Funny Story

Tonight was had our Saturday session of Stake Conference which was really good but the funny story comes from the after party.

Following conference we went with a few friends to Braums for dinner/dessert.  We had a great time with lots of laughs.  The best part was when our buddy Geoff started making comments about kids and how hard it can be at times but also how wonderful they are.  He was telling us that one day we would soon figure this out for ourselves.  We let the conversation go on for a bit and Garon's grin just kept getting bigger and bigger, finally he makes the comment to the entire group that "Come March 1st we will know if it is a boy or girl".  Everyone just kind of paused for a moment and then kept asking if we were for real.  It was a wonderful evening and it is so great to have such great friends (we really do need to get together a little more often)! :) 

So yes, for those of you following, we will indeed find out if we go pink or blue on March 1st, that is if the little one really wants to share.  We are getting pretty excited as time passes.  It has gone by pretty quick so far.  We are currently at 19 weeks just a few days away from 20 and things seem to be going great.  Every once in a while I get a smell coming my way that I don't like but it usually goes away rather quickly.  I just have to space out the time between Garon and I in the restroom...if you know what I mean.  

Over all the pregnancy has gone very smoothly, not too much sickness, and the tiredness kind of comes in waves.  I find that when I get up and get going I tend to have a lot more energy than when I just sit around and try to motivate myself, kind of strange but it works.  

I have outgrown most of my "normal" pants, I can still get them on but I can't exactly button them, I do the rubber band trick but sometimes it just isn't comfortable.  When I am home I put on the big pants and loose t-shirts but I do try to dress properly when I leave the house.  

Hmmmmm, I don't really know what else to put at this point, that kind of catches me up for the blogging world for now.

It's Valentines Day

Well, here I am at the close of a wonderful Valentines day!  Garon and I took the rather relaxing path today.  We made homemade cards, and I got him his ultimate favorite treat, Reese's - I got the heart because they come with more peanut butter which he prefers.  We managed to make it to church and enjoy the day then we came home and just spent the afternoon with each other which is absolutely amazing.  I must say that is one of our favorite past times.  We love being able to spend time together even if we are doing nothing.  

This evening my niece came over and spent the night, she is so funny and amazes us every time she is around.  She wanted to watch her movie so she did that and then went to town on a bag of popcorn - I think she literally ate an entire bag, we were sharing but that did not last for long, she picked it up and moved it to the other side.  After some play time and a few stories we got all nestled into bed and within a matter of minutes she was out.  We had one T-I-R-E-D girl on our hands.  She wants to get up in the morning and make pancakes and play games.  

Garon and I are so blessed to have wonderful family near and far and we are so grateful for the support and love that they continually show towards us.  We have learned and continue to learn that it is the simple things in life that keep us going and give us the strength, energy, and hope to continue to move forward.  Life is grand and I am so happy that I have a wonderful eternal companion that I am able to share it with! :)

The Beginning of a New Adventure

The news is slowly beginning to escape our lips, Garon and I are expecting a tiny little miracle. We had our first doctor appointment on Tuesday, February 2. There is one baby and everything looks as though it is going great. We are 17 weeks along, almost the half way point which is really exciting for us. It has been an emotional journey thus far but the worries and "what-ifs" are on the verge of subsiding. We will find out on March 1st what we are having - that is if the baby cooperates with us - which is pretty exciting.

I also have two sister that are expecting and we are all due within a month or so of each other. We have one due the beginning of June, I am due July 14, and my other sister is due just a few days after that. It will be a busy summer for our family but it makes life so exciting.

I will have pictures posted later this evening once I get them scanned into the computer.
