I have been dying to post and say a HUGE THANK YOU to all of you that left comments over on the Making Memories site at my online baby shower! (We have been out of town this last week so I haven't had the chance to post until now.)
Thank you so much for all of your kind thoughts, advice and comments! I really appreciate all of you that took the time to post and I am grateful for all of the great advice!! I have read every single comment and there are so many things that I want to write down to remember! I am thinking about doing a mini book or something so that I have a keepsake with all of the great advice! All of the name suggestions were wonderful too - so many cute girl names out there! Thanks again everyone!!
I randomly chose 5 winners from the shower to win some fun girlie prizes and they have been announced on the Making Memories blog so be sure to check to see if you won! If you are one of the winners you can email me with your address and we will get the prize out to you!! Congrats!
We have been so busy the last two weeks. First, my mom came in to town to stay with us for a few days. It was great to have her here. Brian and I painted the nursery (pink - of course) while she kept the kids busy and out of the mess. Then we did some shopping and put the room together. Well, it is not quite done, but it is getting there. I still have a little more to do and then I will take pictures and share! It is turning out so cute - just the way I imagined!! It is so much fun! I love to just go in there and soak it all in - all of the pink and feminine things! I still can't believe it!!
Then, this last week we took a last-minute trip up to Utah to be with our parents and families for Memorial Day Weekend. We actually dropped my mom off at the airport to fly home to Utah and then we started driving up there straight from the airport! It was kind of a bummer because the boys missed their last few days of school but we had a great time so it was worth it!! There are so many cousins up there and my boys just go crazy playing and having fun with everyone!! We were planning to drive home Tuesday and then everyone convinced us to stay so we didn't drive home until today (Friday)! I am glad we stayed though - it gave us more time with everyone and the boys were just ecstatic when we extended!
We went to both of the Jazz games while we were there and that was definitely the highlight of the whole trip for Tyler and Matthew! Tyler, especially, was absolutely in heaven! Matthew had fun but he is just not as into it yet as Tyler is! We were in a suite and we literally could not get Tyler to even move out of his seat to go get food or anything! There was a ton of good food but he just wouldn't take his eyes off the court to go eat! We would bring him drinks and chips, but other than that, he was only interested in the game! He loved every second of it!!
The weather was really nice! A little chilly at times for us Arizona people, but it was a good break from the heat!! We did some shopping - for the baby, of course! I got her the prettiest blessing dress - so fun!! We also just hung out a lot and let all of the kids play! My sister had a wedding shower while I was there so I was able to go to that. It was really nice and she got a lot of fun stuff! I am excited for her!
It's nice to be home though! Now I have a busy week ahead of me - laundry, cleaning, dr.'s appointments, scrapbooking projects, etc. etc. I need to figure out a schedule now that the kids are out of school so that they don't get bored and go crazy!! I want to make sure that we are doing some fun things while they are out - probably a lot of swimming since it is so hot that there isn't much else to do (without melting that is)!! :)
Thanks again for all of the comments at my online baby shower! It really means a lot!! We are definitely on the countdown now - only about 6 weeks left until this little princess arrives! Yeah!!!
