One Month and Counting...

I am exactly one month away from my due date!!!! I can't believe that I can really have a baby here any day.

I have been trying to get all ready for him to come. I have been working hard on the bedding. I will get pictures of that up as soon as I get it done. I am really loving how it is turning out. I have been focusing on getting the baby's room all decorated, so the rest of my house has been neglected. So, hopefully I will be able to get the rest of the house baby ready before he comes.

At church yesterday, I was stopped in the halls by everyone asking me when I was done. Everyone commented on how I looked like I was about to pop. That is how I feel too. I haven't gained a lot of weight this pregnancy, but in the past couple weeks, I have grow 4 inches at the belly. I can't believe how big I am getting. I love having a big belly...we are just hoping that doesn't mean that I am going to have a huge baby.

Here are some pictures of me at 35 and a half weeks (They aren't that great, but I just wanted to get some while it was decent weather outside). I can't believe that I am so close to being done. I am to the point of no sleep, a constantly sore back, major heartburn nonstop, going to the bathroom every 10 minutes, being kicked in the same spot of the ribs every few minutes, and waddling every where I go. I can't wait to be finished. Jason thinks it is funny because I randomly say "ouch" under my breath all the time. The end of pregnancy is PAINFUL, but I know that every second is worth it. I am just now counting down the days and praying that I am not late!

SNOW SNOW SNOW--Our Holiday Recap

The holidays were a lot of fun for me and Jason. We traveled 12 1/2 hours each way to Rexburg and spent some time with Jason's family. It was great getting to know the in-laws and my neice and nephew a little better. I loved being in Rexburg. In a way, it was kind of like going home when I couldn't go home.

We spent our time playing games like Munchkin, San Juan, Settlers of Catan, Boxers and Briefs, Phase 10 Dice, Scene It (Harry Potter, Movies 2, and Friends) and Clue DVD (most of our entertainment was provided by Emily and Lyle...Thanks for letting us borrow the games). I really recommend all of these games. They were a ton of fun.

The PS2 seemed like it was always on--until the end when my brother in law bought a X-Box, then that was always on. I think that all the boys would have been bored to death if there was no Guitar Hero, Hot Shots Golf, Tekkin, Ultimate Alliance and Halo to play.

Jessica, Julie and I went to Porter's like 3 times. I think that this is Jason's worst at a craft store. I love Porter' has everything. I just wish that I had more money to spend there. Jessica has started beading, so she used us as guinea pigs and made us necklaces. I love mine! I just might have to start beading too.

I have been on the waiting list to get Twilight at the library now for a few months. My sister-in-law, Julie, finally convinced me just to buy it, SO I did. I haven't started to read it yet, but I can't wait to get started.

For Christmas, I made Bruce and Sue a tree skirt. I love how it turned out. It is perfect with their tree decor.We got to go to the Open House for the Rexburg Temple. It was so gorgeous. I can't wait to be able to go after it is dedicated. It was amazing to see the temple in Rexburg. It is the dominate building there. I was amazed at how much it stood out and for how many miles you can see it.

Jason got me this print for Christmas. It is a Simon Dewey. I love it. I can't wait to put it up in my house.
We hope that everyone's holidays went well. We are looking forward to having a great 2008--full of adventure and joy.
