Just found out today that our super-good friends, Jeromy & Anna, are expecting a BOY!!!!!! What a GREAT way to end the week...then dump on some snow!

Our boys can grow up together, get in trouble, beat each other up, and play in the sand together!! They'll only be 3 months apart!

Can't wait to hold them both!

30 weeks

Last Sunday we hit 30 weeks! It's this Sunday we're only 9 weeks away from our due date. It's a little scary! We have the room painted and all the furniture is put together. It's really starting to look like a nursery. Every time I walk by it surprises me.
Baby showers have been planned, and that's a good thing cause we've got some big items like furniture and a stroller and high chair, but we're minimal on clothing and other necessities. We've registered at Babies 'R' Us...that was an adventure! If you're out shopping for us, just remember that mommy doesn't like green! All other colors are OK! :-)

Annual Christmas Party

Every year our fabulous group of friends holds a super fun Christmas bash. Sometimes it's here at our house, other times it's in Boone at Erin's. Either way we always have a GREAT time and tons of laughs fill the house. Here are some photos of the fun.
Anna, Kelly, David, Christa, and Gary
Karen, David & Melissa
Jeromy, Collin, Erin & Anna
(Yes, Erin has a slap chop!!!!)Yes....that's Jeromy, our diabetic friend winning a present full of chocolate and candy!!! And Collin won a book....he doesn't read anything! A very interesting Dirty Santa this year!
I'll post some more pics when Anna shares her pics from her new camera!
The boys also played a pretty heated game of ping pong, but I didn't get any pictures!

We're seriously considering cloth diapering. Any thoughts, hints, tips or tricks? I've been looking online at blogs and websites and such and there's so much information out there. Know someone who knows someone? I'm still gathering information...

These are in no particular order! Anthony and I had a Wonderful Christmas! It's very interesting to be pregnant this year, and knowing it's our last year as just the two of us. We're incredibly excited about a baby joining the family but it's a little sad to know we'll have to share each other next year. Does that make sense?! are some of the pics I took while we were in our Christmas splendor!

Our nephew, Zane playing with our Christmas present. It's a chair that unfolds to make a race car and it has a steering wheel and makes noises. It's terribly cute! He loved it! "Queen!" he yells.
I have to admit I think this is a cute picture! My mom's giant 12 foot Christmas tree in the background and our little (but growing) family! I've got little Lile and baby Lincoln growing inside! How exciting!!!
Zane sure loves his tractors! This was one of his only still moments on Christmas morning at Nana's house! Mommy was opening presents and he was checking them out. You have NO idea how much he looks just like my brother, unless you know Kaleb that is!
Two of my favorite gifts from Anthony...a cuddly, soft bath robe and my double diploma frame from ASU for my bachelor's and master's degrees! They are already proudly displayed and hanging downstairs!

My grandparents' house on Christmas Eve. These are my dad's parents, his sister and her daughter, and us! If you don't dad's in the blue shirt and glasses in the back, brother, sister-in-law, and mom on the left. The right side is my Aunt Sheila and cousin Taylor.

Sweet Lile in front of the tree!

Anthony got a ping pong table for Christmas! He was very excited. Needless to say I can't wrap the table, so he got the paddles instead!

We had a great Christmas season and a nice New Year. All our friends were just in this weekend for our annual Christmas party. There were 13 of us in all this year...and we're still growing! We had a fabulous time together...we always do. That'll have to be another post for another day!
