We made it through

Well we made it through the weekend just fine. Cassie participated in her first primary program and did so good. They had the kids up on the stand the whole time and it was really funny to watch the Sunbeams deteriorate slowly. (not litteraly) When Cassie stood up to sing the first time Jessie stood up and kept saying "Hi Cassie!" That was cute for two reasons because it is the first time that Jessie has said Cassie instead of Sassy and because she was so excited to see her sister. Being the emotionally as well as physically swollen mommy that I am I had to struggle to hold back my proud mommy tears. Cassies line was " I have not seen Jesus Christ, but I trust him and I will follow him" She had the three parts memorized but couldnt remember which part came first. Now that the weekend is over I have to start filling my days up for this week so I dont go crazy. I am off to the church to help out with a funeral and tonight we have a birthday party. I am toying with the idea of having a halloween party Wednesday night before trick or treating but I havent decided yet. I think maybe we will just see if the Gublers want to come over for dinner. That should be easy to cancel if this little guy decides he wants to be an October baby after all.

Still no baby

One week left and he is still a no show. I was having some regular contractions yesterday but I had been doing a whole lot of walking around so they stopped as soon as I was able to lay down. So hopefully this guy is comfortable where he is and will stay in a few days longer so that daddy can be here when he does decide to come.

Baby watch

One week and counting. I cant believe he is holding on so long. I guess he decided mommy needed to learn patience. Jeff is leaving for Salt Lake tomorrow so we had a talk with baby and told him that since he decided to hang on this long he has to hang out a few days longer. And since I really dont want to miss taking the girls trick or treating it wouldnt hurt for him to just wait and come when he was scheduled to come. Which is next Saturday. Anyway just wanted to let everyone know there has been no action yet and we would appreciate your prayers that everything will go smoothly when this little booger does decide to show up.

After reading Hillarys blog this afternoon she tagged a Heather to share 6 pieces of info that no one knows about. She had two Heathers on her blog but I am just going to assume that I am the one she tagged because I thought it sounded like fun to do. I have now realized that this will probably be harder for me than most because as everyone knows If I am thinking it or doing it you are hearing about it.

#1 sometimes I dont get out of bed til after 9 in the morning and I let Jeff get the girls breakfast. ( I think it makes me a happier mommy)

#2 The last month of each of my pregnancies I carry towels with me everywhere I go because I am afraid of my water breaking in public.

#3 I have a hard time throwing away old magazines and up until a month ago had issues of Better Homes and Gardens and Parents magazines dating all the way back to 2003.

#4 I eat in bed every night and it drives Jeff nuts.

#5 I am still holding on to my dream of being in a beauty pageant. I think I would make a great Mrs. America.

#6 I have a secret fear that no one likes me and I go out of my way to do things to make people like me.

O.K. that last one is kinda sad but I think that Jeff is the only one who knows the extent of that fear and it feels so good to share it.

I have one more that I dont think is very surprising but this is very cleansing for me.

I yell at other drivers when I am driving an dI think that every one else on the road is either and idiot or has their eyes closed.

I feel much better. Rachael you are it!

Jeff has spent this week being the handyman. He fixed our tub on wednesday and spent all day today putting in sprinklers in the front yard. He is not quite finished but got quite a bit done for doing it all mstly himself.He did let me holdthe glue when he was putting the pipe together. This picture is from our Las Vegas trip a few weeks ago. We were testing out the still picture part of my video camera. I think it works quite well.
