It's a BOY!

Today we had our ultrasound and found out that we are having another boy!  Mike is so excited that Emerson will be able to have a brother.  He is also excited because if we would have had a girl I would have wanted to be done.  Since that did not happen it will force us to try again to get a girl (not for a really long time).  I realize that I will be out numbered but I have two amazing boys in my life and I am excited for another.  I will also not have to buy everything all over again.  It would have been fun but since we are poor dental students it wouldn't have been as fun as it could be after dental school.  The doctor said everything looks perfect with the baby so far, we are feeling very lucky and thankful!

Other than that news, Mike just finished his first "semester" of dental school.  He did really good and worked really hard.  Now we are looking forward to his two week break especially because we are heading up to Utah on Saturday for our entire break...Yeah!!!!!!!

Our Fun Weekend!

This weekend started with Halloween.  We have never been big into Halloween but I have to admit I love dressing Emerson up and taking him around everywhere.  We took Emerson trick or treating at Mike's school.  He was scared to go up to the person and get the candy but as soon as they held out the bucket for him to choose from he knew right what to do.  He would grab a handful and run right back to us, it was so cute!  We also went to the Arizona Dental Association party.  The party had music playing and neon lights going all over the dance floor.  There were no adults dancing but kids were having a blast.  Emerson loved this part.  He ran all over the lights bouncing (dancing) up and down for a long time.  I forgot the video camera but tried to get some of it on our camera's video function.  The next day we left Phoenix and went to California with my family.  We had so much fun.  This was a much needed vacation for us all.  We met up with my aunt Diane on Saturday at California Adventure and Disneyland.  Mike could only stay for one day because he had to get back to school but it was so worth him going.  Emerson loved being there.  He wasn't crazy about most of the rides but loved the parade, climbing on everything in sight and being with my family again.  He did like Buzz Lightyear ride a lot and would even try to shoot the guns.  We took him on Pirates a couple times and each time got so scared when we went down the "dips".  The top picture is of him while going down the dip.  He never cried but obviously got very worried.  It was such a fun trip.  Thanks mom and dad for sponsoring this trip.  We had the best time!  Sorry this post is all over the place, I need to figure this blog thing out a lot better!
