IT'S A...

Another Rogers! Okay, so I wanted to keep it a secret from my mom that baby Rogers # 3 is on the way until I saw her next month because I'd be in maternity clothes by then. Well, I talk to her on the phone too much and she picked up on it but decided not to say anything, but I realized she must know because of my mistake on the phone and she did. Anyways, we are 15 weeks (3 1/2 months) today and we'll have the sonogram around Thanksgiving to find out what we are having. The due date is April 24th.
We haven't told Joy or Lucy that we're having another one, but Joy has picked up on it through listening to our conversations and she decided that my tiredness and tummy aches (morning sickness) were because I have a baby in my tummy. Out of the blue, a couple of days ago, Joy asked me, "Mommy, how old will I be when my baby brother comes out of your tummy?"
"If this next baby is a boy, you'll be 5 years old," I replied.
I guess we might be having a boy.

Bobbin' for apples

For family home evening we went bobbing for apples. The girls decided it was fun to put the apples back into the water after bobbing them out and trying to eat them while they were in the water. You know how kids are around water. We had lots of fun!

Pink Dresses

Some Pictures of the girls on Sunday.

The spot for the Gila Valley Temple has been officially designated. No more rumors about where it'll be. The temple will be located next to the baseball fields in Central, a small town between Thatcher and Pima. The ground breaking should happen in early 2009 and will take about a year or 2 to build. I can't wait to drive just 5 minutes to get to the temple instead of 3 hours. We'll get to go a lot more often, too. So if any of you are considering moving here, this is one more reason to do it!

Family Pictures

These pictures were taken by Flint this spring thought you might like to see them. Thanks for the pictures Flint.

Little Lucy

Yes we do have two daughters thought I post something about Lucy. Lucy is a fun little girl and is really learning a lot. Lucy has begun to potty train she will sit on her little potty and go pee but then she gets too excited and stand up in the middle and pees on the floor. Lucy love to play with her sister. One of there favorite games is kitty Joy is the person and Lucy is the kitty, Lucy will crawl around and meow. If you are sitting on the couch Lucy will crawl behind you put her arms around you and say baby back ride. It is a fun little game.

Hair cuts

The other day we took the girls to get a hair cut. Joy sat in the chair and the lady asked Joy how she wanted her hair cut. Joy said she wanted it short like Lucy's hair. So Amanda had the lady measure Joy's hair. Joy's hair was long enough to donate to locks of love so she got a short a hair cut and someone will get her beautiful hair. Lucy got a trim nothing crazy for her.


Joy has begun playing soccer. Joy is on the pink butterflies team. Joy plays in an all girls league with girls who are 4 or 5 years old. Most of Joy's team is four years old. Joy's team has yet to score a goal in the right net but has scored a few times for the other team. The pink butterflies are a young team and are at a disadvantage to most other teams because almost all of them are 4. However the last couple of games were very exciting since the girls are starting to figure it out. Sometimes Joy will growl to intimidate the other team.
