Our Strong Family

So, I can't sleep and I can't believe I am sitting in front of the computer at 1:30 am. Here goes.. we had a doctors appt this mrng and we found out our precious, little one will not be joining our family at this time. After many tears, we decided to go to the hospital and we had a DNC done tonight. Both Ryan and I felt good with that decision. We have felt so much love and support from so many people. THANK YOU!! Thank you for the flowers, tears with me, and just loving our family. We know we can make it through this and we will!! I have to thank Ryan. He is my rock, my best friend, and cried with me today. I am so blessed to have him in my life. My Dallin... he makes me want to get up every morning and be the best mom I can. I didn't think I had any tears left inside me today but they keep coming. I know my Heavenly Father loves me and that keeps me strong. I know our family is eternal and that makes me smile at times like this. I just wanted to share and let you know that I love you!!

Please don't leave a comment. We have already felt so much love. Instead, please say a prayer for our family.

On a lighter side, Grandpa Great I didn't get to ride the train while I was out like you. Ryan and I talked about that before I left. We love you so much and hope you are feeling better!!!

We are so excited to share that we are PREGNANT!! I am 15 weeks along and we are due March 10th. I am so glad to be done with the first trimester. I was really sick at the beginning but am feeling like myself these days. I have to thank Ryan for all of his help. He knew what I needed and did what he could to make my life easier. Dallin sure was a trooper too. I have been feeling flutters these last couple of weeks which has made it fun. The flutters are getting stronger and stronger.

We made this bear from build a bear to tell our family we were pregnant. We were able to customize a button inside the bear. When you pushed the button Ryan said "Dallin's going to be a big brother" and I then said "We are pregnant." It was fun to see all of the expressions when our family pushed the button.
We feel truly blessed in the month of March. We have our anniversary and probably 2 children's birthday in March. We also feel so blessed to be able to add another precious, little one to our family. We can't wait for this one to join our family!!

Our Dallin

We have had so much fun with Dallin. He sure is growing up!! A cute Dallin story- the other day I was making goulash for dinner. Dallin loves to be my helper in the kitchen so I usually pull up a chair next to me for him. He knows what is hot and will say it over and over. I was cutting up onions and green peppers. Towards the end, Dallin started to whine and I tried to hurry. As I put the vegetables in the pan my eyes started to burn from the onions. I looked down at Dallin who was still whining. His eyes were red and a little runny. He was rubbing them. Poor guy- his first experience with onions.

We love Dallin's cute smile!!

Dallin wasn't excited to get dressed for church but I think he looks cute. I got the top for $1.80.

On Saturday we went to the St. John's fair. We had lots of fun. When Ryan was in high school he entered several pigs into the fair. We came home with homemade bread, salsa, and peanut brittle.

Dallin loved all the animals but especially the horses. Whenever they made noise he would get so excited.

These pigs were so huge. Dallin wouldn't stand too close to them. He would just laugh and try to get away.

Of course he had to get a balloon and carried it everywhere.
