For FHE last Monday we decided to take the family bowling. This was the kids first time. We got to the bowling alley and had to wait a little. There were a ton of senior citizens there. So we got a lane with bumpers and started. At first I thought we could easily bowl two games. As time went on I knew it would only be one game. It takes the girls a long time to carry their ball and roll it down the lane. Once Ali did it all by herself and I thought we were going to have to walk down the lane and push the ball so it would make it. But a couple minutes later it made it! At first Ali was upset that she had to take turns and that she couldn't bowl the whole time herself. So we were having a good time and I was taking pictures, using an open lane next to us, when an old man came up to me and said, "Excuse me, we are on a bowling league and are trying to bowl." And I said, "That is why I am using this open lane to take pictures." And he said, "It is common courtesy to not walk up by the lane while people are trying to bowl." So these old people were 2 lanes away from us. So now I had to make sure Lizzy and Ali were seated unless it was their turn to bowl. Which is easier said than done. So that kind of took the fun out of it. We made it through a game and I beat Shae!-which is all that matters! :)

So we finally got some snow here in Utah! It snowed on the first day of December. Shae took the girls outside to play and build a snowman. Hopefully I will be able to go skiing a couple times this year. Also Lizzy is excited to go skiing again this year with her Dad. She is getting skis for Christmas! Ali might have to wait another year until she is ready to try it out. We love snow and want more of it!

Last month Lizzy had a preschool program about Thanksgiving. All the kids dressed like Indians. They sang songs about Thanksgiving and they all went around saying what they were grateful for using sign language. Lizzy sad she was grateful for her father. Watching that little program I found myself being very proud of Lizzy. She knew all the songs and signs. She is getting so big all of the sudden! I love her and her loud personality!

Aiden is nice and healthy! He just had his 2 week appointment and now weighs 9 lbs. and 11 oz. He was 8 lbs. and 2 oz. when he left the hospital. So as you can tell he is a great eater! Aiden is in the 71% for weight and only 34% for height. He is now 20 1/2 inches long. I think he is getting really big. I can already see the changes. It is fun having a baby again because they love to cuddle and they can't talk back! I sometimes wish they all stayed little babies.

It's funny that we have two girls because instead of wanting to choose "girly" costumes like fairy princesses they want to be something that a boy would choose to be like a fireman and a turtle. Lizzy chose her costume all by herself. She found it while we were shopping at Costco. And we found Ali's costume at The Children's Place. The girls had fun trick or treating in our neighborhood while I was still in the hospital and got lots of candy.

Ali turned 2 on Halloween, but since Aiden was being born on the 29th, we decided to celebrate her birthday a little early. We had family over for a Dora themed party. She loved her presents! She got a panda bear, clothes, and some toys. She mainly loved eating her birthday cake and ice cream!

Aiden Shae Fetters joined our family at 7:14 am! He weighed in at 8 lbs. 6 oz. and 18 inches long. When I first saw him I was a little surprised because he really didn't look like the girls when they were born, but I was immediately in love with him and excited to have a boy. The scheduled c-section went well. The spinal that I was given to make my lower half completely numb didn't even hurt! That was a first. He was born at American Fork Hospital in Utah. The staff was really nice and I would recommend others to deliver there. The hospital stay was relaxing and I also love not having to cook.
