Fun Visit

We had a great visit from the traveling Blad family last week. It was a quick visit, but we loved every minute of it. I would have put up a real fight if I didn't know we would see them again this weekend (YAY!!!). The girls were really cute with Henry, and he was pretty good with letting them play with him. I would love to write more... but there are two days left of finals, and 3 finals still to take, so I have got to get going. More to come later this week as GRADUATION approaches :)

Quick updates

Well, month 6 is here in full force. There is an updated picture of the growing belly :) Some days seem bigger than others- is that just me, or did anyone else feel that way? Anyway- I discovered this week how much more fun it is to buy baby clothes than maternity clothes. I told Charles, if this keeps up, we are going to have the best dressed baby with the worst dressed mom because I am spending my clothes money on her. I love it though... and besides- do you really feel cute in ANYTHING when you are pregnant? lol just kidding- I have it pretty easy I have to admit. So far pregnancy has been pretty fun.
We are really excited to see Lori, Jeremy, and the girls tomorrow! They are coming through for a couple of days on their way home from visiting Jeremy's family for the week. We are really looking forward to their visit!
We are down to the wire!! We have 2 more days left of class and then finals and then... GRADUATION! Wow... I can't believe I can say that!! I'm graduating in less than 2 weeks!! After that, we are headed to Texas for a few days and then we make the trek to Washington to settle in and get the house finished up. It is coming a long great! I get excited when I see pictures of the progress. Mama Himmer is working double time for us up there and we are SOO grateful to her for all of her hard work so that we can have a place to live when we get there :) I'll post a few pictures soon so you can all see how things are coming.
I had to share these two pictures of Charles during Conference last weekend. This little stitching thingy was one of my projects while we listened to the talks. After watching me through a few hours of talks, Charles asked if he could try. It was so cute I just had to take a picture to show you all.

Well- thats our quick update for the week. More to come as we have some VERY exciting things coming in the next 2 weeks. It might be a blog overload :)

Baby Quilt... projects begin :)

So this weekend with Mom, Courtney, and Alissa we went shopping for fabric and got everything for all the baby bedding. I got going right away on the quilt with the help of Mom and Alissa on Monday. Since then... I have boycotted all homework and studying so that I could get it finished because I couldn't wait to see the finished product. So- tonight I finished!! I really love the colors and fabric we chose- I can't wait to see the room when I get it all finished. I realized this weekend that I have an obsession with brown. Wedding colors, nursery colors, half my wardrobe... What next?? So many opportunities in remodeling our house, haha...I assure you... there will be more. I'll try not to get too carried away- but brown just looks good with so many colors!! Anyway- here is the quilt. It turned out a lot bigger that I thought it would, but thats ok- charles pointed out, well- she'll probably be a big baby :)

Henry's Blessing

Well it was wonderful to have lots of family here this weekend for Henry's blessing. I have been REALLY missing home lately, so it was really good to have a little piece of it here this weekend. The blessing was great! Somehow I didn't get any pictures of Henry in his blessing outfit, I know Courtney took some, so I'm going to have to get some. I'm sure Alissa has lots too. Anyway- I just thought I would put up a few pictures from the weekend. I love the first one at the top... Henry is the cutest little thing ever :)
