Pretty dresses Little Curls, Oh thank heaven for little girls!

Lucky for us, we found out that we will be having two more sweet, precious baby girls! We have created a mold that has yet to be broken! While we are surprised that we have gone 5 for 5, we are so excited to have these girlies join our family. As President Gordon B. Hinckley (former prophet of the LDS church) said, “Of all the creations of the Almighty, there is none more beautiful, none more inspiring than a lovely daughter of God." How lucky for us to have the opportunity to raise 5 of them! We have been inspired by the "make-up room " in a good friend's house and will welcome any suggestions as to how to make a house with 5 girls run smoothly! Aaron is handling the news exceptionally well and is planning how he will intercept my attempts to make dancers out of them. He is working on plans for volleyball, basketball and fishing. Lucky for him, the three we have are not the least bit squeamish and have had many a pet frog, cricket, potato bug- whatever they can find! So, there you have it. Two more girls, and we are thrilled!

We can't wait for those teen years to hit...wow the hormones that will be raging in that home, and if you think you need boys around, just give it a few more years and they will be flocking around your house because of all these adorable little ladies!! Those were great pictures of Hall...I can't believe that huge paper shot...ADORABLE and something she will LOVE to have forever!

Congratulations Katie! Can you imagine the scene in the pre-existance. "Who wants to be in Aaron and Katie's family?" Every hand of the most beautiful blonde girls shoots up. I'm excited to see if they look as much like Halle, Maggie & Lainey. Congrats again!! We are so excited for you guys. You create such BEAUTIFUL girls.

Whitney and Brad said...

Brenda said...

Wow, what a miracle. When I told Ryan, he said, "They'll probably have two more girls." I'm so happy for you! Loved the pics of the 1st day of Kindergarten. Mine doesn't start until next year, and I'm going to lose it. The post on Nauvoo made me feel so nastalgic. I miss living close to the history sites and loved Nauvoo! You must not be very far along, because you don't even look pregnant in your picture! Good luck with everything!

Courtney said...

Wow! Two more girls! That's great! I hope all is gowing well for you.
