Mother in law's Talents

ever since we found out we were having a girl and i wanted to get wooden letters to spell out charlee's name paint them and hang them above the crib. i was talking to jake about it and he said that his mom could make the lettters for me, so we picked a font and talked to julie(jakes mom) and before we knew it we handed the project over to her. good thing that we did becuase she did a way better job than i would have done. jakes mom really talented at painting and doing projects like this so i am so happy i let her do it. its way more than i expected and i totally love it. i cant wait until i can see it up close and it will look totally cute in the baby's room. didnt she do a great job? i would have just painted letters pink and brown and hung them on the wall, but this is way better. thank you so much!

Memorial Day BBQ

so for memorial day we were invited to joe and lindsey's house for a bbq. (for you that dont know iwe found out a few months ago and joe and lori dastrup live out here and were in the same ward.)it was a great day for a bbq. they have a great deck outside of thier house and it was great to sit out there and it wasnt 110degrees! i forgot my camera so i dont have any pictures, but i would like to thank them for having us over. lori, her husband and some other couples were there too. there was a little girl named avery and she was the cutest little thing. we had a great time! to my surprise jeremy skinner and his family came by too, i didnt know that they were out here. they are in a different ward, but its such a small world that they all live out here and its great to get to know them all over again. jake was the only one not going to dental school. anyways, i also want to say that im thankful for the soliders that are serving and the ones that have served before us to perserve our freedom. so i only have 2 weeks left and have an appt on friday so ill update every and maybe you;ll get a picture of my huge belly!!

4 More weeks!

so today is excatly 4weeks until my induction! im going in on june 6! i have so many emotions. im so excited but totally nervous. this whole time im thinking "im totally ready for this, i can do this, i know what its like i have 4 nephews!" but as it gets closer i start thinking "i really dont know if im ready for it" its come so much faster than i thought! even though ive been part of my sisters labors, every labor is different and i really dont know how my body is going to react. im not looking forward to that epidural needle! but i do want the pain med! i cant wait for my mom to come and help me out, and my mother in law a few weeks later, but im going to be a mess when they leave. leave me alone with a child!?!? hopefully mommy mode will kick in when she comes. i just want to thank my husband for all the support hes given me during my pregnancy he's been really understanding of all my complaints and not working for the last 6months. also my mom, dad and family they have done so much for us. so wish us luck!

so my mom got me to read this series and its pretty good. i havent read too many books but i love church books. i highly reconmend the children of the promise, the work and the glory, the kade family saga, and the porter rockwell chronicles. anyways, when i started i didnt know if i was going to like it or not, and it acutally took me a little while to get through the first book, but its really good. im on the second book and almost dont with it, i can hardly put it down. i love that ive learned a few things about the nephites and lamanites. there is about 10 books in all, i just hope i can get through all of them after the baby comes. so if youre looking for a book to read i reconmend this series!
