Baby and Moving

Just wanted to let everyone know that we closed on the new house last Wed., moved Thurs. through Sunday and then Alex decided to come on Monday. I started with contractions at about 10 but they were mild so we continued getting the house ready until late afternoon when I started to hurt badly and the contractions were getting closer faster. I called Heath at 5 and told him to meet me at the hospital and my mom drove me and the kids there. We got in about 5:15 and had the baby at 6:33 all natural. I will post pictures soon. They just hooked up our phone and internet today. His name is Alexander Joseph Johnston "Alex" and he was 8 lbs 8 oz. and 19 1/2 inches.

For Heath on Father's Day

so happy on daddy's shoulder. Sam just adores his daddy. He goes through phases when he cries when daddy leaves for work. I am so glad he has such a good male role model!
holding Leah in the hospital. I love how excited Leah gets when daddy comes home. She loves it when he cuts the grass. She tries to follow the lawnmower and wave to daddy.
cuddly Katelyn loves her daddy.
Brianna's favorite dress up, time will go by too fast and Heath will be walking her down the aisle.
Heath is so easy going and supportive of everything we do. I couldn't ask for better. How lucky we are!

Myrtle Beach 2009

Look at my amazing 85 year old grandma who was carrying kids, beach chairs, and having a great time with her great grandchildren. She helps us with a wonderful vacation when we visit her in Myrtle Beach. This hotel had a lazy river and silly submarine, and lots of pools. We had so much fun!! Wish we could have stayed longer but we had to come home and get packed. We are moving in 2 weeks into a new house that is new construction which means a lot to buy and do. We are having a baby in 3-4 weeks also so things are so crazy.

We couldn't keep Leah out of the water. Her first reaction to the ocean was trying to pull me in way over her head. She sat down in the ocean and was splashed by a big wave and just tried to walk in further. I had to have Heath take her after a while because I couldn't hold her out of the deep parts much longer. None of the kids were scared this year and they had a great time.

Look at Brianna, she asked daddy to take a picture of her next to the tree, what a pose!

Happy 4th Birthday Katelyn

Katelyn turned 4 on May 31st. She was so excited!! We got home from a weekend away and made the cake an hour before eating it so it barely had time to cool and was a little warm and sagging. We left for the beach 2 days later so I will have those pics. up soon. We also sold our house about 3 weeks ago and bought a new house just this week. We are still working out the details and the builder will be finishing it up until our closing on June 24th.
