My hubby

Just a quick note to tell my husband how much I love him. Eight years ago today I made the best choice of my life and married him. I love his kindness and sweetness toward me. I love that he makes me laugh everyday. He is my support and the best possible dad I could have ever imagined for the other three and a half loves of my life.
Thanks for making this the best eight years, Jus! I love you!

New fun craziness

As per several requests for clarification (apparently my post a month ago tipped people off!) I am relenting and saying out loud that baby #4 is on her way. It is another girl which was to Matthew's terrible chagrin. He wasn't quite sure at first how it was going to be with three younger sisters. Our friends from Omaha, the Bairds, also have a son, then three girls. Their son warned Matthew of this very real possibility when Matt was 1 year old and we all laughed because there just aren't a lot of girls in the Eliason family. Who knew Tanner was right and here I am, 5 years later, remembering that little prophetic comment!
It will be interesting to say the least to see how our family dynamic will change. Things will be crazy at best. I don't know how things will go with a new baby and my calling (okay I do realize that my Grandma had 11 kids or so when she was RS pres and she survived so it can be done but I don't hold much hope for sanity with this combo!) but the Lord strengthens, this I know. Family of 6 here we come!
