One More Sleep!

I can't belive tomorrow is Christmas Eve!! I love this time of year and always hate how fast it goes by. I am often guilty of rushing my way through the season by worrying about shopping, decorating, traveling, etc. It is way to easy to forget to think about what Christmas is all about. For me there are two main things that Christmas stands for...

1. Jesus Christ. When I take time to ponder and contemplate about the birth and life of our savior, I am in awe that he would come to this imperfect world to live and die for mankind.

2. The second thing that Christmas stands for is family. First of all, I am so grateful to be married to my best friend and to be expecting a son. Next, Berkeley and I have both been so richly blessed with families that love and support one another. We have parents that have done everything in their power to make us happy and to teach us the most important things in life. We both have siblings who are incredible people and constant examples to us. We love you guys so much.

Merry Christmas Everyone!!

Work Party

Berkeley's work, Zimmer Rocky Mtn. threw a kick butt Christmas party this year! They hired Casino Parties of Utah to come and bring all their poker tables and chips. They had roulette, Black Jack, a Dice table, and Texas Hold-Em. At the beginning of the night, everyone received a voucher for 250 points (to represent 250 dollars) and then we were set free to play. It was cool because not many people really knew how to play many of the games, so the dealers took the time to explain everything as we went. Berkeley and I played Texas Hold-Em and Black Jack pretty much the whole night. We started with 500 points combined, lost it all, got bought in on charity from one of his coworkers and then ended the night with about 490 points. Yeah...we didn't do so well. Every 50 points you had at the end of the night bought a raffle ticket for some prizes. The biggest one was a 47" HDTV, but of course our 8 tickets didn't win us anything. A lot of people did MUCH better than we did. It was a ton of fun! Thanks Zimmer! Here are some pictures from the party. We didn't get very many. Everyone was encouraged to dress up a little bit as if they were high rollers or something.

13 Degrees!?!

It was 13 degrees outside this morning!! That is so very upsetting to me. It made me start to think about the warmest, most wonderful place on Earth...Hawaii. Let's take a trip back in time and reminisce about the sunny perfect weather.

Yes or No?

I have been debating for the last month about whether or not to do a 3D ultrasound. Everyone that I have seen do it comes home with the coolest pictures and keepsakes, and I want to see my baby!! The people at my doctor's office give me pictures that I can't even decipher...looks like black and white blurs... BUT, I am due in two months anyway and the 3D ultrasounds are dang expensive. I am asking your advice, is it worth it? Let me know what you think.
