Our Christmas started off with our traditional nativity scene it was so cool all 4 of my kids were in it. Bre was Mary Aynslee was the Baby Jesus, Riley was an angel and Dawson was a shepherd it was so cute.

Then Santa came and brought every thing they wanted I hope. Riley's best present was her Leapster.

Bre got a bunch of horse stuff her own grooming kit and helmet and then a wii game and ds game. It is so wierd she doesn't even like toys any more.

Dawson got a big gun and a bunch of other toys. He got way to much stuff but his is a lot cheaper.

here are my kids in there new Christmas outfits.

It just added them backwords again. But Our Christmas Miracle has arrived. Yea!!!!!! She came a day earlier than we planned but I guess you can't really plan these things right. So Aynslee Maisie Gray was born December 18th, 2008 at 12:24 she was 6 pounds 13 ounces and 19 inches long. She was so tiny and looks a lot like her sister Bre. Here is a picture of her and her Grandma.
The new mommy!!!

The big happy family I can't belive we have 4 kids.

The proud sisters

And the proud Daddy.
We love you baby. Thanks for all of your prayers and help. There are a ton of people that helped us. We love you all
Merry Christmas!!!!!

I didn't think we would have pictures of this this year. My kids start to cry if we even mention Santa or the Mall for that matter (because Santa is there). But it was a miracle they decided to be brave. We went and saw Santa and his real raindeer. If you will notice though one of our children is not in these pictures he was shivering in the corner scared to death. So maybe next year for him.

Gosh I sure hope only my really close friends and family look at this lovely picture of me I didn't want to post it but the sad part is this is the only picture I have of us at Thanksgiving. I don't even have one of the kids or the kids table. But for all of you who wanted to see how big I am here you go. We had a good Thanksgiving even though there wasn't really room in my stomach for food and the baby.
We are Thankful for a lot of things though this year.
1. We are so excited for the baby and we are thankful that so far she seems to be healthy and very happy in there it feels like there is a party going on in there most of the time.
2. We are thankful for our 3 other beautiful children. They make our life complete.
3. We are thankful that we got to go so many places this year in our tent trailer. We have had a fun year.
4. We are thankful for the Gospel and all that it does for us. And that we can pay our tithing because I really belive that is the only reason we have survived this year.
5. We are thankful to all of our friends and family.
I hope you all had a good Thanksgiving. Hopefully next time I blog it will be with baby pictures because I am done. I am scheduled for the 19th so I am almost there 2 1/2 weeks. I am a little scared which I always am before surgery but I am excited to get my body back. (Not really do we ever get it back)

Well Last week I had my last month appointment. I also had to take to wonderful glucose test. Then the next day they called me and said that it was off so I had to go in for a 4 HOUR glucose test. I was a little freaking out that has never happened to me before granted it wouldn't be the end of the world just the end of sugar which I shouldn't eat to much of anyways. So I went in yesterday and took the test I had to fast for 12 hours before then go take blood and see if they could give me the drink. Then they gave me the drink and I had to sit there for an hour then they took my blood again then I had to sit there again for another hour. Then they took my blood again then I had to sit there for another hour is that four times. Anyways after four times of getting my blood drawn and 4 hours of sitting there and 2 crocheted hats later I got to leave and eat I was freaking starving. Then today I called to get the results and YEA I passed so don't be alarmed anyone I am going to be just fine. Thanks for all of your calls and concern.

Isn't it amazing the last thing you feel when you are pregnant is Radiant. I haven't posted anything for a while because our fun summer is over and I haven't had anything to take a picture about. I am growning and growing though and I have no idea where the baby is going to go and I still have a long time left. The baby moves and moves so that is fun, but I am already uncomfortable which is not fun. I finally got a body pillow which has helped a lot but it is going to be a long few months though. Ok enough complaining we are all doing well other wise.

I keep reading every ones posts about their kids on their first day of school and feeling so guilty because I totally forgot to take a picture of Bre on her first day. Bre started school this week and I think she likes it. She is not a big talker but her teacher seems really nice and she has a ton of friends in her class this year which hasn't happened before. The first day of school when we walked up to her line there was a whole group of kids that came up to her and hugged her it was so cute and made me feel a lot better. Every day she plays with someone different so that is good. This is bad but it is nice having her back in school not only because I only have 2 then but it gives us a routine again which is helpful. Since I have been pregnant we just kind of lay around all day mainly because I am so tired so this forces us to get up and do something even though I go back to bed after I take her to school. Hopefully this will be a good year for her.

Here are some pictures of our new baby girl. The kids loved this picture because she had her hand in her mouth. We let the kids come with us to the ultrasound. They loved it.
Here is a picture of her face pretty cute if I do say so myself.
Supposedly from this picture you can tell that she is a girl I kind of see it because she pointed it out a few times but don't know if you will beable to see it.

We just got back from another camping trip up to Power House( my grandparents property in Idaho) we had a lot of fun. This might be the last one of the season which is sad but we have been able to go a lot of places this summer which was nice.

Brian and Kristynn came this time so the kids got to spend some good quality time with them and they loved it. Brian and Kristynn took them on rides on the 4 wheeler and played with them. They really got some good bonding time.

My Mom finally taught the kids how to play in the stream they have only ever thrown rocks in it and they loved it they were in it the rest of the time. It is so nice having a stream right there it is very relaxing to listen to at night.

They did a lot of horse back riding. Doug even got to go. They had a great time the kids love riding the horses.
I hate putting this picture on because it is so flattering of me but I wanted to show off one of mine and Doug's new hobbies. We are learning how to cook dutch oven this year and it has been a lot of fun this is me making some ribs we have made this 3 times now because it is so good.
