We are having a GIRL!!!

We went to our ultrasound on Friday and the bump is a Girl. Kendall really wanted a boy, but has decided a girl is good too!! I am just excited that everything is looking good. The baby is growing and I am now starting to show. It is hard to believe that on Christmas Day we will be half way there. It seems like yesterday I was in the bathroom staring at the stick!!!

Well I seem to be doing most the work!! lol
We are almost 14 weeks and counting down the days until I stop feeling green. We had a ultrasound last week which was amazing. I had so much fun just watching Kendall's expression. It was weird to see this little person moving around like crazy and not be able to feel it. Although I have feeling that this baby does not hold still much (Kendall is the dad after all=).
We are also surprised at how many of our facebook friends are also prego!! What a baby boom!

Anyways, just a quick update!! ttyl

Feeling the itch

Well my two best friends from back in my Lethbridge days are both prego! And to add to it they are due just a day apart! And I was not even consulted!!! Ya I can't deny that I have been thinking alot about babies lately. My mother-in-law is gonna love hearing this! Just to clarify I am NOT Prego (although I may look it).

It's been a while!

Well we just got back from our big camping trip!! I took alot of convincing to get Kendall to come (he's a workaholic) but we both had a tons of fun.
First we went to Cataract Creek which we were relieved was not included in the fire ban. We had a little scare with a bear who wanted to get into the garbage bin. I was a little paranoid after that, especially since we were sleeping in a tent!!!!! Ashlee will understand. The next night I heard something and so I was scared to death, I even stared locking and unlocking my van hoping it would scare it away. We went on a nice hike to the falls (picts will follow).
Second was Wasa Lake in BC! I was soo excited when two of my uncles and their families were there at the same time. We learned new games, went hiking, went cliff jumping (into a lake) and got drug around in tubes with an awesome boat!! All in all it was a blast.
Finally we met up with the Allreds at Dickey Lake in Montana. Unfortunately we were not allowed to have campfires here=( But on the upside Kendall’s parents had their trailer so we had lots of good food. The whole crew was there (minus Steve and Tara). I took them to Big Sky Waterslides, we swam in the lake, went shopping in Kalispell and ate a lot of food. I was amazing how cheap food is in the states!!

So now we are home, tired and Kendall’s a little burnt!!

What in the world is going on? It is not supposed to be this not in Southern Alberta, especially for this long. I am looking at the thermometer in my house and it is reading 96F!! I am melting.... slowly but surely I will end up in a puddle on the floor. Even at night it is HOT! We are supposed to getting a window AC unit!!! I think I will kiss is when I feel the cold air pumping into my house)

Another Weird Thing

I was just sitting here and I thought of another odd thing I do!! I know the alphabet according to which number they are. Like A is #1, J is #10, O is 15 and so forth. What I then do is stare at things (mostly license plates) and see if I can 'cancel' out the all the numbers and letters! I know it is hard to understand. So say the Plate is: CHP 311 - well the c is 3, the h is 8 and the p is 16. So if you add the number you get 5, plus the c (3) = 8, plus the h (8)= 16 !!! Which cancels out the p!!! (16-16=0) I told you it was weird!!!

Our BIG day!!!

Everything fell together for us and on a beatiful day in Auguest we were married in the Cardston Alberta Temple. We were soo lucky that so many of our family and closest friends could be there with us.

Hello- I have no idea what I am doing!!

OK so I just cannot work this Blog Spot Stuff! So sorry Ash for not responding to you and for copying you (I have no good ideas).

I've been tagged by Ashlee to list 8 unknown/odd things about me. I enlisted my husband's services in coming up with some of these. Although he says most of my weirdness is just because I am a girl. In the end I could only find 5, anywho here we go:

5) I have no idea where my body is!!! I am constanitly walking into things, tripping over things and giving myself strange bruises. Almost everyday I have a new little something to figure out where it came from.

4) My tongue is always sticking out when I am concentrating. When I was little it was out when I was barrel racing and my Grandpa would tell me that I was going to bite it off! I thought that I had out-grown this, but this weekend when I was helping friends lay sod they were laugh at me. (Our kids don't have a chance because Kendall does the same thing).

3) I get really, really carried away when I start baking. I don't normally bake things, but once I start look out. We went to fairmont hot springs with the Allreds and I made like ten things. Sex in a pan, cinnamon buns, peanut brittle, choc. dipped pretzels..... And like half of it got wasted=( There was just too much food.

2) I have no filter, whatever comes into my head comes out of my mouth. I really am a nice person, but the things that come out sometimes.... I also forget to filter out the funny little things too. Today at work I was singing about Chocolate Milk! Yummy... My co-workers had a big laugh=)

1) I think that I am bigger than my husband! While he is not a BIG guy, I am definitely smaller. Still everytime we are getting ready I look in the mirror and make sure that I am indeed smaller than Kendall. (Don't even get me started on wearing high heels=)
