Jordyn's Baptism

My little girls is getting so big. On December 4th 2010, Jordyn was baptised by her father. It was a great day. She was so excited and loved the whole thing. Ben did a great job and we had a lot of family and friends come and be a part of it. I'm very blessed to be a part of such a great family and to have the gospel in my life. I hope Jordyn will have her own testimony and be a good example to the rest of her friends. I love her very much.

Baby Bryanna

Bryanna Nicole Thompson was born March 24, 2010. She was 9 lbs and 2 oz. She was born a week early because we knew she would be as big as her sisters were. I really want to go into labor but am afraid to have such a large baby and end up with a c-section. I know I am a wuss. She was born with no complications except that Nana missed the delivery by about 30 minutes. She landed at the airport a couple of minutes after she was born. She was a really good girl and has been since.

Baby #4 (Bryanna Nicole Thompson)

I need to keep looking at this picture to remind me why I don't want to get pregnant again. I am not as big as I was with Jordyn bug I got uncomfortable a lot sooner. 4 pregnancies really does a number to ones body. This picture was taken the night before going into the hospital for my 4th induction. We went out to dinner at Wingers with Natalie Parry. She was going to stay the night and help get the girls to school so that I didn't have to worry about anything in the morning. I thought I would have been in the hospital a lot sooner but they didn't call me to go in until around 8 in the morning. I didn't sleep much the night before just waiting for them to call and so excited to finally be done with being pregnant.

1 year later plus 2 months

This is one sunday when we had a lot of time before

Well, as you can guess a lot has happened in our family in the past year. The last post was about Rylee's first birthday and now she is over 2 years old. She will no longer be the baby and she is getting so big. Last year we were living in West Valley and in June of 2009 we bought a home in Midvale. We love it here. The neighbors are great and the ward is really good also. I wish there were more kids in the neighborhood but we can't have everything we want. Jordyn is now 7 years old and in 1st grade and Lacey is 5 and did a little bit of preschool until it got to much for me. I am 9 months pregnant and due any day now. My due date is the 31st of March but I will be induced on the 24th if it doesn't come sooner than that. It is another little girls so that makes 4. Her name will probably be Bryanna Nicole Thompson. Her name is after my dad since I wasn't able to produce a boy we are naming our last girl after him. In the last 4 months Ben has broken two fingers and gotten Lasik surgery on his eyes. He can see great and his left hand now has 4 screws in it. 3 in his pointer finger and one in his pinkie.

Lacey and Rylee's Birthday

There is my cutie, she wasn't shy about eating the cake and making a mess once she got the okay from us. She only ate the frosting. (This is at the family party at Grandma Thompson's house)
Today is Rylee's Birthday and I felt like I should write a little something about my wonderful one year old. I can't believe that year has already passed since she was born and yet she still looks like she is 6 months old. She has been such a pleasure to have in our family and I couldn't be happier to be a mother of 3 wonderful girls. They are the apple of my eye and I don't know what I would do without them in my life. They are always playing together and trying to make the other one laugh. Jordyn is now 6, Lacey is now 4 and Rylee is now 1. That means that I only one more birthday (my husbands) before I have a 10 month break from any more birthdays (besides mine, but hopefully I am exempt from planning my own party).

Lacey had her birthday 10 days ago and didn't get many pictures. We went to dinner for her birthday and she got to choose where we went. And you guessed it, we went to Souper Salad. Then we took her swimming a couple of days later because it was to late to go on her birthday. Then on Sunday the 4th of January we had a joined party for our family at grandmas house and had family come over and had cake and ice-cream. I am pretty sure she enjoyed it even though we didn't through a huge part like we did Jordyn. I didn't think I could physically or finacially do another party like that. Although it would have been easier now that Ben is here to help.

I thank our Heavenly Father each and every night to be blessed with so many things. My family is the best and I couldn't ask for anything better. HAPPY BIRTHDAY LACEY, RYLEE, AND SOON TO BE BEN.

Christmas Eve

I always love Christmas Eve, with all of the traditions that come with it. At the Thompsons they have a Norweigen dinner with flat bread, salmon, ludafisk, boiled potato, and steamed carrotts. After a great meal Diane has tradition cookies and Rice pudding. After such a wonderful dinner and dessert we have a special visitor named Santa. He comes in while the house is really dark and we all sit around and watch as he drops off presents for everyone. Then after we open our presents from Santa the kids get p.j's from grandma and grandpa. These are the p.j's they got this year. Isn't it cute that the kids love each other so much. They both let me curl their hair too. I was so excited. Jordyn's didn't turn out with the sponge rollers so I had to grab a hot curler and I think it turned out okay. I am so blessed to have such wonderful children and have them like each other.
This is me just chillin with my three beautiful girls while we wait for santa to come. They were so excited.
Jordyn got necklaces and an earring set. Lacey got a big yellow carebear that sings. Rylee got a carebear also but it was more her size. This was her enjoying her toy.

All the fun before Christmas

I love it when the girls play so good by themselves in the playroom. They were playing house with the barbies and it was so great to have some time to get ready for Christmas. Jordyn is just like her mother and likes to play with friends that are older than her. This is Ashley who is 8, and Lacey will do anything her big sister does. It is nice that the older girls will play with a 4 year old.
My lovely husband gave my baby a cookie while they were doing gingerbread houses. She enjoyed that cookie very much. She enjoyed helping eat the houses and crawling all over the house.

This was our gingerbread house, and as you can see we can never do a traditional house. This is our car wash gingerbread house. Ben loves doing gingerbread houses and looks forward to it each year. It is nice to have such great friend, we could really call them family with the way they take care of us. Thank you Triggs.

This picture was taken at her cousins baby blessing. Oakley McKnight was born October 2nd and was blessed December 7th. He is a great big boy even bigger than Rylee and she is 11 months old in this picture. This is her Christmas outfit that we bought for Lacey 3 years ago but she only got to wear it once so it was great that we got to let Rylee wear it atleast 3 times. It should have been small on her but it was actually big because as we all know she is barely 15 pounds and still fitting into 3-6 month clothes. She is our petite angel.
