12 week ultrasound!

I had an ultrasound on Thursday to confirm my due date & just to check things out. It went really well. I finally got to hear the heartbeat! Something about hearing and seeing the baby really makes me FEEL pregnant! Anyway, I think we are right on track as far as the due date. On or around October 12th, Peytie will be welcoming home her new sister OR brother! YAY!

Here are a couple pics. (Sorry about the blurriness but it was very hard to get a snap shot as he/she is VERY active!) I'm hoping for my sake, it doesn't remain like this or I may have a heckuva time once I can start feeling it!

Jaime & Jason's Baby Shower!!

We hosted a baby shower for our friends, Jaime & Jason Weiss last weekend. It was a great time & they got lots of nice things! Thanks to everyone for coming! Here are some pics from the day.

Nana & Peytie

Jerry, Shad, Gary & Jaime - hiding behind the gift table.

Peytie (She was in heaven, with all those people in her house to entertain!)

Nicole, Jaime & Jason (Jas even got a gift too! He was ecstatic!)

"Man-Land" (All the guys hung out back here in the dining room the entire time, ooing & awing with sarcasm over all the gifts! It was pretty funny!)

Opening gifts...

I thought this was pretty cute. I joked with Jaime, saying it appears they got her as a gift. But I quickly let her know that they couldn't keep her! Ha Ha!

Rodney, being creative with the clothespins! What a dork! ;o)

Joe bought a boat at an auction a couple weeks ago so he & Jason had to try it out in the yard. Can't wait to get this pretty thing out on the pits! LOL!

Dyeing Easter eggs...

Last Monday we went over to Aunt Missy's for supper & to dye Easter eggs. Kenna was here so it really good to see her. Thanks Miss, for having us over!

Grammy Tami, Jacob & Peytie

The kids & Missy

Daddy & Peytie

Finally... the dyeing of the eggs! Matthew, Peyton, Kenna & Luke all had a lot of fun!
(So did Missy, Tori & I!)

(I have no idea where this face came from, but we see it a lot anymore! Silly girl!)

A couple weeks late...

Prom pictures! (Sorry, I'm a little late to post these.)
Heidi, Peyton & I attended the W/P promenade this year. Tori was beautiful (to no surprise). Her boyfriend, Daniel Gardner escorted her. They were absolutely adorable, as always...
Peytie had a blast looking at all the pretty dresses. Heidi & I got a good laugh as we were leaving the gym that nite - Peytie said, "That was a really good game, mommy!" (Normally, the only time we ever go to the school gym is for volleyball/basketball games.) What a cutie!
Anyway, so when we got to the promenade, I took 2 pictures and then I ran out of disc space on my camera!!! Aaaarrggghhh! So, thanks Tori- for e-mailing me your pics! I appreciate it. Don't know what I would do without my friends & family to pick up my slack on taking pictures!

I was tagged by Missy!

Here's how you play. Once you've been tagged you have to write a blog of ten weird, random things, facts or habits about yourself. At the end, you choose five people to be tagged, listing their names and why you chose them to be tagged. Don't forget to leave them a comment "You're it!" and tell them to read your blog. You can't tag the person who tagged you. Since you can't tag that person back, let her know when you've posted your blog so she can read your answers.

1. I'm pregnant! (Ok, so this isn't real surprising news but thought it deserved to be on the list!)

2. The only time I've been in the hospital was to have Peyton.

3. My favorite thing on TV is stand-up comedy.

4. I hate getting my hands dirty! (I'm actually OCD when it comes to washing my hands!)

5. My favorite chore to do is laudry. Weird huh?!

6. I never really learned to drive a stick shift! (Still wouldn't try it alone to this day!)

7. My dad once made me eat a turkey heart... and then directly after I choked it down, I threw up!

8. I have a HUGE fear of dying. In fact, Joe makes fun of me because of how uncomfortable I get just talking about it!

9. I hate to read! (I haven't read an actual book since Jr. High. I believe it was Treasure Island.?)

10. I've never broken any bones.

Tag you're it!

Dave - Well, because I can't wait to read your list. (I'm sure, like every other thing you've written - it will be hilarious!

Vanessa - I think your answers will be interesting. (Maybe some will bring back memories!)

Shane- Because you NEVER update your blog!

Mindy - Because you've been a great friend for many years & yet I'm sure I'll still be surprised by your answers. (Plus they'll be funny I'm sure!)

Aletha - Because some stuff might bring back memories & I'm sure they'll be interesting!

Some old & some new...

Ok, so I came across several pictures that I had saved on my camera & just hadn't posted. So, this is a rather large post. As you'll notice, these first few are REALLY old. (You'll not only notice the snow but also Peytie's long hair!) Enjoy!

Ridin' my bike while dad tries to clean up some of the ice in the gutters.

This was obviously awhile ago. This was the last heavy snow we got. Joe kept very busy with snow & ice removal for weeks!

My cheesy girl...

We've had several really nice days lately so we've taken a couple trips to the park. Peytie LOVES the park!

We stopped by Grammy & Papa's house on the way back from the park one day & hung out with Luke & Matthew for a bit. Fun in the sandbox!

Peyton really enjoys posing for the camera (sometimes).

Play/Fight time with Addie! (They really DO love each other.)

Well, I hope to get better about posting more often. With spring right around the corner - I plan to start taking more pictures. (I'll try.)

Happy Birthday Grammy Tami!

We hope you have a great day Grammy! We love you!
Joe, Sarah & Peytie

Well, I thought it was about time I finally made the long awaited announcement...

I'm pregnant!!!

I'm just now 8 weeks along - with a due date of October 12th. (Exactly one month before Peyton's 4th birthday!) We're all very excited, especially 'soon to be big sister'! She's asked for a baby brother and of course I've told her we can't promise that (however, mom & dad are secretly hoping for a boy too.) But, honestly - if that isn't in the cards for us, then we'll be blessed with another wonderful daughter. :)

I've had a pretty rough time with morning sickness (HA! I love how they call it 'morning'... as if it's ONLY in the morning.?) No, I've been nauseated pretty much all day long for the last 2 weeks... YUK! So, as you can imagine - I'm REALLY looking forward to the 2nd trimester!! Other than that, things have been going very well so far. We'll keep you updated on the little one & as always, "Big Sis!" :)
