Lucy had her Birthday last week. Lucy love elmo so we made her an Elmo cake. It took so much red food coloring to dye the whip cream. We had a little birthday party for Lucy at Uncle Isaac house. We had a little BBQ and then got down to bussiness. Lucy took a long time to blow out her candle she just looked at it. All the other kids wanted to help her. Lucy did not know what to do with her presents she got some help from her cousins and then she got excited. The cake was such a mess all the kids had to take off there shirts to eat it. Good times were had by all. Now the real fun begins!!!

With our new addition coming this spring, we decided to kick Lucy out of the crib and put her in a big girl bed. Joy is on the top, of course, and loves it. Lucy also wishes that she was on top, except she can't get down by herself. The first night we had it, I had to get Lucy down from the top 3 times before she finally stayed in her own bed. The quilts were made by Grandma and Grandpa Rogers.

Tights and shoes

Lucy wanted to go outside to play so I told her to go get socks and shoes on. This is what we ended up with!

Kids say the darndest things!!

A few weeks ago, Dale took Joy to a cashier appreciation party at Home Depot where they played games and hung out. One of the cashiers asked Joy if she was going to be a cashier at Home Depot when she grew up. Joy replied, “Sure.”
Then the cashier told her that she ought to go to school so that she could be the boss like her dad (Dale’s an assistant manager) and asked her if she would want to be the boss. Joy replied, “No, I just want to be a mom. My mom bosses my dad around.”
She knows who wears the pants in this family! Love ya, Dale!

Boy or Girl?

December 3rd is when we have the sonogram to find out what we're having. Dale is impatient and was hoping we'd get to find out by Thanksgiving. What do you think it'll be? Joy says it's a boy. I think I felt the baby move for the first time last Thursday. That's one of the few things I like about pregnancy. Right now, I'm really not enjoying the stuffy nose, itchy tummy, sciatic nerve pain, and pretzle legs when I have to sneeze pregnancy syndromes.
Good luck to Obama. I didn't keep up much with the debates, so I don't know what the viewpoints of each candidate were. I just hope he is able to keep up with everything that is going on and I really hope that he's got good morals.
On Halloween we got one picture of the girls and it's not that good. If you look up "Ike and Jen's" blog you'll see a good picture of the kids. We couldn't find the camera after that initial bad Halloween picture. Last Saturday, we went horseback riding at a lady's house that Dale works with. The girls loved it! Especially Lucy! She had a big Lucy smile and DID NOT want to get off the horse. We still couldn't find the camera for this event, so unfortunately we don't have any pics.
