New Home

This is our new home and we are finally getting settled in:)

Sam and E working in the yard.

Sam's cousins came by to see him.

I came into the kitchen when we were packing to move and found Sam...I think he was afraid he might get left behind:(

The move

This has been the craziest week!!!

This past weekend my parents came to help us move. E has been in the field non-stop trying to finish harvest, so he missed the move...lucky!! Mrs. Donna had been lining shelves and moving the kitchen and small items Thursday and Friday. Saturday afternoon my parents, Mrs. Donna, Blake, Laura, and I (and baby Sam:)) moved everything except for a few big items. E had just been taking off a few hours each night to sleep so he had been staying at the bottoms. Sunday night, he came in around midnight and couldn't believe everything we had done. He had some guys come today to move the big items so we are all moved in now!

Sam is adjusting well to his new home, he loves the back yard and we still have a great view of our pond. When we sold our house we didn't sell the pond so we can still go fishing and play with the ducks. He is starting to understand (I think...a little) that we are going to have two new babies. He will pat and kiss on my belly and say, "babies" and their cribs are up and he knows it is the babies' room. So all in all the move was a success, but I wouldn't advise any girls 6 months pregnant with twins and a husband who can't be there to try it:)

Saturday morning before the big move I had a baby shower. Laura had been wanting to have one for me, but I didn't know about a shower for the second baby??? or babies??? So, we kept it small and it turned out so nice! I have the best group of friends and I feel so blessed to have them in my lives...love you girls!!!

On to other news...

I had a doctor's appointment Monday and things are going pretty well. Dr. B did an ultrasound and they were moving like crazy! He wants to make sure each baby is getting the right amount of nutrition so he is going to do another ultrasound in 2 weeks. Please keep us in your prayers.

I don't have my computer working at the new house yet, but as soon as I do I will post some new pictures.

We had a great weekend. On top of Halloween festivities, and getting ready for babies, we are preparing to move! We bought the house next door, so we aren't moving far. My mom came and spent the weekend and helped us pack. We hope to move next weekend. We couldn't do it without our moms, they have been so much help!

Sam was a pirate this year and kept putting his finger out like a hook and saying, "Argh". We took him around to see some family and friends and everyone had so many sweet goodies for him.

Rusty always has a hat on and Sam always wants to wear it, so for Halloween Rusty got Sam his own hat.

Jac Jac even had Sam a pirate bag full of goodies.

Kohen was the cutest cowboy:)

We couldn't get a pic of Sam with his eye patch...this will have to do.
