30 week mark!

Well, it has happened, I made it to the 30 weeks! I am getting so excited and nervous knowing that it is only a few short weeks away until David will be here with our little family! I did have one contraction last week, which made the fact that the due date is approaching even more real.
I can't believe that I am going to have 2 kids! AAHH! And 2 boys none the less. :) It is going to be quite an adventure! But one that I am really looking forward too! I love my family more than anything in the world and know that I am going to love this little boy just the same!

Oliver wedding

What a great, wonderful day it was Saturday! I love weddings and it is even more wonderful when it is your own family member who gets married! Joseph and Aubrey got married on Saturday and it was so beautiful! It is always great when you can see 2 people who love each other so much get to have the opportunity to get sealed in the temple to be together forever! I know that they are truly meant for each other, you can just see it when you see them together, one of those couples that you look at and say, "Yeah, these 2 are just one of those perfect couples!"
I am so grateful that me and Jason were able to attend the sealing, what a wonderful experience, to be able to be there and witness your brother getting sealed to his spouse! The room was definitely full of happiness and everlasting joy!
Congrats to Joe and Aubrey! We all love you so much and can't wait to see the life that you guys will build for yourselves!

Decorating in small apartments

So when you live in an apartment there is always the challenge of how to make it feel like a home when you can't do much with it. You are not allowed to paint, you are not allowed to put nails in the walls, and you are not allowed to make any marks on the wall of any kind. Well this makes it difficult to really do much, but there are ways to decorate when you think about it.
I wanted to make Ben's room into a toy story theme. So I saw these removable stickers at the store one day and bought them. They are super cute and glow in the dark. Well, Ben's room is a room/storage room. I have to store all the baby things in there that he has grown out of like the swing and car seat and jumper. He still hasn't climbed out of his crib yet so he still sleeps in it. But I got all the stickers up and it needed a little something more. So I found these wood block letters and decided that I needed a project to keep me busy anyways. So I painted them and they went on the wall. Now all I need to complete his room in get toy story bedding, which I will probably just do when he gets a regular bed. For now his crib is still decorated in winnie the pooh.
We have a bassinet that we are going to use for the baby. So we moved that into our room and I bought some letters for his name too and decorated them. I thought they turned out so cute! So now all we need is for baby David to get here and it will all be complete! But now that I have finished I need a new project!
