Hi everyone! I don't have too much to say, nothing much is really going on. Adam finished the toy room, I'll try to get a picture of it posted, it's really cute. And in celebration of finishing the toyroom we're moving!! Adam is tired of sitting in traffic for hours just to get into or out of the valley, so we moving! He has been going crazy doing little projects that we've meant to do since moving in. He is building a new deck, finishing baseboards, touch up paint, etc. It wouldn't be a pregnancy if we weren't moving! This should be it for us though. We are so tired of the stress it puts on everyone, this move was inevitable though. It was either now or in the next 3 yrs, so why not now! We love our house and neighborhood, but I want to see my husband at night!
Adam got into a university in the east somewhere and the university of utah so he'll be able to finish his classes online. Weber isn't offering anything that he needs this coming semester so he got permission to go to another university. He is working hard, as usual, and is always going faster than the speed of light (I think he might be Superman!) until he drops into bed and passes out instantly! Me on the other hand, I toss and turn and can't turn my brain off until about 5 am! I think about the dumbest, most insignifigant things too! Where would I put the couches if we got this house? I wonder how fast the house will sell? What should I eat for breakfast? I mean come on now! Sleep!!
We can't wait to school to start (Ty and I) the kids are getting restless and bratty. I think turning 8 translates to 8titude! Ty has been snotty and such a back talker ever since he turned 8! I keep threatening to put a backpack on him backwards and put at least ten lbs in it and make him wear it all day! He is always giving me a hard time when I sit down, or ask him to get something for me! I keep trying to explain that this thing under my shirt isn't a beach ball! It's heavy! And Logan thinks that the baby needs stairs to come out! I don't know what he is picturing! Every time I go to the doctor he asks me if they are going to take the baby out, if it were only that simple! He has been quite the little whiner lately! I feel bad that he won't get to attend preschool this year, he is so ready to get out there. I've been doing some computer programs w/him but it's just not the same as going off to school, we can't enroll him though because we just don't know when we'll move and preschool isn't free! I've just got to pin myself down to a schedule and get some crafts going for him to do.
Ava is doing great, she is so much fun. If I had known how much fun a girl would be I would have had more!! She is so girlie too, I just hope that lasts. She has to have about 10 different toys sleep w/her everynight before she will even get in bed! And she already has a shoe fetish that rivals mine! We have to avoid going anywhere near shoes at the store or it will be a major melt down! And she has this horrible high pitched scream that pierces your ears, but I think that it's adorable because it's so girlie! Not that I go out of my way to HEAR the scream but I can't help but laugh wnen I hear it! She loves to dance and sing and everything is either "tute" (cute) or "eeeeeeeewwwwwwwwwww" which needs no translation!
We are all doing great, hopefully things move smoothly and quickly for us, I'm not very patient and waiting when there is so much to do is just torturous for me! Hope you are all doing great.

New Bloggers

We thought that we should get w/the times and start our own blog. I am not entirely computer literate so this will take me awhile to get started! I guess I'll start w/what is new w/everyone.

Adam is still going to school at Weber State but is closing in on the end! Just 5 classes left. He is still working as a Superintendent w/KBR Construction and still loves it. He has done tons of work on the house and is always looking for new projects to start. He recently built a playroom for the kids, complete w/little door and windows. He has been doing tons w/the kids this summer which thrills me, the kids are all turning into Daddy's kids! I love it.

I have been trying to keep busy, hoping that this pregnancy will go by faster if I do. I babysit two days a week and am trying to keep up w/the housework. I take the kids swimming a lot and as a result we are all getting really tan! Adam got me a new beach cruiser bike and I love it! We take the kids on lots of bike rides. I'm sure I look ridiculous w/my big tummy on my little bike, but whatever, I don't care! I'm about 28 weeks along now w/our third little boy (fourth baby). This one has been much harder than any of the others, I'm older and well, my abs just aren't supporting this one, so he just rests on my pelvis. OUCH! Things are going well w/the pregnancy though, so I shouldn't complain.

Tyler is a soccer freak, he loves to play. We decorated his room in all soccer stuff and I made him a duvet cover that has soccer balls all over it. He has had such a great summer, he has tons of friends and plays all day long. He got baptized this June and has been really cute about trying to be a better big brother. Even though he is already a great one.

Logan is great, he loves anything to do w/cars. He loves to line them all up along the fireplace and talks to them, it's really cute. He also loves soccer but doesn't understand why everyone is trying to steal the ball! He is always asking Ty if he is his best friend, Ty always says, "well, you're my best brother!" Logan still loves to beat up on Ava, she is learning now that it is really fun to hit him w/her toys! Logan is also our animal fan, he is always falling asleep on our giant Lab and loves to kiss and cuddle him. Luckily Jake is very patient and just lays there trying to ignore him!

Ava is finally developing a personality! She loves shoes and dresses. She loves stuffed animal and calls all of her toys, her babies! She loves her big brother Ty and gives him hugs and kisses all day long. She also loves her one and only Barbie, they dance around the living room together and Ava sings. I love having a girl, they are so different then boys.

Well that's about all that's going on here. I can't think of anything big to report. We love and miss you all.
