Family pictures 2008

So here are some of the better family picture that we got for this year. Thanks to my mom for doing them for us for free. It is amazing the more people you add the harder it is to get a picture with everyone looking at the camera and everyone looking half decent. The girls had a fun time going down by the river and throwing in rocks. We are so blessed to live in such a beautiful place.
Thank you so much mom for sharing your talents with us!!!

Well its that crazy time between Sunday and Monday when I am sitting at work trying to stay awake and pass the time. I am not really sure what to blog about tonight other than give a few updates on what we have been up to.
Lets see I must have jinxed myself when I wrote on Thursday morning. I little while after I had posted to my blog I started feeling crappy and ended up losing my dinner. The rest of the night at work didn't get much better, despite the medication that I was given I continued to get sick. I received a shot before I went home to go to bed but as the morning progressed it got worse. Each time I got up to do something for the girls I ended up in the bathroom with the dry heaves. I toughed it out till about lunch time and stuff was not looking good so I ended up calling my doctor and had to go in to his office for IV fluids and more zofran. Thankfully after that things started to get better for me, but on that same evening Shylo ended up miscarrying again for the 4th time. Which really sucks, but evidently heavenly father has something else planned for her and marcus. After seeing the specialist on Tuesday she found out that with her complications and medical issues she has an 80% chance of miscarrying any pregnancy she has, which is not the best odds. So at this point in time I think they are going to see what they can do to pursue the adoption ave. I just hope that everything turns out for them in the end.

Needless to say I didn't end up working Thursday night and most of Friday was spent recouping. We did however go out to the Georges and canned apple sauce for our food storage.

Saturday Danny and I had the opportunity to sing at a baptism, then that afternoon we had my mom do our family pictures. It gets hard the more kids you add, kylee did pretty good but trying to keep Alexis' attention and get her to look at the camera was next to impossible. I hope we had a few turn out, Danny may have to work his photo shop magic. I will post them as soon as I go through and look at them more closely.

Today, Sunday I had the opportunity to start my new calling as Miamaid advisor in the young women's, while still doing my old calling as ward chorister until they find a replacement. Which provides plenty of business during church. I hope I can fit into this new calling and help the young women of our ward.

Babies, babies and more babies.

Were to start..... as some of you know and some don't we are expecting our third baby in April. We are pretty excited, the morning sickness comes and goes but knock on wood it hasn't been as bad as it was the other 2. Well we just found out in the last couple of days that this new baby is going to be accompanied by 2 cousin in the months following its own arrival. Shylo (my younger sister) found out that she is due in June with her first baby and then we found out Sunday that Kaylynn (my older sister) is also expecting in June with her fifth baby. It is a crazy world!! My parents are going to go from having 6 grand kids to 9 in a matter of a few months. I just hope and pray that everything goes well and we end up with 3 healthy babies.

Kylee and Alex are excited about getting a new baby. Kylee is so cute and protective already, on a daily basis she asks me how me and the baby are doing, it is so cute. She also asks for us to feel better and be healthy when she prays. Kylee definitely also watches what I do and say, I have had a ton of heart burn with this pregnancy and I have commented and few times that even water gives me heartburn, so when Kylee sees me drinking water she says, "but mommy water gives you heartburn why are you drinking it?" You gotta love the way she watches out for us, I then have to explain to her that despite the heart burn that the water is healthy for me and the baby. I don't think Alex fully comprehends everything yet but she goes right along with what Kylee does, this baby will definitely be well watched out for. When asked whether she wants a sister or brother Ky says she wants a baby sister and she is going to name it Kylee, she is so silly. You have got to love little kids and there logic.

Kylee's Birthday Party

So here it is the infamous princess cake. It ended up turning out a lot better than I thought it would. I guess it just goes to show that stressing about stuff doesn't help anything at all. Kyle was so happy and excited she just kept giving me hugs and telling me how pretty her princess cake was. It definitely made it worth all the work and stress. Her party turned out really great, she got tons of princess stuff and all kinds of other things. Her grandpa told her it looked more like Christmas than it did a birthday.

She got princess dolls and clothes and even a princess dancing game from grandma and grandpa Jensen.

Here she is the most special princess of all, Kylee Jean.
Mom and Dad got her a dress up trunk so she could look like a princess everyday.
Needless to say her and Lex have worn the dresses every day and had to play the princess dancing game to boot.
Happy forth birthday bug, You are growing up way to fast. We love you to death, and love all the funny things you come up with on a daily basis you are an amazing angel!!

Family Home Evening

Well last Monday we took the opportunity to go with Danny's parents out to Aberdeen and pick potatoes for our winter storage. We figured it would be a great opportunity to let the girls play in the dirt and have a chance to see the tractors and trucks up close. They had a blast and it didn't take long for us to get plenty of spuds. It was interesting to see the way the two girls reacted to the new sites, Kylee was scared to death of the tractors, she was so afraid that they were going to come and run us over. She finally calmed down enough to get out of the truck and she even got a chance to sit in one of the diggers thanks to Great Uncle Kent, she thought that was pretty neat. Alexis on the other hand was so excited to see everything she jumped right out of the truck and started to help us find potatoes, she absolutely loved to be playing in the dirt Grandma George even got in on the fun. I will post the pictures as soon as I get them off of the camera. Thanks Grandma and Grandpa George and Great Grandma and Grandpa Rowbury for letting us come and have some farm fun with you, and thanks Foster Farms for the spuds.

Today is Kylee's birthday and I am so stressed about going home and making this princess cake,I just hope it will turn out half way decent. I hope I can get a little bit of sleep this morning so I will have full creative capacities this afternoon when I go to tackle this thing I will try to post the pictures from her party sometime later this week.

Happy Birthday Lexer Loo!!

Well Sunday was Alexis Marie's 2nd birthday. She had a blast we can't believe that she is growing up so fast. Here are a few pic from the birthday party.

She was so happy to get her princess jamies.

She had to show everyone her "monies" from Great Grandma and Grandpa Sandau

Making a wish, and blowing away, it took us 2 times of lighting the candles to get a pic.

This is her Elmo cake that she picked out and mommy made for her. (Not to bad we will just have to see how Kylee's turns out next week, she wants a princess cake.)

Finally getting to enjoy her Elmo cake and Ice cream.

Thanks everyone for coming to the party and for spoiling her rotten with all the gifts, she was so excited about all her new clothes and toys!! Family is the greatest. Stay tuned for next week when we see how big sister Kylee's cake and party turn out.
