I Love My Family

This past week was awesome!!! Naomi flew in late Friday night and we spent Saturday doing girl downtown :) Sunday we made our way towards Kalispell, to pick up Sarah and Ted at the train station in Whitefish.

(By Flathead Lake)

After just a few short hours of sleep, we got up early and made our way ALL the way towards Anaconda to go skiing at Discovery. Naomi had NEVER skii'd and I TRIED to take her down the beginners hills. It was so funny....(sorry Naomi) and hilarious memories were made. Ted and Logan took to the back of the mountain, so we didnt' see much of them, but Sarah and I took a few little adventures on some runs that I dont think I would like to do again!! (And YES, I DID ask our midwife, and she was is was OK to long as I didn't take too many hard falls. HA!)

Tuesday we slept in till like 11, while Logan went back to work and Ted went up to Big Mountain. (There was a whole ton of riding in the car this week by the way...6 1/2 hours in the car on Mon. alone...haha) Us girls went to the mall, and basically relaxed all day! Chase Syverson came over from Bozeman to just hang out for a while. Naomi flew out that afternoon, and then we later left for Kalispell....again. We stopped in Charlo for gspl meeting with Sandy, Leilani Price, Donovon Olson and Dustin Pilcher. Then.....DQ in Ronan....;) Thursday Ted went back up to Big Mountain again, and we hung out on the farm. Sarah got to experience pig sorting for the first time, and hold the tiny piglets. We then had a super fun little photo shoot :D We got the crazy SHORT dress and the sweather at Mega Thrift and they actually looked really CUTE!!
I am so glad that it worked out for them all to come out...makes me realize how much I MISS them! But then again....I guess thats what the airplanes and trains are for!
Hope everyone else who got a spring break enjoyed it! We sure did!

Our Baby's Heartbeat!

Today we heard our baby's heartbeat!! I can still hear the woosh woosh....woosh woosh....woosh woosh from this morning. We also got to see him/her again...this time with arms and legs. We were hoping that we could see him/her dancing and moving around...but I guess it was nap time.

And I have put on 2 "baby pounds" so far! (Feels like a LOT more) I am re-doing my grocery list, and making sure i get ALL the veggies the midwife said I need more of. I think that I'll disguise them all in a soup or something. :D
I am feeling MUCH better....but still have headaches. But hopefully it's just something the chiro can work on.

This weekend was the famous "Chick Days" for Logan. But since there was SNOW on the ground Saturday morning, I guess not as many people were in the spring "cute little chick" mood. So...come buy one..or else Cenex will also be selling EGGS!

Charm the stars..

It's been a while since I've posted anything...due to morning sickness, work, and being just plain hormonal. :D At 10 1/2 weeks, everything is going good...and we're getting more excited every day! What did my ticker say....only 206 more days?? Haha.

Im not sure when people start showing, but i noticed a little tiny bump. Might be all in my head...but when I looked in the mirror,...I saw it. I even flexed to see if it was just pudge...and it was still there!
As far as weird cravings...not too bad. Yesterday however...I NEEDED (i HATE these normally by the way...) store bought hot dogs with cheese in the middle. I woulda DIED for one. Luckly, I have a wonderful husband who went and got them for me!! As soon as I was done with those, I had to walk to the gas station for GUMMY BEARS. Particularly the orange ones. Weird.

Logans in class again...every Tuesday and Thursday night, plus a few "group" project meetings, and weekend classes. Its a tough semester, but hopefully he can get most of his tough classes outta the way before next fall :D

Not wanting to feel like hermits, we finally had some friends over Saturday night. Chelsea and Theron Thompson, Colleen Eoff, Trevor Kolden and us played a few wild rounds of Pictionary ( can get wild) and Rook. Then Sunday was a big potluck at Koldens because dear Alice Miles is heading back to the Phillapeans tomorrow.

Things to look forward to this month :

12 week apt on March 17!

Ted and Sarah are coming!

Naomi is coming!
