The Big NEWS!

Yes, that's right! It's a BOY!! It took a few hours for the initial shock to wear off since the last ultrasound proclaimed it to be a girl. We are very excited to welcome baby Lincoln into our home in just 4 short months!

It's our family tradition that we go out to eat after the ultrasound: Jason's pick if it is a boy, and my pick if it's a girl.
Brooklyn: Teryaki Chicken Bowls at Teryaki Stix in Rexburg
Diego: Burritos at Chipotle in East Lansing
Lincoln: Polish Dogs for lunch at Sam's Club in Athens

Just for the record, Brooklyn and I were so excited to eat chinese food that we WILL be eating at Super China as a secondary celebration for dinner tonight!

Brain Drian!

Well, I have had the occasional pregnancy brain drain in my day, but this week takes the cake! So, I was standing in the hallway at church in the middle of an impromptu Relief Society planning session when Jason said, "Hey, did you see Diego.. oh" and then turned around an walked the other way, to look for him since I was in a meeting (so I thought). Diego had just been walking in the hallway by me so I assumed he might have wandered into the classroom next to me where the choir was practicing for the Christmas program. I excused myself from the conversation and poked my head into the classroom to look around for Diego. I didn't see him in plain sight so I asked one of the young women if she had seen Diego come in there. Awaiting her reply, I did another scan of the room and and I found him... on MY hip. Yeah... too bad I noticed this AFTER I had made it clear to the choir that I didn't know where he was. I almost cried from laughing. I can see forgetting glasses on your head, but a child on your hip... REALLY!!
This is comical, but does give me some relief/hope that at least my subconscious mind knows what it's doing, and is tending to my responsibilities. Much less scary than REALLY forgetting him or losing my sweet and wonderful little guy! Just the thought makes my heart and mind cringe. I'll take the short term memory loss of picking him up any time!

Hey guys! This year we rocked the family theme costumes, which was a blast, so you all have to pretend to be surprised when we do the same thing next year! ( yes, we have a baby incredible costume for the new addition) Here are some of the highlights!

"Violet Incredible" rides the pony at the free carnival this year! She was holding on for dear life, and loving it!

"Dash" even got to ride (with a little assistance) . He was definitly more interested in petting the horse's mane than holding on to the saddle.

"Girls come on! Leave the saving of the world to the men? I don't think so!"

Father and son, saving the world one muscle flex at a time!

"The Dash likes!"

How was your Halloween?
