It's Officially True

For those of you who don't already know...I figured it's time to make the announcement official.
The Dickson Crew will now total 7! We are growing yet again. It is said that surprises keep life interesting - and this was definetely a big one. It took a couple weeks of shock and trying to shake off the feelings of total meltdown...to get to the excitement we now feel and trust that all will work out SOMEHOW! And yes it is also true that we have mastered the virtue of consistency (I'm not sure if you can call it a virtue, but it makes us feel better) we found out this past weekend,

IT'S A BOY!!
I guess, no pink for this house! We have the jerseys at the printer...we can soon begin training with a full basketball team. And we are opening a special account to start saving for the grocery bill 10 years from now. :) We really do feel blessed and are thankful that we have such good, handsome boys - no wonder there needed to be 5th!

I loved reading all of your updates, and I amazed at Barts willingness to participate in the pupmkin race. Looks like fun!

Congratulations! Do you guys have a name picked out?

And I'm so glad you blogged the pumpkin ragatta. That was so fun to see, and cheer for our Bishop!

i must admit i share celeste's sentiments:) but chris said we're done now anyway?! you do make handsome boys, so might as well continue the trend, eh? i just tell everyone that it's cheaper & easier this way! good luck with names-that's my saddest part about no other girls in this parker household...i am spared the hormonal drama but miss out on our cute name! we had the hardest time agreeing on our last lil' guy & chris still thinks he has all power to change during the blessing?!

Holly or James said...

WOW!! you're that far along too? That's crazy! Good luck with number 5!!! (:

Wow. Congratulations. What a fun home for another boy to come into to. You guys are great parents. We haven't even had a chance to talk about how 4 boys is yet. I'm trying to talk myself into doing it all again.

We're trying to grow up and be like you and the Romney's. We just found out we're having our 3rd little boy. April 3. Is it as chaotic as I think it's going to be? Wrestle mania?
