Ryan and I have been working hard to get the girls in the basement room and get the babies room ready. I think we can finally take a break and look back at our hard work and see that everything looks good (or maybe good enough). Here are some of the pictures of the girls room and the babies room. I am pleased with how they turned out.Isabel's side of the room.

Lucy's side of the room.
The entire room. I love the chandelier. The room is big and bright. I love all the space and the open-ness (?).
FYI we decided on names. Introducing Henry and Amelia's bedroom. It's not totally decorated, but it is at least ready for when they come; crib up and clothes organized.
We decided to not buy a dresser right now so I am using the changing table and bins as a dresser. I cut vinyl and organized all their clothes. I think it looks pretty good and is functional.
The babies will be sleeping in the same crib for the first 4 or 5 months. Seeing only one crib doesn't freak me out as much as seeing the 2 car seats. It's hard to believe 2 are coming.
I can't wait to meet Hank and Millie!

I'm still here

I recently had my walls painted (by my sister Michelle), and added this bog clock and painting of the Ogden Temple (done by my talented Dad). I also added drapes to my windows (it's a little dark in the picture, but you get the idea). The picture of the drapes is below (I could get it to move, whatever!)My girls playing in the snow. To say they love the snow would be an understatement. They love it! Anytime it snows they go crazy!
34 weeks and counting! I am so big and so uncomfortable. I am really tired of being pregnant, but I am really not wanting these babies to come out yet. I am hoping to make it at least 2 more weeks, but maybe even 4. I will be beyond huge at that point. On a positive note, in the past month I have only gained 2lbs. I have no space for big meals, but these babies are growing. I have only gained 37 lbs this entire pregnancy, which is pretty amazing. I hope to not gain more than 40 lbs total, but we shall see. I feel good for the most part, just tired and sore. Sleep has become a thing of the past and I am lucky if I get more than 4 hours a night (unless I take an Ambien). We are getting really excited for them to come. Last night we set up the crib and I have started organizing the baby stuff. I spent yesterday cleaning car seats and getting them ready for little babies. When Ryan got home from work he said that seeing the 2 car seats freaked him out just a little. I think reality is starting to hit him. I can't wait to see these little ones (and maybe get a few hours of sleep without this large mass on my body).

December Pictures

Isabel's Christmas preschool program. It was very cute and Isabel did great on her speaking part. Here they are singing "Up on The Housetop".
Isabel had a dance recital. They danced to "I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas". I was really worried that she was going to have issues and maybe freeze on stage, but she did great! I was so proud of her. Her costume was super cute too (I'm not sure what is up with her pose though)!
My super cute girls in front of the Christmas tree. I can't get enough of them sometimes!
Every year we go to Ogden's Christmas Village. This year we went with the Hills. It was so much fun!
