I decided this year to go with a kid/fun tree. So we have snowmen heads, gingerbread, candycanes, etc. So I thought it would cute if we made a popcorn garland. Well, it is really cute but I dont think it was worth the time and pin pricks.

I am the WORST at taking pictures. Poor Caleb has like 5. Anyways here is our Halloween. I can't even remember what we did. I know Connor and Chase each had little parties at their schools and parades too. Again poor Caleb didn't even get dressed up! I lost his costume (chase wore it 3years ago) and i didn't want to buy another one. The ward trunk-or-treat was a blast. We had so much fun trich-or-treating with friends.

Throughout my entire pregnancy with Caleb I felt like it was trial after trial. I found out I was pregnant while we were living in Lake Havasu then we were able to move home but not into our house, so we rented for a while. I absolutely hated the house we were renting. It stunk like smoke and animals, and the kitchen felt like a dungeon. I was soooo sick I remember I thru up 13 times in one day. It was terrible. Finally we were able to move back into our house ahhhh so nice. But right before we moved back home I had my first ultrasound. It was mixed emotions when we found out we were having another boy. Ofcourse we were happy that he was healthy and had ten toes and ten fingers. But I really wanted a girl, needless to say I shed quite a few tears that day. But in the ultrasound they saw a spot on the heart and that the kidneys were dialated. We had been through the spot on the heart before with Chase so we weren't worried in the least. But they sent me to a high tech ultra sound place. It was the scarriest day of my life. We were told that those two factors combined were indicators of Down Syndrome. After that I kind of tuned out I just wanted to go to my car and cry. The Dr. said there was a pretty good chance that our baby could be Down Syndrome! I left and sat in my car and cried and cried. Then I called Mike and cried some more. I tried not to look anything up online but I couldn't help myself. I knew no matter what we would keep the baby, and the baby would be lucky to come to a family that wouldn't abuse him and do everything they could to help him. I was coming to grips with it and there was still a really good chance he would be perfectly healthy. So a couple months go by then I have to go back for another ultrasound this time he said the spot on the heart was gone. Oh thank heavens! But he was still worried about the dialated kidney and now I had to much amniotic fluid. Oh boy. So the Dr. sits Mike and I down and says it's really important that we take care of this buy monitoring it and if he needs an operation we really need to get it done. Then he continued to say worse case scenario when he's a teen he will need dialysis and they tend to only live 4-5 years! Mike and I left in shock. I had to go every week to be monitored and have ultrasounds done. Well, Caleb was born perfectly healthy. His kidney is still dialated and he has to go every six months to have an ultrasound but so far so good. In the future he might have to have a littler surgery on his "plumbing" but we are just so happy and relieved at how things transpired. It was a really humbling experience and I'm so grateful that my Heavenly Father new what was best for my family

Connor is in kindergarten and loving it. He really wants to ride the bus so that MIGHT be in the future. Chase is going to Flying Colors preschool and thinks it's pretty great. The night before he kept saying he didn't want to go but then on the way to school he asked "you're not staying, right mom?"
