Jason's Birthday

I did it - I pulled off planning a surprise party! I thought Jason definitely deserved one...especially after all the crud he's put up with from me the past 7 months. =) We had an awesome turn out and had such a blast!! Jason came home from work, in uniform, covered in spots of oil. So the first thing he did was take a shower. =) We had tons of fruit and this delicious dip I made (just that simple recipe - 1 package of cream cheese and 1 jar of marshmallow cream mixed together. I add a little bit of vanilla. It is heaven.) and chips & salsa. After singing "Happy Birthday" to him and eating the cake I made, some of us went out to go bowling for a round, and had tons of fun! I'd say it was a success!

(I didn't get pictures of him being surprised when he walked in and I wish I did!!)

Happy Easter!

It was a gorgeous day here in Rexburg! Sunny, dry, the grass is starting to show again...but still cold. We're gettin' there, but Spring is definitely on the way! (Finally!)

Jason got a new suit yesterday (Thanks Dave & Janelle!) for his birthday coming up on Tuesday, and wore it to church. Along with his new pink tie which looked mighty dashing, I have to say!! So I dressed to match, with a pink shirt. With the sun shining, we had to take a picture in front of our apartment.

Happy Easter!

Phew! First post of our family's blog. I've seen so many other friends with these, especially ones that are having babies as well, so I thought, it's time to join in the fun! This will be a great way to show off little Kristie when she arrives in less than three months. I will be 30 weeks along on Monday, so just about 10 weeks away! We are SO ecstatic to have her join our family. At the last appointment a couple days ago, everything was right on schedule and looking perfect. I'm so grateful that everything's ok and that Kristie's growing into a beautiful little baby. She's been kicking and moving around a lot, which is amazing to feel! It makes me think "Holy cow, there really is a baby growing in there!" We have been taking a picture every month to track the progress of my growing tummy, which is pretty neat to see. I look back at some of the earlier pictures and laugh...I used to think I was very obviously showing and was frustrated when people didn't notice. Well no wonder! And when I look at this month's, it surprises me...I didn't think I changed much from the last, but the picture proved me wrong. Enjoy!
