97 is what the thermometer said on the car today.
85 is how hot it is in the house.
10 cm is about how fat my fingers feel.
32 is how nice and cold a glass of refreshing ice water feels!

more of a beautiful state...

a few days in wisconsin...

Its been nice to just relax, and see some old friends. We went fishing the other night, and I actually CAUGHT A FISH! I got to take pictures for Susie & Justin, and am taking Sarah's senior pictures too!

I also didn't post when the baby came. So...WELCOME JACI CLAIRE PHEIFER, (pronounced JC) born Friday night! I can't wait to meet her!! Logan already met her, and got to hold her for an afternoon...that lucky guy :)

So I'm at Mom and Dad's, and I had forgotten how beautiful it is here!! We got up at 4 and left shortly after that...and can you believe that Starbucks doesn't open until FIVE now? lazy! ;) So we went all the way to Kalispell without coffee...but lucky City Brew was open at 7! So now I'm here...and exhausted, but so glad to be here! I got a warm welcome from Mom , Sarah, Grandma P, Mary and Tedly...then went out for custard!

P.S. No baby. Im dissapointed that I didn't get to experience the birth, even cried a little...but baby's have their own timing! Now I just can't wait till it's born, and get to see it when I get back!! :)

Well, still no call in the middle of the night....hopefully tonight will be the night!! Contractions throughout the day seem to leave a promising possibility. ??
I packed and did laundry all day today, and we're leaving at 4 in the morning so I can fly out of Kalispell to Appleton! I'll be there till the 29th...leaving me plenty of time to get some appts in, take senior pictures for Sarah and hopefully some of Susie & Justin, and then get to Katie's wedding :) I can't wait to get home and see my family and friends!! I'll sure miss Logan though....hopefully I'll make it!

We had our 24 week appt yesterday with the midwife...only to find out that I gained much more weight last month than I usually do.....oops. I usually gain 2-4 lbs, but DOUBLED that! I haven't changed my eating pattern (besides conv.) too much, so maybe baby had a little growth spurt, and I have to take the blame. ;) He sure is gettin bigger..cause I feel him kicking all the time!!

Convention was so good, and I wish that we could go back again this week. I think it was Harold Hilton who shared this...but either's saved me a lot this week! There was a little girl, with a couple big brothers, making her quite a little spitfire, and pretty tough. Another schoolmate told her one day, "I don't like your face." Well this little girl just kindly looked at her and said, " Well.. I like your face."
He was mentioning the things that gave us peace...and kindness being one of them. So...I just kept saying "Well...I like your face" over and over in my head when I had to work with a very difficult person right away Monday morning.

Im just waiting by my phone, for a call from Anna saying they're on their way to the birth I will be little Ella's "helper" at the birth of their 3rd! Im very excited to not only help Ella with this experience, but witness it myself. It will make me stronger, and get me ready for our own natural birth!! So...I have a bag packed in case the call comes in the middle of the night...:)

for Ronan convention!! Adrian & Anna let us borrow their truck camper, so we've been getting that ready, and packing and cleaning like nuts. But got slowed down a little, when our studio equipment (finally) came last night! So after convention..I promise that there will be belly pictures :)

Tonight we're heading up to the grounds...maybe help (help eat at least) Mom and Dad B with their BBQ hog for all the workers, and then we're going to be taking the Ronan 2008 worker picture! So for those of you going to convention this week, we apologize in advance for the picture...haha. Just's just that we've never taken a group picture of 36 before!! Ahh!

Among our a million little packs of TUMS. The term "heartburn" comes none short of its expectation...
