's parent's house fills up in the fall, and so now there is water there. He was so excited and got to work to build a dam. Such a boy!

Cold Mornings

Since the nights have gotten cooler, Casey likes to open all the windows in the house to let the cool air in. It makes it pretty cold in the mornings, and I always get in trouble from Gavin. "Mom, I tell you not to open the windows! It's too cold!" Here they are this morning snuggling in their blankets as Gavin waited for his ride to pick him up for preschool. I just thought they were so cute.

It's a GIRL!

We just found out this week that we are expecting a little GIRL! We are so excited, well, I am so excited, Casey is so nervous. I thought for sure we were having a boy because this pregnancy was just like my other two. We even had a boy name picked out. Now, we have no idea what this lady's name will be! My sister-in-law just had a girl, and my sister Autumn will be having a girl a month before I am, so I am excited for these little girls to grow up together!

Pregnancy has gone well. I am glad to be out of the yucky stage. I hated not being able to enjoy food like I usually do. I miss my daily nap now that school is in, but I do fell like I have more energy now.

Here I am at 20 weeks. I broke out the maternity clothes this week, and it feels nice to be able to breathe again!


Need it say more?

Sadie Marie

My little brother and his wife just had their 1st baby! We are all so excited to have her here and we think she is just beautiful! Gavin has been very interested lately about babies, so he was really excited to see her for the first time.

My Little Preschooler!

It is so much fun to be a teacher and finally have one of my children join the school world. I do wonder what kind of a student he is, but he comes home happy every day and is already learning so much, so I hope he is doing good for his teacher!

And we can't forget my little side-kick. He's going to miss his little buddy for a few days of the week, but I love being able to spend time with just him.

Happy Birthday to me!

My birthday was on the 16th of August, day before meetings and school started, so I wanted to spend it all day with my family. I never can get Casey to Thanksgiving Point with me, so that is what we did. We visited the Farm Country with probably about everyone else in Utah Valley because it was $2 Tuesdays. I probably should have chose another part of Thanksgiving Point, but it was still fun and the boys loved seeing the animals.

That evening we went up the canyon for dinner. It was so nice a cool up there. It was a wonderful day!
