Getting Closer

In about 3 weeks we will officially have a new member of our family!  We are excited and anxious all at the same time.  Some days we suggest that the little one come earlier and other days we tell him/her to hang tight for a couple more weeks.  No more than 3 though! :)  No over cooking! :) 

We have the nursery mostly ready.  A couple things need sewn into place but should only take about 20 minutes once I sit down to do it.  Laundry has been done and things are mostly in place. 

Here are some pictures of the belly taken a weeks ago:

The next pictures up hopefully will be of our little one!

Be Happy!

3 D ultrasound pictures at 28.5 weeks

Today the little one is 29 weeks old.  In about 10 weeks give or take a week or so this itty bitty will be putting to use all the great skills he/she is currently practicing.  Cant wait to be snuggling the little one instead of this laptop!
I am doing well.  Growing daily! I get tired more easily than normal but still haven't figured out how to slow down until my body tells me,  "It is time to rest NOW! "  Hopefully I can figure that out before too long.  The migraines have lessened but I still have a couple a week.  They are becoming more manageable. So that is good. 

Mike is doing very well.  We are both ready for spring even if the occasional snow fall is pretty and fun to watch!  It seems Colorado Springs is all about the spring snow.  Though snow coming after mid 60 degree weather is a bit difficult.  :) 

Well here are the pictures you actually came for:

"I have had enough of you people messing with me!  I want to nap!  Leave me alone!"

Hope you all enjoyed!
Take care all!  Be happy!
Love you!

20 week ultrasound

So last Thursday we went for our 20 week ultra sound. Baby is doing great! He/She is growing and developing in an appropriate manner with all the necessary parts in the right places with nothing extra. Heartbeat and movement are also appropriate.

I cant believe that we are half way done with this part of our new adventure! I am feeling good most of the time. I am exhausted after a full day of work, my SI joints and low back get angry from time to time, and I occasionally feel the need to purge the contents of my stomach but all and all I am good!

Mike is great! He has been fabulous! I dont know what I would do without him! I am constantly thinking about what I can get him or do for him to show my appreciation for all his support, love, and kindness. It has not been easy for him. I have not been my most perky, energetic, cleaning self over the last several months and he has picked up the slack and taken amazing care of me. Such a trooper! Any suggestions would be great and appreciated!

Anyhow, here are a couple pictures of our little one. They were taken with my cell phone and uploaded so if they are a bit blurry that is why. It worked better than the ones we scanned!

Have a great weekend everyone! Be happy!

I love making skirts! They are so simple and yet so much fun to make and wear! Here are a few of the ones I made this summer. Here is hoping they will fit me again by the end of next summer! :)

My Mama's Art

I have been asked many times about my mother's pottery and if I had any pictures. I have tons of pictures but all are digital! :) So I thought I would take some time to post some pictures here on my blog. She makes functional pottery that is food, microwave, and dishwasher safe as well as pretty art pieces that are not intended for food, microwave, and dishwasher. Hope you enjoy the pictures!

A dish. Great for casseroles, lasagna, enchiladas, etc

A vase or a beer butt chicken baster thingie without the holes.

A cross

A small strainer

A wine chiller

A small red dish with legs

A square plate with very small bowls set on top with condiments. Sorry the picture is so dark. New Year's Eve fondue dinner night with the lights down low and romantic. :)

I have other pictures but I think that is all I will post for now. Have a great week!
Be Happy!

Our Garden

Just a few pictures of our garden. It has been a ton of fun! We have started to harvest the swiss chard, tomatoes, rhubarb, and turnips (ate the greens and the baby turnips) and they have all been yummy!

If anyone has a great salsa recipe or spaghetti sauce recipe I would love to see it. We are going to have more tomatoes than we can eat. We will also have a ton of zucchinis so any special recipes for those would also be appreciated.

Be Happy!
