The last couple months...

November thru April marks our busiest half of the year.  All of our birthdays and the major holidays fall in this time period.  I love the busyness of it and also love that May - October I can relax for the most part.  :)
November 3rd was Scott's birthday.  He turned 28!  So crazy!  What this really means though is that I'm turning 28 right around the corner...  Scott is such a hard worker and does so much for our family.  The kids and I love him so much and couldn't have asked for a better husband/father.
This week I am officially 36 weeks pregnant and bigger and more uncomfortable than ever!  This pregnancy has been extra hard on my body and I'm not really sure why.  I feel like an old woman all the time and I can hardly hobble around anymore.  I can't wait for this sweet baby girl to decide to make her debut!  I'm hoping she comes early, which is not likely if she follows after her other siblings.  A girl can dream though, right?
On December 16th Scott and I celebrated our 7year anniversary, crazy!  I can't believe how fast 7 years goes by.  It's been crazy and full of ups and downs but it's been wonderful.  My parents were kind enough to have the kids sleep over on Friday night and originally we were going to get a hotel in SLC but lets face it, I'm too big and pregnant to be any fun this year so we'll save that idea for a later date.  :)  We ended up going to dinner at our favorite place, Dock of The Bay, and then finished up some Christmas shopping.  It was a great evening with my handsome hubby.
Last Saturday it actually snowed enough that the kids got to go out and play in it!  That sounds a little strange for Utah I know but ever since we moved down here by Utah Lake we don't hardly get any snow and what we do get doesn't stay long.  We usually have no snow at our house and can drive 5 minutes to Lindon where my parents live to find that they have 8 inches.  Kinda crazy, but good.  Snow isn't my favorite anyway.  :)
 Yesterday was a busy day.  It was the last day of school for Canyon before Christmas Break and we got to go to his school's Christmas Sing and watch him perform 2 songs his class has been working on.  He did so good and I'm bummed I didn't get any pictures of him singing.  The place we decided to sit in the auditorium was the farthest away we could be from him of course.  Next year I'll choose something a little more central.
After his Christmas Sing we got to go to Savanna's preschool Christmas program.  She did great singing also and the big guy even showed up so all of the kids got to sit on his lap and tell him what they want for Christmas.
Last but not least, We got a new little cousin yesterday too!  Scott's sister, Alyssa gave birth to a cute little guy yesterday evening and we got to go to the hospital to visit.  The kids loved him and are now even more excited that we get a baby of our very own in the next few weeks.  AS AM I.  Please come soon little lady!
