"You have nothing in this world more precious than your children. When you grow old, when your hair turns white and your body grows weary, when you are prone to sit in a rocker and meditate on the things of your life, nothing will be so important as the question of how your children have turned out. It will not be the money you have made. It will not be the cars you have owned. It will not be the large house in which you live. The searing question that will cross your mind again and again will be, How well have my children done?"

THANK YOU!

Thank you to EVERYONE who has had us in your head and hearts this past week! We felt your prayers and my dear friend has been so blessed with the comfort and strength that only Heavenly Father can provide!

On Monday, we spent a nice afternoon at the grave site with the kids. Amie and Aiden picked out a lovely flower and we had a picnic and sang HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Logan! It was nice. Keaton still isn't too sure about everything, but he now knows who Logan is when we show him his picture! Thanks again for all the wonderful calls on my behalf and flowers(Lind's). We really do have the greatest family and friends in the world...we have been shown that time and time again!

I was so excited to get some "family" snap shots while there, but alas, our camera has officially DIED! FORTUNATELY, last month I took the kids and my mom and we had a picnic at the cemetery. So, here are those pictures!!

My kiddos

Being kids...I found such peace that they had FUN there...it wasn't a sad place for them, and it showed me that it shouldn't be a sad place for me either. I am SO blessed to KNOW that my little family will live TOGETHER FOREVER! I W.I.L.L. see my little man again...what a reunion!

Speaking of babies...I am now 27 weeks pregnant?!?!?! SHOCK! WOW, this is going by F.A.S.T. I am feeling the discomforts of pregnancy, but grateful things have gone so smoothly! I am down to 3 week visits, and then at 30 weeks I'll go every other week! KRAZINESS! Sorry about the "scare" in a previous post. We still do NOT know the gender of this little one. If I had to guess, I'd say GIRL, but I call it HIM all the time...who knows! I'm carrying UBER high, but the babe is literally RESTING on my cervix. Dr's said it looks like it has already dropped...who knows! It moves ALL THE TIME and I'm exhausted ALL THE TIME like with Lilee, but the heart rate has always been where it was for Keat and Logan...WHO KNOWS!! Guess we'll find out in about 3 months!!

Here is my 20 week belly, and I will take a 27 weeker tomorrow before church(after I look presentable). I haven't been exactly consistent with the whole belly picture thing! I'm huge though, so look forward to that! I will also post a comparison photo of how I looked with Keat and Lilee...HUGE I tell ya!!:)
*
BLAH...I forgot...we have NO CAMERA! I guess there will be no new photo's until we get a new camera! Until then...
*
*
Remember, that is 20 weeks, NOT where I am now...it's a LOT bigger now!

Well, thanks again for loving us and supporting us as we grieved! We love you all!!
