Another Pictureless Update

As I sat here eating a bowl of Marshmellow Maties listening to "Come On Get Higher" and surfing internet waves I decided it was about time to give a little update of our doings.

For the past 3 weekends we have had births and birthdays in the family, which means that Cody's side of the family has made the 3 hour trek to our house about a million times. Welcome to the world Kate and Avery.

The last of their trips was last weekend for memorial day. I felt like we went non-stop from party to party, but the weekend ended with an awesome bond fire in a beautiful place called Hidden Valley overlooking Utah County. We, along with Chris, Holly, their kids (including the newest addition Avery), Tyler, Chantelle, Riley, Caleb, Hayley, Travis, and Brynlee enjoyed hot dogs, s'mores, and starbursts.

The next part of our adventure has to do with my side of the family. My mom had to evict some people from one of her houses (that's what happens when you don't pay rent for 7 months). After they packed up and moved we discovered that they had left boxes and BOXES of all kinds of crafts. I called my sisters to see if they wanted some and that is when Holly (my sister) got the bright idea for us to take ALL of the crafts and sell them. So yesterday we woke up at the crack of dawn and I had my very first yard sale. We ended up making a little over $180 (plus another $140 from Kim's stuff). Which I don't think is all that bad. We will be using the money to buy some cool stuff for Lake Powell this summer. I CAN'T WAIT TO GO!

Besides that, I am still pregnant and getting more and more uncomfortable. But, I guess I can't complain as long as the little guy is healthy and happy. I have my 39 week check-up in a few days. As of the last one I was dilated to a 2 and 80% effaced. At least I am progressing a little. That's promising, right?

Then, last but not least, tomorrow I make the jump from 24 to 25. I can't believe I'll be that old. I LOVE my birthday. I am excited for all that it promises...even if I already went out and bought my own present. I just can't get away from certain stores when they have a good sale...

That's it for now.

Why Boys Need Parents

I got a forward the other day entitled "Why Boys Need Parents" and this picture made me laugh out loud. Hopefully no one out there is offended or anything.

What makes it even funnier is that right after looking at that email at work, I came home to a blow gun war between Cody and his brother Travis. Darts were flying all over the place and every few seconds you would hear one of them bust up laughing.

I can't wait for our little boy...3 more weeks...

To Cody

I am a firm believer that if you have something nice to say to/about someone, especially a loved one, you should just tell them to their face as opposed to announcing it in a public venue, such as over a pulpit in church or a blog on the Internet. It just means more that way. I could go into detail as to why, but I'll just leave it at that.

I, however, am going to break away from my own opinion to let all of you readers out there know what a great man I have by my side. And yes, I am talking about Cody. (haha)

He has been quite a trooper throughout these last few months of my insanity; always there to rub my back and feet or tell me how beautiful I am when I really look like the most hideous being on planet earth.

He has even let me get away with a lot of dirty dishes, dirty laundry, dirty floors, etc. that I don't manage to get to like I should. And, if you know Cody at all, that is a huge accomplishment. He is probably the neatest, tidiest person I have ever known...which I appreciate, but fall very short of.

On top of all of his goodness towards me, which I could continue to talk about, he has been more than willing to help everyone else out in their time of need; whether it be a sibling, parent, niece, mother-in-law, friend, ward member, or an acquaintance. He even volunteered to help out on the church farm. He is all about what's fair.

All in all, Cody is the most awesome guy out there, and I thank him for it.

I took this picture on my phone almost a year ago, but I love the expression on his face. It makes me laugh. He is just so dang cute.

P.S. only 6 or so weeks until little Jr. Hoppy arrives...
