October 2011: Big month!!

October was full of surprises! First on the list was a house! We started looking for houses and found this one!! We put in an offer and it was accepted! It is a 3 bedroom 2 bath one story with a pool! It was supposed to only be a 30 day escrow, but it ended up being closer to 45 days, so we didn't end up moving in until the week before Christmas. We are still unpacking, a month later, and have been busy making it our home. Tim has done so much to fix, update, organize and set up our house! I don't know what I would do without him! We still have stuff to do, but we are really enjoying our new house!

The end of October we had some other exciting news!!!

and yes, I did take 2 because I didn't believe the first one! I was on the mini-pill and was still nursing Brayden when I got pregnant!! We knew we wanted to have more kids, but hadn't decided when we wanted to start trying, so God decided for us! ;) We were so excited! There is just something about knowing that this is God's timing for this baby, not just for our family, but for this baby's whole life. Psalm 139:16 "...all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be." This verse has taken on a whole new meaning to me. To know that each of us, including this tiny baby growing inside me, has a unique plan and is just so overwhelming to me. We are so thankful that God has given us this new little blessing!
I can't wait to meet him or her!

September=Birthday Month

Finally catching up on blogging!! Had to go all the way back to Septemeber, which has become birthday month for our house! First, was Brayden's first birthday with a basketball theme to celebrate Brayden's "rookie season". We had his party at the same park that we had Brooke's 1st birthday party! It was such a fun day!

Next, we celebrated my 29th! Tim and I went out to Davis for a fun date night!

good food and great company!

Then it was Brooke's turn! We had a princess party for her 3rd birthday (I know the princess theme is shocking) ;)

we had a princess table...

and a knights table...

which ended up being the dads' table :)

As much fun as September was, we all needed a few weeks to recover!
