Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving!!! We had a very blessed Thanksgiving. Austin was able to come home and we spent Thanksgiving Day at Mike's parents house. My Mother-in-law made a wonderful meal and we had our fill!! After eating the boys played tennis with Mike for a while and then with Grammy. I was at the pool with the smaller ones and then Mike joined me. Of course it wouldn't be a pool time without me having to go in in my clothes to rescue Christian- lol!

Friday after Thanksgiving we hung out and Austin, Mikey, R.J., and Ben went to a movie together . They had lots of fun. Today - Saturday - we went bowling with my sister Jenny, my brother-in-law John, and my nephew Jacob. We had soo much fun. We had lunch out and then relaxed a bit before getting Austin to the airport.

We also had exciting news to share with everyone this Thanksgiving. We are having our 9th baby in June. My due date is June 16th!! I can't believe I am 12 weeks along already. We are very happy and the kids are thrilled. We are looking forward to finding out if it is a sister for Maggie or another brother for the boys. Time will tell.

Ben's 8th Birthday

Today is Ben's 8th birthday. He was born at 3:59 in the afternoon. I remember I was soo sure he was a girl because I had gained so little weight compared to the other 3 pregnancies. I guess I let a lot of people know because I was asked more than once if I was alright with the fact that he was a boy. Of course I was!! God had blessed me with a beautiful and healthy baby and I was soo glad he was finally born.

Ben is our sweet and intellectual boy. He is smart and loves to hang out and do puzzles. He has started to really enjoy soccer. He is also good at reading and baseball. We are very happy Benedict Gregory is a part of our family. Happy birthday, Ben!!!
