My Fat Prego Belly

Monday, March 30, 2009

Although I'm not a fan of the self portrait pregnant photos (only for myself that is, I think other people's pregnant bellies are absolutely adorable and love seeing them). I'm just too self conscious and hate publishing photographs of myself looking huge and pregnant. But lots of family and friends have been asking for them, so here are a few.

This was at 36 weeks:

And here I am now at 38 weeks, Quite a difference!

I honestly can't complain, I'm still feeling pretty good and I haven't hit the miserable stage yet. Which I think is a bad sign, that I still have a lot longer to go until this baby comes. But It does help that I have a very supportive husband who makes me relax each night.

We are now the Joint Frozen Fighters

March 25th 2009

We, Anna and I have decided to join together for the greater good of the blog and attempt to update more often. You will see when I blog because mine are so much cooler. No diaper party pictures or frilly froo froo stuff, just pure genius.

With that said I announce to the world that today the 25th of March, 2009 the University of North Dakota has closed it's doors due to bad weather. The last time a full day of classes was cancelled was during the infamous flood of 1997. Nuff said.

Now on to the cool man stuff. A few weeks ago I discovered when coming out to the car that there were two big cracks in our front bumper. Silly Scandinavians Sliding into our Sexy SUV. I guess people know that they have successfully stop sliding into their parking spaces when they feel the bump in their trunk. So being the studly man that I am I removed the front end of the truck and fiber-glassed the cracks to prevent a total loss and 500 bucks for a new bumper. But wait, there's more. I made the cheaper choice to defend ourselves from the Canadian Car Crunchers and put on a Bull Bar. Here are some pictures of the wonderful event.

You will notice that on the day i did the project (last Friday) it was sunny and very warm 40 degrees. I was able to work on it in just a long sleeve shirt. I took the picture of the finished product today (Wednesday) and the snow is back. What a wonderful town we live in.

Oh Baby!

Tuesday, March 3, 2009

This weekend was my baby shower and boy was beautiful!! Dusty and I are so amazed at the generosity and friendship that we have found here in North Dakota. We are extremely thankful to everyone who has helped and supported us in starting our new family. We are both so grateful for all the love and gifts we received.

My totally awsome diaper cake! Isn't it beautiful!!

Shellie and Megan

Notice the delicious sheet cake, mmmm mmmm... my favorite. Really it is, and I can't stop eating the leftovers.

We did this really fun scrap book of current news and events for the year the baby is born. I can't wait to share it with her 10 years from now and laugh at all the silly things that were going on in Grand Forks North Dakota!

I want to give a special Thank You to Jennifer and Heather and Mckenzie for all your hard work and for everything you did to make this a special day for us. Thank you for being such great friends!! We love you guys!
