Thanksgiving Festivaties 2009

After 11 days of being away from home, the kids and I have returned. Gray was wonderful and let us stay a week longer to visit with family and friends, while he went back to work. It was a great trip, but I am happy to be home, back in my own bed and back to Gray. It has been a long time since the WHOLE family has been together, so it was great to see everyone and spend time with them. After our Baldwin & Idamae Kalama family reunion we were able to spend a few days with Vannessa and her family up in St. George, go to Nana's kids Christmas party (which we have seemed to miss every year that she has had it) and then spend a day in California with Jen and her family for Haylee's blessing.

Our newest addition

It has been a few weeks, but seeing as I have been a little pre-occupied, I think you will all forgive me. We have added a new little person to our family. His name is Orrin Grayson Ronk, named after my father and Gray. He was born August 17, 2009 at 10:59 am, he was 8 lbs, 8 oz and 21 inches. The minute I heard his cry, I was in love again. He was born with lots of dark hair, but not as much as Wehilani had and for the time being he has gray/blue eyes, it's kinda crazy. He has huge cheeks that you just want to eat all the time. So far he has been a good baby, all he does is eat (A LOT), sleep and fill his diaper. He is starting to stay awake longer during the day, which is nice, so sleeping at night has gotten a little better for me :). Wehilani has adjusted pretty well. She likes to help me feed him and she loves to give him kisses, she also likes to hold him, but of course it's all of 2 seconds that she wants to help.

Well that is all for now. Here are a few pictures of our newest addition.

Rain Boots

The other day while we were out, Wehilani and I went to a children's consignment shop and we found some rain boots and ever since that day she has worn her boots everywhere we go. They are 2 sizes to big, but she still wears them. Here are a few pictures of her and her rain boots. These were taken in our backyard and yes, she is just wearing a onesie and her boots. Don't you just want to eat those legs :)!!

This is what WE do at the doctors

Today we went to see if Baby Oren would be making his appearance today and to now avail, he is not, but after much thought we have decided to schedule a c-section for Monday at 10:00am. So hopefully we will have some pictures of our newest addition Monday evening. But while we were at the doctors, we needed something to keep Wehilani occupied, and this is what Gray came up with, enjoy :)

I know it has been a few months since we last posted anything, but lots has gone on. First of all, the house that we were renting, the owner was not paying his mortgage payments. We found out shortly after we moved in last August that the house was going up for auction, so we started looking for houses then. The house was scheduled to go up for auction March 9, 2009, so we had some time to look. Well we looked and looked and couldn't find anything that worked for us, March 9 came around, no one bought the house at auction, so we thought that we would put an offer on the house and just buy it. Well they, the bank, told us that they wouldn't even look at our offer until we moved out, who is going to move out to move right back in, someone who is crazy I tell you, add to all the craziness, I was 4 months pregnant at the time. We went to court to see if we could stay in the house until we could find a home of our own and they told us that we needed to be out of the house by June 1. I guess it worked out, we were able to live in the house rent free for a few months. Well we continued to look for a home and we found one, but we wouldn't be able to move in until the end of July, YIKES!!!! We had to find a place to rent for a few months and the end of July would put us within a week or so of baby being due. We found a plce and let me tell you, that was an ADVENTURE to say the least. Finally we are in our house after jumping through a million hoops and somewhat settled, I am still pregnant, 4 days over due, and I still need to take pictures so everyone can see what our house looks like. Once I get up the energy to get the pictures taken I will post them and hopefully within a few days, we will have pictures of our newest addition to the family.

I have to say is, this whole experience has made me realize that Heavenly Father has a timetable and that we need to just trust in him and he will take care of us.

The many going on's of Wehilani

Well these past few days, Wehilani has really started to think on her own and I have realized how much she knows what is going on and pays attention to what is going on around her. Here are a few stories to illustrate.

The other day she asked me for some cheese, so I got her some cheese and she took it, walked out of the kitchen and turned back around and said "tank you mommy". I almost fell over of shock, most of the time I have to say "what do you say" and then she says it, but not this time.

Today when I put her down for her nap, I had her give Gray a hug and a kiss and noggin. Well when I put her in bed, she folded her arms and said "pay", which means pray. Well she must have thought she was going to bed for the night and it was time to say our family prayer, so crazy how much they know what is going on.

Yesterday, after I got the call from Gray saying that he still had a job, I turned the tv off and told Wehilani that we were going to say a prayer to thank Heavenly Father that Gray was still employed. Well when she walked out of the room, I decided that I was just going to say it without her. Well at the end of the prayer she came out of her room carrying her little stool. Well, when we say our family prayers at the end of the night, she sits on her little stool, so ofcourse, she needed her little stool to sit on to say a prayer.

Sorry about the bragging, mommy moment, but I had to do it, she is just way to cute.
