Ready or Not... comes Baby #3! After having an early miscarriage in November, we waited until the holidays were over, then decided whenever it happened, we would be excited for another little one to join the family. The last week of February, we found out we were expecting #3 the first week of November around Election Day!
 Mid-April we had our first official Dr. visit when I was 10 weeks. I had gone in 2 weeks previous with some pain and lots of stress because after a miscarriage just a few months earlier, I was completely paranoid of something going wrong again. So they did a short ultrasound that day and everything checked out fine (I was also relieved it was just one baby because I had been starting to show so early I was slightly worried it might be twins). They did another ultrasound at the 10 week appointment and here is our little munchkin upside down. :)
April was another month of being sick, hence the reason I didn't take many pictures or post about the happenings. Luckily, after my appointment, I did my pregnancy labs and they found yet another UTI. Once I finished the antibiotics I started feeling much better!
We are so excited to add another sweet baby to our family!

Easter 2012

For Easter this year we decided to make a quick trip to Grandpa & Grandma's house and enjoy the holiday with family. The Easter Bunny came Friday night so everyone could enjoy their baskets Saturday!
The kids were way excited about their new buckets that had new DVDs and a few other fun play things and of course everyone enjoyed the candy (after breakfast of course)!
 Later that day we colored Easter eggs. Lexie was being silly and didn't want her picture taken so this was the best shot I got of coloring eggs.
 We took a drive up to white sands to roll the eggs, but a huge family just got to the main area of white sands and we had to just find a smaller side hill to do our Easter Egg Roll. Hoyt was more interested in the 4-wheeler than the eggs. 
 Lexie had a fun time rolling the eggs and playing in the sand! 
 I think the eggs were thrown more than rolled, but everyone had fun!
Hoyt had a great time exploring!
 Easter Sunday we went to church and the kids were not happy or cooperating so this is the best picture I got of them in their church clothes. After church and dinner we traveled the long round about way home (we can't wait for them to get the road finished so we can get to Grandpa & Grandma's house a lot faster)! 
We are so grateful for Easter and the time it gives us to reflect on our Savior, the Atonement and especially His Resurrection and the knowledge we have that we can all live again. One activity we did with the kids this year was make "Resurrection Rolls". Lexie still talks about that and I know she learned a lot from that small activity. It was a great weekend!
