Merry Christmas......oh, and were having a...

I know, I can't believe it. I was totally convincing myself that we would have another girl, and they could be best friends and go shopping together, etc, etc. But apparently Annalise knew all along....It's a Boy! Many people have already asked....does that mean you are going to name him Oscar........only time will tell. Maybe we will have to do another baby naming bracket, because Kev and I have a hard time agreeing on boy names.

Well I wanted to say Merry Christmas to everyone!!
It has been an exciting year for us as we moved to Ohio for Kevin to begin school again, and now we are getting ready to welcome a new baby into our family.

This week we got to celebrate Christmas with both of our families, and it has been very, very busy. My brothers wife had her baby a week ago (the 17th), at 9 lbs 4 oz, 21 inches. And the amazing thing is that Lauren is only 4'11'', so Greyson was a huge baby compared to her.

Matt was able to bless the baby in their home on Sunday with everybody there, Grayson is already loved by many people. My mom had to take advantage of having all of her grandbabies together, so we took pictures with all of them (as seen above). The 1 year olds were not happy about it, but I think it is a cute picture.

Kevin was in Nicaragua last week doing a project for school. He had a great time in the warm weather, and it was a huge shock when he flew into Salt Lake with freezing temperatures and snow covered ground. I asked him if he wanted me to write anything about his trip, and he says "It was indescribable."

I hope you all had a wonderful year, and that you have enjoyed celebrating Christmas, and the birth of our Savior.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!

Congrats you guys! I think you should go with Oscar!!! I think that is so funny that Annalise likes to call her baby brother that. Oh, and yes, aren't boy names the hardest to agree on?! Conan and I had such a hard time with that. merry Christmas!
