Poll update!!

I had an appointment today and found out that my ultrasound will be on the 22nd. So, there is a little less time now on the poll. If you want to vote, you better not wait much longer. :)

Also, the due date is 9 March. So, I think this'll be a March baby. Anyway, all is well there. Ben took some pictures of me yesterday with my pg belly, so I'll see if I can put them up later today for those that are curious.

That's all for now!!

So, I'm back to add those I said Ben took the pictures. He did a pretty good job, you can decide for yourself.

Ok, just one picture. He took a few and just so you know, some didn't have my head. :)

Date Night!

Saturday night I had a wonderful date with my husband!! It feels like it's been longer than it probably has been, but it was great!!

Thank you Diane for watching the kids for us. Mike ended up getting some tickets at the Conference Center. It was the O.C. Tanner music night. It was so good!! We were able to drop the kids off with Diane and then go to dinner before the concert. The seats were luck of the draw and they turned out to be AWESOME. We were in the front 2nd from the left section in the 4th row. Pres. Monson and Eyring were there and I had a good view of them from my seat. :)

It was the Tabernacle Choir, the Utah Symphany and a guest conductor and two guest vocalists. They all did a really good job. My favorite was Brian Stokes Mitchell. He say 3 songs that just had a good hold on me. As we were leaving I heard someone behind me say something about not having a crush, but she does now. I think I might have to least a little bit.

I just have to say that it was good and it was nice to have a date and it sounds like the kids were good too, so it turned out just right!!!

Thanks again Fan....

It's Friday...

I'm in love!!

I think we sing this every Friday. I'm not sure why, but it's become habit/routine. I'm trying to clean house today. Why does it feel like a joke? Oh, well. If I can get some things done, it'll be better than not doing anything.

Mike has been visiting WSU and USU these last two days. He got to spend the night last night with some siblings and will be home later tonight. I know it may sound dumb, but I missed him before it had really been that long. I was thinking to myself how I missed him and how dumb it was that I was acting like a newlywed. As I have been thinking about it longer now, I realize that feeling like a newlywed isn't all that bad. I'm so glad that I can/do miss him. I'm glad that I am still in love with him even more so now than I was when we got married. Why do newlyweds get such bad connotation???

Anyway, just some random thoughts really on this Friday. I'm excited for dinner tonight. I'm making niocci. I'll have to tell you how it goes tomorrow. It's fun to do something different every once in awhile, right?

Well, enough of my randomness. I'm off for now!!

Guess what, we got our first fundraiser from the school. It's exciting to realize that I have one in school now so I don't have to buy something from everyone in the neighborhood. :)

Now that they have started, one night last week the doorbell rang. I went to get it and some girl was standing on my porch. She then proceeded to ask me if I wanted to buy something for their school fundraiser. I told her that right now wasn't good and sent her away, but I was really bothered. I'm not sure what my problem is, but I don't really feel like buying something from someone whom I have never met and have no idea who they are.

It was just an experience that taught me to never let my kids ask someone they don't even know to help with a fund raiser. There are plenty of kids around and chances are they know one of them.....

I hope that doesn't come across negative, but I'm curious as to how other people handle fundraisers and how do you approach that as a parent??

First Day of School!

Ben started pre-school last Thursday and I'm now getting around to putting a few pictures up of him. I was reading about everyone and their first day, so I thought I would add my own, since that's all I have right now.

He has had day 2 and is still loving it. He refers to the other kids in the class as "the red boy", the "blue boy", the "blue girl". He was telling me about playing and I asked him who he was playing with and he said he asked the "blue girl" and she did. I thought it was funny. He also was singing some song that they have sung and he really enjoys it. I don't know it, or I would share it with you all.....

Anyway, it's fun for him and I'll put up these pictures for you to see. :)
Charlie had to get in the picture too. I guess on that first day, he would have called himself a "blue boy" LOL

Labor Day Weekend!!

I thought I would write and post a few pictures from our long weekend. We went and visited family in Wyoming. It was a lot of fun to spend time and play games and let our kids enjoy their time together as well.

Here are some pictures of our trip. Hope you enjoy.

Ain't no need to watch where I'm going, just need to know where I've been.
