1 week to go, although in my brain I cant help but think any day now. This way of thinking has not been the best for me and this morning I decided to just let it go. The baby will come when she's ready. Now I just have to find some more things to do to keep busy. I have pretty much ran out of ideas for new bows for her hair, but knowing me, I'll be making them until the day she arrives.

This has been our little tradition these last 3 years living in Utah. We have had a lot of fun over the years. This year was a little different because I was 8 months pregnant, but all things consider, it went really well and we all had a great time. Sleeping in tents has never been my thing, but the memories made and being able to watch my kids love every minute was worth the trade.

Well I figure its about time I update my blog. A lot has happened since the last time I posted which was over a year ago. In that last post I posted about the previous year. Instead of playing to much catch up I'm going to post some pictures of the main happenings of our family over this last year and then just start fresh. I say main, but really it will be only a glimpse of our happenings. In a family there are countless activities and memories made that it would and will be difficult to pick them out specifically. But I need to do this and I need to start somewhere. I think it is such a great thing to do and I have too many precious memories to not. One of my best friends is such a faithful blogger and I love her posts and seeing her pictures of her sweet family. Its one way I still get to feel close to her as we live so far apart. So here it goes... I guess one of the biggest news is that we are expecting baby #5 August 21st which is in 2 weeks. We are so excited to meet our little girl! Its been so fun to see everyone of my children so excited over these months. Hallie always rubs my belly and kisses it. She finally gets her little sister she has always wanted. Ashton right now is excited, but I can tell he worried about his mom. He fasted for the first time on Sunday and prayed for both the baby and I. It of course meant so much to me. He often asks about the pain involved, what a sweet boy he is! Brody, you can just tell in face how excited he is and he loves hearing anything about the baby. He got to hear the heartbeat at my last appointment and thought it was pretty cool. With Brock I think he has finally realized that there is a baby in my tummy. I think setting up everything for the baby and all the new little clothes around helped him realize. I am always worried about the youngest child when the new baby comes. He has been my baby these last 3 years. I think he will do fine though, I just need to continue to give him that love and cuddles as much as I can when she comes. I love my Brocky!
