My mama.

When my mom upgraded to a new phone, my sister and I kindly set all of her ring tones for her. Which song did we deem most appropriate for her calls, text messages, and voicemails? The one and only "I got it from my mama," by Will.I.Am. Why? Because this lady here......has so many positive qualities and attributes that I hope to inherit when I become a mother. (regardless of what the song says in the verses... we liked the chorus) Chances are(fingers crossed), I will become the same kind of mother to my kids as she was to Kreg, Mark, Paige and I. I hope one day when someone will ask for suggestions on how to teach and discipline their children, just as young mothers have asked my mom... I'll be able to say, "I got it from my mama."
I remember she didn't know how to adjust the volume or noise, so in the middle of church(sacrament meeting), her phone went off.
Not only was I blessed with such a great mom, I have been so lucky to have a patient and loving mother-in-law who has accepted me with open arms into her family.
(Not the best picture of the two of was bright outside.)Aaaaand, I have been so lucky to have such great grandma's, aunts, cousins, sisters, and sister-in-laws that each have "copy-worthy" qualities. Thanks so much for the beautiful examples that you've set for me.

We started out this year so strong with blog updates...then I'm not sure what happened. So here it is, a short update on some of the things that I've meant to blog about, but haven't, include:
Mark and MAllory's wedding!
Everything was beautiful, and the sealing was so sweet. Each time I spend time with them, I know how great they really are for each other.
MOM'S BIRHTDAY! (April 15)
Our 1st Anniversary!...and week long vacation over the break.
We spent our week in Moab, starting my first quilt for the baby in Payson, going to the last Jazz game(of the regular season), spending time with family, and enjoying a break from school and work!
Finding out the GENDER of our baby. :))
We have a healthy(as far as they could tell) baby boy coming our way! I think we both kind of felt like the baby was going to be a boy, so we were delighted to see that our instincts were correct. We have yet to get anything for the baby, but that will come soon. We are excited that he will be so close to baby Oliver. I have a feeling they are already pretty good friends up in Heaven.
Work--Life at the grocery store can get pretty interesting.
Craig's Dad's Birthday!
Pregnancy, and pictures of my growing belly.
People are starting to say things to me, quite amusing really..."Whoa, KIMi! I didn't know you were pregnant, you're huuuuge!" Already people think I'm huge. really? greeeat.
We left Craig's camera in Utah at his parent's house a couple of weeks ago, so we don't have any pictures right now. Eventually I'll post them. I diiiid find my camera charger today, so expect/hope to see some pictures soon.
