Audrey Jane

We welcomed Audrey Jane Peterson into our family on Saturday, October 24th at 9:21 a.m. She weighed 9lbs, 5oz and was 21 inches.
I went natural (no meds) for the first time and felt like a super "rock Star" after I found out how much she weighed. It was an awesome experience and I would totally do it again. I also was so excited to finally have an "Amber" that actually looks like me! She has dark hair and features and looks exactly like my baby pictures...I love it and I am smitten...she is beautiful!
Not knowing what we were having made the delivery experience extra awesome! Tim got to announce the gender to me and I couldn't have been happier (I secretly wanted a girl!). Avery was thrilled as well and keep saying, "thank you SOOO much for having a girl". When Avery found out, she threw her arms in the air yelling "YES, YES!"

We are all in heaven and loving every moment as a family of five!

A Terrific Day!

Today started off with the purchase of this...

The Blendtec Blender...I have wanted a blender like this for over a year and had to do some convicing Tim, that it really was worth every cent of it's expensive price tag...after one try and a few utube videos...Tim is SOLD!

Next, we had a picnic in the park and feed the ducks! My kids had a blast and I worried the whole time that they were going to fall in to the water, as they enjoyed getting close to the edge. We all left with tummies full and clothes all dry!

Then, we came home, meet Tim and headed to the Carnival across the street from our home at the Daybreak Elementry school! We had a blast and the best part was a friend of ours was leaving early and gave us all her left over tickets...timing couldn't have been better!

Finally, we headed out and dropped by the AT&T store to get our new iPhones!! Which I am totally in love has changed my world!

Yeah, for a totally terrific day!

Dance Recital

Avery had her dance recital today. She did awesome and loved every moment. She didn't love the make-up, it kept making her itch her face and smearing her lipstick all over her face. I reapplied it maybe 10 times. I'll post some pictures soon...

Bye, Bye Binkie

Today Tim cut the end off of George's binkie (he called it his "BeBe"). We told G his teeth were to strong and sharp (like a shark) and that they bit a whole in his binkie...poor kid, he was devestated and tried desperately to fix his binkie with some small tools. It broke my heart. It may have been slightly harder for me, than G.

The Official Announcement

of Baby #3...due October 19th.

Hello, this thing on?

Apparently NOT!

Okay, Okay...I admit I am truly a slacker, but trust me I have very good reasons.
1st -I have had "Morning Sickness" since February...yes we are expecting baby #3 in October...more to come soon regarding this subject. However, I am feeling much better these days -thank goodness.
I have several more reasons, but I think that one is good enough for now. Hopefully, I am motivated to download some pictures from our recent vacation to southern Cali and document the absolutely wonderful time we experienced together. I wish I were still there...
Signing off...more to come...

I am slowly figuring out a new routine and hoping to find some much need blog time in it...wish me LUCK!

The BIG 02 for George...Race Car Style

On Saturday we celebrated George's 2nd Birthday! He had a Race Car themed birthday and FINALLY got some "boy" toys to play with...trucks, cars, race tracks, and more trucks! He's been in heaven ever since. He was quite clinging to me the whole evening. He's not a fan of crowds...but he still had fun!The highlight of the evening was when George wanted NOTHING to do with the candles on his cake...for some reason he is scared of fire...and I'm okay with that. No candle blown wishes for George, good thing Avery was there to help her brother out! Thanks Avs!I love you my little man~ Happy Birthday!

A HUGE shout out to Auburn for helping me with George's race car cake...Aubs, your the BEST!!

I VOTED for John McCain & Sarah Palin...

...the ONLY candidates that make any sense, the ONLY candidates that will make the RIGHT changes for our Country, and the ONLY candidates...well, I'll save my "Political Soap Box" for tomorrow. Tonight, I want to send out all my postive vibes for the Republican party! Let's here it for McCain & Palin!!!

Do Your Part - VOTE!

Today is Election Day. I urge you to do your part by voting and encouraging your friends and neighbors to vote as well. I feel very strongly that all Americans should value their right to VOTE! Here is a letter I came across in an email forward that I would like to share with you:

Dear Fellow Americans,
I write to those who want to change the world. When I grew up it seemed nearly almost every child wanted to change the world. My friends wanted to be teachers, astronauts, movie stars, sports heroes, veterinarians, nurses, and even one aspired to be president of the United States.
And then we grew up and forgot our call to make a difference. Today we often feel overloaded by the infusion of daily demands in our technology-driven world. Perhaps we may think, "I am just one. How can I make a difference?" Unfortunately, this sort of thinking means we have surrendered to the status quo.
Freedom is not for the status quo. The early American colonists were not satisfied with the status quo when they revolted against British rule. Under their courage and conviction the United States of America has become the free nation we live in today.
The American colonists understood what we have now forgotten: it only takes one to make a difference. One act of kindness, one move toward freedom or one vote can change the world. Yes, even one vote. Voting is one way in which we can change the world, or at least one nation. And yet if the actions of one can enable change, how much greater is the ability to enact change through the voice, actions, and votes of many.
We've heard it before -- perhaps as repetitively as our morning alarm clock -- that voting is our right, our patriotic duty. Yet we have apathetically pushed the snooze button on our right and duty to vote. To those who have resisted the snooze button, who have raised their voice, put their lives on the line, and stood against a field of opposing views to stand up for one's beliefs, I salute you.
The price to vote, to speak out, to be an American is not free. It is very expensive. We should not forget the many men, women, and children who have gone to battle for our freedoms, especially the right to vote.
Sadly, we live in an age in which the act of voting has slipped from its place of prominence. It is no longer considered an honor and privilege.
Instead, we are annoyed by the constant campaign ads that in terrupt our television programs or by campaign mailers that fill our mailboxes. We have become immune and apathetic about voting and what it means to our country.
Freedom is not free, nor is it cheap. Voting is not an inconvenience; it's a privilege. Voting is the very least we can do in defense of freedom. We have a right and an obligation to vote. Some will declare the lack of voting is a right, but I say abstaining from voting is an act of ignorance and precludes your voice from being heard in the American symphony that cries for freedom and liberty. This is your call to change the world. Start by voting on November 4.
