Where Oh Where Have we been?

It has been a long time since I have actually made time to document our little lives... I haven't felt up to it because......

Dun dun na NAAAAAA...

Our Grande Finale is on the way... Baby #4!!!

We are thrilled... (feeling awesome would be a bonus, but we can't have everything... can we?)

No extra drug help... just a happy little surprise... Maybe my body figured this whole thing out? We are Due in January. The Doc says the 10th but I am not making this one come any earlier, because I want to try and not have a c-section... My easiest delivery was Ry and she was 7 days late...

So other than cooking a baby in my belly, we have been up to a ton of other stuff.....
We have managed to, in no special order:
*Gone to Seven-Eight Peaks(what Gator calls it) on our Pass of all Passes...
*Had our 11th wedding Anniversary
*Went to dinner Theater with friends
*Spent time in the sprinkle
*nearly been blown away by the winds this summer
*Daddy and Nic have expanded the shop! So stressful!!!!! but neat to see Copper Canyon growing.
*Daddy biked his booty off riding 100 miles at the MS ride!!! We are so proud of him and all that he has done to improve his health... Now, if mommy can just do the same we will be sitting pretty. I can't actually diet, but I plan on improving my eating(when I finally can keep something down) and getting some walking in...
*played outside out front... Gator's most favorite thing to do.
*Been Camping with the Amazing Newtons..(see below, Or above..)
*Cleaned some(tried not to)
*played with Heart friends on play dates
*The two older kids went to Camp Hawkins for the first time! Had a complete Blast...
*Ry went on a baptism prep date with Daddy and will be continuing them through out the summer till her Birthday.
*We finally explored City Creek Shopping
*Been to Girlies Camp/Retreat for testimony night! We are so lucky to have some amazing girlies in our ward.
*Still working on piano lessons and getting better every day
*Spending time with our family as my little sister preps for her LDS mission... to Santa Rosa, Ca! She did a great job on her speaking assignment in church last Sunday! GO PRESLEE!
*Had an adventure day-o-fun with Averee and Kallie (sorry I slaughtered your name spelling.) My baby sister and sweet cousin...

I am sure I am missing something... MEHHH! My brain just doesn't work great... If so, I would have pictures of each event and each event would be documented alone.... However... Some events will be redone so that I can go into more details and I do have some pictures... They just weren't taken by me.... So I will need to collect them and then publish them here....

It does feel nice to have this nearly finished...

Individually-
Ry is playing hard this summer.... I am sure she is growing an inch a month... She is so fun to have and is my huge helper... She has a list of things to do and she gets them done... Love her.

Gator is doing so well health wise. We haven't even hardly has a cold since his Fontan. He is growing some, still a little guy... He needs a bunch of work done on his teeth.... ewww! He needs like 5 crowns and a couple of extractions, and 3 ish cavities filled...Looks like his bottle/meds/oxygen days are catching up to him. He loves playing outside. He asks so many times a day if he can go out and play... Then is totally bummed if no one else is around to play... That happens a lot until about 5:30 when everyone gets home and the circle fills with the families to play with.... I love our circle...

Munchie plays so hard everyday. She sings songs, runs around with the big kids, and looks like nobody ever takes care of her 99% of the day. I can't figure it out... we will get her dressed and hair done 3 to 4 times a day and still she looks like a orphan child. Oh well!

Okay that's us!!
