letters to a son

My doctor decided he will induce me tomorrow, September 30th, the day my husband Charlie and mother in law Moira predicted he would come! So, with tomorrow being the birth of our first born son I thought I would get organized a bit and write him a few letters I will disperse throughout his life. Letters from my heart full of my thoughts and feelings and also life lessons I've learned. I have written a letter for when he's the ripe age of 8 and ready to be baptized, 16 when he starts going on group dates and such, 19 when he prepares for a mission, and another letter for when he finds the woman he should marry in the temple. I must say I got teary eyed writing these letters just knowing in a few short years all of these marvelous events will happen in his life. I hope to write letters like this to all my offspring, however many there may be!

Wish me luck tomorrow, it will be a lONG day but the best day!

charlie's mom Moira is here to visit and help

So, our baby is due TOMORROW! I really thought our baby boy would be here by now but he's just so comfortable in my belly. It's been nice these past couple of days since Moira has been here, we've been to Park City and the temple and have done some shopping! If I don't have the baby by this next Tuesday then my Doc will induce me, so we'll see what happens!

baby shower #2

oh my goodness!
i have such great friends and family and today proved it.
we played a fun memory game and chatted most of the hour while devouring baseball sugar cookies and fruit.
it was splendid!
afterward, katie and I headed to olive garden for a much needed catch-up lunch with my best friends Michelle and Jessica. we talked about break-ups,babies, married life, the waitor that gave us free dessert and much more.

i feel so blessed to have the life i have, the friends i have, the family i have and this baby i have coming in the matter of 2 weeks!

cabin fever

We went up to my cousin's family cabin for Labor Day weekend!
The cabin was an hour away from any town and we didn't get cell phone service... it was a beautiful feeling. Relaxation, sleeping, games, food and fun were on the itinerary.

I spent most of my time holding this little one!
