Final moments before our Lifes change forever!!!

We didn't have to be to the hospital until 12:30 the day of my c-section, so Riley & I just hung out at home! (starving to death cause I couldn't eat or drink anything)

36.5 weeks! Ready to pop!

The soon-to-be Daddy!
Layin in my hospital bed!
Riley ready to go into the OR.
We were lucky enough to have our moms watch the c-section. They were in the next room watching through a window!!!
Almost time!
There we go!!! I couldn't have asked for better nurses (unless of course my sis-in-law still worked in L&D) & of course I had the best doc ever! Riley's older brother Jeff is one of my doctors and was so great to do the c-section on his day off, made it that much more special for us & our boys!

Happy Birthday Payton, Jantsen & Brooks!!!!

3 of our nephews have birthdays within 3 weeks of each other so we got together for cake & ice cream for all 3 of them! This was the day before our miracles join the family. (so their birthday falls in between Brooks & Payton!)

My sister-n-law set up a professional Maternity Photo shoot for me! I wasn't sure I wanted to do these (after all who wants FAT pictures taken) But I am so very glad I did!
This picture is to show how I'm going to have my hands full!!! (The cowboy boots were given to me at my shower by my dear friend Alyssa!)

My note to my little ones! "Love you, can't wait to meet you!"

It all Falls Down!!!!

We live in an older home so we have a lot of big Mature trees in our yards & we've hated not being able to see out our front windows. So Riley decided one day to get rid of our big pine tree. With help from our neighbors and our parents it actually went really fast.The view from across the street!!!Riley getting started, view from our garage!

Riley up getting some of the lower branches off!
One of the members in our ward came to help, so Riley cut a notch out of the bottom & they tied a chain around it, hooked it up to a truck and it all Falls down! Luckily it wasn't too far in the road, we thought for sure it would cover the whole road.Our parents were great to come help pick up the mess & haul it away!Our moms!!!Riley, Chris, Rich, Dad & MomI was supposed to be on Bed rest, but couldn't stay away from the action, so I got a chair & barked out orders! (not really) but I had to take a picture to prove that I was there too! & Yes I was ready to pop!!! (2 weeks before the babies came!)You can actually see our house now & we can see down the street better!!!
Riley cut this tree out last year, but left the stump. Here he is pulling out the roots so so we can pour concrete & extend our driveway!
