And the New Baby is....

a Girl! How many of you guessed? We had the ultrasound this morning. Brandon was SOOOO sad. He kept telling the technician how unhappy he was. Everything looked great. The due date put me back a week, though. :( Hopefully that does mean I won't have another 10 pound baby!
Ainsley will also be very sad, as she REALLY doesn't want to share her room and said she doesn't really like babies, anyway. Typical Ainsley!

Sick of Being Sick!

In the 18 weeks I have been pregnant, I have been well for 4 days. 4! Today marks 15 days of this nasty cold. I went 10 days without sleeping (TBS and I became great late-night friends!) So, at least I've been well-rested lately. I have tried EVERYTHING to alleviate this congestion. EVERYTHING! If you have a great idea, please be sure to let me know! I've gone from tradtional meds to essential oils. You name it. I've rubbed Vicks on my feet, and oregano oil, too! Things in the humidifier, castor oil up my nose, cold busters from Jamba Juice, peppermint and eucalyptus oils, etc. Even as I write I can't breathe at all. It's getting OLD!!!!

10 year Anniversary!

Yesterday was our 10 year wedding anniversary! The time has flown by. So, I thought I would share the ROMANTIC way we spent it. First, we went to Peter Piper Pizza for a soccer party. Then I went to book club for 45 minutes. That was followed by watching the Office (our favorite) and Survivor. Thank heavens for DVR. :) Are you all jealous?
Luckily we will be going to the temple on Saturday, not to mention our celebration cruise to the Eastern Caribbean coming up shortly.

This weekend Ainsley decided to make some money. Using water bottles, food dye, water, glitter, and rose petals, she made "snow globes." She set up a stand outside our house and sold them for $1 a bottle. I've got to know if this trait is hereditary. Her dad used to sell homemade bread for $5 a loaf door-to-door, and from what I hear Grandpa Mike used to try to sell rocks to the neighbors. :) The Sims' great entrepreneurial spirit!
Brandon, however, is more like his mother. He not only helped her make them, but felt so inclined to spend all of his own money buying from her. He just wanted to make her happy.
I wanted to take a picture to post, but I think Ryan threw Brandon's 2 bottles away! I hope he doesn't find out!
