Friday morning my friend Suz and I decided to brave the crowds and get in on some sweet deals. The first store we hit was ShopKo. They opened at 5 a.m. so we were there about 5:45. The line to get in was half way around the store, but I was enjoying all of it. I had no expectations at all. We then headed over to Target because they opened their doors a 6. After two successful places, we headed over to Kohls for a quick peek and then up to Layton to hit Toys R Us. I have to say, for my first experience doing this, it was fun. I found some really great deals on toys that I wanted for both of my kids, and some movies for Ty. I don't know if I will be up for it again next year, but it was fun. We didn't get back home until around 10 and we had a great time!
I did not take this picture, but the line at Target was similar to this one! People are crazy!! (I know, I am too, because I was there.)

Humanitarian Efforts put to good use

My dad brought these little newborn beanies home from the humanitarian center. We were just testing them to make sure they would keep a baby's head warm...or a kitty's.

Zach brought home his book orders from school today and the kids were so excited. Among the books was a very cute book for Brooklyn titled "Pinkalicious." If you haven't read this book, it is about a little girl who eats too many pink cupcakes and she turns pink. Brooklyn absolutely loved the book.

So, We decided to make pink cupcakes and see if she was going to turn pink.

Her favorite part was when the little girl said "I'm Pinkerbell!"
The book even came with a pink wand! Which, of course, Brooklyn thought was great.

NOT Indiana Jones

This morning Zach came and got in bed with me. We were having a nice little chat and the subject turned to what he thought we should name our baby. We were laughing and saying, Nemo, Buzz Lightyear, Woody, Simba, etc. He then said Indiana Jones. I said, Yeah! let's do it, that would be awesome! Zach got so upset and said no! I said yes, we will call him little Indy! Zach was on the verge of tears. He told me that all the kids at school would make fun of him because his brother would have a much cooler name than him. I was laughing so hard at this! He also said that his brother would be way cooler because Indy is a much better name than Zach. I had to calm him down and tell him that we wouldn't name him Indiana. Then Brooklyn came in a loved the idea of naming the baby Indiana Jones and Zach was all upset again.

We just can't have a sibling cooler than Zach.

14 Weeks and....

I went in for my check up today and my doc asked me if I wanted to see what I was having. I said, "seriously?" So we did a quick little ultrasound and there were his little man parts in plain view. I was so excited to find out so early! I was kind of leaning towards a boy and I am sooo excited. The doctor said he was about 75% sure and we will have a better look in about six weeks when I go back for the real ultrasound. When I told Zach he was going to have a little brother the look on his face was priceless. He said "I've always wanted a brother!!" So now you can all put your two cents in for names, however, I am pretty set on William. It is my father's name and Tyson's middle name. We would call him Will, definitely not Bill, sorry Dad. I am just a little relieved to not have another little diva running around the house.
