Beautiful Baby # 5

The very first glimpse of our precious little one!

The night before any ultrasound I am a little hesitant, my mind often wanders a little to much sometimes! I catch myself thinking " I wonder if it will have all its fingers and toes, will the heart have four chambers like it is supposed to, will the kidneys and bladder be just right, how about the brain? Rachel's ultrasound came back and the doctor said that there was something a little wrong with her kidney and they would have to check it after she comes out. Everything was normal when she was born. It truly amazed me though that they could see all of that and know when something wasn't quite right. Usually within a couple minutes of my minds wanderings I fold my hands, close my eyes and give all my thoughts and worries to the Lord, knowing that He has a plan and a purpose! Then I roll over and fall asleep so thankful that everything is in His hands and I look forward to getting the first glance at one of the most amazing things being created right before our eyes! God is so very good!

For You created my inmost being;
you knit me together in my mother's
womb. I praise You because I am
fearfully and wonderfully made;
Your works are wonderful, I
know that full well.
Psalm 139:13-14

Montana Trip

Special family, relaxation, celebration and beautiful mountains. This is what we were able to enjoy last weekend. We drove two full days to spend a day and a half in Montana then leave and drive another two full days home. It was worth it to see cousins, aunts and uncles that we haven't seen for four years. (That much time away from each other should be outlawed!) It is amazing how much kiddos grow in that amount of time! They hit it off like they had just seen each other yesterday though.

Special cousins! We got to MT on Fri night and it was not hardly 50 degrees and snowing on the mountains but then Sat it hit 70 and Sun around noon it had hit almost 75. Thank you Lord for the beautiful weather. The mountains were absolutely gorgeous with all the snow on them still. Sadly I did not get any pics of them, I was worried about getting all the cousins. You will have to check out my mom's face book page for all the pics she took (most of them were of the mountains.)

This is how we traveled in style. Dog pile on dad so we can all see the movie. Dad drove a lot of the way but the kiddos enjoyed it when he took off. Grandma was awesome and drove a bunch too!
