Was Justin's main response when we found out we are having a boy! As for me I was crying, and asked twice if the ultrasound tech could make sure.  I'm not a cryer at all, in fact I don't think I cried with either of the girl's ultrasounds, and I didn't cry when they were born.  I didn't even cry when Justin proposed to me (but he did) :) I seriously love my two girls.  They make me smile and laugh everyday, and I'm so grateful for them, but even as a teenager, I always pictured myself with boys, not girls, so the news that we will be having a long awaited boy was really cool. The tech was able to tell within the first 20 seconds that we are having a boy, he wasn't shy at all! lol. We were able to get a 3d ultrasound, which I had never have before.  He doesn't really look like an adorable baby yet, but I'm hoping that will change :) He definitely has Justin's lips and my nose, but that was the only familiar things I could pick out from the pictures. He has been quite the mover already, and I love feeling him kick and squirm throughout the day, and especially at night. Justin is just happy that we aren't going to be one of those families with all girls.  We have had several people tell us "oh you just seem like the type of family that's going to be all girls. " And all I can think about when people say that is the teenage years..yikes..that's going to be crazy enough with two teenage girls. Anyway, we are so thrilled to be having a boy, I can't wait to start getting all of the hand me downs from my nephew out..(is it to early to start washing and putting them in a dresser for him) Can't wait!
In other news, Justin and I celebrated our 7 year anniversary on October 8th.  Well we didn't really celebrate too much, we just put a new roof on our house so that took a good chunk of money, and we couldn't justify doing anything too crazy, but we went out to dinner, and ice cream (Because I really like food especially right now) while my brother and sis in law watched the girls.  We had a great time!

In case you haven't heard

We are having another baby! Pretty excited about it.  Baby #3 is due 3/3/13.  We find out on tomorrow morning what we are having.  I have come to terms with the fact that the baby is probably a girl...but it would be nice to have a boy somewhere in our mix. I don't like taking pictures of myself when I'm pregnant, but I do have updated pictures of my family.  I'm so glad that it's finally fall.  It was a hot summer, and we don't have AC, which means I feel sick anytime I am too hot. Besides not feeling great, we had a pretty low key and fun summer. We have moved Rozlyn to a toddler bed.  She is still adjusting.  Last night she called Mommy out, and 2am, and she was half asleep on the hardwood floor.  Then at 6am, she started panicking so I go in her room, and she somehow got stuck underneath the 6 inches between her bed and the floor, with her two blankets.  Like all the way under..I still don't know how that happened. I had to lift the bed to get her out.  Roz is hilarious, and always making us laugh and smile, but she is a little terror.  She bites, kicks, and hits all of us, and Lexi's friends! She is starting to talk quite a bit, saying things like: outside, Lexi, juice, auntie, Lei Lei, Mine, and many of the basics.  Lexi can write her first and last name by herself, and is getting really close to reading a few simple words. She goes to dance, gymnastics, and preschool.  Here are a few pictures from the past couple months:

                                 Justin with his brothers the night of his mission call to Pennsylvania

                                                                       Before church
                                    Into my waterproof mascara, it took a while to get it all off

                  The three amigos, they totally did this themselves, so I hurried and grabbed the camera
