Its a Girl!
OK, with that being said, I kept myself very busy today. I swear I did 10 loads of laundry, and reorganized the kids and my clothing. I started with a yummy breakfast so I would have the energy to keep up with myself. Finally my appointment came. Up till today I've done my best to convince myself it is a girl, just so I wouldn't feel let down. But of course, as much as I did that, I still held on to every drop of hope it would be a boy. So I go into my appointment, Dr. looks, he points out the three little parts that make this baby a girl, and that was that. Here it is pointed out for you all to see.
Once upon a time, there was a girl who meet a boy. They flirted, they danced, they dated. They meet the families. They Fell In-Love! Soon they married and life took over. Baby number one came and then three more! That girl became a woman. That boy became a man. They were parents. They were something greater than themselves. Life as they knew it had changed, but through it all, they discovered the true meaning of life. Life taught them a different kind of love. Still, they are lovers, friends and partners. And when those four babies are grown and gone, they will look different, but they will still flirt, dance and date. They will still have each other. And nothing beats Eternity with your soul mate!

This entire weekend has been a little crazy. As Alex ends the final round to his Master's Degree, he is becoming very busy with homework, tests, papers, projects, online discussions, and SO ON. Ok, so this last weekend he had an At Home Test. It consisted of 5 essay-ish questions. The answers were to be about 5 pages each, making it a 30 page project!! Ughh! He went to the library Saturday and pretty much worked on it all day. That night we took the kids out for ice-cream. He resumed his test Sunday morning. There was no way he could go to church, so I packed up the kids and went to my Mom's house for the entire day so that Alex could have a nice quiet house to himself. We got home around 7, I threw the kids in the shower and put them right to bed. Alex wasn't done and in short ended up staying up the WHOLE night finishing it!! He is done with that part and will be on to something else soon. We can't wait until he is done! Can I just say I have married an amazing person! Alex has been in school consistently every semester and summer since we've been married!! All the while, being the bread-winner. That is 7 years folks! What an accomplishment! It will be nice to have a husband around who doesn't have homework to worry about.
Here are some pictures of the kids:

Yesterday was a busy day, we got alot accomplished. First off, Alex finished the fence. Yay! He also changed the alternator in his car and cleaned it, and I cleaned the entire garage and fertilized our lawn. It took us till around 4:30 to get finished. After that we loaded up all the scrap wood and took it out to my parents house where we had a little bonfire with the kids. We all had a really good time. Here are some pictures of our evening.

Logan is 10 1/2 months old now, and here are some things about my little guy:
He has two teeth on the bottom. He is crawling, and walking along furniture. He loves real food! He loves playing with his Sisters if they'll let him. Dejah is usually the most loving to him, Mycah tends to be the bully and plays rough. He doesn't really like that. He LOVES back rubs. It is the one thing I'm sure will calm him. He has the fattest little thighs and feet. He definitely got my brown eyes and he is just as bald as his sisters were. He loves it when I play with him. He squawks all the time saying "Da Da Da..Da". He hates sippy cups, but loves it if you give him something from a straw or real cup. He's obsessed with the broom. Whenever the pantry is open, it is the first yucky thing he goes for. He loves to get out. If Logan is having a "meltdown", I can calm him by taking him somewhere. He is still a terrible sleeper, I'm not sure what I'm going to do when baby Four comes. Literally he wakes up squawking or crying every night. Last night he cried for at least a couple hours on three separate occasions. Anyway, I love my boy! I'm so glad to have him.

We woke up this morning to sunny skies and FREEZING cold temps!! Oh well, kids gotta do and Easter Egg Hunt right? So we went to the one here in Kuna. It was fun, despite the weather. We bundled them all up good. Dejah was a bit grumpy at first, but she was just nervous to run out in the field all by herself. She felt better after a girl from the ward found her and ran out there with her. Logan was a trooper, and Mycah was excited!
This spring break has been pretty nuts. First off, the weather is CRAPPY! I really hoped for nice warm weather so that I could be outside helping, but that just wasn't the case. With cold wet weather, my kids need to be INDOORS. This has been mainly an Alex Only job, and its looking good.
We are almost done. I'll post pictures of the final results when I can.
