FOOT\CALF cramps hit me I could hardly walk to a bench to sit down I had silent tears running down my checks all I wanted to do was cry on John's arm until the cramps went away. We decided to go home and come back when Payten was in bed and I had some rest. I get such horrible leg\feet\calf cramps when I'm pregnant that many nights I can't sleep because of a cramp. So wish me luck we still need to get a few more things for them here is to more cramps to come!!

Today Mom and Crystal needed to run to the store to pick up a few last minute items for our Thanksgiving dinner. I knew that the stores would be insane so I told Crystal that I would keep an eye on her kids for her. Last minute shopping is hard enough without kids in toe. I was making them some grilled cheese for lunch and happened to look out the kitchen window there on the trampoline was six happy beautiful children. I stooped what I was doing and looked at each one of them and it hit me that even though this has been one of the hardest years our family has ever had to endure we still have so much to be thankful for.
I am thankful for William, he is always such a big help with the younger children. He always makes sure that Jayden and Payten are taken care of that no one is mean to them.
I am thankful for Wayne, he always makes me laugh he tries so HARD at everything he does. He won the Kindergarten Turkey Trot this year at his school I was so proud of him.
I am thankful for Trey, he LOVES LOVES every holiday with a passion no matter how small the decorations he thinks they are all so pretty. He also takes care of Payten for me she is his best friend!
I am thankful for Jayden, she playes with my monster even though Payten is SOOOO mean to her. Jayden always gives me hugs and she loves to show me her pretty hair.
I am thankful for Kaitlen, she is such a big help with Payten. I love how she loves to learn and how excited she gets when it is library day. I love that she is almost eight and still hates to get her hair brushed.
I am thankful for Payten, she makes me smile a hundred times a day. I love her love for animals. Her concern for anyone that is hurt and her thirst for adventure. That baby is never at a loss for something to do.
As I stood at the window I thought of Miss Izzy and how sweet she is; she has brought so much joy to Amanda and John. I love seeing her grow and learn new things. Haven is also a sweet heart and has grown up so much over these last years. She is an awesome big sister and is SO excited for a baby brother. Sage was also on my mind I am thankful for him for allowing me to be his Aunt and for always having a smile on his face when I held him. I am thankful for his sweet spirit and the memories I will always have of him.

The next morning when I took out the girl's bobby pin's I was surprised to see that my beautiful little girl's had African American hair. We laughed and laughed especially over Kaitlen's hair.
I LOVE her eyes in this picture.
HAHAHA she was not happy with her results. As she put it Taylor Swift does not have this kind of hair.
Grandma had to beg her to let her take a picture.

Oh one more thing our baby is a GIRL!! The ultrasound tech having six girls of his own; did not want to tell John that the baby was a girl. John was a little disappointed but over all he was happy that SHE is healthy, he loved seeing her move around it was the longest ultrasound I had ever had nearly 45 minutes long. I just can't believe we are going to have 4 GIRLS how exciting.

Last Friday, John and I went to our first ultrasound it was exciting seeing our little baby moving around. Even Payten seemed to understand the excitement of seeing our new baby. John wanted me to make sure you all know it’s a BOY and no thoughts of a girl are allowed!
Last week when I was getting my blood work done I noticed that I was being checked for HIV that freaked me out. I don’t know why but I just kept on thinking what if I somehow got HIV from a nurse when I had Payten or a mosquitoe bite. So on Friday I was happy to learn I AM disease free. John of course thought I was being silly but to me it was a good news day!

we are loving her new hair cut!
Haven went home to Montana on July, 22 we all miss her a ton. She is doing well and is also looking forward to starting second grade in a few weeks. She seems to love Montana so that's where her Mom has decided to stay!
Payten is almost two she is a doll. I can't believe how much she has learned in the last few months. She is sooo much fun John and I laugh all the time over what she says and does.

We have decided that we need a change so with one month left in our lease we packed up all of our things and put them in storage except for some clothes and moved in with Mom and Dad for a few months. While John goes to Utah and finds some work and a place to live. I'm excited and looking forward to this new journey. Neither one of us have ever lived in Utah we are just hoping for the best and maybe some green grass.
That's it for us a new baby in the spring and moving to Utah, wish us luck!!!

However these last few weeks I have felt like there is something missing from my life I started to feel unhappy and cranky. Wishing that there was more to 'me' then mother and wife I have never felt this way before I LOVE being both a mother and a wife it's the only thing I have wanted to do. A few days ago it hit me why all a sudden I want more. In my silly books the women are doctors, lawyers, photo journalist they all have amazing careers and travel to France and the East Hampton for summer break; not to mention they are the best mothers ever.
I was laying in bed holding John's hand watching a movie with our three girls surrounding me and it hit me that this is were I want to be; not in the Hampton's or on a beach in France but here in my home on our bed with three of the most amazing little girls and a man that loves me.
I don't know why her stupid stories got to me but I do know that I love being a Mom and a wife that John works so hard for us at a job he hates.

I was so upset with her that I had to count to TEN a few times. I wanted to shake her, yell at her or just cry I was so upset with her. I'm hoping she didn't cause to much damage to my Sage plant.
