So I had my next ultrasound and it was so much fun to get another peek at our next baby.

Jared was able to make it this time, and the heart chambers and facial features look fine according to the radioligist. Big praises right?!

This lil' booger had the cord wrapped all around his/her face so it was tricky to get a picture at all, but we went with what we got, and I'm smitten already. The "thing" in front of it's face here is the cord not boogers. She (the tech) kept making jokes about this.

Yep, that's our ultra bendy child with a foot in it's face. I wish I was half that bendy! HA!
NO, you can't see what the sex is here. But look at those lil' squirmers! I am still amazed after this many children at the detail in their lil' bodies along the way!

No peeking! I need the motivation of that surprise during labor!

Happy Thanksgiving from our home to yours!


We have much to be thankful for this year!

God is so good!

I kept our our favorite for the Christmas card. You'll have to watch for that in the mail. Maybe you'll get it before Valentines day! HA!

Photos taken by my big sis of course! Check out her work!

Pictures compliments of:

Alexis Gabrielle,

You are beautiful inside and out and constantly amaze me with your insight and tuition.
You are strong yet sensitive, compassionate, yet unmoving, you are funny, but serious. You are a girl, yet turning into a young woman.
Listen to your Savior's call my sweet girl. He shall not fail you.
"His compassions they fail not, His mercies are new every morning, great is His faithfulfulness..."

Sisters Are Good For...

Hand holding...
Lending a hand...

Lots of laughing...

Being there for you when no one else can.
I hope these two are just as close as my sister and I are.
I love you Sarah!
