He's Here!

Cameron Elwood Carey
8 Lbs.
21.5" long

Little Cameron finally arrived Thursday night at 10:24. It was a rough day. They started me at about 9:00 in the morning, but the poor little guy just didn't want to come on his own. The cord was wrapped around his neck, and he was facing the wrong way so he wouldn't finish dropping all the way. After trying all day to get me dilated all the way, the doctor decided to do a C-section. He had a fever for some reason too, but he is doing well now. They had him hooked to an IV for the first couple of days and he is in great shape now. He loves to sleep ALL day long and thinks he should be awake at night. His big brothers think he is great and I have a feeling that we are going to have to watch Jay like a hawk around him. I am pretty sore right now and am looking forward to a few weeks of rest before I try to do too much other stuff around the house. There will be more pictures to follow soon I am sure.

Still Waiting

We are still waiting for this baby to come. I shouldn't complain, since my due date is not until the 27th, and it's only the 14th. But my doctor is inducing me on the 18th (Thursday), so I am a bit antsy waiting around for Thursday to come. My other two boys were nowhere near early, so I am happy that my doctor is starting me early, I should just be greatful for that. Kev's parents are coming on Tuesday so they will be around to watch the kids while we are at the Hospital. We are excited for them to come, and then the next week my parents are going to come and spend Christmas with us. Who doesn't want to spend Christmas in Bancroft Idaho? We have gotten some snow here finally, so it looks like we can at least have a white Christmas for all of our company. Well, wish me luck on Thursday, and my next post should be about new baby Carey!

Tyler's Christmas Concert

Tyler had his first big school concert last night. He was so excited and luckily it was only 45 min. long. ( It was for the kindergarten-4th grade) His class went on the stage first, and on his way up the stairs he trips and loses his shoe. So we have to wait while the teacher puts his shoe back on him. I immediately turn to Kevin and say, "Really? WE have the kid that falls during the concert? Really?!" Oh, well. Apparently the girl behind him stepped on his shoe on the way up the stairs. Whatever. He did a great job and now maybe he will stop singing the songs as he runs around the house.So excited for his big night!

Jay enjoying the magical sounds of winter. (as magical as they can be when sung by 5-8 year olds.)

Here he is in his santa hat singing "Too fat for the chimney". He is the one in the middle with white shirt and green tie.

And singing the reindeer song. again, he's the one in the middle.
I do have to say that the kindergarteners where the cutest. After they were done with their songs we were graced by 1st graders with recorders, and then 2-4th graders with guitars and violins. I will say that for kids that young they were actually pretty good. Well, Happy Holidays to all! Hopefully I will get to post about a new baby sometime soon-only 1 week to go!

Birthday, Thanksgiving and Christmas Decorating

It's been awhile since my last post. We have had a lot going on since then. Kevin turned the big 31, we went to Idaho Falls for Thanksgiving and decorated our house for Christmas. Needless to say, I am tired and don't want to leave my house again until this baby comes. Here are a few pictures for your viewing pleasure.
Kevin turned 31 on November 25th. We had a small birthday party at home with just us and the boys, and it was a pretty relaxing night. He got a new sweatshirt, a new jacket and a chest pack for fishing. I think he was fairly pleased, but I think he liked his cherry cheesecake the best.Next came Thanksgiving. we spent the weekend in Idaho Falls with Kev's family. His sister Kim just bought a house there and she had plenty of room for everybody. It was a lot of fun, and a lot of good food. This is the only picture I have from the weekend. Kev's sister Kim gave him these "daddy and me" aprons for his birthday. So Tyler and him sported them while they made some sushi. We also braved the crowds for the day-after-Thanksgiving sales. It was early, and it was tiring, and it was crowded, but we made it. I spent a ton of money on socks at Fred Meyer and finished up what little shopping I had left, so I suppose it was a productive morning. We'll see if it is something I do again next year. (5 am is VERY early.) I will say how proud I am of Kevin. I showed him something I wanted in one of the ads, and he went (at 5 a.m.) and waited in line for an hour for my present. I think he had to hit the busiest store of the morning. But he was a trooper, and got the last one that was in stock. Thanks Kev!
This picture is from Thanksgiving, too. Tyler put on grandpa's glasses and we thought he looked like "Ralphie" from the movie "A Christmas Story". What does anyone else think?Yesterday we put up our Christmas decorations. My camera batteries were dead, so this picture is actually from today. The boys love having the house decorated, and Jay can't keep his hands off of the ornaments and candy canes. Hopefully everything stays intact until Christmas. Now we are just waiting for the baby to come. Only two 1/2 weeks to go! We can't wait, thankfully all of our Christmas preparations are done, so now all we have to do is sit and wait and enjoy the Holidays.
