Much Needed Update

The biggest news we have to share is . . . We are having a BOY!!! It was a bit of a shock at first, but we are all excited and anxious to see how life will change. I hear from everyone how different boys are so I feel a little like I am starting over with all the unknown. Pretty Crazy.

Here are some of the fun things we have been doing lately.

I took the girls on a last minute trip to Niagra Falls. We went to the aquarium and then over to the falls. We didn't stay long, but will definitely be going back to really explore. I am just amazed at how much water goes over those falls.

We were able to go to the Hill Cumorah Pageant this year. We had a lot of fun. We met some of our good friends, the Connors there. It was so fun to see them. As soon as the pageant started, Savannah was hooked. I think I had more fun watching her watch it then the pageant itself. She clapped and cheered even when no one else was.

Savannah was able to reconnect with her good friend Ammon Connors. They are only a couple of months apart in age. They haven't seen each other in two years, but became fast friends again.

I finally finished the curtains for the girl's room. There is another window so I made a total of 4 panels. Each panel has eight flowers on it. I am so happy with how they turned out. Every time I pass their room they make me smile. I love when projects turn out that way.

Here is a closeup of the stitching around each flower. It took longer than I thought, but it was just too cute to do it differently.
