Baby #3 is a...

Whiting Baby #3 is going to be a...
Monday November 2nd (the day that marks J & I's first date back in 2003) was the day we discovered we would be adding a sassy, spoiled, little tom-boy to our family. A perfect fit. The "Big Brothers" are ecstatic and the name tug-of-war is in full effect. Now our focus is PINK, bows, dresses 'n frills...we will leave it up to the "Bothers" to keep our buttercup from getting too girlie. More good news came at our visit when the Dr. talked to us regarding bed rest, puking, bleeding, etc. etc (our issues) and tests & ultrasounds have all come back and we are in the clear...delivery will be normal, baby is perfect, and prayers have been answered. We are truly blessed...and couldn't be more excited...can't you tell!?!

Halloween 2009

" Trick-Or-Treat, Smell my feet, Give me something good to eat!" This tune has been ringing through our ears all month long by one little 5 year old that rules our roost. Halloween was filled with parties, cookies - caramel apples - candies, and 2 little super heroes saving the day in our house. 1st stop on Halloween- Team "Big Red's" last soccer game, 2nd stop-Sydney's 5th birthday party, 3rd stop- showing off Batman & Spider man at the Merrells house, 4th stop- the ward Trunk-Or-Treat party, and stop #5, the last stop of the night- at Grandma 'n Grandpa Smith's house for one last doorbell ring and "Trick-Or-Treat." Our Halloween equaled fun, sugar, sugar, and more sugar. Can't wait till next year...along with our new addition.

Soccer 2009

Soccer 2009 existed of a team of 13 players, 3 head coaches, and a random number of winning games this season. Team "Big Red" had a fun time running, kicking, and chasing the ball up 'n down & back again on the soccer field. Mr. JCrew had more than his fair share of good times playing on the field. Whether he was positioned at forward, defender, or goalie...he came with his game face on, his dad coaching by his side, and his fan club cheering him and the rest of the team on along the sidelines. Way to go Team "Big Red" on a fun season.
