Lately with the uncertainty of our economy and so many friends, families and acquaintances in such trying circumstances I have been thinking a lot lately about how GRATEFUL I am for my many blessings... Thomas S. Monson said, "Our realization of what is most important in life goes hand in hand with gratitude for our blessings..." I often find myself questioning or comparing our situation against others and less often take the time to realize my blessings... I have been blessed with an amazing husband that works so hard, two & a half healthy adorable little red heads, a successful and loving marriage, amazing friends and family that never cease to amaze me with their little notes, phone calls and or gifts in the mail, the true Gospel, a beautiful and warm home, great health, the ability to concive and carry a child... I could go on forever... I think it's so imporatant to stop and take time to evaluate what we have been given & our family has truly been blessed.

For those of you wondering, ( I have refused to put one of those baby tickers on my blog -- who wants the constant reminder of how much longer they are still going to be pregnant?? Not Me! )
Alas, I am due in 26 days! Not that I'm anxious!!

Also, here is a picture of the progress I have made on the Nursery...
Pretty sad huh??

I think I need to get my butt into gear and start thinking about getting this ready! It's so different decorating and preparing for a baby when you have no idea what your having! I want to make it masculine enough for a boy, but not too much if it's a girl... Ahh! At least we have finally decided on one boy and one girl name...

Initially Tyler thought not knowing the sex of the baby would slow my baby shopping down and save him some money....Which it did for a while.. Now, 4 weeks out I have started to panic that I wouldn't have anything ready for the baby and he now realizes his plan is backfiring as I am now buying everything for a boy & a girl! :)

Our new favorite TREAT!

I just thought this picture was so cute! I remember my Dad always making us milk-shakes on Sunday growing up.... Tyler has been teaching the kids how to make smoothies for Mommy on Sunday nights!

Monster Jam!

We took the kids to Monster Jam! It's amazing the things you will do for your kids happiness! Boston was in HEAVEN and has not stopped talking about his "Donkey Kong" since we left the show! I have to admit it was quite entertaining!

Bryn 1/2 Birthday!

No, we generally don't celebrate 1/2 birthdays around here but Brooklyn has a summer Birthday and has never been able to celebrate with her friends at Montessori.... So this year we decided to celebrate her 1/2 Birthday.. It was so sweet! Circling the sun & Hello Kitty cupcakes.. What more could a girl want?

For the Grandmas!

I know I am so terrible at posting lately... Life just seems to be so busy and I'm sure it's not going to slow down anytime soon... Here are a few pictures of what we have been up to...

Brooklyn has been enjoying her ballet and tap class with Cousin Allison!

We had a night out as a family at one of my favorite childhood spots! We ate at the Trail Dust in South Denver and did a little dancing, a little playing & a lot of eating!

More updates to come! We have a very busy weekend coming up... Brooklyn's 1/2 Birthday celebration at Montessori, the kids virgin ski adventure and a crazy trip to the Monster Jam! Hope everyone is doing well! Hugs! a
