Easter and Life Today

Last weekend we went to Bullhead for Easter which was really fun. I always love seeing the nieces and nephews coloring easter eggs. Parker was the funniest this year because he managed to come out with a green hand. Jared won the prize a couple years ago for throwing the Easter eggs into the dye which caused quite a splash if you can imagine. Thank goodness for stripping kids down to their diapers. And next year my little one will be in on it, and if Easter falls in April this time my little one will be about 7 months old. We will see if he/she ( since we still won't find out for a couple weeks) can keep up with the cousins. I could have found out what I am having this week, but my Dr urged me to wait until a little later so the ultrasound would be more accurate although I am seriously questioning my judgement in scheduling my ultrasound around 20 weeks. I really want to know!! But alas I must be patient. My friend did the old wives tale of taking a pendulum and if it swings or goes in a circle thing and thinks I am having a girl. Also accorsing to the speed of your leg hair growth wives tale I am having a girl, but we shall see if all those wives tales hold true or if I am instead having a little boy. Any guesses from anyone?

I am settling into being pregnant. Except for that one moody day I have not had any mood swings. I know no one believes me, but according to my husband this is true. Actually my only problem is these laugh attacks. Instead of uncontrollable crying, I have fits of the giggles and can't stop laughing. Case in point, I was watching Friends on Friday around lunch time and it was the episode where Joey is trying to help Chandler and Monica cover up their relationship and they find Chandler's underwear in Monica's couch and something about the way Joey claimed the underwear to help them out sent me into a fit of giggles right when Rod and his friends walked into the house on their lunch break to play Rock Band. I started giggling so hard I was crying and just couldn't explain to these guys why this was so funny. Then today in church during Sunday school Rod starts writing me these silly notes and he kept getting funnier and funnier. I finally had to leave Sunday School because I was about to lose it. Then he blames me for being irreverent. Maybe he shouldn't egg me on when he knows I have the serious giggle problem right now.

I am really bored right now and not looking forwards to tonight since Rod is gone for his sleep study. I still have a serious issue with sleeping alone in the house. It must be from sharing a room my whole life. I sleep much better with my husband in my bed, but since I kick him and toss so much he always sleeps much better when I am gone. We will probably be the really old people who sleep in twin beds like Lucy and Ricky Ricardo although they weren't really old. Rod keeps threatening to initiate that much sooner than old age, but since we got a King size bed I don't kick him. That may be our saving grace. I can't help it, I am an active sleeper. Anyway, see below for some cute pics of my niece and nephews dying eggs.


Misha said... was so fun to read some recent info about your lives. I'm glad your pregnancy days are going well and I can't wait to find out what you're having. You are crazy for waiting...I never had that kind of self control.

I can't believe you waited to have the ultrasound! I could never be that patient!! So, the story about Roderick teasing you just really made me laugh. I can just picture it- then blaming it on you...gotta love the kids. Can't wait to hear about the baby. I am so glad things are going well for you guys. I really miss you!

Halloween in AZ

This is the first picture I could find of us. Really it is Christmas now. Rod and I had fun planning this Halloween party. I even thought it would be a good time to make costumes ( I will think more about that next time).

Europe up till now

We spent a month this summer in Europe and it was so fun!! Then we packed up and moved from Bullhead City to Tempe, AZ. Roderick is enjoying his time finishing his Economics degree at ASU ( although finals stink). I am being a dental hygienist in Scottsdale, which is very fun! I love the people I work with and it keeps me busy. We are getting ready to head up to Utah next week for our Christmas break and can't wait. This blogging stuff is fun!
