It is a ..... Girl. So they say.

Yes, it is true, we went for our ultrasound yesterday and behold they say it is a girl.

Rob is very excited and says she is beautiful! Peter is happy because he wanted a girl and Caleb says he is excited too because it will be his first sister. Diedre, well I am still a mix of emotions. I am happy that from what they can tell the baby is healthy. That is wonderful. But a girl? I am still trying to wrap my head around that idea and figure out my future. I know, there is no need to worry. I will get it right, eventually, and love her just like my boys. But boy, this is not what I was expecting.

So, to help the boys celebrate they had things that were pink for dinner and snacks. Although toward the end I think they were pinked out. And just so you know, in my storage room I have everything blue too. I was ready either way. Also, I do not want everyone to go hog wild and buy me every frilly dress and pink thing in sight. After the ultrasound I was sitting there and when I thought of all the new clothes I will have to buy for this new baby, oh man! What an adventure it will be; a cute, fun, NEW adventure it will be! And if you all think I am taking this too seriously, I probably am. I just cannot wrap my head around the idea. Love you all!

Happy Birthday, Grandpa Gray!

We hope you have had a great couple of days! These boys love you (as do all the others)! You are always so fun to play with and make them laugh. You take us all on kinds of fun vacations (Peter still to this day talks about wanting to go back to Rhode Island) and you make them feel loved. Happy Birthday! We think you are awesome!

My Mother's Day

Mother's Day was so special for me this year. On Mother's day morning, Jason let me sleep in (which is a HUGE gift in itself) and he and the boys cleaned the whole house while I was sleeping. They also made a beautiful breakfast of french toast, sausage, eggs and O.J. I also received some pretty daisies and my favorite cereals: Raisin Nut Bran and Fruity Pebbles. Below is a picture of my flowers. The cereal did not last long. Jason also gave me a yummy strawberry short-cake dessert. Carole gave me a vase with flowers and a cute post-it book. One of the best parts about my day was Jonathan's talk in primary. He read the book "I Love You Forever" to the primary and talked about how his Mom taught him about Jesus and his sacrifice for us. I was so touched-he had me in tears. Thanks so much for a great day. Love,
Dacia. A.K.A. Mom.

My awesome boys

I would title this post Happy Mother's Day but it is days past and that would not make sense. So, I will show you all how awesome my boys are (yes, I am including Rob in "my boys") and the present they gave me for Mother's Day.

A while ago I told them that for Mother's Day I wanted a gardening box to have more space to plant this year. Rob was wonderful and went to Lowe's, got the wood and spent a good portion of his Saturday putting it together. He is awesome! Then we got some really great dirt and Rob, Peter and I filled up the box. Peter was such a big help and in the first picture you can see what he and Will did after it was filled up. They went around and picked blossoms from different trees and "planted" them in my box. Peter told me, "look how pretty I'm making the garden box." They were so cute. Then the Saturday before Mom's Day we planted everything and it was so great! I love to garden and my boys are such great helps. This is the final product with our pumpkins in place. Let's hope they grow and flourish.
Then the actual Mother's Day was great. Caleb, Peter and I went for a nature walk in the morning and they had such fun. Then they sang in Sacrament and Peter was so cute with his first time. He was so confused where to go to sing but he was so sweet up there, and Caleb of course sang all the words. My boys (including Rob) are awesome and I love them all. Thanks for the great day, guys!
