November 16

Hello! Well maybe we'll be better about this than the email. We just had a great weekend with dad and Lisa. Hyrum and Rylee are getting so big! It was funny to see how Rocky reacted to having a baby around. Hyrum would just be sitting there and Rocky would clean his ears and lick his face. We took Rylee to the Shark Reef at Mandlay Bay on the strip. She was so cute looking at all the fish and sharks. She got to see a huge sea turtle, and loved the part where you were walking on glass and could see the water underneath you. We also went to the water show at the Bellagio. She loved the big booms of the water.

Hmmm...what else...we had our first ultrasound this week. We got to see our little munchkin doing somersaults (sp?). There was so much movement that the technician had to keep adjusting to get her heartbeat. OK so I hate calling our baby an we'll go back and forth from he and she. So don't worry we aren't setting our hearts on one or the other. We have names for both and want a healthy baby. Our names are Kaleb and McKenna. So I guess we will see. Hopefully we'll find out by Christmas what we are having.

By the way I'm going home for Christmas! How exciting is that!?!?! We will hopefully have a white Christmas....Matt's never had one before, so we're hopeful. We're excited to have a Minnesotan Christmas. It'll be good to be home. I haven't been back to MN since last Thanksgiving.

Ok so this week should be good. It's my first full week back to work in a while. We have had like three weeks that we are only in school for three or four days. We have a normal week and then another short week. This time of year is great because there is so much time off. But once we hit January it gets a little rough with how long we have to stay at school without any time off. Matt is finishing up his semester soon. HOpefully he will be able to get next semester's schedule set up so that he won't have to be gone for 14 hours. It's been rough for him to have to leave at 5:30 and not get back until 7:30. We are hoping to have him just go to school on his days off instead of having to work and then go to school. Its a complicated schedule.

Alright that's all for now. I hope all is well. Love you all....please send this link to anyone we may have forgotten to send it to.

First Time Around

Ok ok so I know that I should be paying attention to my nurtition teacher but as Kari can attest there in not a whole lot of learning going on here anyways so I thought that I would take a minute or two to set up a blog for the two of us to see if we can be a little bit better about it today than our emails that we started. I think that especially as we welcome our new addition to the familyhood that we will want to share photos and videos and stories with all our loved ones. Dont worry I think we will still email yall when there is an update!
