Drum Roll Please. . . . . .

OK so I figured I am not going to get any more fun comments so I guess I better Spill!!! I was going to have you all guess but some of you already know so I won't keep the rest of you waiting. Here are some hints though...

It takes two!!!

Third time is the charm for us!!!

Its a long process!!!! ( but at least not 2 years like some animals!!!)

Pink or blue?!?!?!?!?!!

I am so glad to not be sick anymore!!!

I am hoping for a girl but will take a cute little boy too!!!!

alright you guessed it.....

We are having a baby!!!! I am almost 13 weeks and things are going really well. I have an awesome Dr who takes really good care of me. I get to see my baby every two weeks when I go for my appointments. I know its seems like a lot for being so early but after having one baby die and then two miscarriages they are keeping close tabs on me which makes me feel a whole lot better. I was sick, sick for the first several weeks but I am feeling much better now. I am actually starting to get excited about this one. I am sure you can guess why I wasn't letting myself get excited. But I am pretty sure that things will continue to go well and we will have a cute little baby the first part of August.

Well there you go I guess its public knowledge now!!! Wish us luck!!!!!

P.S. now you know that I like getting your comments so please feel free to continue doing so!!!

OK so this week I tried again to make homemade Ravioli. I love pasta and especially filled pasta. Mine did not look this good but I wanted to post some kind of picture so here you go. I have tried to make this before and it turned out ok. I made the pasta dough and tried to roll it out thin enough and it worked great but then when you put the two layers together it made them kinda thick and chewy so I had heard that if you use wonton wrappers it works great so I tried it and I don't think it is worth the effort. Jason and Tolson ate it up and said they liked it but I didn't love it. I did make an amazing sauce though that I will have to do again. It was a creamy tomato sauce. YUMMY!!! so decidedly I will just have to buy my stuffed pasta until I can get a pasta roller and ravioli mold and than maybe I will try again. It is so fun to try new things in my Kitchen though. I love to cook and share the fun things I make with my family. so I consider this attempt not a flopp (cuz I created a really good sauce) but not really a success either! oh well there is always next time.

Now to try a sweet Hawaiian bread...... Wish me luck!!!

Worst Day/Best Friends!!!!

OK so yesterday was a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day! I woke up in the morning with the signs I was getting migraine. It starts with me loosing spots in my vision. I got up and took a shower and went down stairs to wait for Emma to get here. When she got here I turned on the TV ( i know, i know) and went back up stairs to lay down. She is very mellow in the am and was fine to just sit and watch. then Tolson woke up about 9:30 so I got out of bed again got him down stairs and got him something to eat. then went back up to bed. this is hard to do knowing you have a 2 and a 3 year old running loose in your house but at this point there was nothing I could do. My right arm was numb and my face was tingly! I know weird but I have seen a neurologist and he said its normal. So i decide I need to get up and see what I can do. Sometimes when I drink some caffeine it makes it settle down a little in my head so I did! and boy was that a mistake. now I was feeling horrible nauseous and had a pounding headache...... and in steps a friend. Allison had seen on facebook that I was getting a migraine and called to see if she could come and get my kids. I feel bad about this cuz I am getting paid to watch Emma so I hate to send her off to someone else. But alas I let her come and get them, then I crawled (literally) up the stairs into my dark room and got under the covers to try to sleep for a few hours. Still feeling sick and having Mt Dew in my veins I had a fitful bout of rest but it was dark and quiet so it helped. I woke up around 1pm and called Allison, only after much insisting, she brought the kids back and we played for a bit. Then I took them to my sisters and they played with her kids while I sat on the couch and talked to Michelle. By 2:30 I had mustered enough energy to get off her couch and head out the door to the Dr appointment that I had already scheduled and could not miss. On days like this I really wish I had dark tinted windows. driving all the way to the UofA was not fun, but I made it and I survived.

By the end of the day my head was not going to explode and I thought I would survive the day without loosing my cookies. My husband was wonderful and did his best to take care of me. another wonderful friend called and brought over dinner for us so I didn't even have to cook. and yes the dishes are still on the table but I don't care. I survived with the help of some guardian angels.

Well now that my terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day is over and I lived I am glad to face another day and see how much I can get done. Thanks again to my wonderful friends, husband and sister for helping me get through that!!!!!!!

Perfect 10!!!

ok so now that we have moved on to 2010 we have new hopes and dreams right? I am shooting for a perfect 10! I know that this will be hard to accomplish but I feel like if I try hard enough and practice and prepare it can be a perfect 10 ( and even if not we will try to get through the bad stuff quickly and happily and then it won't seem so bad!!!) now this perfect 10 will not be in the arena of a prefect 10 woman but in the area more like gymnastics! I figure in that sport you are judged on more then just looks! you have skill, style, precision, and I am sure many other factors that I can't think of right now. So as a Mom a Queen and a Domestic Goddess I am sure there will be many factors I can judge or be judged on!

So I don't have any great new Years resolutions for this year except that I want it to be an awesome year!!! There are a few things I am hoping will happen this year .

1. I would like to have a baby! (sorry if that is TMI!) but hey I do!

2. I would like Jason to get a job offer and assignment with the Border Patrol.

3. I would love to have our backyard finished

I am sure there are a lot more but I can't think of them right now! Well here is to a new year and to it being the perfect 10 year for all of you!!!!
