And I LOVE it!!!! anyway, you will see one quick pic of it and I will post more later!

So, Jake had 12 of his friends over last night for a his birthday party. They played in the backyard, did a pinata, had cake and opened presents. It was lots of fun!!

We had a party at grandma Strong's. Jake got the coolest cake and lots of fun presents. Thanks grandma!!!

opening presents at home with us on his birthday. He kept telling us he wants a suit like daddy for church!!! So, he got his suit...I cant wait for him to wear funny!!

Then we did the circus on his birthday that night. It was lots o fun....but really long!! The kids loved it.

I'm pregnant!!!!!
So i know what most of you are thinking right, that was fast. Didn't she just have a mis-carriage? Let me explain. So yes, it was fast. I am 9weeks now and felt I needed to share this very exciting news. I went to my Dr. appointment after all the hell I went through in June and he asked how fast I wanted to get pregnant. I wasn't really prepared to answer, but my answer without even thinking was as soon as possible. He told me to wait a month and it would happen. Now in the past with Jacob and Kylie it took me 1yr. I really didn't want to go through 1yr of waiting again, and luckily we didn't have to. Was I surprised to get pregnant so fast and close to the miscarriage, yes!! But so happy and feel so blessed it worked out like this. I really wanted to be pregnant by the time December rolled around, since that's when I was due. It all worked out perfect and I get a spring baby (due in April) like I have always wanted! Being pregers in the summer is not so fun. So the reason I am sharing this is because this pregnancy is like no other I have ever been through. I seriously feel like I am calling my Dr. every day with a new issue...I have never done that! I am on a pill in the morning to help prevent miscarriage, a pill every 6 hours to help with my terrible nausea (its so bad!!) and a really great pre-natal. And as of last night calling the Dr. on-call I started and took all night a migraine medicine. Its been a really ruff pregnancy so far, but I'm grateful for it. It usually means a healthy baby! So, long story short, if you see me out (which doesn't happen much right now) and I look a little ruff, you now know why. I am starting to show to, it just gets better every time...yikes!! Sorry for the long post, just wanted to share our news!

Jacobs 1st day of school.....

Jacob misses the deadline for kindergarten by a few weeks so he is going to preschool again this year. He is going to a different preschool though...Mrs. Carol. She is the greatest lady ever!! She lives in our ward and has done preschool out of her house for 20+yrs. He is going with all his friends from the neighborhood and is so excited. I love to watch him learn and grow and just be so excited that school is here.
