Vote in our baby name poll

I know we have awhile, but are tossing around names for our baby girl. As you know Brad and I don't stick with traditional spellings and names, but here are a few we are thinking about.

Wynter Grace -Wynter not only is this baby going to be born in the Winter, but I think of a dark haired girl when I hear this name. I just like Y's in names, and I like the way it looks spelled with a Y. I also like names having to do with nature. Grace is a family name, my mom's favorite aunt was Grace, and she was a role model for her. My mom and I have always told each other to "have grace" when we are having problems. Is it too close to Ryker though?

Paisley Alizabeth- Paisley I love the spelling, and all 3 of my girls have i's and y's in their names. I think Paisley Perkins sounds so cute, and think of a little spunky, out-going little girl. Alizabeth, I just like the spelling, kind-of like Alyvia.

Violet Alizabeth (?), -Not sure of the middle name, but I do like the two together. Any suggestions? My favorite color is purple, and if she is born in February, she'll have a purple birthstone. I could go crazy with this one. My other girls kind-of have names that have do with color (Jade, Sage, Ivy), either in their first or middle names.

Dahlia Grace (?)-Dahlia is Brad's favorite name, not sure why but it is growing on me, and it is a shade of purple too. Not sure of a middle name, but Grace sounds cute with it doesn't it.

Here are other possibilites for either a first or middle name. Please give suggestions....
Irelyn, Gracelyn, Brielle, Arabella, Arwyn,

8 Days in Southern California, glad to be home!

We just got back from an 8 day trip to Southern California. We had all 6 kids, plus Jaidyn's friend Jake. We spent 3 days in Disneyland, 2 days in Vegas, coming and going, 1 day at the beach, and 1 day in Hollywood/American Girl Place again. Brad also worked a few days in Cali, and 1 in Vegas during this time. We crammed a whole lot of activites, and a ton of traveling in to this time, but we are so glad to be back in beautiful Idaho Falls. I'll post pics when I figure out how, or when my dear friend Shannon helps me (wink-wink)!

It's a Girl!

At least that's what the ultrasound showed. I am only 15 weeks, but it was pretty obvious she wanted to show us that the girls will rule our house. We are so excited, especially Livy, who told me all along that the baby is a girl and she needs a "pink hat and boots". As soon as I figure out how, I will post pics. Just wanted to share the happy news!
