McKenna and Mikinsee wearing their Christmas dresses...you two are beautiful!
I made them go out in the freezing cold for this picture...they were good sports!
Back inside....much better.
Baby Conner right after our family pictures....we tired him out.
Kinsee and mom.
All four kids...Conner wake up!
It is impossible to get a get a family picture where everyone is smiling...Conner quit crying and Sammy-what are you doing?!
Okay, Sammy, now you are smiling...but that's too big...just a normal smile
In between pictures...seriously?!!! Can't we just get this done?!
Somebody get Daniels glasses...Sammy is beating him up again.
That's better. Now everyone stay put!
Does it have to be so hard?!

This is right after Conner's blessing...what are they up to?
Of course...they are getting a balloon from the ceiling.
Em, you wanted to see these. We went to a Halloween Murder Mystery Party. Sam was suppose to dress up as a special effects artist.
I was suppose to dress like the lady from the Adam's family...I'm in the back (the short one).
Kinsee and Conner right before the Halloween Stake Party.
Casidee and Grant at the Halloween Stake Party.
I wanted to post Sam and P.J. and their facial decals....they wanted to scare kids at the Halloween party I guess.
The kids before the pary. Yes, Sammy is a shower (the balloons are suppose to be bubbles).
Here is a closer look.
Mikinsee was a witch.
Daniel was Indiana Jones (I had to make him dress up--he doesn't like Halloween).
Here is our baby boy.

A lot of things were going through my mind at this point...probably the main thing was "Let's get this over with!"
And about 2 1/2 hours later, at 10:41 a.m., he arrived. He is such a blessing. Thanks for all your prayers...I know that is why everything went so well.
Susan and Codee were there through the whole thing. Codee was a trooper-she didn't get grossed out at all. And Susan was amazing as always...telling me to breath through the pain and assuring me that I really could do it!
All of this work tuckered Sammy out. He loves his baby brother...and so far isn't showing any signs of jealousy. Did I just jinx myself?

so I could do this.
Words can't describe how grateful I am for my sister. She flew in a couple of days before our new baby arrived. She cooked and cleaned and played with the kids. She ran the kids to their various activities. Then when Conner and I got home from the hospital she took care of us both. She changed more messy diapers than I can count. She held Conner when Sammy needed my attention. I don't really know how I'll do it without her. Thank you, Emily, for missing work and flying out here to help me. Thank you....thank you....thank you.

I know her birthday was in April, but better late than never I guess. She had a webkinz party. We had games set up to win kinz-cash and a store to buy prizes with the money they won.
