September Recap

Paul at the fair

Brigham had his first field trip to the LA County fair and I had a total panic attack about someone snatching him, so what did I do??? I stalked his class! I wanted to be a chaperon but I was too prego and I had Paul. I told my mom I was going and she insisted on going with me (thanks mom) so she got up at 6:30 am and drove down to meet me. While we were there we got some cute pictures of Paul. He had a blast, my panic attack worked out great for him :) This was about 1 week before the baby was born.

My kids are so lucky to have such a fun grandma!

Paul with the goats - he loved them!

Fishing with Chad & Heather

On September 19 & 20 Chad and Heather invited us to go to Big Bear to go fishing with them. They got us a super sweet deal at their timeshare so we stayed the night and got up early to go fishing! It was so much fun! The kids had a blast with their cousins an it was nice to spend some time with Chad and Heather and my dad and mom. I think this might have been what put me into labor because I started having contractions the next day.

Me, Heather and Grandma on the boat with the kids.

Grant caught the first fish!! He was so cute!
All the kids (except Drew)

Our 9 year Anniversary

Our anniversary was 2 days after the baby was born so we decided to celebrate by going to lunch at The Corner Bakery. I was supposed to plan our anniversary this year but just got a little busy =)

I love the Corner Bakery! I always get the
Chicken Pommadori. If you haven't had it go get
it now! We had such a good time. Paul and little
Ben were so well behaved. I guess that was their
little anniversary gift to us!

I bought the cake at the restaurant, took the apple
cider and glasses the hospital gave us and the flowers
my parents brought and had a sweet little dessert with
my sweetheart =)

I Love My Family

I have the best family! My mom, sister, sisters in law and cousins had a shower for me at Olive Garden. Katie planned it (thanks Katie) before I had the baby but when he came 2 weeks early we had to push it back. It was alot of fun and I got some great stuff! It was nice to have the baby there for everyone to see :)

L to R : Sierra, Susan, David, Jackie, Katie, Autumn, Me, baby Ben
and Gina, Kimberly, Mom.

More really cute stuff!!
So that was pretty much my month of September in a nutshell!! Hope you enjoyed!

I got this little video of Paul today. I was watching the kids while Summer went to the store and I lost track of Paul for a minute. I was looking all over the house and then went out back to find him. I called out his name and his little head popped out of the top of this tree and said "What!" He promptly came back down so I made him climb back up so I could get it on camera. Some of you moms with weak stomachs might want to look away. Anyway, for your enjoyment.

Baby Benjamin is Here!

We are so excited to announce that Benjamin Michael Davis was born Monday September 22 ( 2 weeks early). He weighed only 6 lb 4 oz, our smallest baby yet! It was BY FAR my easiest delivery. We were admitted to the hospital at 3:00pm and he was born at 7:42pm. He is such a sweet baby and his brothers absolutely adore him! Paul is still warming up to him so as soon as we have pics with him we'll post them! =D

I know some of you are wondering what the heck happened to Luke or Porter right?? Well we decided that since neither one of us wanted the others choice we would decide on something we both really liked....Benjamin! We'll probably use Luke or Porter the next time around, but they just didn't feel right this time. We actually decided on his name when they admitted us into the hospital 3 hours before he was born!

We'll post more pictures soon!

Girls weekend!!!

For the last 2 years I have planned a "girls weekend" with my sister, sisters in law, my mom and all my Cali cousins. This year was sooooo much fun! We stayed at Todd and Kristen's house and I hired 2 message therapists and an was heaven!! We all got facials ad messages, we sat in the hot tub and gabbed and ordered Olive Garden for dinner, YUMMM! We all brought our "favorite things" and shared them with each other so we got to leave with a nice goody bag full of fun stuff! We stayed up chatting till 3:30 am, got up and had a delicious breakfast, got dressed and headed out for shopping, movies and dinner! Everyone needs a fun getaway like this! I felt so rejuvenated when I got home! It was so nice to have this relaxing getaway before the baby comes! Thanks to my family for coming and making this such a fun weekend! I love you guys! And thanks to all our wonderful hubbies for watching the kids so we could have our "time out".

This is our Saturday Group Shot
