Easter Sunday


We had a great Easter Sunday! It started off with an early mass and Kory actually showed up!!! After church we headed for a quick stop for some bagels and coffee -- a usual stop for us after church on Sundays. 



After breakfast we headed home to rest for a little. We caught up with Oscar who was dressed up for the special day...


After a little resting/laundry/cleaning, we headed to the dog park before going over to Kim's/Mom's for Easter dinner. Roi and Minnie have to get a little worn out before going over to Kim's! 


The dogs love playing together!!! From left to right below it is Alex, Minnie, Barkleigh, and Roi. 


We got a great shot of Barkleigh jumping for a ball in the backyard too....

We had a delicious ham dinner followed by yummy carrot cake for dessert... with frozen yogurt as lent is over and I can have ice cream again!!! All in all it was a great Easter!

15 1/2 Weeks

I felt like this outfit did a good job of showing my bump without making me look fat so I decided to upload a picture! I am constantly touching my stomach because it feels weird to me. Guess I am still getting used to it!

15 Weeks

I am now 15 weeks pregnant! The above ultrasound was taken at almost 8 weeks pregnant. At that time our baby was the size of a raspberry. Now it is the size of a naval orange! They say that the baby is moving but I can't feel it yet. I am starting to show and will probably start adding belly pics soon.

Last week I announced to my new job that I am pregnant. Everything went really well and I am glad that I don't have to try to hide it anymore. I am really not good at keeping secrets anyways, especially not such an exciting one. I plan on working up until I go into labor, or as close as possible :)

As far as preparing for our baby goes, we didn't do too much this past weekend. Justin has been working a lot as his branch is a little short-handed right now (and has been for months). A few weeks ago we cleaned what was our office. Justin ripped up the carpet and baseboards and then painted the walls a really cool gray color.  Here was the office before...
and the nursery now...

Our next step will be flooring. We are going to be installing a laminate wood floor and are really excited about it. With Easter this weekend I doubt it will get done then, but hopefully before April is over!

New at this!

Justin originally created a blog so that we can share details about our pregnancy with family and friends, but then he lost the password so I just created a new one. I probably should have started this a long time ago but better late than never. Justin and I both read a lot of cute blogs and I am excited for us to have one of our own. Hopefully we can become really good at updating this and I hope everyone who reads our blog enjoys it!

Illumination AZ

Monday night we went to Illumination AZ  up off of the 17 and Jomax. It is the first year for this event so it was new to us. We went after ...
