It was kind of cool and we were glad we didn't have to go anywhere (especially to the hospital!). It melted pretty quickly by after the sun came out. There are spots that refroze last night, but this morning was much safer driving!
Carli and her new dolly from Kate
She got a new Dora bed set and here is her face when Daddy brought in the big Dora comforter.Of course, we had to set it all up that night! She loves it!

Swept the kitchen floor
Did Megan's laundry
Washed and dried two sleeping bags
Washed and dried a couple pillows
Wiped down all the cupboard doors in the kitchen
Kept up with the kitchen (rinsing, loading, washing dishes)
Watched a movie with my girls (Barbie, of course)
Had dr. appt. (maybe dialated to 1, all is well)
Made jello for dinner
Actually made dinner!
Walked to the park and the girls played for a while, walked home
Took friend out for a birthday outing
Made list of what to do tomorrow!
With Carli being so early 3 years ago I've been ready for anything. I realized Sunday I have not been this pregnant for 6 years, since I was pregnant with Megan. I never got to the point where I was extremely uncomfortable with Carli so this has been a little different the last couple of weeks. I saw a picture of a newborn baby girl this morning and just had this overwhelming feeling of wanting little Brooke here and I want to hold her and snuggle her now! If I don't go into labor before next Monday then we'll schedule an induction at my appt. that day. I'm really hoping it doesn't come to that because of a bad experience with pitocin and the epidural. I just hope all goes well and naturally and quickly!
So, I don't want this post to be whiney, but I'm so ready to have our little girl here!!! I better head to bed since it's back to school tomorrow. I'll update when there is any news. :) Countdown on the right is down to 14 days--YAY!

We had a fun day today! She woke up and yelled from the top of the stairs, "It's my bir-day!" She was so excited. :) What fun it is when they realize that it is their special day and they are so happy. She requested donuts for breakfast.
She wanted to go to McD's with her friends for lunch, so we invited some of her little friends to come have lunch with us, play, and have cupcakes. It was totally fun and the moms got some fun time, too (we love to just get together and chat!). My cousin, Stephanie, came with her little baby, Eliza. Isn't she just the most adorable little thing! We're glad you guys could be there!Steph took a picture with me in it to prove that I was there. :) It's nice to be in front of the camera once in a while. lol
Carli enjoyed opening all the fun gifts her friends brought.
Our attempt at getting a group shot.
Another attempt. I have about 12 pictures very similar to this. Ha!
Hanging out at home under her blanket watching PBS Kids and just vegging after the party.We were all out and about tonight so we didn't do a family party, but that will come and will post pics in the next couple days! Mom gave that adorable polka-dot dress and leg warmers for Carli and it was the perfect birthday dress for the day. She loves it!

I'm feeling pretty good so I'm not betting on Brooke making her appearance any time soon. I was getting some good contractions (not regularly) the last couple weeks, but the last couple of days have been pretty quiet. I'm hoping for the long weekend this month so I don't have to worry about getting the kids to and from school while I'm in the hospital. Carli was nice enough to do that for me so maybe this one will be, too. I am so looking forward to this sweet baby girl to be here!
Here's another awful self-portrait, but you get the idea of the belly. :)

Monday was such a beautiful day that we couldn't stay indoors. We went to the park to enjoy the warm weather (when you've got more than a foot of snow at home in Utah you would love to enjoy the 75 degree weather, too!). Brett, my brother, was having a little bit of a hard time adjusting to the warm. He thought it was warm to be so warm in December. lol! :)
As soon as we got to the park the ice cream truck pulled up and, of course, Grandma couldn't resist the cries of "I want ice cream!" from the grandkids and they got their treat. Here are Brett, Carli, and Kate enjoying their treats.
Grandma helped Carli on the monkey bars. She really is a monkey when it comes to climbing and swinging.
