Thanksgiving photos...and our little secret.

Thanksgiving was a lot of fun for us. It was really nice to be with family and take a break from...here. We loved having Bret in our lives for a few days. The car ride was pretty hard-we carpooled and had 2 extra little ones, so I was very busy. Small children are demanding! It worked out though. Here are some photos of the cousins:

Tried to get one of all the kids in the car

Kissing the new baby

We got up at 3:30 am to go to black friday sales. I almost died from getting up that early, but we made off with some great Christmas gift deals... so I guess it was worth it...I guess.
We also got an ultrasound done by my brother in law while there. Yes, we are having baby #3! A few days after we got back we had the ultrasound from my clinic done and the due dates matched exactly-way to go Nathan! May 12! I am excited for another little baby, but it seems that lately the kids and I have been having a hard time with each other so I think in my head-What have I gotten myself into-how can I handle 3 small kids (when I can hardly handle 2 sometimes)?! I think it will be hard, but I know I will enjoy it too. We could have found out what we are having, but we decided to go with the other route this time. I think it will be fun.
That's all for now!

Wow congrats you two! I think May is such a great time to have a baby. I hope everything goes well and that you can feel good during your pregnancy! I'm glad you were able to see Dawn and Nathan for Thanksgiving too- looks like a fun time!

Lindsey and Isaac said...

Glad you guys had fun and got to see Bret for a few days. :) I am excited for that to happen with Isaac sometime next week. So, I am guessing it's going to be a boy. :) Maybe Asher and "he" will have the same birthday. (May 6)! Hope things go well, we're sad we aren't going to get to see you for Christmas!

Dawn said...

I'm glad Nathan got everything right. It means he does know something :) We had so much fun with you guys here. We have a couple of your things that got left (like Bret's shoes and socks). We will have to send them to you. I think I feel that way every time I get pregnant. I feel like there is no way I could handle any more when I can't control the ones I have, but it's amazing how things just work out. I still have a hard time with 4 and our baby is 15 months!

Congrats!! I am so excited for you guys! Hope the pregnancy is going well, and you will do great with three kids because you are awesome!

Ashley Wray said...

Wow! Congrats, you will do great! I'm always so impressed with people who can go without finding out the gender of their babies, it would drive me nuts! But it will be a fun surprise. Looks like you guys had a fun Thanksgiving!

The Hill Family said...

wow congrats that is very exciting. I bet 3 will be a big change. Where are you guys living now? I hope that you and your family are doing well. We need to have a Brown/Swensen gathering. It seems like forever since I have seen any of your. What is your husband doing for school? My husband just went back to school and I am teaching ballet again so life is busy. I am glad to hear you are doing well. Your kids are so cute.

Melissa B said...

I'm happy for you. Everyone has or is having their third baby. I'm jealous, but its a good jealousy. Three kids will be fun and crazy. Good luck being pregnant.

Megs said...

Congratulations, that is very exciting, more to love!!! P.S. I know you are all far away but I also hear of people stopping in on their way through, so if it works out, Bishop and Sister Hall are having a 51st ward reunion at their house this summer!! Please start spreading the word!

Melissa said...

Oh my word...my internet goes down for a week and look at what I've missed! Congrats you guys! We are so excited for you. You will do great with 3 kids. You always seem to handle 2 so well. Megan, how are you feeling? Hope you are doing well.

Congrats on expecting #3. It will be fine. It's why your average mom has kids one at a time. We take each in stride. You will be fine!
