Surprise!

We like to keep things exciting here at the Beckstrom home and we had a little surprise yesterday... we are having a GIRL!! We are so excited for Caroline to have a baby sister to be buddies with, so as of now, we are having a girl. Stand by for Dec. 14th to see if that is true!

Also, the month has flown by and we move in 2 days! We have been filling every minute of our time and it has been a wonderful and fun filled month.

We have been enjoying this little one's every move and word:
"Mommy, I miss you. I love you. Mommy..(pause), you're my best friend."

Enjoying some relaxation at Bear Lake with friends. Caroline loved being around baby Madeline Rigby!
Camping with the Beckstroms up Big Cottonwood Canyon
Longtime favorite Indigo Girls concert with my sister Erika, and we also met up with friends Rach, Gretchen, and Garred.
Bees game with my fam
And packing, which I wouldn't say is the thing I like to do for fun, but it's been nice going through things. With most of our things packed, we are thinking it would be a lot simpler to live off of a lot less. Hopefully I can practice this great idea!!

See ya in New Hampshire!!

Allie was a boy - and then a girl! As you know, sisters are something special. Good luck with the move! Wish we were there to help out. It will be such a fun adventure!

I'm so sad that you are going to be gone for 3 years. We have so much fun together and not to have Caroline around to brighten up my day. But it will be a great adventure and experience for you. So I'll have to "buck" up and be a big girl. This is like sending your child off to kindergarten. So as Caroline says, "I love you, I miss you."

Steph was a girl, then a boy, then....well that's why we don't call her Gunther. Caroline will be so good with a little sister, though. Sisters share lots (as you probably already know), where sisters & brothers can't play dress up, etc. Congrats. We'll miss you guys!! The other Beckstroms

That's hilarious! Ya know, boy or girl, that baby will be beautiful and very loved. What a lucky little thing! That is fun that the baby and Caroline can be buddies.
