Oh Baby!

March and April have been exciting and eye opening for us.  It is really starting to set in that a new baby is about to be at our house.  Allie Kate was a little concerned at first there was a baby in HER belly too :) I assured her the baby was just in mommy's belly.  Now she just thinks my big belly is funny!
Many dear friends showered our baby girl with a BEAUTIFUL baby shower.  She is already so loved and we are extremely grateful so many people celebrate their excitement with us.
 The bow making table.  Such a cute idea!
 Wishes for baby girl...

 The adorable diaper cake made by my sister-in-law, Emily!

The nursery is ready! Krista was sweet enough to offer Emma's pink crib, and Monkey Business came out to paint the wall.  I think it turned out PERFECT! Allie Kate loved the Shaw Brothers...she showed them her own painting, served them cupcakes from her kitchen and invited them to a dance party in her playroom.  They were good sports and played along.  When they left she blew them kisses and told them she loved them :)

 Our bags are packed for the hospital...
So is Allie Kate's!
We had family maternity pictures taken by Ashley Reece.  She did a GREAT job!
Hopefully we don't have much longer til our little miss makes her appearance! We are getting excited and Allie Kate can't wait to meet "her baby!"

Dashing through December

My parents took us to Disney World in December (just before Christmas)...what a WONDERFUL time!  It truly doesn't matter how old you are, Disney is a MAGICAL place for EVERYONE!  Allie Kate may not remember everything, but we will.  Watching her was priceless.  She loved every minute.  We will have to plan another trip soon!

Gotta love the pose with the foot up :)


 Princess Makeover!

Merry Christmas from the Andersons!
The day after Christmas, we had our ultra sound with Shanna at Stork Vision! Allie Kate had been right all was a "durl!" (GIRL)!  Daddy is going to have his hands full with three girls, but we can't wait to meet her in June.
Wishing everyone much happiness in the upcoming NEW YEAR!

Welcome 2013!

We are excited to welcome 2013!  Looks like another BUSY year with LOTS of new babies!!! So FUN to see our family growing.  Allie Kate could not be more excited for new cousins and awaiting the arrival of baby sister!
We celebrated  New Year's Even with Aunt Emily, Uncle "Jeffy," Cooper and Emmy!
It's 12 o'clock! A kiss for daddy...

In January we welcomed
Caleb Jeffery Anderson.
And in February...
Quinn Casey Rooney
 made his appearance!
Now that Allie Kate is the "BIG 3", she can play sports at the YMCA!  We signed up for basketball with Coach Carter and had a great time.  Cousin Paisley also played, along with two friends, Olivia and Cooper. Go BLUE THUNDER!

Our Valentine was ADORABLE! Kisses anyone?!
On February 27th, Clay's grandfather, CJ Anderson, went to be with the Lord. We will miss him but were blessed with his involvement in Clay's life growing up.  We are thrilled Allie Kate was able to know him and spend three years with him.  What a Godly example of a Christian man.

St. Patrick's Day Morning we snapped a couple pics in the backyard...with our GREEN flower of course!

We spent Easter going to church and with family.
