Bring It

I shaved my legs today because I am officially full term!!!!! So bring on the wedding, shower, Thanksgiving, what ever but stand aside if this baby wants to come because I will not postpone. As if I could and I only shaved from my knees down but this pregnancy that is an accomplishment.

Oh and Debbie I think you should sing that song from The Sound of Music at your wedding. You know the one that goes something like

What will this day be like? I wonder.
What will my future be? I wonder.
It could be so exciting to be out in the world, to be free
My heart should be wildly rejoicing
Oh, what's the matter with me?

I've always longed for adventure
To do the things I've never dared
And here I'm facing adventure
Then why am I so scared

A FISHING GUIDE with FIVE children
What's so fearsome about that?

Oh, I must stop these doubts, all these worries
If I don't I just know I'll turn back
I must dream of the things I am seeking
I am seeking the courage I lack

The courage to serve them with reliance
Face my mistakes without defiance
Show them I'm worthy
And while I show them
I'll show me

So, let them bring on all their problems
I'll do better than my best
I have confidence they'll put me to the test
But I'll make them see I have confidence in me

Somehow I will impress them
I will be firm but kind
And all those children (Heaven bless them!)
They will look up to me

And mind me with each step I am more certain
Everything will turn out fine
I have confidence the world can all be mine
They'll have to agree I have confidence in me

I have confidence in sunshine
I have confidence in rain
I have confidence that spring will come again
Besides which you see I have confidence in me

Strength doesn't lie in numbers
Strength doesn't lie in wealth
Strength lies in nights of peaceful slumbers
When you wake up -- Wake Up!

It tells me all I trust I lead my heart to
All I trust becomes my own
I have confidence in confidence alone
(Oh help!)

I have confidence in confidence alone
Besides which you see I have confidence in me!

Debbie you will be a wonderful Mom and wife welcome to the family. (Though I doubt you actually read my blog, but welcome anyway.)

Kaitlyn's Baptism!

Well BYU football had a bye this week so we decided to schedule Kaitlyn's baptism. It went pretty well. Caleb did keep taking off his shirt and clothes in an attempt to get in the font and scream when not allowed but all in all it was nice.

I sure love the man and girl in this picture. They both try so hard to do what is right and are such strengths to me.

Oh and I am kidding about waiting until BYU's bye to schedule her baptism. Incidentally, I too was baptized on Nov. 5th. We were born on the same calendar day and same day of the week. Kind of fun for a mom.

Wood Stove and Kitten

We lit our first fire in the wood burning stove today just to test it out. It is nice to have the smell of cedar in the house and it feels so cozy. My family heated the house in the winter with wood burning stoves and so it is a bit nostalgic for me.

This Kitten is soo cute. He lets Caleb carry it around and is just really even tempered. It is supposed to stay outside or in the garage but I break down and let them take it inside for a little bit as long as they don't just let it go and run around.

She wanted pumpkin spice cake in the shape of a gingerbread girl. Unique I guess.

Traditional pinata! Jesse

Random Pictures For my Kids to Remember

At the Loa Fair.

Kait and Miriam

Cousins, cousins, cousins.

For a small town parade they sure got a ton of candy.

Fight with siblings or bug bite??.... Bug bite. Sigh!

Caleb stood on the stairs, almost posing, for so long I finally took a picture.
