We always start the evening at my parents with the traditional meal of chili and homeade sugar cookies.Now that they live next door we were able to stay in our own neighborhood to trick or treat. This picture of all the kids is a bunch of the cousins at my parents house. This is a picture of Melanie on her first halloween. The blanket on her was a gift from her wonderful Aunt Lil. Yes I know I did not dress her up but please forgive me.

When I opened the garage door all the girls came running out. I did not have to do a thing . They got all her stuff and took her in. Life has never been better. She slept all day and did really good last night.It is amazing to me that Mothers have had to leave babies at the hospital longer then I did and some never get to bring them home. And they all survived. The Lord new what I could handle and he was with me every step of the way. I am greatful for such wonderful family especially my Husband. He is such a great dad. He took the kids to get pumpkins and carved them, While I was back and forth from the hospital with Melanie.He never complained when I went to the hospital every morning around 5 am and then came back home to sleep. Or when I came home and cried because I missed her so much. My Mother , Jessican and Lori kept the kids and the house clean. What would I have done without them. Watch out all who helped I will return the favor

She passed all her tests but one. The one she did not pass was one that said she is not fighting it on her own fast enough. One more night.

SOooo.... I went to the Dr. today. The baby is 6 lb 14 oz and I am measuring at 38 weeks even though I still have 4 weeks left. I am still on bed rest but it has a little more freedom. I can now do things as long as I feel good. ( which is about a 10 minute time frame at the most) He will start me on the 25th Unless the baby is 8lb next week. I lost 5 pounds since my last appointment on wedensday. I so wanted to have this baby the first of next week but it looks like it will be the first of the next next week. Thanks again everyone for your help.

I know that I have beem really terrible about posting but here is an update.I am 36 weeks pregnant and last week the Dr. put me on bed rest. I had went in on wedensday to have the Dr. check this pain that I have been having that seemed to be getting worse. The funny thing was I had called the nurse and she informed that there were no Dr.s in and I would have to go into labor and delivery. I told her I did not want to do that but if there was no choice I guess I would. I was slowley getting ready because I was dreading going in. As I was just about to go the phone rang and it was the nurse. She informed me that the Dr. was in the office for a few minutes and he would wait for me to run in. I was psyched I speed the whole way there. When I got there they did the standard check and then had me go into the exam room to be checked by the Dr. I was relieved when he told me I had torn a groin muscle. I fugured no big deal and the next thing I know he is telling me He is putting me on Bed rest for two weeks and then they would take the baby. He continued telling me that i only had restroom privelidges. I was in complete shock. He gave me a prescription for Loritab(which I did not fill) and sent me on my way.
I cried the whole way home. How was I going to take care of my 5 wonderful kids and husband.Amazingly I think I forgot how wonderful my family is. My Mother came over and started cleaning my house and doing my laundry. My great sister in law Lori went and got dinner from papa murphys for us and got the relief society set up.The next day my mother spent the whole day cleaning my house and taking care of the kids. Kerrys Mom and sister brought us broccoli soup and homeade bread for dinner. (it was heavenly) On friday My MIL took the kids all morning and my little sister Jessica, Lori and her dear mother Sharee Webb came and continued cleaning my house. I am amazed at all the help we have had. My house is now clean and the kids are at church with my parents.
I am so close to having everything ready for the baby. I only had to finish a car seat cover and diaper bag that I had started. I have a very giving friend Shelly Schwendiman that offered to finish the diaper bag. I am so greatful to her.
I know that the Lord is very watchful over us at this time. Next week is all covered for babysitting, and I have meals coming tuesday wedensday and Thursday. Who could ask for anything more.
I remember thinking in the past how I would love to be on bed rest but now that I am, I dislike it with a passion. I am greatful for all the help but I do not like sitting in my bed making someone else take over my responsibilites. I get so restless in my bed and if you see me in my van, Just remember I am still sitting and I probably just had to get out or I would scream.:) And yes I am sitting in my bed right now. Kerry brought his laptop home so I could have something else to do. So to everyone that has helped our family or who is going to be helping Thank you a million times over.

So Bree do I just need to throw a fit and stomp my feet and you will send me pictures of your baby too. My camera is dead and Kerry took the charger. So there, I cannot post pictures.
I know I needed to update a long time ago but with 2 hernias I just dont feel like it. The kids have all started school, and Madison is loving going all day. Megan is a teacher aide and enjoys that. Ashley got the homeroom teacher that she wanted so bad. Mrs Fife seems to be a great teacher. Lexi is starting preschool next week with miss Amy she can hardly wait to go to school with Mason.
Megan worked hard all summer selling bows and made $250 or more. She is a real entrepreneur. I am so proud of her.Every saturday you would find her at the farmers market selling aprons and bows. She then went to the school and sold uniform colors and did very well. Way to go Megan.
Kerrys buisness has been really slow and we look forward to the day that it picks up again.It has been really tough to see him work hard and see no income.We have been truly blessed and know the Lord is watching out for us. We have learned alot during this tough time. He still loves his calling and really enjoys the people he works with.
I have been busy laying in bed and being a Mother. Only 9 more weeks until we see this sweet little spirit that is coming into our home. We are trying to decide between the names Melanie, Hailey, and Katie. I think I have already ruled the name Katie out. My wallet was stolen last month , What a pain. Two of the girls social security cards were in there.
Well until next time see ya.

For those of you that have not heard we finally found out what our last and final baby is.I had a good feeling we would end our little family with a boy but alas it is a GIRL. Names, what do we name a 5th girl. Any ideas would be great. I am going to have to go shopping all our girl stuff is getting really worn.

Tonight during scripture study Kerry asked the girls if they new why Nephi and his brothers went back to Jerusalam. Madison did a wonderful job at telling us a story that sounded somewhat like this.
"Nephi and his brotheres went to Jerusalam and got all of there gold and took the gold to the bad man and asked him to trade it for the Grass plates. "
Kerry interjected here and said "you mean the Brass plates"
Madison quickly comes back and says very boldly "no the grass plates"
Almost as if Dad was so silly to think that it could be the Brass plates.

We were having family night the other night and Kerry asked the kids where the tithing goes too. Lexi quickly responded. "to the bank"
With Kerry being in the Bishopbric she sometimes gets to go with him when he takes the tithing to the bank. So she thinks thats were it ends.
We had a fun time teaching our kids about tithing.
Yesterday all the kids were home sick and Lexi laying in my bed says
" I don't feel good, can I get my ears peirced"
I dont know how those two things go together but I just laughed at her.
