We had a such a great Halloween, it was fun to celebrate it all weekend long! Ella was Ariel and Carson was a Pirate. Poor Carson had to be pushed around in a wheelchair, but was so good and never complained. The kids had so much fun trick or treating and got so much candy going 2 nights in a row!

It's a Girl!!

I had my 20 week ultrasound on 10/20 and we are having a girl! We are all so excited!! I told the kids that I would bring them back either pink or blue balloons after my appointment. It was so cute to see their reaction when they saw the pink balloons. We can't wait to meet this sweet baby girl!

Carson's accident

Last Monday, while on a walk with the kids Carson fell out of the stroller and broke his leg! Such a horrible feeling to see your child in so much pain , and not knowing what is wrong. We rushed him to Cardon's childrens hospital, and after x-rays it was determined he has a spiral fracture of his right leg. He was in a splint for 3 days, and finally had his cast put on Thursday. Dr. Said he will probably have the cast for about 5 weeks. He has been such a strong little boy through it all! We have had so much support, help, and love from family and friends during this rough time. We are so blessed to have such a supportive family!!

Ella Turns 5!!

My sweet Ella turned 5 on Thursday. I can't even believe she is this old! I remember just like it was yesterday getting the wonderful surprise that we were expecting. What a joy she is in our lives! She makes everyday brighter! Words could never express how much I love her. We had such a fun filled day celebrating her birthday. In the morning, we met Grammie at San Tan Mall (Ella's choice) and I let her go to the Disney store and pick one thing out she really wanted. She ended up with a Toy story 3 character set! We then made our usual pretzel stop , did a little shopping, and went to Dairy Queen for some ice cream. We had a party with family at Mother Nature's Farm , she decided she wanted a Halloween party so we decided it would be fun to have it there! We all had such a fun night celebrating with family. Thank you all so much for coming and for all the wonderful gifts for Ella. Happy 5th birthday to my sweet little girl!

First Fishing Trip

We went on our first family fishing trip this past Saturday. A big thank you to Uncle Ryan for taking us to a great place and sharing all of his fishing gear with us! Carson and Ella both caught 3 fish each including a 12 inch bass! They were so excited! What a fun way to spend a Saturday! We all can't wait to go again!
