Thank You

I just want to say thank you to my husband and to everyone who has been so concerned over my health lately.  This pregnancy has been a rough road these past few weeks.  Ryan has been amazing!  He's Mr. Mom, Mr. Dad, Mr. Nurse and so much more.  Today he took me to the hospital and I was given fluids for my dehydration and some nausea medication.  I truly hope that I can not only start to feel better, but start to enjoy this FINAL pregnancy.  

Thanks again for all of your concern - we (me and little fetus) will be okay~  Kimberly

Thank you Ryan - I know it's been hard for you but I love you   =0)

We were surprised too!  

It's time to share the news as I can no longer hide it.  My belly is growing and I have been so sick that people are beginning to worry.  Yes, it is true - baby number 4 will be arriving hopefully sometime before July 4, 2009!  

The kids are very excited while Nolan is already planning for bunk beds - he just knows it's going to be a baby brother.  

I guess we'll be needing a new license plate soon.  Any suggestions???

Haidyn Turns Three!

I can't believe our baby girl is 3!  Exactly one week after Nolan's birthday, we celebrate Haidyn's!  This year they each had small parties with their friends and then one Saturday we had my parents and Ryan's parents over for pizza to celebrate both their birthdays.  

Haidyn loves her new Dora bike from Papa Dennis & Gramma Jan.
My mom bought her an American Girl (Bitty Baby) with matching Christmas clothes - too cute!
And our little mastermind loves his new Erector Set!

Haidyn's Dora Party:  We had the party last Friday morning.  It was a Dora fiesta!  We had a small jumper, a pinata and for lunch we made tostadas.  It was lots of fun.  Here's Haidyn waiting for her friends to arrive for the party - she was having a hard time being patient.
Haidyn's famous tongue - so purty!

Every year we carve pumpkins the day before Halloween - which is Nolan's birthday!

Halloween night was fun!  We went over to the Dyers' house for dinner with our Allaire Circle Family and then off we went to find the candy.  This was Haidyn's first year where she really understood what was going on.  She loved it!  After every house she would ask, "Mommy, can I go trick-or-treating again?"  She wanted to be assured that this venture would never end!
  Of course it did and she was thrilled with her loot!  

When we got home we had a ton of candy to hand out to other trick-or-treaters.  So, Ashlee and Nolan plopped themselves on the front porch and took over the task - it was great!  

Backed Up Blog...

I am so behind on blogging!  I don't know where to begin and there is so much I will have to just leave out - I can't find the time these days.  I will start with the Piano Recital.

Ashlee has been in piano now for about 3 years.  This was her first recital.  We were all so nervous for her.  Papa Dennis, Grandma Carolyn and Papa Larry came to support the kids too.  Here is a little clip of one of the songs she played.  She did great and recovered from her little mishap marvelously!  (notice no music, she played by memory)

Nolan has been in piano for about 3 months now.  He is learning fast and seems to really enjoy it. I was so proud of him!  Nolan does not like to be in the spotlight (like his sister).  The fact that he not only got up there, but performed wonderfully is just amazing to me.  Our little man is maturing.  Unfortunately, Haidyn was being a handful during Nolan's performance so I don't have his recording on my camera.  Daddy did video the entire performance on our camcorder, but I have yet to figure out how to upload those files.  So here is a photo (of his back - sorry)
Miles, Nolan, Raelynn & Ashlee
Thanks Carrie, for teaching our kids to play piano and enriching our home with the sound of music!!!
