For Aaron's 3rd Birthday, we had a yummy Oreo Caramel Birthday Cake with my parents. Then we took the kids to the Boondock's Fun Center. They loved it. As you can see I'm no in any of the pictures. I was usually holding Kimberly or nursing her. And if there were to be pictures taken, then I was to take them. Huh, Life of a mother of three, I guess.

Nothing says "Happy Mother's Day" then a 9 month along belly!

Morning of the big day!!!

This is me dialating from 3 cm to 8 cm in less then 2 hours. Preston and I played Phase 10 the whole time. Yeah for the power of Hypnobirthing. (Thanks Wendy!!)

After 2 min of pushing Kimberly Virginia Davis was born 9 lbs. 7 oz. 21 in. long

Kimberly won for not only being the biggest baby born that day but also the fastest delivery! Hoorah!!

Third times a charm and we finally get a redhead. Yipee!!!

Not only did she get my red hair, but also my chubby cheeks.

Aaron and Abigail were thrilled to finally hold their baby sister.

Grandma & Grandpa Barlow with their 40th grandchild!

Grandma & Grandpa Davis with their 10th grandchild!!

At 3 days old she already shows signs of her sassy red head attitude. Boy are we in for a trip.

Happy Mommy!!! Happy Daddy!!!
Ready to go home!!! Let the fun times begin!!!

The previous homeowner did not have the installed properly, so over time it had been letting moisture in which molded some of the baseboard, subfloor, as well as drywall. Lucky for us, our neighbor is Mr. Fixit and has a "Mary Poppins" garage with practically every tool you can imagine.

The hole is now patched now on to another "one-ism" project. Yes, we ran into a lot of "extra-isms" throughout the whole project. Patience, patience patience.

Once again it has been forever since I've posted anything. We have been so busy finishing our house project that I haven't had time for anything else. It was a lot of work and it took longer then we expected or ever wanted, but it was all worth it in the end. Not only does everything look awesome, it also got my mind off being pregnant for the past three months. The time flew by so quickly that I can't even believe I'm having this little precious girl in the next 3 weeks. Yipeee!!!

Whoever thought that carpet was a good idea in the Diningroom, never had children!!

There it goes, finally!!!!

Preston's face says it all.

Because I was already 6 months along, I wasn't allowed to pull out carpet, but I did a dang good job at pulling out all 1 million staples that were in our floor. Lucky Me!!!

What a "Fun" surprise it was to find out that the patio door wasn't put in properly by the previous owner and therefore water had molded the baseboard, drywall and part of the subfloor.

About an hour later, we're finished with the carpet. Now onto the linoleum in the kitchen.
(Little did we know there were speed bumps ahead and we ended up living with the Diningroom this way for the next month.)

~The Kitchen~

Thank heavens the Linoleum came out really easy.
The subfloor wasn't too bad. Lucky for us they didn't put that much glue down.
Could this kid be any cuter!!
Out goes the stove, and onto the subfloor underneath.
Now to the subfloor under the fridge.
Now the cleanup. Abigail loves to help out especially when she gets to use our camping broom.

I'm not sure what to say about this picture. Other than......that's my little Aaron!

Abigail and Aaron have had so much fun playing out back in the snow this winter. I enjoy watching them from inside, of course. By the time I get them all bundled up and sent outside, it's only a short time until they want to come back inside for a nice big mug of hot chocolate.

Once again it's been forever since I've posted something new. We have been busy with a lot of house projects since the new year. We figured it was now or never with our new little "Girl" due in May and Preston will be busy with Scout Camps all summer long. Not to mention our Ward Camp Out that I'm in charge of. This should be fun with 3 kids under 4 and one of them is only a month old. Wish us luck!!
Anyhow, back to the house projects. We finally (emphasis on the finally) painted our bedroom, and of course the kids had to help out. I figured I better let them help as much as possible since I remember that "will to help" usually fades away when they get older. Here are a few pics of them painting with us.
(Why is it that once you give a child a flashlight, they stick it in their mouths?)
