We went in to the hospital around 7 Sunday morning and things got started around 8. Peyton made her grand entrance at 2:05. Things went great. Getting induced it was great to only have a 6 hour labor. Peyton was 8'7" and 21 inches long. For two weeks early she was a big baby. Of course we have to have a little drama. Derek noticed a few hours after that she wasn't using her left arm very much. Come to find out her collar bone was broken during delivery. I guess it is pretty common in big babies. The doctor said it will heal fine and after a few weeks we won't even notice it. For now she just lets us know if we touch her wrong. We are so thankful for a beautiful baby girl and that everything went so great. The boys love her and are excited to be big brothers!

Princess Peyton's Room

So the nursery is finally done. I think it turned out good. I am happy with it. Thank you Derek for all the hard work. He made the wooden window valance, painted the crib, and touched up all of my not so great paint job. Love you honey. My neighbor down the street made the cute Princess Peyton sign and my sister in law Amy painted the beautiful pictures.

I was supposed to be going to a Primary Presidency meeting a couple of weeks ago and showed up to a surprise baby shower. Tara had planned it and it was a complete surprise. I would have dressed up a little nicer if I would have known :) Thank you Tara for planning it and all the work you put into it. Thank you Sushelle for the yummy cinnamon rolls and MyrLynn for the muffins. Thank you everyone who came. It was so much fun to get cute girl things. 2 weeks from tomorrow and we will hopefully have Peyton here :)

Here are some pictures from Easton's Birthday party with his cousins Ashton and Carter and his friend Koby. We had pizza played the Wii, went to Randy's Tumbling, and then Ashton and Carter spent the night. The boys had so much fun at Randy's they were so sweaty and their little faces were so red by the time we left. Let's just say don't go there on a Friday night. It is middle school night and there were about 100 middle schoolers running around.

Derek built a basketball court in the basement and Cannon absolutely loves to go down there and play. Here is a little video of him. I think he is going to be pretty good or at least his Dad does :) Sorry can't figure out how to turn it the right way.
