Bridal Shower, Chocolates, & TREE

So Saturday was Hayley's bridal shower! I thought it was pretty good turn out, considering the snow and the person who was in charge of the invitations got them out late. So irresponsible. DO NOT put her in charge again! But, it was nice. Tiff did a great job with the goodies. You can't go wrong when there is a chocolate fountain involved! I loved the visit and it was nice to meet two of Hayley's sisters. By the way Hayley, you looked FABULOUS in your Minnie ears!
After the shower, I went to Jared and Liz's home to help do home made chocolates. HUM! It was great fun! Sorry if I embarrassed anyone. Sometimes things just come out. :) he he It was nice to visit though. Thanks every one! We made it home without a problem and just in time to see Santa at our ward party. P.S. Please save me one cherry chocolate, if possible. I'm begging.
Finally the tree. It is up and looks nice! I ended up putting all the lights on myself (I think the lights are the guys job), with a little help from Miss Rylie. But that's the way life goes sometimes. The girls, and myself, missed Garth, but I'm sure I can find something else for him to do. he he he. Anyway, here are the pictures.

This is the only one I was able to get with the 3 of them. Here is what the Monster was doing while I tried to get one more...

She is such a good fit thrower! So, here are the other two and the wonderful tree in all it's splendor!

I love my girls! Thanks for your help pretty girls! And thanks Grandpa Neil for picking it out, cutting it down, bringing it to our house and putting it up. You're the best.

It's Official!

Well sure it's been official, but now that I've finally been to the doctor and heard a heart beat, it's even more official. We're having a baby! I am 13 and a half weeks along and the baby's due date is June 14th. So, just a few days ahead of Mary, but Grandpa Neil's birthday. Really hoping to go a bit early though. :) So there you have it folks. I'll say it...we're praying for a boy, but what we really want is healthy. My next appointment is Jan. 22nd. We'll get to find out what we're having then!

I'm very thankful to have had a wonderful weekend. Although it wasn't like our typical Thanksgiving weekends, it was a nice weekend just the same. We got my parents moved with out a hitch, at least in my opinion. Things went pretty smooth. I'm just curious, how is the cat doing? Also, it was so nice to spend time with my family. It seems our visits lately have been too short, so this was a nice long visit. Thanks Jared and Liz for letting us stay at your place. And thanks Hayley for keeping the kids out of the sink. :) I think Rylie is your number one fan! Can't wait for the big day!
Garth is recovering from his c-section ha, ha. He gets pretty tired halfway through the work day and does his best to come home early, but he's doing pretty good. He's not supposed to lift anything heavier than 10 pounds, but just can't resist picking up the monster. She's a whopping 21 pounds these days. (only in the 12% for her age)
As for the kiddies, they are doing great. Taylor had her school Christmas program last night and did an awesome job. Rylie is still as busy as ever. Love me some Rylie hugs. The monster has hit the terrible twos at 18 months, but that's ok. We love her just the same, maybe a little less at moments, but they don't last that long. :)
Taylor did an "I'm thankful for" turkey at school and I just wanted to share what she wrote...spelling and all.
I'm thankful for... my family who sill love me no matter what. They will always be there for me
I'm thankful for... animal that are good to me and that are soft and cuddly.
I'm thankful for... my silky blanckey is silky! That's why I love it!
I'm thankful for... being a good artist, is fun. I don't know why but that's what a lot of people say.
I'm thankful for... my church that is fun. I have good teachers that teach me more about Jesus Christ and Heavenly Father.

I'm thankful for pretty much all those things and more (I'm no artist though, people don't say I am either.) I hope you all had a good weekend too!
