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.
