And so it begins...

I was at the mall today and noticed that Gymboree was having a giant clearance sale, so I thought, eh what the heck? Of course they had super cute clothes, but I wasn't expecting an entire collection with kitties on it! I had to buy some! (Don't worry this will be the extent of my kitten clothes). I have been saving all my "haircut" money since I've know I was pregnant to help pay for the necessities and what-not, and decided a couple of outfits were definitely a necessity. Katie Berry caught me in there and I can't decide what was more embarassing, the fact that I had just crawled out of bed unkempt and void of make-up, or that I was buying clothes so early! Ha!

Christmas Time!

Here are some random pictures of our Christmas fun. We went to my parents house this year and look forward to going to Price for New Year's to see Mom and Dad Cardon and Ben and Kim and kids! Yea!


I was writing in my journal the other day, and letting the depths of my soul be documented on paper and realized why I was having such a struggle naming the baby. I never post such personal things, but this is what I wrote:

I'm trying to think of a name for my baby, but honestly nothing seems good enough. How do you name something so much bigger than yourself? What name do you place upon the small wonder that Heaven sent that has changed you forever, that has brought you closer to the Lord, and has made you love your husband more everyday? I guess whatever it ends up being, I'm just thankful that she is mine forever.

Good News!!!

The Rahlf family popcorn balls came today! YEA!! Best day ever! I look forward to these delicious treats all year long. It's a family tradition for the Rahlf's to make popcorn balls every Christmas and they share the joy via mail. Good thing it only cost them $10 to ship! YIKES! Sorry Ashley!

Almost as exciting as popcorn balls....

Oh ya, and here's some pics of my ever growing stomach that houses my tiny baby GIRL!!! I am offically 5 months! Yea! Tim reminded me last night that my baby will grow 6x's the size she is now before I give birth, so um ya that's not scary is it? Can I stretch that far? We'll see!

That look on my face says it all.

Family Pictures

So, these are some pictures that Kelli Johnson of Cache Valley (Smithfield?) took last November, and I couldn't scan them in, so she sent some to me via e-mail! We haven't changed much (except add 10 lbs of stomach on to my pic! Ha!) so I thought I would post them. She did an amazing job and is priced VERY reasonably! (Like I feel like we're stealing from her) I have her e-mail address if anyone is interested in using her!

I did it!!!

I finally re-arranged the furniture so I could bring my heavy, awkward, fake Christmas tree (which had dead spiders in it that I had to vacuum out) upstairs to fill our hearts with Christmas cheer! After fighting Morgan to stay out of the tree and leave the ornaments alone, I finally got it all done...and then the lights on the top went out! HA! I literally prayed that they would some how magically come back on, but they didn't, and guess what? I do not care!! Who says ALL of your lights have to work? Maybe this could become our new Christmas tradition!
