Pumpkin Farm Adventures!!

Considering there is only 1 pumpkin farm here in St. George and surrounding areas, it really wasn't as crowded as we had anticipated. The girls had a blast with all the different activities they had going on at the farm; especially being able to pick out their own pumpkin to take home and carve... It was a fun day at the farm!!

"Happy Helper" Emma

Emma had a big day on Friday at Pre-school. She was the "Happy Helper" for a day. She was able to take the "Happy Helper" bunny (aka: Flower) home with her for a few days. She had fun taking Flower shopping, swimming (Flower watched), and to the park. She was sad to take her back to school but she had fun helping the teacher the rest of the day. She also got to bring in her favorite little stuffed kitty for sharing time as well as share cookies with the rest of her classmates. She had such a blast.

Our First House Guests!!

Michele (my cousin) and her 2 kids came down to visit us for the weekend. They had missed us as we had missed them and thus had planned a fun filled weekend to get together with the kids down here at our new place. The kids had a blast (even though we got rained out on Saturday). We made the most of it though...

Gage & Lilly are SOO funny when they get together. As you can see, Gage is SUPER patient at times with Lilly; even more so to where he'll let her clean his nose for him... What a fruitcake. They loved playing catch and throw in our kitchen and especially enjoyed chasing eachother around the house. They had so much fun.
Considering we were rained out on Saturday, we decided to check out the much raved about dinosaur musuem here in St. George... (yeah, sorry, it really wasn't much let alone THAT fun for the kids). But we got some great pictures.
Of course the big attraction was going and seeing the horses. We were a little better equipped this time with carrots and so ALL the horses were a little more apt to coming over and seeing what was going on. Shelby sure wasn't afraid... she was even into hugging and kissing the big animal. Gage and Lilly of course were still afraid they were going after their toes and not the carrots... Besides seeing the horses, the kids enoyed swinging on rope & stick in our neighbors yard. Even Lilly got into the "swing" of things. We had such a great time....

Thanks for coming and spending some time with us. It made us feel a little more at home!!

Surprise!! Surprise!! Can you guess??

Well, happy news all around I guess... We've known for sometime, we've just really been stressed with the job not panning out; finding another one that would work and then moving and getting settled. It's been absolutely crazy. But, we're 100% sure now we're expecting.... (It's become happier news now knowing we'll be covered and not so jobless as we thought).. Anyhow. Due sometime the beginning of May, we look forward to adding another to the Dial Clan. We're not sure yet if we want to know what we're having (as either way we're sure we'll be just fine) but I don't know if I can handle 9 months of not knowing what to expect (Do I finally get my boy or are we to add another girl to the wish list of Emma & Lilly). I was asking Emma the other day what she wanted, a baby brother or baby sister. She sat, almost thinking for a moment and then said, "Um, I want another baby sister." A few months previous, out of the blue she told me, without me nudging or asking, "Mommy, I want another sister." (I wonder if that was after her and Lilly had gotten into that day or what...) Either way we'll be sure to let everyone know what we decide. Oh Happy Days....
