On My Mind...

Today as Halle was kissing and hugging me good bye and was walking out the door I just starred in amazement at how old she has gotten!! She is beautiful both inside and out. She is kind to everybody and makes friends easily she is outgoing and so happy all the time! She is a good example to her brothers and sisters and we are so blessed to have her in our family! As I think back to when I got married my youngest sister Danielle and Braden's youngest sister Krystle were Halle's age and now Krystle is married and Danielle just graduated. Halle is going to be 18 and graduated before we know it and I'm not ready! We need to live each day like it's the last. I'm going to stop worrying about the house being clean or having the perfect meal for dinner and start worrying about more important things in life like did I tell my kids how much I love them or tell them how special they are today. I was reminiscing and looking at pictures of when it was just Braden and I with Halle. She was and IS our everything!!

I also want to tell Danielle and Krystle that you girls are such a great example to my kids and I would be proud if Halle turns out just like you both!!

Isaac's Baby Blessing

We blessed Isaac on Sunday and he looked precious. Braden thought I should have taken off the bonnet but I thought it was cute and you don't see very many boys blessed in them and I like to be different!

Here is my darling Niece holding Isaac. She is so sweet!
Great grandpa and grandma Driscoll

Braden gave a nice blessing and we are so happy Isaac is here and healthy and we can't imagine life without him.

Isaac Braden Driscoll Is Here!

After a CRAZY CRAZY pregnancy our beautiful son is finally here! Isaac was born on his due date March 31,2009 and weighed 8lbs. 6 ounces and was 21 inches long. He is just perfect!!

My birth story....

On Monday March 30, 2009 I just felt different! I went to pick up some Mexican food and doughnuts for lunch (YES! I gained 55lbs) for me and my kids because I didn't want to cook and clean. When I came home we had a annoying gas alarm going off. I called Braden and he said he would come look at it later because he was in a meeting....UMMM WHAT?? What if you come home and we are dead? I was so tired and decided to turn on a movie for the kids so I could try and take a nap on the couch with the stupid alarm going off. 30 minutes later I woke up to what felt like water coming out of me. I wasn't for sure until I walked around and had a BIG gush. I was nervous because I knew I needed to get to the hospital because I tend to go really fast when my water breaks. (I went to the hospital at a 7 with Lauren not knowing for sure if I was even in labor) I called Braden to tell him to get home my water had broke and he didn't believe me. He thought I was trying to trick him to come home and fix the alarm. He came home we packed and left to go to the hospital. I WAS HAVING NO CONTRACTIONS!! (EMBARRASSING MOMENT....I put a pad on hoping that would be enough to hold the water on the way to hospital well Braden was making me laugh in the truck and it was gushing out all over. By the time I got to the hospital my pants were soaking wet and neither of us had a coat. I had to walk up to labor and delivery with wet pants down to my knees!) 6pm They checked me and I was a 1 and they gave me cervadel. I walked around the hospital to get my contractions going and at 10pm I was a 3. At 11:30pm they started the pitosin. My nurse asked me if I wanted a epidural and I told her no because I was feeling good and she told me I better get one because the anesthesiologist was going home. At 12:30 the anesthesiologist came in and gave me an epi and it was a dang good thing because 20 minutes later I was a 10 and the baby was coming. I pushed through 3 contractions and at 1:14am Isaac was born.

catching up...

I have been so busy with my kids and activities I haven't had time to blog which has also made my pregnancy fly by. Only a little more than 3 months and we will get to hug and kiss our sweet baby:)
Halloween night Halle was Hannah Montana, Luke was a army guy, Faith a clown and Lauren a lady bug.

Halle and Faith getting ready to perform at the 1st football game.

I'm so glad they love each other....

Faith loves to play tea party all day long and here are some of the friends she invites

I laughed so hard when I saw the snake dressed up in barbie clothes!

I don't like finding out what the gender of our baby is but my kids have been begging to find out so I decided I would to make everyone in this house happy:) Halle asked if I would send them on a scavenger hunt to find out what we were having.....
Luke is thrilled to finally be getting a baby brother and we all can't wait to hug and kiss baby Isaac:)
