We are having a...



A baby who likes to suck their thumb!




We were a little worried that Emily was going to be upset because she has been very adamant that it was a girl. So we had the kids unwrap a present that had the ultrasound picture in it, a baby doll dressed in blue, and some blue booties. Even with all the blue it still took them a minute to figure it out. Emily seemed to care more about the "boy doll" than anything else. We'll just have to see if she really understands. The boys were very happy with the idea of another brother. Lonnie and I are just happy that He looks healthy and that Emily did not react negatively to the news of a little brother coming her way!

Time Out for Women

Friday and Saturday I was able to take off and attend Time out for Women in Nashville with some of my Kentucky Girls. We went down Friday night and attended an evening session then stayed over for a wonderful day on Saturday. Many messages were given that uplifted and strengthened me... one of the more memorable messages was that "the gospel of Jesus Christ is not insurance against pain, it is resource in event of pain. (Carlfred Broderick-Uses of Adversity) A lot of wonderful music was to be had by one of my favorite artists Hilary Weeks. She made me cry more than once. It was a wonderful and uplifting time. Now I face a new week and I hope to be able to remember the emotions and appreciation for my role as a mother that I felt this weekend. To all you mothers out there remember-- Believe in what you are doing, Believe in Who you are!
Love ,
Angel

Precious moments

A couple of weeks ago we took a little drive to Cincinnati to take Gma & Gpa Quigley and the kids to the aquarium there. On the way down there were lots of are we there yets and he's buggin' me. But this was a one of those rare moments of peace and contentment between these very busy kids. I couldn't resist snapping a photo to remember it by, so I thought you might enjoy the sweetness of the moment as well.

Halloween Kiddos!





In all of the craziness of the weekend I am just now getting these photos put up we had some cute little kiddos though, don't ya think? We had two nights of fun with a Trunk or Treat and Chili dinner on Thursday and then  perusing the neighborhood Friday, all in all we ended up with way too much candy. But the kids had a great time! oh yeah just in case you can't tell we had an Anakin Skywalker-Indiana Jones-and a Lion.
