Our Big News!

Hopefully this will help explain my forgetfulness (you called it LaDawn!), laziness, and lack of social interaction in general (including lacking blog posts) over the last few months! We owe a BIG thanks to Grandma Terri for all the help she's given us lately while I've been down and out. To answer a few questions:

  • I'm due August 9th.
  • This came as a complete surprise to us, we did not plan it at all.
  • In fact, I thought I was 6-8 weeks but it turns out I'm actually 12 weeks along already.
  • As of now, we're not planning to find out the sex, but we said that at the start of my pregnancy with Julie and did a 180 by the time we had our ultrasound.
  • I'm announcing this online because I'm terrible at figuring out a way to bring it up in a normal conversation without it being totally awkward (sorry Anna and Ashley, I tried today at sign class but it just didn't work!).
We can't wait for our new little one to arrive, although I have to admit I'm a little anxious to be a Mother of 3 kids under 4 years of age. We'd love to hear predictions on the sex (I'm sure Jeremy will be taking an official poll once we get a little closer to our due date!), name ideas, and any advice (especially from you seasoned mothers of 3+) for this new adventure we've started!

Snow Day!

I tried all last week to get my scanner to work so I could post something new, but this afternoon I've decided the "round file" is the best place for our scanner. Instead, I'm showing off our snow day pictures! It seems that once a year Oregon gets snow, and this weekend we got so much they canceled church after Sacrament Meeting. Daddy and Jake built a snowman in the park with the girls next door, which of course got knocked down by some local kids within 24 hours. And yes, those are big brother's socks acting as gloves for Julie's hands!
