First, I just have to say how smart I am! Well, a little behind the rest of you but I was so excited to figure out how to put some wallpaper (is that what it's called?) up. And I did it all by myself. Yeah for me!
Aliva got two dolls for Christmas and she insists one of Amber's is also hers, and she is constantly seen trying to carry all of them at the same time. If only she liked real babies that much. She is getting to a very jealous stage and I worry for our next one. She is in for a rough time.
Alyssa and Christian both participated in their spelling bee and did good but got out fairly quickly. The pressure was pretty intense. There was a stage, an audience, 4 judges and a microphone. I was probably more nervous than they were. But Scott sure was proud of having the Thompson name twice in the program. He even left work to watch both of them. He didn't even take off work while I was in the hospital!
Just to rub it in a little to those of you buried in the snow, we have been to the park a couple times in the last week--without jackets. It's been so nice. Gotta love Arizona!

Christian's Tooth

Christian finally lost his first tooth. He was a real man about it. He kept begging us to pull it out because he had plans for that dollar the tooth fairy was going to give him. In fact, he's been waiting for quite awhile for it to fall out. Before Christmas he was asking for a green bike. I told him it cost a lot, about 65. He asked 65 what? I said 65 dollars. He thought about that for a minute and then asked, how many teeth do I have? Anyway, now Amber is very excited for her teeth to get loose.
It is nice now that school has started and the routine is going again. Alyssa and Christian are both in the spelling bee at school next week. I thought they were going to be competing against each other, but they are too many grades apart. We did Amber's preschool at our house this week and it was fun. Alivia LOVES nursery. She doesn't even wait for us to go in. As soon as she knows where she is she runs in. It's cute, and oh so nice. Although I feel very selfish just sitting by myself through Sunday School and Relief Society. It's been 6 years, though. Scott is going to play basketball tonight with a league and he's very nervous. He went and bought some new shoes last night to help his game. It's so cute that he's worried about how he's going to do.
Hope you are all well and good luck to all those with babies coming soon! There are so many! I'm jealous!
Oh, and I realize I forgot to post that we are having another girl. Scott is working through his disappointment.
