Happy Easter Day!

Trail Brinley and Brielle (in her new princess chair the Easter bunny gave her)
My sweet girls, I can't wait to have another girl in my arms! (The hugs and girl time totally make up for the emotional drama we enjoy=)
The Sampson 5 (soon to be 6)
My boys! Good think Clint has a boy, they stick together!
Trail loves to hug the baby and has for a long time, he is super cute with babies!

Thought I would share some happy pictures of the Sampson's. We are thankfully doing much better. Brinley started in sick the other day, but for fear of another hospital stay we took her right in and got her started on breathing treatments again, which made her feel so much better! It is amazing how kids can bounce back. We are extremely thankful for good insurance!!!!!!!!

We are anxiously awaiting the arrival of our newest addition! Poor Clint has had quite the honey do list with my nesting! 20 days til I'm due, but who's counting. We made a countdown chain (pink and purple of course) so the kids can understand more how much longer til she comes. I'm feeling super pregnant (for obvious reasons) but also very thankful for the ability to carry and have children. I think back (7 years when we weren't sure if I would be able to have children of our own) What a priceless blessing to be expecting baby #4! Even with the constant heartburn, many trips to the bathroom day and night, kicks to my ribs, bladder and hip, and all the other unpleasant things at the end of pregnancy. I'm thankful for the movement that lets me know she is doing well and the thoughts of holding our precious daughter in my arms!

One perk of Clint's job is he gets to take Trail with him sometimes. He was super excited to go yesterday. He always tries to trick me about them going out to eat, his little smirk doesn't trick me though. He loves to shoot his bow and we have been going for LOTS of bike rides (especially because Brinley just got a new bike (she outgrew her last one). Brielle is a sweet girl and makes her Dad laugh. When I ask her for a love she will say, "Sorry, Daddy took them all" Brinley loves school, has lost 2 teeth so far, and can read. The other day she wanted to read to me and she put me to sleep (Brought back memories of doing that to my Mom) So she had a nap too! We love all of our kids and the joy they bring to our life.
