Merry Christmas!!

Here is our attempt to get the kids' pictures in their Christmas least they were having fun!!
Addison was SO happy to see his aunt Mimi back from college! He smothered her with hugs and kisses!

Laynie didn't take a nap...when I tried to put her down she told me over and over "I happy!"-- I guess from the picture it is evident that she was pretty happy...she did have an early bedtime though!

I love the look on their faces!!! They are 'reading' Polar Express, and Loving it!

Teriffic Twos!

Happy Birthday Laynie!!
Our little Laynie turned 2 today...Kelly and I can't believe she is already 2! We had a little family party for her where she got a "new" doll house (gotta love hand-me-downs from other little girls in the ward!), a princess outfit, and a Hello-Kitty CD player that she was immediately obsessed with! After all, it is PINK! (Thanks Nana!)
We Love You Laynie and are so happy you are part of our family! Happy Birthday to you!!

Here it is, the first picture of the newest addition to the Ditto family! We are proud to announce that at the end of April (or beginning of May) we will be a family of five! Everything looked good at the ultrasound today, although we had to promise the technician that we wouldn't sue her so that she would tell us what we were having! So, what's your guess? Boy or Girl? Well, let's just say Kelly is very afraid about being totally out numbered and having 3 girls to boss him around! I am excited for Laynie to have a little sister...I can already hear their fights over the truly important things like sharing clothes, bathroom time, etc. But, I'm sure they'll be more mature that I was with my sisiter! Name suggestions would be helpful-- I was sure this one was a boy, and I have a boy's name I love, but no ideas yet for a girl's name!

Santa Clause is coming!

What? November is over? When did that happen? Oh well, let the Christmas Craziness begin! We got our tree last week and I am pleased to say it's the nicest tree we've ever had! (Of course, it didn't cost $5 like last year's tree). As we were decorating it Addison said to me "Mom, I just love this time of year." It was so tender! I tried to say "me too" without getting so choaked up that I couldn't talk. That's what pregnancy does to me...I even got choaked up in the car the other day singing 'Let it Snow'...??
We took the kids to see Santa last weekend too. Addison was eager to tell him that he wants 'Gordon' for his Thomas Train set, and Laynie was into looking pretty as she got her picture taken!
I really do love this season, we have had Christmas music playing constantly (I entered some Christmas songs on Pandora, and walla- a new Pandora station!) It is so easy to always think of the Savior and the miracles of this life! MERRY CHRISTMAS!
