I love the fall! I love the leaves that crunch under my feet as I walk, the cool brisk air, the excitement of upcoming holidays! What a wonderful time of year! Last Saturday we woke early and spent the morning raking leaves.

My wonderful little helpers. They were such troopers to hold bags all morning while we filled them with leaves.

By the afternoon a storm had blown through and we had enough snow to build a snowman!

Halloween princesses. Aubrey was Cinderella and Hailey was Rapunzel.

This was Hailey's pose when we tried to take family pictures!

Lots of Updates!

There are lots of new posts below. Be sure to check them all out. They are in backward order chronologically so you can start with the post titled "Update" and move up from there.

Amber Marie

The girls came to visit mom and Amber at the hospital and had an immediate bond to her. They are going to be great sisters and best three little princesses!

When Hailey first met Amber she gave this face and exclaimed "Oh my goodness!" It was love at first sight and she has not let Amber alone since.


The next day was Paul's brother's homecoming from his mission to Argentina. It is so fun to have him home.


The Saturday before the baby was born we picked and canned peaches from our very own peach tree. I've never tasted such delicious peaches!

That night we went to the Salt Lake Bees baseball game. It was my first pro baseball game and we spent lots of time trying to cool off with plenty of drinks and treats.


It has been a while since I have last updated. I realized after baby #3 was born that all those people who said #3 was the kicker, suddenly you don't have as many hands as you do children, or that you and your husband are out-numbered and the adjustment is hard...all those people said these things in great wisdom. Child #3 has definitely been an adjustment. So, I start my update before the baby was born. Here are some cute pictures of the girls.

Sweet Baby Justensen

Our cute little bundle arrived today. I went into labor at 2am and it was a lot of fun going into labor on my own this time. We went to the hospital and our little princess arrived at 7:40am. She weighs 8lbs even and is 20 inches long. She has a lot of light brown hair and is simply adorable! We are so excited to have her in our family. We have yet to choose a name but hopefully it will come soon.

August 30th

I think August 30th sounds like a great day to have a baby...don't you?! It seems like the perfect birthday, the date just has a ring to it. I am so excited to go to the hospital tomorrow and have my third little princess! I can't wait! I just found out today so I am rushing about trying to get laundry done and the house cleaned. Hip Hip hooray! A brand new baby!

Birthday/Father's Day

Paul's birthday was right before Father's Day. We had a fun party, played Paul Jeopardy and everyone got to know Paul a little better.

I made a frozen yogurt cake for Paul's birthday.

Happy Father's Day! We are so grateful for Paul and what a wonderful husband and father he is. We couldn't ask for a better man to be head of our home! We got him tools for both his birthday and Father's Day. What a great gift for a new homeowner!


I am far overdue for an update. Here are some random pictures. Enjoy!

Aubrey decided to take a nap in the baby carseat. You can see her head poking out of the top of the carseat.

Easter girls.

Aubrey still loves to dress up! She even walked all the way around the block in heals, getting blisters in the process. She didn't mind the blisters because she had so much fun walking around with her plastic dress up heals on!

The last two weeks have been crazy! We closed on our house and are moving in this Saturday. We have been trying to paint some bedrooms, (the girls' room and the nursery were both blue) as well as Paul's office before we move in. I'm not sure we will finish but we are going to do our best. So, if we aren't painting we are packing, if we aren't packing we are painting. We will definitely post before and after pictures when we get things finished and settled. Can't wait to move into our new house this weekend!!!

Where have we been?!

I'm so sorry for the lack of posts recently. If all goes well, we hope to close on our new house on Monday! Hooray! We are so excited to be in our own home. Life has been busy with the house and packing, etc. The girls are doing well and are very happy that the warmer weather allows them to be outside playing more. They will be even more ecstatic when we move into our new home and they have a backyard and a swing set. Paul is working hard and enjoying his job, I am unfortunately still sick from pregnancy. I figure this time it's just going to be a full pregnancy sickness, which is OK. The rewards are far greater than the price I have to pay. Here is a picture of the new home we hope to own by Monday afternoon!!!

We had our ultrasound and are so grateful to have a healthy strong little baby growing. We are also pleased to announce that we are having...........another little girl! We are so excited to have a third little princess come into our home and can't wait to see what her personality will be like.

A Boy or a Girl?

We are 10 days away from the ultrasound of this cute little Justensen Baby and yes, we are going to find out the gender. Feel free to write a comment with your vote and we will let you know!

St. Patrick

We had a fabulous St Patty's Day. We learned all about St. Patrick and enjoyed yummy foods like green eggs and pancakes along with green milk for breakfast, green macaroni and cheese for lunch, (and for those of you thinking this is gross, you would be correct. It truly looked disguisting, but the girls loved it!) and tacos on green tortillas for dinner. We ended the day with a treasure hunt for the pot of gold. The clues led us to a pot of treats hidden in the clothes dryer! Unfortunately, I can't post any of these pictures for some unknown reason. You'll just have to imagine how much fun we had!


We took the girls bowling and had so much fun! Hailey was a bit scared at first, but towards the end we convinced her to push the ball. However, she would only go as close as the bowling rack, so we had to help the ball along. Aubrey loved bowling and had so much fun! It was a great family activity, though I have learned from the experience that bowling might not be the best activity during pregnancy!

Aubrey's Ensembles

Lately Aubrey has been very insistent on picking her own outfits and dressing herself. Once dressed, she proceeds to accessorize. These are her latest creations!

Hailey's Birthday

We recently celebrated Hailey's second birthday. She is such a sweet girl and our family would not be complete without her. She adds so much spice and fun into our lives. Hailey loves to be teased and she teases her fair share as well. She is a bit emotional but is also quick to laugh. We sure do love this wonderful little girl. Paul and his brother worked hard the night before to get her cake done so she could wake up to her Thomas the Train cake!

Here she is with all her presents.

This was by far one of her favorite presents. My sister sent her some Thomas the Train PJs. She loves them! When I get her up from naptime she has taken off her pants and has her Thomas pjs in hand, asking me to put them on!

Spoke too soon!

I realize that I spoke too soon when complaining about my kids being sick. After a visit to InstaCare today, two ear infections and RSV, I have learned never ever EVER to complain about my kids being sick. It can always get worse! Be grateful for the sniffling noses and hope that's all it is...sniffling noses.

Sick Sick Sick

There are so many blogs I have read lately of mothers who are just emerging from being trapped in the house for 4 weeks with sick kids. I am two weeks into this experience and I'm not sure how much longer I can take it! Of course it is nice to have Hailey snuggle up to me, however it would be nice to sleep in my own bed the whole night through. We have tried to get creative in our activities, but it would be nice for the girls to go out and see the light of day for once. This too will pass, I'm sure. The sun will emerge and spring will come...early this year, right?! I guess I will just have to keep waiting.

Christmas Pictures, finally!

Here are the remainder of the Christmas photos I will be uploading. It only took me two months to do it! We had so much fun enjoying all the festivities of the season and having family around. We discovered over the Christmas holiday that Hailey loves the snow!

We had so much fun on Christmas Eve with cousins and family. My sister and her kids prepared the program for Christmas Eve and it was so awesome! We loved it!

The girls and I are waiting on Christmas morning to come down the stairs and look at all the presents! Christmas morning was perfect. My sister's kids slept in so we were able to focus on our kids first, and then turn our attention to her kids when they woke up.

Our Christmas morning family.

The best Christmas present! We found out that Baby #3 is on it's way and due September 3rd!
