Happy fourth!

 Tuesday was our 4th  year wedding anniversary!! We took some pics to remember this day. Here we are looking normal. Which picture you say?? You get to choose. Some of you know the real us & can tell the difference.

Jared got down on one knee with the boys, & asked me to marry him again. See my ring pop? Then said that one day it would all pay off. Therefore, the payday. The boys saw the candy, & asked me to marry them too. I think they thought marriage equals candy. Only with the right person!!

 It's been a great 4 years, except the whole being pregnant for most of it. I love you! I look forward to eternity with you.

Morning sickness

So give me all your tips on morning sickness. Also, I added a poll to see how long yours lasted. 

Survival skills

Because I haven't been feeling well, I have been on survival mode lately. Make sure the boys are fed & don't die. That's my only concern. I stay in bed most of the day, they come get me when they need me. So Grant comes to me & says, "mom, help me clee up" I start thinking, if Grant is wanting to clean up something, that's not a good sign. So I get up, & this is what I see.

They're aaaalllliiiiivvvveeeeeee

I thought I had killed most of my 
plants, but some sprouted!! I 
think the 3 bigger ones are 
watermelons. The tiny ones 
that are barely up are pumpkins. 
My 2 tomato plants are everyday 
threatening me to die. 
We'll see what happens. 

Nathan Had an Ear Infection :(

My kids have never had ear infections before. So this was a little trying for us to deal with. He got to keep his binkie the whole day, & always had his blanket wrapped around him. How mean of a mom am I to take these  pics??

Dear Tech support,

Last year I upgraded from Boyfriend 5.0 to Husband 1.0 and noticed a distinct slow down in overall system performance, particularly in the flower and jewelry applications, which operated flawlessly under Boyfriend 5.0.

In addition, Husband 1.0 uninstalled many other valuable programs, such as Romance 9.5 and Personal Attention 6.5 and then installed undesirable programs such as NBA 5.0, NFL 3.0 and Golf Clubs 4.1. Conversation 8.0 no longer runs, and Housecleaning 2.6 simply crashes the system. I've tried running Nagging 5.3 to fix these problems, but to no avail.

What can I do?




First keep in mind, Boyfriend 5.0 is an Entertainment Package, while Husband 1.0 is an operating system. Please enter command: ithoughtyoulovedme.html and try to download Tears 6.2 and don't forget to install the Guilt 3.0 update. If that application works as designed, Husband 1.0 should then automatically run the applications Jewelry 2.0 and Flowers 3.5.

But remember, overuse of the above application can cause Husband 1.0 to default to Grumpy Silence 2.5, Happy Hour 7.0 or Beer 6.1. Please note that Beer 6.1 is a very bad program that will download the Snoring Loudly Beta.

Whatever you do, DO NOT install Mother-In-Law 1.0 (it runs a virus in the background that will eventually seize control of all your system resources.) Also do not attempt to reinstall Boyfriend 5.0 program. These are unsupported applications and will crash Husband 1.0.

In summary, Husband 1.0 is a great program, but it does have limited memory and cannot learn new applications quickly. You might consider buying additional software to improve memory and performance. We recommend Cooking 3.0 and Hot Lingerie 7.7.

Good Luck,
Tech Support

I copied this from another blog. Thought it was funny! Of course Jared has nothing to do with it.

My swimmers

I finally blew up the pool the Martini's left when they moved far far away from us. The boys had so much fun playing in the water. 

I left the water running the whole time, I know, not saving anything. But they loved playing with the hose!

So now we have a light green circle in our yard where the pool was. 

Due date

So my due date is Feb 3rd. I wanted to scan the ultrasound picture, but it was barely a gray dot. 
How boring is that?

Watermelon, watermelon. watermelon.......

Jared always jokes about singing watermelon in the choir. Just mouth the word over & over again. It makes it looks like you know what you're doing. Tonight we went outside for some dessert. Glad we were outside, & half naked, were just able to throw the boys in the tub afterwards. It was delicious!! 

What the heck is that??

The day I popped out Nathan, I remember laying in the hospital, looking at him & thinking, well, when should we have the next one??  I have been teased by a sister in law about how easily I forget. Yup, I forget the day of.  So I started planning right then when the next was to come along. To make it at least 2 years in between Nathan & the next, we would start in May. 

So on May 6th, I saw the Doc to take out the bc. 3 weeks later, I started feeling it. Dizziness, nausea, a little more cranky than normal. Then some girlies thought it would be funny to give me a prego test for my birthday (thanks Natalie & Sharday!) So I took it, knowing what the results would be. Therefore, the purple line picture some of you were emailed. 

I think I'm only about 4 weeks along, but on Saturday morning at the Temple, I couldn't zip up my dress. I know I haven't gained back THAT much weight in the last month. I looked down, & my stomach was popping out. What the heck??  It seems that overnight my stomach let it all out. I think my body said, ok, so you're knocked up, let's let it all hang out. All my hard work on the abs gone in a night. I had to suck it in the next 2 hours. 

Even on Sunday, a very nice sister let me know she knew my secret. Said I was looking a little bit poochy. Thanks Laura!! It's not that often someone tells you that you look fat! It was funny.

So now I look like I'm 4 or 5 months pregnant instead of 4 or 5 weeks. Wonder what I'll look like at 7 months!!
