Jan 2012

So I am going to be better this year with the blog. Life is very crazy with four little girls!
I thought I would write a little about each one of them....


Alyvia Anne is going to be two in March. I have to admit that two is not my favorite age, but she is a pretty good girl. She LOVES her sisters. She really wants to be big like them. She still loves her blankie and thumb and we know that there is much dental work ahead for her:) She loves Barney and dancing around. My favorite thing about her is that every time I go to lay her down we say to each other I love you sooooo much! We are so grateful for this sweet girl and the joy she brings to our family.
Can you tell that these two are best friends? they seriously love each other. They do fight like any normal siblings, but they play way more than they fight. Ava is little miss personality.
She is in Kindergarten and is loving school and dance. She thinks she is a teenager and can remember and recite back anything that anyone says.....we have to be careful. She is a little mom and helper. She will do anything to help when I ask her. She LOVES to get a reaction from anyone that is around her good or bad. So that can be fun at times;) But without Ava I have to admit that life would be pretty dull so we are going to keep her around!
Oh our Faify. She is the sweet caring loving and yet emotional addition to our family. She is so nice to everyone around her. She really wants to be a good girl, but when she wants her way she can be pretty stubborn. She LOVES candy and yogurt! Faith has some OCD she gets obsessed with things and for weeks wont go any where with out that item. She is a daddy's girl and she has him wrapped!
Last but for sure not least is our sweet and chubby Summer Joy. That is exactly what Summer is pure Joy! I have loved every sec of her. I can tell she is going to fit right in with the girls because she is the happiest when she is around all of their pure chaos! I am excited for her to grow and to start to see her personality. She sleeps through the night and there is no better gift to mom and dad than that!

Its another:)

So baby number four is a GIRL! yes we love girls at our house:) and I guess the lord knows that because he keeps them comin! I have had some neat spiritual experiences with this little ones name. It's been really neat for me because I didn't know if it was a girl, but I just felt so close to this name and so I always thought it was a girl. One day I will write the whole story but for now the name that she will be called is Summer Joy! so little Summer we are sooo excited for you to come!

Protected and Grateful





The other night around nine pm I was driving to workout. Long story short I thought this guy was turning into the same place as me as he was in the far right lane with his blinker on. So I started to turn thinking I would just follow him. Last min he turns his blinker off gets in the far left lane (at that time I was in that lane) and I tried to move by going right he went left and we hit head on. He was in a huge Dodge pick up and was going over 50. It was a hard hit. I thought at first I was seriously hurt I kept on blacking out. Once I realized what had happened I immediately started screaming that I was 18 weeks pregnant and to please make sure the baby was ok. I couldn't unlock my door because it was jammed shut. I also could not really move my left side at all. Once I was put on the stretcher and in the ambulance I just wanted Nate. I also was so scared for the baby. I kept on saying please make sure the baby is ok. One of my worst fears is to be in an accident pregnant. I was in a lot of pain. After a few hours and a blessing from Nate everything looked ok with me and the baby. I bruised most of my body. Especially where the seat belt was. I almost have felt like I have just had a c-section but I am still pregnant. It's not been the best few days. But I am so grateful to be alive and that my baby is ok . It really scared me because for weeks now I have been randomly saying to Nate that I thought I was going to die in a car accident. I don't know why I was saying this but I just kept on having a feeling that something bad was going to happen to me in a car. So maybe I brought this upon my self.(Stupid to even think this) But it really freaked me out when it happened. I am so grateful for my family and my girls and to not have serious injury's. I have been in two bad accidents now in a Honda Oddesey and I am convinced that this car has saved my life. It has amazing saftey features and I will continue driving one for a while. If any of you have kids in carseats I would highly recommend this van it is amazing! ugh but I will not be taking life for granted. I know that the lord protected me and my baby that night and I am so grateful he did.

Day at the Beach!





On Tues we took the girls to Lajolla Beach.(spelling?) It was so nice to be on the beach I can't even express it enough! and this beach is beautiful. It was so fun to watch the girls play. Later that night I took Ava and her new little friend Kailey to Justin Beiber. They loved it. We were the only ones in the theater and they danced in the isle every time a song came on. Ava turned to me and said, "Mom when I turn 7 will you take me to Justin Bieber concert with Annie?" it was cute. Than that night they got feathers in their hair they loved them! it was a fun day:)

Day 2 well it was actually day 4:)





On Monday we took the kids to a children's museum. It was really cute and had lots for the kids to do. Then we went shopping and out to eat. By the end of this day we were beat. Four kids under four is a little exhausting:) but they had fun.

Day 1 San Diego!



So my friend Lauren calls me up and says, "I have got to get out of the weather do you want to go with me to my parents and visit San Diego?" Warm weather? a time to get away and play with my girls?......YES! we literally hoped in the car with our kids and left for a week. We stopped and ate at her favorite places this breakfast place was deli-sh! more pics and days to come......

My Faify is 3



Oh my Faify! Faith turned 3 and I never posted about her. For any of you that know this girl know how dang cute she is. She is so funny and fun. She is spunky and crazy. She is also always getting hurt:) she doesn't think very much before she acts. She is emotional and is very in touch with her feelings. She is sweet to others. She Loves her sisters but I think her two favorite people are my mom and her dad. She loves Nate. It is soo cute. Faith knows what she wants and I know that she was to come to our family when she did for a reason. Faith I love you you bring pure sunshine into my life.
