Drum Roll Please . . .

Yes, it is now official! All of you who were wondering why Robin was "letting herself go" lately should be ashamed of yourselves. I mean, really!!! Yep, this family of 3 boys is adding another one to the mix. And since we really wanted to mix things up, why not add a GIRL to this house of testosterone? You guessed it, the King's will be welcoming a new little girl the first week of July this year. We are all excited (especially Jeff who has been wanting me to be wrong every time I told him our last 3 would be boys). Well, I am more than happy to be wrong about this one (although secretly I had already bought a few girl things...)
So here are the first "portraits" of baby girl King (see if you can find the one where she is resting her cute little hand on her face - modeling for the shot!):

Goodbye 2009, Hello 2010!

So I promised this year that I would journal more so I have decided to do some of that journaling here so that I can keep my family and friends caught up as well. We had a great Christmas in East Wenatchee, WA this year and were spoiled by the LuBean's and the King's when we got back. Santa was very kind this year! Henry loves his easy-bake oven (hey, it looks very man-like in blue and silver), tech decks (little skateboards), transformers, paperoni, and he inherited Jeff's DS (with over 30 new games, thanks to Shae and David's ingenuity!). Elijah was spoiled with Thomas the train tracks, trains, books, bedding, and clothes. He also loves his cars (thanks to Wendy's family and Grandma and Grandpa). Trevor recieved a bunch of cute cars he still carries with him everywhere he goes. He loves his vacuum, MP3 Player, blocks, puzzles, and books. Jeff's Aunt Lucy and Uncle Mike found great soft blankets for the kids. Along with the ones Grandma and Grandpa LuBean bought them, the kids should be sleeping very well soon (if we could only keep Elijah and Henry in their beds at night!). Jeff and I got spoiled as well. Jeff recieved a PS3 which he is excited about games and Bluerays already. He also got clothes, books, and movies. I got some great books, the Bullet blender, pans, lotions, games, and some boots!

Robin at Temple Square with the Young Women

Our plans this year are to have more family time and one-on-one time (husband/wife time and mommy/son & father/son dates). I am super excited to get one-on-one time with everyone in the family. We are excited about our LuBean Family Reunion in June this year in Idaho. We miss the seeing Wendy & James and Whitney & Adri's families. I can't wait!

This year has lots in store for us and I hope to be able to keep you all in loop!
