4th of July

This has been a very different year for us with me not being very physically able. That being said I am here sitting at work 37 weeks and 2 days pregnant with twins so it has been worth it. We are usually go go go but I have been so good at resting and Kade has been so good at taking care of things so that I will rest. The kids have been amazing and very understanding they are awesome and so loving. For the 4th of July we took them to the firework stand just down the street and they did some of the little rides that were there and then bought some fireworks. We had dinner and then we lite fireworks and watched all the fireworks from our house. Our house is not ideal in fact its a very stressful thing for us however the location is amazing and we are next to every thing. We were able to see 5 or 6 firework shows and we just sat in our driveway. As you can tell we were already in our pj's for the night. The kids were great and we were so lucky that Kade had the day off, last year he was working in California and we missed having him on one of our favorite holidays. I love the 4th of July, it is my 2nd favorite holiday :) The first coming soon HALLOWEEN!!!

Mom and Scott's Wedding

 My mom and Scott got married this summer. They had a beautiful wedding and it was so much fun to be a part of it. My mom had Mia walk her down the aisle and Mia took it very seriously, it was pretty cute. Ryan also married them which was really fun. We had a great time in their beautiful backyard watching them get married, then we had lunch inside. We are so happy for you mom and we love you Scott! 


I made it to 36 weeks!!!!!! From the moment I found out I was having twins the doctor told me his goal was to get me to 36 weeks and today I have made it, without bed rest. We are incredibly blessed to have made it this far and the fact that I am still working is pretty amazing. It has been hard and limiting myself and listening to my body has been a challenge but I have done it, the hardest part is not being able to stand more than about 10 minutes at a time. I am so grateful for my amazing husband who has done everything for me and has worked so hard at work as well. We are getting pretty excited to meet these little babies. Brooks has now named them Lightning and Matter, Mia has named them Hansel and Gretel or if its two girls Belle and Aurora. Brooks refuses to think they are anything but two boys and Mia is okay with the idea of a boy and a girl and two girls but not two boys for sure. They are so funny. I guess we will see how long I actually do make it but I am feeling so good about making it to this point. Thanks to everyone that has brought meals and helped me in so many ways, I know the next year is going to be the same way and I am learning to accept the help because I can't do it all myself :) We are so excited!!!
