Ok we had a huge fun weekend and I didn't take one picture!! Since this is my family journal I thought I would at least type about what we did for postarity sakes. Shaylar put in the bubbler system and we planted flowers and shrubs in the front yard. It took all Friday and we were filthy!! Then our friends Keith and Raunlyn West came over with their kids and we played Rock Band. It was pretty fun and I'm impressed with those kids that can really rock!! Saturday Shaylar finished the bubbler system and Tim our electrician came over and put in the pendant lights above our bar. They picked out the lights and I must say when they are on it looks like Harley Davidson fire flames.....don't know if I like them!! Ha-I'll wait a while then switch them out! Also Shaylar is trading out some landscaping so a couple of guys worked outside flattening the ground around the playsystem to prepare for a brick enclosure. I'm so excited! Then Saturday night we went over to Becky and Phil Strattens house to watch the UFC fight with Paige and Trec Reidhead and their extended family. Good fight - St. Pier has the best body and won. We also had the best food- thanks!! Sunday I slept in until about one! When I got up Shaylar and the kids cleaned the entire house and had food ready. It was amazing-I almost cried!! Anyway we all stayed home from church and hung out really doing nothing. Sometimes its really nice to just hang out and not go anywhere. Well its Mondays and back to the old grind!!!! weekend

This picture was taken by my sweet mother-in-law Marsha when we got home from the hospital. Its similar to the one I posted earlier but the look on Easton's face is hilarious! "Holy Crap I'm surrounded by girls!!!" Marsha was with me my final week of pregnancy I was so big and awkward just lifting my leg to get in bed hurt. If it wasn't for her help I think my neighbors would of called CPS cause Taylor would of never made it to school and Paige and Easton would of wondered the streets in their pajamas!! Ha! Ha! Brinley's birth was great timing cause Marsha and my Mom were both there, Shaylar made the dental conference (Marsha stayed home with me while Barry and Shaylar went to the dental convention in Phoenix. I think I would of died without her help! I told her between all her service she has given to Kelly and me that her house will sell!), and I was able to go to Keith and Charayye's Open House. Hooray! Thank you Grandma Hatch for everything!!!!!!!.....I hear Brin starting to wake up so see you later!

My parents have had Paige and Easton at their house in the valley for the past week so I can get some rest after having little Brinley. THANK YOU MOM AND DAD!!!!! This past week has been so nice to be able to relax. Taylor has been a fantastic help and wonderful big sister. I can tell she really loves Brinley. I can't tell you mom and dad how thankful I am that you did this for me. I know you are exhausted-my kids can be crazy!!! Well everyone is home again and I can tell that my life is going to get really busy really quick and I'm starting to panic. I get these overwhelming feelings that I'm not going to be able to pull this off-am I hormonal? -probably but I know with the Lord's help I can do this.

I need to add fun stuff to my blog like music and videos but I don't know how. Keep in touch and hopefully I'll have figured it out-I'm going to call my sister Truly.

I've been watching American Idol and I know I'm not the only one who was absolutely shocked when Michael Johns was kicked off last week -ARE YOU VOTING? Anyway, this is my pick for the final three: (Michael Johns would of been number four!)
David Cook
David Archuleta

Dudley is home!!!!!!!!

Dudley disapeared while we were in the valley last weekend. I figured someone 'stole' him beacuse he was so cute. We were all devistated. I put up neon yellow signs with his picture on it, called the Human Society, checked the Pound, called animal control, placed flyers in walmart and all the local vet offices. I was getting ready to take flyers to all the dog groomers when a man called and said he had Dudley!!!!! His wife saw one of the signs. They were so nice and I'm soooo thankful!!!!!!

Its a girl!

Brinley Shaylynn Hatch was born April 2, 2008! She was two weeks early and was 8 pounds 21 inches long-thanks goodness she came early! We didn't know what we were having by choice and it was so much fun. I highly recommend it-better than Christmas. Well everything went really smooth after I got my epidural and she was out in three pushes.

Hello baby girl!
Oh how I love her! Fat and healthy - I'm so blessed

The kids were so excited to finally hold her. They were not allowed to see me in the hospital because they said we were on the tail end of RSV season. My beautiful children!Isn't she beautiful?
