October Highlights and only 5 days till the due date!

I know it has been a month since I last posted. I am so sorry! To be honest my last month of pregnancy has been full of sleepless nights and just pure exhaustion with 3 other children to take care of! The house is clean and ready but the nursery is still not ready at all. We are hoping to
finish that up this week! It won't be fully decorated or have pictures hung until after she is born but we at least want to get the main things done like clean the carpet thoroughly, finish up the paint, and iron the new bedding and curtains before hanging them. I got a great deal on some crib bedding on ebay. It even came with the curtains, a diaper stacker, a toy bag, and a cute throw pillow to match. I didn't have to buy anything to go with it. It was a little nerve racking to bid on decor like that with only a picture to look at but I was very pleased when it came! I can't wait to post pictures of the nursery once it's all done. I don't think there is a whole lot that could be more fun for a woman than to decorate their little girls room or dress them up and put bows on them:-). Their room is of course PINK!

Here are some things that took place in the month of October. Enjoy!
I went to a baby shower for my good friend Kimmy Bears who is due the same time as me! This is her 5th baby and will make 5 boys for the Bears Family! We are delivering at the same hospital so hopefully we will be in there at the same time! I can't wait to meet baby Christopher!

We planned a family hike up to the Cascades and invited Nana and Pops to come along with us. It was beautiful! On October 10th we celebrated my precious husband's 26th Birthday! We had his grandfather, Charlotte and Nana over for dinner to celebrate. He chose everything on his menu and of course pecan pie for desert! It is hard for me to believe that he is 26 now. He is the most wise and mature 26 year old I have ever met and I am so proud of him! There aren't many 26 year olds out there that have the responsibilty of supporting a wife and 4 kids in the midst of getting a new business off the ground. I am so thankful for him and the love he has for his young family!

On October 11th some of my friends hosted a baby shower for Me at Katie Van Horns house. I have never seen such a big shower for a 4th baby. I was so grateful to everyone who came and blessed Mercy and I. My favorite part of the evening was when the guests took the time to pray for Mercy, myself and our family. Their prayers really ministered to me! Here is a photo of the girls who gave the shower.
I have some of the best friends a girl could have!and the greatest 2 Moms that a girl could have...Mrs. Rich & Mrs. Rich
Thankyou God! I know that it is ALL from You!
"Oh that men would give thanks to the Lord for His goodness, and for His wonderful works. " Psalm 107:8

Good to hear from you again. Praying for you as your time approaches, and hoping it's sooner rather than later. Praying you get at least one good night's sleep before Mercy gets here. Otherwise, you'll be even more exhausted! I can't imagine.

I am so excited for you!! It has been amazing to watch you and Daniel as a young couple who didn't clown around with life. You took it seriously. You know that it is precious, that your family is precious and that God has an amazing task for in raising a family for Him! It has been so encouraging to have ya'll to look up to.

America doesn't have high expectations for young people so we don't try meet what isn't there. But with you and Daniel, you became adults after you were children and raised the bar. The Bible doesn't ever talk about teens. There were children and adults. And you and Daniel are an amazing example of this! I hope and pray that I can be like ya'll!
Thank you for your example! Your in my prayers!
