Because we were in warm, sunny Arizona we had to take the opportunity to eat Thanksgiving dinner outside on the patio. Here are all the cousins digging into their turkey dinner while entertaining each other.
After dinner we went to a nearby park and feed the ducks their dinner of bread. This is the closest Brayden ever got to be to ducks.
On Black Friday the girls we able to escape being mommy and grandma for a few hours and go shopping in the morining. When we got back we were excited to see that they guys did a great job babysitting. Three of the four kids were asleep and they had even vacumed the house! We have some good men!
Later that night we visited the Mesa temple and watched the Christmas lights go on. It was a little croweded but fun. The Mesa temple is beautiful!

Brayden had a blast. He was a real Van Gogh!
He concentrated on painting his pumpkin for almost a whole hour (that's a long time for a little boy).
After his pumpkin was covered in paint, as well as most of Brayden, we had to let him paint a picture until he finally decided he was finished. Caleb and I had a lot of fun watching Brayden enjoying himself. I swear we could just sit all day and watch him He is sooo fun!
Here is our finished products. They almost look professional :)

Yesterday we went for my ultra-sound. I was so excited to prove to Caleb that it was a girl, but I was definatly wrong. We are having another boy! I really didn't care too much what we had, as long as it was healthy. Well he looks to be healthy, and is very active. He was jumping around the whole time! Caleb says he hopes it doesn't reflect his personality because we were so lucky that Brayden was such a mellow baby.
Seeing him in my belly makes it so much more real. I don't feel old enough to have two kids! My due date is still February 26. It's coming up fast! And we have a lot to do to get ready for our new addition to the family. First thing we need to do is throw out all the girl names (I was convinced it was a girl because I am carrying him so different compared to Brayden) and find him a boy's name that both Caleb and I like. As many of you know it takes us a long time to decide on a name. But I guess we still have four more months :)
Brayden is still clue-less. We keep trying to tell him that there is a baby in mommy's tummy but all he does is look at my tummy then point to his. Poor kid doesn't understand he's going to have to share mom and dad soon. I just hope and pray that he will adjust well. As soon as he does adjust and his little brother is old enough I know that they are going to have a blast together.
We are so excited for the new addition to come to our family!

We built some very sturdy shelves. Got rid of some junk, and organized the rest of the stuff. When we were done we were able to park both cars in the garage (New Concept!). But we were unable to keep both cars in there for long because Caleb's brother Jon needed some place to store his new snowmobile for a couple of weeks. Talk about good timing on Jon's part :)

Brayden loves to give kisses.

On Saturday we went to my cousin Linsey's wedding in Utah. From Utah we went to Hagerman (a small town in between Twin Falls and Boise) where we spent the night at Caleb's brother's house and met up with Caleb's parents. We drove up to Washington with them. It was so nice because Brayden loved driving in Grandpa's big "BRRMBRRM"/ truck, and it saved us A LOT of money in gas. It was a long drive but Brayden did awesome. He loved sitting next to Grandma and watching his animal movie over and over. We got to Sara's house (Caleb's sister) late on Sunday night. The next day we got some supplies and went to Ross Lake camping for a few days. Ross Lake is a lake Caleb's family always camped at when Caleb was younger. It is beautiful, and Caleb has always wanted to take me there.
We came home Monday...

Some other news... I decided to quit my job at Sylvan. I wasn't getting the hours I needed. I am still not quite sure what I am going to do yet. I am thinking of either substitute teaching (not a fun job but good money), working at Convergyce from home (againg not a fun job but I get to stay home and pretty good money), babysitting (not the funnest idea but at least I get to be with Brayden), or working at the daycare center at Gold's Gym (not a lot of money but I get to be with Brayden). It is kind of frusterating becuase all I really want to do is be a full time mom to my adorable little boy, but hey somebody has to pay off my student loans. I'll keep you updated on what I decide to do.
Anyways that is about all that is going on around here...I'll post more later. Love ya' all and hope all is well.
I am now about eleven weeks along. Yesterday I finally came to fully believe that I am pregnant after I went to the doctor and got to hear the heart beat. I knew all along that I was pregnant. I guess that I have just been in a state of shock because it was such a surprise for us. It took us so long to get Brayden that I just figured we would be in the same boat for the rest of our kids. But I guess the Lord thought that Brayden needed a little sibling before he gets any more spoiled. The baby is due sometime in February.
