Park Day with the Bremners

Martin, Jake and Roxie

Martin, Jake, Roxie and Lily
Uncle Randy and Martin
While Randy's family was visiting the kids went to the park and played.  AS you can see their favorite toy at the park was a spinner. Now most of the time the kids hang on it as it spins but Uncle Randy put the kids on top and they loved every second of it.
Everyday the Bremners were here Martin would ask when he could play with his cousins.  He loved playing with Jake and had tons of fun.  I was happy to see how well Roxie and Lily played being two princesses. 
I had fun hanging out with Heather and Baby Alyssa (Ok don't be offend I couldn't remember how  her name.)  Alyssa is the sweetest baby and I think I heard her cry maybe twice the whole time they were down.
Christmas Eve we all went to the Mesa AZ Temple lights and as always they were beautiful.  I know Jake and Tyler mentioned several times how it seemed weird to see palm trees with Christmas lights.
I have to admit the one thing I truly miss about Christmas is the snow on the lights and how beautiful it looks. However I do not miss the cold and being wet all the time.
Again we had tons of fun with Heather and Randy and I feel so blessed they came down to enjoy Christmas with Mom and Dad and my little family.

Christmas Morning at the Wimmers

Roxie's Toy Laptop
I wish I had taken more photos but there was so much going on and Zoey wanted me to hold her gifts while she tore into them. 
The morning started off with a wonderful yummy breakfast that Doug made and than each of the kids opened gifts with each one being better than the next down to the stocking candy.
I surprised Doug with a Microsoft Surface. He in turn surprised me with a Coach Bag and Wallet, New boots because mine from 2 years ago fell apart and the New Kindle Fire HD.
Martin was given tons of Lego's, Santa brought Roxie a toy puppy that she calls Carmel Corn which is perfect because her other soft puppy is named Chocolate Butter.  Zoey was given a Cinderella doll, My little Pony and a princess dress up set.
Than Grandma and Pa Bremner Came over with her gifts and gift from Steven's family who had us for Christmas.  Steven's Family gave us tons of games and the kids were so excited every time they opened another game well all expect for Roxie who said "Are we done yet."
The Kids bought Grandpa a tool set and hammer because his was stolen when someone broken into their place last year.  I also bought dad some of his favorite chocolates because after all it isn't Christmas without some kind of chocolate.
Mom and Dad gave me a painting of Mary holding the Christ child which is a painting I have wanted for years but haven't been able to find it. We enjoyed the wonderful gifts from Grandma and pa Bremner.
Later that morning we headed over to the Wimmer for Christmas gifts and again Martin enjoyed Lego's, Roxie loved her laptop toy and Zoey her little car.  Along with the yummy candies Grandpa Wimmer always gives everyone.
Than around 4pm Grandma and pa Bremner along with Randy's family, came over to the Wimmers for Christmas dinner and Thank you to Mom Bremner the HAM was amazing!
After dinner I had Martin come with me and game gave him Blue Gum cigars to announce that Doug and I are having baby boy.
Its was a long day but tons of fun.  I am so grateful for all the family that came down for Christmas and I feel so blessed and loved!
Thank you to Randy and Heather for driving down from Utah to spend Christmas in AZ with Palm Trees and no snow!
I think Martin, Roxie and Zoey will never forget this Christmas. I know I won't it was tons of fun!

I have a Secert and I'm not going to tell!

Last Night I was taking dinner to the Startins house in exchanged for an Ultrasound tomorrow and we decided to go ahead with the Ultrasound that night!
Brother Startin is an Ultrasound Tech and runs his own business. He has his portable Ultrasound Machine he brings home every night.  It is a Labtop!  Hahah.
The baby is healthy, the heart is beating and Brother Startin didn't seen anything of concern. To be honest that is the most important part of an Ultrasound knowing the baby is growing and healthy.
Being a Wimmer\Bremner the baby wasn't shy and gave us a full few.  Just like Martin, Roxie and Zoey who really wasn't shy at all.
Now what are we having I guess you will Just have to wait until Christmas with everyone else!

