As many of you know...we have been trying for baby #2 for almost 2 years. Monday this week we found out that I had a miscarriage. We had been hoping to tell everyone that we were expecting on Mother's Day. I had been given Chlomid to help fertility and it was our first month on it. The good news is it worked and we did concieve, but the bad news is that something went wrong and it stopped growing. Just nature as the Dr put it. Nothing we did...not the fertility meds, or anything to do with the past. In fact, the doctor (who is so cool. Glad I found him here.) is hopeful and thinks all is unrelated. He gives us two months and we can start over. It is a huge dissapointment, but as I look at it, we still have what is important in our lives. I have to have a D&C on Tuesday. Hope that helps things too. A clean start in there so to speak. :) Course I still have a week til the surgery and if my body catches up (so far it hasnt) then it wont be needed. But cross your fingers all goes well. I hate hospitals and doctors. Major white coat syndrome. :) (We didn't really tell anyone so don't feel neglected if you read this but hadnt heard it from our lips. Not the funnest news to deliver you know.) Just keep us in your prayers!

Happy Easter!

This is just a glimpse of our fun little Easter this year. For the last few years we have been in California for Easter, but this year the Easter Bunny found us at home, and he hid Emma's eggs and left her a fun basket full of goodies. She found all the eggs hidden around the yard (it was a beautiful sunny 60 degree morning) and then immediatley wanted to put on her new dress, shoes and headband (mommy made the headbands for Emma herself. hehe). Phil and I made a huge Easter brunch with eggs, bacon and sausage, and hashbrowns, etc. Yumo! Then we did what we do best. RELAX. haha. This year was General Conference so no church, but Emma has been learning about why we celebrate Easter. She can tell you the story of the atonement which for a 4 year old is incredible (at least I think so). We had an afternoon nap and then headed to Nana and Popo's for Easter dinner. Emma had a great time and is currently eating thru her candy. We hope everyone is well and had a very Happy Easter!
