Santa Claus

We went to mom and dad's ward Christmas party the other day and Maddie and Sammy got to see Santa. I was pretty sure they would both cry but they did pretty well. I think it was because Maddie saw all the other little kids coming away with a little bag of candy and wanted some too. Sammy only cooperated because her sister was right there.

Oh Christmas Tree!

Every year we go up and pick out a tree to cut down and bring home. This year we went up toone of dad's properties to cut it down. Here it is all decorated for the season.

It's GIRL #3

We had an ultrasound two days ago and found out we are having our third girl. I think Jeff was a tiny bit disappointed as was I that it wasn't a boy but we are excited and have been thinking of names already. We have a really tough time with girls names which is kind of a bit of a problem since that is all we have.

I HATE Needles!!

So unfortunately I spent the last two days in the hospital due to so infection in my gastro intestinal area that the doctors couldn't figure out what it was but I had to stay in bed and be hooked up to numerous monitors because my blood pressure was really low my heart rate was really high and I had an incredible temp. We did find out that baby #3 is fine though. They had to do a whole bunch of tests on me and eventually just figured that they couldn't figure out what was wrong so when things turned back to normal they gave me some prescriptions to treat the symptoms and sent me home so I am still having the whole load of problems that sent me to the ER and got me a ride in an ambulance but at least now I have a story and two arms that look like they belong to a Dalmatian instead of me. Maybe Ill post a picture. I lost count after thirteen on the times they had to poke me to draw blood. Oh well by the time I have this baby I'll be ready for the epidural. I'm really excited to be back home with my babies whom I missed a ton!! I am not really up to taking care of them much but at least I am with them. I also have a really great friend who took care of them while I was gone and then helped arrange people making our dinner for the next couple of days so I am okay with being home. I will finally sleep in my own bed and no one will be coming in to be dracula anymore! I am so grateful for my health (my normal health) while I was in the hospital I saw a lot of people who were a lot worse off than myself and who were always going to be that way so I am so grateful to be healthy!

Christmas Lights

This last weekend we were planning on going to the parade of lights in downtown with some good friends of ours but we ended up running late and didn't make it so instead we went to downtown Littleton and we ended up having a great time! It was so pretty. Madison loves horses and Christmas lights and got to see both. We also sat on Santa's lap and had hot chocolate. We LOVE the Christmas season!!!!