How Many Thinks its a
Or I am Pulling Your Leg and I really don't know.

Camera is on the run!

A few days ago I found a package on our front step it was a basket and I realized someone picked out family to do the 12 days of Christmas.  Every day a gift is from the song 12 days of Christmas.  The first day four pares and a dove candy bar, the next turtle chocolate candy, 3rd a CD, 4th Egg and yesterday they left a box of donuts!  Every night the kids get so excited to open the door and see what was left.  Doug and I enjoy it because it bring such a spirit to Christmas!  I am grateful for whoever chose are family as their secret Santa!

I wish I had pictures of each of the treats but my camera ran away to Doug's work.  I guess it needed a break from the constant picture taking.

The kids are super excited this Christmas because they will have cousins coming down to visit for the holiday!  My brother Randy and his family will be driving down from Utah to spend Christmas with us!  Martin has his room planned and ready for this two boy cousins and Roxie hasn't decided if she wants to share she bedroom yet. 

I hope to have pictures soon!!

A Wonderful Gift

Over the last few years I have met so many wonderful people.  I love having roots because I find myself truly getting to know the people in my ward.
This last year I have learned I have an amazing family and an amazing ward family with wonderful and loving friends.  I have been so very blessed.  We have our ups and downs and some times it feels like more downs than ups recently but when we love and server others the hard time are still there but they seem to be more mangeable.

During the Christmas Presidency devotional one of the presidency said "We need to be good receivers as well and good givers."  I love to give gifts but I always feel like I can never top the gifts that have been given to me.  So when a wonderful family dropped off an amazing gift I thanked the couple and being Heidi gave tons of hugs!  But than I thought what can I do for the couple to give back.  Than the message popped into my head be a wonderful receiver.  So instead of thinking what can I give to top this beautiful present I took pictures of Zoey on the horse and printed it off with a Thank You Card written and signed by everyone in the family.
 When Brother Hawk dropped of the horse he said "Zoey didn't tell Santa what she wanted and we were worried she wouldn't get anything."  With his sweet smile he placed the rocking horse on the ground and wished us a Marry Christmas. The Hawks Family Christmas Tradition is to make 4 rocking horse and give them away to different families. 
Zoey on her Rocking Horse!
Family isn't what you are born into but people around you who care, love and are there when you need a helping hand.  I have more family around me than I ever thought possible.  I miss my siblings and parents but I have been very blessed to truly have a ward family!

I'm not going to miss being pregnant

I went to see my doctor yesterday for my monthly check up.  The baby had a great heartbeat and the doctor found it fast too.  I told him I was still suffering from nausea but only at night or days when I didn't get much sleep.  He said that was really strange.  Not something a doctor should EVER tell a pregnant lady. 
Thankful it has a cure take pepcid ac!  My doctor thinks it is caused by the stress and acid reflux.
So I have add anti acids to my endless supplies of things to remember to take. Vitamins, anti-nausea,  and now antacids. I hope this works because I really dislike being sick every night around 7pm until I go to bed at 11pm.
The babies heart beat has stayed the same about 155-165.  Now again my doctor reminded me the speed of the heart has nothing to do with the sex of the baby.  My doctor asked me if I was going to find out this time and I said "I have been seeing you for 7 years. Really you think I want to be surprised?"  He laughed and said "Well when woman say this is their last pregnancy they liked to be surprised. Or have you decided to have another baby after this one."  I laughed so hard and said "As far as I know this is the last baby and yes the first question I am going to ask is Boy or girl?" We laughed and I went on my way.  Oh I have only gained 9lbs and I am 16 weeks.  With Zoey I put on 10lbs in one months so I am very happy with the slow weight gain this time.

Normally by now I have an idea of what we are having because of a feeling or a dream but right now I have no idea.  I can't wait to find our because I really need to get my dining room back from the DI piles of girl baby clothes, toys and stuff.
I know Grandma Bremner is hoping for a boy because she bought me a cute little boy outfit and I think she is done making blessing dresses.
