We just found out that the fifth McCoy born within a year will also be a girl.

FIVE GIRLS on the McCoy side within a year, I have a mental picture of them all dropping down from heaven together like sky diving down to Earth (#3 will arrive any day now). Ivy is 5th in her family, Presley is #4, Amberli's baby is the 3rd in her family and Amanda and Sharla's babies will be the first in their families. Talk about a bunch of different dynamics. This kind of thing only happens when you have 8 kids having children in a family ...with five of the families are having babies within a year (technically #4 is an Adamson with a McCoy mama). Never to be repeated since my uterus is retired.

Ivy will be thrilled to have so many girl cousins. So she will have 6 her age from both sides of our family! and 9 including all the Tanners (my cousins)! Wow!

The other news is Jason's parents are going on a two year mission! To Argentina! They will leave February 20th and we will miss them. We can call and skype and whatever but won't see them for two years! What a sacrifice they are making and I know they will serve the Lord well in Argentina. Can we all just say Jason's mom is much tougher than I am because I don't think I could do it. I already knew she was tougher than I, the woman did have nine children! Here is where they will be. Near the Paraguay border. The Resistencia Argentina Mission. Can't wait to hear all their adventures in Argentina.

I was an hour and a half from where jasons parents are going. They will be thirty minutes from the worlds largest and in my mind most beautiful waterfalls.
